As DivideTheWord.blog grows, we wanted to update our Purpose/Mission statement to include our beginnings and the reason we do what we do. DivideTheWord.blog is about to launch a companion YouTube channel for videos of our topics and we hope you’ll join us there too!
As always, we are humbled by your support, your comments, and feedback, and hope you’ll stick with us as we go forth fulfilling God’s purpose – spreading His Gospel with Unconditional Love, the way He meant it to be.

I love what you put in your purpose, “mission” statement. It is the motive of most who are called into an area of ministry (service) like this to want to be a light, to shine truth in areas that the enemy wants to remain in darkness and the greatest darkness comes from lack of Scriptural knowledge.
I don’t mean, having to have a scholarly or formal education, but rather too many today are relying on what a “charismatic” personality tells them rather than as the Bereans, study and search the scriptures daily to prove to themselves the truths of the teachings!!
The Word of God is most times simple to understand; yes it has depth and scope and many, many treasures underneath its surface if we are willing to “excavate” but still in what we are meant to do in life can be summed up in what I call the “Reader’s Digest Version” of the Bible (meaning NO respect whatsoever), and you hit on it yourself, Matthew 22:36-40, “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?”
Jesus said to him,” ‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ “This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ “On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
The Bible can be summed up simply in those two commandments, but there is so much treasure in the rest of it, IF it is not twisted, warped, made to say what is false. Even as in the days of the inspired writers, we are even today with so much “advancement” seeing false teachers and prophets trying to bend, twist and pervert the Word of God!
So, I commend you on your mission of service and I will be adding you to my prayer list! I look forward to reading more from you and checking out your videos as time permits! In the meantime, God bless you richly and abundantly as you continue in your service (ministry) to us and to the Lord!

Hello Roland and thank you for the kind words. I agree that the simplicity of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is being robbed by men who wish to make it something it is not. Looking forward to hearing from you again!
