Concept Of Love

The Unfailing Love of God

The Bible declares that "God is love"---a simple yet significant
statement revealing that love is what God is as well as what He 
does. Do you have a full understanding of the depth and magni-
tude  of this love? Or is  your conception of His infinite  divine
love  merely  based on your own limited  concept of human love?
The love of God provides your salvation, motivates your growth
to  spiritual  maturity, and  secures your glorious, eternal  future
with  Him. God 's plan  for your life  is based on His  unfailing, 
unconditional love. He always  deals with you  in love. He loves 
you even though you are unattractive, unlovable, and undeserving.
As your  understanding and appreciation of the love of God grows,
you  learn to  reciprocate that love. Reciprocating His love increases
your capacity to love in your own soul and to sustain extraordinary
relationships with other people.

God is love.

Be Fulfilled

The Trinity

Is a doctrine unique to Christianity. No other faith, religion, sect, or
philosophy that advocates one God also proclaims that God is Three-
in- One. This apparent paradox does not mean there are 'three gods in
one,' but that one God exists as three persons who are coequal, coin--
finite, and coeternal, all possessing the same essential nature. God is
one in essence, but three in person. The Trinity is not abstract theology
but a practical doctrine that you should comprehend. Your understanding
of the plan God the Father has designed for you illuminates your destiny
in time and eternity. Your understanding of the person and work of Jesus
Christ illuminates your so-great salvation. Your understanding of the Holy
Spirit affects your concept of living the Christian life. Only by perceiving
the true biblical perspective of the Trinity can you come to love God, grow
spiritually, and fulfill your very own spiritual life.

Many are the plans in a person's heart, but it is the Lord's

Magnificent

King Of Kings And Lord Of Lords

Who was this Jesus Christ? Why was this innocent man put to death?
Jesus was undiminished deity while humbling Himself as true humanity
in one person. He came to die as our substitute, the perfect sacrifice for
sinful man----the only way of salvation. He is the unique person of the
universe, King of kings and Lord of lords! Delineated in this book are the
six trials of Christ, His phenomenal character and strength in the face of 
agonizing torture, His work as Mediator between God and man, the sign-
ificance of His resurrection. He is now seated at the right hand of God the 
Father in heaven. One day He will reign over the entire world and we, as
believers in Christ, will be a part of His magnificent kingdom.

Harmony---Clarified

God's Essence Books

The Integrity Of God

Assures mankind that absolute trust in perfect God is always 
well-placed.The unbending strength of God's essence is fully
behind everything He does or sponsors. All the attributes of His
essence from one consistent, indivisible whole--His total person-
and each attribute works together in complete harmony for the 
ultimate good of the believer. God has always possessed integrity
as part of His eternal, infinite, perfect essence. ( The Integrity of
God ) defines God's integrity and how it operates in behalf of each
Christian, from our salvation to our spiritual life to our rewards in
 heaven. Understanding this biblical doctrine clarifies the purpose of
our lives and explains our magnificent relationship with the God of
righteousness and justice.

Regain Your Momentum

Rebound Revisited

This explores the divine directive for dealing with personal
sin after salvation and regaining momentum in the spiritual
life. The Apostle Paul, above all men, completely under---
stood the importance of rebound, naming his sins privately
to God the Father. Yet at one point, even  Paul allowed his
feelings to supersede his knowledge of God's wonderful plan
of recovery. He was mired in human viewpoint and  human
solutions until  he finally set aside his emotion, utilized the 
rebound technique, and resumed his advance in the spiritual
life. Rebound is the divine solution for recovering fellowship
with  God. Never a work on the part of the believer, rebound
reveals the  majestic grace of God. God does all  the work. He
requires no emotional purging, agonizing, godly sorrow, penance,
or faith.  Recovery  from sin and regaining  fellowship with God
result only when the believer follows  the gracious mandate of
1 John 1:9

Remorse--- No More

Rebound & Keep Moving!

Is the key that unlocks the Christian way of life. After salvation
the sin nature remains a relentless adversary, tempting the believer
to sin and live in carnality. When the believer sins, fellowship with
God is destroyed, the filling of the Holy Spirit is temporarily lost,
and spiritual  progress ceases.  Rebound is the simplest yet  most in--
credible concept in the spiritual life. Rebound defeats sin. Guilt, anguish,
 remorse  over  past failures  vanish  knowing  that  God forgives
and forgets all past sins. Rebound is our access to intimacy with the
Lord, the  gateway to divine power in our lives, our license to serve
the Lord. Rebound opens the door to the wonderful freedom the grace
of God offers to every believer in Jesus Christ.

Once A Believer Always A Believer

The Prodigal Son

He leaves  home and  squanders his inheritance in  riotous living.
His elder brother   stays  home  and works   hard. When the prodigal
returns  and is  restored to his  father, the elder brother  becomes petty,
jealous, bitter, and  resentful. Despite their different paths into carnality,
their sins  cannot  remove  them from  the circumstances of  their  birth. 
Once  a  son, always   a son! As a "born  again" believer, whether you sin 
like the prodigal or like the elder brother, you remain a permanent member
of the family of God, but you lose your temporal fellowship with God. To 
remedy  this  rift, God has provided a simple, grace procedure--rebound---
so that your postsalvation sins are forgiven and you can recover fellowship
and move on  in  the Christian life. Jesus taught the parable of the prodigal
son to  an  audience of self-righteous  legalists who reviled  the profligate
prodigal  and  praised  the holier-than-thou  elder brother. Yet they entirely
missed the message! Everyone who believes  who  believes in Christ by faith
alone  is  a  permanent son  of God. Once a family member, any believer can 
reclaim his Christian life from carnality and be restored to fellowship with God.

A Solution

Isolation Of Sin 

Breaking the vicious cycle of carnality shackling many believers to
their past failures. God's grace solution for the believer's sin is rebound,
privately confessing or naming sins to God the Father. Rebound instant--
aneously's accomplishes divine forgiveness, recovery of the Holy Spirit,
and restoration to fellowship with God. Yet many believers immediately
fall out of  fellowship,  caught  in reaction, guilt, and  a chain of mental,
verbal, or  overt  sins.  As their frustration  mounts, carnality seems over--
whelming. How do you break  this cycle?  Disengage yourself from forgiven
sin! When God forgives a sin, it no longer belongs to you. Do not reclaim the
burden! God has blotted out your sin! Feeling guilty, habitually looking back-
ward, worrying, chronic self-reproach only perpetuates your status in carnality.
When you  isolate  your sin by "forgetting those  things which are past," you
can" press on" to the high ground of spiritual maturity in your Christian life.

It's Good To Control Your Nature

(Spirituality Books)

God The Holy Spirit vs. The Sin Nature

Is a ceaseless inner conflict. Each Christian by his own volition determines
who controls his life at any moment. The sin nature is inherent at birth. As
long as we live we retain this genetic distorter of our lives, with the result that
we  cannot fulfill the plan of God. Yet God's  marvelous plan  can be fulfilled.
Through the invisible ministry of God the Holy Spirit we can execute the Christian
way of life. This book tells the dramatic story of Elijah in 1 Kings 19. After a pow-
erful spiritual victory, he flees in terror because of an empty threat against his life.
The spiritual hero becomes totally ineffective. This Old Testament prophet vividly
illustrates a principle that applies to every New Testament believer: there is a vast
difference between living under the control of the sin nature and leading a life of
spiritual dynamics under the control of the Holy Spirit.

"I know the plans I have for you", declares the Lord, "plan's to
prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Jer. 29:11

A Declaration

Witnessing

The  declaration of the good news of salvation, the Gospel of 
Jesus Christ, to the  unbelieving  world . But is this  responsibility
and privilege reserved solely for the pastor, missionary, and evangelist?
Definitely not! Every believer is responsible for presenting the Gospel
to a lost and dying world. What do you tell unbelievers about Christ? You
must explain what He accomplished on the cross and how anyone can rec-
eive  this incomparable gift. Your guiding principle is faith alone in Christ
alone. You are the point of contact in the unbeliever's search for meaning
and purpose in life. Without faith in Christ and an eternal future, his life
is ultimately meaningless. When a loved one, a friend, or even a stranger
believes in Christ as Savior from your presentation of the Gospel, you will
experience the inexpressible reward of serving our Lord through witnessing.

Greatest Decision

Victory Over Death

The greatest decision we can make is the one that prepares us
for death and dying-- the decision to personally believe in Jesus
Christ for eternal salvation. Therefore, when a Christian loved
 one dies, we  celebrate  the death of  that believer  as a victory.
Death is God's victory. He gives that victory. He gives that victory
to us by determining the time, the manner, and the place of our death.
God's decision to take a believer home is always fair and timely. This
edited transcript provides comfort from the Scripture and the reassurance
that Jesus Christ Himself has provided victory over death. Available in
two sizes: a pocket-sized booklet, ideal for enclosure in sympathy cards
and letters, and a full-sized book, suitable for memorial or funeral services.

Not For To Day

Tongues

They will cease, Distortions have permeated contemporary Christianity
making this one of the most controversial statements in the Bible. Millions
of believers  today profess  to speak a language  they do  not understand, 
claiming a manifestation of the baptism of the Holy Spirit and evidence of
a superior relationship with God. The animation and enthusiasm of their
displays have infiltrated denominations and sects throughout the Christian
world. The spiritual gift of tongues, prophesied by Isaiah, was designed for
a specific divine purpose-- a warning sign to Israel of impending national
destruction. This gift, bestowed by the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost
A. D. 30, would  be an  unmistakable sign of Israel's spiritual failure and
imminent divine  judgment and would also  herald the  new Church Age.
But this spiritual gift is not operational today. The final authority for resolving
the theological conundrum of tongues is the infallible Word of God. Subjective
thinking and emotionalism mislead and obscure the truth of Bible doctrine.
Only the pertinent passages from Scripture, correctly translated and accurately
interpreted, can reveal to  the believer the truth about tongues.

Do not Retreat, Advance

Reversionism
Why do believers sometimes act like unbelievers?
Are they truly saved? Yes, if they have believed in Jesus Christ
they are saved for all eternity. But any Christian who habitually
revolts against God's plan is in reversionism--spiritual decadence
brought on by perpetual carnality and rejection or neglect of Bible
doctrine. Reversionism explains why believers emulate unbelievers.
In  reversionism  sin  becomes  a way of life, yet God  in His grace
 always provides the way of recovery. Avoid the pitfalls of reversionism
through  rebound and consistent spiritual growth. With Bible doctrine
in your  soul  you  can  distinguish  between  human  viewpoint, the 
expression  of  Satan's  diabolical  genius, and  divine viewpoint, the
manifestation of the thinking of Christ.
 Instead of retreating in reversiomism
advance and reach the objective, the supergrace life!

There is no more beautiful sound in all the world than four people
 blending  their voices in  perfect harmony. Conversely,  the most 
lugubrious ululations emanate from voices clashing in  a discord
of sound. Such is the quartette of fools: the atheist fool, the rich 
fool, the shameless fool, and the Christian fool. Three members
cannot sing, cannot harmonize, yet the fourth produces the finest
harmony in the world! Find out where you fit into this quartette.

Happiness

The Pursuit Of Happiness

Scripture declares King Solomon "greater then all the kings of the earth
in riches and wisdom." From  an ivory throne overlaid with pure gold,
Solomon ruled  the prosperous kingdom of Israel. Vast treasures, costly
goods, and rare  novelties like apes and peacocks enriched his noble court.
Yet Solomon  did not have happiness. The Pursuit Of Happiness confirms 
that only  through fellowship with God and the pursuit of His Word  can the
believer attain stability, contentment of soul, and a true and enduring happiness.

Words Of Comfort

Psalm Twenty--Three 

The comforting  words of the  familiar  twenty-third  Psalm resound  through
the  centuries. Written  by David in  his darkest despair, this song of hope holds
a treasure of God's grace and provision for all believers. David faced a revolution
led by  his beloved son Absalom. Forced  to flee for his  life, he relied on the true
Source of  his  security and  prosperity-- the  Lord  Jesus Christ. David's  journey 
through  the  death-shadowed  valley gives  us insight into how a  mature believer
endures  suffering  in  disaster  and  triumphs over  his  enemies. Like  David the 
 believer  who  pursues  Bible doctrine  and  advances to spiritual maturity will be
rewarded with  blessing and prosperity in  time and in  eternity. "The Lord is the
 one  who  keeps  on  shepherding me,"  David  wrote, "I cannot  and do not lack
anything."

Go To The Throne

Prayer
Is a great weapon of the spiritual life! Through prayer ypu
have instant access to the throne room of God to communicate
directly with God the Father. But to pray effectively, you must
know how to pray. God  has established basic ground rules to 
follow.  Armed  with  these  procedures, you  will  be  able to  
confidently  approach the  throne of grace and express gratitude
to God, intercede on behalf of others, and petition for your own
personal needs. God has mandated you to "pray without ceasing."
Wielding the power of prevailing prayer, you have the opportunity
to support those in need; to participate in the ministries of pastors,
missionaries, and evangelists; to sustain and deliver the nation.
God  answers prayer in fantastic ways, but always so that His will
and plan might be fulfilled.

Mental Attitude Dynamics

Behind every face is a mental attitude, a manner of thinking.
You are what you think! God  mandates  that you think divine

blessing, and a relaxed mental attitude toward people.

Anytime  God removes a  person from  this  life, the 
decision  is based on His  perfect wisdom and integrity.
Those of us left behind can rejoice in the knowledge that
the departed believer is in a state  of perfect happiness with
the  Lord. Furthermore, the death of  a loved one is often a
reminder of the shortness of time we have on this earth. By 
making the greatest decision of our life---choosing to believe
in the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior--- we can be prepared for
eternity.

God Is Grace

Giving: Gimmick or Grace

Giving is an expression of worship that commemorates God's
grace. Grace is all that God can do for man and still be consistent
with His own character. We  are saved by grace, we live by His grace,
and we give by His grace. Grace giving meets divine standards and 
glorifies God. Grace giving requires the filling of the Holy Spirit and
reflects grace orientation, Bible doctrine resident in the soul, and virtue
love. Without these spiritual motivations, giving has no spiritual value.
All too often Christian giving is coerced by guilt, emotionalism, or peer
pressure. Two chapters in 2 Corinthians are the most extensive passages
of Scripture on the concept of giving. This book focuses on these chapters
which present aspects of God's grace, define correct motivation and mental
attitude for giving, and illustrate grace giving in the early church.

Our Commander

Follow The Colors
Down through the ages, military organizations employed
various types of flags, or "colors", around which soldiers could
rally amidst the confusion of combat. The battle cry, "Follow the
colors!" became the command to strike a mortal blow against the
enemy, to fight and attain the high ground---the place of victory.
Jesus Christ, the Supreme Commander, leads His battalions into
spiritual warfare. He unfurls the regimental colors of Bible doctrine
and calls for the royal regiment of the family of God to follow.With
knowledge of Bible doctrine resident in the soul, the believer charges
onto the battlefield of the angelic conflict. Wherever the colors lead, the
believer who follows will secure spiritual victory on high ground and 
accrue fantastic rewards in eternity.

Designed Just For You

The Faith-Rest Life

Faith-rest is the life of peace designed for you as a believer in
 the Lord Jesus Christ. This life is characterized by a moment -
by-moment tranquillity, happiness, and stability. But how can
you have this perfect rest when you are surrounded by pressure,
adversity, and disaster? God wants you to do only one thing----
trust Him! Believe His Word! Mix the promises from the Bible
with faith! If you trusted Him for the greatest thing He could 
ever provide---salvation, then you can trust Him for the lesser
things----solutions to your problems. When you use the faith-
rest technique, you stand on the solid ground of the Word of God.
 Bible doctrine becomes a living reality in every experience. No
matter what happens to you, no matter how difficult your problems,
you have " the peace of God which passes all understanding."

A Slender Thread

Dying Grace
Life hangs by a slender thread that can be snapped at any moment.
Does that thought frighten you? Cause you dread and panic?  God
did not design dying to be horrible or frightening for the believer in
the Lord Jesus Christ. To the contrary, God designed your dying 
moments to be the best, the sweetest part of living. In dying grace,
He graciously supplies every need to make this a time of supreme
happiness and tranquillity, as you anticipate meeting the Lord of
Glory face to face. Your dying moments are highly valuable to God
because they are His final opportunity to honor His infallible Word in
your soul. Bestowing dying grace demonstrates His divine approval.
With Bible doctrine, you appreciate all the fantastic blessings of
dying grace so that your dying moments are glorifying to God.

Confidence In God

Divine Guidance
Is the doctrine of determining God's will for your life. God
guides you by communicating His  will through divine revelation.
No believer can know or do the will of God apart
from knowing the Word of God. The Bible reveals numerous
 mandates that universally declare what the will of God is and
is not for every believer. The other intentions God has for your
individual life that are not directly stated in Scripture must be
determined from Bible doctrine in your soul. From the application
of Bible doctrine you will resolve what God  wants you to think, 
what He wants you to do, and where He wants you to go. Spiritual
growth and maturity supply confidence that you will know God's
design at any time and under every circumstance of life.

Eliminate Misery

Christian Suffering
Presenting the biblical perspective on suffering. Why do 
Christians experience pain, distress, and grief ? How does
God convert cursing into blessing ? These questions are 
answered in detail from the Scriptures. Understanding God's
reasons for suffering equips the believer to handle adversity.
He learns to identify and eliminate self-induced misery, which
is by far the most common from of human anguish. He also
learns to avoid divine punishment. Most important, he begins
to comprehend the  powerful assets God has given him for 
solving problems. Consistent use of these invisible problem-
solving devices under pressure accelerates his spiritual growth
and glorifies God to the maximum. No suffering in life is too 
great for the plan of God. The Christian must possess a thorough
understanding of suffering to persevere under pressure and advance
to spiritual maturity.

Wholeness

Christian Life Books

Christian Integrity

The strength of the advancing believer. Integrity means 
wholeness of character, consistency of word and deed,
uncompromising adherence to a code of  values. Christian
integrity comes from living by the Word of  God. Each
biblical command for the believer reveals an aspect of
God's grace, but all His grace provisions function together
as a single system of power and love. By understanding God's
plan as an integrated system, the believer can adhere to all God's
mandates. He can avoid distortions  that come from taking favorite
biblical principles out of  their doctrinal context. No part or parts of
God's system will function effectively if isolated from the system as
a whole. The  believer who lives within God's system of power and
love has Christian integrity.

of his prosperity. A great emptiness came into his life as he turned
away from the Lord, and he embarked on a pursuit of  happiness
to fill the spiritual void. Out of Solomon's frantic and fruitless search
comes a compelling  message for us: the message of the "apes and 
peacocks." The peacock with his strutting finery and the ape with his
power represent every amusement, every diversion, every possible
attempt to find happiness apart from the plan of God. As Solomon
eventually discovered only through fellowship with God and the pursuit
of His Word can the believer attain stability, contentment of soul, and a
true and enduring happiness.

Free Or Bondage

Slave Market of Sin
We think of ourselves as free, but we are born in an inescapable
slavery--- bondage to sin. As members of the human race we exist
in a slave market of sin, helpless to redeem ourselves. We enter the
world with a sin nature, separated from God and powerless to establish
a relationship with Him. We have no way to emancipate ourselves from
the captivity of our inherited depravity. However, the gracious plan of
God for mankind calls for a savior, a redeemer--- the Lord Jesus Christ --
to purchase our freedom from the slave market. Christ is the only person
qualified to make such a purchase. The only requirement for eternal release
from the slave market of sin is faith alone in Christ alone.

Book By R.B. Thieme Jr

The Lord is my strength and shield; my heart trusts in Him, and
I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him
in song.

Reveals God's provision for your salvation, His purpose
for your existence after salvation, and the treasures He has

God's Word  so that absolute truth becomes the measure of your
conscience, the source of your thinking, and the motivation of your
life. Empowered by the Holy Spirit and armed with Bible doctrine,

Positive Volition

Heathenism
Answers the questions, "What about those who have never 
heard the good news of salvation? What about primitive 
peoples who live far beyond the frontiers of civilization
and speck in obscure languages? What about those in any
 civilization or culture who have never had the chance to hear
the Gospel? "The reality is, God never overlooks the positive
volition of anyone. He provides abundant evidence by which
every individual can become aware of His existence. He over-
comes every obstacle to disseminate the Gospel to those who
seek Him. No one is hidden from His grace. His  divine
attributes guarantee the provision of Gospel information
 "even to the remotest part of the earth."

We Have The Messiah

The Blood of Christ

Links the New Testament with the Old Testament. God ordained
animal sacrifices in Israel to foreshadow the saving work of the 
promised Messiah, and for hundreds of years, the innocent animal
symbolically bore the guilt of sinner. When Christ came as the reality,
the promise was fulfilled. He became "the Lamb of God who takes away
 the sin of the world." For some believers, however, the blood of Christ
 has been associated with a lifetime of emotional experiences. They have
grown up with the idea that there was a special power in red liquid that
circulated through Jesus' mortal body. This mysticism is not biblical! The
 "blood of Christ" is a metaphor for His spiritual death in which He  received
the judgment that removed the penalty of sin.

Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.

Salvation Books

The Barrier

Is impassable and insurmountable, No human  being can break
though this obstruction. Mankind is born on the wrong side of
the barrier, hopelessly separated from any relationship with God.
God always knew that man through his negative volition would
alienate himself from his Creator, so in eternity past God the
Father designed a perfect plan to remove the barrier. He sent His
Son, Jesus Christ , to be judged for our sins on the cross, to bring
man from enmity to peace with God. And yet, even through Jesus
Christ removed the barrier, your relationship with God depends
on you. Only one issue remains: What do you think of Jesus Christ?
Only one decision separates you from God. If you believe in Christ,
you cross the line of separation and receive God's gift of eternal life.

There is NO charge for any material from R. B. Thieme, Jr.

Renew Your Mind

Learn
When you learn who and what Christ is, you can begin to
apply His thinking . God commands you to think divine 
viewpoint "by the renewing of your mind" so that His 
gracious purpose can be fulfilled in your life (Romans
12:2). God's purpose for you after salvation calls for
spiritual growth.

But grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior
Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day
of eternity. Amen. (2 Peter 3:18)

In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.
John 1:4

Christ Mind

Heaven
Is guaranteed to every believer (1 Peter 1:4-5). But the
quality and impact of the believer's life on earth depend 
on his execution of God's plan AFTER salvation. What 
is God's plan for you following your personal faith in 
Christ?  Learn and apply Bible doctrine and advance to 
spiritual maturity. The Bible reveals God's person and
plan. Bible doctrine is the content of the Word of God
and is called the ( mind of Christ) (1 Corinthian 2:16).
Doctrine communicates absolute truth and is designed
to become the measure or standard of your thinking.

The heavens declare the glory
of God, and the sky above proclaims His handiwork.
Ps. 19:1

Study To Show Thyself Approved

After Salvation, What?
Your decision is the most important of your life.
at a moment in time you believed in Jesus Christ 
as your Savior, the perfect Person judged as a 
substitute for your sins. From that instant of faith
alone in Christ alone, you have eternal life and share
the destiny of Christ.

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only
begotten [uniquely born] Son, that whoever believes
in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.
John 3:16

We will  do a Doctrinal Bible Studies  of Books that will
give you knowledge of what after Salvation.


Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find;
 knock and the door will be opened to you.

Freedom

Peace And Survival of A Nation

Why are you free right now? Because well-trained, professional
soldiers killed the enemy on the battlefield in World War II and
Won The WAR!
Since then, our military has not been permitted to pursue the enemy
to a decisive victory in the battlefield. We are losing our freedom by
default. The lives of our own boys are being sacrificed rather than 
the lives of the enemy! Many of you may not like hearing that; but 
there is one thing you would hate more-- and that is Slavery! You 
are free, but you are free because freedom has been purchased with
death of the criminal within, and the death of the enemy without.That
course of action is based on Bible doctrine, and that is Christianity!
That is honoring to the Lord Jesus Christ! When there is subjectivity
in the law enforcement or in the military, the effectiveness of both is
neutralized. There is a rise in the crime rate and the possibility of
war.

A study of Nehemiah describes God's viewpoint concerning the nation
that will survive militarily by following God's plan and we will suffer
the consequences if we do not make some changes quickly!

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own 
understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will
make your paths straight.
Prov. 3:5-6

Now In The Streets

Family

The family concept is right man and right woman functioning
in marriage and training children.  The  authority in the family
is invested in the parents. When a maximum number of children
reject the authority of their parents, then a situation develops such
as we have in our country today. We have youngsters on dope--a
rejection of authority; rioting in the high schools and colleges--a
 rejection of authority; criminals on the increase-- all rejecting
 authority! Do you know where it starts? in the family! It begins
with a rejection of the parents authority. That is why we have the
command, "Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may
 be long upon the land...." (Ex. 20:12). This is not only for the
individual, but is also a promise for the national entity. It says 
in fact that if children on a national scale are honoring their parents,
there will be stability in that nation.

(This Book was 1971 and revised 1973) 

Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for His 
compassion's never fail. They are new every morning. Great is
His faithfulness.
(Lam. 3:22-23)

God"s Principles

Marriage
God has designed one man for one woman-- the right man--
right women concept. The  opportunity to find the right one
and to enjoy this wonderful relationship requires freedom
of volition. Where a maximum number of people in a national 
entity reject the right man--right woman principle, as well as its
proper framework--Divine Institution #2- degeneracy sets in and
that nation begins to decline. In our country today, with the rise of
permissiveness and promiscuity and all the rest of it, there has been
a rejection of God's principles.

The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will 
take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He 
will rejoice over you with singing.
Zeph. 3:17
