During the 2016 Presidential Election, a cyberattack into the email servers of the Democratic National Committee revealed crucial vulnerabilities of U.S. data security. American Intelligence Agencies believe that the source of this breach was from inside Moscow, likely ordered by the President of Russia himself. They are wrong. A data string hidden in a covert location in Eastern Europe reveals that the true location of this breach is a malevolent Artificial Intelligence System. In less than 48 hours this AI is planning a brute force data attack into NORAD, the primary missile defense system of the United States. The purpose: to gain control over the U.S. Ballistic Missile Defense Center. Continue reading “A.R.N.I.E: A Science Fiction Adventure”
The events that took place during the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ are empirically validated by history. Today, any person can know for certain that the New Testament narrative regarding Jesus, is true, accurate, and honest. This book is a reasoned and intelligent examination of these events through the lens of history.
Many people are unaware that there are hundreds of non-biblical documents which describe Jesus of Nazareth as present in Jerusalem during the same period of history that the New Testament Gospels describe Him. These records from the Roman Senate, Jewish Talmud, and various other Greek sources, fully validate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, in cooperation with the Gospel narratives.
Jesus claimed that all of the events that took place during His appearance on earth were predicted in the pages of the Old Testament. Beginning with Moses, through the Prophets, and the Psalms, incredible and impossible predictions were made concerning the Messiah.
When Jesus was resurrected on the third day, He stood in the midst of His disciples and they were deeply troubled. They found it impossible to believe that the man standing there before them was really the same Jesus that they had seen crucified. In response, Jesus said to them:
“Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day.”
Then Jesus said to them:
“These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me”
And then Jesus “opened their understanding so that they could comprehend the Scriptures.”
What were these ancient scriptures that Jesus recounted to the disciples that proved that He had fulfilled all 400 of the Messianic Prophecies and was therefore the true Messiah?
They are the very same prophecies that are contained within this book. From the beginning of the Bible, through every page that predicted and described the Messiah, “Honest Men” recounts all the events that concern the coming of Jesus into the world.
“This book will take you through every part of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, in context with all the Old Testament scriptures. By the time that you finish this book, your knowledge and understanding for who Jesus really is and what He has accomplished for you, will be immensely magnified.” -M.L. Lladas
Forty-two years in the making, this is the singular publication that contains all of the important events of Jesus’ time here on earth and places you alongside Him as one of His disciples as He explains everything that He did.

“These things were written so that you might believe”
How would you feel if you had a son and he went into hostile territory to seek out and save people who would never thank him for what he had done? What would you do if these individuals falsely accused your son of crimes he did not commit and had him arrested, beaten, and executed?¹ What emotions would you feel if your son cried out to you to forgive the men who were torturing your son, and he asked you to not hold these crimes against them?² What would you do to these men, when they treated the love that your son gave to them, as garbage to be thrown out and disregarded?³
We forget that there was a Father who was watching His Son die, as Jesus hung on the cross. God planned this event, before the creation of the universe. The Son wanted to save us and He was willing to take upon Himself, all of our sins. Continue reading “One Gospel: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, Combined As One Incredible Story”

Understanding Sin and Salvation
A valid question that is frequently asked by many people is, “Why Christianity is the only way and the Bible, only the true words of God?” In order to understand these things, we must fill-in a little background information. Continue reading “What Jesus Can Do For You That No Religion Can”
Today, the term, “Extremism,” has come to mean individuals who are extreme in their religious beliefs—causing them to take extreme action against others. The recent attacks in London at the London Bridge are repeatedly referred to as the actions of “Extremists.”
The problem with using this term, without the context of “Islamic Extremist,” is that people will also use this term to define other groups who are also extreme in their belief system, but non violent. Continue reading “The Danger of Using the Term: “Extremism,” Without Context”
The title of this post presents a strange proposition
We might ask why anyone would ask such a question. After all, isn’t there only one Savior who is called Jesus? No, there are actually others who are called “Jesus,” and are not the Jesus of the New Testament. Continue reading “Is The Jesus You Believe In, The True Jesus?”
Many of us know someone who claims that they once believed in Jesus, but now no longer follow Him. This is not a new phenomenon, it has been happening since Jesus arrived on earth 2,000 years ago.
What someone says is not always met by their actions. The test of any confession is what we do in the long term. Jesus was very clear that only those who endure till the end will be saved (Matthew 10:22). John later stated that because certain individuals had departed Jesus’ church that this was proof that they never were a part of it. Continue reading “Why Some People Stop Believing In Jesus”
A few days ago I was clicking through the channels on my TV, looking for something of redeeming value when I was stopped by something that was being said by one of the actors in a particular movie:
“What is Parkinson’s?”
“Oh, that’s God’s special way of telling us that He loves us...”
Of course this actor meant this in a derisive and condescending way towards God; knowing that this particular person is an Atheist. What interested me about his remarks was that he was not far from the actual truth.
We tend to think of human disabilities as negative parts of life. Some critics of God say that these disabilities are clear evidence that God does not exist; if He does, He does not really loves us. The thought here is that disabilities or inadequacies or anything that makes us less than normal, are what is wrong with human life. Continue reading “Your Disability, Inadequacy, Failures, and Weakness Are All Part Of God’s Plan”
The fundamental question that must be asked regarding whether or not God exists, is what kind of evidence there is to validate such an assertion?
I have spent more than forty years seeking, examining, and documenting the evidence for God. It is my professional opinion as a researcher, and critical author, that the evidence for the existence of a singular, transcendent, unlimited Being, is substantial, empirical, and conclusive. Those who present an argument that there is no evidence for God are simply misinformed or willfully ignorant. It is impossible to maintain this position due to the massive amount of evidence that resides within the reach of any interested person. Continue reading “Proving the Existence of God”
In the discussion of God’s existence, the evidence that proves this certainty is resident within a variety of sources. This brief article notes a short list of the hundreds that are available in order to make the most logical and empirical conclusions in the smallest space possible. Let us begin with a logical examination of the facts: Continue reading “The Ease Of Proving God Exists From Empirical Evidence”

After writing several books regarding the Messianic Prophecies which Jesus fulfilled in the New Testament scriptures, I am still amazed by those who assert that Jesus did not fulfill any of these predictions. One of the texts that is most profound in validating Jesus as the Messiah, is observed in the descriptions of the prophet Isaiah in chapters 52 and 53. This morning I was reading through these verses in The Living Bible and I was struck by their exact portrayal of the actual events that took place in Jesus’ life.
It is impossible to discount the fact that Isaiah wrote these texts more than 700 years before Jesus was born. In fact, all of the scholarly Rabbi’s in Israel attributed the text of Isaiah 53 to the Messiah up until the 12th century. It was at that time that a change occurred where these men began to assert that Isaiah was describing the nation of Israel, not the Messiah. This becomes tenuous when we consider that verse 8 describes the Servant dying for the sins of Israel. If we insert Israel into this verse we have Israel dying for the sins of Israel. This is further illustrated by the following verse (9) that would require Israel would be innocent of sin and therefor suffering unjustly.
Verse 8: “For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.”
Verse 9: “He had done no wrong and had never deceived anyone.But he was buried like a criminal …” Continue reading “The Death and Resurrection of the Messiah Predicted by the Old Testament”
There is something resident within us that wants perfection. We see it in our mind as we observe things around us that are not perfect. We feel uncomfortable when entering a hotel room that is old, dirty, and unkempt. We feel displeasure when lied to. There is a righteous anger that mounts upon our heart when we see or hear about a child or elderly person that has been abused.
Perfection is an ideal that we all want, yet accept that we can never apprehend. Why is it that we earnestly desire perfection and feel disappointed, angry, or perplexed when every human being we meet is incapable of this perfection?
