Welcome to teii.org, home of the TEI International, founded by John C. Rankin in 1986. Contact the TEI and/or sign-up for the TEI Update emails. Also see johnrankinbooks.com and John’s speaking schedule.
The mission of the TEI is rooted the reality of creation, sin and redemption in Genesis 1-3 as interpretive for the whole Bible and all of life. In particular, the mission is to advance religious, political and economic freedom for all people equally, in the Name of Jesus.
1. Yahweh Elohim defines the original level playing field for man and woman to choose between good and evil, freedom and slavery, life and death. In so doing, the evil one is given the radical freedom to make his case.
2. Unless we are free to say no to the Creator, we are not free to say yes. There is no coercion in the Gospel.
3. In a political world full of distrust, the Gospel proactively seeks to create such a level playing field, an aggressive hospitality to all questions and dissenting opinions. Goodness, truth and beauty will always rise to the top. See www.prepartisan.org.
