"That I might
make thee know the certainty of the words of
truth..." (Proverbs 22:21).
Information For Brian A. Yeager
I get a lot of emails. Many of
those emails are NOT people looking to learn the
truth. Most just want to argue their point.
I am a teacher of the Gospel. That is the purpose
of this website.
That means I will teach (i.e. Acts 8:25-39), but I am not
looking to entertain your ideas, beliefs, or your
understanding of the Scriptures that you think is
contrary to what I teach. As Jesus promised, I
know the truth (John 8:32) and I want help others to
know and obey our Lord (II Timothy 2:24-26). I
will not get into endless debates and discussions with
people who already are set in their beliefs (I Timothy
1:3-4, I Timothy 6:3-5, and Titus 3:9-11). Before
writing or calling me, please consider the following to
save us both some time:
1. I get many emails from people who want to "prove
their point". I will not engage in email debates
(II Timothy 2:23).
2. I get many emails from people who ask questions, but
they've already settled on another answer.
- If you ask me a question I am ready and will
provide a Bible answer (I Peter 3:15; 4:11). It
is your task to verify that my answer is right (Acts
17:10-11). If you study and conclude it is not,
you should avoid me (Romans 16:17).
- If you have already come to a conclusion on what
"you believe", don't waste my time or yours by asking
a question (Proverbs 21:2).
- If you are
writing and asking questions, I will at some time
offer to study with you over the phone or in person
(depending on where you live). If you are just
out to waste someone's time, use social media which
is aimed at that goal (i.e. Facebook).
3. I will not soft
peddle the truth (I Corinthians 2:1-5; cf. Galatians
4:16). Truth is very sharp (Hebrews 4:12).
If you want someone to lie to you and tell you
falsehood, I am not the one to write (Galatians 1:10).
- If you act foolishly, I will not hesitate to use
the word "fool" or "foolish" (Galatians 3:1-3).
This goes for other words, such as "brutish" [stupid]
(Psalms 94:8). I do not attempt to be mean, but
to be clear. You cannot act stupid and end up in
Heaven. Sometimes, some people, need to be told
that. Consider Jesus' rebuke of Peter if you are
struggling to grasp this point (Matthew 16:21-23).
- Therefore, if you want to be a sinner and not be
told you are sinning (in any variety of accurate
terminology), you should not speak with a faithful
preacher of the Gospel. If you think such things
are not "Christ-like", you should learn about our Lord
a bit more (i.e. Matthew 23:1-39 and Luke 24:15-27).
- Sometimes, to be saved, a sharp rebuke is
necessary (Titus 1:10-14).
4. I will
provide Scriptures that answer your questions. You
must be willing to verify those Scriptures and search
them out (Ephesians 5:10 and I Thessalonians 5:21).
5. The word of God is
the only standard upon which I will converse with
someone (II Timothy 3:15-17 and II Peter 1:3).
If you think you've got the truth because you've
"grown up in the church", if you've "sat at the feet
of some great preacher", if you've graduated from some
school, etc., you're lost and I cannot help you. Don't
waste my time or yours (Proverbs 9:8 and Colossians
6. If you've made it
this far and you think you should email me, ask
yourself this question... Why are you about to
email a minister of the Gospel of Christ? If you
are really looking for answers (even if we may have
several exchanges and you need time to see the truth),
please contact me. I will, with much
long-suffering, be willing to help you to know and
obey the truth (II Timothy 4:2).
