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 a 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 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 – which resulted in five well-respected pastors leaving to start their own churches, bringing thousands of dissatisfied members with them.
I was 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 organizations. Of course, each of these claimed to have God’s truth – and yet they all disagreed with each other.
So which organization was teaching the doctrines of 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, because I trusted and accepted what I heard at church. Of course, our preachers reminded us that we should “prove all things.” But it was so much easier to just believe what they told us.
During these Bible studies, I discovered commandments from our Lord 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. And this deeply troubled me.
So I began to study the Bible in earnest. I read through all the New Testament gospels, carefully documenting everything Jesus taught. Then I took my list of the Lord’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 I had read in the Bible. But to my great surprise, I could not find a single denomination that taught what I had discovered. Each and every denomination ignored and sometimes even contradicted numerous biblical teachings.
How important were these biblical teachings?
It became clear that Jesus was killed to suppress them.
The books on this web site share biblical teachings you won’t hear at church. These little-known teachings will uplift your spirit and strengthen your personal relationship with God, along with inspiring your Christian walk beyond anything you can imagine.
And it’s my sincere hope that with the help of these books, you will dig into the Bible and learn about our God of infinite love, kindness and forgiveness – the same God who promises to save every human being whom has ever been born.
