Hi Guys and Gals, Friends and Readers,
Here [again] is the 'Mission Statement' of the new, exciting, more organized, IMHO, FB site being developed by some good friends of mine which, in my humble opinion, is much more than another 'social club' -- but they want to be more distinct and pointed with their research and study of the Scriptures with the Bible only as their main guide to define the truth. I believe that this new approach will set matters and opinions on the right path [See: 2nd Timothy 3:16] while also ferreting out misconceptions, lies, unprofitable customs, traditions and unhealthful 'doctrines of demons'--see: 1st Timothy 4:1-3.
On another tack, I am cautiously driving my truck around doing chores, paying bills, picking up some food, etc. I can't say enough good, positive things about my '07 Ram 4 by 4 truck- Big Horn, and how it offers enough 'armor' to survive an accident/ mishap, even if the driver's side air bag DIDN'T deploy! I will always try to buy American if I possibly can, as they are made for the larger European-American man who needs his comfort and leg/ head room! Saving a life is one thing-- but I know personally that with many injuries-- the doctors can only do so much to heal, fix, repair the human body-- and then we just have to continue to LIVE with the disabilities the rest of our earthly life...IF YOU DON'T PICK UP AN HOSPITAL BORNE INFECTION while you are there...
Really, friends, I don't ever want to have another accident, but this liberal system in America allows and even promotes many people to drive without a license, without insurance, with many DUI's and drug offenses, to the harm of other innocents on the road!!! I carry full coverage auto insurance on all my vehicles and pay plenty! I would just like to see a 'level playing field' instead of ILLEGAL ALIENS always getting a special break or free pass. The Law never gave me a break either... and the Law SHOULD be Blind and impartial !
But deep inside, I KNOW that things won't get any better, but worse.... Read the Book! I have learned that Christian, logically, suffer like everyone else-- BUT, many adversities and complications can be avoided by learning the Bible and following it's wise admonitions. Some of us have a harder time applying some Bible commands and logic-- and so it takes US longer to benefit from those truths. I get angry with myself and frustrated when I have trouble conquering certain "works of the flesh" mentioned in Galatians 4 and 5, but such is our fallen flesh and imperfection, further messed up by the devil. But prayer helps a lot.

Our Mission Statement
A CALL for sound Biblical and Spiritual discernment in the church of JESUS CHRIST at a time of the Great Falling Away. We are called to be His witness in exposing and rebuking false teachings, religions, and deception in these end times so that "Men Are WITHOUT EXCUSE" in claiming they did not know the truth. As Bereans we are asked to test ALL things against the Word of God and call out this apostasy infiltrating our churches. Let us use this group to edify our Lord Jesus Christ by not only pointing out the deception infiltrating our churches but in doing so provide sound Scripture from the Word of God that refutes those false doctrines and teachings so that others are not deceived.
ABOUT the Administrator of this Group:
I'm also an EX-Catholic but NOT Anti-Catholic. However I am 100% PRO-Christ. I stand for the Word of God and I don't care if it's Heinz 57 variety religion, if it's perverting the truth or preaching a different Gospel that was not preached you better believe I am going to stand for the TRUTH. Whether it be Catholic, Mormon, Islam, Seventh Day Adventists, Jehovah Witnesses or any other including the NEW "Emergent Church Movement". I don't care if I lose family or friends in the process. I don't care if the Word of God offends you because it's all we have.
This also applies to Christian Science, Kabbalah, or any pastor in the Emergent Church Movement ( aka Rick Warren, Joel Olsteen, Todd Bently, Benny Hinn, Creoflo Dollar, John Crowder, IHOP, Toronto Blessing and MANY others ) who preach a different Jesus, a false Gospel that was not preached. We are surrounded by WOLVES. Make no mistake. Jesus said the path IS narrow and few will find it. Not many but few. The SIZE of any religion, congregation and ministries following isn't proof that it SPEAKS the TRUTH! We are called as Berean's to test EVERYTHING against the Word of God.
GROUP RULES and AREA OF CONDUCT:
Conspiracy theorists, Blasphemers or mockers of TRUE Biblical Christianity will NOT be permitted to participate on this board as well as those who hold up any other Authority for the Truth outside of the HOLY BIBLE. In addition those who promote holy laughter, prayer soaking, slain by the spirit practices, etc, this is NOT the place for you.
Requests for group membership are on an individual basis and sent for approval by the administrator(s) of this group. If we determine you are not here to learn or open to BIBLICAL correction but only to MOCK and promote false doctrines please go elsewhere. However if you are troubled or truly seeking discermnent through the Word of God I pray this board will be a blessing to you.
For now this Group is set to OPEN so anyone can read it, even if NOT a member in the sincere hope that the Word of God will reach as many of those who are lost in this deception as possible. This may need to change down the road but hopefully not.
By requesting to be a member of this group you agree to abide by the group rules and area of conduct set above. Should you violate these rules you can most likely expect to be removed at anytime. This is not something I would be happy about and hope this would never be the case. But our witness must remain PURE in the eyes of God.
