Wow... that's going to blow the socks off... to know that most are missing the mark by guarding and defending doctrines. The doctrinal disputes are a distraction - albeit an affective one. Doctrines are touted as being the fabric we are knitted together in as the body - totally false. The fabric is the loving and obeying Christ and loving and caring for each other. It has been the joy of my life to see it possible and experience it every day.
Unless otherwise noted, all Bible verses on this site are taken from the King James Version (because it's not copyrighted). Language, grammar and punctuation are updated, comparing other translations and taking care not to change any meanings.
Citations from the early church fathers are referenced, and the references can be read online at EarlyChristianWritings.com and CCEL.org. I often update the language on these, too, doing my best not to affect even possible meanings.
All unattributed images on this site are either mine or known to be in the public domain.
This web site, like all published works, can be quoted without permission as long as the quote constitutes "fair use," an undefined legal term. Usually, quotes should be limited to a paragraph or two, and the law dictates that quoting more than 50% of a document is a copyright violation.
