In addition I’d like to inform you that most of these theories are all fairly young. They have been mostly developed during and after the Protestant Reformation and were popularized mostly during the period known as the Great Awakening in the 1800’s. Some of t...Read Full Post »

The Origins of the Christmas Tree
(1) Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:
(2) Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
(3) For the customs of the people [are] vain: for [one] cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
(4) They deck it with silver and with gold; the...Read Full Post »

The Laws that God Specifically Gave to Gentiles
More recently I had a man, who considered himself a pastor, and who did actually lead a church, he desired to debate with me about if God ever really gave any Laws to gentiles at all.

The issue is only answerable when we study the culture of the Bible times and the Law itself, by doing this we can arrive at three possible...Read Full Post »

The evidence of the Holy Spirit, the evidence that you have the Holy Spirit is a holy walk with the Creator. It is not that you speak in tongues, as some have incorrectly assumed. Anyone can speak in tongues, which simply means speaking a foreign language. No the evidence is not speaking a foreign language. The evidence is a holy walk, it is keeping Torah. Miraculously speaking in a foreign language that one had not previously known is a sign...Read Full Post »
