“Answers To Objections on TLIG”
By: Jim Peters
December 2, 2008
Over the past few years, a number of objections have been heard by this author and in general by those
who evangelize on the inspirations of True Life In God , received by Vassula Ryden (“Vassula”) most
commonly referred to as the “Messages of TLIG”.
This paper will not address objections from non Christians, as the underlying premise is that non

fiction. The “flash in the pan” and the latest novelty may just be wrong!
Yet, God is not dead! God would not remain silent in our times, when we live at an age of
debasement and sin that is unrivaled in the history of mankind! Consider, for example the global sin
of abortion: Estimates vary, but it is reasonable to state that in the last 35 years since abortion has
