Hey,

Thanks for visiting the site. I hope it has and will help you as a christian, grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen. (2 Peter 3:18) That’s one of my favorite verses by the way.

If you aren’t a christian and are just looking to learn more about christianity or the bible, I hope I can clearly explain the things I learn. I’m sure the Lord will help either way.

For most christians and myself, there are a few things that should be made clear when talking about God or the Lord Jesus or the bible. The building of a home or any other kind of building is usually used as an example. The foundation has to be first made sure or else the building structure will suffer later on or just collapse. So here is my personal foundation and the foundation for this website:

Foundational beliefs

  • God
    • Is the Creator of the universe and all that is in it
    • Is eternal
    • Is a spirit
    • Became a man – Jesus Christ
  • Jesus Christ
    • Is God manifested in flesh
    • Is God’s only Son
    • Is the Savior of the world
    • Was sent by God into the world and lived a sinless life
    • Was rejected by His own people as their Messiah
    • Was crucified by them
    • Was buried by a few of His followers
    • Was resurrected by God
    • Is now in heaven seated at God’s right hand
    • Is Lord to those who believe/trust and obey Him
  • Human kind
    • Has inherited sin from Adam and is guilty
    • Is guilty before God because of this sin
    • Must be made innocent by the forgiveness that comes by Jesus Christ
  • The Holy Bible
    • Is God’s word in a collection of writings by men who were moved by God Spirit
    • Is accurate and reliable

The Lord Jesus Christ is God’s Son. He was sent into the world to be the Savior of it. Everyone has inherited sin making each person guilty before God and deserving of eternal death but the Lord Jesus took our place. Although sinless, He was made sin for us, punished by God and rejected and crucified by His own people. Whoever believes in Him and in this work He did on sinners’ behalf has the inherited sin and eternal death taken away and a new, right and eternal life inheritance is received.

There is so much more that could be said but those are the foundational truths of the bible as I have gathered and, the foundation of my own personal belief. There was God and myself. God sent someone to reach me and He did. That someone was the Jesus Christ and He did what was required to “fix” me. He has done that too and is still teaching me.
