There is absolutely nothing special about me or this site.
It's simple stuff; nothing deep, nothing scholarly or erudite.
I cannot give you a convincing reason why you should take a more particular interest in what I have to say over the millions of other religious blogs and websites.
I can only recommend that you do.
Because if the God of the Bible exists then the truth must be somewhere, mustn't it?
Why not here?
I'm genuinely in this for you, not me.
The truth is better than I could have imagined.
Maybe it will be for you as well.
A few minutes on Wikipedia shows me how little I know...and how much I don't know.
This site is about what I know.
When I say know, I mean what I know to be true, to be factual for me, from personal experience.
That experience is both material (physical) and supernatural (spiritual).
I was a die-hard skeptic and agnostic and used to (mentally) scoff at things "spiritual" and "supernatural".
I can't convince you that what I know to be true is actually true, to the point where you also know it to be true. Just like you can't know that I like avocados, in spite of all the evidence and argument that I might present. You might be convinced into thinking and even acknowledging that I like avocados, however it isn't something that you could know, to the point where, say, you would bet your life on it.
In the same way, even though I know the God of the Bible exists (I would literally bet my life on it), I can't make you know that. You can only know that God exists from personal experience. So on this simple website I'm not trying to convince you by evidence or argument. I'm simply presenting my viewpoint, my experiences, and presenting resources that I trust and that might help you find what I have found; nothing less than the meaning of life, the universe and everything.
A big claim?
Can I convince you?
But God can.
And He will, if you ask and allow Him.
There is a world of misinformation and confusion about God.
The truth has been so clouded that most of us don’t have anything like the clear picture, or any picture at all, save one of division and conflict.
The picture of God that reveals His true character is like a jigsaw puzzle.
If a piece doesn’t fit perfectly, then it doesn’t belong.
Any wrong pieces will confuse, mislead and discourage.
The purpose of this site is to help you find the right pieces so you can assemble the picture yourself and, on the way, hopefully, find God.
I can't answer all the questions here, or even any of them comprehensively or exhaustively; this site is just somewhere to start.
In the end, you can only trust God.
Don’t put your trust in any person or organization.
God will use the Bible, the Holy Spirit and other resources, including people, to help you along the way.
(And if you're sincere and surrendered, He'll do some really amazing things for you, but that's another story).
If anything you see or hear is not in agreement with the Bible, reject it.
Also be aware that, more often than not, truth and error are mixed and mingled making it easy to be fooled into believing a lie.
To discern the difference between what is true and what is false, you need to:
- be genuinely seeking truth.
- have an open mind and a teachable attitude.
- be honest and sincere in asking God to lead you.
- be open to His leading.
- be humble.
God says that if you seek Him with all your heart, you will find Him.
