Tell us a little about yourself. As a young Christian, not knowing the Bible, I had searched for years other denominations' and groups' teaching of the Word because I could not get answers from the Church I attended. I ended up with the Jehovah Witnesses and was involved with them for years as they came to the house and seemed very informed. These people do answer your questions, but unknowingly, myself and many others accept their doctrines, not realizing they are man's views and not Biblical truths. After some doubts came to me and I started reading my old Bible instead of theirs, I was introduced to the Holy Spirit who immediately started His work of setting me FREE! I have been teaching Bible studies ever since and praying for others caught-up in false teachings to be set free.
What was your motivation behind this project? My motivation in writing the book: One True God was to reveal the proof-texts of WHO JESUS REALLY IS. I feel this is the most important doctrine of the Church.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? The knowledge that Jesus is really God (The Word) in the flesh, and be able to explain it to others. Knowing who Jesus is will keep people from being deceived by the Cultists, who prey on God-loving people to get them into their Cult. All Cults teach something other than the truth of who Jesus really is.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I've become more zealous to teach Bible-truths.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I always pray for the Holy Spirit first to lead me into the truth of His Word before I open my Bible to study. My mind has been highly impacted by Joyce Meyer's teachings and the teachings of my pastor; Rev.Wilmont McCrary of the First Assembly of God Church in Sebring, Florida
