Truth Seekers Home Page - Introduction
|You are in the Truth Seekers
section of our site.
If you wish to visit the Audio Manuals and related portions
of our site, use the menu across the top of the page. At the
bottom of each page on our site is a link to this "slightly
hidden" section. Otherwise, there are no other links to it because
it isn't intended for everyone to find it, only those whom the
Holy Spirit brings.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has
gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself
through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was
reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against
them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore
Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We
implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had
no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness
of God. 2 Corinthians 5:17-21 NIV
Stuff Rick Wrote - Introduction
This section of our site is a work in progress and will change from
time to time. It is not my intention to offer a huge number
of links to other sites... just a few to some particular
pages and some sites that will possibly *open the doors*
of your understanding.
These sites offer many links to writings and other sites
where you will find information and insight about many things. These
folks are attempting to present Truth to you in a way that you might
read, understand and gain wisdom.
I once heard Mark Hanby (a leading figure in the Body of
Christ) make this profound statement, "Religion is what
*man says* God says... NOT what *God says". This is one
of the most truthful things I have ever heard.
The problem is that the church has for centuries done an
absolutely horrible job of teaching about the true nature of God.
The church world has been filled with violence, hypocrisy,
bitterness, and false teachings. People have suffered greatly
because of a lack of understanding about true wisdom.
Wisdom is available to all of us. Wisdom is a person
and has a name. His name is Jesus and He presents himself
to all who are seeking through the Holy Spirit. There is so much
fascinating information concerning the eternal purposes of God available
to anyone who wants to find it. Let the Holy Spirit fulfill his
role in your life as your Teacher.
We are all of one common heritage. We are all spirit
that came from God and will return to God when we leave our body
in this physical life. There is no other place for our
spirit to reside except to be with the one from whence we came.
There are two simple phrases that kind
of sum up the dealings of God in our lives. As I came to realize
what I have come to believe as truth, they became abundantly clear
The first is expressed by the world's words *S--- Happens*.
Simply, both bad things and refreshing times blow through everyone's
life. Everything that happens in life is not the result of the blessings
or cursings of God. And everything is not because of an
attack of the devil or because of your righteousness or lack thereof.
The second is that *God is in control and is not
mad at you!* His eternal plans are not to whip you in this
life for your every transgression. And it is not to punish you forever
by burning for every indiscretion for which you forgot to repent.
Don't wait till you are dead to find the truth.
Find the truth while you are alive and then learn to live.
Do yourself a favor and take some time
to explore a bit. Perhaps you will read the views of others that
are totally opposed to your current beliefs and perhaps even cause
you to become angry. Maybe you will find some words that
will immediately be as a cool drink of water and as a salve to your
The Holy Spirit is faithful to open the eyes of your understanding
in a way that truth might flood your understanding with new light.
May your life only become better and better as
the Spirit of God begins to shed more light within you.
While I have a general agreement with
many of the ideas, thoughts and theologies you will find by following
these links, I am not in agreement and do not specifically endorse
the views of each author in everything they have to say.
We offer our words and present these links to you
as an opportunity and as an encouragement to take some time to read
the convictions of these authors. As always, you will decide for
yourself what to believe or disbelieve. Nuff said! Read on...
