Textbook: A Sincere Journey Ends Without JESUS
By Dr. Akiva Gamliel Belk
There are two quotes from the New Testament that we should consider before beginning Chapter 2.
Hebrews 4:11 says, For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
2 Timothy 2:15 says, Study to show yourself approved to God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, who rightly divides the word of truth.
What does one study to show themselves approved? Does one only study their doctrine? Who determines when one is rightly dividing the 'Word of Truth'?
Below are six references. The references are not taken out of context. One does not need to twist anything to make these references fit. However if the reader understands the meaning of these quotes it will cut and it will hurt a lot. This is the price of revelation. This is a tiny bit of what it costs to know the Truth. In these instances the Truth is going to smart a lot. The Truth will be shocking. The Truth will be difficult to accept. I am about to define what Chapter 2 and the 2nd audio discussions will reveal.
In Chapter 2 I share about 'The Struggle'. I had a serious struggle with the harmony of the four gospels. My world was turned upside down. It was difficult to function. Why? I discovered that the New Testament was not perfect... The New Testament was not Divinely Inspired... Jesus was not the Messiah... Jesus was not the son of God... Jesus was not God.... Jesus was a false Prophet... Jesus sinned... Jesus could not redeem me or anyone else from their sins... Wow!

The Struggle in Chapter two is carefully laid out and referenced. The reader will be able to follow my journey. The listener will be able to visualize what I experienced while going through the 'Struggle'.
I encourage the readers to purchase my book and to listen to the two associated audios.
May our Creator Enlighten our understanding.... Blessed is His Name!
