Invite Paul

If you are thinking of inviting me to speak at your church, school, retreat, monastery, or whatever, thank you. I’m honored that you would consider asking me. Truly.

However, at this time I am taking on no speaking/teaching engagements anywhere. ’m serious about this. Please don’t write thinking, “I can convince him” – you can’t.

For 10 years I preached every Sunday. At the same time I lectured during the week and traveled the world speaking at conferences and universities. I’m done talking and traveling, at least for a while. For now I’m preaching and teaching through the written word alone. This is my passion – that, and being a husband and a dad to four energetic kids.

Please don’t think I am anti-social. If you would like to meet for coffee, lunch, a run, or a strenuous alpine walk, I’d love to do that. There’s little I enjoy more than discussing life, the universe, and the grace of God with like-minded people.

    Hey Paul!
    My husband and I have gone through the same transformation from a mixed gospel to hyper grace… and are thrilled!!!! It has been a very rough road but one for which we are grateful. We really desire to be a part of a church that is not mixed. Are there any such church networks that you are aware of at this time? Thanks for taking the time to write, with a loving heart, about the differences between the mixed and hyper grace gospel. We are so thankful for The Gospel in 10 words, 20 questions and The Hyper Grace Gospel. We are encouraged to have your books to help us describe what (WHO) has changed us so much!!!
    Keep up the great work!!!!!…. Not because you have to haha 🙂 but because the love of Christ compels you!!!!!

    Hi Paul,

    Thank you so much for this blog. I simply can’t thank you enough. God has used it mightily to free me from the oppressive, miserable effects of dead religion, and I look forward to getting more and more immersed in the gospel of free grace. If God allows it I’d be so blessed to meet you some day. If not here, in heaven I’m sure. May God richly bless you with all the treasures in Christ!

    He is risen!

    Joe

    Ps. As another blessed believer posted, are you aware of church networks that preach the undiluted gospel of grace? If not, would you please pray that God would plant such a church in the Herndon, VA area? Thank you.:)

  3. Hi Paul
    My husband and I came across your site in the last year or so when we came out of a very legalistic home church that we all thought was a Spirit lead new covenant church. It was a painful journey at the time and we are still “detoxing” and learning more about true Grace and what “Christ in us” really means. What seemed like blasphemy is now our life blood and we are experiencing liberty and joy and rest in the Lord since breaking away.

    We are from South Africa and in the process of seeking residence in NZ and we will be in the country for 3 weeks end March to mid April investigating job opportunities. I remembered last night that you are in NZ and was hoping we could possibly meet for a couple of hours when we are in Auckland. We are also at a place in our lives where we are very busy and try not to fill up our time unnecessarily, so I understand totally if you can’t, but we would love to fellowship with you if you are available, perhaps over a quick coffee or walk on the beach.

    Chew the cud on this based on the weds theory
    What’s the Wedsday theory KB?
    The day Jesus died !

    Jesus said he would be in the tomb 3 days and 3 nights . So do the maths .. Friday to Sunday according to our calendar and time clock. It does not work out

    You have to look at the period … the time of Jesus and Jewish customs .
    What do you mean KB ?

    # the Jewish day starts at sunset 6pm
    # weds death .. give it thought . Chew the cud .
    # weds through to sat night 6pm is 3 days and 3 nights
    Wait there is more ….!

    Matthew 28:1 ” after the sabbath as the first day of the week began to dawn … ”

    This does not mean it was the morning .. It speaks to the start of a new day @6pm according to Jewish custom .

    That means Jesus rose on the first day of the week .. 6pm was the dawning of the new day being Sunday. Don’t look at our time consider the Jewish clock.
    6pm is the start of their new day .
    Chew the cud .
    The important point is that Jesus died and Rose again
    Shalom.

    Think about the above . I mean who decided Jesus died on a Friday . If you take what Jesus said that he would spend 3 days and 3 nights in the tomb Friday does not cut it .
    Paul I would be grateful for your comments please

  5. Str8 to the point: Im Robert Eddowes from Revel8ion Media (also revel8ionTV on YouTube) and as we wrap up our first (grace based) christian documentary film ‘RECONCILED’ we are starting pre-production on the sequel film ‘BELIVE’ and we would love to work out getting an interview with you sometime in the next year, at your earliest convenience (we will come to you, or meet you at your local park for a quick sit and speak {on camera} we love your books and would love to include a word from you in this film) of course. Thank you for your time and consideration.

    • Do you realize that my local park is on the other side of the world? Thanks for the invite – I’m honored you’d ask – but I have to decline for all the reasons I mentioned above.

    Hi mate love your heart, enjoy your season.

  7. We are in Beijing again and communicating is dicey – no FB, Insta, Linked, Twit, or the usual subjects for a year. Our VPN is not always reliable, so we are focusing on the Main Thing. We would love to connect by email, as we have with our other Faves. eEncourager @ aol com
