If you've never read the Bible before but would like to start, pick up the New Living Translation (it is a new translation, not a paraphrase), the version that accomplishes an amazing balance of reliability, beauty of language, and readability. If you're a good reader, familiar with scripture, the King James Version is wonderful. But try comparing different versions, interlinears, and paraphrases. Immerse yourself, today.
Always pray ask God's blessing wisdom to lead you guide you into all truth
Are we "tripartite" beings? In other words, are you a "mini trinity?" We all of us have an "immortal soul"
don't we? That's Biblical, isn't it? Inside of us, don't we have a soul? And also, a "spirit?" That's a fact, right? And that's why we'll either "live forever" in heaven or "live forever" in hell, correct? Is Plato your Messiah?
What's this fruity teaching? What's fruit? Why should we need it? DO we need it? Should we go out and pick
it off the trees? Can't Christians be "carnal" if they so choose? Chuck Swindoll teaches about "carnal christians," so it must be true, right? And how do the "fruits" work with the "gifts?" How about tongues? A gift for TODAY?
SABBATH! Hey, that's for the Jews. For Israel, not for Christians! Christians keep Sunday holy, well, kind of,
right? And we really only need to take "One in Seven" off, right? Not that Old Testament "Seventh," right? Christians only have Nine Commandments, and we keep Sunday because Jesus was resurrected on that day, correct? Oh, really?
The Numeral "Seven" is God's Perfect Number, with the seven churches, candles -- the righteous man falls
seven times, the sevenfold Spirits of God, Creation Week, seven dips in the river. God seems to have a penchant for the Number Seven. Have you ever noticed just how prevalent the Number Seven really is in the Bible?
It's only been around for about 100 years or so, but today in Christianity this strange belief is HOT! Why?
It all boils down to THIS strange belief: that God has two special groups of people, One, His True Chosen -- Israel; and Two, the Church, Christians. Jews are saved by keeping the law, while Christians are saved by faith. (?!?!)
Christians are lobbying the government to reinstate the 10 Commandments in schools and courtrooms, but
really, we've thrown out the Fourth one, because the New Testament claims it was nailed to the cross. Didn't Jesus destroy the Law? Plus, how could Moses write the law in a book, and supposedly God wrote it with His own finger? What gives?
These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. Acts 17:11

Did Jesus give us Ten Commandments, or Two? Or do the TEN come from the TWO? And if so, exactly HOW?
The Great Commandment, Love God, concerns the first Four of the Ten, and the Golden Rule, Love you neighbor, concerns the second set of the Ten, Numbers 5 through 10. Is this Biblical? Did Jesus give us a NEW Two, or did He reiterate?
What about Sunday? Isn't it special? Didn't Jesus ask us to keep it in remembrance of Him? Didn't He tell us
to go out and teach Sunday sacredness to the world? Isn't Sunday the "Christian Sabbath?" Sure the Jews have the "Sabbath," Saturday, but the New Testament commands us to keep Sunday holy, doesn't it? A memorial of the Resurrection?
Is it alright for Christians to eat pork? Didn't Jesus change the nature of animals with a wave of His hand?
Civil laws, health laws, moral laws, ceremonial laws! What's a poor seeker of truth to do? My pastor and teachers say that we have the freedom to eat anything we want to eat? Is that true? But it seems God says something different!
"The Secret Rapture." Don't be "left behind." Right? You've heard from almost ALL denominations as
they discard the Biblical teaching of "Christ's Second Coming" for an elitist doctrine that cannot be discovered in the Bible. What is the truth? And where does the Bible say those people will be "taken?" You will be surprised.
Read the Bible for Yourself. Know the Bible. Cherish it.
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15
us having a clue? Or is it the Holy Spirit leading us into all truth, interceding for us and structuring our prayers, empowering our thoughts, edifying us, truly, equipping us to serve God? What is the truth about Praying in the Spirit?
What exactly IS "Praying in the Spirit?" Is it really a way for God to have a discussion with Himself without
fact your own individual, personal BODY? Does God care what you do with your body? Is your body supposed to be a holy instrument of God? Does the Holy Spirit really live INSIDE you, or is that just an expression of mere words?
What exactly IS the "Temple of the Holy Spirit?" Is it all the believers in Christ joined together? Or is it in
You've heard that the "devil can't understand you" when you "pray in your prayer language." Where in the
world did such an idea originate? You might be surprised. The Bible teaches "order" and "understanding" and "clarity," and yet the false teaching stresses the exact opposite to all of these, confusion, lack of understanding, fear...
What exactly IS "Praying in the Spirit?" Is is some weird way for us to gain magical powers? Talk to
God so that the devil can't understand? Or is there a plain meaning to the concept? Something like allowing God to lead you in prayer, teach you what you need to know, give you UNDERSTANDING instead of confusion?
Wolves in sheep's clothing. It's a funny image. But Jesus warned us about the bad people who mean
us evil, and yet they put on all the clothes of Christianity. They talk the talk and speak the speak, all the while they are leading the sheep away from the True Shepherd. Who are they? Why do they do it? And WHY do we buy it?
There are people who snarl when they hear the word "Sabbath." We're NOT under the law, they
shriek, and yet they don't mean all 10, just the 1, and yet the Bible says if you break 1, you're breaking all 10. Why hate a law given before sin entered the world? If the Sabbath is gone, then so is marriage. What gives?
Does God make sense? Or is He arbitrary? Does He do things just "cuz He's the king?" Is God a
god of Nonsense, or SENSE? When you accept God, do you immediately become an idiot and send money to TBN? Or, in fact, does your IQ increase, your wisdom magnify, your knowledge deepen and broaden?
Didn't the Disciples come to Jesus and ask Him: Master, tell us about Life after Death! And then
Jesus proceeded to tell this true story about His friend Lazarus, who died and went inside Abraham's Bosom, and a rich man who kowtowed to the "Prosperity Gospel" saw Laz from hell! Isn't this the way the story goes?
a TRUTH that false Christianity attempts to discard. Have you sought God with your whole heart? Is His Law the apple of your eye? Have you ever called on Jesus to save you? Is His Word the light for your path?
