WELCOME HERE FRIENDS!   It is hoped you will find this site to be very helpful.  All questions and comments are welcome and held confidential (e-mail:    This web site is non-sectarian ministry to encourage the reading of God's Word, and for serious seeking after truth.  It values God's work of revival in the early 1800's, with which it is associated, and urges readers to learn about it (see Church Truth page and Feature pages above). It is always the desire and hope here to obey and honor our Lord, and encourage and seek the spiritual welfare of all people.  WE NEED TO SERVE AS "ONE BODY" IN  CHRIST (note 1 Cor. 12:25)!  No thought here is to condemn personal faith, for each one must look to God in their personal life, but  this speaks to spiritual life and the holy gospel truth by Bible-only;   and what God has intended for His collective testimony in this world.  We need "all the counsel of God". 

Everyone may participate in the ministry of this web site, by telling their friends to visit here. We hope all will find some ministry to help, and perhaps a nice challenge for their faith. Surely "the time is short", as God says, and surely we need to also "be about (our) Father's business".  See the message and testimony at Site Manager Page.  The writer does not have all answers, but will be glad to share what has been learned over many years.  Questions and contrary views in a helpful way are appreciated.

Papers and comments here are changed periodically, and are personal convictions.  Serious seekers after church testimony might well see Christian Assembly pages: F4 & F5.    There are many pages for help and encouragement --- SEE INDEX ABOVE FOR A BIBLE STUDY --F8.   The manager may not have answers for all questions, but is glad to share what he has and be of some help. He is not perfect and revisions and updates seem needed at times to clarify thoughts, so one might note the revision date on any papers they wish to copy (set your print margins at .25). Any copies made should not be altered or taken out of context.

A true and faithful believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, will walk with Him and talk with Him daily, until that day when one can see Him and be with Him forever in the Father's house in Heaven.  - RLD, 12/09

Some Thoughts And Comments, And Notes From C. I. Scofield

    A Bible seeker inquired about the differences in the four Gospel books recently, and this is an important subject to study. The Gospels do all speak of the "Good News" found in Jesus, the Christ of God; however, each of the Gospels has presented the Lord in different light.  As C. I. Scofield stated in his Bible introductions: "The Gospels are not a biography of Jesus, for not all things are revealed in each"; though we do see the basic and fundamental truths are presented in each to give a comprehensive picture:

1) We learn from Matthew of the legitimacy of Jesus by lineage as the prophetic SON OF DAVID as well as Son of God, etc.; and rightful heir, and the prophetic Redeemer and the Messiah of Israel;  also, we see the Kingdom of Heaven 
introduced ---which is both rule of the Heavens and profession of Christ as hope for the world, which the world mostly rejects; 

2) In Mark, Luke, and John we learn more of the Kingdom of God which speaks of the faithful believer's new life in the Christ through His sacrifice on the Cross. It has been described as a circle within a circle; that is, the Kingdom of God as the inner sanctum within the Kingdom of Heaven ---also as possession (new birth) within profession (acknowledgment and allowance);

3) Mark presents Jesus more as the SERVANT OF GOD ---His Godly works, etc. 

4) Luke emphasizes Jesus as the SON OF MAN ---the holy God-man, etc. 

5) John speaks mostly of Jesus as the SON OF GOD ---God come down, showing deity in the Christ ---noting especially John 14. 

    The good Gospel message is found in all the four Books, but these emphases give us a more full picture to more appreciate the life and ministry of the Lord  Jesus.  This is an interesting study if one seeks to pursue it from Holy Scripture and Bible scholars.   - RLD: GB43; 03/16:  ---see Scofield Study Bible (KJV) at Bible Truth Publishers, Addison, IL
