About

This website is dedicated to the proclamation of biblical truth, and to challenge and encourage Christians everywhere to also make their stand for truth. Jesus said that God’s word is truth (John 17:17). Therefore, anything that contradicts the Bible is in error, regardless of who or what the source is. If a famous theologian contradicts the Bible, he is in error. If a famous book by a famous author contradicts the Bible, it too is in error. If early church historians contradict the Bible, they are in error as well. If we would all get back to following this simple principle, there would be no need for hundreds of denominations and competing theological seminaries.

I am a non-denominational Evangelical pastor. This website follows the Bible only, not other books. This website follows God, not men. So, I encourage you to open your Bible as you research this site. Check everything out as the faithful Christians in Berea did with Paul (Acts 17:10-12). And, feel free to copy or download anything you like, because God’s truth is “free”. Thank you for visiting GodorMen.com.

  1. Like your site, and contents.
    My own site is (hopefully) like yours: sincere, honest, clean and tidy and has some things to think about.
    All to do with the days leading up to the return of Christ.
    I would love a comment back.

    My particular interest at the moment is showing the way through the Preterist maze. It has not been done conclusively yet, but what I call our bible ‘Toolkit’ should ‘dismantle’ their argument.

    Thanks, Michael.

  2. PROJECT TITLE: PURCHASING EQUIPMENTS FOR PRECAHING GOSPEL AND EVANGELISM IN MURERA LOCATION, RUIRU , KENYA .

    Our Mission
    Our mission is to Win the people to Christ Jesus, Build them in the ways of God and
    Send them to do the same to others wherever they will be. 2 Timothy 2:2 contains the words of Paul to Timothy “his son”, “and the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others.”

    Our Objectives

    * To evangelize and preach the gospel to the people
    * To disciple the people.
    * To reach the un reached through gospel and outreaches.
    * To direct the people as they face the challenges of life with courage in Christ and help them make prudent life decisions.
    * To train the people in effective evangelism and discipleship.
    * To send them to do the same to others wherever they are.
    * To expose the people to opportunities where they can exploit their talent/gifts.

    Our current strategies

    * To Win
    * To Build
    * To Send

    Why the all people?
    People and especially the youths are very sensitive yet vital in any society. They therefore need to be handled with care to ensure that they grow in the right direction to fulfill their destiny. At the same time, in their youth they are being raised to become strategic leaders in society. In meeting the spiritual needs of the youths, the body of Christ will need to understand the tastes of the young people and design programmes that are relevant to a young person’s heart and style yet keep him in the way of God and build him into being a mature, productive, and responsible God fearing adult. In this way, we can raise a generation that will be the turning point for our ailing communities, both in the African continent and world at large.
    As we have been working in this field for years, we have discovered that young people like staying in peer groups or clicks that help influence their behavior either positively or negatively. Influencing these groups positively is a perfect way of reaching the youth for
    Christ.

    Location
    Five talents church international ministry is based in Murera, in Ruiru, about 25 KM form the capital of Kenya . The population is over 300,000 people with majority being the youth. The area is prone to poverty and high late of unemployment making many people to engage in immoral activities but we can still reach them and bring them to the Christ but we too lack resources that will help us attract these people to the Christ. The larger part of Murera’s population are youths. Many of them have been raised in the harsh realities. As a result they are hardened at an early age and grow up knowing that they will end up just like their parents because they do not believe they can do anything useful with their lives. The result is rampant hopelessness. There is a need to break the vicious cycle of poverty and hopelessness. We need to reach these youth and let them know that there is hope out of their seeming hopeless situation. Hope in Christ Jesus.
    We believe that it’s only in Christ Jesus that we find fullness of life and fulfillment.

    The Need
    Jesus came that we might have life and have it abundantly. We believe life starts in Jesus
    Christ and ends in Him because in Him we have our being.
    Someone has to direct the hopeless to Christ the hope of glory, for it is in Him that we find hope, hope for a better tomorrow. Youngsters for Christ Team has taken this mantle, to reach these youth and bring them to a point of understanding that there is hope: hope in
    Christ Jesus.
    Secondly they need direction in their lives that will build them into faithful workmen both for their self development and the country’s development.
    It is with this at heart and in mind that we propose to under the building and development of a Youth Resource Centre. The Resource Center will be an opportunity to do exactly as Christ commissioned us “go ye into the entire world and preach the gospel unto every creature”.

    Our Current Strategies
    Evangelism – To win the people to Christ we have several activities already in place.
    Outdoor outreach – We hold outreaches within the community area once every quarter.
    Person to person and door to door evangelism – We hold this every month per the calenderized activities.

    School ministry – We are currently working with both government and private schools to reach as many youths with the gospel of Jesus Christ but we do this through hiring preaching equipments. We coordinate and undertake pastoral classes and Christian unions in the school. Team members who are high school graduates actively participate in the School ministry.

    Discipleship/ Training
    We undertake discipleship training programs to equip the new believers with the fundamentals of their new faith in Jesus Christ. On the other hand servant leaders training Seminar. This is mainly for the leaders in the team that equips the young people with skill on how to reach others and disciple them. On the other hand we have developed campus crusade for Christ training team. Lastly we hold weekly discussions on current issues. In our weekly program we have set aside the weekends to group discussions of subjects that inform, educate and enlighten people and youths in the day to day living in holiness.
    Bible study – a weekly activity current being handled by the leader’s who have already being trained.

    Evangelism and Discipleship training
    Our goal among many is to train the young people on how to Evangelize and
    Disciple others with the gospel of Jesus Christ using relevant materials applicable to today’s generation. Many young people are shy to witness Jesus Christ to their peers and family due to lack of proper exposure on how to witness effectively.
    The training programs will continue equip people and the youth with skill and tools on: -

    i) How to witness to fellow youths without feeling intimidated.
    ii) How to do follow-up of souls won and those almost won.
    iii) How to introduce the newly saved to the word of God and to prayer.
    iv) How to deal with various issues that may come up as they witness, pray and deal with different calibers of people.

    Proposed Ministry Sound/ Gospel program.
    In the past we have been borrowing sound system at high cost and many times we get let down due to faulty equipment. We propose to acquire full sound system for use in outdoor and indoor meetings, outreaches and crusades.

    Dear Brother,

    Greetings

    I am from Pakistan. I have studied your web site, and have found it to
    be one of many wonderful sites offered on the internet which gets to the
    Truth of the Word of God. As is the case with others whom I have
    contacted, you have created material which is full of knowledge
    concerning development of religious faith. Living in Pakistan, we
    Christians face many obstacles in getting access to God’s Word. Most
    people in Pakistan speak Urdu, and are not capable of understanding the
    English language. Because of limited access in our native tongue, my
    people have a true hunger for fresh Christian Perspectives.

    Proficient in both English and my native languages, I would like to
    offer my services as a translator to you. Presenting your material in
    both Urdu and Punjabi would be a true blessing to the Pakistani and
    Indian people. For a nominal fee, I will enable you to bring the message
    of Salvation to a most deserving people.
    Blessing you in advance for your consideration,

    In Him,
    Mehwish

  9. Super-Duper website! I am loving it!! Will be back later to read some more. I am bookmarking your feeds also

  10. Ann says:

    As a former Seventh Day Adventist where the Sabbath truth was taught along with so many of the other truths you share. I was surprised to find a non-denominational pastor teaching these truths. I was however somewhat alarmed by the absence of commentary on the identity and role of the 144,000 of the tribes of Israel. I know that some teach that the 12 tribes clearly indicated in Revelation 7.

  11. Laura says:

    Your site is a welcome relief from the false teachings of the “reformed” / Calvinist theology. God bless you!

  12. Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for (Muslims) is that they may be saved (Romans 10:1) That the (muslims) should be fellow heirsof the same body, and partakers of His promise in Christ through the gospel (Ephesians 3:6)

    AL NOOR GOSPEL MINISTRIES
    Post Box No:743 , Thrissur 680 005
    Kerala, India
    http://www.alnoorgospelministry.org- alnoorfmgm@gmail.com

    Greetings all of you in the name of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ
    I could understand True Glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ ministries through website.I thank God for This ministry.I am intrested to know more about this ministry and the Doctrine of TGGOJC

    I am Ali Philip, sabbath keeping born again Christian .I was seventh Day Adventist .Now I am Independent. Doing God`s work among the muslim community only. Intrested starting Church ministry also .writing this letter to you seeking your precious help for evangelisam among the muslims and Church ministries too in Kerala,India.

    I was born and brought up in an Orthodox Sunni Muslim family. In the early childhood I was put in the Madrassa and got trained to live in the fear of Allah and to observe worship on 5 times daily and to follow all other rituals. My father was a merchant and mother’s family also of spiritually rooted in Islam. Among her brothers one was a Mosque Secretary and others were in business and some others were in gulf countries. Because of all these we were financially well off.

    A small booklet on human heart showed me who I am. Then on I started reading the New Testament. The verse “Come unto me and I will give you rest” opened my heart. While reading the scriptures I began to experience inner peace and happiness and some kind of cooling effect for the heart which I did not get through the Quran and its rituals and fastings and worships. Since the Bible was giving me answers for all my problems and questions, I started studying the scriptures more deeply and comparing it with the Quran. I felt astonished through this study because the God in the Bible was entirely different from the Allah of the Quran. I saw Jesus is the Truth and the way and the life for me. He became my Redeemer who connected me with the heavenly Father.

    When I saw Jesus, I found my sins most clearly and began to repent of my sins. My sin bearer Jesus was very close to me and I saw my salvation in the cross of Jesus. I accepted Him as my personal Saviour.

    At this moment a great desire germinated in my heart that I must reveal this truth to my Muslim brothren. But that brought me to face serious trials from my family. I was severely beaten, hospitalized by my friends, even doctors left me telling that the chances for my survival were zero percent. But in the hospital bed in one night I saw the Lord Jesus face to face. He healed me completely on that same night. The next morning doctors could not believe what they saw. I left the hospital with perfect health.

    My Christian friends did not allow me to stay in my native place any more. I resigned the job and joined in a Bible Seminary. After the completion of the Seminary Course, I started the work among the Muslim brothren with the help of different Christian denominations. Several tracts and booklets and trimonthly bulletin also were published to reveal the Lord and Saviour to this people group.

    The Al-Noor Ministries is organized in humble faith so that through which the sincere souls from the Muslim community also may come to the light of salvation that is freely offered in the Lord Jesus Christ. According to the 2011census there are about 113 lakhs of Muslims in Kerala. They have not heard the gospel truth so far. “Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest,” (John 4:35 ). “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the labourers are few. Therefore, pray the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into His harvest” Mathew 9:37, 38. “Whom shall I send, and Who will go for us?” Isaiah 6:8. “How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent? Romans 10: 14, 15.

    There are 113 lakhs of Muslims living in the 14 district of Kerala. The southern most state of India. We Have now come forward with a new project with the aim of carrying the message of salvation to every muslim family in Kerala.

    Our plan is 2012 , Visit 25000 Muslim families , Distribute Book lets,Tracts and Bible in 14 districts in Kerala.

    Thank you

    Yours Faith fully
