REASONING FROM THE SCRIPTURES: Sharing CHRIST as You Help Others to Learn about the Mighty Works of God

Christian Publishing House
Free sample

Use of  REASONING FROM THE SCRIPTURES  will help you to cultivate the ability to reason from the Scriptures and to use them effectively in assisting others to learn about "the mighty works of God." - Acts 2:11.

If Christians are going to be capable, powerful, efficient teachers of God's Word, we must not only pay attention to what we tell those who are interested but also how we tell them. Yes, we must focus our attention on the message of God's Word that we share but also the method in which we do so. Our message, the Gospel (ie, the good news of the Kingdom), this does not change, but we do adjust our methods. Why? We are seeking to reach as many receptive people as possible. "You will be my witnesses ... to the End of the Earth." - ACTS 1: 8.

 Evangelism is the work of a Christian evangelist, of which all true Christians are obligated to partake to some extent, which seeks to persuade other people to become Christian, especially by sharing the basics of the Gospel, but also the deeper message of biblical truths. Today the Gospel is almost an unknown, so what does the Christian evangelist do? Preevangelism is laying a foundation for those who have no knowledge of the Gospel, giving them background information, so that they are able to grasp what they are hearing. The Christian evangelist is preparing their mind and heart so that they will be receptive to the biblical truths. In many ways, this is known as apologetics.

Christian apologetics [Greek: apologia , “verbal defense, speech in defense”] is a field of Christian theology which endeavors to offer a reasonable and sensible basis for the Christian faith, defending the faith against objections. It is reasoning from the Scriptures, explaining and proving, as one instructs in sound doctrine, many times having to overturn false reasoning before he can plant the seeds of truth. It can also be earnestly contending for the faith and saving one from losing their faith, as they have begun to doubt. Moreover, it can involve rebuking those who contradict the truth. It is being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks the Christian evangelist for a reason for the hope that is in him or her. – Jude 1.3, 21-23; 1 Pet 3.15; Acts 17:2-3; Titus 1:9.

What do we mean by obligated and what we mean by evangelism are at the heart of the matter and are indeed related to each other.

EVANGELISM: An evangelist is a proclaimer of the gospel or good news, as well as all biblical truths. There are levels of evangelism, which is pictured in first-century Christianity. All Christians evangelized in the first century, but a select few fit the role of a full-time evangelist (Ephesians 4:8, 11-12), as was true of Philip and Timothy.

OBLIGATED: In the broadest sense of the term for evangelizer, all Christians are obligated to play some role as an evangelist.

 Edward D. Andrews boldly answers the challenges Bart D. Ehrman alleges against the fully inerrant, Spirit-inspired, authoritative Word of God. By glimpsing into the life of Bart D. Ehrman and following along his course of academic studies, Andrews helps the reader to understand the biases, assumptions, and shortcomings supporting Ehrman's arguments. Using sound reason, scholarly exegesis, and the Historical-Grammatical method of interpretation, as well as New Testament textual criticism, Andrews helps both churchgoer/Bible students, as well as scholars, overcome the teachings of biblical errancy that Ehrman propagates.—Easy to read and understand.

"A sometimes complex area has been made very palatable and enjoyable to read. Dare I say—even quite exciting!"—Online Reviewer.

"When it comes to defending the Bible from textual, scientific, and historical criticism, Edward D. Andrews has everything you need to any complaint or argument against the Bible's divine inspiration."—Logos Bible Software.

MISREPRESENTING JESUS Debunking Bart D. Ehrman's "Misquoting Jesus" is an attempt to look behind the scenes at Ehrman's book, and get a picture of his mindset as he penned it by the way he worded something, or repeatedly worded something, or left something out, and far more. This is not to say that I did not get into his arguments, and debunk them, for that was done as well. By the time you finish this book, you will find that Bart Ehrman in Misquoting Jesus is evangelizing for atheism, and using his misleading words to find new members, by way of doubt, contributing to the unwary Christian's spiritual shipwreck.

The intention of this book is to investigate the biblical chronology behind Jehovah's Witnesses most controversial doctrinal position that Jesus began to rule invisibly from heaven in October 1914. This biblical chronology of the Witnesses hinges upon their belief that the destruction of Jerusalem by the Babylonians, which they say occurred in 607 B.C.E. The Witnesses conclude that Chapter 4 of the book of Daniel prophesied a 2,520 year period that began in 607 B.C.E. and ended in 1914 C.E. They state, "Clearly, the 'seven times' and 'the appointed times of the nations' refer to the same time period." (Lu 21:24) It is their position that When the Babylonians conquered Jerusalem, the Davidic line of kings was interrupted, God's throne was "trampled on by the nations" until 1914, at which time Jesus began to rule invisibly from heaven.

In chapter 1  we will take their chronology from the back of their 1984 New World Translation Reference Bible. We will take the points one-by-one, seeing whether the Watchtower get things right, and where the interpretation breaks down. 

In chapter 2  we will take the time to talk about this craze of Christianity, which also has been overly focusing on such terms as the "end times" or "the last days." While none of us can know the precise time of Jesus' return, how should we view the time that is remaining?

In Chapter 3 we will give the reader a correct understanding of Bible prophecy. In Chapter 4 we will give the reader a correct understanding of the signs of the end of the age. In Chapter 5 we will give the reader a correct understanding of the rapture. In Chapter 6 we will give the reader a correct understanding of the great tribulation. In Chapter 7 we will give the reader a correct understanding of Armageddon. In Chapter 8 we will give the reader a correct understanding of the Resurrection. In Chapter 9 we will give the reader a correct understanding of the millennium. In Chapter 10 we will give the reader a correct understanding of the final judgment. In Chapter 11 we will give the reader a correct understanding of what will happen to the unevangelized. In Chapter 12 we will give the reader a correct understanding of what the book of life is, who have their name written in the book of life, and can their name be erased (removed) from the book of life.
