The Problems We Address

    We address two issues that separate us from all others who profess to be dealing with the subject of Christ's second coming.

    First, we do not teach the same viewpoint that the vast majority of others do. They promote a theory called dispensational premillennialism. We are saying that dispensational teaching is a "cunningly devised" fable that has put the church to sleep to the true biblical teaching of Christ's soon return.

    The main purpose of our ministry is to show friends what's wrong with dispensationalism.

    Positively, we explain the biblical alternative, an alternative we believe is in harmony with historic Wesleyan-Arminian theology.

    The second problem we address is the practical issue of worldliness in the Holiness movement, or what we call "antinomianism." The term comes from two Greek words meaning "lawlessness." John Wesley defined it as the doctrine that makes void the law through faith. It is essentially the idea that being a Christian frees one from the moral law.

    Antinomianism is most commonly found among those Calvinistic branches of the Christian church that teach an imputational doctrine of salvation, which permits adherents to make a profession of Christianity while continuing to sin in thought, word, and deed every day.

    Antinomianism is seen also in the Wesleyan  Holiness movement among the many who have forsaken Bible standards of holy living in favor of cultural relativity and compromise with the world—most noticeably in the areas of dress and entertainment.
