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 in the world (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 the ESSENCE of  biblical  Christianity, which is BIBLE ONLY, apart from man's reasonings and innovations;  and  addresses  Redemption WayChurch TruthSpiritual Life;  and  Bible overview to maintain the balance in the faith.  It is what God has intended for  His collective testimony in this world.  We need "all the counsel of God" as God enjoins us,  and we need to encourage all souls to embrace all these things.

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.  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

Effects Of The Gospel

    Beside the ATHEISTS (meaning against deity) who strongly deny and oppose the existence of a Creator-God, and often go off in extreme to fight against the matter ---and are thus deceived by the whispers of Satan in their mind with his lies (as Holy Scipture shows), and the theories they choose to embrace; there are also AGNOSTICS (meaning not knowable) who are similar and turn from the Holy Bible (God's Word for eternal hope) to jusify their freedoms of thought and to enjoy the 'here and now'. This latter group refuse to search out beginnings as recorded in Holy Scripture, and just consider it as works of men only and not reliable (without even reading the "good news" message in the Gospel books of the Bible, such as the Book of John which makes it plain for honest seekers; and this latter non-believing people will thus talk only about good or poor religious ideas of mankind, and some philosophy for a bit of comfort in life with their fellow man.  Both of these "non-believers" have beliefs that are of similar mind, relying only on ideas they have developed (see the picture in Luke 8:4-18 as the Lord Jesus speaks in the Bible ---especially note verse 15, and one might apply this lesson). It all shows how Satan has blinded the mind of men who he has captive since the Fall of man in Genesis 1 & 2.
   Then we have religious BELIEVERS around us who allow there probably is a god or gods who started all things on earth, but do not see anyone but self as a Savior ---and a god or power only as being over all things that happen in the world; and thus He might just do what He wishes; thus claiming we should probably not think upon such a One in worship, else he might be angry and cause bad things to happen. The latter is getting close to truth, but missing the reality of the Savior-God as shown in His holy "Word of Truth" ---the "ever present" Creator (Psa. 46:1) and only Savior of mankind for eternity, who loves His creation and people He made for His desire to have children. We might consider that IF mankind should begin reading the four Gospel books in the Bible New Testament, they may be convicted by the Holy Spirit of our Creator, and begin to see the eternal truth for mankind which the Creator has preserved to give eternal life, hope, and blessings forever when we leave this world. That is real CHRISTIANITY, and opens the truth to know of God's " great salvation" in His "...beloved Son"; He who is the Lord Jesus, the "Christ of God" (read John 14 for a true picture).

  Some souls have a curiosity about deity as a concept, but only academic and begin to find ways to disprove Him as over us and like unto man as our Father, by claiming science shows things happened in the universe only by accident and explosions, and various matter there, and some accidental circumstances; and man thus came from little cells which just progressed from various growing forms, to eventually becoming larger forms, apes, and then humans. Where then did the cells and growing forms come from if not created, and how could all of what the Bible shows as God's magnificent and well integrated, beautiful, and organized world exist, and have any life to develop? How foolish to let imagination (truly from Satan--our adversary) rule us, and ignore the eternal message from our Creator. One should venture to read some of His Word to us from the beginning in Genesis 1 and 2, and note such as Exodus 3:13-15 and Isaiah 45:5-6 and 18-22; and then in Revelation 1:8 ---JEHOVAH (ever self-existing One). If anyone should want to be saved for eternity, it would be wise to prayerfully read the four Gospel books of the Holy Bible, and pray over such as John 14 there (KJV recom-mended). 

  The non-believers in God and the foolish doubters blindly follow Satan's lies (as God tells us in His Holy Word) and usually resort to saying science has not yet discovered how all the processes developed, but that they will in time. In other words, they believe the lie of Satan (God's adversary as the Bible shows and explains) and hold a determ-ination to deny the Creator at any cost ---even the cost of their eternal condemnation when they die, by the workings of our Holy and righteous Creator; that which pleases the Deceiver: Satan (1 Tim. 2:14; Rev. 12:9; Rev. 20:10). This is tuly something to ponder ---at least the reasonable souls would say so!
