When Jesus was here, he said “The Kingdom of Heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all he has and buys that field.” (Matthew 13:44 ESV)
A long time, I decided I wanted to be the kind of person that Jesus described in this story, and having the kind of courage displayed by the man in this story made it hard at times to fit into traditional Western Churches, although I honestly did not notice it right away.
I decided I wanted to learn to read the Bible, and (hopefully) I have learned things worth sharing. That brings up this website – I just wanted to share the good things I have found with as many people as possible. I hope that I can, in spite of how much I tend to have doubts about whether I am doing a good job.
There have been a few times when I just deleted all my work because I discovered a better way to organize or explain what I wanted to share. Even as I am writing this right now, I came up with a new idea that I think would make me sound less arrogant and proud of having a dizzying intellect, and simplify the process of helping others follow the path laid out for us in the Bible.
So I am going to reorganize some of the things I have already done. My new goal is to beginning organizing the information into lessons that can be shared in small groups or Sunday School classes with clearly defined starting and stopping points.
Each “lesson” will contain a single point of information; and hopefully the point of each lesson will begin building a picture in your mind that can help you know the story and ask questions the same way I do. So I will hope those of you who have visited in the past will forgive me for changing everything in order to make exploring Christianity online easier to learn from.
The goal has always been to help other people understand how to “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:19-20 ESV)
Thank you for coming, may God bless you.
P.S. – I will never ask for money, all my needs have been provided as a result of praying to God. I also will not be starting any mailing lists or anything like that online. My reason(s) for that can be found by simply listening to a YouTube video titled: “Selling Jesus – White Horse Inn.”
My hope is that you will take what you find here on this website (it is all free) and use it make disciples in your area among people you know personally. Then we can celebrate later when Jesus comes back.
Come Quickly Lord Jesus. Amen.
