“I count myself one of the number of those who write as they learn and learn as they write.” – Augustine

I’ve been a Christian for about 30 years now and have experienced the grace of God through many ups and downs, trials and blessings. I began writing here in January of 2009 as an outlet for communicating the truth’s of God’s Word. Little did I know how much God would use it to grow me in understanding more of Him as He has revealed in His Word.
In 2000, I received a Bachelor of Science (Geology) and in 2001 a Master of Science (Physical Science). I hope to one day incorporate this science background into my writing ministry, but am uncertain just what that will look like as of now. Currently I’m pursuing a Master of Arts degree in Theological Studies from Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary. http://www.cbtseminary.org/
The original inspiration for this website name really came from the song by Casting Crowns. I thought it perfectly illustrated how so often we listen to the many voices of the world, but fail to listen to the voice that matters most, the Voice of Truth, namely God through His Word, “Thy word is truth.” Since then, I’ve modified the tagline to “Speaking the Truth in Love” from Ephesians 4:15. My prayer is that someway, God may receive honor and glory through this site as I attempt to communicate His Word.
Statement of Faith
As the Lord continues to grow me through the knowledge of Him, I’ve seen the development of my faith and have realized the increasing necessity to better define one’s beliefs. Growing up, I never understood the purpose for a confession or creed, so I didn’t really put much stock in it. But given today’s postmodern culture and various “hybrids”of so called Christianity in which everyone claims Christ but few are talking about the one from the Bible, it seems even more critical to define one’s beliefs. While it’s true I’ve never held to a particular creed and yes I do believe that there are some who come dangerously close to putting their creed or confession on the level of Scripture it’s become evident, particularly through interaction on this blog, that I must more clearly define what I believe. So, that said, I will be updating this page to include more definitive beliefs. For now, feel free to check out the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith which summarizes many of my beliefs.
