His life verse is Proverbs 3:5,6:

As we conclude this series, we must ask: Concerning the traditional view of eternal punishment, does it not in effect chop off the effect of the atonement of our Lord at the knees? Does it not LIMIT the power of the cross?
What about the early Church. Did the early Church fathers believe that God would torment someone for eternity? In this video of just under 12 minutes, we discuss this.

In our last segment of this series we learned that God’s punishment of the lost is for the purpose of correction, and will not last forever. But what about those in the Bible like the Pharaoh of Egypt. Doesn’t the Bible say that God hardened his heart? Does this mean that people like him who were designated as enemies of God never got a chance?
In Matthew 25:46 we see a passage that has been used for centuries to try to scare people into becoming believers. It says:
Matt 25:46 “And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
Is this speaking of Eternal torment or not? In this 14 minute video, we find the true explanation of this passage.

In the Old Testament, we have a perfect example of God RECONCILING one of the most arrogant and despicable enemies of God’s People – King Nebuchadnezzar. As Paul said “every knee will bow…every tongue will confess Jesus is Lord.” In this short 10 minute video we will examine this profound event!
In this 10 minute video session we look at why Gehenna has been mistranslated to “Hell” in most of our English Translations. We will also examine the parable of Lazarus and the rich man, and see why this MUST BE a parable, and is NOT a parable about Hell as many preachers have taught throughout the years.
Gen 12:3 I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Did you hear this promise? YES that’s right! God promised that by means of this servant, He would bless ALL families of the earth. This is a very profound promise. We will be exploring the implications of this promise throughout this series.
