This website is hosted and monitored by Biblical Teachers Lemie B. McGarity and Lani W. Finley, who are dedicated to presenting a truth-filled and balanced understanding of the Christian life. One of the greatest dimensions missing in today’s Christian community is properly understanding the harmony and balance of God’s Word. There are thousands of different denominations, sects, and schisms in the Christian community today. All of these religious bodies professes to embrace the truth. Is it possible for there to be more than one version of the truth? Not according to the words of Jesus as recorded in John 17:17, “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” It is evident that there is only one source and one message of truth, and they are enshrined in God’s Holy Scriptures.
The Bible teaches us that, “…ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). If it is truth that makes us free, then it can only be untruths or error, which keeps us in bondage. The error that has divided Modern Christianity into so many different groups is their failure to understand how our salvation in Christ, our obedience to the Lord, and observance of Biblically ordained days of worship, work in harmony to produce a balanced Christian life.
One group of Believers may teach that God’s grace has abolished His laws of love, as outlined in the Ten Commandments, another may proclaim that we can only gain salvation and righteousness by keeping the Laws of God, and most of mainstream Christianity has accepted the belief that mankind can create his own days of worship, outside of the instructions of the Bible.
However, the simple and balanced truth is that grace, obedience and God-ordained assemblies of worship form the foundation of true Christianity. They each have a specific role to perform in the Christian’s life and do not stray from the purpose for which they were created.
Grace shows us the love that God has for humanity. The most costly thing God ever did, was to love mankind. It cost Him the life of His precious Son, Jesus Christ. It is a gift from God and cannot be purchased by human works of righteousness. It does not give us a license to sin; rather grace should make us want to give ourselves totally to our God who loves us so deeply. We are saved through faith in the shed blood, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ – alone. Nothing can be added to, or taken away from His perfect sacrifice. Jesus is our only hope of salvation.
Having stated that mighty truth, God’s laws of love enable us to understand the mind of our Heavenly Father and Christ Jesus and teach us how to love them and our fellowman. Our faith in God’s grace is proven by our obedience to His laws of love, as revealed in the Ten Commandments. Our obedience to all His Commandments, teachings and instructions, proves that we have made Jesus the Lord of our lives, as well as Savior. Obedience is not earning one’s salvation, but is a fruit of grace and shows appreciation and thanksgiving for God’s love and mercy.
The annual festivals of God celebrate the salvation works of The Heavenly Father through His Son, Jesus Christ. They are a tribute to the love, sufferings and sacrifices that our Lord and eternal Father have made for humanity. They show us God’s plan for saving the human race. These festivals were created in the mind and heart of God, as a memorial to the redemptive works of Jesus. God has blessed them, and they are the only ordained assemblies of worship revealed within the scriptures
These foundational truths are an indispensable part of a balanced Christian life in Jesus Christ. The confusion over this subject makes it essential that we comprehend how God’s moral code of conduct, as revealed in His Ten Commandments and His chosen days of worship work together, and in complete harmony with grace. Understanding these truths will enable us to better understand our New Testament relationship with God the Father, through His Son, Jesus Christ.
Our objective is to distribute only Biblically based information, centered upon the Word of God and without the interference of man-made customs or doctrines. We pray that the literature offered on this website will help you find the truth, harmony and balance, that Jesus died to give all humanity.
In Christ Jesus,
