Description : The Twelve Pillars represent 12 key doctrines or teachings that are basic to true faith for every Christian. These 12 doctrines stand or fall together. They all relate to each other and are essential to a true "Gospel of Grace". . There are many today who are deluded by false 'gospels'. These 12 'pillars' may be seen be a test of the true way of salvation as revealed in the New Testament. They are entitled: The Sovereignty of God, The Gospel of Grace, The Five 'Solas' and The Five Doctrines of Grace, This book may be used to teach new disciples so that they may be grounded in the Faith and enabled to share that faith with others.

Description : The revelations contained in the Bible serve as a supreme guide by which to measure all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions—and today’s Christians are in steady moral and spiritual decline. A 2010 survey by the Barna Research Group reveals that in American churches, Christians have become less knowledgeable about the Bible, less interested in spiritual disciplines, and more desirous of secular techniques to solve life’s problems, thus blurring the distinction between their conduct and that of nonbelievers. In Seven Pillars of Christianity: An Introduction to the Essential Christian Doctrines, Dr. William Ekane reveals the life-transforming foundations of the Christian faith and issues a clarion call for Christians to return to authentic Christianity. First presenting his compelling case for the scientific reliability and divine origin of the Bible, Dr. Ekane works closely with Scripture as he leads us through everything from the Lord Jesus Christ to trust and faith in the living God to, finally, the five major judgments and Revelation. These practical, strategic insights and essential truths are invaluable to new converts as well as mature believers. The Word of the Holy Spirit offers transformation, illuminating our hearts and minds as we strengthen our spiritual foundation and grow deeper in God.

Description : WE'VE SEEN THE PHOTOS-and maybe, if we traveled to Greece, we've even seen them in person; the Parthenon...the Acropolis...magnificent buildings with tall, fluted columns on all sides. These columns-or pillars-were also used routinely in the structures of ancient Rome.Supported by a solid granite or limestone foundation, the pillars on the perimeter of these massive buildings soared skyward, standing like watchmen guarding the entrances.On the firm foundation of Jesus Himself, mighty pillars of truth stand as support columns for His last-day church-pillars such as the Sabbath, the state of man in death, the second coming, the sanctuary truth, and others.In Pillars of the Christian Faith, 3 ABN Founder Danny Shelton and President/CEO Jim Gilley explore and describe these pillars one by one, showing how each is vital and indispensable to the mission and message of God's remnant people-how each of them make a difference in our own lives.You'll be greatly blessed as you consider once again these stately pillars of truth and apply them to your own daily living.

Description : Christianity is based upon claims that are nothing short of remarkable. So what exactly is Christianity? It stands on these four pillars: We claim there is a God. We assert that God came to earth as man, lived a sinless and blameless life, and willingly sacrificed himself as a solution to sin and a means to reconcile man with God. We also claim that the crucifixion of this man was not the end of the story. Indeed, it was just the start of a truly remarkable third claim that the crucified man was brought back to life after being most decidedly dead. Finally, we declare that because the first three claims are true, we have a means to understand and respond to suffering and pain that transcends whatever circumstances we may find ourselves in. Each claim is an indispensable part of Christianity. We owe a reasoned answer to the skeptic who is asking with good reason why anyone might believe such incredible claims. Also, since God left the church to spread his story, we owe it to God to tell his story accurately. To God be the glory.

Description : What is your faith built on? Is it firmly grounded on biblical truth or do you rely on the insights of your pastor or the beliefs of your family? Paul warned the Ephesians to not be blown around by various teachings but to study and remain unified in the faith and teachings of Jesus. "Foundation and Pillars of the Christian Faith" is a compilation of Bible texts and Spirit of Prophecy quotes that seeks to keep you grounded in the Word of God and the prophets to protect you against unbiblical doctrines, just as Paul urged. The book focuses on foundational Bible truths such as the new covenant, the sanctuary, the law of God, Creation, the fall of man, the atonement, the three angels' messages, the judgment, and the new earth.

Description : Our Power and Wisdom The book of Proverbs says, “Wisdom has built her house, she has set up her seven pillars” (Proverbs 9:1). And the apostle Paul referred to Jesus Christ as “the power of God and the wisdom of God” (1 Corinthians 1:24) to us. Legendary Bible teacher Herbert Lockyer unfolds the seven “pillars” of divine wisdom demonstrated in Christ’s incarnation and redeeming work on earth that the church upholds as essential truths of the faith. Understanding these pillars will help us to become more like Jesus and to fulfill God’s purposes, both here and in eternity: The Pillar of Mystery The Pillar of Incarnation The Pillar of Vindication The Pillar of Revelation The Pillar of Proclamation The Pillar of Belief The Pillar of Glorification The early church was dynamic in its witness because it continued steadfastly in these pillars of the Christian faith. Likewise, when we meditate reverently on the events and truths of Jesus’ coming to earth, we appreciate more deeply the great salvation that we have received, and we become more eager and able to share these liberating truths with others.

Description : This book is a history, an album, and a collection of the choicest sermons and essays. It is a history of our great leaders who have fought hard and long for Bible principles and doctrines, and by their consecrated, and, in some instances, heroic lives, have shown themselves to be worthy of the title: Pillars of Orthodoxy. The arrangement of the book is such that the reader can study separately the lives of each of these great men and read the specimen sermon or essay without reference to any of the others. Each life sketch is complete in itself, and no one chapter is dependent on another. The life sketch of Richard Fuller, and his great sermon on the "Desire of All Nations," for instance, is a complete chapter to itself, without reference to anything else in the book. This feature enables the busy reader to read a, chapter at a time, and there is nothing lost by the long intervals between his opportunities to read. In a book where one chapter is directly connected with another, much is lost by failing to read straight through. The last chapter can be read first in this book and nothing will be lost by it. It is always a pleasure to look into the face of a great man. There is something elevating about it. The pictures of these men, "who seem to be pillars" (Galatians 2:9), are the very best that can be obtained. The reader, therefore, while he studies the life, may look into the faces of these men who have made so much glorious history. By that means these pillars of orthodoxy will seem to be old friends, and it will make their life work seem more real. It can be safely assumed that the sermons and essays, published as specimens in this book, are the best that have ever been published. Some of them are published here for the first time, while others have been published and have become famous. It is a pleasure to present to the public a volume containing the very cream of the best thought from the strongest men in the Baptist denomination.

Description : "To love [God] with all your heart, with all your understanding and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices." –Jesus' words in Mark 12:33 Without question the crucial issue in living the Christian life is the condition of your heart. Actions may be temporarily deceiving, but ultimately our outward behavior will reflect what's inside, because our internal attitudes form who we really are. Those inner attitudes are also what God deems most important. In this book one of Christianity's most respected Bible teachers and pastors examines the foundational attitudes, or "pillars," of Christian character as outlined in God's Word. Pillars such as genuine faith, obedience, humility, selfless love, forgiveness, self-discipline, gratitude, and worship. To some degree each trait, on its own, marks a person as one of God's own and reveals an active, living faith. Each is an essential element of mature Christianity. But there is transforming power when you combine them in your everyday living as God commands. Your character will be grounded in godliness; you will see things from an eternal perspective; and your faith, your actions, your witness to others will be revitalized from the inside out.

To those of us who are Christians: Have we truly grasped the mission of Jesus, and do our actions and character faithfully reflect His authority as our Lord and Savior? Imagine a church in which faith in Christ was so deeply entrenched, its pastor would be spiritually fed each week by the congregation, instead of the dynamic seen today. It would be a church so biblically-grounded, so rooted in faith, and so confident of the Gift of Salvation from Christ that the pursuit of God's Promises would be a natural condition. "7 Pillars of an Unshakable Christian Faith" speaks to the soul of every true Christian willing to follow the teachings of Christ, the path of Biblical Discipleship, and the guidance of The Holy Spirit through Scripture. Every reader will find its content informative, practical, and easy to apply in modern Christian life. Pillar #1: Bible Study Methods and Correct Interpretation Pillar #2: Christ's Commission and Biblical Discipleship Pillar #3: Biblical History and Historical Theology Pillar #4: Biblical Apologetics and Defending Christianity Pillar #5: Purposeful Prayer and Biblical Fasting Pillar #6: Spiritual Warfare and Defeating Temptation Pillar #7: Applying Biblical Truth in Modern Christian Life Michael I.

Description : “AND SAMPSON SAID TO THE YOUNG MAN WHO HELD HIM BY THE HAND, ‘LET ME FEEL THE PILLARS ON WHICH THE HOUSE RESTS, THAT I MAY LEAN AGAINST THEM’” (Judges 16:26, ESV) Mark Finely has rightly said that there are “seven basic teachings” on which God has built His church. “Wisdom has built her house, she has hewn out her seven pillars.” These seven pillars are essential, and “the non-negotiables:” Scripture (John 17:17) Salvation (John 3:16) Second Coming (John 14:1-3) Sabbath (John 14:15) State of the Dead (John 11:11-26) Sanctuary (John 17:4, 11, 24) Holy Spirit and Spirit of Prophecy (John 14:15-17) (Prov. 9:1; Mark Finely, Solid Ground, p. 374) “The house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth” is built on these seven pillars, 1 Tim. 3:15. Because of this, Dr. Norman identifies the church as an eight pillar. This eight pillar rests on the other seven “non-negotiables.” These “non-negotiables” are in turn rooted and grounded in Christ, and they define who we are as a biblical community of faith. Tragically though, great uncertainty concerning the pillars abound. The “non-negotiables” are under assault. And this assault will intensify as a mighty sifting sieve. “Those who seek to remove the old landmarks . . . bring in theories that would remove the pillars of our faith concerning the sanctuary . . . [they are] working as blind men . . . [they are] seeking to bring in uncertainties and to set the people of God adrift without an anchor,” (E. G. White, Manuscript Release No. 760. P. 9, 1905). If there ever was a time, we needed the resolve of Sampson, it is now! The author hopes that this book will inspire this resolve—a resolve that will lead us back to the pillars; back to the “non-negotiables.” Like Sampson, may we feel the pillars once again, and lean on “the non-negotiables” centered in Christ.

Description : Long the dominant religion of the West, Christianity is now rapidly becoming the principal faith in much of the postcolonial world--a development that marks a momentous shift in the religion's very center of gravity. In this eye-opening book, Lamin Sanneh examines the roots of this "post-Western awakening" and the unparalleled richness and diversity, as well as the tension and conflict, it has brought to World Christianity. Tracing Christianity's rise from its birth on the edge of the Roman empire--when it proclaimed itself to be a religion for the entire world, not just for one people, one time, and one place--to its key role in Europe's maritime and colonial expansion, Sanneh sheds new light on the ways in which post-Western societies in Africa, Asia, and Latin America were drawn into the Christian orbit. Ultimately, he shows, these societies outgrew Christianity's colonial forms and restructured it through their own languages and idioms--a process that often occurred outside, and sometimes against, the lines of denominational control. The effect of such changes, Sanneh contends, has been profound, transforming not only worship, prayer, and the interpretation of Scripture, but also art, aesthetics, and music associated with the church. In exploring this story of Christianity's global expansion and its current resurgence in the non-Western world, Sanneh pays close attention to such issues as the faith's encounters with Islam and indigenous religions, as well as with secular ideologies such as Marxism and nationalism. He also considers the challenges that conservative, non-Western forms of Christianity pose to Western liberal values and Enlightenment ideas. Here then is a groundbreaking study of Christianity's role in cultural innovation and historical change--and must reading for all who are concerned with the present and future of the faith.

Description : What is evangelism? Have you ever asked that question? For most people the word conjures up a great deal of pictures or thoughts that run the ambit of fanatics running the streets with tracts in their hands to the nice little Christian who models their faith through a quiet lifestyle. Is either of these correct? Is the answer somewhere in the middle? Is there a correct answer at all? I believe that there is. This book is designed to walk one through the ministry principles and actions of the greatest evangelist of all times, Jesus Christ. He remains the best example of communicating the good news in a purposeful, personal, progressive, practical, and pervasive manner. The steps to an effective witness are in following pillar principles demonstrated by Jesus. The confidence to be involved in evangelism is tied to following the pillar principles of evangelism. The understanding of what to say, how to say it and when to say it are found in the pillar principles of evangelism demonstrated by Jesus and are explained in this book. If you desire a practical tool to learn more about evangelism and teach others the same then this book is for you.

Description : Enter God’s Story of Faithfulness to His People The Christian faith extends beyond our personal experiences, our individual churches, and far beyond our present age. This, for the Christian, is great news. When we become acquainted with the legacy of our Christian heritage, we connect our stories to those of the faithful believers who have come before us. This connection is precisely what Nathan Busenitz, Dean of Faculty and professor of church history at The Master's Seminary, seeks to provide. Based on the bestselling Fundamentals of the Faith, Forerunners of the Faith outlines the biblical orthodoxy that characterizes the true church. Busenitz then succinctly identifies thirteen key lessons that capture the trials and triumphs of the historical Church, providing insights for how the ancient Christians responded to the problems of their day to become the pillars of faith we now consider them to be. Learn how your faith stands on the shoulders of giants like Athanasius, Augustine, and Wycliffe. As more than a didactic resource, Forerunners of the Faith serves as spiritual encouragement as we remember the legacy of God’s faithfulness to his people. Using this teaching guide, become empowered and equipped to lead your group through Forerunners of the Faith. Find answers to every lesson and insightful teaching notes.

Description : The Bible's Satanic verses are the third of the four pillars of religion that have contributed to the development of the concepts of obedience and evil in Western culture. The first pillar is the story of the expulsion of Adam and Eve from Paradise due to their disobedience to God. The second is the story of Abraham's obedience to God. Abraham was willing to obey God and sacrifice his son Isaac. In view of Abraham's obedience, God ultimately did not require him to sacrifice Isaac. These first two stories, which form the basis of the Western culture of obedience, are about obedience to God. The Satanic verses introduce the concept of obedience to civil authorities. The two stories about obedience to God, together with Paul's call for obedience to civil authorities, comprise three of the foundation pillars of the Western culture of obedience. The fourth pillar is the military system. The Church has established a hierarchical regime that has its basis in these foundations. As a result, obedience has become an integral part of Western culture. Today, we know from, among other things, the research of Milgram and Zimbardo, together with Hanna Arendt's studies of evil during World War II, that obedience and evil are closely related concepts. The Satanic verses have persuaded many Christians, including priests, bishops and other representatives of the Church, to obey Hitler, Mussolini, Franco, and other tyrants and despots. Today, the Satanic verses are used as an argument in support of the death penalty. In this way, Jesus's message of love has become, by means of seven simple verses in Paul's epistles, an argument that is used to support killing people. The purpose of this book is to get to grips with the Pauline impulse. This is an historic impulse that has oppressed and excluded people, and created an intolerant version of Christianity. It has also established obedience as a fundamental principle in Western culture. As a consequence, Jesus's message of love has become a tool for evil. This Pauline impulse has been instrumental in the destruction of the lives of millions of people throughout history. Pauline Christianity versus Christian faith is expressed in, among other places, the Satanic verses. The theologian Myers, one of the leading authorities on the Epistle to the Romans, says that the Satanic verses "[have] caused much needless suffering and much misery even in the 20th century". To emphasize how Christians have interpreted the Satanic verses in practice up until our own times, the following quotation from Myers is illustrative: "In fact, many Christians in Hitler's Germany appealed to this text [the Satanic verses] as the decisive biblical warrant for obedience to the Nazi regime". The point cannot be made more clearly. Right up until the present day, the Satanic verses have been used to argue that evil should be allowed to develop. The underlying hypothesis of this book may be expressed as follows: If too much emphasis is given to obedience, then this may provide the fundament for evil because obedience and evil are two sides of the same coin. However, an important point to remember when understanding this hypothesis is to make a distinction between obedience and discipline. Obedience is related to following orders. Discipline is related to following a knowledgeable authority.

Description : Personal friendships with Somali Muslims overcome the prejudices and expand the faith of a typical American Evangelical Christian living in the Horn of Africa. When Rachel Pieh Jones moved from Minnesota to rural Somalia with her husband and twin toddlers eighteen years ago, she was secure in a faith that defined who was right and who was wrong, who was saved and who needed saving. She had been taught that Islam was evil, full of lies and darkness, and that the world would be better without it. Luckily, locals show compassion for this blundering outsider who can't keep her headscarf on or her toddlers from tripping over AK-47s. After the murder of several foreigners forces them to evacuate, the Joneses resettle in nearby Djibouti. Jones recounts, often entertainingly, the personal encounters and growing friendships that gradually dismantle her unspoken fears and prejudices and deepen her appreciation for Islam. Unexpectedly, along the way she also gains a far richer understanding of her own Christian faith. Grouping her stories around the five pillars of Islam - creed, prayer, fasting, giving, and pilgrimage - Jones shows how her Muslim friends' devotion to these pillars leads her to rediscover ancient Christian practices her own religious tradition has lost or neglected. Jones brings the reader along as she reexamines her assumptions about faith and God through the lens of Islam and Somali culture. Are God and Allah the same? What happens when one's ideas about God and the Bible crumble and the only people around are Muslims? What happens is that she discovers that Jesus is more generous, daring, and loving than she ever imagined.

Description : The book, "The 5 Pillars of Faith: Understanding the forces that anchor our faith in God and how to walk in the realities of His Word" is the first of the series on teachings about faith. It is designed to guide you seamlessly into a faith man or woman and strengthen your Christian walk with the Lord. Many in their confusion about the subject of faith and their Christian life have given up on God. They feel faith in God is something that is unrealistic. You don't actually need to struggle with your faith. The only reason that you may find yourself struggling to act faith is that you don't understand the forces that anchor our faith in God. Faith does not work in isolation. There are certain virtues in which its lack in our Christian walk can make our faith in God ineffective. These virtues can otherwise be referred to as the pillars of faith and the operation of these virtues in our lives inevitably cause us to simultaneously act and grow in faith. This simply defines the focus of this book - to help grow your faith from nowhere to a giant faith in God. As Christians, we need faith to do everything in life. Our daily walk with God ought to be born of faith and victorious. At this point, I want to promise you by the grace of God that you are going to experience a total turnaround in your Christian life as you apply the lessons you are going to learn from this book in your personal life as a Christian. God bless you.

Description : Enter God’s Story of Faithfulness to His People The Christian faith extends beyond our personal experiences, our individual churches, and far beyond our present age. This, for the Christian, is great news. When we become acquainted with the legacy of our Christian heritage, we connect our stories to those of the faithful believers who have come before us. This connection is precisely what Nathan Busenitz, Dean of Faculty and professor of church history at The Master's Seminary, seeks to provide. Based on the bestselling Fundamentals of the Faith, Forerunners of the Faith outlines the biblical orthodoxy that characterizes the true church. Busenitz succinctly identifies thirteen key lessons that capture the trials and triumphs of the historical Church, providing insights for how the ancient Christians responded to the problems of their day to become the pillars of faith we now consider them to be. Learn how your faith stands on the shoulders of giants like Athanasius, Augustine, and Wycliffe. As more than a didactic resource, Forerunners of the Faith serves as spiritual encouragement as we remember the legacy of God’s faithfulness to his people.
