...For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations,..
- 2 Timothy 4:4-5

As Christians, it is important to be discerning as to who and what we listen to and read so as not to fall into false theology and teaching. The following teachers and resources have been reviewed by Pastor John and while this is not an exhaustive list and there may be small areas of disagreement in regards to eschatology and some scriptural interpretations - each have proven to have a high commitment to the literal and innerant Word of God and are listed here to help guide you as you seek solid supplementary resources to your own reading and study of God's Word.

If there is a teacher or resource that you are considering and would like help discerning if the teaching lines up with scripture, please email
