I trust that this site will be a resource for studies that confirm God's reality and the validity of the Bible; and help in explaining some of the gnatty little questions concerning God, the Bible and Christianity. Straight Talk about God is a non-threatening, friendly place to confirm God and build the confidence to act in trust of His word. Straight Talk is not affiliated with any denomination and generally shuns traditional Christian practices and doctrine. Straight Talk is founded on the teachings of Paul, along with those of Dr. Gene Scott. And MUCH independent study. Straight Talk about God is fulfilling Ephesians 4:12, which says that "the work of the ministry" is "the edifying of the body of Christ." In other words, as C S Lewis says, we're supposed to "show off God to each other." That's what this web site aims to do. Jesus told us that no one can come to God unless the Father "draws" him. If you're reading this, then you were "drawn" here and will most likely find the answer to a question that you have about God.
Faith is a verb.
Here's what I believe: Through the evidence of God's hand on the stage of history, His irrefutable creations and His working in my personal life, I gain the strength I need to overcome daily adversity, know His Word is forever settled in heaven, and that He will stand by me.
Be sure to see Fifty Pieces, a book of essays on the practical side of the faith walk.
I thought it might be convenient to have a central place where additions to Straight Talk could be easily accessed. These pages are also in their respective categories, but this way you won't miss a new page because it's "buried" in a different place on the site. There's a lot of stuff on this site. I hope this "staging area" has been helpful. Thanks for trying it out. I'll rotate in any new pages as they fall out. And I guess the new links will stay for a few months, at least.
Who Was Melchizedek?
The encounter by Abram with Melchizedek is obviously the first type of Communion in the Bible. What about the tithes that Abram paid to Melchizedek? It would definitely imply that Melchizidek was Abram's teacher in God things. It would also imply that this was not their first meeting. This conclusion can be reached by only applying these three Principles of God's Walk. God is real, faithing and pay the teacher.
God's Name is the Gospel
This is an amazing little study that I "stumbled" onto as a result of an email question. Through gematria, I found that the four letters of God's name tell the complete story of God's grace to man through the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. That's God, people.
At The Speed Of Time
Are there mental "positions" for the passage of time? Do certain mindsets affect our perception of the passage of time? It's commonly expressed that the time goes by quickly. But I've noticed that the older a person gets, the more this is expressed. Back 50 years ago, I can't remember thinking about time in this way. It was never "suddenly" November, and what happened to July? That got me asking if there were certain circumstances that seemed to foster our feelings about the passage of time.
COMMENTARY ON THE ANTI-CHRIST
We are on the brink of the New World Order. This government will exceed the individual sovereignty of all nations; just as the European Union can dictate to the once sovereign nations of Europe.
I'd like to offer some insight into who may become the Anti-Christ. Deeper study into who may become the Anti-Christ will have to include the "chosen" people AND their God-given mission on the earth. Another important question: What will be the configuration of the armies at Armageddon? It's in the book!
YOU AREN'T REALLY YOU
God is a spirit. The devil is a spirit. The Angels are spirits. And You are a spirit. If You are a spirit, what is your body?
Your Self, your Spirit, You, manipulate energy to form a tool that allows You to experience the physical reality. That tool is your physical body. Your physical body is not You. This idea is nothing new. It's been taught since there were people. The point is not that your body, your brain, your mind is not You. The point is why we have bodies at all. Extending outward, the point is, why is there a physical reality?
ALSO FEATURED AT THE ARCHIVE: TRANSCRIPTIONS.
With the help of two Angels, this section of Straight Talk is up and running strong with some 80 transcriptions ready to read. There are ten programs in the Lost Tribes Series, twenty on the Illumninati and programs of various other subjects. The most rcent transcriptions are listed below in the Archive section.
OF SPECIAL INTEREST:
Nine transcriptions of New World Order programs. These were broadcast as long ago as 1997. Interesting how the stuff we talked about is now in place.
Fifty Pieces Audio and PDF
Also now available is an audio version of Fifty Pieces, A Personal Walk of Faith. This version is held on one CD and is formatted in MP3. The individual pieces are separated into their own tracks. If your MP3 player lacks Fast Forward and Reverse, you won't have to start at the beginning of the book each time. There are 56 tracks altogether.
I have also transferred Fifty Pieces into PDF format. This is convenient for searching the text and for printing individual pieces.
NEW ADDITIONS TO THE STRAIGHT TALK ARCHIVE:
I've added a new section to the Archive. It's called Recent. It will contain the last ten to twenty programs. These programs will eventually rotate into the appropriate categories, but I will always leave the ten most recent programs in the section.
The last few were:
Heroes of Faithing
Here's a new look at some familiar Bible stories. We've been told that these heroes trusted God. But we've very seldom come across the actual breakdown, in terms of the Biblical definition of faith, of how these folks acted out their trust. That's what "Heroes" does. It approaches these stories of faithful people from the angle of that faith. These stories try to show the practical, human side of faith working in everyday circumstances. By seeing that the basic process of faithing is the same in All situations, we can know that every situation in our lives is also open to acts of trust of God's word. Heroes of faithing are Bible stories for adults, written so young people can understand. You can read while you listen.
Works or Faithing - Coincidental Pilgrims
The centuries old controversy regarding salvation by works or faith(ing)is treated in detail. Then, the blatant show of God's hand in history, by way of the Pilgrims. Coincidence after coincidence allowed the Pilgrims to land in a safe place and be guided by Squanto the indian, a local resident, recently return from England. I always say, "How many coincidences make a fact?"
Endtimes, The Gap Theory, One World Church
We'll talk about the "end of the World" today. Even non-Believers are talking about the world situation and a possible collapse of humanity in general. Jesus' outline in Matthew of what will e happening in the end is a good description of the world today. Wars and rumors of wars, famine, plague, etc. And Believers want to know When. You can readwhile you listen.
Who is Jesus and what is Christianity? John, chapter 17 has the answers. It's pretty much a short outline of God's plan for us. It ticks off all the important points we need to know about out walk with God. He long version would be what Paul wrote in his letter to the Romans. This has been called a PhD thesis on Christianity. And if we have time, we'll bring in Psalm 91.You can read while you listen.
What's God Doing?
I want to start off the new year by investigating what God is doing. What is God doing? There's a long list of things that most Believers think that God is or should be doing. But, He's not. They would be quick to tell you that God is in the business of saving people. That's like saying the baker is a janitor because he cleans out his oven. That's not the baker's main objective.
