Winter 2021 Update

Hey All,

So, we’ve been laboring behind the scenes not producing much content. This is unfortunate, but it is so. I’ve been working on studying God’s Word, as the last two years, I’ve become one of the speakers on the rotation at Willamette Bible Chapel. This has become something I’ve been doing more and more which has taken much of my time. It has helped me to cherish more, and more, those brothers who preach week after week with nearly no break. I am only preaching once every four to five weeks which is, still, is very exhausting. You can see something of these sermons on the Believe Better Ministries YouTube Channel by going up to the menu and clicking on “Video”.

So far, we have the two-part sermon on Romans 9, the sermon 1 Corinthians 3 and 1 Corinthians 11. I hope you enjoy them. We have plans to put up pretty much every sermon I’ve ever given, and I hope to edify you through them. If you have questions or comments feel free to e-mail me at RB.May@believebetterministries.com. I look forward to your comments and questions. I have been working on articles to put up here on our website. Some works coming down the pipe: Study on Dispensational Methodology (a paper on consistent hermeneutics), Biblical Hermeneutics (a paper on properly interpreting the Bible with examples), and two books (Believe Something Better a basic book on being a Christian and what it means, and The God Who Cares a small work on theology). These will be coming down the pipeline soon. I’m almost finished with the first drafts of most of these works, while the Dispensational paper has gone through two drafts and will be running through edits for a third draft then published here.

This is what you can look forward to in 2021. I’m hoping to see the books published by the end of the year. (At least The God Who Care which is almost finished with the first draft.) If we can get these done I will be very excited to see these put forward. I also hope and pray, as I always do, these works will edify you and lift you up, to help you believe something better.

Finally, before we move on to enjoying the beginning of this year, I want to deal with U.S.’s most recent election. I want all my Christian brothers and sisters to remember God decides who will be in their positions of power. We have the job to pray for them, and to live a peaceful and quiet life before all men. I hope and pray for you all in this time that you are not having a crisis of faith. At this time, I am always open to discussion and to help my brothers and sisters. If you are having troubles and are in need of discussion. Feel free to call Believe Better Ministries at ‪(458) 216-0049. I am not guaranteeing you will get us when you call us, but I am promising I will call you back and get back to you. So, now if you agree with the new President of the U.S. be humble and take care of your Christian brothers and sisters who do not, and if you disagree with him, be humble and take care of your Christian brothers and sisters. We are not saved by politics (or political parties or persons) we are all saved through Christ. There are enough heresies trying to creep their way into God’s Church to worry about politics.

Now, as you go, I hope and pray for you. I pray the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all, and we are helping you to believe in something better.

New Miniseries

Okay everyone,
While we wait for new things to happen I am have been working on a new series. I was inspired by Jason Mayfield of Grace for Life as he spoke on the Bibles he has in his life so I am doing a similar series. I hope you enjoy it. It is up on Believe Better Ministries’ Youtube Page and you can see the first video in the series below. I apologize this first video is rather long. I am a rambler. It happens. Anyway, this is the start of this journey and fittingly so it is the Bibles which started me on my journey. Hope you enjoy!

Oh, if you are looking for an NIV Study Bible, the 2011 edition is a good update to the ones presented in this video. I totally would suggest you go check them out. And, if you want to find those highlighters, Click Here.

August 2017 Update

Hey everyone, I want to be better about posting updates here. We’re looking for volunteers currently in a number of places; not just here but also at BOG Ministries. If you would like to get involved in our ministry here, we have a multitude of positions we would love to fill. We are looking at expanding our scope a little bit and we would love your help as we do so.

We are moving forward with so many things. I do plan on having the next episode of the BSB Vidcast/Podcast out this month – most likely very close to the end of the month. I am continuing work on the Believe Something Better Commentary series and I think we are on track for the first volume (though in actuality it looks as though it will be the 55th volume in order of Biblical layout) to be finished by November with subsequent publish in December or January. I am currently finishing up Second John and will be moving on to work on Third John soon. I am rather excited about this whole thing. It always feels good to have some fruit from your labors.

I am hoping to actually put out the eBook of the of the Psalms by RB and I hope to be putting out the second set soon. I enjoy poetry and write it as my mind wanders. I hope you enjoy it too.

All in all, I am hard at work and the BOG team is hard at work. Currently the work for the BOG team is the Gospel of John and after I am finished working on 1 John – Jude I will be putting together a short amount of info to go along with John in order to have an outreach book available. This would be BOG Ministries’ first piece of work in print and we have the same feeling as I stated above, fruits from our labor.

Pray for us as we continue down the road, running the race which is laid before us. We look forward to hearing from any of you who wish to get in touch. Our e-mail lines are always open. Feel free to e-mail us when ever you want!
