Read about Your Adoption in Jesus Christ

Excerpts from Trinitarian Letters


Why this book? Why at this time? Why YOU need to know this Truth. Christians and non-Christians alike deep down are not happy or filled with joy. Many Christians have their church clothes, faces, and actions but realize something is missing and they feel like hypocrites when they know full well they are not measuring up to standards they or the Church has set for them. Non-Christians feel miserable not knowing why they are living in this physical world and knowing something is missing in their life but they don't know what it is.

This book comes along on the heels of ancient great church leaders who knew the truth of why God created man in the first place! Men like Irenaus and Athenasius, and later theologians like Karl Barth, T.F. Torrance, J.B. Torrance, C. Baxter Kruger, Colin Gunton, Michael Jinkins, Robert Capon and others knew the real reason God made humanity and why Jesus came to the earth and why Jesus had to die and what Jesus' life, death, resurrection, and ascension meant for All mankind. These great Theologians mentioned here, as do most Theologians, write from an erudite and professorial standpoint. One almost has to be a theologian himself in order to understand what these very learned men write. This book is different. It speaks in layman's language. Clearly. Plainly. Understandably. Written in short and concise revealing chapters or letters.

Why NOW this book? Most of the Christian world and the world as a whole have wandered around the complete truth of the Gospel mainly focusing on the Cross and the forgiveness of our sins rather than on the ORIGINAL purpose God made man in the first place. And make no mistake, the forgiveness of our sins was critical. This book brings the complete Gospel to light.

The really amazing thing about this truth is that it is SO PLAINLY revealed throughout scripture that we could ask ourselves how has it been pushed aside by so many churches and Christians over the centuries?

You need to know this truth!! We have wallowed around in Greek Philosophy long enough. False philosophies which crept into the church over the ages have caused much anguish and unneeded suffering. You will see where they came from and how they have remained in the Western Christian church. We have NOT been set free because we have only had part of the truth that is in Jesus, only part of the Gospel.

Get ready. You are about to read in easily read short chapters the Greatest Good News you will ever hear in your life. You will see it in step by step fashion. You are going to see just how much God the Father LOVES YOU and get this, He always has even BEFORE you were born!!! You are getting ready to see the Real GOSPEL through new lens, new glasses, and new paradigms. Come see THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST.

  • Jesus is the Eternal Contemporary of all time. He is present in all time in creation history and in the future as well. He is simply the " I AM", Eternal.

    When we read in Rev.13:8 that Jesus was slain from the foundation of the world, or we read in Eph.1:3-14 that we were chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world, an interesting question is brought up. How Could this have happened before the birth of Jesus recorded in the book of Luke?

    We are reminded here that God not only exists IN time and space which He created, but He also lives outside of time and space where He has always existed as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—Triune God. And as is the case, He sees everything in the PRESENT from that vantage point. He sees the whole panorama of the human experience "from the foundation of the world". Of course we don't because we are finite beings who only live and exist in time and space. We see from a perspective of past, present and future.

    God clearly says in Isaiah 55:8-9, that His thinking, thoughts, ways, perspectives, etc. are Higher, more advanced, Supremely advanced compared to the thoughts and reasonings of man. Man really can not comprehend the magnitude of the complexity of God's thought processes.

    God knows everything in advance. He sees everything in advance from His perspective ORIGINALLY. Even before creation He sees everything clearly played out on the human stage. (See Psalm 139 and Romans 4:17)

    When we see in Isaiah 7 and Isaiah 9 the account of " a virgin shall conceive", and the announced birth of Jesus as well as the account of the birth of Jesus in Luke 2, these in God's reality are "reenactments" of what already occurred "before the foundation of the world".

    If Rev.13:8 is true and Jesus was slain before the foundation of the world, then in God's eyes, objectively speaking, He was born before the foundation of the world as well.

    Understanding theology a little better allows us to process biblical concepts with greater care than would otherwise be possible.
