First, I want to thank you for stopping by to read my blog.
For those who would like to know more information about me, here’s how I would describe myself. I am first and foremost a Christian. It means that the grace of God has appeared to me, bringing salvation according to His good pleasure. I’ve been saved from the just penalty of my sin in Christ alone, by grace alone, through faith alone, and to the glory of God alone. This also means that I’m constantly being restored back to God – Christ is actively restoring my affections, my identity, and my image into the image of Christ. My identity and union with Christ declares that I have a heritage that transcends all other earthly identification markers (such as my nationality, my ethnicity, etc.). Because of the grace of God, I’ve been grafted into the body of Christ and thus, my heritage includes believers from every people and nation.
In terms of my theological positions, I am a confessional Particular Baptist who subscribes to the 1689 London Baptist Confession as the most accurate summary of the whole of Christian doctrine. For a brief outline of the distinctive convictions of a confessional Particular Baptist, see the following five points of Particular Baptists. For an elaboration of these points, see the following blog post from Pastor Jeff Riddle and the following blog post from Tom Hicks.
The Intention of This Blog
This blog is a collection of my thoughts on various theological topics with occasional discussions on contemporary social issues. My blog is not intended to be polemical, but it simply meant to encourage and exhort those who happen to find it. I have two primary goals with this blog site. First, I desire to present another faithful Christian witness who holds firm to the faithful Word and to contend earnestly for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. Second, I desire to use my writing to help deepen the walk of fellow believers. I will be posting about once a week and if you would like to follow the blog, feel free to subscribe via email. Thank you and God bless. I also have a complementary YouTube page and Google+ page in which I post edifying sermons from sound Biblical pastors, music from sound Biblical musicians, and articles from other bloggers.
