  THE BASICS  


GOD IS A FAMILY CALLED THE TRINITY

AN EXPLANATION OF THE 'ONENESS' OF GOD, OF THE TWO-STAGE EXISTENCE OF BOTH THE SON OF GOD AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, OF THE HETEROSEXUALITY OF GOD, AND OF A HUMAN RACE CREATED IN THE IMAGE AND LIKENESS OF GOD.

AN EXPLANATION OF THE FUNDAMENTAL MORAL PRINCIPLE UNDERLYING GOD'S RELATIONSHIP WITH MANKIND.



DEATH AND THE JUDGMENT OF GOD

AN EXPLANATION OF THE FOUR MAJOR JUDGMENTS OF GOD DESCRIBED IN THE BIBLE:
1) IN EDEN
2) AT DEATH
3) AT CHRIST'S SECOND COMING
4) AT GOD'S GREAT WHITE THRONE



GOD'S FORGIVENESS

AN EXPLANATION OF HOW GOD COULD ALLOW A RIGHTEOUS MAN (JESUS CHRIST) TO SUFFER A CRIMINAL EXECUTION, AND THEN BE ABLE TO TURN AROUND AND FORGIVE WICKED PEOPLE AS A RESULT.



TESTING CHRISTIANITY

AN EXPLANATION OF HOW WE CAN PUT THE CLAIMS OF CHRISTIANITY TO THE TEST IN OUR EVERYDAY LIVES.




  PROPHECY  


AN INTRODUCTION TO PROPHECY

AN EXPLANATION OF THE FIRST TWO LINKS IN GOD'S GREAT 'PROPHETIC CHAIN': THE ABRAHAMIC COVENANT AND DANIEL'S 70-WEEKS PROPHECY



THE OLIVET DISCOURSE

AN EXPLANATION OF THE THIRD LINK IN GOD'S GREAT 'PROPHETIC CHAIN': JESUS' OLIVET DISCOURSE, GIVEN TO HIS DISCIPLES TWO DAYS BEFORE HIS CRUCIFIXION.



THE TIMETABLE FOR JESUS' RETURN

AN EXPLANATION OF THE FOURTH AND FINAL LINK IN GOD'S GREAT 'PROPHETIC CHAIN': JOHN'S LITTLE BOOK FOUND IN REVELATION 10-13.



UNDERSTANDING THE BEAST

AN EXPLANATION OF THE BEAST OF REVELATION, AND ITS ALLIANCES WITH THE FALSE PROPHET AND THE CITY OF ROME.



ISRAEL IN PROPHECY

AN EXPLANATION OF THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BIOLOGICAL JEWISHNESS AND SPIRITUAL JEWISHNESS, AND OF THE GLORIOUS FUTURE OF ISRAEL WHEN ITS CITIZENS WILL BE BOTH BIOLOGICALLY AND SPIRITUALLY JEWISH.



THE CITY OF ROME IN PROPHECY

AN EXPLANATION OF THE CITY OF ROME'S RELIGIOUS AGENDA SINCE IT BECAME THE WHORE UPON THE BACK OF THE BEAST IN 70 AD



THE UNITED STATES IN PROPHECY

THE UNITED STATES IS DESCRIBED IN BOTH THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS. ITS RISE AS A 'LITTLE HORN' IS DESCRIBED IN DANIEL CHAPTER 7, AND ITS FINAL DESTRUCTION AS THE SPIRITUAL HEART AND FINANCIAL CENTER OF ROMAN CATHOLIC 'BABYLON' IS DESCRIBED IN REVELATION 18.




  DOCTRINE  


BAPTISM AND PENTECOST

AN EXPLANATION OF THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE WATER-BAPTISM THAT SYMBOLIZES IT, AND OF WHAT REALLY HAPPENED AT PENTECOST.



THE TRUTH ABOUT ORIGINAL SIN

THE BIBLE STATES THAT DEATH HAS COME UPON EVERY MEMBER OF THE HUMAN RACE BECAUSE EACH ONE OF US SINNED WITH ADAM IN EDEN. BUT SINCE THE DAYS OF AUGUSTINE, CHRISTIAN 'THEOLOGIANS' HAVE DENIED THIS TRUTH, AND HAVE INSTEAD BLAMED GOD FOR MAN'S MORAL CONDITION.



THE NECESSITY OF CHRISTIAN PERSEVERANCE

MANY CHURCHES TEACH THAT ONCE A PERSON HAS BEEN BORN AGAIN, THERE IS NO WAY THAT HE OR SHE CAN FAIL TO ENTER HEAVEN. THIS IS FALSE, AND A REPETITION OF SATAN'S GREAT LIE: 'YOU SHALL NOT SURELY DIE IF YOU DISOBEY GOD'.



PREDESTINATION vs. FREEDOM OF CHOICE

MANY PEOPLE STRUGGLE WITH THESE TWO TRUTHS. THE SECRET LIES IN DEFINING EACH ONE OF THEM CORRECTLY, ACCEPTING THEIR APPARENT CONTRADICTION, AND APPLYING THEM AS GOD TELLS US TO; BY FOCUSING EXCLUSIVELY UPON OUR OWN MORAL ACCOUNTABILITY.



SCIENCE AND THE BIBLE

AN EXPLANATION OF HOW GOD IS REVEALED IN OUR UNIVERSE, OUR UNIQUE LIFE-SUPPORTING PLANET, AND IN BIOLOGICAL LIFE ITSELF. THIS REVELATION OF GOD'S POWER AND 'INTELLIGENT DESIGN' HAS NEVER BEEN MORE CLEARLY SEEN AND UNDERSTOOD THAN IT IS TODAY.
