Biblical Resources

Below are articles and books that from various authors written on many biblical subjects from christian living, the plan of God for all of mankind, doctrinal topics and bible prophecy.

DISCLAIMER: The following articles from different writers in various branches of the Church of God and other sources I have found quite interesting and helpful. Having said that, not all points in these articles necessarily represent my own personal views or those of the church group which I attend (United Church of God [UCG] in Brisbane).
