Is There Not A People?

Innocently, I  decided to share the results of my Biblical research at the Wednesday night meetings at the church I pastored ... Those Bible studies hit a theological raw nerve and the reaction caused disharmony and sent me into a depression that nearly destroyed my marriage and career. The tension became so intense that my wife separated from me for a while, and I was asked to resign my pastorate.

I moved to another state and found a job as a salesman, vowing never to stand behind a pulpit again. For two years I kept my vow. Then one day when I was home alone, the dammed-up grief burst. Going to the desk drawer I found the research that had almost devastated my life and began to tear it to shreds ... At the same time screaming at the top of my lungs to God, “Is there not a people? Is there not a people who want to hear all You have to say?”

This is the story of God’s leadership in my spiritual journey as I searched for a people who honor the Biblical truths God’s Holy Spirit had brought me to accept in my personal study … It is the story of how God guided me by amazing and even miraculous paths ... It is a story that reveals the providence and love behind God’s dealing with all of us
