The Truth

The Truth

I hear so many people say that they are seeking the truth about God as if the truth about God is a mythical journey. It is not. I also hear a lot of people tell me about God and readily admit they have never read the Bible. Isn’t that like telling people about George Washington or Martin Luther King without reading their respective biography? It wouldn’t be correct. It would merely be what you heard others say without any examination of your own. I suspect some of what you would hear would be fact while other would be fiction. So where does that leave you with your quest to know the true God?

The Beatitudes

The Beatitudes
Matthew 5:1-12

During the course of this year (2014) each inmate to whom we write will receive a lesson regarding the beatitudes with his or her monthly mailing. It is our desire to help every inmate develop a life devoted to prayer and Bible study, focusing their attention on renewing their minds with Bible study focused on a personal relationship with Christ and their fellow man through Biblical instruction and prayer. One of the missions which the Lord presented The Forgiveness Foundation with this year is to raise up a team of prayer warriors within the prison system. We have already asked several inmates to begin praying for revival within their prisons, revival in our land and this world.

As I prepared this lesson it occurred to me that some of our website visitors may enjoy this series of teachings on the Beatitudes so I decided to include it on the website.

The Lord's Prayer Lesson 1, Relationship and Worship

The Lord’s Prayer
The Model Prayer
Matthew 6:9-13
Lesson 1: Relationship and Worship

Our first lesson on the Lord’s Prayer is limited to verse 9 because the verse needs to be meditated and reflected upon. This verse identifies God and establishes the relationship between God and the person praying. Do you view God as your heavenly Father or are they just words you recite? Has the Lord’s Prayer become a convenience for you, allowing the words, like so many memorized recitals, to pass through your mind without a conscious thought of their true meaning?

Prayer Thought 2

Jesus' Thoughts On Prayer 2

The word Christian means to be Christ like, that is, to take on the characteristics of Jesus – inwardly and outwardly.One characteristic of Jesus Christ that is sited universally is love. Love is described in 1 Corinthians 13 and Jesus tells us to love everyone. “But I (Jesus) say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you...”   (Matthew 5:24, ESV)  If you are having a problem forgiving someone, you have a love problem.Is there someone in your life who has wronged you and you can’t let go of that hurt, follow the words of Jesus, pray for them, pray that they be blessed upon their greatest imagination, and watch what Jesus does in your life.

Think Like Jesus Chapter 2

Think Like Jesus 2013: Chapter 1

Think Like Jesus 2013
Chapter 2: Temptation The Path to Sin

If you are a parent, you probably remember Christmas Eve. Do you recall just how hard it is to get excited children to bed? Can you remember the pressure building knowing that a bicycle, a bicycle in a box, a bicycle in a box is waiting for you to put it together, to put it together quietly, quietly before morning, and placing it under the Christmas tree? Remember deciding to leave the assembly instructions in the bicycle’s box. Do you remember taking the bicycle apart and retrieving the instructions from the box before you put the bicycle together correctly. Are you like Adam? He actually read the instructions and decided to ignore them.

“The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it. And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, ‘You may surely eat of every tree of the garden, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.’”   (Genesis 2:15-17, ESV)

Carbon Dated Camels Prove What!

Carbon Dating Camels - Prove What??

Scientists recently claimed to have carbon dated camels to establish the year they were domesticated. Their discovery, they claim, proves the Bible is historically inaccurate. The Bible isn’t about domesticated camels – it is the story of the perfect gift – the gift of salvation - the story of Jesus the Christ.

Prayer Life: The Lords Prayer

Prayer Life: An Introduction

Prayer Life
Review of the Lord’s Prayer

During 2013, The Forgiveness Foundation Christian Ministries is introducing a new learning tool on our website. The new tool is entitled “Prayer Life” and is intended to help you communicate with the Lord. God wants a personal relationship with you through His Son, Jesus Christ. Prayer is how we communicate with God and the following is the how Jesus taught His disciples to pray. The following scripture is found in the Book of Matthew chapter 6, verses 9-13.

Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.Your kingdom come,your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread,and forgive us our debts,as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.”   (Matthew 6:9-13, ESV)
