Disclaimer: About This Blog
THIS BLOG IS: my personal journey of how I am rethinking some of my spiritual beliefs.
THIS BLOG IS NOT: intended to point fingers at people who I think are wrong.
I do not believe the final judgement will be based on how many correct answers we get on a theology exam. I believe many people throughout history have had genuine relationships with our Lord and Saviour Jesus, despite holding questionable beliefs and practices. I make no claim to having it all figured out or being your judge. If we end up disagreeing over these topics I pray we can find a way to demonstrate grace.

Current blog programming on pause.
I need to pause and seek some balance about these topics.
In hindsight we are thankful for the work of the reformers from 500 years ago. It is an understatement to say it wasn't easy in those days to ask questions either.
However I need to seek God for peace to see if he wants me involved in further reform, or if I should leave the dirty work to others. How can I balance building others up to be more like Christ, while I am also focusing on deconstructing. Can I learn any lessons from past reformers?
In the real world, I desire fellowship with others with the goal of building each other up to be more like Christ.
Is this blog helping, or harming that desire?
Maybe now is not the right timing, or I am not the right messenger (or have the wrong message).
Is this really the path God has planned for me? My family and I need to spend some time seeking God on this. Your prayers are welcome.
