Welcome

Welcome! This website is for anyone who is seeking to learn more about God's word.

You now have the option to read our Bible studies in a variety of languages. Just select your language from the drop down box which appears in the right hand column of every page.

The good news is that I have finally finished reformatting the wonderful book of Isaiah. You can now find over 400 pages of commentary on Isaiah, which you can use as daily Bible studies or general reference. I still have many studies on other books that need to be restored and reformatted, so please check back with us from time to time.

Thank you for visiting this site and may God bless you and use you in mighty ways for your interest in learning and distributing His Holy Word. If you are a new Christian or an unbeliever seeking truth, let me suggest that you begin with the book of Matthew. The life and testimony of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will bring you joy and blessings beyond belief.

Today's Bible Study

Stand Firm on Sound Doctrine

Ephesians 4:14

14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;


As we have seen from our study of the previous verse, we begin our Christian lives as mere babes in Christ, but our goal is to mature so that the entire body of Christ can also mature "unto the measure of the fullness of Christ." Paul, however, recognizes that many of the members of the church had not grown in their faith and knowledge of Christ and he takes the opportunity in this verse to urge them to grow up.

My ministry is in the center of a small southern city where poverty, violence and drugs are a daily occurrence. Few of the people living there have ever received Christ as their Savior, but many of them have been to church with their parents or grandparents. Some of them have very strong religious beliefs and superstitions that are not consistent with sound doctrines but have been held by them and their families for several generations. The people are open to learning new things but are reluctant to give up their old beliefs. If I simply attack there superstitions, I will quickly be thought of as an enemy. Therefore, it is my calling to help them find Biblical truths that will make them question and eventually give up their old belief systems.

The danger that I face is that they are so easily persuaded by the spectacular and emotional fervor of some crafty preachers who will lead them astray for their own profit by confirming those old superstitions and adding even more to them. Until they have a sound understanding of the doctrines of the Christian faith, they are vulnerable and can be carried about with every wind of doctrine.     Read More
