My Personal Journey

Because my Lord Jesus Christ commanded “all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets” (Mat 7:12), therefore I write as I would want to be written to. I approach all of my writings with the mindset that if I was still deceived in Trinitarian churches as I was for almost 30 years, I would want someone to tell me the truth even if I didn’t want to hear it. I don’t intend to come across a little harsh at times but I feel it’s necessary to get right to the point. It’s because I truly care for people that I’m willing to say what needs to be said, “But speaking the truth in love” (Eph 4:15).

Here is a little about my background to help you know me better. I first began hearing about Jesus Christ in 1990 in a Pentecostal church. Within a few months I answered an altar call to receive Christ as my Savior and was baptized as a Trinitarian “Christian.” Later, I became a full-time student at RHEMA Bible Training Center in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma and graduated two years later. I was in Charismatic and Pentecostal churches for about 13 years until my own personal study of the Scriptures convinced me that these groups were wrong. My wife and I then became members of two different Baptist churches over a 15-year span where I learned Calvinism and was deceived into believing that it was the truth. But over the years, it was again my own personal study of the Scriptures that convinced me Calvinism is false. During that period, my wife and I were also missionaries in Vietnam for two years. Eventually, the insights of a particular minister on a forum prompted me to begin studying objectively about the doctrine of the Trinity. And once again, my own personal study of the Scriptures convinced me that Trinitarianism is false.

All of that was a 30-year journey resulting in my wife, daughter, and I leaving churches entirely except that we sometimes attend a local non-denominational Trinitarian church. Of course there are no perfect churches. But that’s not the problem. The problem is that I can’t find even a true church. If I could find one, I would gladly join it and support it. Trinitarian churches teach a false view of God and a false view of the Son of God. And most non-Trinitarian churches don’t fare any better, but many even worse. Some, however, have a correct understanding that there is one true God, but their view of His Son is wrong—that the Son of God has always existed, or that He had a beginning but it was at the virgin birth, or that He is no longer flesh but some kind of spirit being.

The one thing I’ve had going for me these 30+ years is that I’ve sincerely and doggedly pursued the truth by striving to obtain the correct understanding of the Scriptures—thus the title of my website. I just want to know what truly is the truth and govern my life by it. And I’ve learned that this only comes by laying aside all of my assumptions and approaching the Scriptures as objectively as possible.

The purpose of my website isn’t to get a lot of Followers or Likes even though I’m certainly encouraged by those. And I’m not trying to make a name for myself or get recognition. I say with all sincerity that I simply want to help others come to the knowledge of the truth and have eternal life. I write a lot against Trinitarianism because I’m convinced Scripturally it’s a false view of God and His Son Jesus Christ that’s leading people the wrong way. I don’t want people to perish but be saved through our Lord Jesus Christ.
