Knowing God for Real reveals the truth about what it takes to not only be saved, but to be living for the Kingdom. The kingdom represents the mindset and stability of the believer, as we are the kingdom of God (Heb.). This book expounds on such topics as: Taking the Mask off- Too many people are in church under false pretenses, wrong motives but put on the church face and mentality (religiosity) based on what they know. They look clean on the outside but inside they are someone else as stated in Jeremiah "they speak with there mouth but there heart is far from me. We lie to ourselves we lie to others in a nut shell we lie to God. Church Age - The church has become compromised, watered down and a home of fame and entertainment. Holiness is no longer the motto. Instead we seek the hand of God and not his face. Power struggle runs rampant and titles has taken the place of True Anointing. This book deals with the true calling of the church and it's ministry of reconciliation, holiness and sanctification. Destiny Revealed - Many believers walk around blind sighted with no vision and no idea of what God has called them to do. Without a vision the people perish. Believers struggle with finding their rightful place in the kingdom because they do not seek to know what is the good and perfect will of God for our lives. Therefore, we just go to church, but never walk in purpose and destiny. Be Blessed and Enjoy Knowing God For Real

There are moments in life when the everyday is touched by something more glorious than we usually encounter. The beauty of a summer dawn, the kindness of a stranger, the comfort of feeling held during a time of great personal difficulty - perhaps an experience like this has got us wondering. Perhaps it has got us thinking about God. Is God for Real? is the question many struggle with. So Chris Leonard spoke to people from all kinds of backgrounds and asked them to explain how their relationship with God works out in practice, during crises, but mainly in normal, everyday life. The stories she has gathered together - of real personal experience - will be an encouragement to us whether we have know God for many years, or are just feeling our way to a trusting relationship with him.

"Logos 5 is the sixth of my ten-volume, Logos 1-7 work, each volume of which is able to stand alone as God’s Book of Life. It took me over 3,000 pages in ten volumes to say How and What is Important to Believe. It seeks to explain by experience who Jesus is, who God is, who the Holy Spirit is, what the Bible is, why it is crucial to life that we believe in them, what “belief” is, what “to be saved” is, just how Salvation is effected, what the “take-away” benefits are, and how to find meaning and purpose in life. “Each of these ten volumes is able to stand alone as God’s Book of Life, portraying Life with the Holy Spirit by belief in the Christ of Jesus as Savior to eternal life with God. The ten volumes relate my Story of Writing God's Book of Life, using nonfiction essays and poetry with daily help of divine intervention in producing the seven-Logos Work of ten volumes, and the four supporting volumes, all seek to fully understand and explain this work inspired by the Holy Spirit, the Christ of Jesus. “The action of God fulfilled for him in seven years all of Rodger Crafton's dreams of becoming a writer of poetry and prose, an armchair philosopher, and an artist working in his new, upstairs garage atelier.”---R.

Christianity Reformed From its Roots

Offering positive alternatives to open-minded believers and unbelievers alike, Christianity Reformed from Its Roots challenges the traditional beliefs of the Roman Catholic Church on God, Jesus, and the Bible. Using the text of the New Testament, theologian and philosopher Jairo Mejia challenges us to rediscover the real Jesus, a humble Peasant of Nazareth glorified by his resurrection. Mejia argues compellingly that a true concept of God is more vital today than ever before and can be understood by both agnostics and atheists-thus asserting that there is no contradiction between science and religion, but a smooth and fulfilling meshing of the two.

A God That Could Be Real

A paradigm-shifting blend of science, religion, and philosophy for agnostic, spiritual-but-not-religious, and scientifically minded readers Many people are fed up with the way traditional religion alienates them: too easily it can perpetuate conflict, vilify science, and undermine reason. Nancy Abrams, a philosopher of science, lawyer, and lifelong atheist, is among them. And yet, when she turned to the recovery community to face a personal struggle, she found that imagining a higher power gave her a new freedom. Intellectually, this was quite surprising. Meanwhile her husband, famed astrophysicist Joel Primack, was helping create a new theory of the universe based on dark matter and dark energy, and Abrams was collaborating with him on two books that put the new scientific picture into a social and political context. She wondered, “Could anything actually exist in this strange new universe that is worthy of the name ‘God?’” In A God That Could Be Real, Abrams explores a radically new way of thinking about God. She dismantles several common assumptions about God and shows why an omniscient, omnipotent God that created the universe and plans what happens is incompatible with science—but that this doesn’t preclude a God that can comfort and empower us. Moving away from traditional arguments for God, Abrams finds something worthy of the name “God” in the new science of emergence: just as a complex ant hill emerges from the collective behavior of individually clueless ants, and just as the global economy emerges from the interactions of billions of individuals’ choices, God, she argues, is an “emergent phenomenon” that arises from the staggering complexity of humanity’s collective aspirations and is in dialogue with every individual. This God did not create the universe—it created the meaning of the universe. It’s not universal—it’s planetary. It can’t change the world, but it helps us change the world. A God that could be real, Abrams shows us, is what humanity needs to inspire us to collectively cooperate to protect our warming planet and create a long-term civilization.

The One God

In what sense is God one? How can those who worship Jesus Christ, his Father, and the Holy Spirit claim to be monotheists? These questions were answered by the early church, and their answering analogies, models, and language have come down to the church today. However, theology is not stagnant, and the twentieth century has seen several new models of the Trinity emerge. Many of these models have focused on the three persons without adequately considering the consequences for the unity of God. The One God seeks to develop an understanding of the unity of the Triune God by examining the positions put forward by Karl Rahner, Millard Erickson, John Zizioulas, and Wolfhart Pannenberg. After carefully presenting and critically examining each of these positions, this book offers a synthesis: an understanding of the unity of God that is historically informed, theologically adequate, internally coherent, and able to explain Christian monotheism in a new century. By affirming both the singular divine essence of God and the genuine, eternal interdependence of distinct divine persons in God, The One God affirms the personal and the natural levels of ontology, both crucial for understanding God, humanity, and the world.

Covering Up Luther

Karl Barth's Christology provides a key to out-narrating the Deus absconditus, which, as Rustin Brian contends, is in fact the god of modernity. Included in this is the rejection of the logical and philosophical systems that allow for the modern understanding of God as the Deus absconditus, namely, dialectics and nominalism. This rejection is illustrated, interestingly enough, in Barth's decision to literally cover up, with a rug, Martin Luther's works in his personal library. Surely this was more than a decorative touch. The reading of Barth's works that results from this starting point challenges much of contemporary Barth scholarship and urges readers to reconsider Barth. Through careful examination of a large body of Barth's writings, particularly in regard to the issues of the knowledge or knowability of God, as well as Christology, Brian argues that contemporary Barth scholarship should be done in careful conversation with the finest examples of both Protestant and, especially, Roman Catholic theology. Barth's paradoxical Christology thus becomes the foundation for a dogmatic ecumenicism. Barth's Christology, then, just might be able to open up possibilities for discussion and even convergence, within a church that is anything but one.

Because God Smiled, I am Laughing is a book that shares some of the Supernatural moves of God in my life, from prophecies fulfilled to the appearance of ministering angels. I also write to dispel some of the false doctrines that limit spiritual growth in the lives of Christians and the church at large. My vision of who God is comes from years of devotion to prayer, study of His written Word and seeking not the approval of man.

Because God made a promise to Abraham concerning inheriting the land of Israel, a question arises. To which line of Abraham's descendants was the Promise made? That's important because they worship different Gods. This poses the problem, who is the true God? This is the question of the ages concerning all claims of Deity. All things of life and death depend on that answer. This book addresses questions from the perspective that the God of the Bible through Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is the true God and the God of true Christianity. It distinguishes between true and counterfeit Christianity. The war that started with Satan's attempt to dethrone God and elevate himself to the Almighty is the defining factor of conflict. Association is made between spiritual determinations and earthly happenings. The next earthly event distinguishing where we are in time is the Russian invasion of Israel. The only remaining possibility for Satan's success is stopping God from keeping His promise to Abraham. The mid-east peace problem is not just about ownership of land, but about "who is God"? Also addressed - doctrines and theories taught in error. Dispensations, covenants, and promises are defined. How Revelation is structured and plays out is explained. ne purpose of the book is to cause the reader to "think." Not just about things termed "religious" but in truth, how all things are related, especially "political." Hopefully it gives insight on how to prepare mentally, spiritually, and materially for what Scripture says will happen. Evidence shows we are the generation that experiences the Biblical end times and the fulfillment of God's promise to Abraham. America must choose - follow the true God or the Satanic one-world government! The book challenges the true Church to reestablish scripture as our highest authority and be about our task.

Metanoia: A Catholic eTract Series, Volume Number Two: Prayer and the Tingling Grace is the author’s second publication in a series of Catholic etracts. In Prayer and the Tingling Grace, the author sets forth his personal account of God’s deification, justification/sanctification, healing, and salvation of his soul through what he describes as “the tingling grace,” as well as that special grace’s role in his exhortation of others to get right their relationship with Jesus Christ. He is publishing it to testify and/or witness to the Reality, Truth, and Love that is God, especially in light of the current crisis of faith in the increasingly post-Christian, hedonistic, nihilist, and occult West. Finally, this etract is part of the author’s lay apostolate of Catholic-Christian witness to the reality, power, and transforming/saving Love of God, as well as the author’s response to and promotion of the Church’s “universal call to holiness” (Lumen Gentium) and the “new evangelization” (Novo Millenio Ineunte), in the electronically and globally connected virtual world of the Internet.

The JCIM derives from the Hugh Lynn Cayce version of the Course, which was completed by Helen Shucman and Bill Thetford in 1972. Later editing by others removed about 25% of the material contained in the first five chapters and made numerous editorial changes which affected both the tone and the content of the message. Many students consider study of the unabridged JCIM version to be indespensible in their curriculum.Text only. This edition does not include the Workbook or the Teachers' Manual.There is a good explanation of the JCIM on our website at 306 pages plus 102 page appendix comparing the JCIM with the popular commercial version of the Course.
