To All Prospective Readers,
A nineteen year old writer such as myself has much refining to undergo, yet as a born-again Christian, I must fulfill the Great Commission. This blog is a small piece of that aforementioned fulfillment. I work to write what the Holy Spirit and the Bible inspires. This is a blog designed to break down the walls of the shallow journalism and the gilded prose that fills our headlines. Instead, I write about the roots of what Christians and non-Christians both face today in the modern world. The words I author are not meant to be a momentary source of inspiration but instead, an exit sign to get off the highway of this world’s brokenness. It’s a marker to guide men and women towards the light of God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. If you’re already in God’s corner, this site is for you to come where “iron sharpens iron” (Proverbs 27:17). So come along and ready your spirit for transformation.
With you in Christ,

What Readers Will Find
- Readers will find posts about everyday Christian life, doctrine, and Biblical history.
- Much of what I write about is battle tested and often is based on personal experience.
- I will comment and give my analysis on current events, cultural topics, and all the controversy that the world wants answers to.
- For your enjoyment, You might even find some short fictional stories that contain Biblical themes.
- This will be a blog that focuses on Biblical Christianity, so every reader should keep that in mind. You could possibly believe the exact opposite of what I’m writing, but that does not mean I intend to discriminate against your beliefs. I’m writing about matters of faith, so I don’t intend to offend.
- Disagreement does not equal discrimination— I may think that some ideas, beliefs, or opinions are wrong, but I do not hate anyone for the convictions they have. I may respectfully disagree with someone, but that in no way means I’m against the person.
- I base my doctrine on the Bible and the scriptures, which shouldn’t need addressing, but many professing Christians and churches have deviated from this obvious requirement.
Statement of Faith
- I believe that the God of Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob is the one and only God. The previous phrase is plagiarized by many militant extremists from numerous other faiths, so I can understand why people will view the phrase with skepticism and treat it with a tired frustration. Don’t get me wrong, there are other “gods” that compete for your faith, but I believe that God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit comprise the Godhead and are the ultimate, supreme authority. However, my writing is not geared towards forcing my faith upon someone else. The choice is the reader’s, but I know where I stand.
- I believe that there is only one way to heaven, and that’s through Jesus Christ. Salvation comes from having faith that his death on the cross saved us from our sins, and his resurrection sealed eternal life for all who confess Him to be their savior. It comes through believing in your spirit and asking the Holy Spirit to dwell in your “inner man” (Romans 10:9). This statement will most likely infuriate everyone else who has an opposite belief or believes in multiple roads, but pluralism in paths to heaven is not scripturally based.
- There is a heaven and there is a hell.
- God still heals today because His son Jesus Christ took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses (Isaiah 53:4 & Matthew 8:17).
- God is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8).
- The Holy Spirit is what makes the Word of God sharper than a double-edged sword (Hebrews 4:12). Without the Holy Spirit, the Bible will seem as just another nice sounding book. The Holy Spirit makes it tangible and life-changing.
- God loves everyone more than the logical mind can comprehend. He loves you even if you don’t believe. However, he offers salvation to all who believe and follow him faithfully to the end. That means that He desperately wants everyone to have a relationship with Him through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. He doesn’t love anyone more or less, but those who believe with Him are guaranteed to both understand and experience His love in a deeper way than those who don’t. For example, it’s difficult to realize that someone loves you if you don’t ever take the time to cultivate a relationship.
- I am not exempt from committing the same sins that I point out. I’m a sinner saved by grace, and I still fail miserably, so don’t think I sit upon an imaginary throne that is above reproach.
