Understanding the Deeper Truths of God
About the Book
WHAT SATAN CANNOT CONQUER – HE CONTAMINATES! Many churches today are blatantly disobedient in carrying out the Great Commission as given to us by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Himself. Therefore, they provide and incorrect and ineffective witness for the kingdom mission to the world. The Commission mandates that New Testament churches everywhere, “make disciples.” Most churches “baptize them” but neglect to “teach them to obey all things” that He has commanded. Neglect of this vital component only produces more biblically illiterate and confused Christians. Lacking the knowledge of the truth, vulnerable Christians are succumbing in great numbers to the secular, atheistic agenda, aberrant doctrine, and blatant heresy. The immediate prioritizing and reinstitution of true Christian theological education, pastoral training, and leadership development are crucial to correctly grow Christians into spiritually and biblically mature disciples [according to pattern].
