 Lisa Bevere
Author of #1 Book, "Adamant," Cautions Christians Using Social Media: Just Because It's Viral Doesn't Mean God Approves
By Leah MarieAnn Klett , Christianpost.com

  Bestselling author Lisa Bevere has been a constant on the Christian Bookseller's charts in recent years with the #1 "Without Rival," and her recent children's book, "Lizzy The Lioness." It runs in the family as her husband, John Bevere, has also reached the top of the charts with "Killing Kryptonite," "Driven By Eternity," "Good or God," and "The Bait of Satan."

  On the heels of that reputation, Lisa entered the current Top 50 list at #1 with "Adamant: Finding Truth In A Universe of Opinions."

  In an era of "fake news," she encouraged Christians to use social media to promote "truth" rather than "opinion," warning that just because something goes viral doesn't mean it has the approval of God.

  "There's a huge danger when it comes to social media, because there's often no accountability," the New York Times best-selling author and internationally known speaker told The Christian Post. "The Bible is very clear that many of us should not be masters or teachers, but we can translate that to bloggers and posters.
  "The Bible says we're going to give an account for every idle word, and I think that can be applied to what we post on social media. We need to use social media to declare truth."

  Among Christians today, there's a "mob mentality" where "people can say whatever they want to say, and when it goes viral they think they have the approval of God," the speaker and author contended.

  "But that's not the case," she said. "Sometimes, when things go viral, you're not impacting people, you're infecting them. You're pointing out problems and not solutions. If you don't give people an answer and point them to Jesus, you're just creating more of a problem."

  Bevere, who with her husband John founded Messenger International, an organization committed to developing uncompromising followers of Christ who transform their world. In Adamant, she encourages believers to look to God for truth and certainty instead of relying on the world's ever-changing opinions.

  She told CP that far too many people today have "high opinions" and "low awareness" of what Scripture actually says.

  "I believe that when you're under authority, you have authority," she contended. "The number of followers you have doesn't give you authority. The number of people that read your blog doesn't give you authority. Being under the authority of the Word of God and being under the authority of the relationship of a community of believers, these are the things that give us true authority."

  Before posting on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, Christians should ask themselves: "Am I actually advancing the Kingdom of God, or am I causing people to recoil? What can I say to challenge people to have a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ?"

  "I should be aware of Who I am representing when I post," Bevere said. "I don't have this freedom to post whatever I want on social media. If I am a Christian, I'm an ambassador of Christ, and I don't have the right to take people emotional hostage and process my own pain for everyone to hear."

  Within the Church, there are two extremes, Bevere explained: Those who are known for what they're against, and those who claim to be the "cool new people" and reject absolute truth.

  "But if we are truly people of God, we are for absolute truth," she said. "Truth is adamant, but it's also tender. Truth without love is harsh, but love without truth is a lie. God is truth and God is love, and so we have to make sure we walk in both of those when we are posting on social media or any platform.
  "The more access you have, the less privilege you have to say whatever you want to say."

  Because truth, according to Scripture, isn't fluid, Bevere admitted it's impossible to be both biblically sound and politically correct in today's culture of moral relativism.

  "I think Jesus did a great job with it, but the Church gets so wrapped up in small questions when we already have the big answer, we already have the solution," she said. "Do I believe marriage is between a man and a woman? Absolutely.
  "Do I believe abortion is sinful? Of course. But the Church is rampant with divorce and jealousy, and it's very confusing to people in the world."

  "We need to live the truth in love so people can actually see our lives rather than just hear our words," she added.

  In a culture where truth changes with the trends, Bevere encouraged Christians to not only preach the truth with boldness, but live it with confidence.

  "If we can actually begin to live the transformation that the truth provides, it'll be woven into the fabric of our beings, even if we don't understand," she said.
  "God knows what I need. We the Church must humble ourselves and stop making excuses and say, 'God, we want to live the truth before you and speak it in love.' The Church has a moment to be radically transformed."

"Lizzy The Lioness" Interview
The courage to ask for help

By Cat Acree, bookpage.com

"Brave happens in the context of community where the voice of everyone is heard."

  Bestselling author Lisa Bevere has inspired millions of adult readers with books such as Without Rival and Lioness Arising.
  Her first picture book, Lizzy the Lioness, with illustrations by Kirsteen-Harris Jones, is the story of a playful lion cub who's tired of being little. When Lizzy wanders away from the pride, she finds herself facing danger that she's just not big enough to overcome.
  As Bevere makes very clear with this sweet story, being little is never a weakness, and sometimes asking for help is the bravest thing to do.

Why was this an important story
to share with young readers?

  We live in days fraught with confusion and peril. Our children have never been so inundated with conflicting messages and the demise of social boundaries. Our day demands bravery. I wanted children to know that they are never too young to have a voice and that there are times when the bravest things they can do is to ask for help.

Lizzy the Lioness was inspired by your own "Lizzy," your granddaughter.
You've said that strength and bravery are "particularly important" concepts to share with your granddaughter. Why?

  I love Lizzy's fierce innocence. She is strong and wants to do everything that her big brother and sister can do. I didn't want to see this desire to put her at risk. I decided to fictionalize a story I'd read where a pride of lions rescued a little girl from her abductors in Ethiopia. I thought it would be fun to make Lizzy the littlest lion cub and create a fun story where being little wasn't a detriment to being a hero.

This isn't your first time using the metaphor of a lion to address the behavior of humans. Why do you return to these regal creatures?

  Lions can't help but inspire. . . . They are fierce and nurturing, free and yet intimately connected to their pride family group. In the wild plain of life, they know who they are, not to mention, they roar.
  I wanted this visual and relational connection made for the readers.

  Brave happens in the context of community where the voice of everyone is heard. I wanted to empower and validate this connection for children.

While Lizzy the Lioness has a great message for kids, there's an author's note at the end for parents, teachers and guardians, with conversation starters for talking to kids about asking for help. What do you think is the most difficult thing about talking
with kids about this subject?
And what is the best way to approach it?

  I found that my boys wanted to unburden their soul as I was putting them to bed. I had hoped to make this release happen when I was wide awake and ready to be wise at 4 p.m. Bedtime was not my time of choice, so I felt that adding in tools that could make intentional conversations happen would be helpful when parents were tired and children were tender.

  Also children follow what we model even more than what we say. Somewhere down the line, adults have thought asking for help is a sign of weakness rather than a sign of strength. I wanted to sneak in the message to parents and mentors that it is courageous to ask for the help they need as well.

So often in children's literature, the youngster at the heart of the book must navigate tough situations all alone.
Why was it important to encourage kids to turn to the adults in their lives?

   Whether we feel qualified or not, related adults (parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and guardians) are their best guides, not peers. Our vulnerability and experience can go along way to teaching others from both our mistakes and successes.
  To that end, I want to create intentional conversations that located specific needs so the adults could equip the children with whatever they needed.

What do you love most about writing?

  Writing gives me the ability to mark trails that others may follow.

What's next for you?

  For now I'm going to keep climbing the trail set before me.

"Adamant:
Finding Truth In A
Universe of Opinions"



What is truth? This has become the defining question of our time. But while everyone has an opinion, truth, it seems, is getting harder and harder to find. Perhaps that's because we are searching for something when we should be
looking for someone.

Truth has a name.
 
Truth is not a river that changes with the cultural currents but a rock and the cornerstone of all we are and ever dream to be. Adamant will be an anchor for your soul in a raging sea of opinions, giving you a clear sense of direction in a wandering world.
