Last night after typing up My Story and posted it to my blog, I went to bed I had some trouble falling asleep. I usually don’t have any trouble, maybe it was the mountain dew I drank around 11pm, not sure. My mind was full of different things from the day. Things I am reading about, church and family things. Then it hit me, I had been considering getting back to writing more on my blog and was wanting to find a way to organize some of my thoughts in a coherent way that I could keep up with. I believe I had found the way to go. I have kept a notebook of my studies and notes on books that I have read over the last year. I had organized it into a way that I could find what I was looking for quickly. I would just simply use the same type of format that I have in my notebook. Now I really couldn’t sleep my mind was racing with ideas and how I would start out. I have loved teaching apologetics, but I know I couldn’t get away with that each week at church, so, I decided that I will use my blog to post articles, thoughts on what I believe, and bits and pieces of arguments and definitions within the apologetic studies. I have found my angle, to educated anyone on how I came to believe and trust in God, specifically in my Christian faith.
I realize that this will be lots of work, but I have a passion for it, and I will enjoy doing it. I know that there are going to be those might read my blog that disagree with me and my worldview, that’s OK. I would just hope that they as well as anyone would keep an open mind to the ideas that are presented, as I try to do with the books, articles, and blogs that I read. I will welcome any comments for and against my views expressed. The only thing I will ask is that the discussions are kept clean of hate speech and name calling. I will post anything in response as long as it is truthful and free of meanness. I will follow the rules for myself as well. I was frustrated a few weeks back when I started dialoging with a gentle man from San Francisco about the truthfulness of the Bible, and after reading his article I found a few things that I questioned and posted a response to. I gave him a few facts and things to consider in a reply, but he never approved my comments to be seen by the public readers. I was disappointed that he didn’t post my comments for whatever reason it was. I suspect that it might have made his article look bad, I guess I will never know, because after several attempts to contact him now, he has just ignored my messages. That is also something that I will try not to do to anyone who leaves comments on my blog. If it becomes time-consuming, I may have to change the time frame in which I respond, but I don’t think that will be a problem, I’m not anyone famous, and I don’t care to be, and hundreds of people will not be reading my blog daily.
So here goes, let the blogging begin, and I hope that it will help you in your journey, to discovering what I have found to true and trustworthy in my relationship to Christ. As always, I will welcome any comments, questions, and discussions about anything I type. In my next blog I will summarize what are the factors, evidence, and reasons for my belief in God and my Christian faith.
