My book is the result of my thirty eight years of personal study of the Bible, as well as decades of study by others quoted in it. It is based upon II Timothy 2:15 which says, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.” The words “rightly divide” come from the Greek word orthotomeo, which means to dissect correctly, to cut straight. It is a compound of the words orthos and tomoteros. Orthos means straight, erect, upright, while tomoteros means to cut comprehensibly, decisively. Tomoteros is contrasted with the word koptos, which means hacking or chopping.
Among many things, it shows the reader how the Bible divides itself into eight sections, known as Dispensations or Administrations as translated from the Greek word, oikonomia. It literally means, how things are governed. God, who is The Holy Spirit, chose different ways of governing his own. In the fourth Administration He chose the Law of Moses from which we received the Ten Commandments. Today we are in the Grace or Secret Administration where we are all members of the one Body of Christ, where Jesus Christ is the Head. Jesus works with Apostles, Prophets, Evangelist, Shepherds (Pastors) and Teachers to accomplish the building of his Church.
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for doctrine (correct teaching), reproof (to show you where one is believing wrongly), correction (how to get back to correct teaching), and for training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficiently equipped for every good work. Training in righteousness is going beyond the level of a babe in Christ; going beyond a diet of milk, to that of solid food. If you feel you are ready to grow up in Christ, leaving milk behind and start on a diet of solid food, as a mature Christian should, this book is for you.
This book brings to light seventeen centuries of error that has crept into the Christian Church making it a religion of sophisms, cunningly devised fables and false doctrines, as opposed to the rightly divided word of truth.
