About Our Ministry at Godrules.Net
GodRules.NET is a Bible study website focused on revealing truth and exalting our Saviour, Jesus Christ. In 1996, while sitting in the CAEL Lab at Michigan Tech, God spoke to me and said, "I will open a door that no man can shut". I wondered to myself, "what could it mean?" and God revealed His desire for me to do online ministry. My first website was called "Biblical Reference Tools and Documents", which you can see a copy of here. And yes, I did create all those odd futuristic/sci-fi graphics (reminds me of Tron).
Shortly after college, I was employed at Navistar International Truck and Engine Corporation. While working there, I would come home, everyday and work on Godrules.net. In 2001, I quit my engineering job and felt led to start selling Bible software online and through chain stores and ever since, I have been making money online. For about 10 - 40 hours a week, every week for the last 12 years, I have worked on this website. A couple times, I took a little time off, but generally speaking, I have been working on it faithfully.
Now, I am seeking your help. As I am focusing on creating more foreign language Bible study tools for people to use. Currently, I am working on both Russian and Arabic Bible study tools. These two languages desperately need commentary, dictionaries and other Bible study tools interconnected online. Any prayer, assistance or financial support is greatly appreciated.
What is our mission here at Godrules.net? Foremost, we are interested in the salvation of all men. The last command Jesus' gave to His disciples before He was received up into Heaven was "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." Whether we are online or not, Christians are to obey this command. Also, we are dedicated to providing biblical study tools for personal and group study. This is of vital importance, because we live in a world that tries to influence our life in every respect. As Christians, we are to be "transformed by the renewing of our mind, that we may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." Last, GodRules.NET is committed to supplying useful links to other Christian resources. You will find that the links we provide are relevant links that lead to quality websites.
This website was first developed to equip the Body of Christ with easy-to-use Bible study materials. If you had a bookshelf full of Christian books in your home and you wanted to know what each book had to say about a certain topic, it would take you months of in-depth research just to gather the information. Now, you can search that whole library of Christian books in seconds! Utilizing various technologies, GodRules.NET offers multi-search capability for over 80 volumes of Christian books. On top of that, it also offers over 7 million chronological and topical cross-referenced links, so you don't have to hunt through each book to find a related topic or chapter. Now, most people would be willing to pay a decent amount of money for a tool like this. The average comparable electronic Christian library would cost you between $120-350.
Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you find what you are looking for here on Godrules.NET. If you have any questions or comments, please write me at - firstname.lastname@example.org.
