Endless Love

The revised version of Endless is available now.

A glance at First John 4:8 shows that love is the core of Christian theology ! Why? Because God is love. Thus, a theology that excludes love excludes the experiential presence of God.

The confluence of scripture to human love is far greater than most evangelicals realize. For instance, all of First Corinthians 13 refers to only one of four Greek words for love (agápe) and yet there is no English translation of the scriptures that differentiates between these four loves.

First John 4:8 declares that God is agápe. Thus, agape is supernatural. Agape is the power of the Living God. It is the way He acts. It is purpose. It is the power behind the cross itself (John 3:16) and it empowers all of the other human loves. The scriptural dynamics of love is immensely important. Yet, many pastors ignore them.

Real scriptural love saves marriages and saves families because it creates harmony, peace, wisdom and righteousness.

It is our sincere prayer that through the scriptures disclosed in this book marriages and families will be saved. Perhaps yours. Read for yourself how scripture simply skips over the tangle of human disputes and heals marital relationships by divine fiat.

A Reason for Adversity

Revised July 24, 2016

This is a 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, "Why does God permit man to suffer adversity and pain?"

Time can blunt the sting of emotional pain, but understanding where it fits can put it to rest.

It is our sincere prayer that this book will help those who are facing the lion of adversity.

If You Believe ...

Revised May 13, 2015

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, which is the reason given by evolution. At a certain point simple common sense must look at the incomprehensible organization and complexity of life and demand the conclusion that life could never have evolved, but must have been created. That point has been reached and passed, but it has been obscured for reasons other than scientific integrity.

Academia is captive to a theory that has created libraries full of books based upon a creation of absolutely vast and inconceivable complexity that is supposed to have occurred by accidental beneficial mutations and the dying animals. But when the facts are brought to light, the belief is absurd.

Just for instance, it is ridiculous to surmize that accidental mutations caused by cosmic rays and various other things, and the environment (dying animals) created a living computer (the human brain), which is fully programed and timed to the nanosecond, saves and indexes the memories of a lifetime and is capable of executing 124.8 quadrillion organized computations in one second. That is approximately 5 quadrillion organized computations in the click of a camera shutter (1/25 of a second).

It is absurd to conclude that this was created through chance beneficial mutations, dying animals and environmental pressures. Rational people believe do not believe that theory because it is rational. They believe it because the alternative is unacceptable.

Evidence against Darwinism is irrelevant to the Darwinist:

"Even if there were no actual evidence in favor of the Darwinian theory ... we would still be justified in preferring it over rival theories [creationism]."
Richard Dawkins, The Blind Watchmaker (NY Norton, 1986), 287, emphasis in the original.

That statement, made by the world's most prolific proponent of evolution, is the apex of a closed and unscientific mind.

So, what is the evidence against evolution? If you believe in evolution, what is it that you really believe? This is a quick and easy read.

The Fate of Unbelievers (the condensation)

Revised August 11, 2016

This controversial work examines the scriptures relating to the eternal fate of unbelievers. Does scripture say that they are tormented eternally or does scripture say that they die?

There is no scripture that says they will be tormented eternally. Check your concordance for yourself. Instead, all references to the eternal fate of unbelievers refer to death. The eternal punishment referenced in scripture is eternal death, not eternal torment. This booklet examines relevant scriptures.

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 say that the final end of unbelievers is death? Last time we counted, 48 times. This is a pivotal doctrine. Check it out.

Fate of Unbelievers.

The Fate of Unbelievers (the book)

Revised June 11, 2016

The Fate of Unbelievers (previously titled A Scriptural Discussion of Hell) is a comprehensive work that demonstrates that scripture does not teach that the unredeemed will be tormented eternally. The doctrine of eternal torment for the unredeemed is a theological doctrinal error. The only mention of eternal torment in scripture (check your concondance) is in reference to the eternal of Satan, the antichrist and the false prophet. For the rest of the redeemed, scripture teaches that the eternal fate of the unredeemed is death, not eternal torment.

This is a major revision that includes a comprehensive navigation system making it extremely easy to move in the book and never lose ones place. If you are interested in this topic the new navigation system renders this book to be a valuable scriptural reference.

God does not resurrect anyone for the purpose of burning them alive forever. He resurrects them for final judgment and then, because the wages of sin is death, He imposes the penalty of eternal death. Scripture teaches that this is an eternal punishment (not an eternal punishing). Scripture specifies that it is eternal to clarify that this death (the "second death") is permanent, whereas the first death, the death of the body, was not permanent. Hell is certainly scriptural, but eternal torment for the unredeemed is not.

The book is written for two levels of study. The first level is a question and answer format contained in narrative, story form. The second level consists of comments and word studies for a more in depth theology. The book includes 5 appendices, copious references to scripture and the original Greek and Hebrew.

No matter which side of the question one happens to fall, this book is an excellent resource for any student of the Bible.
