GOD'S LIFE INSTRUCTION MANUAL
THE TRUTH THAT DOES NOT COME FROM PULPITS TODAY
GOD’S LIFE INSTRUCTION MANUAL
I keep getting emails from folks and organizations I do not know. One of these is Patterns of Evidence. Info@patternsofevidence.com The stuff I have read from this outfit is totally useless to anyone. They write about everything that churches, or evangelicals, or fundamentalists, or geologists, or archaeologists have proclaimed and from what I have struggled through, they never mention or refer to God’s Word.
Hundreds of well-meaning folks from all corners of the denominational spectrum have started up ‘missions’ or ‘retreats,’ or ‘gatherings’ with all sorts of clever/fancy names and definitions over the past century. They all truly believe they have the wisdom or knowledge to ‘make disciples’ of anyone who attends their particular group. The problem is that a disciple is one who follows someone they respect thoroughly, admire, trust, and believe in, so all these groups do is indoctrinate the adherents with the doctrine of the founder of that group. So, they may well succeed to do what they have desired, but are these ‘disciples’ closer to, or have a meaningful relationship with God, post this ‘course’ or study, or whatever it may be called?
I attended several such groups as I searched for God’s true gospel message that would transform my life. Some of them were helpful in certain ways, but not a single one of them taught me to ‘follow Christ,’ which is what God tells us we must do to get to heaven. Jesus made it abundantly clear that we must deny our-self, take up our cross daily, and follow Him, in order to be ‘saved.’ When we study God’s life instruction manual seriously, we find that the primary theme from Genesis to Revelation is: obey God and live, or disobey God and die [go to hell]. Remember that Adam and Eve both ‘died’ when they ate the fruit from that tree. When God speaks of life and death, He speaks of being spiritually alive [in a meaningful relationship with Him], or dead in our sins [part of Satan’s kingdom, on our way to hell]. And, He also assures us that He CANNOT dwell with anyone who sins.
For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness; with you, evil people cannot dwell. Ps. 5:4.
So, all these ‘Christians’ of today who are absolutely certain that the Holy Spirit dwells in them are thoroughly deceived.
It took me several decades to find God’s truth, and not a single pastor, priest, minister, ‘Christian author’ or any other man or woman, whatever they chose to call themselves, helped me in that endeavour. I found God’s truth in His Word. Fancy that!! It’s all there in clear, logical, and reasonable English. [For all English-speaking folks]
Church leaders of today are wasting millions of dollars in their doubling down on the same gospel message that has been preached for 150 years. It is abundantly clear to them all that this gospel has not worked! The Barna Research Institute recently declared that Christianity has been rotting from the inside out. The census figures in America show that millions of pew-warmers have vacated their pews during the past decade. Society [which the true Church is supposed to influence in the right direction] has fallen into steep decline, becoming more wicked every year for decades now. Every preacher and pew-warmer unashamedly confesses to sin But, they proudly testify to knowing the joy of God’s salvation, and the victory that is theirs in Christ Jesus. That is profoundly dumb! In fact, it is insane! It is a contradiction of utmost insanity.
When I attempt to inform one of these ‘Christian leaders’ of this travesty they immediately get all bent out of shape and aggressively attack me [verbally]. No matter how many passages of scripture I share with them, they get madder and madder, and either walk out on me, or threaten me with things that they know will harm me cruelly if I ever mention such things again. One of my brothers did the former to me very recently. I thought he was going to hit me for a while, as he stood rock solidly in front of me with his face no more than twelve inches from mine, glaring at me with a look that displayed gross anger and threat. I was so shocked all I could think to say was, ‘what’s this?’ In hind-sight I should have added, ‘is this emotional reaction or spiritual response?’ He is a respected minister of God’s word, frequently teaching others ‘God’s truths.’ How such folks can do this repeatedly and never wake up to the fact that they are obviously operating in the flesh, rather than the Spirit, I simply cannot understand.
God has graciously given us a very good manual for life so we can enjoy the life that He created us to live. If you want to believe that it requires some ‘specialist’ to interpret that manual, then you are clearly taking a mighty dangerous risk. Anyone who believes that God exists, knows full well that He holds their eternal destiny in His hands. So, if He has given us an instruction manual, informing us of the way of salvation, one would think [if one was logical] that He has made that way clear enough for the slowest of us to understand. Well, I believe that anyway. And my decades of searching for that way resulted in such an unbelievably miraculous transformation of my life, that it was clearly just as He has promised us it would be. Beyond anything I could think or even imagine. God’s analogy of soaring on wings like eagles is a very adept description of what life is when one experiences it the way God purposed it. I spent too many decades floundering around on the ground, when I could have been soaring on the air currents far above the mud and clay of this planet, as beautiful as it is when seen through my new eyes.
I wrote a book on my return to New Zealand, after spending two decades in the USA My only reason for doing so was to show others what God is saying to us in His life manual. The life I enjoy now is what I desire for everybody, it is so amazing. It is available for everybody. It is described in God’s Word very clearly. It took me far too long to see it because I had spent decades being indoctrinated with today’s false gospel. I had to ‘unlearn’ all of that before God could open my eyes to His true gospel. I believed with all my heart that God wanted me to write that book because I could not possibly reach thousands [millions] of people vocally, with the truth. So, the book is available from Amazon or B & N in paper-back or kindle. It is NOT my opinions that I share with you, but God’s Word, which I have copied and pasted to many pages throughout the book. It’s entitled ‘A Nation Broken.’
By reading this book, you will learn what God has told us in regard to salvation and right living. I can guarantee, you will never hear that from the pulpit at your church. Salvation is NOT free. It is NOT something that is given to a certain list of elite sinners that God has inscribed on some scroll in heaven. It IS the greatest and most valuable commodity/attribute/benefit any human being could ever imagine. Due to the value of this salvation, it will cost you everything you have.
In the same way, those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples. Jesus… Lk. 14:33
Your preacher will never tell you that. It’s available to you.
