Believe in God-But How?

This very brief booklet answers the question "How can I believe in God when I can't see Him?" Answer: You can't -- unless God 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 come to know God in no uncertain terms. Knowing God is not a "religion;" it is a life long experience. Religion is, or should be, the external evidence of the internal experience of knowing Him.

 

Fate of Unbelievers (the book)

The final punishment for sin is not being tormented in hell for the rest of eternity. The final punishment for sin is death, exactly as Paul states: "The wages of sin is death" (Romans 6:23).

There are scriptures that are quoted to support the doctrine of eternal torment, but they simply do not do so. This book addresses those scriptures. This book also addresses 50 other scriptures that teach death as the final end of those who reject Christ.

In order to accomodate the doctrine of eternal torment, its proponents re-define "death." There are 10 biblical words for death and none of them mean anything but plain and actual death.

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.

Understanding proper biblical doctrine in this area is extremely important because the doctrinal error of eternal torment affects other doctrines. For instance, it has a significant effect on the doctrine of predestination. The doctrine of predestination teaches that God predestines certain people to come to Christ. That means that God predestines others not to come to Christ. If the doctrine of eternal torment is true, then all of those that God does not predestine to come to Christ will, in the end, be effectively predestined to be burned alive forever. On the other hand, if the doctrine of eternal torment is error, then all of those that God does not predestine to come to Christ will die.

God does not predestine anyone to be burned alive forever. God does determine when each of us will be born and when each of us will die, but saves some from eternal death.

This book is in a discussion format (question and answer) and in 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 read the brief introductory page to see how navigating through this electronic book is done.

The book is an excellent resource no matter which side of the question you may happen to fall upon. Read this book. You no longer have to believe in a loving God who burns people alive if they don't come to Christ. That is absurd. Why would He do that?

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

Last pdf revision: February 11, 2019.

Click to download a copy: Endless Love

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

The answer to marital discord is not a method. The answer to marital discord is love. Real actual, experiential human love. There is only one place to get true love and its not you. It never was you. Remember?

We can't create love. We can't fake it and sometimes we can even control it. It is outside of ourselves and it is not physical. But where is it and what made it to away?

The Creator created love. He is love (First John 4:8 "God is Love"). Love does not naturally die or naturally go away. The only thing that causes love to die is sin. This book discusses two extremely common relational sins that cause love to die.

Lost love can be retreived. We are talking miracle here, miracle that you can see and experience. But it's not free. The price of the miracle is obedience.

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

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.

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 (evolution).

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

This controversial work is a condensation of the book of the same name (above). It examines the scriptures relating to the eternal fate of unbelievers and shows that there is no basis in scripture for the doctrine that all of the unredeemed will be tortured for the rest of eternity.
