Product Description

Product Description

Christian Churches, available for attendance to worship God and to receive from His written Word, are the most important institutions that exist. Nations that practice freedom of religion and worship are blessed to have this privilege and people of the world who desire this but who are not allowed this privilege, would love to trade places with us who do. The Church is also a place of sanctuary from the everyday problems we face in life.

One of the possible resulting effects of negative church experiences is that people seeking a Church-home or even those who are seeking relationship with God, may be discouraged from doing so, due to the improper actions and behaviors of Church Leaders and members. I do not believe that these problems exist in Churches on a wide scale but they do occur often-enough to merit honest recognition of them and sincere effort by the Leadership of Churches to prevent them from occurring, as much as possible.

There are good Churches available, where one can find avenues for true worship of God and true Christian fellowship. I have endeavored through examples and scripture quotes, to offer advice on how to avoid negative Church experiences and to find those that can add true blessings to one’s Christian walk and life of worship and praise toward God.

TABLE OF CONTENTS:

CHAPTER ONE: The Serious Consequences of Negative Church Experiences

CHAPTER TWO: You will Know them by their Fruits

CHAPTER THREE: Negative Church Behaviors Experienced by my own Family

CHAPTER FOUR: Important Traits in Pastors

A husband, father and grandfather, I've been a contract salesman most of my life. I am also a veteran writer and have served as an editor, forum moderator and an author of health article titles for major content websites.

I received a diploma from Liberty University for completion of theological studies in 1996. I served as a youth minister, Bible teacher and guest speaker in fundamental, evangelical Christian churches, from 1983 to 2001.

More About the Author

Living in the U.S., I am a husband, father and grandfather and have worked as a contract salesman most of my life. During the early 1990s, I marketed an outdoors product I invented and that I formed a small corporation to patent, manufacture and sell called the "Rod Floater" (now a registered Trademark). I traveled the U.S. making presentations to groups of Wal-Mart zone and district managers and received authorization to sell the product in two regions of Wal-Mart stores for five years.

I also sold the product to Bass Pro Shops, Cabela's and Academy Stores, all of which still carry the product and I landed a national promotion for the product with Kerr-McGee Oil company who began using the product to promote their "Mystik Brand" outboard motor oil in 1992. In 1996 I licensed the product to TTI-Blakemore, a major fishing tackle conglomerate, from which I am still paid monthly royalties from sales of the product.

I invented and marketed five additional outdoors products, also getting these into Wal-Mart stores and afterward sold them outright rather than licensing them. I learned a great deal about invention marketing during those years and was privileged to meet the CEOs of many well-known companies. I was also invited for television and radio appearances and met with the T.V. hosts of many fishing shows and was featured in the May 2001 issue of Inventors digest magazine. I enjoy writing books, e-books and articles on the subject of invention marketing.

I received a diploma from Liberty University for completion of theological studies in 1996. I served as a youth minister, Bible teacher and guest speaker in fundamental, evangelical Christian churches, from 1983 to 2001. I enjoy writing books and articles on Bible subjects as well.

In 2003 I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism; "Hashimoto's thyroiditis" being the cause. This autoimmune form of thyroid disease that causes destruction of the thyroid gland resulted in my also developing "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome", due to a compromised immune system with severe co-morbid "Adrenal Fatigue". I also suffered severe anxiety symptoms, including panic attacks early into the onset of Hashimoto's thyroiditis (Hashitoxicosis). A common heart murmur I was diagnosed with in my teens called "Mitral Valve Prolapse", also worsened in severity of symptoms, with the development of these other health disorders.

My eventual receiving of a diagnosis was a difficult process with proper diagnostic testing not being ordered by the first doctors I sought treatment from. These types of issues were inspiration for me to become proactive in my own health care and to self-educate myself on these health disorders, which I have done extensively since 2003. I now enjoy sharing this information with other patients experiencing my same health disorders, through e-books, books and articles.
