Road to Sinai – Part 1: The Crossing Site

This is the first in a series we are working on with Ross Patterson to bring a clear understanding of where the Isralletes crossed the red sea, and where they traveled to get to Mt Sinai.
In this 15 minute episode we cover a simple explanation of where the crossing site is, with all new footage from the region.

This series is a work in progress, and many interviews will be added at www.roadtosinai.com as they are completed.  Stay subscribed to www.youtube.com/jumanous for notifications of new videos.

Musical Memory Verses

If you are anything like me, you find it difficult to remember bible texts word for word… yet you have no issue remembering an annoying pop song you heard once at the shops.  Well… no we aren’t putting the bible to annoy pop songs… but the point remains: music makes words stick better in your mind.  Leah and I have been making up musical memory verses for our kids for many years, and people have often been amazed at how easy our little tunes made the bible to learn… so much so, that we have had many requests for CDs.  I’m personally a digital kinda guy, so rather than mess around with CDs, I thought we could all do what we do best: make youtube videos!  So here is the results of this, our musical memory verse channel.
We aim to have at least a new memory verse every week… there are 13 available at the time of writing.  So if you find these helpful, please share them with your friends so we can all learn God’s word together! (Anyone doing the My Bible First sabbath school, we will generally record the weeks memory verse and put it up there during the week).  Enjoy :)

Leaving Independence Episode 1: Hard Road, Easy Road

Little light studios has been working on this series for a while, and they have decided to give away the first episode for free.  This series follows a bunch of teenagers as they walk in the footsteps of the early american pioneers, seeing the struggles and decisions that our modern lives have shielded us from.  On the way their guide gives them many lessons that we can all learn from.  EP 1 is only 30 minutes, and well worth the watch.

Conquer Series – The Battle Plan for Purity

The Conquer Series is an expertly crafted series to help men overcome sin of all kinds, but particularly the elephant in the room in all churches: sexual addiction. It may surprise some to know that 68% of evangelical males regularly view pornography.  Another stat states that 90% of conservative males regularly view pornography.  The church has failed these men, but not for the reasons you may think.

Shouldn’t conservative males be better at overcoming sin?  Actually, when you understand how addiction works, then you will understand it is a problem the church cannot solve in its current state, and will only continue to make worse by preaching condemnation on these sins, as is generally the case in the conservative Christian denominations.
Christ said “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” John 3:17.

Clearly sexual sin of any kind isn’t a part of God’s plan, but knowing that won’t help people overcome any addiction.  Generally deep down, they all know their sin is wrong, and feel completely condemned by it. So is there a way out?  There certainly is. This series gives men the tools to overcome this and pretty much any other sin.  Watch these two trailers and then consider grabbing the brilliantly produced series (I can’t recommend it highly enough for any male Christian who wishes to conquer sin – wives, buy it for your husbands, the may need it more than you think):

The Eastern Question – Islam in Prophecy

The Eastern Question relating to Daniel 11 and how Islam fits into biblical prophecy, is one of the most controversial prophecies in Adventism… at least it is if you hold my view (currently the minority view).
I have seen people yelled at, ridiculed and even special meetings held to ensure my view was “clarified away”.  So, needless to say, this isn’t a view that will make you friends.  I do believe however, it holds merit, and seems to be increasingly fitting current events in the middle east.  It was also the view of many of the prominent pioneers in EGWs time (this isn’t a guarantee of truth, it is simply interesting).

The two options are basically this:
Option 1: The literal reading of Daniel 11, or
Option 2: the literal reading of Daniel 11:1-40 and spiritual reading of Daniel 11:40-45. This speaker argues for the option 1, and to me it seems the more reasonable view, especially in the light of current events.
