Frequently Asked Questions
1) What denomination are you? I'm a Christian. I am not affiliated with any denomination what so ever. I think Jesus
Christ said it best when He said "Follow Me". Jesus Christ did not start the different denominations, man did. The different
denominations pick and chose what they like from the Word of God and add their own thoughts which takes them away from the
teachings of Jesus Christ. Paul warns us about this in Colossians 2:8
V8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men,
after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
2) Do you study with Pastor Arnold Murray? Yes I do study with Pastor Murray from the Shepherd's Chapel. Also, I do
not speak for Shepherd's Chapel in anyway, I'm just a student.
3) What study tools do you use? I use the Companion Bible and a Strong's Exhaustive Concordance. If you would like
more information on them, take a look at the Bible Study Books page.
4) Can I print and use your studies and quizzes? Sure! You can print our studies and quizzes to help plant seeds to
others as long as you do not change the study or quiz in anyway. What you can not do is use our studies or quizzes for your
own web site, post to a news group, message board or anything else like that. If you have a web site and want others to see
something on our site, feel free to link to any of our pages.
5) Do you follow Christian identity teachings? No. Christian identity teaches that the white race is the true Israel
and therefore better than all the other races. While some people from the white race are part of Israel, not all are. First
off, all the races were created on the sixth day, including the white race. Adam from the garden of Eden was created on the
eighth day. From Adam to Abraham, there are twenty generations (Luke 3:34-38). Taking the twenty generations and the sixth
day creation into account, there are many from the white race that are not part of true Israel. Second, God made His covenant
with Abraham in Genesis 15. God also talked about the covenant in Genesis 17 and told Abraham in Genesis 17:21 that He would
establish His covenant with his son Isaac. God then passed on the covenant to Isaac's son Jacob in Genesis 28:10-22 Jacob
had his name changed to Israel by God in Genesis 32:24-32 and it is Jacob's twelve sons that make up the twelve tribes of
Israel (Genesis 49). To be part of true Israel, your roots would have to go back to these people. Third, in Acts 10:34-35
it tells us that God does not play favorites. Fourth, under the new covenant with Jesus Christ, any person that is faithful
to God and Jesus Christ are blessed with faithful Abraham (Galatians 3:6-9 and 3:26-29). For more information on this, see
the questions about Adam and Eve.
V6 Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.
V7 Know ye
therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.
V8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God
would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.
So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
V26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
V27 For as many of you
as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
V28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free,
there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
V29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's
seed, and heirs according to the promise.
6) What church do you go to? I do not go to church. The reason is because most churches follow the traditions of men
and not the true Word of God. We are warned about this in Romans 16:17-18 Colossians 2:8 and II Corinthians 6:14-18 As the
Bible teaches us, if you can not find a church that teaches the truth, it is better not to go at all. If you want to know
if your church is one that teaches the truth, read Revelation 2:1 to 3:22 Seven churches are talked about and Jesus Christ
only found two that had no faults. Those are the churches of Smyrna and Philadelphia. What they teach that the others do not
is who the Kenites are. They are the sons of Cain who's father is Satan and they claim to be part of the tribe of Judah who
are the Jewish people. You can find more information on Cain and his father, Satan in our study on the Garden
Of Eden. If your not in a church that teaches you that, God's Word tells us that you should leave. I read the Bible
and let God guide me on what to do.
V17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the
doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
V18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own
belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
7) Tell me more about yourself. My name is Walter and I'm 48 years old. I was born in Atlanta, Georgia
Thanksgiving Day, November 24,1960 but moved to California in January 1980. I've never been married and do
not have any children. I have had a love for God even as a child but I did not start really studying the Bible until 1990.
I have been working on this site since November 25 1997 and it is a lot of fun. I enjoy sharing the Word of God with others
as I know it can change a persons life.
27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me:
28 And I give unto them eternal
life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand.
29 My Father, Which gave them Me, is
greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of My Father's hand.
30 I and My Father are one.
8) What kind of computer do you use? I use a Apple computer with the Mac OS X operating system. In the past I have used the Windows operating system but I became tired of the security problems it is
plagued with. This lead me on a quest for a new operating system. I tried FreeBSD, OpenBSD and different versions of Linux.
While each had it's strength and weaknesses, they didn't meet all my needs. Then I heard about Apple's Mac OS X operating
system and decided to give it a try. Mac OS X only runs on Apple computers so I bought one and it has been the best experience
I have ever had with computers. Mac OS X is not only the best looking operating system I have ever used but I also don't have
to worry about all the adware, spyware, viruses, popups and worms that plague the Windows operating system. If your in the
market for a new PC, I recommend Apple wholeheartedly. I have taken some screen shots so you can get an idea of what Mac OS X looks like. I have made them smaller so they with
download faster but they might be a little blurry. The first one is of my desktop. The second one is surfing the web and iChat. While you can minimize running programs in Mac OS
X like you can in the Windows OS, Mac OS X also has a cool feature called Expose. If you have many programs running at the
same time, press a button on the keyboard and Expose will sort it out for you. Before and After.
If your not in the market for a new PC at this time and you run the Windows OS, make sure you stay current with
the security patches from Microsoft. First save any work you have in open programs then close them all accept for Internet
Explorer. I recommend that because you might have to reboot your computer. Then go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com and click on scan for updates. Look for the section called critical updates and service packs. Click on that and download
them to your PC. After you downloaded them and reboot, it's a good idea to go to Windows update again because after installing
one update there could be a new update for what you just installed. You should do that at least once a month. Then you should
go to Mozilla and download either the Firefox or Mozilla web browser. Mozilla comes with an email program while Firefox does not. If you
pick Firefox and want email as well, you can download Thunderbird from the same site. All those programs you can download
for free. Mozilla and Firefox are more modern web browsers and don't have the security problems that plague Internet Explorer.
