Why I Wrote These Books
At the age of twenty-seven, I enthusiastically accepted Christ. I then joined a large Protestant church and was baptized. Being dedicated to my new church, I spent over 22 years attending church services, Bible studies, and volunteering for every kind of service. Eventually, I was ordained and became the youth pastor. I saw myself as respected church leader who was well on my way to the Kingdom of God — but I could not have been more wrong.
Toward the end of my experience with this Christian denomination, the senior pastor died and another man took over. This new pastor determined that certain church teachings were wrong, and began to change doctrine. This caused a great disturbance that split the denomination into several competing groups. Then several well-respected pastors left to start their own churches, drawing thousands of dissatisfied members with them.
I became very confused. I had found what I considered to be Christ’s religion, but now my church was flying apart and dividing into multiple disagreeing and competing organizations. Furthermore, each of these organizations claimed to have God’s truth, while stating that all the others did not.
So which organization was teaching the doctrines of Jesus Christ?
I was determined to find out.
So I entered into an intense Bible study. For many months, I spent all my spare time studying the Bible. I had never studied like this before; instead, I just trusted and accepted what I heard at church. Of course, our preachers always reminded us how we should “prove all things.” But I was too busy (or perhaps too lazy?) to study on my own.
During these intense personal Bible studies, I read several of our Lord’s commandments I had never heard at church. After attending weekly church services and Bible studies for over 22 years, my church had never quoted these commandments. This discovery troubled me — and I began to wonder of if I was attending the wrong church.
So I decided to research the teachings of other Christian denominations. And in preparation for doing so, I read through the New Testament gospels, carefully documenting everything Jesus taught. Then I took my list of Christ’s teachings and compared it against the doctrines of major Christian denominations. I analyzed the teachings of Baptists, Methodists, Lutherans, Adventists, Evangelicals, the Assembly of God, the Church of Christ and several smaller denominations. I was determined to find a church that taught what my church was not preaching. But to my great surprise, there was not a single Christian denomination or church that taught what I had discovered in my Bible. Incredibly, each and every Christian denomination ignored these same teachings!
How important are these teachings?
Jesus was killed to suppress them.
Executed to Suppress His Message shares biblical teachings that Christian churches never mention — and chief among these is our Lord’s absolute promise to save every human being whom has ever lived on planet earth.
These little-known teachings of Christ will uplift your spirit and greatly strengthen your personal relationship with God. So I encourage you to dig into these books and learn about the God of infinite love, kindness and forgiveness that institutionalized religion has worked so hard to hide.
