CRISIS OF FAITH: Saving Those Who Doubt

Christian Publishing House
Free sample

 Inside of some Christians unbeknownst to their family, friends or congregation, they are screaming, "I doubt, I doubt, I have very grave doubts!" OURS is an age of doubt. Skepticism has become fashionable. We are urged to question everything: especially the existence of God and the truthfulness of his Word, the Bible. A half brother of Jesus warned us against doubting: "the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind." (Jam. 1:6) When insidious doubts begin to creep into the mind and the heart, it is only a matter of time before a CRISIS OF FAITH gives way spiritual shipwreck. Since we have been warned that “some will fall away from the faith,” we should be ready “to save some," even ourselves. 

In CRISIS OF FAITH, Edward D. Andrews guides us in one can be restored to the faith through an accurate knowledge that gives the facts on which to rebuild one's faith. Confidence can be restored in this world beset by doubts. We can help ourselves or others once again to make the Word of God their own. CRISIS IN FAITH assures us that the Bible truly is from God. Those who have doubts need to have their questions answered, and this book will fill the need for honest-hearted persons who sincerely want to know.

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.

This is a comprehensive study of euthanasia and assisted suicide. It traces the historical debate, examines the legal status of such activity in different countries and explores the political, medical and moral matters surrounding these emotive and controversial subjects in various cultural contexts. The key advocates and pioneers of this agenda-driven movement (such as the late Jack Kevorkian, popularly known as “Dr. Death” and Philip Nitschke, founder of Exit International) are profiled. Not only are the elderly and disabled becoming increasingly vulnerable but children, psychiatric patients, the depressed and those who are simply tired of life are now on a slippery slope into a dystopian nightmare. The spotlight is brought to bear on the Netherlands, in particular, where palliative care and the hospice movement are greatly underdeveloped as a result of legalization. These dubious “services” are now offered as part of “normal” medical care in Holland where it is deemed more cost-effective to be given a lethal injection.


The vital role of physicians as healers in society must be preserved and the important but neglected spiritual dimension of death must be explored. Thus a biblical view of human life is presented. Death and bereavement are universal phenomena and people of all faiths and those of none have a legitimate right to comment. However, the historic Christian tradition is struggling to be heard in the clamor for personal autonomy and civil liberties in a multi-cultural society that is becoming increasingly secular. This work provides an ethical framework in which euthanasia and assisted suicide can be evaluated. These issues are on the radar indicating a collision course with Christian values. It is time for Christians to be alert and to present the case that these are not satisfactory solutions to legitimate end-of-life concerns. 

 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.
