New book published!

I'm at the starting stage of writing an entire Bible teaching series, which I have named: 'Seeking the Everlasting Gospel Teaching Series.' The book title 'In the Beginning' (recently published on July 25th, 2017) is actually my third published book, and I found it necessary to cover, therein, the controversial topic of 'metaphors' of the Written Word to purposefully set the stage for all other books which will follow afterwards ... But, why is the topic controversial? A lot of folks don't actually believe that the Word of God is dashed with idioms, parables, similitude's and figures, seeing as such an idea just may harm the literalism which many declare is the 'simplicity of Christ.' And yet (as I point out in this third book), even Jesus boldly declared that He hid His messages behind the institution of metaphors to purposely hide truths from some who merely want to use the Word for self-promotion and worldly gain - seeing as such a thing could be a usurping tool to become a king themselves! Therefore, knowing this, we can easily see that when God's Word is being mishandled, in such a horrid way, that it's not the actual truth being used to fool those poor, misguided people; but is, instead, only a pale, man-made religious substitute that will never actually bring life to their listening audience ... The blind shall lead the blind into a deep ditch! ... But, thankfully, God has preserved His pure Word unscathed for those who actually have a love for it, and an actual love for Him ... All this is not saying, however, that God didn't create this world and universe literally and physically as it so declares in Genesis chapter 1; but, as we will see, the Spiritual creation was made along with, and at the same time, as the Natural creation - for, what we read naturally therein also has a metaphoric counterpart (by using the same exact words) that describes our own, personal Spiritual creation, which actually shows us that while God was creating a temporal existence in this natural universe, that He was also creating eternal existences for His children ...

Profile Information

Ted Roberts has not only sat under an extremely gifted ministry during his youth, but he has also been studying the Written Word of God, along with History, for the past 30 years. Wishing to search, meditate on, and examine the Written Word as much as possible, and as in-depth as possible (along with historical documentations that actually complement the Divine Text) the author's wish is that he can please his Lord in the quest of helping others to understand the richness of God's vast repertoire, and to help people travel the road that the Apostle Paul explains as thus: Ephesians 3:17-19 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
