Are You Adopted?

This teaching is primarily about the biblical subject of adoption, but I’ve been perplexed (and sometimes troubled) for many, many years about a teaching among many of God’s children called “The Manifested Sons.”  God has not prompted me to teach anything about that subject and adoption until just recently.  This teaching will be an overviewContinue reading “Are You Adopted?”

The Lord’s Prayer…So-Called

The Lord’s Prayer—so-called—is not exclusively Jesus’ prayer; rather it is a means of prayer, a prayer outline that Jesus taught his disciples upon their request.  In fact, it seems that the only time the disciples may have asked Jesus to specifically teach them anything was when they asked Him to teach them how to pray Continue reading “The Lord’s Prayer…So-Called”

Science(s) And The Bible

The following is a brief alphabetical listing I have compiled about various fields of studies, endeavors, pursuits, and strategies used in determining the Bible’s origins, authenticity, trustworthiness, reliability, veracity, translations, interpretations, and understanding.  This is not a teaching, per se, as are most of the other 100 + entries on this website.

Baptism(s)

When most people familiar with the Bible or Christianity hear or read the words “baptize” or “baptism,” they automatically think of being baptized in water as some sort of initiation rite into the Christian faith.  Many people might be surprised to learn that there is more than one type or mode of baptism besides waterContinue reading “Baptism(s)”

Love

This is my 100th teaching I’m placing on this website.  It may or may not be the last teaching I’ll place on the website. Let me explain…  A couple of years ago, I had already placed about 60 teachings of my teachings on this website.  At that time, God spoke to me and said somethingContinue reading “Love”

About 1,000 years before the time of Jesus, the writer of the Old Testament Book of Proverbs in the Bible wrote:  “Get Wisdom!” (Proverb 4: 5)  In fact, the Book of Proverbs is nicknamed  by many people “The Book of Wisdom.”  The word ”wisdom” and its derivatives (such as wise, wisely, etc.) occurs over 500Continue reading “Get Wisdom!”

The Wilderness

Wilderness:  n.  A dry, hot place;   a wild, isolated, barren, place;  an obscure or unknown place; a deserted, desolate place. The word, “wilderness,” appears over 300 times in the Bible, making it an important subject therein simply by sheer volume of references.  Bible scholars and students have often focused on the “Wilderness experience” of JesusContinue reading “The Wilderness”

God: Relationship or Religion?

I became a follower of Jesus many years ago by inviting Him to take up permanent residence in my life in his “unbodied form” of Holy Spirit.  I knew at the time that I was establishing a vital relationship with the Living God, not “getting religion.”  It might be more properly stated  that God hadContinue reading “God: Relationship or Religion?”
