We got this note from Betty:
I would like to know if your Beliefs has a name. I was in the Pentecostal Holiness Church. I find your site very interesting.
Our belief does have a Name – the Lord Jesus Christ – all praise to Him!
“But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, Who of God is made to us wisdom and righteousness and sanctification and redemption; so that, according as it is written, ‘He who glories, let him glory in the Lord’” (1 Corinthians 1:30-31 MKJV).
That’s the way it should be, you know. It’s not what we believe so much as WHOM we believe. Believing the Lord, we know the truth, and knowing the truth, we are set free.
“But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such to worship Him. God is a spirit, and they who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth” (John 4:23-24 MKJV).
Have you seen our Statement of Doctrine? The Lord has given us these beliefs. Though we have benefitted from the teachings of many, the essential truth is always given by God. Knowledge without His revelation, faith, and obedience is dead.

Why does the Gospel of Luke report a repentant thief on the cross with Jesus, when Matthew and Mark report both thieves railing on the Lord? The answer is simple: The Book of Luke has suffered the machinations of men who would subtly persuade their fellows to believe fables that deceive and enslave.
If Satan can sow tares among the children of God in order to sift them, why not a false story in the Word of God to do the same? Here is such a story, identified for what is by its nature and the fruit it produces.
It is not an easy or light thing to question an established and famous (albeit highly controversial) portion of the revered Gospels. Nevertheless, if we believe it does not belong in the Bible, it is our responsibility before God to speak up. The matter should be addressed by those who know better, for all our sakes.
