7.7 Helpful Resources

We are so blessed to be able to follow on the good works of these wonderful men of God, true saints of Christianity which have come before us. We are blessed more than at any time in history to have such a wealth of information available to read and learn from.

I’ve found the resources/books listed below to be helpful to me and predominantly free of false teachings, but please note that I do not completely agree with or endorse all content in these resources. Discernment must be used when reading, recommending, and using any non-inspired resources written by man (including mine!).

There are many, many wonderful resources out there available for us today, but I’ve only included resources that I can vouch for personally as ones which will not lead you astray.

As mentioned in the “choosing a Bible” section, be especially wary of all commentaries, study bible notes and even the headings in your Bible added by man (the ones inserted in between chapters/sections in the Bible by the publishers). These are simply words of man and not inspired.

Any area dealing with eschatology (end-times) that have been published after the late 1800’s (with very few exceptions) are infected and corrupted badly with the “earthly millennium” false teaching (dispensational premillennialism). This note even applies to study bible notes in the area related to eschatology (e.g. first popularized with the Scofield Study Bible, among others).

Note that some of these books are out of print now and may be somewhat difficult to find. I do recommend also that read the edition of the book printed closest to the original author’s first date of printing as possible, as newer revisions offers an opportunity for editors and publishers to twist/distort the writer’s original content by introducing false doctrines/false teachings that match the editors/publishers’ viewpoints, which were not the original author’s.
