I want to tell the world the truth about God.
I want to shout it from the rooftops (metaphorically, and even literally), and this website is the result.
It's the testimony of someone, a relative nobody in the greater scheme of things, who is compelled to tell others about the true reality of our existence.
I'm not gifted with creativity or technical skills however God has created in me a passion and an enthusiasm for sharing the Gospel (good news) message of His true character and His plan of salvation; a message personified in Jesus; a message I know to be true; a message that is literally life-saving.
A simple message, presented simply.
The simple, beyond beautiful, truth.
(I'm encouraged by these verses: 1 Corinthians 1:18-20 and 1 Corinthians 1:26-27).
My personal story is unremarkable. What's remarkable is what I've found.
In brief, however (skip down if you want something more interesting…)
I'm married with two children. Like everyone else, we've had our problems and have the baggage to show for them. In the big picture, however, you could say we are relatively fortunate. These days, I'm trying to always look at the big picture. For me, it's the only way to stay sane in this crazy world.
I was raised an Anglican and went to a Uniting Church school, however I knew nothing about God, whether He even existed, and next to nothing about the Bible.
After leaving home, church was not a part of my life, except for weddings and funerals.
Only in recent years did I start looking at the bigger picture, and God took the opportunity to gradually make Himself known to me; sometimes with a quiet word, sometimes with a hammer.
Still, I sat on the fence for several years looking around at all the new scenery before I made the decision to surrender my life to God and join the Seventh-day Adventist Church(!).
What originally presented as an impossible leap of faith over a yawning chasm of ignorance, doubt and skepticism was by then only a small step over a few immaterial issues.
I was convinced, convicted, converted.
No coercion, no brain-washing, no naivety, no gullibility.
My eyes were opened, my thinking transformed.
I had found true reality and it changed everything.
