 Dear Friend,

 **IF** materialism, money, sex, drugs or psychology could produce lasting happiness, peace of mind and a sense of fulfillment, then America would be full of "excited" people. I’ve been out there in the "real world" where they "eat their young," and I know exactly what I am talking about. I’ve known the miserable feeling of waking up "the morning after" feeling terrible, with emptiness and guilt as my constant companions. However, on the cold winter night of December 10, 1985 something happened that forever changed my life. The "old" Bobby Richardson died at mile marker 7 on Interstate 55 in south Mississippi. It was there that a past of miserable failures and shame was buried. The things I once tried so desperately to find fulfillment in, I now have no desire for, and some of the things I once had no desire for, I now embrace. My life was transformed at mile marker 7 that night, and I will never be the same again, thanks to the delivering power of our long suffering God! For me, it took more than merely accepting Christ and shaking a preacher’s hand.

This "new birth" or "baptism" (infilling) of the Holy Ghost transforms lives and delivers people "cold turkey" from all sorts of spiritual and physical bondage and addiction!" Drug addicts, alcoholics, liars and prostitutes, to name a few, find that the power of the Holy Ghost is sufficient to deliver and heal with absolutely no withdrawal symptoms whatsoever!

Today, I am a non-denominational layman who teaches (and participates in) "open" Bible studies. Instead of using material that has been prepared by some organization or religious denomination, I encourage people to use only their Bible. Personally, I use the authorized King James Version of the Holy Bible, and have found the Bible is NOT complicated **IF** studied openly and independently ... with no preconceived ideas or opinions.

Since 1986 I have been offering a $10,000.00 REWARD to any priest, clergyman, layman or "professing" Christian in an effort to provoke serious, but "independent" Bible study and research. I am convinced that the majority of "professing" Christians have been so indoctrinated that they've accepted a doctrine that has absolutely no "specific" Bible authority, but is the works of man and is as phony as a "three dollar bill."

Friend, believe it or not, this world is coming to an end! We’re warned that in the last days there will be vast deception. And I think it’s safe to say that we’re living in the "Last Days", don't you? When that long awaited trumpet sounds, I believe God will be VERY upset with those who trampled in the blood HE shed at Calvary, and rejected the work He did there. I also believe He will be VERY upset with the "professing" Christians who "talked the talk" but who did not "walk the walk." It is true, Jesus is our Advocate right now. But on that day, He will be our Holy Judge!

I have an on-line non-denominational Bible study entitled "Seven Undeniable Beliefs of the New Testament Church." If you or someone you know would be interested in examining it, you can visit my other web site at: Bible Study

Since 1986, I’ve been offering a $ 10,000 Reward in an effort to get serious, but independent thinking, Bible students back into the Bible to seek out “Scriptural answers” regarding a very important issue ... the New Testament Christian water baptism. This reward is meant to provoke serious, but independent study that is based upon the preponderance of Scriptural evidence of the “foot print followers” of Jesus Christ and the “original” (First Century) New Testament Church, Leaders, which is found written verbatim upon the pages of the Holy Bible. Also, I very actively and aggressively encourage independent thought, along with the independent Bible study, based upon this preponderance ... and NOT based upon any of the myriad of ideas, opinions, theories, creeds, doctrines, traditions, commentaries, “other books” OR “Later Writings” of man, that are floating around, out there. The Holy Bible is NOT complicated! And, neither is the New Testament Christian water baptism, NOR the New Testament Plan of Salvation. Instead, it is my firm conviction that it is precisely due to this myriad of “other stuff”, floating around out there, that there are literally THOUSANDS of religious organizations and denominations in existence, today, and so much division, contention and confusion.

Although many have tried, over the years, not a single person has been able to find, and produce, the “verbatim” Scriptural proof necessary to claim the following $ 10,000.00 REWARD. Also, there is another widely held belief, that evolved about 200 years AFTER Jesus’ death, burial, resurrection and ascension, and the passing of His “foot print followers” and the “original” (First Century) New Testament Church Leaders, which went on to become the official “core” doctrine of the “universal” church of Rome, in 325 A.D. And, as a result of this $ 10,000 Reward, many have had an opportunity to see for the Truth for themselves regarding the New Testament Christian baptism, as well as the widely accepted belief, which has been accepted by millions as a legitimate Bible doctrine, is actually just a “theory” (and a very seriously flawed one, at that). At any rate, here is the reward:


$10,000 Reward:

Offered to anyone who can find ONE scripture in the authorized King James Version of the Holy Bible TEXT:

(1) with the word "TRINITY" in it;

(2) which contains any one of the following “KEY” phrases (designated within the “quotation marks”, below) that people have been indoctrinated and taught to use in their description of ... and/or reference to ... God, or the Godhead:

a) "TRIUNE GOD"
b) "God IN THREE PERSONS"
c) "God THE Son"
d) "God THE Holy Spirit" (or "God THE Holy Ghost"); OR

(3) where anyone was baptized any where in the New Testament with the following “words” from Matthew 28:19 repeated over them, “in the NAME of the Father, AND of the Son, AND of the Holy Ghost”. (These "titles" are used by virtually every religious denomination and/or independent, autonomous, congregation, today, including BOTH Catholics and Protestants, regardless of whether they baptize by sprinkling or complete immersion).

If you would like to inquire, discuss or debate this: Let's Start Here


  What about Matthew 28:19?

  Acts 2:38, Acts 8:16 and Acts 19:5 PROVE beyond a shadow of a doubt what the proper interpretation and application of Jesus’ "Great Commission" of Matthew 28:19 is, as these are documented examples of baptisms which were performed by those who knew precisely the correct mode and formula. In the first example, Matthew was standing right there when Peter uttered those famous words of Acts 2:38. It is important to keep in mind that Jesus gave Peter the "KEYS" to the kingdom, and that Jesus often spoke in parables to enlighten those "who had ears to hear."

According to the Bible, MILLIONS have been baptized WRONG! This is just too incredibly unbelievable for many to accept. But, I am so confident that this is the case that I have put my money where my mouth is! I’ve challenged EVERYONE who embraces the theory (that evolved about 200 years AFTER Jesus’ earthly ministry and went on to become the official doctrine of the church of Rome in 325 A.D. at the Council of Nicaea) known worldwide as the "trinity." My hope is that this challenge will cause people far and wide to STUDY their Bible and dig into Church History to find out for themselves what the Truth in its entirety according to God's Word "really" is.

SOMEONE HAS TO SAY THIS: Unauthorized changes were made in 325 A.D. when Emperor Constantine and his "scholars" introduced the doctrine of the "trinity" to the world, and established it as the official doctrine of the church of Rome ... with the emperor being its head.

This doctrine defines God as being THREE separate and distinct "PERSONS" (plural) who are each coequal, coexistent and coeternal to one another. Yet, trinitarians insist that these THREE SEPARATE AND DISTINCT CO-EQUAL, CO-EXISTENT AND CO-ETERNAL "PERSONS" are somehow ONE ... NUMERICALLY! **IF** their "God the Father" and "God the Holy Spirit" are SEPARATE PERSONS as they insist, then their "God the Father" would NOT be the Father of the Christ Child according to Matthew 1:18 and Matthew 1:20.

My friend, the ONLY distinction in the Godhead I have been able to find in the Bible is SPIRIT and FLESH ... NOT three separate and distinct "PERSONS" functioning as ONE! God is a SPIRIT (St. John 4:24) and a spirit does NOT have flesh and bones (Luke 24:39). God is the WORD (St. John 1:1) and the WORD was made flesh (St. John 1:14). God was manifest (revealed, made known) in the flesh (1 Timothy 3:16). It was NOT the body (flesh) of Jesus Christ that was God, but rather the Spirit of Almighty God that dwelled in the sinless body born of a virgin (St. John 14:10). As a man (the flesh side - Son), Jesus knew pain, hunger, thirst, etc. As God (the Spirit side - Father), Jesus forgave sins, healed the sick, performed miracles, walked on water, raised the dead, etc. Because of this "dual nature" which Jesus had, there were times when the FLESH spoke, AND there were times when the SPIRIT of Almighty God spoke. However, the "three persons" theory of Rome has been so successfully indoctrinated that hardly anyone questions it today.

I am a father, a son and a husband. But, none of these TITLES is my name, and I am NOT three different people! These are separate and distinct positions, roles or offices that I occupy and function in, as ONE PERSON! At times I speak and function as a father. At times I speak and function as a son. And at times I speak and function as a husband. Each position, role or office that I occupy has completely separate functions, and completey separate purposes, but there is never any confusion as to how many "persons" I am.

There is a TREMENDOUS difference in ONE PERSON (singular) occupying or functioning in three separate positions, roles or offices (plural), and that of "THREE SEPARATE AND DISTINCT PERSONS" (plural) sharing the glory of the Godhead and functioning as the ONE True God of the Bible.

Furthermore, when I embraced the trinitarian theory myself, I couldn't Biblically separate their God the Father and God the Holy Ghost and make TWO SPIRITS in order to establish them as two separate "persons" ... and I’ve haven't met another trinitarian who can do it either. There is much I have to say about this, but you can read that in my non-denominational Bible study.

You might accuse me of "splitting hairs" about invoking the NAME of Jesus at water baptism, but we are told in Colossians 3:17 that whatsoever we do in WORD or DEED, to do all in the name of the Lord Jesus. Furthermore, God had a plan for building the ark that was "specific" and essential, and He had a plan for building the tabernacle in the wilderness that was "specific" and essential. I am not aware of either of these plans allowing for any deviation whatsoever. Likewise, God has a plan for Water Baptism which is "specific" and essential, and I am convinced that the "foot print followers" of Jesus Christ had it right! The theory that emerged in 325 A.D. Rome can not be found being taught or practiced in any of the New Testament writings, as it is being taught and practiced today by virtually every religious denomination. However, there is a people who still embrace the Apostles' One God Monotheistic Doctrine, and who will not compromise concerning it!

.

 Which do you prefer, Truth or tradition?

 I have absolutely NO malice or animosity in my heart towards trinitarian people. I know the TRUTH shall remain when everything else has vanished. However, some "die hard" trinitarians VICIOUSLY attack me because I dare question their THEORY of the Godhead and point out its many SERIOUS flaws. However, every once in a while I run across a person who is really a "seeker of truth," and who isn't afraid to lay aside their indoctrination and independently search the Word of God for the "real deal." These are the men and women who have the courage to admit error when the Bible does not agree with their theology. Then they gladly make whatever corrections or adjustments that are necessary to be in full compliance with the Apostles' One God Monotheistic Doctrine. Their love for God and His Word allows them to just get over it and get on with it!

It isn't hard to PROVE where the trinitarians doctrine originated, when it originated and by whom it originated. Even though most insist that it come directly from the Bible. But **IF** God was triune or **IF** there was a trinity of THREE separate and distinct co-equal, co-eternal and co-existent PERSONS in the Godhead, certainly the Bible should so state somewhere! But since the Bible does NOT so state, or give any SPECIFIC authority for such a belief, MILLIONS are told it is a "MYSTERY" which cannot be explained or fully understood, and must be accepted by faith. You may accept that. I once did myself. But there came a time in my life when I needed answers to questions about the trinity and water baptism. And I was not afraid of what I was about to learn when I began to independently search it out!

Most of my own family are trinitarians, and I love them DEARLY. However, I will not deny or compromise the revelation God has given me through His Holy Word about the Apostles' "One God - Monotheistic Doctrine." My friend, I learned a long time ago to speak where the Bible speaks and remain silent where the Bible is silent. I recommend you do the same.

I once was a trinitarian, but now I am a One God, Apostolic, Tongue Talking, Holy Roller, Baptized, Born Again, Heaven Bound, Believer in the Liberating Power of Jesus Name, who is NOT ashamed of the Gospel of Christ: for it is the POWER of GOD unto SALVATION to EVERY ONE that believeth.
