Well there were two things that I thought about:

"bottomless pit" as in Revelations (end times) and "pit experience" as in Daniel, Joseph, etc had to go through (ie: testing, trials/tribulations, humbling,etc)

I don't know who that pastor is and I am unfamiliar with his works but I wonder if that particular book has anything to do with what I've just mentioned? just my thoughts so pray on what I've said

Since you were mad, I wonder if the symbolism of the book being "in a pit" could represent "isolation" (being left by itself--not tryin to mess with it?") As far as the book is concerned, people that take christianity too seriously could be the ones that ARE isolated (ie: left by themselves, feel alone, etc--no one really wants to be around them sometimes, I guess depending on the view point). ONe thing I am learning: YOU HAVE TO HAVE A BALANCE! please pray on what I've said

since it made you mad, perhaps you cast it into the pit?

Or perhaps it is the pits and not what our Lord would want you reading.

Just a thought here.

I agree with Connie actually. Regarding the subject matter of this book, there can be fanaticism in anything, but our walk with the Lord is quite a serious matter. I believe this is what Jesus was referring to when he mentioned the"narrow gate", and there would be few who find it. Of course there are those who will use what Jesus said to promote their own agenda, craziness, or a false holiness, but it doesn't mean we can ignore the true meaning of what He was saying.

I believe if we are truly serious and heavenly minded, than a "balance" in all things will come naturally. In my experience of walking with the Lord....it can truly be like walking a tightrope at times in discerning all the voices that want to lead us astray. Continue to keep your eyes on Him dear one....you are doing great!
