was around 1978 at the age of 21 that I began to search for the truth of
God's Word with a Strong's Concordance and Dr. Bullinger's Companion
Bible. I had read the Bible 2-3 times but it didn't make sense to me and
I am certain the Lord heard my yearning heart for a better understanding
of His Word.
Back then I certainly
wasn't learning much from the Sunday school Methodist booklet which
contained at best the moral of the story and a few Scripture passages to
ponder, and I had questions that weren't being answered by my Sunday
school teacher of 30 years, but I was determined to find the truth.
With the help of beginning
studies written by Oscar Bowser and Dale Hand
(given to me by his
daughter who was also searching)
I began a life-long quest
of understanding God's Word. Bible periodicals such as
Truth for Today and Plainer Words
(particularly the Bible study chart found
here) gave me more insight into the Word as never before and of
particular importance, the key, the Bible study
rule of "rightly dividing the Word of truth" (2 Timothy
2:15).Through these studies and with the help of the Holy Spirit, a fog
of confusion began to lift and an exciting journey of discovery began.
With the right key at hand I had a better
understanding of the Book of books which filled my heart with joy!
Fast forward 20 years later to 1999, with the help of the software
program Frontpage 98 and after reading a few technical books, I learned
how to create a website and began to add the many studies I had
collected throughout my journey.
In the year 2000, I
purchased the bibleunderstanding.com website and slowly uploaded studies
one by one to the server. Soon after that, with permission from John
Porter (a trustee of the Berean Publishing Trust), I added
Mr. Welch's written material,
audios, and other recordings by Stuart Allen
and various teachers. Before long over 2000 audios
were placed on the Internet for anyone in the world to freely download.
What a thrill it was to receive those first emails from brethren who
expressed their appreciation of these treasures made available through
I'm not a teacher, only a webmaster whose desire is to serve and glorify
the Lord. Should you write to ask a question I might add a few comments
and steer you to studies to find for your answer. I hope you'll take the
time to dig for the treasures found therein as a Berean, searching with
an open Book to see if what is written is true.
It is my hope that the treasures found within this website will be a
blessing to you in your journey of understanding the Word of God,
Currently I reside in the Orlando Florida area and welcome fellowship

For those who want to know, these are my essential doctrines:

2. The all sufficiency of Christ's offering for sin and sins (Acts
3. That "All
scripture is given by inspiration of God..." (2 Timothy 3:16).
The Bible is the only authority for
faith and practice.
4. In the
Bible study principle of

There are many other doctrines I hold dear, however
I consider these basic for Christian fellowship.
