TRUTH OF THE GOSPEL MINISTRY

 

COMMENTARIES ON THE BIBLE & DOCTRINES

 

TTGM has selected Bible verses for commentary as well as shed some light on doctrines that tend to be controversial for some. We only support commentaries from others that directly address the text and the context as complete as possible (in light of the entire Bible). We strongly believe that scripture should be used to interpret scripture. Where the scripture is silent on a matter, we will let you know it is an opinion. We encourage you to base your understanding of doctrine by the use of the King James Bible (KJV) – Why the KJV?   (videos)

 

Contact us if you want us to tackle a doctrine and we will explain it to the best of our ability or you may want to ask a Bible question. There is no question too simple or complex. We are here to give everyone that asks us a question regarding our faith on what we believe; this is our solemn obligation.
