This blog is not for everyone.
It does not appeal to the lowest common denominator. This blog is for growing Christians and mature thinkers who are more interested in truth than dogma and ideology. It is for people who are more interested in growth than comfort. It is for people who want to go deeper. It is for people who want to objectively examine what they believe.
This blog is for people who are not afraid of being wrong.
There are hundreds of blogs out there that will present an emotion-based appeal to Christianity (too many in fact). This is not one of those blogs.
You won’t find a “word for today” here. No motivational speeches, no baseless reassurances, no hollow “Christian-ese” phrases that sound holy and profound, but mean nothing in the real world.
What you will find here is the pursuit of real answers. You will NEVER be told to “just believe”. You will never be asked to take something on blind faith. Nothing will be considered “unknowable”. You will not hear any pious sounding but intellectually lazy phrases such as “where God is silent, we must be silent”, or “there are just some things we were never meant to know”, or “God is a mystery”.
I believe that God WANTS to be known. He gave us a “heart” so that we could feel, but He also gave us a mind so that we could think. God makes it clear that He appeals to us though our minds. God does not ask us to feel Him, He wants us to choose Him. Choice is a decision. It has to be made by the mind.
This blog caters to Christians with intellectual curiosity – a grossly underserved and tragically small group of people.
This blog does not tell you what to believe as much as it tells you WHY you should believe.
This blog doesn’t show, it proves.
This blog doesn’t just give doctrine, it tells you why doctrine makes sense
This blog doesn’t “say”, it explains.
This blog isn’t based on dogma, its based on logic.
This blog will challenge you.
This blog will make you uncomfortable.
This blog is not for everyone. I hope it’s for you.
