Buy the Truth and Sell it Not.
Proverbs 23:23

THE INCOMPARABLE CHRIST
When we are born again we are enthralled by what He makes us to become
And when we are old in Christ we're awed to see the things He saved us from.
It's only then that we can know what He has really done.

Believe in God--But How?

Revised April 7, 2018

Download the most recent version here

This very brief booklet answers the question "How can I believe in God when I can't see Him?" Answer: You can't unless He makes Himself known to you and He does. This booklet shows how to know Him for yourself.

If anyone trusts in Christ and yields to His scriptural commands, God will make Himself known to that person and that person will comes to know God in no uncertain terms. Knowing God is not a "religion;" it is a life long experience that is beyond all other experiences and cannot be described.

 

Fate of Unbelievers (the book)

Revised July 16, 2018. Revising The Effect of the Error on Other Doctrines

Download the most recent version here

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

This work shows that although there is a hell, there is no 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. Open your concordance and see.

God does not resurrect everybody who did not believe in Christ and burn them alive for the rest eternity. Scripture says nothing of the kind. Eternal torment is a Catholic myth. The eternal punishment for sin 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 and there are 50 scriptures that say that the ultimate end of the unredeemed is eternal death.

And there is nothing in scripture to say that death in the Bible is separation from God (and not actual death).

This book is in both a discussion format (question and answer) and a treatise format (explanatory and expository) 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. Please look at the introductory page on navigating through this (electronic) book.

How many times did Jesus speak of eternal torment? Never. How many times does scripture speak of eternal torment for unbelievers? Never. How many times does scripture even mention eternal torment? Once and then it is specifically for Satan, the antichrist and the false prophet and no one else. Check your concordance.

The doctrine of eternal torment is an error that adversely effects other (true) doctrines such as predestination, substitutionary atonement and others discussed at length in Appendix 7 of the book.

 

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.

The confluence of scripture and 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) and there three other loves in the language of the Bible. And there is no English translation for agápe.

THIS LOVE JUMPS OVER ALL THE WRONGS AND RESENTMENTS, ALL THE ARGUMENTS AND ALL THE ANGER; IT SKIPS OVER ALL THE COUNSELORS AND ALL THE METHODS. IT IGNORES THEM; IT DISSOLVES THEM AND CREATES HUMAN LOVE WHERE HUMAN LOVE HAS LONG SINCE DIED. HOW? OBEDIENCE TO SCRIPTURE. BUT WHAT SCRIPTURE?

The answer to marital conflict is not doing it all over again hoping for the best and pretending to find it. The only real answer to marital conflict is the return of true love. There is only one place to get it and its not you.

True love is outside of ourselves. It always has been. We can't manufacture it, we can't fake it and once we have it we can hardly control it. It is outside of ourselves. Where does it come from?

This love is where God intersects with His creation. Why? Because He is love (First John 4:8). That is why you have to obey Him. This book tells what to obey and why.

We are talking miracle here. Miracle that you can see and experience. But it's not free. The price is obedience.

If you are not ready to obey Him, then come back when you are. This book is not for you.

This very short booklet is an analogy of the experience of salvation.To be read in one sitting.

 

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 May 15, 2018. Revised comments.

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 work shows that although there is a hell, there is no 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 shows how they simply do not teach it. The book also lists the 50 scriptures that teach death as the final end of the unredeemed rather than eternal torment.

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. For anyone 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. The doctrine of eternal torment is a false doctrine that adversely effects other (true) doctrines such as predestination, substitutionary atonement and others discussed in Appendix 7 of the book.

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.
