Ezekiel 33:10 tells us that at one point in her history, "Israel had become so offensive to God, that she wasn't sure what to do about it; just like those young men, their soul was seeking some serious repair and she knew it; she just wasn't sure how to do it. "Israel was so aware of how far she had strayed from God that a public saying had developed among them which some say was even chanted: "(Our) offenses and sins weigh us down, and we are wasting away because of them." Yet with all of this, Israel wasn't repentant of her disobedience to God.
This idea of Israel asking God how they should live has come to the forefront of American Christian Psychology; you have to realize you're sick and if you want to become spiritually and emotionally well, you must change your world view; that is you must repent.
In other words, you must change from living your way to living God's way.
In his book, "How shall we then live", author, Francis A. Schaeffer says the very same thing to America and Western civilization that Ezekiel said to Israel.
Schaeffer points out that America ia no longer obedient to God and as a result if she continues to do so, America will ultimately self destruct; bear in mind Schaeffer wrote this book in 1976.

My spirit is over whelmed with sadness as I see so many pastors and Bible teachers corrupting Biblical Truth, so let me untangle it for you.
I know this will upset many people but I must address this before I explode.
There are great depths to which I could go with this topic but let me simply deal with one point: Eternal Security, aka eternal salvation or "once save, always saved".
There is one verse of scripture which makes everything CLEAR on this subject: Ephesians 2:8-9 which states: 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.
But unfortunately that's not what most of our churches, preachers and teachers are teaching these days. Is it any wonder our people are confused?
I heard a televangelist preaching this past week on how to a "return to grace, if you have fallen from from grace?
My question is, "HOW can you fall from grace if you've been born again?" you've repented of your sin and invited JESUS to come into your heart. The answer is clear, you can't.
John reminds us, "Jesus gives us eternal life, and we shall never perish; no one can snatch us out of His hand." (John 10:28)
Probably the greatest verse of all most of us have learned from childhood is John 3:16,
"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that everyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."
Titus also tells us "2 the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time."
That's a pretty strong promise, ETERNALLY promised before the beginning of time.
Of course there are always the nay Sayers that want to bring up Galatians 5:4 which says

He said, “Go and tell this people (Isaiah 6:8-9).
Accepting God’s call is a hard life and a hard thing to do but if done it’s the greatest experience imaginable.
Charles Spurgeon, Dwight L. Moody, Billy Sunday and Billy Graham all knew and expressed strongly their calling by God to preach God's word. We need more pastors, preachers, ministers and missionaries to know the certainty of their call; even to the point of putting their lives and lively hood on the line for the cause of Christ.

I'm excited to say this is one of the best young preachers I've heard in some time and he just happens to be my youngest son.
Tim's message is simple but direct and demonstrates just how many preachers have taken the simplicity of scripture and turned it into complicated "gobbly gook" that becomes boring and void of the life application Jesus intended.
Tim and his wife Sara have been missionaries to Asia and Africa for the past seven years.

Needless to say, this is a new blog/website which will also be affiliated with a You Tube Channel and Podcast.
It is somewhat ironic, that as a Theologian/Pastor/Psychologist, I have never really attempted a true Theological On-line website with the exception of a few Church Websites I maintained as a pastor.
Unlike those sites, this will be more about enjoyment as well as information. One thing for certain, if you're looking for a traditional Bible Study, you won't find it here; although I do hope you experience some new biblical and theological truths along the way.
It is my intent to make this website and associated podcast different. Of course, "That's what they all say" but this site will be as much about trying to be historically and factually accurate as it is scripturally.
The goal is to make us think, search and ultimately learn great truths which are in many cases right before our eyes yet to much a degree deeply hidden due to tradition and personal or historical prejudice.
In the days ahead it is my personal desire that your belief will be strengthened, your faith enhanced and your mind absolutely dazzled by the knowledge you gain.
Ultimately, it is my goal that this website will help each of us "Untangle the Word of Truth".
