This Website has been created to reach a small group of visitors who manage to find RTBL. My goal here is to reach those who are open to change in their life and are seeking answers to questions that plague most of us in the times we live.
I know that God chooses whomever He wishes to be used by Him and history has shown that God doesn't always chose the strongest amongst us to do His work. I also know that I am not a great thinker, writer or spiritual leader or one who has complete control of the sinfulness of my life, but I feel that God has placed in my heart the desire to reach whomever will listen to my humble messages.
(1Co 1:27) but God chose the foolish things of the world, that he might put to shame them that are wise; and God chose the weak things of the world, that he might put to shame the things that are strong;
(1Co 1:28) and the base things of the world, and the things that are despised, did God choose, yea and the things that are not, that he might bring to nought the things that are:
(1Co 1:29) that no flesh should glory before God.
This site may only reach a few people who visit, and if you feel God is calling you, He is... Not everyone will relate to my messages and I cannot reach all people, but I hope that those directed here will hear the voice of Christ hearkening them to a relationship with Him if they do not have one yet.
I am just one follower of Christ whose purpose, I believe, is to add one more voice to spread the Gospel of the Good News of Jesus Christ and help hasten the return of Jesus. As I start my journey with this Website, I hope you will take this walk with me where we can both learn and apply the principles of a relationship with Jesus and to learn more about His Kingdom.
Gods true character has been under attack for centuries and damage to God's character can be traced back to the Middle or Dark Ages. Many church doctrines practiced in Christian churches today are not found in the Bible and because of this, many false doctrines have slandered God's true character and perverted who God truly is. It is time to rectify and proclaim the true character of God and with this site, I hope to do so.
All I am trying to do with this site is to awaken others to the truth about Jesus and to help rectify God's true character. lf you do not know Jesus, I am hoping you'll accept Christ and join me in eternity when this life is over.
I believe Jesus Christ is the son of God and because of Man's fall from grace in the Garden of Eden, Christ was sent to re-acquire the Kingdom and mankind from the illegal ownership of Satan, originally named Lucifer. Through Christ, we have redemption and salvation from our sins because Jesus shed His cleansing blood when crucified on the cross of Calvary. I believe that Jesus is the Lord of Lords and King of Kings as stated in the Bible and I have asked Him to be the directional compass of my life.
Road to Better Living is located in Newberg Oregon and is a one man show. I opened my web site doors in December of 2003 and have been serving the internet community ever since. I originally opened up as an internet retail outlet, but after a severe back injury, I took down my online business. Due to God's provision and help since my accident, I have since decided to focus my attentions toward those who are seeking change in their life and an understanding of who Jesus is and why we need Him.
I have been a follower of Christ for over 30 years. I have read and followed the Bible during my Christian walk, but it has only been recently that I have started to understand the Satanic attacks on God's character and the damage done to the true image of God. I discovered this through the study of Bible Prophecy. I am dedicating my website and talents to help others discover the true character of God so you can have a more intimate walk with God.
After learning the truths I've outlined in the topics written on my website, I had no choice but to make a change in my church and denominational affiliation... I am now a member of the Seventh Day Adventist church. The truths that God has given this denomination are amazing. I always wondered why many doctrines of the Catholic and Protestant church did not line up with actual Bible scripture. I now know why, it's because there is error being taught in most Christian churches today. Check out the SDA and see for yourself the truths that Jesus has given to this denomination. You be the judge to see if the SDA have a grasp on Biblical truth and a true understanding of End Time Bible prophecy Click Here to Learn What the Seventh-day Adventist Believe.
My Professional Career
In my professional career I have been in the Software environment since 1988 and in 1991 I worked as a Technical Support Representative for Central Point Software, maker of PCTools, PCAnyware and CPBackup. I later advanced to Research and Development as a Software Tester and worked there until Central Point Software was acquired by Symantec Corporation, makers of Norton AntiVirus. When Central Point was sold, I was asked to stay on with Symantec and over time, advanced through the ranks to a Quality Assurance Test Engineer and Supervisor where, for a short time, I supervised a Beaverton QA team and remotely supervised our International Quality Assurance Test personnel in Japan and Dublin before the Beaverton Oregon Research and Development site was shut down.
I worked for Symantec for 12 years before Symantec closed their Oregon site and moved their software R&D to Newport News Virginia and Santa Monica. I declined offers to move to either location and elected to stay in Oregon to be near my son and have remained here since.
I hope your visit here to RTBL is enjoyable.
