William Lange Craig wrote, “Remember that our faith is not based on emotions, but on the truth, and, therefore, you must hold on to it.” What truth? Jesus said to the Father in prayer, “Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.” (John 17:17) By identifying the Scriptures some of which actually say, “You are my disciples if …,” we can know if we are truly Christian. A test that can actually tell us whether we are walking in the truth should never be based on emotionalism, but rather on Scripture. Do our words, our thoughts, our actions, our mind, our heart attitude harmonize with the Scriptures? Within this publication, we will be able to let the Word of God prove who we really are. Let us follow the Apostle Paul’s counsel, by testing ourselves to determine whether we are adhering to God's Word.

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.

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.
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?
