About Us

Blog Mission Statement: We exist on social media to proclaim the gospel, center topics on Christ, love fellow believers, seek the lost, and pray for the world—all to the glory of Jesus Christ our Lord. (2 Cor. 5:20; Rom. 12:2; 1 Cor. 11:1; John 13:35; 1 John 3:16; Luke 19:10; 1 Tim. 2:1; Isa. 43:7)

Who am I? I am a Christian (Christ follower) pilgrim and a student/disciple of Christianity who was converted in the 1970’s “Jesus Movement”. I was a prodigal son for a period of time and have experienced the consequences of a wayward life. I found reconciliation and restoration with God and now live with that renewed relationship every day. I am always learning and growing in my love, faith and in my relationship with my “Abba” Father. My spiritual foundation is found in the traditional orthodox reformation heritage of historical Christianity. Briefly, we believe the following:

1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
3. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
4. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
6. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Truth2Freedom Blog Doctrinal and Position Statement (statement of faith and belief)

This blog provides alternative news, information, current events, commentary, opinion, theology and devotionals. I use this blog as an evangelism, discernment & mission activist blog. I search, research and post articles that will be of benefit and blessing. If my blog is able to positively inform, educate & help another person to either begin or grow in their relationship with The Lord – that’s enough for me. I have no ego involved in this blog nor am I desiring or seeking any form of financial compensation.

This blog is an independent resource, research and information site that provides a collection of various conservative Christian biased resources and information. The blog is dedicated to the glory of God and for the benefit of all who seek the truth that would set them free. If you are seeking for the truth about Jesus Christ, current events, news, and discerning insightful information or if you are a new Christian or a recommitted Christian – Welcome to our blog!

This blog is not affiliated with any company, group, organization, government agency or business. This blog is not led, guided or directed by any other organization, church, or ministry. This blog does not market any products or services. This blog is given as a free public service and spiritual ministry resource as an alternative to the spiritual deception in the world. This blog is an independent outreach that is committed first and foremost to the Lord Jesus Christ and the integrity of God’s Word – The Bible.

The Truth2Freedom blog purpose and mission is twofold:

1. The early church was married to humility, love, repentance/confession of sin, revival, true worship, prayer, poverty, prisons, and persecutions. Let us return to our foundational roots and principles of our fathers.

2. Today, the church is married to pride, prosperity, personality, and popularity! This blog was begun in response to the growing theological and ministerial dysfunctional and apostasy failures that is growing within many local churches.

The “dummying” down of America along with the “thought police” that control much of our social, educational and media systems need a response. My late father warned me of these happening years ago and I now seek to carry on these warnings to others today.

One of our major problems in America is that there are so few thinking Americans left. Most of the under forty crowd – which grew up on the Internet, video games, TV, movies and Facebook, spend more time texting than reading the bible or books or “thinking”.

Most have long since given their brains up to Hollywood, non-stop television “managed news” or other forms of entertainment, or have been so dumbed down by the public school system, government, mainstream media, Wall Street propaganda that they no longer have the ability to think, reason, discern, or protest when they are being robbed, manipulated, or enslaved by the powers that be.

This blog is my personal response to the declines mentioned above. This blog is an uncompensated labor of love given to help people in service and honor to The King to promote truth, knowledge, wisdom and understanding to this compromising/pragmatic lost generation. Defending and contending for the Christian faith along with proclaiming the truth in defense against the lies, deceptions, manipulations is the mission of this blog.

It is the divine image in every person (Genesis 1:26, 27) that gives life (people) an intrinsic dignity and worth—regardless of race, color, sex, age, or social standing. That’s what makes each person worthy of being rescued from life’s destructions and eternal damnation. The church is to be a hospital for the lost, sick and wounded rather than being a showcase display for the saints. This was once a dominant mission and vision of the church and Christianity for what we were to be and do — Let us believe in this again.

Only Two Religions!

I don’t know if you know this but there are only two religions in the entire world.

You might say I’m nuts.  There are hundreds if not thousands!

wearing masksBut there is one religion that likes to put on hundreds if not thousands of different masks on, and so ultimately there are only two: the religion of Human Achievement and the religion of Divine Accomplishment.

You see Islam, Mormonism, Buddhism, Catholicism, Judaism and every single religion that you have ever heard of, ultimately teaches some form of a works-based salvation. They say that you have to be a little more good than bad in order to make it to heaven. These religions encourage you to hand God a resume when you face Him one day. The resume will be filled with all your accomplishments. It will list everything you’ve done for other people, every penny you’ve given to charity and every good deed you’ve done. God will look over this resume and say, “Good job! You’ve made it into heaven”.

The problem is that if you were to enter into heaven because of a resume based on your accomplishments God would get no glory; you would be the one who gets all the praise. In fact, Ephesians 2:9 would say that salvation is not of works lest you patting-self-on-back-1should boast! Genesis chapter one shows us that God created the entire universe including you. Everything He created is designed to bring Him glory. The problem is that sin has entered the world, and from birth we all have replaced exalting God with exalting ourselves. Everything we do from birth is geared towards bringing us glory and bringing praise to ourselves. We all have a throne in our hearts that God should be sitting and reigning on, but instead we are born with ourselves sitting on it. We are so used to it we don’t even notice it to the point where we all think that our resumes are good enough to get us into heaven.

my mom thinks im coolOf course we are going to think that we are good people! Of course my mom is going to tell me I’m a good person! But what does your Creator think? He says in Romans 3:23 that we all have sinned and fall short of His glory. He also says in Romans 6:23 that the wages of sin is death. So if we stand before God and start listing accomplishments or hand Him a resume we might as well slap Jesus in the face because God is going to look at the resume and say, “I killed my only Son because you were not good enough to get to me!”

And that’s where the only other religion comes in.

The religion of Divine Accomplishment. God saw your situation, and decided that since man was so sinful and could not save himself, that He would come Himself and take the form of a man. He humbled himself, spent nine months in a womb he created, grew up with every temptation you and I face every day, but without sinning. He then died on the cross for our sins, and then rose from the dead and defeated death. He made it possible for human beings to stand before God one day and not hand Him a resume and condemn themselves further, but rather, tell God that they deserve His wrath but have placed their faith and trust in the work that Jesus did on their behalf on the cross and through His resurrection.

You see we need someone to be a substitute for us because no matter how hard we try, we can never bridge the gap between God and us. And the substitute can’t be merely a human.  It must be God Himself.

Do you see the difference between Christianity and every other religion?

“My Last Day” — the Jesus Anime

9 powerful minutes of animation that begins with a thief behind bars watching the scourging of Jesus, and it ends with the thief dying next to Jesus, and waking to see Him in a beautiful place.

The dying thief: What was so great about his faith?

There are many acts of extraordinary faith in the Bible. The one that has impressed me the most concerns the dying thief on the cross. We could take the approach that he had nothing to lose, so he decided to cast his lot with Jesus. But this makes absolutely no sense of the text and the context.
In this conversion we have a specific fulfillment of Christ’s first words on the cross. No sooner had Christ spoken the words, “Father, forgive them,” had the Father answered that prayer by turning a once-reviling criminal into a Christ-glorifying saint. While the soon-to-be converted criminal was not directly responsible for Christ’s death, he nevertheless joined with those who were and was thus indirectly addressed when Christ asked for God to forgive “them.”
Christ, the sinless one, was numbered with or counted among the transgressors (Isa. 53:12; Luke 22:37), all of whom have a bigger problem than the day-to-day sins they commit. They hate Christ, the God-man. Anyone who has a master other than the Lord Jesus hates him (Lk. 16:13; Gal. 4:8). That these two criminals loathed him is clearly manifested during the crucifixion: “And the robbers who were crucified with him also reviled him in the same way” (Matt. 27:44).
When the criminal who was converted was doing his worst against Christ, Christ was doing his best for this criminal.
The conversion of the one criminal was most extraordinary and testifies to the power of Christ’s prayer and the grace of God. Why?
This criminal’s faith did not come at a time such as when Christ turned water into wine; or performed miracles, such as walking on water, opening the eyes of a blind man, or raising Lazarus from the dead. No! The criminal believed on the Messiah while he was hanging as one cursed upon a tree. The criminal trusted in and boldly defended the one whose disciples had abandoned him. Jesus was at his lowest when this criminal asked to be remembered in Christ’s kingdom.
When he was on the cross, did anyone publicly cry out, as John the Baptist did, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” (Jn. 1:29)? But this is essentially what the dying thief did. Little wonder, then, that Christ should promise him a place in his kingdom: “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise” (Lk. 23:43).
The criminal acknowledged he was guilty; he acknowledged that Christ was not (“this man has done nothing wrong”); he feared God; but, and here is the key: the criminal did not merely want to be in a better place. He wanted to be with Christ in a better place: “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom” (Lk. 23:42). The criminal believed “against all hope”.
Heaven is a better place because that is where Christ is. Everyone wants to go to heaven, but not everyone wants to go to Christ’s heaven. Not so with this criminal: he saw, with his eyes, Christ at his worst; but with the eyes of faith, he believed that Christ would soon be at his best, and so put his faith in a dying king.
Christ is always – always! – willing to save even the most miserable of sinners. A recognition of guilt (Lk. 23:40) and a confidence in him and not ourselves (Lk. 23:42) will always lead to the most assuring truth a sinner can receive: the Savior welcomes such into his paradise!
“One is saved, and we may not despair; the other is lost, and we may not presume.” Spurgeon

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. I believe God directed me to your internet program. We are missionaries up in the mountains in the Philippines and facing some tough decisions with students in our Christian school. I found a wealth of information to help me counsel with the girls today. I want to read more from you and get more about some of the other subjects relevant to the struggles young people are facing today. God bless!
