The "Godification" of Lord Messiah Jesus Is Not Scriptural

What is from Scripture is this: Adam was a Man, and Lord Jesus, the Last Adam is a Man, in whom the Fullness Of Abba Father [Dwells]...Col. 2:9. notice the TRUTH...that Father Dwells in Lord Jesus....Yet Lord Messiah Jesus REMAINS A MAN....

For ONLY the Father is God ...Deut. 6:4, Mark 12:29

 It was lord Jesus...who said...."There is no one good but God alone." Mark 10:18.........and also died....but, God cannot die.

1 Cor 15:45.....So also it is written, "The first MAN, Adam, BECAME A LIVING SOUL." The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.

This is clear that the Lord Jesus came about as a Creation of Abba Father Matt.1:1-18, John 1;1-14, the only True God Alone....MADE A Perfectly WILLING and Obedient LORD JESUS to become what He is ....LORD and Messiah and Ruling As GOD at His Right Hand, the Father EXALTED HIM to DO SO....

in Scripture, There is no Eternal God The Son to be found, that can self-exist without the Father.....capisce? Matthew and John CLEARLY record His Genesis was FROM The Word Of GOD, His begetting by The POWER of the holy Spirit.

Everlasting Father...means that Lord Jesus Is the Last Adam.....and He is also the Father of all the sons of God, the new Creations. But, He is not without a beginning.  We, who are born again also receive Everlasting Life....through Lord Messiah Jesus; for all Creation has a beginning.

But, WE WERE IN CHRIST Who Is the WORD of God before the foundation of the world.....Eph.1:4..... so, before Abraham was, WE WERE In Christ in the Word of God also... John 8:58....

The Word that was with God....John 1:1...is what Lord Jesus is referencing...(not some mythical, literal pre-existence as a god)...He Is the Word Of God made Flesh...

LOL you can throw stones if you want to...it profits you nothing....

Where were we? John 1:1...in the WORD in Christ in the .....Bosom of Abba Father...who INTENDED ALL THINGS BY THE POWER OF HIS HOLY NAME.....

The Godification of Lord Jesus is a myth....even Moses knew this...Deut.18:18...Paul, the Lord's chosen Apostle, also knew this..1 Tim. 2:5, 1Cor. 8:6

Deut. 18:18....'I will raise up a prophet from among their countrymen like you, and I will put My words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him. 19 It shall come about that whoever will not listen to My words which he shall speak in My name, I Myself will require it of him.…

God cannot be born.....Matthew 1 declares that Messiah Jesus was born....

No mysterious and eternally questionable "Trinity" necessary...

Questions For Trinitarians

Have you ever considered how the unnecessary "Godification" of the Lord Jesus in the "Trinity".....diminishes the awesome Power of the One True God (Abba Father Only)..?

And the AMAZING TRUTH that Lord Jesus did and still does ALL HE EVER WILL DO as a WILLING CREATION MADE FROM and BY ABBA Father !!!!!!!!

And diminishes the Awesome accomplishments of the WORD of ABBA Father who SPOKE INTO BEING a willing, ONLY Begotten SON... MAN...and not to mention...

the whole History of the World that ABBA Father Planned through Messiah ( The Word Of God made Flesh)....HIS PERFECT SUBMISSION UNTIL DEATH !!!!!

Which is EXACTLY WHAT Christians are called to: Following Lord Jesus In  [His Way] to the Father, [His Truth] from the Father, [His Life] of the Father...

..Being Faithful in Obeying Our Lord Jesus Until death or the Lord's Return.

If He was God the Son of a Trinity...why was this LEARNING/Suffering ....needed and endured by the whole Human race since Adam....until  Messiah and still continues ? ...Hebrews 5:8


There is no Biblical Trinitarian answer for this.....but if you can cobble one together...bring it!

Trinitarians, PLEASE STOP Persecuting Your Unitary Monotheist Christian Brethren

Scripture Is Clear....that we must contend for the ONE Faith....as part of offering our bodies and our lives as living sacrifices to Our God....which is Our religious service.

 Jude 1:3 Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints.

Romans 12:1 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.

"Trinitarian" thinking....refuted....again...and again ..and again...until we STAND before HIM at His Judgment seat in LIGHT of Matthew 11:27......which "Trinitarians" RARELY QUOTE....read it to find out WHY...

Matt. 11:26 "Yes, Father, for this way was well-pleasing in Your sight.

27 "All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, AND ANYONE TO WHOM THE SON WILLS TO REVEAL.... HIM (WHO IS ABBA FATHER....is He just a person of a Trinity?)....99% of the Jews and millions of God's people think NOT.

28  "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.…

The doctrine of the Trinity is just the kind of burden that the Lord helped me shed....and NOW I am helping others shed it's unnecessary weight and burden also. 
 


Stop the inapt exaltation of this eternally questionable and ultra-mysterious doctrine....and live in the GLORIOUS LIGHT OF MATTHEW 11:27....

Stop calling the many thousands of Unitarian brethren who follow Lord Jesus, "heretics" and saying that "we don't know the Truth"; and Let Lord Messiah Jesus Choose and Judge...whom He will allow into the Kingdom of God, His and Our Father...AMEN.... 

Does Israel's Blessing Of His Grandchildren Involve A Person Of The "Trinity"?

 Well, let's see.

Here is the account that "Trinitarians" will use to substantiate their claim of their inference of the mysterious "Angel" Israel references in verse 16.

Jacob Blesses Ephraim and Manasseh
14But Israel stretched out his right hand and laid it on the head of Ephraim, who was the younger, and his left hand on Manasseh's head, crossing his hands, although Manasseh was the firstborn. 15He blessed Joseph, and said, "The God before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked, The God who has been my shepherd all my life to this day, 16The angel who has redeemed me from all evil, Bless the lads; And may my name live on in them, And the names of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; And may they grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth."…

I Know this is HARD for Trinitarians to believe. but...

Angels and Lord Jesus are CREATED beings...and it is up to the LORD GOD (The Father Only) how much authority He gives them....Psalm 2:7 , 45:6, Hebrews 1:8 ...Abba Father changes NOT.

Phil. 2:8.....Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by [BECOMING OBEDIENT TO THE POINT OF DEATH], even death on a cross. 9 For this reason also, GOD THE FATHER......highly exalted Him, and BESTOWED (God =Father Bestowed) on Him the name which is above every name, 10so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,…

It DOES *NOT* SAY LORD JESUS HUMBLED HIMSELF, BY SELF INCARNATING.....from pre-existing god to "God the Son"....that is presumption....which I warn you is not what Abba Father wants.....according to Matt. 11:27........

and then did Messiah Exalt HIMSELF.....as "GOD the SON A Co-Equal Person Of A Trinity?" Clearly NOT!

HIS EXALTATION IS FROM WHO?.......ABBA FATHER....(WHO IS GREATER THAN LORD JESUS) John 14:28.....AND IS THE GOD OF LORD JESUS.....John 20:17

Abba Father doesn't want us guessing that the "Angel Of the Lord" is a pre-existing god...that Abba Father hid and DID NOT DISCLOSE as MY SON THAT I WILL INCARNATE IN 3 BC.

The stumbling block is that so many CANNOT Believe that LORD Jesus Was Created by the Word OF GOD the Father (that is how He creates Everything...Genesis 1, John 1)...to BE the Word of Abba Father incarnate.... WHO ...can receive worship just as Abba Father does

After all they are together NOW on the SAME THRONE...EVERYTHING, including PRAYER that we do toward Abba Father we are doing THROUGH the Lord Jesus our High Priest......and EVERYTHING that we do Toward Lord Jesus....is DIRECTLY toward Abba Father.....

They Are ONE.....no trinity necessary.

Ask a 5 year old.....anything OF God...is NOT GOD.....

This refutes the unnecessary , cobbled together, and eternally questionable inferences of the "trinity".

Unitary Monotheists Worship Our Father When We Worship Our Lord Jesus

A Unitary Monotheist Christian worships God the Father through the worship of His Son....John 5:23, John 10:30, John 20:28....just as Abraham worshiped LORD GOD through his angels...

Gen.18:2 When he lifted up his eyes and looked, behold, three men were standing opposite him; and when he saw them, he ran from the tent door to meet them and bowed himself to the earth, 3and said, "My lord, if now I have found favor in your sight, please do not pass your servant by. 4"Please let a little water be brought and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree;

It doesn't mean that Lord Messiah Jesus Is God, but He is God's Son made to be exalted with all the authority and power of God; ruling as God (Hebrews 1:8)...as it pleased the Father who is the Only True God (John 17:3)

...Nor were the angels of the Lord in Genesis....God either....

Anything OF God is ...Clearly NOT God Himself.

That is just common sense.

The Clear Unitary Monotheism Of: 1Tim 2:5, Mark12:29, and John 17:3

Dear Trinitarian brethren:

Are 99% of the Jews wrong about Abba Father?

They believe that the One and Only True God is The Father Only and Only The Father is the One and Only True God Deut. 6:4....and so do I and millions of other Christians.

What about 1 Tim. 2:4, 5.?....are these verses not enough evidence to consider Unitary Monotheist Christians as true brethren in Lord Messiah Jesus?

1 Tim 2:4..[God]..who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5) For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,

The One True GOD is CLEARLY saying here that HE WANTS THE WHOLE WORLD TO KNOW that...

Jesus Christ is NOT - (GOD)...... BUT is HIS MEDIATOR between God and Men...and that CHRIST JESUS IS A MAN (The Son Of Man and The Son of God) !

Mark12:28 One of the scribes came and heard them arguing, and recognizing that He had answered them well, asked Him, "What commandment is the foremost of all?" 29Jesus answered, "The foremost is, 'HEAR, O ISRAEL! THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE LORD; 30AND YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH.'…

This is Our God CLEARLY speaking that He Alone is LORD GOD...through His Son, the Man, Lord Messiah Jesus!

 John17:3 "This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.

 Here we AGAIN see our God through the mouth of Of Our Lord Jesus...CLEARLY making a distinction between Himself (the ONE..and  Only True God)...and.......... His Son, the Man, and exalted Lord Messiah Jesus...

The evidence is clear and not refutable....throughout ALL scripture.

The only way one can see the traditional "Trinity" in Scripture, would be to read the Scripture with that preconceived image in mind; and not thoroughly studying the Greek Texts. For about twenty years, I accepted this mysterious doctrine; under duress from those who falsely elevate their belief in the "Trinity" and claim that its acceptance is necessary for one's salvation to God in the Lord Messiah Jesus.

If we are wrong...show us how....I will accept sincere questions from anyone.

And please stop persecuting us....with your claims that "we don't know the Truth" and "we are not saved".....

Last time I checked ......1)  Currently, humans on the earth were not put in a place to judge these things righteously

2) The trinity doctrine was never ministered by the Lord or His apostles as  a means test of "salvation"....John 3:16...Acts 2:38....and the whole book of Acts.

I have provided a few links to various ministries that are apologists, teachers, and Biblical scholars for Christian monotheism at the top; just under the Blog description.

I Am Exposing: The Overt But Hidden Room Rental Discrimination in Jackson County, Oregon

Many disabled room-renters are not encouraged with the increasingly common and overt discrimination we have received while looking for rooms to rent in Jackson County, Oregon.

This category of discrimination falls under "lifestyle".

What I mean by "lifestyle," is not sexual preference; but a discrimination against a retired and disabled room renter, who chooses to stay at home most of the time.

Over the last two years, here in Ashland/Talent/ Medford, so many people that are renting rooms, are making a bizarre and selfish DEMAND that the renter must be gone for 8 hours of the day; or 40 hours of the week!

As one of the many disabled/semi-retired persons, who live on a fixed income; we cannot live up to the fickle whims of an inconsiderate person with unreasonable demands. Why shouldn't I and many others like me have the freedom to live as we are? Why shouldn't our individual lifestyles be one hundred percent accepted? There is no good answer to that question, in my humble opinion.

I am and have been applying for the few rooms that are available on Craigslist; that are already extremely limited, due to:

1) currently there is a low vacancy rate of just 1% in Jackson county...which adds to the homeless population.
2) people that rent out rooms are gouging the poor for rentals of rooms; asking for $525 - $750...NOT including utilities....for a basic room..(HELLO?...we are RENTING the room; not BUYING it !)
3) gender discrimination...because I am not a female...only 40% of the ads are open to me as a male.
4) noisy locations (right on a busy highway or close to one), screaming kids, marijuana indulgences , excessive drinking, parties, and other general rudeness.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: all those who are renting rooms...please consider not taking advantage of the poor. There is no reason that rents should be more than 10% higher than they were four years ago; except for greed.

A renter of a room should be able to come and go as they please, as long as they are respectful of the noise, privacy, and security rules of the home.

I have been renting rooms all over the country (from New York to Hawaii) for the last 20 years, and Oregon is the ONLY PLACE where this weird discrimination takes place...

Please reconsider this offensive attitude toward the salt of the earth that you are persecuting...purely for momentary financial gain...

but at what cost?.....everyone must ask that question of themselves....

DO THE RIGHT THING...and STOP DISCRIMINATING...AGAINST DISABLED / RETIRED ROOM RENTERS.

Greetings In Peace : [*TWIMC] - Will You Repent - To The ONE AND ONLY God - And Stop Your Bloodshed?

A letter to [*TWIMC] : Greetings In Peace: *To Whom It May Concern:

FROM:  The global, yet united; gathered, but scattered peoples of the Assembly of The One And Only God...
__FROM: Those of us, who are called by the God of Abraham, who is Our One and Only God.
___FROM: Those who are called to be children and servants of the same God of The Resurrected, Ascended, and Exalted Lord Jesus Christ of Judah of Israel; who now Lives and Rules as God (granted to Him by His God and Our God).
____FROM: Those who are being saved by The Lord God of Abraham, Issac, and Israel.....and by our Messiah Lord Jesus who Lives, seated at the right hand of God Our Father's Throne in Heaven; since He fulfilled that which was written of Him and of His sacrificial torture and death, His burial and His bodily Resurrection from the tomb; For the Will and Purposes of Almighty God For His Son and all that are called by His Name; who still is fulfilling ...and will yet fulfill; ALL that the prophets of Our One God have spoken and written for His people through the millennia.

Please ask the One God, Our Father, to acknowledge your misery in the Pride and Ignorance (that our God hates) that has lead to your deception about what is the righteousness of Our One God.

Is it torture and mayhem and bloodshed of "infidels" that lead us to attain righteousness in our God?...

...Or are you merely hidden from the Truth revealed in the Man called Messiah Jesus, The Lamb of God, who took onto Himself...the humiliation, torture, curses, and death...unjustly...for ALL mankind, even when we were enemies of His God and Father....so that we all might be reconciled to our one True God and all who believe in Christ Jesus in Truth and in His Resurrection and repent and obey His Gospel of the Kingdom Of God; in order to receive the Life through Christ Jesus for the ages to come..aka "eternal  Life".

As it is written....Proverbs 8:13...."The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way, and the perverted mouth, I hate.

And Proverbs 1:7...."The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction."
 It is mainly [TWIMC]'s False Idols of Pride and Willful Ignorance that inspire you to warmonger and murder the innocent....and cause grief for our God and His people everywhere.

CLEARLY...when so-called  "ATHEISTS", who do not know Our God, can see that what [TWIMC ] is  doing is EVIL...then a reasonable person would PAUSE...and CONSIDER....whether... [TWIMC] is not deceived by Satan.....the god of this world...and doing his evil.

You DISGRACE the human race....by your disregard for HUMAN LIFE...and your VIDEOS that

Please ask Our God,,,,for the eyes to CLEARLY see....that your murder and destruction as NOT the WAY....and NOT the Life....that OUR father Abraham was looking for....

As it is written by one of Abraham's descendants in Holy Scripture :

Hebrews11:8 By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed by going out to a place which he was to receive for an inheritance; and he went out, not knowing where he was going. 9By faith he lived as an alien in the land of promise, as in a foreign land, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, fellow heirs of the same promise...

 [*TWIMC], haven't your people suffered enough already?

 You know that Almighty God, the True One of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob....will not listen to the prayers of murderers....so I beg you to repent and re-think your actions; as your compliance with the laws of Our God have an affect on the whole world...for good or for evil. You decide which one of those choices your actions represent.

Please consider the holy thought that violence bloodshed DOES no bring about righteousness...as it is  written in God's holy Scripture.

_James1:19 This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; 20for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God. 21Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls.…

Here is what you and everyone in the world must do :

The Conversion of the Jailer
_Acts16:29 And he called for lights and rushed in, and trembling with fear he fell down before Paul and Silas, 30and after he brought them out, he said, 

"Sirs, what must I do to be saved?"

  31They said, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household."…

This is your loving warning to repent and obey the Gospel Of the Kingdom of  The One And Only God...and His One And Only Son, Messiah Jesus....

Please RSVP via this blog.

I will talk to you....I am not afraid...for the Lord God Of Israel is with me....

Review Of: Post-Carter* Conservatism In The U.S. - In One Sentence !

"Reagan* began the Economic AIDS of overzealous deregulation, government-phobic sentiment, and the "Greed and low taxes are good for business" meme, that started to kick in: post-Clinton* until now; in 2016...there is no U.S. middle class stability to speak of."
.....JC Goodman

* U.S. President Jimmy Carter*  1977 - 1981
* U.S. President Ronald Reagan* 1981 - 1989
* U.S. President Bill Clinton* 1993 - 2001

*The Trinity Doctrine Was Cobbled Together and Exalted By Men

*The Trinity doctrine was cobbled together and was established, circa 325 AD. by men. The history of Its cobbling is well documented in the annals of the history of the Christian Church. The Trinity continues to be a doctrine exalted by many to a status of "being necessary for Salvation". This view is troubling. It has led to unjust persecution of Unitary Monotheist Christians and is it Biblical?

One can easily and mistakenly take passages out of the Bible...and make a man-made doctrine (like the Trinity)...out of Scripture. But, this method of private interpretation is not suitable for God's people....2 Peter 1:20,21

Is the Lord Jesus a "Trinity" ? , because He said in John 14:6:

Jesus said to him, "I am the [way], and the [truth], and the [life]; no one comes to the Father but through Me."
Is this how we are to exegete Scripture?
So, in the same way; nether is there a tripersonal Trinity (as defined here: "One What and three Who's").....http://www.reasons.org/articles/thinking-about-the-trinity-one-what-and-three-whos
....just because there is found in Scripture: [God, who is the Father] of [the Son Of God...the Lord Jesus] and [One holy Spirit of God] ....but, does their existence = One Trinity?

Who (ACTUALLY), according to Scripture; are God (the Father), God's Mediator and Only Begotten Son, who is a Man (Lord Jesus) and the holy Spirit of God, that ALL of God's people have a measured share in receiving.... as it is written..

1Tim. 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,

1Cor.15:28 When all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also will be subjected to the One who subjected all things to Him, [so that God may be ALL IN ALL.]

What part of: God (the Father) subjected - [All Power and Authority to Lord Jesus] - so that God (the Father) may be - [ALL IN ALL] - through the holy Agency and holy Mediation of the Way, the Truth, and the Life...the Lord Messiah Jesus.....can't most of us understand?

Hmmm? No "Trinity" in those verses....and no " One What and Three Who's" silliness either...

The man-made doctrine is unnecessary...and it is like religiously trying to make water wetter...and ending up with something undrinkable....and (unthinkable).

* I and many other Unitary Monotheists, have to confess that we could be wrong about the Trinity. We do make these statements by faith in Messiah Jesus and His Creed. (Mark 12:28 - 30, John 17:3) and through continual prayer and earnest seeking of the Truth. Many have studied the Scriptures for many years before coming to this conclusion. For me, it has been 38 years (in the wilderness).

JC Goodman's Quote For The Day

"When hopelessness and lawlessness reigns...political 'conservatism' should remain dead, but policies for the 'common welfare' should come alive and kicking" ...JC Goodman

Please VOTE And CAST AN EDUCATED VOTE.....PLEASE !!!

We hope that educated people come to KNOW that "Democratic Socialism", like the U.S. had during three terms of FDR ...and following, is America's best hope for future stability. It was highly regarded as just "normal" US government policy up until President Reagan's train wreck started..(1981 - 1989).

His administration, with its overly zealous deregulation and government-phobia, began to unwind all the progress (high home ownership, stable-generous paying-union-backed jobs, a social safety net, and a living minimum wage); and this American ideal of economic justice was gradually realized over the vast majority of the country (1934 -1981)...

Enlightened people, especially America's highly educated young (16 - 28), understand that "Democratic Socialism"...is NOTHING MORE than thoroughly regulated Capitalism....for the common good of the WHOLE Country.

The founding contributors of the US Constitution framed "Democratic Socialism" into the very text of the document...that is why IT WORKED SO WELL...1934 -1981. Not very many educated people realize that the roots of American "Socialism"... reach way back to 1635; with the founding of America's first public school...and the very words: "COMMON" and "FOR THE GENERAL WELFARE" were woven into the framework of the US Constitution itself..

And we still have ...Public schools, Public libraries, Federal Highways, Firefighters, National Parks, Medicare, Social Security....etc.

My former US Congressman and current Senator and Presidential hopeful : Bernie Sanders, if nothing else, has given 'Democratic Socialism' a clean name after the Red Scare of the 1950s made it equal to 'Communism/Gulags/Stalin'.

Yes, thankfully many are educated enough to see through the demagoguery of fear...continually utilized by the radical right! In the 1950's....almost half of the US population (Women) were still only high school grads...... 

Obviously, there was some deliberate and concerted effort to down play the revealing facts regarding the historical documentation and a traceable US heritage of evolving "Democratic Socialism" in high school civics and universities of that era. 

The goal was to suppress the knowledge of the INCREDIBLE SUCCESS of FDR's "Democratic Socialism" and its unparalleled three term wave, that was built on the former founding "Socialists" that prevailed since 1635 (the founding of America's first public school) and most of FDR's successors.

As a servant of Messiah Jesus, I certainly see the parallel in those famous words of the US document to that God given and gracious attitude of the first century Jewish converts to Messiah Jesus and the radical good it had on them and their community....as it is written:

Acts 2:44 And all those who had believed were together and had all things in common; 45and they began selling their property and possessions and were sharing them with all, as anyone might have need.…

NOW HEAR THIS:  Given the actual history of US Government 1934 -181...the so called "Conservatives"; cannot claim the faux patriotism of adhering to the US Constitution as THEIR divisive mantra for their intended and misguided "transformational" ends.

But, if you want to be a true radical, conservative, partisan...you are basically Anti-American...and Anti-US Constitution. It is therefore settled, that these adherents to that propaganda are brainwashed into merely a delusion of true "patriotism".

Heil...Trump?

Very scary....

Democratic Socialism....Why Has It Been Demonized By The Religious Right?

Because this year is a Presidential election year in America, I will have to set the record straight about the erroneous characterizing and demonizing of "Democratic Socialism"...by the religious right in the U.S.

As right-wing political hacks dredge up their daily scare memes and divisive "talking points"; they are viewed by the listening public as political gurus; as they each divine their self-exalted calling. Day after day, they spin their biased political opinions into patently false dichotomies of "us vs them" (Because fear and outrage sell during times of national woes).

This behavior is no less than baiting the closed-minded devotees of partisan talk radio and TV; on the plethora of our nation's corporate media air waves. What's it all about Rush-ie?...Annie?...Billo?

The more open-minded among Americans; especially the highly educated, 16 - 28 years of age; have already conceded that this brand of "Socialism" to be more akin to the former United States in this era: post-1934 and pre-1981 America; (with its highly progressive income taxes, its fair and just offering to U.S. workers a "living" minimum wage, Social Security, and Medicare).

That era typifies what "Democratic Socialism" looked like in those former years; where the country as a whole experienced the satisfaction of a way more "United" States of America. Finally, our country is being offered this rational alternative to the broken, gridlocked and anti-progressive status quo that has left Washington in a state of desolation of soul.

The message as heralded and defined by the current candidate for President; Bernie Sanders makes his uncompromising "Socialist" intentions known as a positive and hopeful return to post-1934 and pre-1981 American economic policy. But, what Senator Sanders intends, isn't even close to the brand of iron clad "State Socialism" observed in the former USSR.

First, I want to say (something that few can say, because Vermont is such a small State) that I lived in Vermont from 2001 to 2003. I made my living as a barber-stylist in Essex Junction, VT. This is a State that is mostly rural and ultra-conservative politically....(trust your barber to know these things from our many interactions with the public; as we cut and style your hair). This was one of the few shops in the county and surrounding counties, so I met lots of men and some women from a 40 mile radius.

The political phenomenon of Vermont has played out; mainly because of Burlington, VT and the UVM both in Chittenden County, comes into play because of the more concentrated populace of students, younger people, as well as progressive and liberal thinkers. This county is also unique in that : it is populated by roughly 25% of the State's population!

So, now we can see that Vermont is like a political creme-filled doughnut; Chittenden county is heavily liberal (the creme) and the rest of the State is very rural (farmers, hunters, and retired persons) and ultra-Conservative....like the owner of the barber shop where I worked. I had to listen to him spout his politics all day.....but, he could....he was the owner; and most of the clientele were of the same political
persuasion....(preaching to the choir).

Well, looking back I would have to say that Bernie Sanders, as my representative in Congress, the one and only "Independent", who represented the working people did the best job of representing my values that I had ever experienced; in all of my prior 24 years as a voter. I saw him marching alone as our representative in the yearly Essex Junction Memorial Day Parade in 2002 as it passed by our barber shop on Pearl St.

I haven't actually met Bernie, yet. But, I would certainly like to have a good chat with him over a glass of wine or a cup of coffee!

I could share some of my political proposals...like my solution to keep artificial inflation of housing costs down ...with a Federal, Progressive Real Estate Tax for home owners and the elimination of the tax break for the well-to-do that can afford to purchase a home. I would also give him some messaging that would spice up his platform. Well, we can dream, cant we?

There are two economic political benefits that I really appreciated about Vermont and its lower taxes for renters (understand that only those who CANNOT AFFORD to buy a home or homes have to rent) and its offer of Medicare healthcare benefits to lower income folks. I have to say that the rent rebate from the State of Vermont was very generous....as it should be....because remember...WE ARE RENTING....NOT BUYING THAT APARTMENT...SO STOP GOUGING THE POORER OF US !!!!

So, why has the religious right feverishly worked to cast aspersions on this message of economic fairness towards the working people and the non-existent US middle class? Some religious folk have even gone so far as to quote Scripture against such an organic movement that has already had its momentous debut in the US, beginning with the successful three term Presidency of FDR.

Yes, my comrades, Social Security (even has the word "Social" in it) and the Minimum Wage are "Socialist" schemes...to make life better for the country as a whole. Public Schools (first started by U.S."Socialists" in 1635), and Medicare are just more of the same "Socialist" plots to educate people regardless of economic status and provide an affordable way for Senior Citizens to be healthier, when they are not wealthier.

In conclusion, all the evidence and clear-headed thinking shows that the opposition to "Democratic Socialism" is simply steeped in a withering denial of facts; and an astonishing and willful ignorance of post-1934 and pre-1981 U.S. history. All the idols of the unbridled love of money, prestige and power are hidden in the self-exalted image of "Corporate Success"; currently on a scale of madness, uncharted chaos and national disgrace.

USA vs The Assembled States Of America....Which Is A More Accurate Apellation?

Nations, just like people have Names and Titles....In the case of the USA....this is how I understand it.

Her Name is called America, and her Title is the [United States] of America. But, educated and discerning people, who are not blinded by nationalistic zeal...can clearly see that America has not lived up to the all important word...."United"; in her current uber-divided condition.

She is divided, through and through...as I have demonstrated in "The New Pledge For America". I and others with like minds, pray for a True Allegiance to the Only True God and Our Lord Messiah Jesus for the good of America and to help America reform and revert to Its **pre-1960 unity....and her positive influence and contribution to the world.

This new "Pledge" is way more humble, honest, and certainly, no less than: a prophetic call to a divided nation, in which, huge parts of her continually make lofty and uber-nationalistic claims. (like, America allegedly having delivered to the world THE ONLY nation with a solid "Christian Founding" and the ever popular, but hollow...."The Greatest Country Ever In The World" as discussed here: (and are we "united" at all in that debatable, and proud notion?)...

just like the current message STILL is from the prophets of the Lord: Repent and Obey the Gospel Of The Kingdom Of God Through Jesus Christ The Lord.

Sometime between 2000 - 2004, *I wrote this pledge..and (I have amended it over the years) and finally posted it here:

The New Pledge For America

I Pledge
To not be indifferent to
The Divided State of America
And to the greedy, corporate Plutocracy
For which this nation has fallen

The disunited racial, lingual, ethical,
Multinational, and multi-level; economic aggregation

Rotting progressively
In vanity, pride, and cultural decay
Which values profit and self-interests
Far above people and community

With liberty and justice drowning
Amidst its rising tides of
Hate, murder, discord, and poverty

Openly negotiable
For the hallowed "market price"

*JC Goodman

Matthew 24:12  "Because lawlessness is increased, most people's love will grow cold".

* JC Goodman is my pen name

Therefore understanding, that both people and nations are called: not by the letters of an inapt title...but by HOW THEY ACTUALLY BEHAVE and the fruit that they produce; both individually, as people and collectively, as a nation.

Because of the ongoing and current ***post-1960 perpetual state of an extremely divided State of America;  me and (and many who think like me); long for her return to the former **pre-1960 title of "The [United States]...

Sadly, we have not been able to address America as The "United" States without cringing....although we ABSOLUTELY LOVE HER and STAND BY HER with the appropriate commitment required of a Citizen of Her....and as ambassadors for Our Lord Messiah Jesus. These are the solemn and virtuous understandings which I and many others are blessed to be able to confidently avow.

For, we are NOT here ... to tear America down....but to repudiate her false and self-exalted PRIDE; to take It down a few pegs...BECAUSE WE LOVE HER......and want the best for her and all who call this land "Home".

I think that Michael Moore would agree with me on this....as I do not know him...but I understand what he is trying to do. Like me, he and many others want to help in making this place, called America reform into "A MORE PERFECT UNION" ( from the famous U.S. Constitution preamble)...so how can we be any MORE "American"? Tell us!

Because My First Allegiance is to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ ...that I have pledged to Give My Life For and Die for Him If I am Called to....

So, the new, apt and humble title for the USA is merely: The Assembled States of America or ASA.

And when there is a return and a restoration to **pre-1960-"United"-States-style unity again in the future, if and when America repents.....I and many others will gladly call her the United States of America....without cringing...

That said....I hereby tell you that I will not seek an election to any government office that requires me to to alter the place that Allegiance to my LORD would be compromised for any position, man on earth, or country on earth.

Give me Liberty...or Give me...The Gospel of the Kingdom Of God through Jesus Christ The Lord...of whom I am a servant and a preacher.

** before 1960, the US was not perfect; but access to "the American dream" was very much alive, but Institutional Racism was still a gaping problem...and poverty in the US was nearly monolithic among the people descended from those who were enslaved here.

***after 1960....we see a major paradigm shift. We see the US, and especially younger people who got fooled into becoming self-focused and elevating what divides us from one another (race, age, class, status, language and national heritage)...rather than what unites us a country.

...and I am a child of this great divide...for I was born in 1960 !!!

Who Is The Lord of Our Bodies?

Greetings to the Family members of the Body of Christ:

We see in Scripture, a loving Father who wills that we all come to know Him and Our Lord Jesus Christ. By obeying the commandments of Our Lord, we will certainly be transformed into greater knowledge and faith and hope and love in Him.

Our Lord told us this Truth for our instruction in righteousness:
 Mark 12:28 One of the scribes came and heard them arguing, and recognizing that He had answered them well, asked Him, "What commandment is the foremost of all?" 29Jesus answered, "The foremost is, 'HEAR, O ISRAEL! THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE LORD; 30AND YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH.'…

Lately, I have received a greater understanding of how our Lord Jesus makes us able and willing (those who have received the promised holy Spirit of Christ _Romans_8:9), helping us to obey all His commandments in fully comitted love to Our Father, His people, and those in the world.

Today I want to focus on this plea from Our Father....written by our Apostle Paul...
Romans 12:1 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.…

Notice that "your bodies"  above, have all the components of human will that are separated in the Lord's foremost commandment. Our bodies contain : 1) our hearts 2) our souls 3) our minds 4) our strength.

And in these verses we clearly see that Our Father is teaching His children how to love like Him...namely  ALL. He has given, is giving and will give us All of Him.....and we know that God is Love....__1 John 4:16.

So, let us follow the Lord Jesus...and give Him our All, knowing that we can only do this through Him, by His Spirit which we have received...by obedience to Him.

1_Cor. 6:13 Food is for the stomach and the stomach is for food, but God will do away with both of them. Yet the body is not for immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord is for the body.

So, we can see how we can boldly say that Our Lord Jesus...is Lord of All....as well as Lord of All our individual bodies....with All our human components of our wills....desiring to continually worship Him and please Our Father in Heaven.....our spiritual service of worship.

As It is written:  _John 4:23  "But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. 24"God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."

Let us be doers of His Word....not just hearers only..... by the Grace of Our God and Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ....Amen.

The New, Misguided, Religious Inquistion...Christian Persecution From Self Exalted And Deceived Leadership Inside The Assemblies Of God's People

I am here today...to expose a dark, secretive, and mild, but SERIOUS form of Christian Persecution from Christian leadership that has crossed my very path and my very life. These unsettling and upsetting scenes have occurred several times in the last 20+ years.

 But, not until last Sunday, Feb 28 2016, at my regular, local variety of You-Must-Be-Trinitarian--Repent-Or-You-Will-not be saved local assembly did I really know that the abuse I received from this associate pastor was absolutely wrong and he had crossed a line to persecution and prejudice against me and Our Lord also.

Thankfully, I am not 17 any more, or I would have thought this abuse was deserved and I could then have doubted my salvation based on the Grace Of God and my faith in Jesus Christ Our Savior Alone and the power of His Resurrection from the dead by our God and Father.....but I was closer to the Kingdom of God than I knew...

..And the next day...I did receive His new birth.....a 55 year old that loves our God.....became a child and entered Our God's Kingdom through the Way, The Truth and The Life, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ....on Feb. 29, 2016.

This must be CLEAR, that my purpose here is NOT TO CONDEMN, for these offenses are forgivable....because,  those who are deceived, they "know not what they are doing". They think they are doing God's will, as did Saul of Tarsus, before his conversion. He had no idea...and either do the hypocrites that are exposed in this post...that they are actually persecuting Jesus Christ Himself...for we are members of His body! This Is serious.

The sin of persecution is easily forgivable for the sheep that are receiving the persecution; if we have learned to follow and obey our Lord's command to give unconditional forgiveness through our faith in Jesus Christ. Because we all had our moments "in the flesh", while we were yet ignorant.

It is therefore more than just to bring the darkness of ignorance, an unbridled attitude of hypocrisy and self-honoring entitlement of status to light. We must expose this inapt aggrandizement of a fallible man-made doctrine which actually adds a bogus step to those seeking Salvation in Jesus Christ....Hmmm?

Does that sound like the Gospel accounts are coming to life....seeing how many thousands of Christians are Biblical Unitarian minded and the millions of Jewish Unitarians there are.

Well...keep reading....you ain't seen nothing yet!

 I also need to wash away the haze and focus on the Only solution to all these matters that Jesus Christ came to fulfill in his people who continue in His Word. The most important declaration is what Lord Jesus reveals here: Mark 12:29-31.

That said...this a very serious problem for those leaders who continually persecute and badger God's people....yet remain self-righteous and unrepentant themselves...not having the slightest clue how much stress and harm that persecution can inflict.

Here is another reason why this persecution I have received is rather troubling. I am a Christian with a new nature (2Cor 5:17), who is known in my community as a Christian and I have lived as a Christian in Ashland, OR since Oct. 2011.

The first local assembly I went to ...on the very first time visit to their Sunday morning Bible study. I expressed a mere doubt about the  controversy over the LITERAL, PERSONAL "pre-existence" of Jesus Christ ....before the world began....as opposed to what I have always held to from the actual historical account in Matthew and other very familiar and plain texts that reveal Our God and Father as One who foreordains existence..ALONE....

Well, that is all it took...even though I was new....I was pounced on and corrected as if my very Salvation was at stake. I was confused...Hmmm?

Is it an unshaken faith and baptism into Lord Jesus Christ, who Our Father draws us to by His Power through His Gospel, and saves us Himself, through the Way, Life, Truth, Death, Burial, and Resurrection.... in the Name of The Only Firstborn Son of God, whom God anointed and approved as Messiah and Saviour ; that He gave to the world and highly exalted as Lord, who ascended to share Our God's throne in all power and authority?

  ...or is it the unshakable faith in a dubious and cobbled together, falsely inferred doctrinal conclusion that we are to put our faith In?

A year later, the pastor of that assembly confessed that he believed I committed blasphemy for my doubt over a clearly Biblical non-essential understanding...as I told him that I wasn't struggling with his doctrine any more because I was eager to be meek and have unity...so I eventually coalesced and accepted the "mystery".........but that was three years ago! A lot can happen in three years of time!

Moving on up to the current time, I can sum up the last three years as filled with the most extremely difficult trials in my life so far, new opportunities, making close Christian family connections....all in the midst of becoming disabled. After three years of vacillation, sporadic spiritual dry spells, doubts and temptations...my faith, hope, and love was low, I was going through the motions and bearing little fruit.

So, then I cried out to Our God and Lord with my troubles and fears...and He heard me. I was tired of reaping what I was sowing....as it is written...…

James 1:5 But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. 7For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord,…

A few weeks ago I was prompted to examine myself to see if I was in the faith. This was the best decision I had made. I spent hours praying and listening to really well done youtube debates and reading, and bible Study from the Greek Text.

I revisited every controversial doctrine that bothered me or held any doubt. If I couldn't see it clearly...Over what seemed like a whole week I was would keep on seeking, asking , and knocking.....our father and Lord for help...and finally after understanding John 1:1 in a way that I believe is correct, I became convinced of a Biblical Unitarian understanding of the Godhead with the help of my fellow workers in the Lord.

The view I hold that I believe is known to many as Biblical Unitarianism, and by others "Christian Monotheism". If you know a Jewish person...just ask them if they are Trinitarian.....well, neither was Jesus Christ, and He he agreed with the creed of Israel and a scribe confirmed it it here:

Matt. 10:28 One of the scribes came and heard them arguing, and recognizing that He had answered them well, asked Him, "What commandment is the foremost of all?" 29Jesus answered, "The foremost is, 'HEAR, O ISRAEL! THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE LORD;....32The scribe said to Him, "Right, Teacher; You have truly stated that HE IS ONE, AND THERE IS NO ONE ELSE BESIDES HIM;…

I think the Wise will choose to believe what the Lord Jesus says concerning how many persons His God and Father... Jesus worships ONE as Hid God and Father...and I choose to follow Him.

Because ....here I go...THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW...that "Jesus Was Not A Trinitarian". You can always read the book with the same by 
The details are best stated and explained in great detail on this well furnished and very informativewebsite...and this particular division of saved or not saved....here: http://www.biblicalunitarian.com/do-you-have-to-believe-in-the-trinity-to-be-saved

If I ask the question below to Christian leadership in another church...because I was quenched and aggressively badgered and needed to find a SAFE place....(could you ever believe that an assembly of God would not always be a safe place to go?....a place of refuge?)

Well, I am here today to sound the warning....

Those wolves in sheep's clothing are hidden. Their smiling faces and warm greetings on the outside....hide the pride and deception that is really going on inside many of these respectable and mild- mannered appearing religious leaders.

So, in my search for a safe assembly in the country in rural Southern Oregon...where people are nice.....I finally send them an email. I know them from a Trinitarian teaching ministry that airs on our local Christian radio and TV station. Judging from their Oh-so-friendly and welcoming website...ask the same humble question and I get the same foul and prejudiced attitude in my replies. Amazing?

These are leaders and supposed to be servants....not entitled Pharisees......hindering those who are entering the Lord's Kingdom that will come.....hopefully soon.

LOL, here I go again, but  THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW...that this appalling hypocrisy and Ignorance in Christian leadership over assemblies of God's people....must be JUST THE TIP of the proverbial frigid iceberg. This raises many questions...and I hope this account is clear....If not the reader can always contact me directly by email...jcgood1984@outlook.com

It is time for True Christians to stand against hypocrisy in Christian assembly leadership that are to deceived to think they are entitled to treat those who are just about to enter God's Kingdom...with a bizarre, ungodly wolf-like and disrespectful display of ignorance, divisiveness and persecution...to a little, meek sheep...

Just wanting to inquire this :

I said, "I could be wrong, but If I  differ with you on the Traditional Trinitarian doctrine after studying it and living it for many years, will you still receive me as a brother," ....I am  55 years old, by the way.

News Flash..

Last Sunday...at my local assembly... I experienced this wolf-like badgering and contempt for the Holy Spirit at the hands of a Christian Associate Pastor. I was stunned, for surely he new I was near the Kingdom of God...right? One would think so, but such is the nature of false doctrine and its deception.

I even had testified to this person for a whole hour witnessing my staunch and unmovable Faith in Jesus Christ and His eternal Sacrifice for our sins and my love for Our Father. I  shared my faith in Our God's promise to His chosen ones : the New birth as sons of God and  the Holy Spirit to abide in us and seal us into his eternal Kingdom on Earth ....and my total embrace of a willingness to serve him...considering what debauchery and deception our God pulled me out of as my Savior through Jesus Christ.

I was really close to being able to say this, and now  as of Feb. 29, 2016 I can  understand this word of God:

1 Cor. 12:3.....Therefore I inform you that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, "Jesus be cursed," and no one can say, "Jesus is Lord," except by the Holy Spirit.


That is why I was shocked when the associate pastor turned on me like a wolf in the public halls of the assembly as people were arriving for Sunday. Embarrassing me in the hall, disgracing Our Savior's name...badgering me and repeating....Who is Jesus? ...Who is Jesus? ...Who is Jesus?....LITERALLY, twelve aggressive times in a row!...not listening to my three word answer from heaven....Come and See.

I was backing away from him all the way down the back entrance hall and out the door in shock as I saw other people noticing the unusual, inapt, and disgraceful scene in a local assembly of God...Wow! I was stunned beyond belief....because I thought he knew both  the Lord and me......I had been fooled...all this time....why was that? I have left never to return.

If you read my blog posts over the days since Sunday, Feb.28 2016.....you may learn some things if the Lord wills.

ironically...these Trinitarian Pharisees laud themselves...that they are the only non-cult....(does that sound humble?) ...Remember what Lord Jesus said...."You will know if I have sent them by their fruit"

This Sunday morning was so extraordinary....although the last few times it happened ..it was not as hurtful, because they were strangers...and I had less knowledge of Truth.

Having my own brother with authority treat me like a dog and someone that did not even know God...as  moments before he said this to me....causing me such grief and stress that I became Ill for about 24 hours.

Will we obey Jesus in this....
 Matt. 1040 "He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me. 41"He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.…

Our Lord reveals perfectly...exactly what is Eternally at stake....in how we treat God's people.

With what I believe is an appropriate and godly response: a renewed zeal to preach the uncorrupted  Gospel Of Jesus Christ and His Kingdom everywhere God's people are....and to boldly love our deceived brethren in leadership and authority...and simply, humbly ASK them One humble question....

What Would Jesus Do?  If I humbly came up to Him and if was only doubting and wrestling with His doctrine after studying it and living it for over 30 years (as in my case) do you believe.....would The Lord of glory comfort me in a dove-like manner as one would a lost child.......or would he badger and taunt me in this manner?

The brethren who believe like I do....are commanded to be humble and peaceful...and I do not know any of my true Biblical Unitarian brothers that EVER would even think of doing a scene like this in a public place in an assembly of God.

My Testimony Of Receiving Jesus Christ To My Mother and Her Adult Children


I have great news....I was REALLY born again on Feb. 29, 2016...
I really, Truly am a new Creation of God, as it is written....

2 Corinthians 5:17....Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new Creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

so you have to crucify any bad memory of me...
Wait until you see the new me.......I hope you pray to Our Father....and believe this is true.
I now have a much better hope and I do have hope and now that I am REALLY born again......EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED.....except my body!

Do you know what this means...I will tell you this and make mother happy.....Now I can go back to your grown up daughters and other son....as "one raised from the dead"....and now I hold BOTH ARMS wide Open....with God's love..and not obligation...I am Truly, free indeed.

You can tell Max...Cathy, Heather, Margo...your Neighbors...anyone you know, your sister, my aunt....yes, even strangers...

I will receive All.....and God has made me a safe person..because I can do no harm to anyone any more
because the Holy Spirit of Christ which now lives in me is like a dove..gentle, calm.....

as it is written:

1 john 3:9....Those who have been born from God don't live sinful lives. What God has said lives in them, and they can't live sinful lives. They have been born from God.

and The Lord will help you....believe just like He did with Thomas.....notice how gentle the Spirit of Christ is in a difficult  interaction...

27Then He said to Thomas, "Reach here with your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand and put it into My side; and do not be unbelieving, but believing." 28Thomas answered and said to Him, "My Lord and my God!"…

It is OK to doubt....but don't resist the Holy Spirit ...which is a  dangerous sin.

Just look at my blog...and notice what I have written since Feb. 29, 2016....you will notice....is the ability to do this writing a gift from God for his hurting and weary people.....or not?

You can decide....


I love ...and I am waiting for you....when you believe that I am a GENUINE servant of Christ Our Lord....
Remember what Jesus said....Matt. 10:40

"He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me.

I receive you....do you receive me?

I wait for you....with open arms........

I want to honor my mother.....as long as she obeys Him....

Great News..this below is what I asked the Father to make me...a servant of God and His Son. We even have the same name!!!

James 1:1  James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ

Love and Peace from God and From His Son Jesus Christ.

John 17:3..."This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.

your NEW son.....James

 ps now I finally really love the name James and I will love myself as well as others...because He called me to be a servant of God and His Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ also.

James Carroll to Living on the Edge with Chip Ingram


I have a question after I qualify it with series of clarifying statements. There are some leaders in churches that cross a serious boundary.....when they do not receive those of us who are genuine, born again Brothers in Christ.... but yet have a clearer revelation of the REAL "trinity".

If you know a Jew ...you will understand and I hope WE ALL understand that Jesus Christ Still is a Man from the Tribe of Judah...because Our God has made Christ the Lord unique and unchanging. As Jesus confirmed with a Jewish Scribe...how we are to understand God Our Father.
Just ask any other of the millions, they will tell you that God the Father is ONE alone...One Person...
as Jesus clearly affirms....notice what he said to the scribe:

Mark 12:28 One of the scribes came and heard them arguing, and recognizing that He had answered them well, asked Him, "What commandment is the foremost of all?" 29Jesus answered, "The foremost is, 'HEAR, O ISRAEL! THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE LORD;
32The scribe said to Him, "Right, Teacher; You have truly stated that HE IS ONE, AND THERE IS NO ONE ELSE BESIDES HIM;…

The Jewish scribe and Jesus Himself ...Affirm that the Father is One Person.....we all have to decide....whether to believe what Jesus said ...or some cobbled together unBiblical doctrine of men called "the trinity."

I am going to go by what our Lord Jesus clearly said and Have faith in Him alone as my Teacher...then have faith in a dubious mysterious "trinity".

Yes there is a genuine "trinity"...but most who claim the predominant Trinitarian doctrine as absolute Truth, I believe have got the false one....because of its fruit.

I say this in love and humility, not to divide but to unite.
It is healthy and Biblical to examine if we are in the Faith of Jesus.

Don't take MY word for it...Check the Scripture in the Greek...for there are several errors in translations and if you read the Scripture through the wrong lens....you will think that you "see" the false trinity....but what does your heart and mind say?

My question is....would I be considered a brother in Christ even though I see God as the Unique Almighty Father only....I see His Son as Everlasting One and ONLY Fully Human Jesus Christ exalted by God...but not God the Father.... as ONLY those who JESUS WILLS to reveal the Father has this revelation been given. Matt.11:27.

....and the holy Spirit is not a Person, but God's Spirit from Our Father that He gave his son, and Through His Son.....we can receive the GIFT of the Holy Spirit from Christ...as HIS VERY SPIRIT.

Very easy to understand if you; 1) Check out the Greek translations....the word translated [He] can also be translated [It].....the way you should rightly parse this out as follows :

The words holy Spirit parsed into English from the Greek...is better stated and written as:
The One holy Spirit of God in Christ...this is the SAME SPIRIT..that we Inherit in Christ.....when we ask the Father for It...and The Father Thorough Jesus Christ pours It (the Holy Spirit) out according to God's will...Titus 3:6.

God the Father and His Son's One united, and shared Spirit is Holy...hence....  I am the Father are One. John 10:30...that is in fact revealed to mean : One in God's holy Spirit and in Truth, In Way, In Life, and In Word, and in Their united Will of God....

...in context...it is not a verse to be misinterpreted out of context...to support a traditional Trinitarian error.

...but NOW we that are His Children can be joint heirs with Jesus Christ and we have received the promise of the Father...as it is written in Ephesians..…12to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ would be to the praise of His glory. 13In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation-- having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God's own possession, to the praise of His glory.
Christ STILL shares Fully the Godhead bodily without measure yet still 100% MAN. Col 2:9, 1 Tim 2:5

Would I be received as a brother.. if I hold to the above? Or would I be persecuted...as I have been by false teacher ...who cross the line when they say with deception their OWN authority......"you are not Saved and do not know the Truth"
But that is OK...for I know that it is an honor to suffer for His sake and His Kingdom....and it is a blessing to be persecuted.

But, If I am a genuine minister of Christ......I think this should be a sobering message to the self-righteous....who hold up their faith in a dubious and mysterious doctrine ....that I used to accept since the mid 90's until Feb 29 2016...when I got born again...and became a new Creation in Christ.

Discern for yourself...with prayer I would encourage you....

Chip Ingram, I love your work, witness of your Faith, radio, ministry and although we differ on whether is ( which I have heard you confess)...Jesus as fully God and the Holy Spirit as a person...I receive you as a brother...and I am thankful for your ministry that has touched me any many.

Remember what Jesus said....Matt. 10:40

"He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me.

I receive you....do you receive me?

The Lord has called His own to unity...Let us grow up into Him in all unity.......and put away the divisions ...like those false doctrines that the Pharisees accused our Lord with....and I pray that you know the rest of His story.....Amen

Peace to the assemblies that Worship Our God in Spirit and Truth.

PS..I want to state that I AM NOT, ABSOLUTELY NOT.....CLAIMING...ANY of these Letters to PROMOTE MYSELF AS AN INFALLIBLE.....I could be wrong....

But, By The GRACE of GOD...this has been written by me BY MY Faith in Jesus Christ and the  new Creation in Christ....that Our God has made me..to Glorify HIS NAME....and the NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES   JESUS CHRIST!!!......to both the deceived and confused....to clarify..what our Lord desires ALL to see.....as Truth.....and to EDIFY and UNITE the WHOLE body of Christ....to whom I am a ONLY called as a servant...as another Brother BEFORE me who has the same name..JAMES.... has made evident.......and  crystal CLEAR...see....James 1:1

Think And Meditate On This Today....

God's Mercy to Us

3For we *[who are now disciples of Jesus Christ]  also once were foolish ourselves, disobedient, deceived, enslaved to various lusts and pleasures, spending our life in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another. 4But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, 5He saved us *[Even though WE WERE worshiping pleasure and paraded around as hedonistic homosexuals and deceived by Satan, driven by the lusts of the flesh and ENEMIES  of God], not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit,…Amen

* words in brackets are added by me....

Yes I am coming out today...as an Ex-Homosexual since March 2009...by the mercy, grace, love, and power of my Lord Jesus Christ....after 28 years in bondage to its deceitful addiction and unbridled lust and depravity. I have joined the few, the "out" and the ex-gay followers of Jesus Christ for the glory of God our Father amen.

But, we have come to understand that the Lord Jesus Christ Himself has chosen to reveal His Father to His disciples and give us His Holy Spirit...as the Father is seeking those who hunger to worship him in Spirit and Truth.

Therefore, we can Truly say that we have been born again and washed clean into God's Kingdom through Jesus Christ and He has made us free, because we have continued in His Word....We love and serve Him by keeping His greatest commandments and walk by His Spirit.  We are at peace with Our God and no longer deceived about Who is Jesus Christ and His Father. We have become new creations in Christ and we live for Him as servants in the blessed hope for the appearing of Our Lord who has He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of His beloved Son. Amen.

I can now freely say that I do love and can love anyone, by the Grace from our Lord. Since I know what it is like to be homosexual and deceived by false doctrine....and various lusts.

I have a unique compassion ate ministry to help those who are tired of the dead branches of hedonism....and want to find rest in Lord Jesus who is waiting for them all. He says to as many that will hear... "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Matt 11:28.

He and His God and Father have already demonstrated their amazing and super abundant love for the World....when He gave his life, and His Father gave his One and Only begotten son to die a cruel, unjust and torturous trial; where he was mocked, beaten, and spit at and agonizing and super humiliating and bloody death by a barbaric Crucifixion ....to cancel the judgment of all humanity's deserved punishment for the whole World

I can point them to my Savior and Lord Jesus Christ ...who is and was The One and Only 100% Man alone... and Mediator between God and man....

 He was made from Heaven by Our God and Father ...with the Fullest measure and expression of His Father who came in the flesh to Save all mankind....especially sinners and lost people...who come to their senses ( with the Father's help) and repent from their godless life which had no hope but a dangerous life to self and others leading to death.....never knowing the Truth.

to those who hear.... Repent and Obey the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His Kingdom.

You will be eternally rewarded for being found faithful His Word. Amen


Reformation..The World Is Waiting For It...But, Are Christians Ready?


 I am here to defend God's chosen people, and the body of Christ...His Assembly. I strongly believe there needs to be a Reformation. If Christians get hold and firmly believe any doctrine that distorts IN ANY WAY.....a true revelation of God the Father and the Son.... they are building their house on sand and greatly impairing and impeding doctrinal unity in the Body Of Christ.

I believe that Scripture is clear. If you don't have a True revelation of Jesus Christ, you may not know who the Father is!  That is why we are commanded to be humble about our knowledge.....BUT TO BE LOUD IN OUR ACTIONS....this is the essence of the warnings in the  message of James, a Servant of Jesus Christ. James 1:1.

God has promised that the Lord Jesus would ONLY reveal The Father to whom the Lord Jesus CHOOSES to. What does the Lord Jesus say?

Matthew 11:27 "All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.


 This is SO CRITICAL to ETERNAL LIFE as we see in John 17:3.

I sincerely believe that this means that there are people who have a distorted revelation of Jesus Christ and they may not even know the Father ..EVEN AFTER SEEING JESUS CHRIST IN THE FLESH as we see here.

John 14:6..Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. 7" *IF you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him." 8Philip said to Him, "Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us."…
9Jesus said to him, "Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, 'Show us the Father '?…

* carefully notice the "IF"and pause it is a BIG "IF" ...Therefore....if the Lord Jesus can DOUBT whether people really know Him or not...then, so can we....who follow Him.

He is the True and only righteous Judge appointed by Almighty God...so who are we to Judge? - see Matthew 7:1 in the light of its context.

I am NOT here to claim that I and others are absolutely right, only that...WE BELIEVE...that we are.
Which is what Christian Faith is all about.

We should be Humble servants of Christ, Not Pharisees and cult leaders. These can turn on you like ravenous wolves and/or cause a delay in spiritual growth or hinder the entrance of many into God's Eternal Kingdom by loading the heavy burdens of doctrinal error on the simple that many respected leaders insist...is THE ONLY WAY to be saved. Hmmm?...chapter and verse please? They exalt their doctrine up to a place where it ought not be, and many suffer for it.

This is one reason why the Lord instructed us to pray to Our Father....deliver us from EVIL....daily. There are MANY wolves out there over the internet and in leadership positions....posing as smiling and friendly, and even sincere Pastors.

If we are to obey Jesus Christ and seek His and the Father's Kingdom First and Their righteousness, we must defend the attacks against the integrity of Their Holy Word and Gospel.

Notice how I use the word "their". Once we move into maturity as Christians, the Lord Jesus prays that His body would become ONE... just as the Father and His Son are One; yet Not the Same Being, God and Fully Human Messiah in Perfect Unity according to the Word Of God. So, as a mature people in Christ we need not have to separate them.....UNLESS..we need to clarify their individual distinctions.

If I am talking or writing about General Motors...and you understand that it has two supreme and united leaders ....President and a Vice president. So, If I say or write the heads of General Motors...I do not need to separate the Vice President from the President.....UNLESS...I need to clarify their distinction in my communication.


I write this with humility.... When will  WE who sincerely call ourselves Christians....really unite and live like Jesus Christ commands us? The world is watching us....and the World NEEDS TO KNOW...that  OUR God is REAL....not by being puffed up with knowledge and wisdom....which are great.....but .."By OUR  Deep Love for His Body" and by our fruit of obeying His Gospel.

I believe that Scripture is clear that people will know that WE are His disciples by ONLY those things...NOT.. our mere words or temporary prosperity and human accolades but OUR ACTIONS...  and lastly the good news that prophecy tells us it WILL HAPPEN....

"For the earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, As the waters cover the sea. Hab. 2:14.

Did Jesus Speak Literally or Figuratively In John 17 - Concerning Doctrine and Understanding Of Jesus Christ ?



I believe that Scripture is clear that God's Word is Holy and those who come Teaching His Word must be very careful how they interpret Holy Scripture.  2 Tim. 2:15 and    2Peter 1: 20,21. In today's world, Anybody with a video camera can make a Bible teaching video.

I saw a video on youtube last night https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJzd40rRWkw

He attempts to refute a colleague of mine who has dedicated much of his life to defending a Biblical Unitarian understanding of Scripture.

which Is : a One Person God, the Father Of Jesus Christ our Lord and This Jesus Christ is a One and Only Fully Human Jesus Christ...alone.

This young guy attempts to zero in on the  "I HAD" in John 17:5 , where Jesus Christ is speaking and then wants to take the "I" as a literal pre-existence, rather than a figurative
one.

And I believe that we clearly see .. in just three verses John 17:8...that clearly shows why "I came forth"... from You......cannot be literal...

It would make God the Father in Heaven a Flesh and Blood person who gave birth to a Flesh and blood and/or a Spiritual Messiah with two Parallel existences....one coming forth from Mary and One from the Father.

And then it would get even more absurd....at some point the One from Mary and God (that we know of)....would HAVE to be supernaturally exchanged for the one speaking in the passage.

When will they give up their false idols and stop privately interpreting Our God's Word?

Truth Or Death

Here's a new saying of mine; concerning my Faith in the Truth of Jesus Christ Our Lord

....consider its Wisdom.

If you are not willing to die for the Truth...do you really have it? JC Goodman

Our Lord Jesus Christ declares in John  8:31,32, and 36.....  a very revealing Word of God.

31So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, "If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; 32and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."…

36"So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.…

a HUGE AMEN..to that...

Peace be upon all who understand the mysteries of the Kingdom of God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
