I have always loved to write. However, the passion for writing can easily fade when you spend several years in school where writing is a necessity. Because of that, I remained silent in written form and made up for it in preaching and teaching. When I no longer had the platform to teach and preach, I started this.
I’m not exactly sure who reads this other than my wife and my WordPress followers who comment. I used to have a lot of Facebook friends to read, but I think they’re pretty used to me by now. I have a few who look me up on search engines (aka stalkers😂). Despite who may take the time to read this, what do I want to accomplish by this?
My greatest desire is to challenge the thinking of Christians. I have always desired for believers to live at a higher and hunger for that. For many years, I settled for mediocrity in my Christian life. That is no more! I will not stifle the passion within me to know God in His fullness and help as many as I can do the same. God wired me that way, and I will not be unfaithful to that.
I know I have a tendency to poke at issues that are sensitive in the church. That’s because I want to stir people to think about another side of these issues rather than just believing something they have been told. I had ultra conservative preferences shoved down my throat for quite a while. Then I returned to my desire to be biblical rather than culturally traditional (notice I said culturally not biblically traditional).
While my denomination might try to restrict my mouth, they can’t restrict what I type. Jesus didn’t give His life for denominational Christianity. Neither do I. I hope that none of my readers do things because that’s what a good Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Episcopalian, or anyone else does. I hope you do what Jesus wants you to do. In the end, He will be the only One who matters. My prayer is that we also strive to live a life and hear Him say in the end, “Well done!”
