Judgement of Mankind


John 5:22 “For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:”
Romans 2:16 “ in the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.”
God the father has appointed all authority of Judgement to his son, Jesus Christ. All of humanity will be at the mercy of Jesus on this Great and Glorious day.
When you speak to most people, they are aware of Judgement of mankind at the end of the world. Which isn’t surprising as it is written in the book of Revelation.
When you ask most people they will tell you that all of mankind is judged at this final event where they believe that the righteous will live in the new heaven and earth, and the wicked will spend eternity in condemnation inside the lake of fire and brimstone along with Satan, death and Hell.
This is a false view of this event and will lead many into condemnation, why?
Because misunderstanding or interpreting Revelation 20:11-15 incorrectly can lead you to either believing in false doctrines or reaffirm your false doctrines.
The truth is, the bible speaks about two distinct Judgements.
This is the purpose of this study.

The Judgement Seat of Christ

2 Corinthians 5:9-10 “Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.”
This seat was what Paul referred to in 2 Corinthians 5:9-11 as the "judgment seat of Christ." The Greek word used to describe the judgement seat of Christ is the word “Bema”; it has the meaning of “stepping up onto” like the Olympic platforms you see when the athlete is rewarded. Paul says as a result of which we labour, whether we be present or absent from the body.
Verse 10 Paul says we must all appear before our Lord Jesus Christ, he means all Christians, Believers! Paul uses the word “we”, this is important to know, as in believers not “they” or “them” when Paul speaks. In this context, Paul explains to us that this is where the Christian will receive an evaluation for works done in the body, whether good or bad. The word “bad” does not mean evil or wicked, the Greek word used here is “Phaulos” which means worthless in this context. Paul speaks of this Judgement of Christians in the book of Romans as well, let’s examine the text.
Romans 14:10-12 “But why dost thou judge thy brother? Or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. 11 For it is written, as I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. 12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.”
Here again we see Paul say that “we” as Christians will stand before the judgement seat. We are to give an account of ourselves to God, notice Paul how references God here? The Deity of Jesus anyone???
What is this account for? Is it for our sins? As Christians do we get judged twice? The answer is a resounding, No!
As believers, our sins were judged at the cross which was achieved wholly by our Lord Jesus Christ himself. God punished his son for our wickedness, this exchange made it all possible for believers to come to the father through his son.
Hebrews 9:28 “ So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.”
Isaiah 53:12 “Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.”
The judgement seat of Christ is for believers/Christians receiving of rewards, not the judgement of our sins or inequities, as we become born again at that moment Salvation is received, God will remember no more.
Hebrews 8:12 “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.”
Hebrews 10:17 “and their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.”
Pretty clear with the above two scriptures, but if you still need more clarification, King David wrote in the Psalms the following.
Psalms 130:3-4 “If thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared”
Psalm 103:12 “As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us”
Our Transgressions has been removed from how far? As far as the east is from the west! That’s forever!!
Why does God remember sins no more? How can God remember sins no more??
1 John 1:7 “but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”
By the BLOOD of our Lord Jesus Christ, our sins are ALL gone! AMEN!

What will take place at the Judgement
(Bema) seat of Christ?

What are the things the Christian believer will receive during this event?
Romans 14:10-12 is very clear about what will take place; this judgement can be compared to financial accounting where your deeds done in the body; will be tried by fire, it is NOT about Salvation which the free gift of eternal life by the grace of God through Faith.
1 Corinthians 3:11-15 “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13 every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.”
There is no other foundation other than the Lord Jesus Christ himself; no man can lay down what is already laid.
Every man’s work will be revealed, whether it is of precious stones, gold, silver, hay or stubble will be tried by fire. Look at the materials that are being listed, they are the value of the deeds whether they are done for the glory of the Lord or for man’s own benefit; will be tried by fire.
If the deed has been done to advance the kingdom of the Lord it will stand the test of fire and will be reward to the believer accordingly, if the deed has been done for one’s own benefit; it shall been like hay and stubble and the believer will suffer loss of reward. Notice in verse 15 he says he shall suffer loss, but he himself shall be saved.
Again, if this were a judgement of our sins why would every man have praise of God if this were a time of condemnation?
1 Corinthians 4:2 “Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful”
1 Corinthians 4:5 “Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.”
Look, there is only one punishment for sin, for the unsaved person it will be the Lake of Fire for eternity. For the child of God, the payment for sin was made on the cross; the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ was enough, satisfied the Father’s Wrath never having to make that payment again and is available to all who would believe on Jesus Christ.

The Great White Throne Judgement

When will this Judgement occur?

This judgement will occur after the millennial reign of the Lord Jesus Christ on Earth with his elect.

Who will be judged?

All the unsaved; who are the wicked and nonbelievers will be Judged.
Revelation 20:11-15 “And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”

John sees a Great white Throne, on whom sits there; causes the earth and the heavens to flee. What a terrifying situation this is going to be and that there is going to be no place found for them.
John then states that he saw the dead, the dead refers to the spiritually dead; the unsaved, the people that did not believe on the Lord. The Judgement is Not for Christians! Salvation is not the issue, for those in this judgment are described as dead, meaning they are spiritually dead. They have no saving relationship with God and hence, no mediator.
1 Timothy 2:5 “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;”
Romans 8:1 “There is therefore now, no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”
Those who refused the free gift offered by the Father which was brought on by the Lamb of God place themselves in the following position –
Hebrews 10:31 “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”
And those who try to come to the Lord through their own merit and works will receive this response.
Matthew 7:21-23 “ Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
Those standing before the Throne come from all walks of life but are now being judged on the basis of their works. The judgment is based on what occurs in the books which record their works and whether their names are in the Book of Life.
John 6:50-51 “This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. 51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”
The Book of Life contains the names of God's elect. They will experience neither condemnation nor judgment. They are not among the dead, for they are alive!
After physical death, the soul continues to exist. Before the resurrection, the soul of the believer is in the presence of God awaiting eternal reward. The soul of the unbeliever is in hell awaiting final judgment.
The lake of fire is a punishment of everlasting torment prepared for Satan, his angels and all who refuse the gift of eternal life through the Lord Jesus Christ. When this is completed, only one last event is scheduled for the Great White Throne Judgment.
Revelation 20:14 “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.”
The Apostle Paul said it to the Corinthians.
1 Corinthians 15:26 “The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.”
And Paul proclaims this message…
1 Corinthians 15:54-55 “So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?”
Then we will look forward to the new Heavens and the new Earth where there will be no sorrow, crying, and pain as the Lord will be our light.
Revelation 21:4 “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”
               Revelation 22:20-21
“He which testifieth these things saith, surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. 21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.”

Testing a Prophet

Testing a Prophet
Where do we start? How are we to know if someone or an institution who/which claims they are a Prophet(s) of the LORD to be true?
To answer these questions, we only need to turn to the Almighty’s word found in the Holy Bible (KJV)
God provides the test in the book of Deuteronomy for those who claim to speak for the LORD.
For Example, Joseph Smith Jr. of the Mormon LDS Church clearly falls under this test.
From Joseph Smith’s own words, the Lord has set him apart to deliver to an apostate world. So we must ask these questions, is he truly a prophet of the Lord?

Deuteronomy 18:20-22 “But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. 21 And if thou say in thine heart, how shall we know the word which the Lord hath not spoken? 22 when a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.”
Verse 20 gives us reasons why a Prophet may die.
1.       If the Prophet speaks a word in God’s name that he did not command.
2.       If the Prophet speaks in the name of other Gods.
Verse 21 asks the question, how should we know what the word is that is not spoken of the Lord?
Verse 22 answers this question; if the prophet has spoken in the name of the Lord, and the thing does not happen. The Lord has NOT spoken it.

With this information, we can apply this rule to help us discern, anyone who claims they are a prophet of the Lord.

Joseph Smith and his Prophecies

Joseph Smith made many prophecies throughout his life time with a few, recorded in the Doctrines and Covenants. We will examine a few of them using the above principals we have learned from the Lord.
1.       Prophecy that the temple would be built in Missouri within Smith's Generation
a.       Doctrines and Covenants Section 84:2-5,31
                                                               i.      The Mormons were driven out of Jackson County in 1833.  They were not gathered there in accordance to this prophecy dealing with building the temple.
                                                             ii.      The Dedicated Temple Lot land is owned by Church of Christ which had a dispute with The Reorganised Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (RLDS) in the 1890s which the RLDS had initially won then the decision was overturned on appeal by the Church of Christ.
                                                            iii.      The Prophecy clearly states that the generation present given by Joseph Smith would not pass away until the temple was built in Missouri, Independence. This Revelation given through Joseph Smith the Prophet, at Kirtland, Ohio, September 22 and 23, 1832 clearly FAILED.

2.       All Nations would be involved in the American Civil War
a.       Doctrines and Covenants 87:1-3
                                                               i.      The imminent break out of civil war in America was common knowledge to most people, so this cannot be considered information that no one knew.
                                                             ii.      War, did not pour out to all nations as Joseph Smith stated.
                                                            iii.      Everyone knew it was between the northern and southern states, the southern states tried to gain favour from Great Britain with the exporting of wool from the southern states as they depended on winning the war with the help of Great Britain, however the Great Britain would remain officially neutral and neither any other nation was involved. Clearly another FAILED Prophecy.

There are other prophecies he has spoken of that did not come to fruition but as we can see, God tells us a prophet needs only have one prophecy fail to make him NOT a prophet of the Lord. This can be applied to any man or a woman that claims to be a true prophet of the Lord we only need to apply the test found in Deuteronomy, you say, what about prophets that don’t prophesy?  Then they are not a Prophet at all.

Are Jesus and Satan Spirit Brothers?

      How are Jesus and Satan Spirit brothers? Jesus a created being? What scriptural evidence is there in the bible?

The Bible says the devil is a created being, created by God
  • Ezekiel 28:14-15 “Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. 15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.”

In order to establish if Jesus is the devils literal spirit brother then we need to establish who Jesus is, and what of his nature.

Who is Jesus and what is his nature?

According to the bible, we will establish Who Jesus is. Jesus is the most important person who ever lived, since he is THE Saviour, THE Christ. He is NOT half God and half man, he is 100% divine and 100% man; these are his two natures. Let’s look at his divine nature.

Jesus is God!

Jesus is the WORD
  • John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The WORD was made FLESH, who lived among us!
  • John 1:14 “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”

Jesus and The father are ONE.
  • John 10:30 “ I and my Father are one.”

The Apostle Thomas says the following to Jesus.
  • John 20:28 “And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.”

Jesus says to the Jews before they pick up stones to stone him…
  •  John 8:58 “Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM.”

Isaiah says the following about the coming of our Lord.
  • Isaiah 9:6 “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

Jesus with the Father in the beginning discussing the creation of man
  • Genesis 1:26 “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”

Jesus’ throne, O God is forever and ever!
  • Hebrews 1:8 “But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.”

All Things created by Jesus both visible and invisible.
  • Colossians 1:16 “for by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:”

Matthew quotes from the Prophet Isaiah.
  • Matthew 1:23 “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.”

We are in his son Jesus Christ, The one true God.
  • 1 John 5:20 “And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.”

Jesus is God in the flesh.
  • Colossians 2:9 “For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.”

His disciples worshiped him.
  • Matthew 28:9 “And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.”

Again, God is mentioned as manifest in the flesh.
  • 1 Timothy 3:16 “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.”

That is more than enough scripture to prove that Jesus is God in the flesh. If Jesus is God and the creator of all things, how can the devil be his literal spirit brother if the devil was created?

The Heretical View Of God Was A Man Like Us With A Tangible Body of Flesh And Bones

Was God, once a man like us?

What evidence is there to show that God is once a man with a body of flesh and bones like us in the bible?
I believe this is not true; there are many bible verses that reveal what God is, and that he is SPIRIT.

God is a Spirit.
  •  John 4:24 “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”

God alone is immortal who lives in unapproachable light! No one has or can see him!!!
  • 1 Timothy 6:15-16 “which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; 16 who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen!

God is incorruptible.
  • Romans 1:22-23 “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.”

God is everywhere.
  • Psalm 139: 7-10 “Whither shall I go from thy spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; 10 even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.”

Jesus himself defined what spirit is – and pointed out that it is different from a human, physical body. After his resurrection, he told his disciples in Luke 24:39.
  • Luke 24:39 “Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.”

God is invisible.
  • Colossians 1:15 “who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:”

Invisible again…
  • Romans 1:19:20 “because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”

Well, here is another passage, Yep God is invisible.
  • 1 Timothy 1:17 “Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.”

Here is an example of Jesus before he became flesh, the Gospel according to John is a confirmation of the fact that Jesus existed as God before his incarnation – before becoming a human being. He became flesh – he was not already flesh. God took on the form of a human being in his Son, Jesus Christ, in order to communicate directly with us and to complete our redemption.
  • John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
  • John 1:14 “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”

What of those passages that seem to speak of God in human terms?

Those are called anthropomorphisms, that is, descriptions of God’s being, actions and emotions put in human terms.

Let’s take a look at some of them.

By the power of his mighty arm
  • Exodus 15:16 “Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O Lord, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased.

God is also pictured as having a face, hands, fingers and a back.
  •  Psalm 27:8 “When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek.”
  • Psalm 10:12 “Arise, O Lord; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the humble.”
  • Psalm 88:5 “free among the dead, like the slain that lie in the grave, whom thou rememberest no more: and they are cut off from thy hand.”
  • Deuteronomy 9:10 “and the Lord delivered unto me two tables of stone written with the finger of God; and on them was written according to all the words, which the Lord Spake with you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly.”
  • Exodus 33:23 “and I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.”

As well, God is described as talking, walking, laughing, and weeping. Such anthropomorphisms are poetic symbols or metaphors representing that which would otherwise be indescribable, because God in his being is invisible and unknown. Such symbols of God’s being are condescension’s to us – put in words that we can understand. We have to have some way of describing God’s relationship to us. The only way this can occur is through symbols that are understandable to our finite minds and experience.

The nature and size of the universe itself tells us that it would be impossible that a God made in the image of humans could create, maintain and control the universe.  

Yet, precisely the opposite is said of God – that the universe cannot contain him…
  • 2 Chronicles 2:6 “But who is able to build him an house, seeing the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain him? who am I then, that I should build him an house, save only to burn sacrifice before him?”

Anthropomorphism, as mentioned earlier, makes God in our image and forgets that we are made in his image. 

Man has been given the ability to reason and to express many divine qualities, such as communication, invention and the creation of new things, but only from existing materials. God has also given humanity dominion and stewardship over his creation, which shows humanity's place as ruler and king, much like God. This is the meaning of God creating us "in his own image," not that God is like humans in having bodily parts and shape.

Taking Anthropomorphism literally, is a dangerous and pagan doctrine that we should avoid. In the book of Romans, explains what happened in human philosophy and religion.
  • Romans 1:21-23 “because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.”
       This concludes my section on the heretical doctrine of God was once like man.

Is there more than one true God?

So is there more than one true God?

The Bible teaches us that there is only one true and living God, and apart from him there is no other.
Let’s take a look at some verses.

God is ONE Lord.

  •  Deuteronomy 6:4 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord:”

No God formed before or after him.

  • Isaiah 43:10 “Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.

There is no Saviour beside him.

  • Isaiah 43:11 “I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour.”

I am the first, and I am the last.

  • Isaiah 44:6 “Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.

Is there a God beside me?

  • Isaiah 44:8 “Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? Ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? Yea, there is no God; I know not any.

Again, there is none beside me.

  • Isaiah 45:21 “Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? Who hath told it from that time? Have not I the Lord? And there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.”

And again, there is none else.

  • Isaiah 45:22 “Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.”

There is none like me.

  • Isaiah 46:9 “Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,”

Here Jesus quotes Deuteronomy 6:4

  •  Mark 12:29 “And Jesus answered him, the first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:”

A scribe responds to Jesus

  • Mark 12:32 “And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:”

Even the devils believe in one God.

  • James 2:19 “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.”

There is one mediator between God and men.

  • 1 Timothy 2:5 “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;”

God is one.

  • 1 Corinthians 8:6 “but to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.”

From the above verses, we can clearly see that the bible teaches that there is only ONE God. 

Anyone who comes before you preaching that there are many Gods is a false teacher, please be aware and look to the bible as your source of authority and truth.

This concludes my first blog, I want to keep it simple and should you have comments or like to discuss things please use the comments section. God Bless!
