In 1 Cor. 9:22, Paul tells us to 'be all things to all people so that some might be saved. Finding a common ground with women is the reason God put me on this earth. Romans 14:22: "You may have the faith to believe that there is nothing wrong with what you are doing, but keep it between yourself and God. Blessed are those who do not condemn themselves by doing something they know is all right. Vs.23. But if people have doubts about whether they should eat something, THEY shouldn't eat it. (emphasis mine). THEY would be condemned for not acting in faith before God. If you do anything you believe is not right, You are sinning." 1 Corinthians 10:31-32: "Then whether you eat or drink, or WHATEVER you do, do all things to the glory of God. Be without offense (lead into sin 877) both to Jews and Greek, and to the church." Ephesians 6:19-20: "Pray also for me, that to me may be given speech in the opening of my mouth with boldness to make known the mystery of the gospel. for which I am an ambassador in a chain, that in it I may speak boldly as it is right for me to speak." Colossians 3:17: "And everything, whatever you do in word or in work, do all things in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father through Him." 1 Peter 4:11: "If anyone speaks, let it be as the words of God; if anyone ministers (to be an attendant, to wait upon menially as a host, friend or teacher, to serve 1247), as by strength (forcefulness, ability 2479) which God supplies, that in ALL (any, every, the whole, all manner of, all means 3956) things God may be glorified through Christ Jesus; to whom is the glory and the might forever and ever. Amen."
Please know, up front, that the scope of my faith will not be determined by the size of your own. "God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, of love, and of self-control." 2 Timothy 1:7.
I believe Jesus Christ is the risen son of Jehovah God who authored the Holy Bible, Genesis to Revelation. I believe Jesus humbled Himself to life as a human, and out of obedience to His Father, died and rose again. It was His death and resurrection which redeemed man from a lost sinful position before God. I believe Jesus is the only way to be reconciled to God. My belief is not born from an intolerant worldview, but from the words of Jesus, Himself (John 14:6, reference also Hebrews 7:25 and Acts 4:12). God gave us His only Son because He doesn't want us separated from Him. Instead of charging us a redemptive wage we could never pay, God sacrificed His Son and paid the wage for us (John 3:16). However, it's on us to reach out and accept God's gift of Jesus. It is always our choice to accept Him or reject Him. Jesus will come again someday to collect those who belong to Him. Until that day comes, it's my privileged duty to live for Him. I believe when Jesus ascended into heaven, after His resurrection, He left for us the gift of the Holy Spirit. God's Spirit lives within those who accept Jesus as Lord and are baptized in His name (Acts 2:38). As He dwells within us, He enables to overcome the sinful things in our lives (Romans 8:5-9). He does this by guiding us, convicting us, and giving us God's power to overcome Satan. He also gives us strength and comfort when adversity comes for us (Romans 8:26-27). Because I understand my unworthiness of Jesus' sacrifice and am grateful for it, I cooperate with God to the best of my ability, so that I might become more like Jesus . My efforts to emulate Him are small, fractured and incomplete, but God's grace allows Him to see my devotion as beautiful. When I stand before God on judgement day, awaiting my sentence for a sinful life, I'll watch Jesus step forward to say "I paid the price for her, Father. She belongs to me." God calls me to share Jesus' story with others who might be unaware of it. The stories God inspires me to write teach Biblical truths without the fear of church attendance or the vulnerability of face to face conversations. As offensive as some might find my stories, my writing can make an introduction to God far less scary than meeting Him face to face, when this life is over, after it's too late to fix things. I understand my accountability to God and will forever lead any person toward only Him. My work uses exaggerated situations to teach Biblical truths, which God wants taken literally. The only liberties I take with my work are those which are not explicitly stated in scripture, and which have no bearing on a person's salvation (eg: a female guardian angel). I suppose it's possible to say I write only non-fiction books. I have some which are commentaries by nature, which anyone would call non-fiction, while others teach Biblical principles using creative stories. This genre` is called Creative Non-fiction. Jesus' second coming is close. There are so many world events converging at this point in time, all of which speak to His imminent return. This world is nearly out of time. For this reason I write blunt, fast-paced books, for all kinds of people, in hopes they will reach those who are currently lost to God. I want you to know I pray for each and every one of you who reads my work. I pray you'll take the time to think about God's love for you, and what He did for you when He sacrificed His Son. My hope is that you'll understand you're reading one of my books or this website because God brought you here. You are always on His mind and He doesn't want you separated from Him. There's not much else God can do to prove His love for you. He created the beautiful planet on which you live. He gave you life in your mother's womb, sparing you death by abortion. He sent His Son to die for you. He gives His Spirit to you as a gift when you accept Jesus as Savior and are baptized. And, He's seen to it that you have access to His written word, the Bible, so that you may know of His great love for you. If you wish to go to heaven, you must stop making excuses and accept all He's done on your behalf. Also, please think about what He wants for you in addition to salvation, and think about what He wants to do through you to help others find Him.
