Description : What exactly does it mean to be inspired or find inspiration? What does it express or what does it say to you? The search for inspiration is the focus of God-Inspired Messages; author Ethel LaBranche seeks to touch the life of every reader in a way that uplifts, gives insight, and truly motivates. She hopes to influence others for the good and provide inspiration for all. A number of years ago, LaBranche began to write Gospel tracts. It was then that she realized each article, pamphlet, or book needed a well-defined audience. Now she reaches out, being mindful that there are others who want to understand these words and be inspired by God-Inspired Messages from the heart. Its time to change the way we approach God and the way we approach our leaders. A child of God should not think that he can come and go without direction, guidance, or instruction on this journey. God is our guide, and He has given the men and women of God to his people to help us grow spiritually and mature in Christ. God-Inspired Messages will help to show to the way to truth and inspiration.
Description : Yet again, author Steve Wohlberg artfully tackles a huge subject in just a handful of words. He brings into focus the seemingly nebulous topic of the emerging church movement by joining Scripture with history. Jesus Himself firmly noted to His disciples: “Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many” (Matthew 24:4&8211;5). The author makes Christ’s solemn warning personal in that “you” not only meant the disciples, but Christ was speaking directly to you, the reader. Emerging church proponents maintain that a change is needed in the church today; otherwise, many will be lost. They believe that changes need to be made in churches today to appeal to the electronically minded and to keep up with the times. Yet the God of the heavens exclaims, “I am the Lord, I do not change” (Malachi 3:6). The changes that emerging church advocates, such as Leonard Sweet, Brian McLaren, Richard Foster, and others, endorse are not really new. In fact, they are steeped in the Eastern mystic philosophies of Hinduism, Buddhism, and especially that of medieval Rome. “Eastern meditation is an attempt to empty the mind,” Richard Foster wrote in his book Celebration of Discipline. Those partisan to the emerging church doctrine look to Ignatius Loyola, who established the Society of Jesus or the Jesuits, as their founding father. “Inside a cave in Manresa, Spain, Ignatius emptied his mind. The otherworldly impressions did come from a ghostly entity claiming to be the Virgin Mary. That ghost gave directions. ‘Fine,’ Loyola decided. ‘I will obey’” (The Emerging Church Trap, page 24). Christ spoke directly to the danger of emptying our minds in the book of Matthew: “When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. Then he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation.” (Matthew 12:43-45)
Description : Bible Basics is a detailed study of basic Biblical doctrines and teachings. It's a self study guide, with questions at the end of each of the 11 sections. It's designed to go through the basic message of the Bible from start to finish. Bible Basics is a positive presentation of the Gospel, but there are digressions to discuss difficult Bible passages, and to demonstrate that many confusing doctrines such as the Trinity, immortal soul and infant sprinkling are not Biblical nor strictly Christian, but instead merely the creation of mainstream church theologians. The book presents Biblical Christianity. Duncan Heaster is a Christadelphian and the book is also a summary of the doctrines of the Christadelphian faith. The Christadelphian church uses the book as a standard reference.Study 1: God 1.1 The Existence Of God 1.2 The Personality Of God BP 1: Knowing God 1.3 God's Name And Character BP 2: Grace (John Parkes) BP 3: The All Seeing God BP 4: God Is Omnipotent BP 5: Responding To The One God 1.4 The Angels BP 6: God As Creator Dig. 1: God Manifestation Dig. 2: Why The Trinity Was Accepted Study 2: The Spirit Of God 2.1 Definition 2.2 Inspiration 2.3 Gifts Of The Holy Spirit 2.4 The Withdrawal Of The Gifts 2.5 The Bible The Only Authority Dig. 3: Is The Holy Spirit A Person?

Description : “Jesus for Most People” is for people who believe God used the Big Bang to create the universe, used evolution to create people, and sent Jesus to teach. The book updates the Enlightenment outlook. It summarizes scholarly work on Jesus and the early Church. It explains the biological evolution of morality and it looks there for clues about God. Some ideas here about Jesus and about the evolution of morality are new but not silly. The book builds a solid base for reasonable belief, so people can avoid religious and secular wackiness.

Description : The Crucifixion Catalyst, by Don Woodruff, was written to inspire people from all walks of life to read the Bible, meditate on God's Word, and know God's will for their lives. Have you ever read the Bible and asked yourself, "Is the Lord only speaking to me through the scriptures I am reading, or does He have additional messages for me as I meditate on His words?" Don believes that when we read God's Word, we develop a closer fellowship with the Lord. This relationship can be the key that opens the door to subtle instructions from the Lord to assist us in living as believers and coping with daily challenges. As the events unfold that lead to Jesus making His ultimate and loving sacrifice for sinners, we get a glimpse of some subtle, unspoken messages the Lord may be communicating to His children on His way to the cross. It is Don's hope that The Crucifixion Catalyst will inspire you to understand and align with God's will for your life, listen for His special messages, and develop a deeper, more fulfilling relationship with our Creator-Jesus Christ.
