The present book is the second book in a seven book series entitled "The Seven Pillars of Discipleship." This particular book is based on the church and its doctrines. What is it that we believe and why. It is designed to provoke growth through probing questions in regard to the Scriptures. The concept behind the book grew from a desire to see the people of God grow in regard to their salvation. The church has always been a burden on my heart. Why is it that believers today don't seem to have a similar passion as those of the first century church? How is it that the church has so easily capitulated to the philosophies of this world? Why is the holiness of God, righteousness, repentance and judgment no longer part of the church's DNA? Of course I am speaking very generally for the most part. But that is why this book was written. Though it is written in the form of a bible study, the goal is to ask questions to lead one to think in regards to God's righteous standards and man's lowly state.
