Dollar Dies," by Willard Cantelon. He was a brilliant world traveler,
scholar, and consultant to world leaders and parliaments on the subject
of international currencies. He was also a Bible believer who believed
that the Bible prophesied a coming "Mark of the Beast" when all men
would take a mark, without which no man would be able to buy or sell.

Gary Allen. Allen exposed the secretive plans of many of the world's

floating around about the
nature of God. But if we leave the basis of the Word of God, we don't

POST- APOSTOLIC definitions of God and get back the the original Bible
teachings. It simply doesn't matter what the THIRD CENTURY or TWENTIETH

into the Word and see the most amazing things about God.

Genesis-to-Revelation overview of the nature of God. VERY enlightening!
Baptism in the
Name of Jesus
28:19 and Acts 2:38 both teach the need for water baptism. Did
Peter's teaching contradict Jesus? Millions of people are baptized in
Jesus' name. Are they wrong?

speaking in tongues demonic or divine? If the Baptism of the Holy Ghost
is unnecessary or optional, why is it in the Bible?
The Lord is that Spirit
spirit of the Father, the spirit of Christ, and the Holy Ghost. One or
three? This is real doctrine - "meat for men". Don't read it if you
don't want to be challenged!
