Jehovah's Witnesses Faulty Blood Policy

     The Jehovah's Witnesses misreading of Acts Chapter 15 has caused the death of many within the organization. It is my hope and prayer that this video will offer an alternative understanding to those Jehovah's Witnesses who are willing to take a second look at the passage, applying a more consistent and complete method of interpretation. The video was prompted by a letter that I received some time ago that I speak about in the video.

"He made Him who knew no sin to become sin for us" ( 2 Cor 5:21 )

I am absolutely certain that it's impossible for sinful men to understand the awesome sacrifice, limitless grace and incomprehensible love and humility it took to make these 12 spectacularly  beautiful words a reality - but it will be a source of eternal joy for me to forever try.

He Cares

Whoever you are...
Whatever you've done or become...
Whenever it happened...
No matter why you ended up where you are...
Or how much you need and how little you have...
I can assure you that whatever circumstances you find yourself in that God has done far more with far less.
"Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."
 (1 Peter 5:7)

The "Word" of God is...

Jesus Christ-the perfect Word of God -fully human yet fully Divine.
The Bible-the perfect Word of God-although authored fully by humans remains fully Divine in origin. 

In The Beginning...

     I have been scanning through some of the ancient Near Eastern creation accounts as part of my Old Testament survey.  While there are some interesting similarities there are definitely three major differences between the biblical creation account and all other creation stories that I have seen thus far.

1: The creation narrative in the bible is the only one that is monotheistic.  

2: Without exception, in all of the other creation stories the gods created out of existing materials as opposed to the biblical version which claims that God spoke things into existence and created out of nothing.  For instance in one called “The Enuma Elish” a smaller deity named Marduk kills the monstrous goddess Tiamat and uses her now divided corpse as the raw materials to create the heavens and the earth. 

3:  The third difference would be the purpose of creation.  God’s intent for His creation was tender and loving. The God of the bible personally cared for provided for His creation as they delighted in Him and enjoyed close fellowship with Him. (until the fall of course) However in the other creation accounts people were created  to be essentially slave labor for the gods.  As “The Enuma Elish” put’s it:  “I will establish a savage, ‘man’ shall be his name… he shall be charged with the service of the gods that they might be at ease.”

It would seem the reason for gods creating mankind in many of these stories is for no other reason then the fact that the gods were lazy and wanted to get out of work.

What is the Bible?

I was asked to write a paragraph based on this question: What is the Bible?  This came out instead.

The Bible is
The unparalleled 
The infallible
The unfailing
and eternal word of God

The Bible is a lamp for my feet
A guide to my path
A sure anchor for my soul
A comfort in times of trouble
and a rebuke in times of selfishness

Through the Bible God
Speaks to me
Teaches me
Tells me he loves me
and shows me what love really is

In the Bible I see
My sinfulness
And His holiness
My shame
and His Glory

But the Bible tells me that
Despite my unworthiness
Christ died for me
Christ was raised for me
and Christ will come again for me

God used the Bible to
To convict me 
To humble me
To bring me low
So that He may raise me up

Now I use the Bible
To feed on
To gain strength from
Until I am called to be with Him
Or He returns to be with us
