What "Isn't" the Hebrew Roots Movement?

2010 Brought Praise

By Janae: I don’t consider myself a Christian. I haven’t labeled myself with that term since I found out that it was associated with many things that weren’t quite Biblical. I’ve since become a “Bible Believer”, or rather-one who believes the whole Bible. This doesn’t mean just the New Testament; mind you, but the WHOLE BIBLE-word for word, syllable for syllable, and flood for giant. It’s especially difficult to fill out bubble sheets. The...

Jesus and the Interpreter. A modern-day christian helps Jesus get started.

Modern-day Christians know Jesus so well, that this one decided to travel back in time to help Jesus get his message across right from the start. Those people back in Jesus' time might have mistaken Jesus' own words as actually representing what he really meant! And we wouldn't want that! WARNING: This video is created and promoted by an athiest, demonstrating that the contradictions in modern doctrine creates an obstacle to those who actually read what the Bible says. Thus many do...

What if God Told Us to Wear Seatbelts?

What If God Told Us to Wear Seatbelts? Why would it be easy to misunderstand a man like Paul, who is trying to counter all of the ways that people have twisted and complicated some very simply Commandments? 2nd Peter 3:16 warns about people taking Paul's difficult words to teach Lawlessness, making the "error of the lawless." For example, what if God told us to simply wear seatbelts when in a vehicle? Look at all of the things people would do with that Command, and then you try to counter...

Is our copy of the bible a reliable copy of the ORIGINAL?

OLD TESTAMENT How do we know the Bible has been kept in tact for over 2,000 years of copying? Before the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls our earliest Hebrew copy of the Old Testament was the Masoretic text dating around 800 A.D. The Dead Sea Scrolls date around the time of Jesus copied by the Qumran community, a Jewish sect living around the Dead Sea. We also have the Septuagint which is a Greek translation of the Old Testament dating in the second century B.C. When we compare these...

Is Our Copy Really The Word Of God?

The Proper Cure for the Disease John Warwick Montgomery tells us a parable: A great king (God) had a son (mankind) who had grown up out of contact with his father. While journeying in a distant province the son fell seriously ill. The doctor accompanying him (reason) was incapable of treating the disease, but the king, learning of his son's plight, sent instructions (the gospel) for the healing of the boy. However, the king's numerous enemies also discovered what had happened, and...

Good Friday is a Myth

Jesus Died On A Wednesday!! by Roy A. Reinhold I was quite blown away recently to hear Hal Lindsey state on his national radio program that he has come to believe that the scriptures show a Wednesday crucifixion. Perhaps you ought to examine the evidence and decide for yourself; be like the Bereans who were complimented in scriptures for examining the teaching of Paul in light of the scriptures to see if it was so. There is clear, concrete evidence in the scriptures for a Wednesday...

Can Believing mean NOT Doing?

main image

"John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." Believing means what? Few verses later... "John 3:20-21 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who DOES THE TRUTH comes to the LIGHT, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” Those who hate the light do not come to the light. But...

"Good Eye" vs. "Bad Eye"

The Jewish idiom of the "good eye" refers to loving and taking care of your neighbor, while the idiom of the "bad eye" refers to being selfish and not loving your neighbor. This can be seen in the words of Yeshua: Quote: MATTHEW 6:19 "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 "but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 "For...

Could lead codices prove "the major discovery of Christian history'?

  February 12, 2013 British archaeologists are seeking to authenticate what could be a landmark discovery in the documentation of early Christianity: a trove of 70 lead codices that appear to date from the 1st century CE, which may include key clues to the last days of Jesus' life. As UK Daily Mail reporter Fiona Macrae writes, some researchers are suggesting this could be the most significant find in Christian archeology since the Dead Sea scrolls in 1947. The...

Dancing with the Scriptures: The "But" Boogie

Let us look at two passages that use the word “but” and the interpretations associated with them. Before we start we need to have a quick English Grammar Lesson. The word “but” is a type of coordinating conjunction, also called a coordinator. It is a conjunction that joins two or more items ofequal syntactic importance, such as words, main clauses, or sentences.  Specifically, "but" presents a contrast or exception.  Not left, but...

The Pharisees Were Lawless, and That Was Bad. Is Lawless Now Suddenly Good?

Halley’s Bible Handbook states that the: “Pharisees were the most numerous and influential of the religious sects of Jesus’ day. They were strict legalists. They stood for the rigid observance of the letter and forms of the Law, and also for the Traditions”. Is this view correct? Did the Pharisees stand for the observance of the law, did they keep the law, were they ‘legalists’, or instead did they prefer to keep traditions of men? The first mention of...

His Anointing Teaches You About All Things

These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you. As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him. Now, little children, abide in Him, so that when He appears, we may have confidence and not shrink away from Him in shame at His coming. If you know that He...

Heaven and Earth, and the Law of God

There are at least two reasons why Yeshua (Jesus) said that “not one jot or tittle of the Law of God” can change “till Heaven and Earth passes away.”  Have you ever considered this matter? ‎"Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is...

The "Law" Limbo Begins: "How Low Will They Go?

A.D. First Century

A.D. First Century [Stephen] They are falsely claiming that Jesus (Yeshua) changed what was written in the Law of Moses and setting up false witnesses claiming that I teach the same!  They are going to illegally stone me based on these false accusations and false witnesses! (Acts 6-7) Several years later… [Paul] Wow, everyone keeps saying I teach against the Law of God as written by Moses.  It reminds me of what I saw happen to Stephen years ago. [James] ...

The Pauline Paradox - Lawfulness or Lawlessness?

The Pauline Paradox - Lawfulness or Lawlessness? Are you that sure that Paul teaches that God has abolished or changed His law? Do you attempt to discern what law (instruction) Paul is teaching on in context? Do you realize how many "laws" Paul mentions in his letters? Here are some "laws" Paul specifically mentions: "Law of God" "Law of Sin" "Law of Sin and Death" "Law of Faith" "Law of my mind" "Law of Righteousness" "Law of Christ" Have you ever wondered why Peter says Paul is...

No Law, No Love

As we near the end, false prophets are supposed to appear and take away God's law. Mat 24:11-12 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. The whole point of all of God's law is love, loving God, and loving others. When we abolish it (mostly because of Paul according to Peter - 2 Peter 3:15-17) it creates lawlessness. Even if we abolish just some of it, it creates problems. The less law there is, the less...

The Word is He, In a Doctrinal Pickle are We

John 5:46  For if you BELIEVED MOSES, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me. 47 But if YOU DO NOT BELIEVE HIS WRITINGS, how will you believe MY WORDS?” Moses wrote of Him? John 14:24  He who does not love Me does not keep MY WORDS; and THE WORD which you hear is NOT Mine but the Father’s who sent Me. Not His Words? John 1:14 And the WORD became flesh and dwelt among us, What Word? Mark 7 9 He said to them, “All too well you reject THE COMMANDMENT...

Is Science and the Bible at Odds?

The Bible is often described as a book that includes many ideas that are scientifically inaccurate. The truth is that what many Christians (and non-Christians) have misinterpreted the Bible in such a way as to make it seem to be at odds with the reality of our world. For example, the Roman Catholic Church promoted geocentrism (the idea that the earth is the center of the universe) for many years. This concept is not found in the Bible, but stems from the idea that since humans are the center...
