Controversial Bible Topics

Two friends of mine, Reverend Thurman Harris and Bishop Bill Dishman, inspired me to write this book. We would often talk of the differences in the theology of various churches on many topics.

I tested some of these topics by the text in the Bible, looking to verify each viewpoint from their perspective. I tested these topics using the Bible verses in the way that they would apply them. By taking the Bible verses within their context, we can see if they are demonstrating support for their particular topical viewpoints. I have provided the Bible verses using the King James version. In some cases, I also provided commentaries on the Bible verses that may aid in their understanding.

By writing this book, I realize that there will always be some people that will feel that their viewpoint is more correct in any case.

The Bible, having been given to us by the Holy Spirit, is for two purposes: one to instruct us for spiritual growth, the second is how to seek and to save that which is lost leading them to salvation.

But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen. (2 Peter 3:18)

For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. (Luke 19:10)
