 THE DISCLAIMER:                                                                                                                               I probably do not agree with everything that anyone has to say in their articles on this site, nor have I ever totally agreed with anyone I have met in life. This probably includes you also. And there probably isn’t anyone out there who agrees with everything I believe or have to say either. I am not your spiritual father, teacher, and definitely not your Lord or the Holy Spirit, nor am I your psychiatrist, psychologist nor a priest (See Matt23:8-10, Heb3:1, 1Peter2:9, etc). If I only placed articles on my site that I considered perfect, then I probably wouldn’t be able to place any articles on my site ever, including my own. Now that I have said that, I do believe there is truth to be found in every article on my site. It is up to you and the Holy Spirit in you to discern what is good, and to ponder or reject the rest. So, that is all I have to say about that, thus ending my disclaimer. :)          I liked this disclaimer so I borrowed it. Garry G. Laser

ChristAtWork

CHRIST AT WORK
IN YOU

Many who call themselves “Christians” seem to be oblivious to and unconcerned about the fact that the character of their behavior is selfishly misrepresentative of Jesus Christ, and fails to manifest the “fruit of the Spirit.”

 

 

 

 

WhatsInYourHand

WHAT’S THAT
IN YOUR HAND?

When Moses was working for his father-in-law, Jethro, leading sheep around the desert-wilderness, he turned aside to see a burning bush. God spoke to him from the burning bush, and asked, “What’s that in your hand?”

GospelsComm

A COMMENTARY
ON THE
FOUR GOSPELS

This generalized commentary on the four gospel-records of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John in harmony is an attempt to see the “big picture” of the radically new “good news” that Jesus introduced as inherent within Himself.

 

 

 

GalatiansComm

A COMMENTARY
ON THE EPISTLE
TO THE GALATIANS

Jim Fowler believes that “Galatianism” is pervasive and prevalent in the churches today, as religious legalists have duped Christians with the proclamation of “how-to” Christian religion in prescribed procedures, formulas, techniques and duties.

 

 

 

HebrewsComm

A COMMENTARY
ON THE EPISTLE
TO THE HEBREWS

The Epistle to the Hebrews has long suffered from anonymity. Jim Fowler concludes that the evidence overwhelming points to the traditional explanation of the Apostle Paul writing from Rome to the Hebrew Christians in Jerusalem.

 

 

 

RevelationComm

A COMMENTARY
ON THE
REVELATION OF JOHN

Jim Fowler regards the antagonist and adversary of the risen Lord Jesus throughout the imagery of Revelation to be Satan’s enterprise of “religion.”

THE TRIUNE GOD
IN CHRISTIAN THOUGHT
AND EXPERIENCE

The Trinity has been both confusing and controversial. This is due to early Christian thinkers developing their thought on Greek philosophy rather than on the revelation of God in Jesus Christ.
