The underlying thesis of "A View From The Pew" deals with the institution's presentation of a god that micro-manages one's life versus a god that allows a person more personal choices, along with personal responsibility. The institution assumes the role of God's representative to the congregation and teaches them on a subject by subject basis to live and manifest their Christianity primarily through their attendance and support of the institution and its selected programs. Those institutions in question promote/emphasize (1) much praying, (2) much congregational praising of God. (3) Manifesting spirituality in their prepared "worship" programs, (4) reliance on God's constant provision for their protection as well as their every need and/or want, (5) and, acceptance of life's disappointments as having been allowed or approved by God. The congregations are admonished to read their Bible, but are taught only selective scripture that supports institutional doctrine. Some of that teaching is purposely taken out of context or misquoted entirely. God is presented only as a one-way street named LOVE. They claim that a true Christian will be an active participant in some local church. They do not want their authority challenged. Sermons have become less and less specific to audiences of a million different imaginary gods. PC's gospel of "No absolutes" has hammered specific Bible teachings into the Christian history book. The thrust of those anemic sermons is to console, without offending. Much of the ongoing ministering to the congregation comes from the group's ignorance of the Bible and how to live an overcoming Christian life. Dysfunctional families are created and sustained as sheep to be tended by the shepherd called the institution. Many institutions have taken that as their primary role. They light the fires of confusion, then chase around in their "Dear Abby" role trying to put them out. It's another form of job protection, perpetuated by use of the "mushroom theory." This book suggests that a "born again" believer and follower of Jesus Christ has been restored to an individual relationship to God the Father, through Jesus. It suggests that that relationship cannot be monitored or censored by men's doctrines or by a controlling institution, which is nefariously representing Christ's Church.

How can we understand what we do not know? How can we comprehend what is outside our experience? God is holy; we are sinful. God is all-powerful and all-knowing and perfect love ... and we are not. He knows us completely, and it is the desire of his heart for his children to know him. The best teachers will patiently lead students one step at a time, using what students do know to increase their understanding of what they need to learn. God is the master teacher. God reveals himself to his children, in the Bible and in everyday experiences, using what they do understand to help them learn the truth about who he is. He takes what is familiar to them and says, “At least in some ways, I AM like that.” It is not enough to have knowledge of what God said; we must have understanding of what he wants us to learn. Examine thirteen metaphors God uses to describe himself and find deeper understanding of this God who wants you to know him.

God’s Plan of Creation: Written for All God’s Children Who Want to Know and Are Not Afraid to Think offers scripturally informed answers to questions arising in people’s minds as they wonder about the nature of God and His designs for all of creation. By using a three-part structure that examines the Siege, the Legacy, and the Story, Robert N. Smith brings to bear both his long study of the Scriptures and his insights to provide guidance for all “who want to know and are not afraid to think.” The first part, the Siege, presents an inquiry and review of humanity’s continuing efforts to gain hold of its Legacy. The focus of the second portion of God’s Plan of Creation, the Legacy entails the gifts that God has chosen to give to humanity and that people today have received from the hands of their forebears in the faith. Finally, the Story displays a visual timeline of creation, plotting out key points of theology and cosmology. It is laid out landscape, therefore it does not fit the book format. Part 3 is in progress and will follow soon. If you see the world in all its beauty, complexity, and diversity and you find yourself wondering about the God who made all things and about His desires for how humanity fits into His plans, then God’s Plan of Creation: Written for All God’s Children Who Want to Know and Are Not Afraid to Think will pour out insights worth pondering. It takes a fearless and eyes-wide-open look at God and His plans and invites you to join in a journey of vision and discovery.
