Author Biography

In his younger days the author was a free thinker. In the late1980’s, the Lord planted the seed of faith [word of God] in his heart in an evangelical service. At around the same time he came to
believe in the existence of God through an experience he had when his mother was critically ill. About 15 years later and at the lowest point of his life while he was crushed in spirit, God called the
author to salvation in the evening of 7th December 2003. He subsequently became a member of the Wesley Methodist Church in Singapore, and has been attending the Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) classes since August 2005.
In the beginning of his Christian life, the author assumed that every professing believer was a true convert. Later on it was from the late Bishop J. C. Ryle’s paper, “Having the Spirit,” he learned that
there was such thing as “not having the Spirit.” This implied that there were professing Christians who had not been born again. Since then the author has developed a keen interest in the topic of
false conversion, and the idea of writing a book ensued. Throughout the writing project the author was working under
inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit. Otherwise it would be an impossible task for a layman like him.
Base on the revealed truths in the Bible, his research and interactions with other Christians, the author is fully convinced that multitudes of professing Christians have been deceived into believing they are the true converts. Unless someone raises .........

Alfred Chong, author of “Raising the Alarm over False Conversion”, is a man on a mission to save countless false converts - Christians who professed to be filled with the holy spirit but who are not actually true converts. So, they are not born again and are destined to eternal damnation. Matthew 25:46 says “Unless a carnal man receives a salvation during his lifetime or before the Lord Jesus returns, he will end up in eternal misery.” Chong helps us see the hidden, dangerous situations that are present in our churches, e.g. lack of strong spiritual leadership, strife within the church, false teachings, etc. But there is hope. True believers can learn to distinguish a real conversion and take action to educate themselves about God’s ways of dealing with salvation.

The cover design is graphic and explicitly captures the book’s message. The 100-page guide for spiritual salvation is fast-paced, comprehensive and succinct. The author patiently and expertly discusses the subject in layman’s terms. The flow charts, format and explanation of terms helped convey key concepts. Alfred Chong’s steadfast dedication to Christian teaching is evident. Predictably, some readers may find his work controversial and heretical. Previously, he was a free thinker. However, the author was called to salvation in 2003. Chong is a member of the Wesley Methodist Church located in Singapore. “Raising the Alarm over False Conversion” is highly recommended to anyone interested in deepening their understanding of the Bible.
