AUTHOR + BIBLE TEACHER
Has the world kept you from loving one another?
In case you missed it on the book cover, my name is Eddie and I'm glad you're here! I hope you'll stick around and learn a bit about me and the messages within my books that God has moved my heart to share with the world.
Of the many labels I bear, Tennessean speaks well of my place in this world. While I'm still getting used to the author label next to my name, I do recognize that my being a writer was all God's idea. Not only does God equip each of us with unique abilities, He shows us how we can use them to serve Him. We don't even have to be particularly great at them. I'm a mediocre musician at best. But God found value in my abilities and provided an outlet for me to use them to glorify Him. He finds value in your abilities as well, regardless of what they might be.
Undivided is my latest book. As excited as I am to share this teaching with you, it's heartbreaking to know that there's such a great need for it. In America, social and political values are strongly defended. Unfortunately, many of our values are the products of lies and misinformation spread by those whose hatred for our government has birthed some very destructive agendas. As our arguments with each other over these values becomes increasingly heated, our directive as followers of Jesus Christ to be undivided in our love one another is becoming lost in the fold.
Not being a very political person, I was unsure of how effective I might be at tackling this subject. Now that I've completed the book, I realize how importance it was for me to be on the outside looking in with no agenda but to love those on both sides of each argument I present. Even non-Christians may find this book to be of tremendous value.
I'm not just a Bible teacher, I'm a Bible nerd. To me, crunching the many numbers in Scripture is absolute bliss. But it's a worthless effort if our motive is anything but drawing near to God. With all the conspiratorial books out there about the end times, one might expect this book to be focused upon all the dark earth-shattering events that God has planned for this world. While they're in there, I made a huge effort to make this book a joy to read.
I've included a focus upon the identity of the antichrist, which is fleshed out in amazing detail. But I wanted to add a greater emphasis upon who God is. While I present plenty of evidence that we are indeed living in the end times, our motive to seek Him cannot be that we're running out of time. Jesus didn't just arrive at the last minute. He's been present since the world began.
This book serves as a wake-up call for all who call themselves Christian. It's the wake-up call God gave me before I surrendered to Him. In it, you'll read about my testimony and how I was once part of a group of people who believe that salvation is achieved rather than received. Members of this group are still out there and my heart goes out to them all.
Can you imagine going to church for twenty plus years, only to learn that you had never worshipped God even once? This was me. Because I didn't know Him, it was impossible for me to love Him. And worshipping Him was out of the question! After my baptism, I thought I had done everything I needed to do. I didn't have a heart that was driven to seek Him, so I didn't. God, however, was not going to let me off that easy. If you identify as a Christian, this message may be your own wake-up call!
MY FAVORITE BIBLE VERSE?
I could say that I get asked this often. But I don't. Instead, I find myself looking for opportunities to share it. And what better opportunity than right here on my site?
The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found and hid again; and from joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.
