Why I Wrote These Books
At the age of twenty-seven, I started attending a large Protestant church. And within a few months I enthusiastically accepted Christ and was baptized. I then 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 was a respected church leader and well on my way to the Kingdom of God — or so I thought.
Toward the end of my experience with this Christian denomination, the senior pastor died and another man took over. This new senior pastor determined that certain church teachings were wrong and began to change doctrines. This caused a great disturbance that split the denomination into several competing groups — which resulted in several well-respected pastors leaving to start their own churches, with thousands of dissatisfied members following them.
I was very confused: I had found what I thought to be Christ’s religion, but now my church was flying apart, as it divided into multiple disagreeing and competing organizations. And each of these organizations claiming to have God’s truth, while stated that all 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 personal Bible study. For three 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 pastors always reminded us how we should “prove all things.” But I was too busy to study on my own – and it was so much easier to just let the preachers tell us what was in the Bible.
During these intense personal Bible studies, I read many of our Lord’s commandments that I had never heard at church. After attending weekly church services and Bible studies for over 22 years, my church had never once quoted these Scriptures. This discovery deeply troubled me — and I began to wonder of if I had been attending the wrong church.
So I began to research the teachings of other Christian denominations. And in preparation for doing so, I read through all 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, Assemblies 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 all these teachings.
How important are these teachings?
I now know that Jesus was killed to suppress them.
So I wrote the books on this web site to share these biblical teachings I had never heard at church. These little-known teachings will uplift your spirit and strengthen your personal relationship with God, along with inspiring your Christian walk beyond what you can imagine.
It’s my hope that you will dig into these books and learn about our God of infinite love, kindness and forgiveness – the same God who promises to save every human being who has ever been born!
