Exploring The Deep Things Of God
God is love! (1John 4:8)
Love does not make a record of sin! (1Cor.13:5)
On the cross Jesus prayed, "Father forgive them for they know not what they do".
God does not keep a record of our sins...we do!
The record to be cleansed is the one we keep between our ears.
What we have done causes guilt and shame.
What others have done to us causes anger, resentment, and bitterness.
The cross of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin.

WHO IS DTG ?
Welcome to DTGministries
DTG is an acronym for Deep Things of God. Because we are dedicated to the advancement of God's love we set
the foundation for strong communities.
We organize regular meetings for the strengthening of God's people that they might better experiece
their ministry of edifying the body of Christ.
Who We Are
DTGministries is a non-profit religious organization that promotes biblical
principals for practical life applications. Our outreach is to bring deliverance through understanding God's love to people and families
who are searching for answers to temporary set-backs due to divorce, unemployment, illness, or other life-changing events.
Upon invitation we travel to churches and/or home groups to conduct teaching as part of the inviting churches' service or conference.
We seek to help individuals receive an understanding of Calvary that will make their heavenly Father more of a reality in their life.
Knowing God's love through Christ is the foundation of our teaching.
What We Believe
God is love. (1John 4:8) If
this be true then we can learn a lot about Him by applying this conviction to 1Corinthians 13: 4-8:
God is long-suffering, kind, does
not envy, does not boast, is not prideful, does not act unseemly, does not seek His own things, is not easily provoked, does not impute
evil, rejoices not over iniquity but rejoices with the truth; He bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures
all things. God never fails!
The importance of grasping the character of God can not be over estimated when trying to understand the
gospel. One attribute of love listed above is, love does not impute evil. The scriptures bear this out in
2Corinthians 5:19 To wit,
that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the
word of reconciliation.
Hence, the purpose of this ministry:
We are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did call you by us: we pray
you in behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
God does not keep a list of sins, we do. We have guilt and shame because of what we
have done to others, and we have resentment, bitterness, and anger because of what others have done to us. The purpose of the gospel
is to set us free from all sin. Being able to know we are forgiven (for our sins) and being able to forgive those who have wronged
us (who's sins we carry in our memories). Understanding Calvary does just that.
If God does not keep a record of sin then Christ did
not die to appease God's justice. God is just in not keeping a record of individual sin. How can (spiritually) crippled people keep
from responding to one another in anger in the face of the wounds they have accumulated throughout their lives? It is obvious they
are hurt and just as obvious they will hurt others. The purpose of the cross is not for God to see us differently but for us to see
Him as love. Recognizing the wounds we carry we can better understand the world knowing they are as wounded as we are, thus giving
us the ability to love our enemies. The wages of (carrying) sin (ours and others) is death, but God's gift to the world is eternal
life, for those who have ears to hear.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in
him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world
through him might be saved. John 3:16-17
If one can believe God actually allowed His Son to die at Calvary, then one can see the long-suffering,
patience, kindness, and understanding He manifested during that death. God used the death of His Son to manifest love toward those
who killed Him. The power of the cross lies not in the death of Christ, but in the fact God allowed it. To take the Father out of
the picture takes away the passion of the Father's love and causes us to miss the point: God loves us as much as He loves His only
begotten Son. By realizing this truth, we become children of God and joint heirs with Christ. We have power to forgive and be healed
of all spiritual disease. We have power to live a life of love.
