How is any of this relevant to you? Let me ask you this: have you had difficulties with Scripture? Do certain portions cited by skeptics stump you? Have you had minor or even major doubts about your faith? Yea, me too. We're all on a journey, and sometimes the road can be bumpy, narrow and dark. The journey for a Christian is not an easy one, but we must all grow in faith and knowledge of God. What's interesting is that the Bible makes it clear that we must worship God not only with out hearts and souls, but also with our minds. Here's what Jesus said as recorded by Luke:
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind." (Luke 10:27)
And what does worshipping God with our minds look like? Well, it means that we need to equip ourselves with the increasing knowledge of Christ and His universe and share that knowledge with others. As Peter wrote in his first epistle,
"But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect." (1 Peter 3:15)
Since coming to faith in 2005, I've been concentrating on my own growth and I have found insights that I believe would be of great value to other believers as well as skeptics. Just as I have learned from others, I would love to pass the encouragement forward. I love helping Christians grow in their faith and knowledge through accessible materials for the evidence for God and the Christian worldview.
It is my sincere hope that everyone will come to know what they believe more fully and why they believe it. As a one-time agnostic, I believed that faith was a blind leap into the darkness. But the more I came to realize the depth and reasons for the truth of Christianity, the more truth came into focus and the landscape of reality was brightened. I came to realize that faith is not believing in something in the absence of evidence. It is much richer than many people realize. This was one of the reasons why I wrote my book, Cold and Lonely Truth and why I maintain this website.

As I stated above, it is my hope and prayer for all believers to grow in their faith and knowledge of God and prepare themselves to provide answers for the lost and dying world.
In my writings I try to reflect the multiple lines of reasoning why the Christian faith is the only true reasonable view of reality. I won't bore you with details about me here; you may get to know me a bit more by reading my thoughts within the pages of this blog.
This is my FREE ebook examining the nature of faith. Faith is not a blind leap into the darkness as skeptics often claim it is. And likewise, many Christians themselves do not fully appreciate the nature of faith. What have you been missing?
