New or Non-Christians

 Chasing After The Wind?

Section 1
Life or Death... The Choice is Yours. The Bible very clearly tells us that we all have a choice to make in this life - the most important choice we will ever make. And, if the Bible is indeed the word of God, the consequences for the individual who chooses to ignore, or counter the evidence with clever arguments, will be fatal. In view of which, If Christianity even has a one in a hundred chance of being true, perhaps we should not be demanding greater evidence, but wake up to the fact that a far more sensible way to look at it is .... the more severe the consequences, the less we should take risks.

What is truly interesting is that most people seem to be prejudiced against the Bible, but well disposed towards other 'scriptures'. This is a rather illogical situation, because there is far more evidence in favor of the Bible being true, than there is for any of the other 'holy books'. This includes scientific, historical and archaeological corroboration and the many fulfilled prophecies.

Also, all too many people, picking out a random phrase or two, think 'love' was Jesus' core message. Unfortunately, they are terribly wrong... the Kingdom of God, a phrase used over 50 times in the four Gospels alone, was at the heart of Jesus' ministry. But here is the interesting part, the Bible's description of this kingdom of God, also called heaven matches the world most men and women would choose to live in, one of peace and safety, where there is no crime, hunger and disease, war and above all... no death. In other words, Christianity, which appears to be outdated, out of touch, and largely irrelevant to modern society, promises exactly the utopian world that mankind can only dream of. Now, you have to decide if you want to be there.

Jesus.. The Historical Christ—Fact or Fiction? Enlightened mystic, great moral teacher, deluded mad man or Son of God? He certainly broke all the rules of ‘How Not to Start an Ancient Religion’, so how did Christianity thrive and grow? Jesus Didn't Fulfill The Validating Prophecies. Comparing Jesus With Other Religious Leaders... Why Jesus Is Without Equal. Was the Resurrection fact or fiction?  What Was Jesus' Message?

 The Bible.. Since it does not glow in the dark, levitate or exhibit any other supernatural physical qualities, how can we know beyond a shadow of doubt that the Bible is and always was the only Word of God, above other sacred writings? What about Science & the Bible, The Apocrypha, The Gnostic Gospels?

Prophecy... The Test Of Prophecy can be applied to all ‘sacred writings’.... It is a simple matter to ascertain whether such prophecies have been fulfilled or not. Understanding Prophecy and Typology: The western ideas of prophecy involve prediction and fulfillment. The Hebrew idea of prophecy is a pattern that is repeated… sometimes over and over again. The Seven Feasts of Israel: The historic and prophetic significance of these feasts is one of the most fascinating Biblical studies, since they lay out God’s plan of salvation for mankind in chronological order

God.. Does He exist? Is The God of the Bible Really God? Has Anyone Ever Seen God? Is God Male or Female? The ‘Jealousy’ of God. Can God Change His Mind? Is God ‘Different’ in the Old & New Testaments? Are There Types of People God Hates? Should Christians Fear God? The Wrath of God. The Trinity... Although most people cannot wrap their heads around, much less explain, the concept of the trinity, the vast majority of Christians believe it to be an unassailable and inviolable doctrine that comes straight from the pages of Scripture itself. But is this true? and More

Section 3B
Questions Skeptics Ask.. Alleged Biblical Contradictions, Errors and Discrepancies, Did Christianity evolve from pagan religions? Noah’s Ark, Methuselah, The Flood and more .

peach  Section 4
The Heart Of The Matter... Repentance:
The Missing Message: What you believe about Biblical repentance is, quite literally, a matter of life or death. Sin: If pressed, the majority of people in the western world would place themselves in the 'not perfect' category, but a far cry from 'sinners', or really bad people. But How Does The Bible Define Sin? Salvation: A large percentage of the modern church will tell you that in order to receive salvation and life eternal, you merely have to "believe in Jesus Christ" or "receive Christ as your Savior". Unfortunately, although the words come from the Bible, by themselves these instructions are horribly abbreviated. They neither tell you what you are saved from, nor what you gain by being "saved". Nor do they accurately convey all that is involved in a person being saved... merely acknowledging Jesus as Savior is insufficient. Also... Is The Sinner’s Prayer Effective? Why Not To Ask Jesus Into Your Heart, The Myth We Are Saved By Faith Alone

Section 5
Other Beliefs
Other Religions
: A look at some of the world’s major religions. Pluralism: It is tragically true that few of those who believe 'all spiritual beliefs are valid paths to God" seem to have made an in depth study of various religions to see if their claims are based on fact, or fairy dust. World Views: A world view is a set of presuppositions (or assumptions) which we hold (consciously or subconsciously) about the basic makeup of our world. The Occult: Wicca, Satanism, Witchcraft, Goddess Worship, Psychics, Paganism, Visualization, Reiki, Kundalini, The Teachings of the Spirits, Astrology, Shamanism, Reincarnation, Halloween, Angels, Channeling, Yoga, Transcendental Meditation, What Eastern Gurus Say About Occult Practices  and more. Atheism: A rational system that accounts for all human experience without the need to appeal to God. Evolution: Many believe in evolution for the simple reason that they think science has proven it to be a ‘fact’ and, therefore, it must be accepted. New Age: The movement has gradually been gathering momentum over the face of this earth.. shepherded by humans outside the church who have no comprehension of the dark forces they deal with, and by an “evil and adulterous generation” inside the church who blithely ignore the warnings from the God they profess to serve.

Section 6

Section 7A
Defending The Faith..  Most Christians today seem to prefer experiencing Christianity to thinking about or explaining it, But Christianity thrives on intelligence, not ignorance.

It is totally pointless to embark on a investigation unless one is prepared to set aside one’s denominational presuppositions, experiences etc. and rely strictly on what the Word says. For the thousands who 'believe' one thing, there are thousands who deny it. SOMEONE is wrong. Unless we are willing to go back to square one and ask what the Bible really says, we are never going to affirm God’s truth on the matter. Gullibility is not synonymous with spirituality. The four most dangerous mistakes any Christian can make are (not necessarily in any particular order) 1) Believe that we, or our pastor/denomination/spiritual leader cannot be fooled, 2) Attribute every personal testimony and “sign” as being of or from God, 3) Take Bible verses out of context and 4) believe that we, as Christians, are not to judge anything or any one.

Section 7B
Sharing The Faith.. The Gospel is the greatest story ever told, about the greatest person who has ever lived, who is making to men and women the greatest offer that has ever been made.. So why is it often so difficult to tell others?

Section 8A
A Question Of Salvation.. Were we all born sinful with need of a Saviour? Does Christ’s sacrifice mean everyone is saved whether they repent and believe or not? Did God decide who would be saved or is it a matter of free choice? Are the Jews saved? Were our sins atoned for when Christ died on Calvary (the view held by the overwhelming majority of Christians) or does the Bible give us a completely different timeline?

Section 8B
Controversial Issues That Confront Believers Today.
 Law Or Grace.. The Old Covenant Or The New, Is Baptism Necessary For Salvation? Have The "Miraculous" Gifts Such As Tongues, Miracles, Word Of Knowledge, Healing And Prophecy Ceased? Judge Not?

Section 10A
The Contemporary Church, The Devil’s Playground... The problem with America's Christianity today is that, for the most part, it doesn't exist! What passes for Christianity at best is largely an anemic, spineless, diluted substitute without convictions or principles... diluting the Gospel, embracing worldly methods and becoming people pleasers. Not only does today’s fad driven church push trash and trivia, but the very church that should have been a bulwark against evil has, with apostate leaders and a Biblically illiterate population, latched on to the coat tails of the world, extensively borrowing from other religions and cults. Worse, we have adopted practices that are DIRECTLY derived from the occult. We are so busy congratulating ourselves on how “spiritual” we have become, that we little suspect that we have actually lost all rights to call ourselves “Christians”, or the body of Christ. Instead we have truly become The Devil’s Playground. May God, in His mercy send us a Nathan to accuse, a Jonah to warn, and an Elijah to threaten before it is too late. Includes the four most dangerous things any Christian can do.

Section 10D

Losing The Fight For Our Country...                          Losing The Fight For Our Children...

America.. The chilling thing about our behavior as a nation is that the Bible teaches that when a nation under judgment refuses to repent, it will ultimately reach a point where God will deliver it from judgment to wrath from discipline to doom.

Founding Fathers.. Were ‘most’ of them deists? Where did the expression Separation of Church & State originate and what exactly was meant by it? We now have Muslims, Atheists and Hindu Prayer In Congress... How receptive were the Founding Fathers to the influx of non-Christian religions into the country and the government. Ten Things Every Christian Should Know About the Founding of America.

 From Harry Potter and The Golden Compass to Veggie Tales, Santa Claus, Teen Mania, Dungeons and Dragons.... What Are We Doing To Protect Our Children? Are we, as parents, following the instructions of Deuteronomy 6:6,7? Is it time to exodus Public Schools? Our dangerous college campuses. Teen Mania’s success... a a movement of the Holy Spirit or well oiled corporate planning?

Losing The Fight For Our Church, Country and Children

  Losing The Fight For Our Churches


Section 10B
Ecumenism.. Christians seem to totally forget that they are followers of the man who called the Pharisees white-washed tombs and drove the money- changers out of the temple. We are students of the Apostle Paul, who called down God's curse on anyone who preached a different gospel.

Section 12B

Section 12
New Age/New Thought..  If it is not bad enough that New Age thinking is showing up in art, music, business, education, environmental concerns, health programs etc. it is also showing up in the church. This modern revival of ancient religious traditions, along with a potpourri of influences including Eastern mysticism is being spread by people like Oprah Winfrey, plus a host of others who blindly swallow anything and everything told them by nefarious invisible hosts with no credentials and no evidence that they are who they say they are. And they call Christians stupid and gullible? Seems to me the boot is on the other foot. But this movement, fueled by unholy forces that oppose both God and man, is the single largest danger to the professing church, poised as it is to usher in the antichrist.

Section 11
Cults.. Not necessarily satanic or weird, but dangerous all the same. Catholicism, Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Unity School of Christianity, Scientology, New Thought, Urantia and More.

Section 12C
 Secular & ‘Christian’ Rock Music
Today, at almost any "heavy-metal'' rock concert violence, sex, suicide, rebellion, and drugs are not only promoted, but acted out on stage. Rock music has evolved into Satan’s single most powerful tool against our youth. Worse.. ‘Christian’ Rock has linked worship to the demonic, sexual, rebellious style of rock and roll, destroying any remaining fragments of Biblical walls of Christian separation.

Section 13B
Social.. Premarital Sex, Abortion, Marriage, Divorce and Remarriage,  Birth Control, The Pill, Homosexuality, Pornography, Stem Cell Research, Euthanasia, Suicide, Cloning, Transexuality, Capital Punishment and more..
