When I started this blog last December my goals were twofold. First to share my spiritual journey with existing friends and friends not yet met. To that end I’ve gotten some viewers and a few have searched online and found this place. I pray that I am imparting information of value to those facing similar challenges to mine and that my journey will encourage and even direct people to the answers they seek. The answer I found and believe is right is that salvation is only possible through rebirth in Jesus Christ. The Holy Scriptures say so, so I believe it.
The second goal was to work through things in public. Developing my understanding of God and the experience of walking in faith and reflecting that back into the world so that people can discuss different perceptions and points of view. That goal hasn’t been as prominent as I might have liked, but there’s time.
Where things start getting a bit spiky is when people think that I have the answers. Truth is I’ve found some of the answers but nowhere near all of them. I am less than a year into this journey and I will spend the rest of my life trying to understand God’s will and implementing his plan in my life. That will keep me busy for a while for I believe there is so much yet for me to learn. Sometimes I feel further along but the truth is that what I know is vastly outweighed by what I don’t know. That’s OK. Everyone has to start somewhere.
This is all about me. About my understanding of God’s realm and my role in it. I cannot tell you day-to-day what percentage I actually get right. I don’t have a bible college-trained pastor proof reading my stuff. All I have is what’s in my heart at the time I write it. It could be right or it could be very, very wrong. So take all that I write as one man’s opinion with no more value than anyone else you might meet on the street or in your supermarket. I’m just a guy trying to figure it out just like everyone else.
So I will say it again. I’m no expert nor am I a scholar so don’t take anything written here as gospel. If you need that look to your church, your pastor and other resources with better credentials. I just don’t want to lead you down the wrong path, no matter how well-intentioned my goals.
