Abundant Life

Teaching: Why I Believe the Bible – Part Three

Every Sunday I provide videos and valuable links to the Truth or Tradition teachings. We’ve been following the Truth or Tradition teachings for many years now and they have truly blessed our family. We have found peace and happiness through our beliefs and we walk confidently for God. My hope, by passing on this information to you, is that what you find here, or on the Truth or Tradition website, will guide you to a better, more blessed and abundant life.

If you would like to read my views on religion and how we got started with the ministry, you can read this.

Let’s get started:

We believe the Scriptures are God’s “heart” revealed to mankind. The reason God wants us to know the truth is so we can live it and share it with others. God wants us to be “imitators” of Him, and His chief characteristic is love. Truth without love is vanity; love without truth is sentimentality. We believe the following are the crucial teachings of Scripture, crucial because misunderstanding them detracts from the quality of one’s life, that is his ability to reverence and obey the one true God and His Son.

We believe that the Scriptures are “God-breathed,” perfect in their original writing, without flaw or contradiction, and provide the only sure and steadfast basis for faith. Understanding Scripture is attainable by applying logic and sound principles of biblical interpretation, in conjunction with the spirit of God in us. Topic: Can you trust the Bible?

We believe that God, the Creator, the Father of Jesus Christ, is “the only true God” (John 17:3), holy and separate from all His creation. He is a personal God who has committed Himself to us in writing. Topic: The Trinity

We believe that Jesus Christ, the “last Adam,” is the only-begotten Son of God. He was born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, suffered and died as a payment for all men’s sin, was raised from the dead and exalted to the position of “Lord” by God His Father. Who is Jesus Christ?

We believe that “the Holy Spirit” is another name for God, while “holy spirit” is God’s gift of His divine nature that a person receives when he is born again, the “spirit of truth” that Jesus promised. He differentiated between these two when He said, “That which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” The Giver and the Gift

We believe that all nine “manifestations” of the gift of God (“holy spirit”) are available, desirable and profitable to every believer to operate by faith, in conjunction with God’s energizing. Topic: Manifestations of Holy Spirit

We believe that today, in the “Administration of the Sacred Secret,” salvation is permanent for those who have once confessed Jesus Christ as Lord and believed that God raised Him from the dead. We believe that when one adheres to Romans 10:9, he is “saved,” “born again,” “sealed,” “anointed,” “clothed with power from on high” and “baptized with holy spirit.” This baptism in holy spirit is the “one baptism” of Ephesians 4:5.

  1. That’s interesting that you believe that God the Father and Jesus Christ are separate beings. We also believe that and find that we are in the minority in the Christian world. Though we believe that the Holy Spirit is a separate being. It’s always interesting reading about other people’s beliefs.

    I think I originally started reading your blog as part of a giveaway, but I still subscribe and find it very interesting!
