a reliable history 

A Church to be Trusted 

A reason to believe historians.  Are historians more trustworthy than theologians?  They don’t have denominations.  They don’t have a pope.  They just have other historians checking their work.  Self policing.  They don’t carry guns.  Just a pen.  It is mightier than the sword.  History records this.  


a need to understand

A Reason For Free Speech 

A silence only protects the lie.  The truth like a candle will always penetrate the darkness.  The liar must restrict free speech.  Reason and logic also threaten the lie.  Seek the truth and you will find it.  Speak the truth and you will be attacked by the liars.  Be not afraid.  The truth will set you free.  


a repetition

A Teaching Technique 

recapitulation, a theory first introduced by Victorinus which holds visions in the Apocalypse are repeated and are not necessarily in chronological order.  Like the lie, the truth must be repeated to avoid misinterpretation.  The chapters of the Apocalypse are not in chronological order.  


a subjective truth 

A Lie in the Making 

A victim’s best friend.  You have to blame someone or something.  You can’t appreciate what you are or what you have.  You can’t do anything about it.  You can always complain.  The system is against you and it must be destroyed.  An objective truth can make you free.  


a lie repeated 

A Proven Teaching Technique 

A blocking of the truth is still needed to protect the lie.  Repetition of the lie is never sufficient.  Censorship is also required.  The lie can’t handle the truth.  Your mission, if you choose to accept it,  is to state the truth every chance you get even though they will come after you.  


a liar

A Misinformed Person 

A distinction without a difference.  The lie doesn’t care.  Only the truth matters as far as the lie is concerned.  The lie can’t handle the truth.  It must be blocked.  What is your test for the truth?  Does the truth need to be protected?  No.  Only the lie.  Is your source for the truth protecting the lie?  


a test for liars 

A Word Not Found In Some Bibles 

A letter to the church in Ephesus.  He knows your works.  You may not find the word “test” in your bible.  We need to test our leaders.  They may be liars.  We are being tested.  What we do as well as what we say is being tested.  We need to test what is being said.  Are we being lied to?
