Where to Start Reading

Coming soon.  

Go to the Scriptarium and review The Gospel at the link provided.  

Theologians will give you great sections of the Bible to read, in context.


Avoid, Reject, Run

  • The Message Bible (MSG)
  • The Passion
  • The Living Bible (TLB)
  • New World Translation – Jehovahs witnesses rewrite of scripture, heretical. 
  • Book of Mormon – Reinterprets scripture including heretical doctrines. They use KJV Bible, but they preach, teach, and live by their book.
  • The YouVersion Bible App (It is free and full of charismatic false teacher references)

Churches using these Bibles should be avoided, like RUN!!
