Righteousness Apart from Salvation : In the First Century
Righteousness Apart From Salvation: In The First Century Righteousness, redemption, salvation, regeneration and being born again are all accepted today as synonymous terms. Listen to most any preaching service and you will hear those words being used interchangeably, but do they truly mean the same thing? Did the Bible writers have different meanings in mind when they penned those words? Have we correctly reasoned out the scriptures when teaching about the concepts of those words? What does the Bible teach? Ron McRay has once again taken a subject that is not questioned by believers today and delved into the scriptures to bring forth some shining gems that have been missed for hundreds and even thousands of years. By disregarding the accepted norm, Dr. Ron allows scripture to prove scripture. Most people base their beliefs and understandings of the Bible on statements made from others, namely pastors, evangelists, professors and bishops. A common mistake that is made in studying the Bible is to take a belief that has been taught since childhood that may even sound so right and good and attempt to make scripture agree with the concept. That usually involves taking passages out of context or rearranging the order of events. However, when scripture is approached with an open mind and allowed to dictate the definitions of words and the concepts that God was trying to bring to light, the teachings and commandments of men often fail to make sense. Ron McRay is an expert at using scripture to reason out a matter without having to rely on the traditionally accepted view of things. In this book, he brings forth evidence that shows that righteousness and salvation are not synonymous terms. Empty your mind of all of your past teachings and allow this book to help you explore some exciting truths from the Bible that you have never seen before.

About Ron Mcray
Ron McRay holds doctorates in Theology, Letters and Philology. After pastoring a church for 35 years he discovered that what he had been taught did not correspond with scripture. His new perspectives brought new understanding to the Bible and he decided that the truth must be spread, even at the cost of losing his pastorate. He has developed a unique approach that reveals obscure and overlooked scriptures in an easy to understand way and brings light to many misunderstood doctrines and prophecies. In his writings, he often uncovers new information that mysteriously has been hiding in plain sight, but missed by so many Bible scholars. By using scripture to prove scripture, he imparts a straightforward approach to uncovering the truths of the Bible. Many students of scripture have discovered his insights to be an accurate application of scriptural principles on many subjects, especially eschatology (the study of last things). In 1992, Ron began offering books and teaching materials that open the Bible's true meaning to believers around the world thru his company, None Left Behind Corp. Many books on a wide variety of Bible topics are available. The Bible does not have to be hard to understand. He invites you to join him in finding new gems through this book.
