In the digital age, we often use the term identity theft to describe an increasingly common means of financial fraud. But we are also at risk for a different kind of identity thievery—a spiritual fraud—that is infinitely more dangerous. With cunning skill, the adversary creates confusion and misery by sending powerful messages that contradict our individual worth, purpose, and potential. Yet, by learning and relearning divine truths regarding our eternal natures, we can protect ourselves against this dire and pervasive threat. With wisdom and hope, each chapter of this practical guide addresses a frequently-asked question that inspires and expands our understanding of our true identity, how the adversary attempts to rob us of it, and how we can prevent this spiritual crime so we can more fully rejoice as children of God.
