What you believe, is limited by what you know.
The Truth cannot share it's place

The Purpose of This Site
"For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins." 2 Peter 1:5-9
Many years ago I set out on a mission to find holes in the Bible and other various so called "Religions". I was on a mission for the truth and I didn't care what I was going to find. However, when it came to examining the Bible, I began to find way more proof for it, than I found against it. I also found that the other major religion's books were altered copies from the Bible, but with the importance of Jesus removed. Much of what is on this site, is what I found when I did that research. This site provides all kinds of verifiable evidence that anyone can check for themselves. Many people have spent a lifetime researching these individual topics, and because of that many call Jesus, God.
I have always felt that if people just knew about all the amazing information out there, they would believe Jesus is God, come as a man to make a better covenant for us, just as the old covenant says he would. However, once you do find belief in the Bible, trying to hand this knowledge to someone has a bad habit of being received as biased. I have been called brainwashed, even though I started out by trying to prove it all wrong on my own. I have always been willing to read and consider new information, but those that aren't, are quick to close up, and write you off. It would seem that what stops most people from learning anything new, is that they're "too busy", or they're proud and think they know enough already to leave it alone. It is certainly worth dropping those barriers to see if there is any credible proof that the Bible is true. Especially, on account of what it says. We had all better find out if it really is the word of God, and acknowledge him and what he has done.
Knowledge can save your life according to the Bible, it can also save your afterlife the moment you believe Jesus is the son of God, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. If you keep digging you will find God is completely real, and that the Bible really was more than just some people making a book. It could have only been inspired by the one and only creator of the universe, who is outside of time. Read his word, (especially starting with the new covenant/testament, which applies to us now) and you will learn he really is love itself. In learning that, you begin to find reason after reason to love him back. As your faith grows, you want to obey him and listen to what he says, because it's all real and really does love you. There is indeed a purpose to this life after all.
If you think you're an accident evolved from an explosion from nothing, or you think you can worry about where you're going once you're dead, if you think you're prepared to sufficiently answer the gatekeeper as you pass into the next realm, you aren't alone. It's easy to follow the society in place, go with the flow and do nothing. However, if you suspect there is a designer and a reason we are all here, all you have to do is seek the truth. The truth has an amazing ability of leaving evidence to examine.
We are born into a world with the ability to make decisions between right and wrong. As soon as freewill began, the spectrum of choice existed. Real love cannot exist without a choice, but with a choice, comes the ability to make bad ones. This world is not only a realm for us to live, love, build character, and make the most important decision of our life, by finding belief in God's One and only Son, but it will serve as an eternal example of what happens when you allow just a little sin in. It sends out corruption like a cancer that only gets worse over time.
It is my hope to bring people to the truth of Jesus, because in the end, the truth is all that matters, and the truth is our only reality. If you honestly seek the truth, you will find it, and if you choose him, you will be in his love for all of eternity.
Major Biblical Doctrines:
The doctrines of the Bible are interwoven, and they have been designed in such a way, that if our understanding is off-point, then it won’t mesh with the other doctrines. As a result of this intermeshing structure, they will all become contradictory to one another, if one’s understanding is not correct on any one doctrine, and this will cause a doctrinal conflict. Praise God he designed it in this brilliant structure. Because of that, we can cross check our understanding of what has been written.

1 Corinthians 1:10-13
I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought. My brothers, some from Chloe’s household have informed me that there are quarrels among you. What I mean is this: Individuals among you are saying, “I follow Paul,” “I follow Apollos,” “I follow Cephas,”a or “I follow Christ.” Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptized into the name of Paul?
1 Corinthians 3:11
For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.
Saved through faith alone in Jesus.
See the Salvation page for a thorough exegesis.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.
that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Once saved, always saved.
In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.
This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”
Pre-millennial, and The Church did not replace Israel.
God's promise was forever to Abraham (Genesis 12:1–3 and 15:9-17), repeated to Isaac (Genesis 21:12; 26:3–4), and Jacob (Genesis 28:14–15), affirmed to Moses (Exodus 3:15), and also confirmed by Jesus (Matthew 22:31–32) and Peter (Acts 3:13,25). This promise was forever, as stated again by God in 2 Samuel 7:10–17 to King David about the House of the lord to be temporarily built by Solomon, and made forever by the "Son of David", Jesus. (Matthew 1:1)
