STORY BEHIND STAFF & STONES:
“…he took his staff in his hand; and he chose for himself five smooth stones from the brook, and put them in a shepherd’s bag…and his sling was in his hand…and he drew near to the Philistine.” 1 Sam. 17:40
Over the course of about a decade it has become clear to me that our culture has slid into what appears to be irreversible territory. The slide in moral standards has been exponential in my lifetime–and can only be understood by considering the deceitfulness of sin. One would only need to conduct a brief content survey of commercials over the last 30 years to solidify this reality.
However, in the midst of this new paradigm, one must not be downcast or despair. As long as there are humans still alive, then there are humans to hear the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ–that they might repent of their sins and believe the gospel. The issue of sin is ancient–it is a powerful force that for the Christian has been rendered impotent–and it’s curse, defeated. Therefore, the Christian can stand–with face set like flint–toward the violent winds of change with a confidence that sin (and its ultimate result–death) has been swallowed up in victory.
Thus, the purpose of this blog is to simply engage the culture with information from various authors, speakers, leaders, pundits, scoffers, scientists, researchers, Christians, and a variety of other sources. In addition to this, to provide an environment for me to put out some of my writings and thoughts that perhaps–if so granted by the grace of God–would also engage the reader with thought provoking and biblical insights practical for everyday life. I am not an expert, I am not a genius, I am not a professional–I am simply a husband, a father, a learner, and a disciple of Christ seeking to challenge the skeptic with ancient truths, as well as stir the Christian to love and good deeds.
“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.” 1 Cor. 15:58
