Behold A White Horse
Designed to bring you closer to God and the true primitive Christianity begun by Jesus through understanding scripture and prophecy.
Religion today is in very real danger of crumbling under the weight of perception and public opinion. Atheism, agnosticism, and disenchantment are all on the rise. Religion suffers attacks from within and without. It is also viewed as being archaic, out of touch in addition to being a source for a great deal of abuse. It is, unfortunately, true that religion, by its very nature, has brought a lot of this upon itself and as a consequence of this much of the message, specifically the prophetic message, is being lost.
But religion is not faith, nor is church a building or a brand denomination. Religion is nothing more than the man-made rules and structures that have grown up and surrounded the simple truth of faith, belief and understanding.
Through the pages of this blog I intend to explore the simple truth and simple church brought to us by Jesus. In finding the church that Jesus founded, unhindered by man's rules, we will be able to find the truth to the prophetic messages of the Bible and a simpler, truer way to live.
I hope you will enjoy taking this journey with me and feel free to comment or share your own stories.

Smith was, allegedly, told that none of the churches of the time were the true church and I would venture to say that remains true to this day. Now, I've never had any kind of visitation from God or Jesus but I do have a close, personal relationship with Them - the kind that the Bible speaks of frequently. As a result of that in addition to my own personal research and much study of the Bible I too believe that there is no such thing as 'the true church' in the manner that we think of it today.
God, through Jesus, did establish a church on earth. But it wasn't a denomination or a building or anything like man's rigid structures that have been placed around the true faith. Dogma and the rigid church rules that are so prevalent today simply have no part whatsoever in the pure and simple faith that Jesus and the Bible teaches.

The Bible tells us clearly that God uses natural disasters as a way of imparting a lesson to His people. As a way of reminding His people of His ultimate plan for all mankind. So does that mean that every thunderstorm or earthquake is an act of God? Well, this is where things get a little complicated because the answer is yes and no.
The first thing we all have to remember is that God created nature. Nothing happens on this planet that God is not ultimately in control of completely. However that doesn't mean that He deliberately sends a disaster just to see His people suffer without cause. That's not the way of love so we know immediately that it is not the way of God.

The modern sense of 'church' only developed with the Roman Emperor Constantine who wanted a readily recognizable body that would help him to unify the increasingly disorganized Roman Empire. He was, in a very real sense, the true founder of what we now call the Catholic Church. However it is vitally important to understand that Constantine's motives in this were not spiritual but political.
