The principles of Christianity

Contrary to the contemporary mantra that America was birthed as a secular nation, the historical evidence demonstrates that America was founded by Christians who wished to enjoy the liberty to freely express their Christian faith. 

Lamentably, Christians have forgotten and neglected the Christian heritage bequeathed to them by America's Founding Fathers and have allowed secularists to disparage and deny what was given to them at such a great price. 

America's Founding Fathers and the Bible briefly describes a portion of America's Christian heritage, particularly during the rise of nationalism when America was shaping its national government. During this era, the Founding Fathers affirmed both the principles and practices of the Bible. By no means exhaustive, this work demonstrates that America's Founding Fathers clearly intended to perpetuate the Christian faith, in both private and public observances. 

The Founding Fathers left a legacy of publicly honoring the principles of Christianity and fully intended that succeeding generations of Americans should do the same. ~ Available at Amazon 

Dealing With Anger, Bitterness and Unforgiveness

Highly  recommended read for the Church, the Body of Christ, for pastors to hand out or for anyone looking to move forward and get better – not bitter.  Additionally, also a great way to point others in the direction of what the Lord expects of His children, which is, “Yes, you are your brother’s keeper.”

When Good Samaritans Get Mugged: Hope and Healing for Wounded Warriors, by David R. Stokes invites readers on a delightful road of forgiveness to thriving in every way. Connecting the dots, the author leads readers through the art of storytelling, as Jesus did, to the discovery of grace (through Christ) and relates what that means for us.

He offers help through the application of forgiveness, mercy, love, patience, the Bible and God’s ways that challenges readers to make an inner-self survey. Dealing with such subjects as: anger, bitterness and unforgiveness, he shows readers the only way to having true and lasting inner peace – through reliance on God and complete forgiveness.

Knowing that we all get hurt, even when trying to do “good” things – and even by those who are within the church walls, he begins with the story of the Good Samaritan as a backdrop to the question: What do you do when you receive hurt and/or pain either physically, emotionally, or spiritually from other believers (and others in the world)? Offering true scriptural and Biblical answers, this book offers hope for the journey into forgiveness, the grace of God and a renewing of the mind that leads to maturity in Christ.

Using such Biblical examples as “Saul of Tarsus” who was later converted to the Apostle Paul and also Joseph’s story, the author also relates a number of compelling true-life stories that add intrigue and captivate one’s intellect and heart. Teaching and instructing along the way, the author advocates Scripture memorization as way to build the inner man and faith – as one learns to “take every thought captive”- and tend to your thoughts as you would a garden – plucking out the weeds. Filled with insightful wisdom, encouragement, inspiration, and a keen understanding for the ways of God, the author presents sound and practical advice on how to handle the hard punches in life.

Truthfully, there is not a person on this Earth who can say, “I’ve had a pain free life.” With that in mind, inevitably this book will touch you in some profound way. I have to say this is the only book, (that I read in only two sessions and wanted to read straight through). I could literally not put the book down! Filled with so much candor, the author gets to his point in a number of memorable ways through his great story telling ability that not only intertwine Scripture, history, Biblical figures, but also memorable sporting events, to include everyday citizens, that will impact your life.

Everyone has a story. His book relates this fact clearly and states that if we think about our life, you will understand we all need forgiveness on many levels in life, as he answers some hard questions about how to get over the past and move forward.

As one who has lived through the up-and-downs of life as a pastor, father and seen many ministers that have quit along the way for various reasons, he knows what he is talking about.

The Hidden Puzzle in Marriage: The Twist Against Choice by Samuel Adjeipong unlocks secrets from a Biblical perspective to reveal the purpose, creation and institution of marriage. 

Offering readers a deep understanding of marriage, the author has written a detailed book that gives married couples and single individuals leading and instruction on God’s grand design.

Digging deeper into the meaning of this creation of woman, the author also asks intricate questions in the book such as: “Can it be possible that God Almighty had the forethought of our satisfaction, contentment, and fulfillment in marriage when He initiated it in the Garden of Eden?” “And also what are His thoughts of intimacy in marriage?” 

“Can intimacy be nurtured?” “Should the choice of a spouse be my own or God’s” With these thoughts in mind, the author then considers the “puzzle” of marriage and how the pieces fit together between a man and a woman from a multi-dimensional view.

Wisdom form God - Just Ask

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.  James 1:5-6

Knowledge is information, but wisdom is the right use of information. Many people have a lot of knowledge, but lack wisdom. A person may be a good driver of a car, but does not show wisdom when driving rapidly under poor road conditions. 

You must be able to apply the knowledge you have in making wise decisions or else your knowledge will be useless. God wants you to come boldly to Him to receive divine wisdom, which far exceeds human wisdom. James tells you to ask in faith, expecting to receive what you are asking for. Possibly you are facing a decision that requires wisdom today. 

Ask God for His wisdom and expect Him to honor His Word by giving it to you. Start praising Him for the answers you are going to receive.

The Shattered Pieces Of Life

Psalm 19:14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my redeemer.  

It is extremely important that you are completely sincere when you ask the Holy Spirit for guidance. God wants to protect you from many disappointments, but can only do so when you want to remain in the center of His will. 

What should you do if what you have asked for turned out to be out of the will of God? The first thing is repentance. 

Ask God to forgive you, and then ask Him how you should pray to change the problem. He can take the shattered pieces of a broken vessel and make them new again. 

The problem did not come overnight, so be patient while you and the Lord work on the process of correcting the problems. Spend more time in praising Him that the answer is on the way. Continue to expect complete victory over the situation. 

A Wonderful Well Rounded Biblical Read

Written in Epistle form (letter format), like the Epistles in the Bible, the author, a college professor speaks to his audience in the hopes that they will find salvation and purpose for their lives. - Big Bang Theology: God’s Purpose for Creation by Dr. WM D’Leoni offers readers (college age and above) insight into God’s purpose for their lives. With a creative twist, the book is named, dubbed after the Evolutionist’s Big Bang, recalibrated into the Big Bang Theology. 

The targeted collegial audience is just beginning their independent life and careers, as the author presents important life questions that he answers with compassion and scripture verses. 

Questions such as; Why am I here? What is my purpose? Who is God and what is a spiritual reboot? The author makes his book fun and interesting, while giving a biblical foundation to those that wonder what God’s purpose is for Creation and mankind.

With faith-building guidance and Scripture, the book is easily divided into 6 chapters such as: The Purpose of Creation, Big Bang Love, Big Bang Faith, Big Bang Hope, Big Bang Reverberations and Big Bang Ruminations. 

The author offers a fantastic read that helps readers fully understand faith, hope, eternal life, not being conformed to the world’s standards that give sound advice to readers. The author offers a keen biblical understanding to being born again, accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior, the realities on Heaven and Hell, offering a real-life guide as to how to live life according to God’s ways, not man’s. The author writes with many years of wisdom, explaining in layman’s terms in such a way, this book will surely grab youths’ attention. 

For example, The Most Expensive Christmas Present, is the author’s way of speaking loud and clear to our youth about the birth of Jesus Christ and why this present is so important to them. Reading his book is like getting sound advice, in an interesting way, from a wise old grandfather.For several reasons listed in the book, the author has a clear purpose in writing to his targeted audience (his past and present) collage age and young adult students. Mainly, he wants others to understand their purpose and live fully as God intended, alive to the Spirit and saved. 

Highly recommended for not only “Big Bang Theory” fans (the author’s personal favorite TV show), but the many college age students who want to understand what their place and purpose is in all of God’s great Creation.

A wonderful, well-rounded, biblical read that has the potential to reach those Millennials out there for Christ without boring them to death! Well done! You may get your copy of the Big Bang Theology at Amazon, in Kindle, Barnes and Noble and other fine online bookstores.
