Comfort in Theology

Revised September 4, 2017

Download the most recent version here.

This is a pamplet written to Christians who are reaching the end of mortal life.

It answers the question, "I am dying! How can I believe that I will never die?" 

This pamplet shows why John 11:25 is wholly credible and consistent with other scripture: ""He who believes in Me will live, even though he dies. And everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die.

 

Endless Love

Revised July 19, 2017

Download the most recent version here

This book was written to facilitate the restoration of human love and the preservation of marriage and family.

A glance at First John 4:8 shows that love is the core of Christian theology: "God is love."

The confluence of scripture to human love is far greater and less understood than most evangelicals realize. For instance, all of First Corinthians 13 refers to only one love (agápe) out of four different kinds of love and yet there is no English translation for this particular love. So what is this love?

Agape is the power behind the cross (John 3:16) and it empowers all of the other human loves. The scriptural dynamic of love, especially this love, is immensely important.

Real scriptural love saves marriages and saves families.

The scriptural answer to marital conflict is not figuring it all out. The scriptural answer to marital conflict is divine intervention.

A Reason for Adversity

Revised November 12, 2017 (significant revision of first 4 chapters)

Download the most recent version here

This is a short book written for Christians who are facing adversity and do not understand why. A Reason for Adversity looks at scripture to see how scripture answers to the age-old question, of why God permits pain and adversity. This work also addresses the avoidance of adversity through obedience to scripture.

Time can blunt the sting of emotional pain, but understanding where it fits can put it to rest.

 

If You Believe in Evolution

Revised March 11, 2017

Download the most recent version here

Did God really create you or are you the product of millions of unobserved extremely fortunate accidental mutations?

Recent discoveries have uncovered a complexity in life that could never be explained by accidental mutations and dying animals, as taught by evolution.

Academia is captive to a theory that a creation of absolutely vast and inconceivable complexity happened because of accidental mutations and environmental stresses that caused some animals to live and others to die. But when the facts are brought to light, that belief is simply unreasonable.

So, what is the evidence against evolution? This work provides a quick and easy read of some examples that could never have evolved.

Fate of Unbelievers (the book)

Revised March 25, 2018. The print version of this book will be published.

Download the most recent version here

This is a lengthy and comprehensive book that disproves the doctrine of the eternal torment of the unredeemed from scripture.

This is a comprehensive work showing that although there is a hell, there is no actual scripture that says the unredeemed will be tortured forever in hell or anywhere else. The only reference to eternal torment in all of scripture refers to the ultimate fate of Satan, the antichrist and the false prophet in the lake of fire.

God does not resurrect all of unredeemed humanity and burn them alive for the rest eternity. The eternal punishment of the unredeemed is eternal death, not eternal torment--exactly as Paul states in Romans 6:3, "The wages of sin is death." There is no scripture that says the wages of sin is eternal torment.

This book is structured around the passages that are most often quoted to prove eternal torment for the unredeemed and it lists all 50 scriptures that teach death as the final end of the unredeemed.

The book is written in both a discussion format (question and answer) and a treatise format (explanatory) with extensive references in both the Greek and the Hebrew.

The electronic version of this book includes a comprehensive navigation system making it easy to move around the book and never lose ones place. If you are interested in this topic, the new navigation system renders this book to be a valuable scriptural reference no matter which side of the debate one happens to take.

How many times did Jesus speak of eternal torment? Never. How many times does scripture speak of eternal torment for unbelievers? Never. Check your concordance.

How many times does scripture mention eternal torment? Once and then it is specifically for Satan, the antichrist and the false prophet and no one else. Check your concordance. It is a false doctrine and it adversely effects other (true) doctrines (e.g. predestination, substitutionary atonement and others).

No matter which side of the question one happens to fall, this book is an excellent resource for any student of the Bible.

The book is best read by Adobe Reader with the "Fit one full page to window" selection made. On a mobile or tablet device, use Adobe Reader and select view > single page.
