Are We Being Deceived? is an exciting and revealing journey. Through fictional character, Derrick Holt, Are We Being Deceived? takes a bold and controversial look at the problems with mainstream religion and the current destructive theology concerning the perceived nature of God.   

It faces, head-on, the ideologies of Judaism, Christianity and Islam that are causing the disunity we are experiencing in the world.  It provides an objective, unbiased look at this important topic that must be examined if we are to stop the intolerance and violence prevalent today. 

Is religion still relevant?  Is there a God? Does mainstream religion offer us the truth or are we being deceived? 

Are We Being Deceived? is the result of 15 years of study and research. Its goal is to provide objective information gathered over these years to help individuals in their search for a spiritual path that is closest to the truth.

Order Are We Being Deceived? in eBook or paperback

It seems that the objective of most non-fiction books is to prove a point or validate a perspective or opinion.  That is not the objective of this book.  I have attempted, as much as possible, to eliminate any bias or opinion that I might have concerning the subject matter.  I have tried to research and write objectively.  The goal of this book is to find truth.  If not definitive truth, then to come as close as I can using logic, reason, common sense and the information that is currently available. 

This book and video series is not for everyone.  For those who are convinced that what they believe is truth to the point of narrow-mindedness, this book is not for them.  For those who have been blinded by tradition and are satisfied to continue in the ways of ancient mythologies, this book is not for them.  But, for those who are diligently seeking truth, who are not satisfied with contemporary religion, who are bothered by the inconsistencies and contradictions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, this book is for them.

I believe it was the Buddha who said,
“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.  Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.  Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.  Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.  Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.  But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it."

Writing this book has been an amazing journey for me.  I am happy to share it with the hope that it will make your journey easier.
