Below is a collection of resources I hope will be helpful to those searching for truth on the important matters of Who God is, who Jesus is, and on the history of Christian beliefs on these topics. Represented below are a variety different opinions, some representative my own, and others not. The inclusion of resources here does not indicate my full agreement with all they say, but simply means that (at the very least) I think they represent something valuable to the study of the history of these topics. All should all be read with discernment.

Many ancient Christian authors recorded a saying of Jesus not found in any of the canonical scriptures, “Be ye skillful money-changers.” That is to say (according to the ancient interpretation of the words) that we must carefully test all things whatsoever, not accepting all that we hear, but carefully testing to tell the difference between those teachings that represent the true “faith handed down once for all” and those that are false and counterfeit.
