1 — (p10) Media and News reports of the 2000 Federal Elections in the United States indicated a near 50/50 split among voters who would call themselves Christian and that an estimated 90% of the black constituency voted for the Democratic Party presidential candidate.


Chapter 2

1 — (p23) Erwin W. Lutzer’s book is an excellent read and explains why you can trust the Holy Bible from a historical translation perspective.  Lutzer, however, recommends that you start reading your Bible at John 1:1.  This I would take exception to, since it renders confusion over the identity of Jesus Christ from the start.  Instead, I recommend you start reading in the Gospels at Matthew 1:1 and then read every red-lettered verse throughout the New Testament.  Reading these words of Jesus Christ will bring you clarity, as Jesus never said that he was God.  The red-letter verses stand as good theology in and of themselves and only the “Alpha and Omega” verse in Revelations is mis-interpreted as a statement from Jesus.  See chapter 10 for a complete study of the phrase “Alpha and Omega” and why that phrase refers to God Almighty not Jesus.
