From day one, I have been defiant FOR the truth. I have always felt the truth naturally takes priority over all things. Why wouldn’t it, if it is the truth. That has defined me in life, in many ways, but mainly as I walked away from Christianity, and then again back towards it. It was the Laodicean era and culture of most modern churches, that I rejected, and it was learning what the Bible actually said, and even calls these people out, that brought me back.
Now I strive to be a Berean, and “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15
My life’s goal and operating motto is: 2 Peter 1:5-9
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.
I am not a Hell fire preacher, and I am also not, an all is good, and all is love, hippy. Yes God is love, but we are here to make decision in a world where evil is allowed, just so that a decision can be made. Real Love cannot exist without a choice. This world will also serve as an eternal example of what happens when you allow just a little sin in. It sends out corruption like a cancer that gets worse over time.
There is always a "Too far left", and "Too far right."
Personally, I strive for the true real middle, where there is such a thing as evil, and good, or right and wrong, regardless of our opinion. It was defined before any of us were made. There is a time for justice, and also a time for reward.
Sin tends toward evil and death, and repentance tends towards good and life.
The whole entire thing was made so that those of us who love the truth, can gravitate towards it and realize, God is the cause to the entire effect, and its purpose is better than you can even image. If you come to realize Jesus is the truth, the way, and the life. (John 14:6)
If you look, it is shockingly easy to see the Bible is real, and every other major religion is a corruption spawned off the Bible, or from a time long ago just after the flood. That seems like a shocking thing to say, but lets be honest, they cannot all be right, because they don't agree at all.
What better proof for a truth is there, than mass counterfeiting. Go back to the beginning of all of them. The Bible predates all of it, including asian cultures. Not only can you prove that, you can prove Biblical events, prophecies, literal and historical accuracies, science, and most importantly, the AMAZING and true wisdom, that actually works!
The combination of having a heart for the truth, and my chaotic and traumatizing upbringing in life, is what drove me into being the man I have become.
I now see, what I once thought was a curse, was used as a gift to forge a powerful testimony, that God led me into fulfilling what already happened to be our calling as Christians. Had I been born into a normal family, I never would have needed to really search for the truth unashamedly like I did. Had I not falling in love with many people who also fell away from belief, I never would have solidified my own faith, and even be seriously urged into making this site. I know who I was, and I was shepherded to him, this was NOT of my own doing, but only I know how true that is.
It’s all real, and I am a witness of God actually changing people, if you ask him to. He will do it, call on Jesus and ask him, "If you're real, then save me too, and show me you're real. He will do it, even when you think he won't.
Major Biblical doctrines:
Saved through faith alone in Jesus.
Once saved, always saved.
