It would be my pleasure to answer questions that challenge the Christian viewpoint in general, as well as be given the opportunity to ask questions in return for the purpose of assisting someone who is seeking the truth to see and understand for themselves how everything points to Jesus the Christ. I maintain a simplistic, yet highly challenging Christian religion that is based exclusively on the Bible, as the inspired Word of God. I especially enjoy answering and discussing topics which involve the trinity of God and how the Old Testament affirms Christ as God in the flesh, Christianity vs. Islam, Mormon, Jehovah Witness, Catholic and Atheistic faiths, as well as science and the history of belief systems in relation to Christianity. Thank you for taking the time to explore things! I pray that you would know the Truth, and conform your life to it.
I have been a Christian for 9yrs. Within those years, starting from very early on, I have been exposed to various belief systems and faiths which have encouraged me to examine what I believe in the face of so many different arguments against it, and have learned that the truth can in fact be discovered, defended, and lived out. I have researched the subjects of science, predestination/ freewill, "Once saved, always saved?", the trinity of God, hell, and most recently the subject of evangelism for all believers coupled with simple, practical and bold methods of sharing faith in Christ.
I do my own personal research using generic resources to generate a question base, explore the available information on those questions from the authoritive sources of doctrines pertaining to that belief system, conduct personal interviews with current believers, cross examine the answers given with the translations, contextual interpretations and supporting Scriptures of the Bible (as well as examine whether or not the argument can even hold up using logic), then take all the points of concern and run them through the above mentioned filter until there is an accurately defined objection which can be made, covering all sides of the argument.
Why bother with all of this? Because the truth of what we know does exist and can be found. God is the source of all truth and has made a way for us to know it. He even uses the simple things to confound those who are wise in their own eyes.
Using these basic methods, my wife and I continue to adopt more challenging perspectives within our faith that often times disagrees with popular 'christian' teachings.
