Bishop Talbert, it’s time to find a new church

Aldersgate changed the world. But do you even know what it was?

“”Millions of many colors, climates, and tongues, inhabiting the four corners of the earth, have lived richer, happier, nobler, and more serviceable lives because, in 1738, fire from off the altars of God purged and illumined the soul of a downcast and disillusioned English priest.”

Ever wonder why so many people believe in the rapture?

“Dispensationalism’s most defining feature is its belief in “the Rapture”, where Jesus will return partially to earth and invisibly in order to “catch/snatch away” (Latin: rapturo) believers before unleashing a hellish 7-year (or 3.5 year, depending on which version one embraces) period known as “the Great Tribulation.”…”
