Welcome to this Website 

My name is Alan Finch. As a Christian, my Spiritual understanding and my Spiritual beliefs use to be much different than they are now. During my many years as a Christian (42 years), it has been through my observations, and through my experiences that have inspired me to search the Scriptures more diligently, which has changed a number of my earlier Spiritual beliefs.

Below are a couple of paragraphs that I read somewhere, which are wonderfully stated.

(If the Written Word shatters cherished beliefs, we then should be willing to be shattered, no matter how painful it is. Isn't God's Truth more important than personal belief? Isn't loyalty to God's Truth more important than loyalty to traditions, the commandments of men, or our local Church?

We need to carefully examine ourselves and ask where our loyalties rest. Have we believed and practiced something just because our Church or Pastor said it was Biblical Truth without our putting forth the effort to examine the Scriptures very carefully for ourselves to see if what we are being told is indeed Biblical Truth.)

 

There are a number of widely held beliefs in the present-day Christian Church, which years ago began to raise questions deep inside me about whether or not some of the most widely held beliefs in the present-day Christian Church are even Biblical? In fact, some of these beliefs that began to raise questions deep inside me, are so widely held and accepted by the mainstream Christian Church, that it seems to have not occurred to most present-day Christians to even question some of the most widely held and accepted beliefs in the present-day Christian Church.

I wanted to find the truth "from" God's Written Word about questions that had risen deep inside me concerning certain widely held beliefs in the present-day Christian Church. Through diligent search of the Scriptures, I share my findings in some articles that I have written.

It is usually very difficult to unlearn what we have been taught to be the Gospel truth, only to discover that what we have been taught is not the Gospel truth!

When I became a Christian, I immediately became hungry for God's truth. This hunger for God's truth instilled within me a hunger for God's Written Word, because God "reveals" His truth "through" His Written Word. If we are not hungry for God's Written Word, then we must not be hungry for God's Truth.

(The road that leads to Spiritual truth is no smooth road!)

It is very clear from the Scriptures that the most important thing to the Lord is "His" truth! Therefore, we can be sure that Satan gets his greatest pleasure from perverting God's truth.

Over the centuries, Satan has been very successful at perverting God's truth which has made it's way into the Christian Church to such a degree, that it is quite shocking and alarming at how much the Christian Church has let down it's guard.

One of the great Spiritual truths that I have come to realize in my 42 years as a Christian, is that many Christians, when presented with a Biblical truth that may prove to be an "inconvenient truth" for them (which could be for any number of reasons), will just simply "choose" to ignore or reject that "truth!" (Jeremiah 9:3 - My people are not valiant for the truth).

If  anyone would like a copy of a particular article that is posted on this site, I would be more than happy to e-mail you a copy in it's original Word Document Format.
