In 2008, Jesus put on my heart the formation of a born again Christian ministry called Christ 4 Life Ministry, to be used to refocus and reintroduce other born again believers to who he REALLY is, what his doctrine TRULY is and that his Word is revealed in the only pure, preserved, infallible, inerrant and inspired Bible in the English language today in the King James Bible!
In actuality, C4L is the second ministry I have operated. The first one I called Forged in Spirit and was mostly aimed at witnessing to all of my family members. Notice from above that I said “I called.” That short-lived ministy’s name was just that, a title for my efforts to utilize the tools at my disposal to witness to my family…anonymously at that. That’s right, I made no effort to tell my family who it was that sent them stuffed envelopes of Christian materials because I did not want them to know…I wanted the material to speak for me. I did not even put a return address on any of the envelopes either.
What I did was I called my Mother and she gave me the mailing addresses for all my aunts, uncles, cousins and so on. Then I put together a group of tracts I had bought from a local Christian bookstore and then sat down and typed up my own 5 page tract. Once I was done, I printed off multiple copies, stuffed the envelopes (literally) and then mailed them off. Now, as I said I did not put a return address on the envelopes so they could not send them back and they have no idea who sent them. And what I do not know is what became of the material I sent them either. For all I know they took one look at the stuff and tossed it in the trash, but that’s ok, I am fine with that. At least they have no excuse!
I think I did that back in 2006 or 2007, I can’t be sure now. I do good to remember what I did yesterday let alone 3 to 4 years ago!
I had also reached out and located by the grace of God alone, my long thought lost Godfather, and the man who married my mother and father, who was an Episcopal priest. I think he was more shocked to hear from me than I was to have been able to find him after 30-some years. We exchanged letters and pictures of our families for a short while. Notice again that I said “for a short while.” It turned out that his son was gay and in the church where I then tried to witness to him about homosexuality and what the Bible said about it. Weeeeelllll…that did not go over so well. I have never heard back from him since! It is ok though, I am not sad about it. I did what the Lord instructed me to do and that is all I can do!
We are commanded by the Word to preach the gospel with boldness and expose the works of darkness sharply. Over the years I have developed my of a backbone when it comes to preaching and not being worried if I offend someone with my words, for when I speak it is not so much as ME speaking but the Holy Ghost! (See Matthew 10:19-20 KJV) I don’t care if your feelings get hurt, or if your sensibilities get ruffled or that you feel uneasy…too bad! The work of the Holy Ghost as described in John 16:7-11 KJV is what is working on your heart while and after I have preached the gospel. I don’t do seeker sensitive, seeker friendly or purpose driven garbage!
If someone comes to saving faith in Jesus, then their feelings getting hurt for a few minutes was worth it, don’t you think? Jesus did NOT come into the world in the flesh to be a revolutionary or a social justice warrior or some mind/body guru like some people (like Glenn Beck, a self professed Mormon teaches) or to be anything other than our Saviour who would save us from our sins!!!!!!
Anyway, sorry got away from the main point here. The Forged in Spirit ministry kind of fizzled after a while and I focused mostly on writing articles for this site. But then in 2008, after nearly a year of doing so much research and seeing the messed up shape born again Christianity was in, the Lord put it on my heart, as well as the heart of my girlfriend who helped found this ministry, to form Christ 4 Life or C4L as it is becoming known as. Late last year I did a Google search for the ministry and out of 2 million results it was number 2, but as of this morning (Wednesday, Jan. 19, 2011) it is number 3 out of 4 million results. Still, that is pretty cool if you ask me!
It pretty much exists in the online world for now, but eventually we want to set up a radio show and have a printed publication on a monthly basis, that would feature articles and Christian stories. My biggest dream for the ministry is to in about 5 years, form a conference type of thing called Christ 4 Life 2016, where we will have Christian musicians, artists and authors and guest speakers come in and edify the body. But that part of it would have to be controlled in a big way…I am not about to bring in anyone who does not conform to a designed list of beliefs I am drawing up and infect the body with false gospels and heresies. We already have enough of that coming from people like Billy Graham, Joyce Meyer, Benny Hinn, TBN, John Hagee, Paula White, Chuck Colson, J. I. Packer, Robert Schuller, Joel Osteen, T. D. Jakes, Carlton Pearson, Kenneth Copeland, Jack Van Impe, Creflo Dollar, Hal Lindsey, Tim LaHaye and on and on and on goes the list of heretical teachers and prophets that could be named here.
And while Roman Catholicism is a main focus of this ministry, we do cover MANY other religions and issues, even politics and world events. We have also created (through a professional company) ministry business cards that I designed on the company’s website that we use to hand out or leave in various locations. We also designed, using Microsoft Publisher 2007, a one page flier to advertise the ministry, which you can see by getting on our website. So, without further delay, here is a list of all our sites on the Internet for the ministry:
--This is our main site for the ministry and there is a section to the left that lists all the areas of the web you can find us.
--This is our YouTube channel where we have many videos that I have made and uploaded.
--This site is like YouTube and all the videos that are on our YouTube channel are on here.
--This is our Twitter page and though I am not much into “social networking” I have to admit I love tweeting!
--Not a whole lot to see on our Facebook page because I have it connected to YouTube and Twitter, so whatever I do on Twitter or YouTube is automatically updated to our Facebook wall.
--This is our spot on the Christian writing site called Faith Writers.
That’s it! All you have to do is copy and paste the site addresses into your address field on your browser and hit Enter to go to the sites. Below I am going to close with some links for you to check out for research on false prophets, false teachers and so on.
