INTRODUCTION

Since God declared His redemptive plans to his children, Satan has been constantly attacking all faithful believers, the Jews first and the faithful Christians with persecutions, or with seductions.

If we ignore the faithful study of the Scripture and of the true theistic theology, we, surely, will be seduced away by every kind of wind, by lawyers beguiled arguments, by hook or by crook, and by people’s desires for illicit or vain riches, for lust and for domination and power.

The goal of this book is to empower every true believer, the faithful Messianic Jew and the faithful born-again Christian, to know the essentials of the theistic Scriptural theological system.

To learn intellectually is only a quarter the picture. Christ called us: First, to have and to keep the Scriptural theistic theology. Second, to love all brothers in Christ without discrimination. Third, to love our neighbors and even those who hate us, and to present the gospel in words and in action to them. Fourth, to pray and have intimate relationship with God, through Jesus Christ.

I am grateful to many people in my life whom God used along the way to be my professors and guides, such as Dr. Cornelius Van Til whose trust, wisdom and teaching, I cherish. Many people were influential in my life, to them, and to the Lord, I am truly thankful.

I cherish especially Dr. André Coste and Monsieur André Vinard for their firm stance in the orthodox reformed theology, and for their ministry throughout their entire lives in France.

My recommendation for the reader of this book is that: when you come to a new concept that you may not be familiar with it, continue on, and upon your second reading such new concept will make sense.

I repeated new concepts, with several comments and connections, to enable the reader to connect all the dots, and to feel eventually comfortable with the theological concepts and their interrelatedness. I recommend a second reading of the book, unless you are already a theologian.

We affirm that the Scripture alone is the absolute Truth. And, our theistic systematic theology is the best categorization of this Truth.
