We’re working to have content available for you on our website and on Youtube. Currently, we’ve been having a lot of problems as things go. If you haven’t heard about the fires on the west coast of the United States, well that is where I live and where Believe Better Ministries is headquartered, and this is just the most recent issue to take place in my life.
However, I am thankful for the Lord and how He has taken care of me and my family. During this time I am studying, and working on things. We plan on coming out with a book which is the first five years of Believe Better Ministries. I am also working on a book about my point of view on Theology and (more specifically) Soteriology. This book is called The God Who Cares and it will deal with quite a few things and I hope to clearly point out my point of view. Finally, I’ve been working on a study of Dispensational Methodology (more commonly called Dispensationalism), which will be posted here for all of my audience to read. These things and preaching have been keeping me busy.
Also, we do have a newsletter list, which we sent out an update on that this morning. Please sign up for updates directly in your e-mail. We used this in the past for Kalytero, and plan on using it for this again when Kalytero is relaunched for you to receive this.
Thank you all,
Well, I need to apologize for the missing articles from the end of last year, and the beginning of this year. I had them loaded into the website, but had put the date of publication in wrong. I put had put the Christmas Thought for last December in and apparently scheduled it for 25 December, 2020 rather than 2019, the same thing with the New Year’s Thought (except for 2021). This issue is now fixed. They are now up and posted on the website viewable for everyone.
I have some plans for 2020. I don’t want to say what they are yet as I need to get things ordered so I can make sure I follow through with them. I am hoping some of the things I have done in the past may be able to come back. I am praying for the Lord’s leading in all things.
One thing I do want to announce is we are planning on putting a book out of the first five years of Believe Better Ministries. This is going to contain all the articles which have been posted on our website. We are calling it the first five years of Believe Better Ministries because it didn’t become such until 2014. So, this is exciting and we hope you will support the book when it comes out. I can’t believe it’s been five years, but it has. We hope we’ve edified you over the last five years (or more) and hope to continue doing so as we go forward as the Lord has called us.
Stay tuned for news on what we are working on.
Hey everyone, we are so excited to have the second issue of Kalytero™. Kalytero is the premier publication from Believe Better Ministries. It is a quarterly journal furthering the goals of Believe Better Ministries; that is to help everyone Believe Something Better™.

We hope you enjoy this first issue and if you would like subscribe so you can get each issue in your e-mail please sign up over on the sidebar, or simply click here.
Also, don’t forget submissions are open!
So, we received an e-mail the other day asking where all our articles have gone. First of all, we are working on getting articles ready to be put up here on our website. That mission has never changed! We are going to have new articles, thoughts, and just plain info coming out here in the near future. But, and secondly, we are also working on building more of a presence. To that end, we have been putting out more videos on our YouTube Channel.
So, what that means is we are putting material out, it may just be in a format different from here. We may try embedding the videos and putting them here, but we’re not promising anything. I do hope you will go check out our YouTube Channel and watch our videos. Please like and subscribe so we can continue to build our reach. We truly appreciate all the support our readers have given us over the years and hope you will continue!
I hope you will enjoy the upcoming videos and articles. I also hope you will enjoy the upcoming issues of KalyteroTM. We are still working on this project and will be putting forth the new issue at the end of this month. I am looking forward to it and submissions are still open!
We will be seeing more of me later. Again, visit our YouTube Channel like and subscribe. And I truly pray we are helping you to Believe in Something Better.
Believe Better Ministries is excited to announce have a new project we are working on. This project is called Kalytero. This is going to be the first ever publication put out by Believe Better Ministries! Kalytero is going to be a quarterly journal put out for free in PDF format. We are also hoping to put out a hard copy of the journal which will be available for a small fee (which will cover shipping and the printing costs).
The goal is really to get our message out even farther. With this type of media, you can send each issue to whomever you wish. We are very excited to be opening submissions for articles of future issues! The first issue is planned and ready to come out. It is currently planned to be released on June 23rd and it will be our July, August, and September issue. If you would like to have an article you wrote included in future issues please read the submission guidelines on the new Kalytero page and, if your article fulfills them, e-mail it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We really are excited about this new project and hope you are too. If you want to receive a link to the PDF in your e-mail and notification of new issues make sure you sign up over on the sidebar.
OK, everyone, we are planning for the future!
To that end the Believe Something Better Page has been updated! You can now see a little of what we are planning with it. We plan on having the Notes and Outlines (free material we’re providing) up and available for download. This coupled with the BOGV provides a kind of study bible experience. We hope to have these study notes completely available over the course of the next two years. You’ll get to see the page evolve as more content is finished.
We are currently working on the finishing touches to 1 John-Jude, the first volume which will be made available in the Believe Something Better Commentary Series. We are really excited to be getting so close to actually making something available and having fruit for labors.
In this we want to give all the glory to God. We can do nothing through our own strength and only God is the one with the strength who has accomplished this!
Pray for us as we continue to move forward with this goal of finishing the series of commentaries and for volunteers. We are actively seeking volunteers to get involved in the Ministry. If you feel as though you would like to be involved please e-mail us. We are also open to taking donations please e-mail us about this option as well.
Thank you so much!
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!

OK, that could be a very misleading title!
I want to make it clear I have not personally contacted a martyr for the faith. Rather this is a work of fiction. I have always been – at least when it comes to writing – a fiction writer. I love to write fiction, especially science fiction and fantasy. You in fact can read my fiction online as it is currently being serialized. Well I was sitting in my chair reading Voice of the Martyrs and the Lord smacked me on the head with an idea I just couldn’t shake. Well… I think it was the Lord anyway. As I said I just couldn’t shake it I had a visceral need to write it and finish it.
I thought I’d give you all a chance to read it. I’ve been holding it back as it is different from anything else I’ve ever written. The idea is I’ve been praying to God about being the kind of person who is willing to lay their life down for Him. I’ve never thought I was this person. I want to be this person, but never felt like I had the courage to be. This part is not fiction, this part is absolutely true. I have prayed this question many times in my life. Wondered for many years if a great persecution happened here in the USA would I be the person hiding his beliefs to get by or would I stand up and shout God’s good news from the roof tops?
The story is essentially God giving me an answer. Whether this answer is real or fake, I cannot tell. I’ve pondered it and handed the story to wiser men than I. I have nothing more really to say about the story.
I hope you enjoy it.

Hello everyone, I am just wanting to give a quick update. We’ve been rather sparse this year on the number of updates. I have to admit I have been really busy so far this season and I’ve been rather preoccupied. This does not mean I am doing nothing. We are hoping to bring out the first official volume of the Believe Something Better Commentary Series this Fall/Winter. This Volume will encompass 1 John – Jude. I believe in actual numbers, though being the first one published once everything is said and done it will be the 53rd volume in the series.
I am hoping to move onto James, or 1 & 2 Peter after 1 John – Jude is finished. We will have to wait and see what the Lord provides in this. I am currently reading my NIV Study Bible which my parents gave me years ago.
Don’t forget to connect with us on Facebook, or send us an e-mail. We look forward to hearing from everyone! As always prayer requests are welcome and keep us in your prayers!
Well everyone, I have to admit I have Adult ADHD. I have ADHD for a long time. I learned to cope early on, but one byproduct of ADHD for me is my mind runs at two thousand times faster than other peoples. This also causes me to have almost too many thoughts happening. So, in an attempt to siphon some of those thoughts off I’ve started putting my thoughts down to paper. I’m going to start posting those thoughts to the web (I know scary). Well those thoughts will be being posted in either my personal blog (RB-Wan) or in my new project 21st Century Warrior Monk. The first post is out here and explains pretty well what my goals are for that project. This is part of the Believe Better Ministries only in that I am the author of these posts.
I hope if you go check it out you will enjoy it. If you have any feedback I always enjoy receiving it. Send it to me at RB.May@BelieveBetterMinistries.com.
Thanks So Much!
