Rediscovering Truth

We are Holiness People and are a part of a Holiness Church.  Someday Holiness will fill the earth.  The following are themes on Careful, Holy Living, Biblical Standards, and Critical Issues for Christians that with time I hope to address using Scripture, writings from leaders in the Early Church, and quotes and perspectives from men of God in church history.  I wish to give Early Methodist and Holiness viewpoints as well.  What has been the position of Christ's church throughout history on these points?  This will be a work in progress as I have time; I started sometime around 2009 and now have various unfinished works to add.  The following subjects will be linked to the research. More may be added or taken away.  I do not consider myself qualified, but I am seeing a nightmarish falling away and worse, even an antagonism against what used to be assumed as normal Biblical truths in the church.  May God bring the church back to a revival of Biblical and holy living!
