Joined 4 years ago from Hollywood, Florida
I began life as a Jew in a Reformed Jewish family, who never spoke the name of Jesus, except passingly, almost in whispers, and hastily changing the subject. But I heard the name as a child, which created curiosity.
As a teenager, I began to read the scriptures, and at 23 declared a belief in Jesus Christ, and was baptized at an Assembly of God church that no longer exists on East 21st Street in Hialeah, Florida. That began an odd odyssey of twists and turns through a variety of Christian denominations, disparate doctrines, and repeated disappointments in discovery that the teaching did not conform to God’s word.
I also strayed and became entangled in worldly nonsense for many years. But after bringing my attention to rest firmly on my absolute dependence on God, through a process during which I was practically rendered a madman, God saved me and made of me what you have today: a man who knows that there is nothing better in Heaven or on Earth than to be united with the Spirit of God and Jesus Christ, who in short order will bring the madness of mankind to an end with the advent of the kingdom of God.
Three years ago, God showed me that He is very serious about what Christ spoke in Matthew 25:31-46, and so I have incorporated, with the help of friends, a 501(C)3 public charity, which we intend to develop in order to do God’s will, called End Starvation Foundation. You could read about it at the foundation's website.
And about a year and a half ago, He gave me the book Lies of the Shepherds, the lion’s share of the royalties from which will go to fund the foundation.
We who believe in Christ are all called to be his ambassadors (2 Corinthians 5:20), and to grow into a ministry in connection with the interests of his kingdom (Ephesians 4:11-16). That may not be your present, but I pray that it will be in your immediate future, so that our paths will conjoin to result in unity in God and Christ. Lies of the Shepherds means to clarify the truth of God’s word, to facilitate our mutual conformation and adaptation to God’s will, resulting in eternal blessing in God and Christ.
