Rebuilding Civilization on the Bible: Author Jay Grimstead
Title: Rebuilding Civilization on the Bible: Proclaiming the
Truth on 24 Controversial Issues Author:Jay Grimstead Genre:Religion/Theology/Instruction Publisher: Nordskog Publishing, Inc.
False teachings threatening
to corrupt the Church forced the leaders to join in councils, where they
codified the orthodox teaching of the Bible into creeds received by the Church
as faithful distillations of Scriptural truth and as a bulwark against future
corruption. Error, heresy, and outright paganism are today common in churches
that were once sound. Even many “better” churches have little depth to their
teaching and are silent on critical issues of the day, and even in some
paganism masquerades as Christianity.
This book is the fruit of the work of hundreds of theologians and
Christian leaders working throughout a 37-year period to define and defend the
key Biblical points on 24 controversial issues — which would not even be
controversial if all believed like Jesus and Paul in the inerrancy of the
This book states the Bible’s position
on 24 controversial issues and explains why each document needed to be written.
It offers the global Body of Christ tools for reforming the Church and
motivating Christians to live in obedience to Christ and to all commands in the
Bible intended for us.
“We heartily invite all Christians on this planet who desire
to live in obedience to the Bible in all areas of life at all times, to form
themselves and their local churches into “United Spiritual Armies” at the city
and county levels, and to establish a network with other such churches and
“spiritual armies” at their state and national levels with the goal of making
Christ King of their cities and nation. We invite you to join with us in
applying these 24 DOCUMENTS to the life of the Church and in making 2 Cor. 10:5
a reality. By that we mean that together we are called by God to destroy
“speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and
we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.”
