Out of Context: Without Holiness, No Man Shall See the Lord (Long Read)

Admittedly, this is going to be focused on my Pentecostal background and how Holiness in Hebrews 12:14 was twisted to equal a dress standard. Holiness is a word and concept found many times in Scripture, which signifies how important it is to God. Yet, so many have taken a word, plopped it […]

Video Version: Is Tithing required in the New Testament?

In our video series, we talk briefly about how the New Testament does not command us to give Tithes to the priesthood as was required in the Old Testament taxation on the people of Israel. This video is NOT to prove we shouldn’t give because we should, but it is […]

Dreams From God

Coming from a Pentecostal background, and using Joel 2:28 and Acts 2:17 (and Isaiah 28:11) endlessly as proof that Speaking in Tongues was required for salvation, I always wondered why we summarily ignored the rest of the verse. Men and women prophesying, old mean dreaming dreams, and young men seeing […]

Happy is he that condemneth not himself

One of the most persistent struggles an ex-legalist will have, especially in the early days of leaving the unhealthy church structure, is continuously feeling condemned. This is the way unhealthy church structures ensure conformity, by brainwashing congregants into believing that God will immediately damn them for stepping out of that man-made […]

If you have ever felt that your value to the church, and then intrinsically, to God was based on how well you performed in the church, or how you were rated by the Pastor, then this video and article is for you. Churches and leaders who create systems of conformity, […]

What is a Ministers Example?

As a follow-up to yesterdays post, Should Shepherds have Sheep Servants, I thought I would share a Scripture that makes the position of a minister crystal clear, and yet so obviously not followed. And this might be my shortest post, ever! What is most astonishing is that the word minister itself […]

Should Shephards have Sheep Servants?

Too often the children of God, the Saints of His Church are referred to as Sheep (by Pastors) as if they [the Saints] were mindless, dumb, filthy and wayward creatures without the ability to care for themselves. Dumb, Directionless, and Defenseless. And to give credit where credit is due, this […]

This is our video production of our Out of Context article on Malachi 3:8, Will a Man Rob God on our YouTube channel. You can read the original Bible study here; Out of Context: Malachi 3:8 This post is just to announce the video version and you can view it […]

The Life is in the Blood – so stay Healthy!

In the book of Leviticus, in giving the commandment to His people not to consume the blood of animals, He [the Lord] gives a revelation that would take many long years for mankind to really understand; “For the life of the flesh is in the blood:”. The blood,  now spiritually […]
