Hey there, friends!
It has certainly been a while hasn't it? Even though it has been over a year since I have sat down to write something specifically for this space, that doesn't mean I haven't been writing!
2020 was a wild one. Notice that I said WAS since we are now officially in 2021.
Many things happened that rocked us to our core and made us question the very things we used to define ourselves.
Throughout this past year and the last several years, I have noticed a trend within the church as a whole and among late high school, early college students. There seems to be this idea that we can ask the question "So what?" in response to basic Biblical principles. What is left is a faith that looks and sounds like nothing that is actually taught in Scripture. It can range from simply questioning the inerrancy of the Bible to being taught by "influencers" that you deserve your best life now in books and social media.
It seems that now, more than ever, we need to simply define what is taught in Scripture and why it is valid, inerrant, and a firm foundation for your faith.
So in this series, we will be addressing many different issues. We will discuss the validity of Scripture, Biblical marriage, what IS the Gospel, the enneagram, the deity of Jesus, the Trinity, modesty, Biblical justice, and so much more.
Before we dive too deep into these issues and defining Biblical Christianity in our modern world, I want to take a moment to define a few core beliefs that I affirm regarding Scripture and the life, death, and burial of resurrection. Everything I do and say will stem from these core beliefs.
1. I am a sinner.
2. There is one true God.
3. I am saved by grace through faith alone in Jesus Christ.
4. Christ is God.
5. Christ is man.
6. Christ died for my sins.
7. Christ rose from the dead.
8. I must believe. I am accepted and, therefore, I obey.
But for now, I'd like to hear from you. What are some questions that you have about Christianity, Christian life, etc.?
I am looking forward to diving into these different topics and seeing how the Lord moves in our country and culture in 2021! Happy New Year!
