Words about God, Faith, and Biblical Study

Respect and Reverence of God is the Beginning of Wisdom

This section relates to spiritual matters. It is contains Bible studies, information and facts that you can use to grow spiritually and enrich your life.

I welcome contact from people who wish to help me by pointing our my various failures in logic, misuse of scripture, Bible study, facts or ignorance which they detect on these pages. Please don't send me statements about church doctrine (I've got enough of my own already; thanks anyway). I only want thoughts supported by Bible scriptures, reason and fact - including scientific fact. Please address your remarks to Jerry.

Here are the topics in this section
