What The Gentiles Have Done To Christianity: Loving Jesus

Christians do not love Jesus enough! Indeed on a scale of 1 to 10, the average Christian's love for Him scores no more that 10. This is the startling message of Lloyd David Elcock's first volume of a series of scriptural expositions that he proposes to publish under the rubric: What the Gentiles Have done to Christianity. The foundation upon which he has built this series includes the following three cornerstones:
  • "Biblical Christianity" can accurately and justifiably also be called "Jewish Christianity".
  • After the control and direction of Biblical/Jewish Christianity was passed from Jewish to Gentile hands at the beginning of the 2nd century AD, the Gentiles comprehensively deformed it, and 1200 years later, partially reformed it.
  • The salvage and recovery of Biblical/Jewish Christianity, begun five hundred years ago by Luther, Calvin and the other Gentile Protestant Reformers, is only fifty percent completed; in particular, a number of the most fundamental doctrines of Biblical/Jewish Christianity are yet to be recovered, and their absence from today's Evangelical Church is the sole and single reason for the widespread carnality, and stunted spiritual growth that characterizes the lifestyle of the overwhelmingly vast majority of born again Christians everywhere in the western world.

In this first volume, the author puts forward the view that one of those as yet unretrieved fundamental doctrines is the major key to the Spirit filled life of love, faith and power that is the ultimate goal of both Biblical Christianity and Gentile Evangelical Christianity. That key, he says, is hidden (in plain view, out in the open) in the pages of the fourteenth chapter of the Gospel according to the apostle John.
