Sunday Sermon: Are you Christian enough to be published?

from Xulon Press:

We refuse to publish books that degrade the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Today more than ever, our Christian values are under attack. So Xulon Press decided early on to publish books that uphold the gospel of Jesus Christ – and none other. [Jon Huntsman and Mitt Romney: stay away!]

This isn’t true of most publishers you’ll find on the Internet. Most online and on-demand publishers gladly accept books written by authors who degrade the gospel. [Actually, they'll accept books from authors who can't even spell "gospel."] In fact, some of the leading on-demand publishers accept manuscripts dealing with the occult, New Age belief, pornography, homosexuality, and other subjects condemned by Scripture. [OH MY GOD!]

If you feel God has given you a message to put in print, [What if God wants me to write about the occult?] we hope you let fellow believers help you get it published. We want to be your partner in publishing and prayer.

We believe that one God exists in three Persons and one substance, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God who died for our sins and arose from the dead (1 Cor. 15:1-8); that the Bible is the inspired Word of God [What about all the wacky stuff in the Bible, like unicorns, satyrs, poop eating and more?] – a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path (2 Tim. 3:16); that every person has worth as a creation of God, but that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Rom 3:23); that forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are available to those who trust Christ as Savior and Lord (John 3:16); that the church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit, and it exists to save the lost and edify the saved (Eph. 4:1-16); and that Jesus Christ will one day return to earth and reign forever as King of Kings and Lord of Lords [What if there are no kings when he comes back? There are only a few around now. However, there are lots of Lords in London.] (1 Thess. 4:13-18).

Note: If your manuscript does not uphold these values, Xulon Press will reject it. If you have questions about our Statement of Faith, please feel free to contact us at 866-381-BOOK (2665).
