The Resurrection

The Resurrection - Rapture (Mar 31, 2011)

Many teachings on this subject today are not the position the church held and taught throughout history. I take a look at how the church originally interpreted the scriptures being cited today on this subject, and how the popular modern teaching is based only on assumption. As far as date setting goes, 100% of the date setters in history have been 100% wrong, 100% of the time. Hopefully this book will also help refute the idea that a person can set a date for the coming of the Lord and our gathering together to him.

CSI Jerusalem (Feb 23, 2012)

I have taken the high standards of today's forensic science and have applied them to the story of the ages. I investigate the death of Jesus of Nazareth, his empty tomb, and his missing body. My investigation team and I examine motive, opportunity, eyewitness accounts, physical evidence, and behavioral analysis. There is more than enough evidence to prove the resurrection of Jesus is a historical fact. It's a matter of, "Do you want to believe it or not?" I also address the question, "So what if he did rise from the dead?"

Eternal Life

Eternal Life (May 1, 2013)

This project was undertaken so that a person who reads it can know if they have eternal life. It is a simple explanation of how we pass from death to life and what we must do to experience it. I answer questions like: If eternal life is free why aren't people signing up by the millions to receive it? Also, what is God's motive in His dealings with me, why was I created, and what is the purpose of my life?

The Witnesses

The Witnesses (July 16, 2013)

This investigation looks at the documents written by people who claimed to be eyewitnesses of the life of Jesus of Nazareth. Are the alleged witnesses credible and their claims valid? Is their information accurate? Can the documents be dated correctly? Should they be evaluated like any other historical document? I answer these questions as I examine the eyewitnesses through behavioral analysis, and their claims using jury instructions handed down in the U.S. by the judicial system. Is the New Testament historical documentation by eyewitnesses? If it is, so what? What are the implications if that is the case?

The Resurrection of the Just

The Resurrection of the Just (June 6, 2014)

The resurrection of the dead is a fundamental doctrine of Christianity and is the blessed hope of the believer. Who will be raised, how they will be raised, and when they will be raised has always been discussed at length and in great detail throughout history. To quote St. Augustine, “On no point does the Christian faith encounter more opposition than on the resurrection of the body.” Because the first teachers of apostolic doctrine felt it urgently necessary to defend and clarify this doctrine, and because there is so much historical evidence available as commentary, I feel that the Apostolic and Ante-Nicene fathers are an invaluable resource that should be taken advantage of. An effort to correctly understand the doctrine of the resurrection of the just and how it relates to the advent of Antichrist and Jesus Christ will greatly benefit from the examination of these historical documents. How did the first disciples of the apostles understand what Jesus said and how did they understand the writings of their contemporaries which have become our scriptures?

Beware of False Prophets

Beware of False Prophets (July 4, 2014)

An examination of the errant prophetic record, the misrepresentation of historical Church writings, and the misquoting of Biblical Greek scholars carried out by the governing body of the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, is an absolute must if a person is considering becoming a member or leaving this organization. Jesus warned people to beware of false prophets. He said they will look genuine but are masters of disguise. Is the Watchtower society one of the false prophets that Jesus warned about? I examine the prophetic, historical, and scholastic record of the Watchtower society along with the biblical and historical definition about the nature of God, the person of Jesus and the true Gospel. Where does the Watchtower's doctrine appear in history? This book examines all of these things and more. My 35 years of research are compiled in an easy to understand yet detailed single volume book.

Daniel's Messiah: The 490 years of Daniel chapter Nine

Daniel's Messiah (April 9, 2015)

Who was the biblical Daniel? Who wrote the book bearing his name? And what is the meaning of Daniel 9:25, “From the issuing of the decree to rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah there will be 483 years"? In Daniel’s Messiah I examine what the Rabbis had to say about this passage. I also examine Daniel and his Messiah in their historical context. What do the Rabbis say Messiah will look like when He comes, and why do they reject Jesus as Messiah? Who was Porphyry, and how is he relevant to the discussion? The answers to these questions and others contained in this book should leave the reader with the capability to clearly identify Daniel's Messiah.

Mohammed vs the Eyewitnesses

Mohammed vs the Eyewitnesses (September 14, 2015)

Surah 5:44-48 of the Quran tells us that the Quran confirms the scriptures which came before it in the form of the Torah-Tanakh, and the Gospel-New Testament. The Quran claims there is no difference between any of the writings because they are all said to contain the same guidance, light and truth. The Quran instructs us to judge from them and between them. Mohammed vs. The Eyewitnesses attempts to do just that; conduct an examination of the New Testament and the Quran and judge the results. One question that will be answered during this examination is, "Have the New Testament documents been corrupted by malicious heretics?" A comparison of the two is an absolute necessity if the contents of either one is to be taken seriously or viewed as authoritative.

Apostolic Faith

Apostolic Faith (November 26, 2015)

Who is Jesus of Nazareth, the person that taught the Apostles? What is baptism and why did He command us to be baptized? How did the Apostles administer that baptism and how does it relate to the salvation of those who place their trust in Him? Patristic literature holds the key to correctly understand scripture the way in which the writers intended. Therefore, "Apostolic Faith" addresses these questions in light of the interpretation of scripture held by the earliest disciples of the Apostles. This method will greatly assist in correctly understanding what Jesus meant when He said, "I and my Father are one" and what Peter meant when he said, "Be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins."

Baptism: of Water and the Holy Spirit

Baptism: of Water and the Holy Spirit
(February 14, 2017)

As is implied by the title, this book is built upon the premise of John 3:5 which states, "Unless a person is born of water and the Holy Spirit they cannot enter the kingdom of God." This body of work examines the sacrament of water baptism, and the baptism of the Holy Spirit in their historical setting. More importantly, this work answers the question, "Are sins taken away by water or spiritual baptism?" Many citations from the New Testament claim that it is the blood of Jesus that cleanses one who believes from their sins, but how is that reality received? These questions and more are answered while an examination of historical issues are covered such as; The re-baptism of heretics joining the church, and the practices of catechumen and the baptism of infants. Proof texts that are used to support the idea of baptismal salvation are reviewed as well as passages of scripture which claim that people who call upon the Lord shall be saved.

Who is the Unknown God?

Who is the Unknown God? (August 4, 2017)

Ancient Greece was home for many mythological gods who were given life via superstition and imagination. Powers and attributes of nature were deified and given names, and great altars and temples were erected in their honor. Modern archaeologists have even discovered altars dedicated "To the Unknown God" throughout the region. To these people God was mostly unknown but his existence was evident. People today aren't any different. Many agree that God exists but yet He remains a mystery to them. This publication is meant to assist those who are involved in 12 step programs and find themselves stuck in this predicament. It will remove the "Un" from the unknown god.

Burden of Proof

Burden of Proof (March 27, 2018)

Did Jesus of Nazareth die by Roman crucifixion, during the reign of Tiberius Caesar, at the hands of Pontius Pilate? Christianity’s New Testament says yes. Islam’s Quran says no. How would we prove which of these claims is true in a court of law, "beyond reasonable doubt?" By using the method used in trial court law of forcing the one making the claim to prove it. Therefore, historical evidence is examined in an effort to answer the crucifixion question. What does history reveal and what claims can it prove or refute? Even though the New Testament and the Quran are historical documents one can’t rest solely on their claims. Archaeology and other historical records must corroborate the claims otherwise the claims are philosophical conjecture and un-provable.


The Gospel of Jesus Christ

The Gospel of Jesus Christ (January 7, 2019)

"Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved." But how then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how can they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how will they hear unless someone tells them? Romans 10:13,14They can’t believe in Jesus if they’ve never heard the message, someone has to tell them. And that someone can only be us; his disciples who are familiar with the message. No one is going to understand about the seriousness of sin and its consequences by us putting on a smile and being nice. People have to be told about Jesus. It is our hope that this book will equip, inspire, and give confidence to those who are reluctant to tell others about Jesus and what the Gospel means to them. It is also our hope that it will augment and assist the testimony of those who already act upon opportunities to share the Gospel.

The Puzzle

The Puzzle (March 14, 2020)

The Puzzle is a research project that resulted from a dialogue between street evangelists and the author on the subject of Roman Catholicism. The questions that arose are as follows: “Is the Roman Catholic Church an apostate, pseudo-Christian church or is it an inseparable part of historical orthodox Christianity? Can a person find salvation by following the Roman Catholic teaching on the subject? Are Roman Catholics members of the body of Christ?” In order to answer these questions a critical examination was undertaken to evaluate the Vatican’s claim to primacy over Christendom? Is their claim that there is no salvation outside of the Roman Catholic Church correct? The same critique was applied to the teaching of the church on the subject of salvation and the sacraments of baptism, penance, and the Eucharist. This was necessary because of the fact that there are details within these teachings that are unique to catholicism and are not found in Christian Orthodoxy. The question must then be asked, “Did the church of the West add these differences or did the church of the East eliminate them from their teaching?” Our challenge is to correctly put together the pieces of this puzzle.

Fear Not

Fear Not (May 27, 2020)

Fear not is a command stated 366 times in the Bible. The command is the basis for this book as it addresses the reasons so many people experience fear. We examine the emotion of chronic fear taking hold of us when situations are out of our control. What lies in the future, in the great unknown, spawns much of ourunhealthy thoughts and fear based behavior. Fear of our mortality and the "end of the world" are topics that are discussed as well. The book concludes with suggested methods of cognitive reorientation therapy for a positive reconstruction of thought against chronic fear, depression, anxiety and worry. We are reminded that most often the negative physical and emotional side effects of chronic worrying are worse than the actual things we imagine are going to harm us.

The Sword of the Spirit

The Sword of the Spirit (November 24, 2020)

Everything that a Christian believes originates from the Bible. It is the basis for all orthodox doctrine. Therefore, it is recommended that if a person professes faith in Jesus Christ, they should also be sure to have an in depth understanding of what the Bible says. How is it possible for a person to follow the teachings of Jesus if they don’t know what those teachings are? Also, if a skeptic doesn’t know the contents of the Bible how can they honestly say they don’t believe it? Once a person has an accurate understanding of what the Bible says, they can accept it or reject it, not out of bias, prejudice, or based on hearsay, but rather based on information and facts. For this reason, these questions will be addressed: "What does the Bible say and why should we believe it? Is it reliable and accurate or is it riddled with errors and contradictions as sceptics contend?

Evidence Of An Architect

Evidence Of An Architect (June 16, 2022)

What do cosmology, geology, human biology, physiology, and cognitive science, tell us about life? Do they reveal that everything in existence is the result of a continual roll of the dice, a flip of the coin, or the luck of the draw, or do they show that deliberate action is responsible for everything. Does the data from mathematical models suggest that random chance mutations are the cause of life or that "In the beginning God created" is the more probable explanation? Is the complexity in all we observe compelling evidence of design or random chance? And where did the information to build everything come from? If by chance, is there any purpose for our existence? If by design then who is the architect?

Jesus of Nazareth

Jesus of Nazareth: "But who do you say that I am?" (July 18, 2023)

What a person believes about Jesus of Nazareth; Who He is and what He taught, is vitally important because it not only affects the reception of eternal life, but it determines how the Christian's life should be lived and their faith should be shared. This book examines the claims of scholastic critics, atheists, agnostics, skeptics, and the beliefs of pseudo-Christian religions relative to the question of who Jesus is, and who He claimed to be, and compares their claims with historical Christian Orthodoxy. The book also addresses the question of why one should believe the words of Jesus, recorded in the Gospel accounts in the first place. The critics claim that the New Testament record is unreliable, and that Jesus didn't say the things attributed to Him. Therefore, the goal of this book is to equip Christians to refute these claims with a clear presentation of the truth, and to show who Jesus of Nazareth really is
