What was your motivation behind this project? We are engaged in addressing and responding to false beliefs and claims about God outside the church on a daily basis. False teaching also rises inside the church and the Lord Jesus was concerned about that (Matthew 7:15-23) and Paul charged the Ephesian elders to prevent false teachers from entering as well as those which would rise up from within (Acts 20:28-31). Our motive was two fold. First, it is a theme throughout the Hebrew Scriptures, the Lord address and is touched on in nearly every New Testament book. Second, we had to answer a question. If we don't have the integrity to address false teaching invading the church don't we give up the right to address false beliefs and religions outside the church?
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? The essential doctrines of the faith, the nature of God, man, sin, salvation, inspiration and inerrancy of Scripture must be taught, understood and central in the life of the Christian and the church which is the Body of Christ. The proper understanding of them brings our focus on God and removes the focus from ourselves.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I was reminded afresh of those who took time to not only teach the word of God to me but to model a walk of faith. My friend, the late Norman Geisler who was a humble servant and a great mind for the faith. Dr. H. Wayne House, Dr. RIchard G. Howe, my pastor who with a genuine pastors heart faithfully teaches the word, is gentle and honest in his critiques of our writing. My wife, Joy, the better part of our marriage and walk with God. As we worked on this project I was impacted on how these and so many others were used by God to care about me enough to keep me accountable. Heresy of this magnitude spreads through the church because too few are willing to care enough to call friends and leaders to task.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? The influences and inspirations have been many and varied. My wife's grandfather began praying for my salvation and that I would be a pastor when I met and began dating his granddaughter. I was an atheist. He prayed for six years and after I came to the Lord, he arrived at the next family outing with a box of Bibles, commentaries and other resources. We never knew he was praying for me until that day. I learned the power of being faithful in prayer. My favorite authors are many and varied, Dr. Norman Geisler and Dr. James Sire, Francis Schaeffer and others who believed loving the Lord with our mind was just as important and part of the "Greatest Commandment" as our heart and soul. Chuck Swindoll who taught me how to live in grace. Dave Hunt who was unafraid to expose false teaching for the protection of the flock.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Discipleship is often thought of as something that is done in 9 or 10 lessons for an hour a week. It isn't. It is observation and imitation of others over a long time. All of us are discipling and being discipled. We are discipling well or bad but we are discipling. What we read, who we spend time with, how we act when others are watching and when we are alone are all elements of our life of faith. They are each aspects of our discipling and being discipled. What we do speaks so loudly that others may not hear what we are saying. May we be observed being faithful to Him Who called.
