God The Same Yesterday Today and Forever From the beginning of time after the fall of Adam, man has not understood his purpose in life on Earth. The unknown mysteries of life have put man on a pursuit to find answers that are already before him. This is where not knowing his creator who has all the answers. It the enemy of our soul that has kept us from ever knowing the age old question? What is truth? The universal mysteries have put man on a pursuit of the infinity to his own short life span and dies never to find the answer. Have you the reader, ever looked at the wonders that are in this world and asked the question, where did it all get it origin? Is there some one out there greater than I? I have found that there are people born with no knowledge of a higher intelligence than them selves. We call them atheist. Well, this book is about to introduce you to the reality of there is a God and at some point in the time of your life here or in the hereafter you will meet him. The fear of the unknown has caused us all with out the knowledge of truth to create an inner world that exists in our thoughts that leads us to live a life of willing ignorance. This reality block in our minds creates a false sense of security that is based in the material things of this world that can not talk, speak or hear. These are the idols we in a western world that have become the cymbals of achievements that we value as a reason for living. Have you ever thought where these gifts to create these natural phenomenons came from? Well, for seven years the God I serve has given me the answers to many of these questions about man, the cosmos and planet Earth., all of which he created. I am sure that when you read this book, the obvious signs will convince you of these realities, we all have been a willing participants in the ignorance that have led up to our present state in the world. Mark 8:36 (KJV) 36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

The Methodist Church, with its distinctive musical inheritance by which the worldwide Church has been enriched, famously expresses its theology through its singing. Its authorised hymnbook therefore means more than a hymn book does in other traditions – it expresses the central beliefs of the Church itself and is commended to congregations as their core worship resource. Seven years in development, Singing the Faith is authorised by the Methodist Conference and replaces Hymns and Psalms, published almost 30 years ago. Containing the classic, best loved hymns of the Christian tradition it also incorporates many bold and exciting elements including hymns, songs and liturgical chants from the world church. A large proportion of its 830+ items are 20th and 21st century compositions, offering congregations a feast of musical choices spanning centuries and continents. It is arranged thematically in three parts: God’s Eternal Goodness - the Trinity, praise and adoration, creation, gathering for worship, Scripture and revelation God’s Redeeming Work – the life of Christ revealed throughout the Christian year God’s Enduring Purposes – the Holy Spirit, our life in God, prayer, the sacraments, our human journeys, the saints and the life to come. Many helpful indexes enable fitting choices to be made that will enrich all occasions of worship.

From the poignant "A Tear on My Pillow" to the spiritual "How Could I Love God?" the author captures the emotions that bring these words to life. Faith is woven into everything Carter does, yet, as the oak tree of his life grows, its roots draw from the memories deep within him. Throughout "A Soldier's Thoughts, Memories, and Prayers," there are photos from Carter's family and friends, intending to catapult readers' imaginations as the written words guide them from one experience to the next.

The Book of Mormon testifies of Jesus Christ and teaches us how to become His disciples. The Prophet Joseph Smith (1805–44) affirmed that “a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book” (History of the Church, 4:461; Book of Mormon introduction). As you study the Book of Mormon and are prayerful, the Holy Ghost continually bears witness to your heart and mind of the Savior’s divine role as the Redeemer of mankind. The Book of Mormon exerts a powerful influence on the hearts of those who receive it and ponder its message. Elder Parley P. Pratt (1807–57), an early convert of the Restoration and an eventual member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, related the following regarding the first time heread the Book of Mormon: “I opened it with eagerness, and read its title page. I then read the testimony of several witnesses in relation to the manner of its being found and translated. After this I commenced its contents by course. I read all day; eating was a burden, I had no desire for food; sleep was a burden when the night came, for I preferred reading to sleep. “As I read, the spirit of the Lord was upon me, and I knew and comprehended that the book was true” (Autobiography of Parley P. Pratt, ed. Parley P. Pratt Jr. [1938], 37). Modern prophets have continually emphasized the need for every Latter-day Saint to read and reread the Book of Mormon. President Gordon B. Hinckley (1910–2008) declared, “I promise you that if each of you will [read the Book of Mormon], regardless of how many times you previously may have read the Book of Mormon, there will come into your lives and into your homes an added measure of the Spirit of the Lord, a strengthened resolution to walk in obedience to His commandments, and a stronger testimony of the living reality of the Son of God” (“A Testimony Vibrant and True,” Ensign, Aug. 2005, 6). President Boyd K. Packer, President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, shared how he learned that studying the Book of Mormon leads to personal revelation: “I found [the Book of Mormon] to be plain and precious. … “I learned that anyone, anywhere, could read in the Book of Mormon and receive inspiration. “Some insights came after reading a second, even a third time and seemed to be ‘likened’ to what I faced in everyday life” (in Conference Report, Apr. 2005, 6; or Ensign, May 2005, 7). Inspiration, as President Packer testified, will come as you consistently read from the Book of Mormon.
