Sneak Peak at Keller’s New Book

Posted: September 30, 2009 in Uncategorized

Click here to check out theĀ  Introduction to Timothy Keller’s new book that will be released in October, 2009.

Counterfeit Gods - Timothy Keller

“If anything becomes more fundamental than God to your happiness, meaning in life, and identity, then it is an idol.”

“The way forward, out of despair, is to discern the idols of our hearts and our culture. But that will not be enough. The only way to free ourselves from the destructive influence of counterfeit gods is to turn back to the true one. The living God, who revealed himself both at Mount Sinai and on the Cross, is the only Lord who, if you find him, can truly fulfill you, and, if you fail him, can truly forgive you.”

Four Reasons I Decided to Blog

Posted: September 1, 2009 in Uncategorized

1.) To be productive: I’ve realized more and more that I waste a lot of time. Blogging is an opportunity for me to do something useful and think critically about pertinent issues.

2.) To write: Writing is not my forte. In fact, I don’t like to write. Blogging will give me an opportunity to write more than I normally would.

3.) To Learn: I will probably learn more while doing this blog then the one’s who read it. I am convinced that reading, thinking, listening, and reflecting on different material for the blog will help me to grow in my relationship with Christ.

4.) To proclaim Christ: With technology advancing there are more and more avenues to proclaim the truth revealed in scripture. Blogging is a simple way for me to share the good news of Christ, and address other important themes in the Bible and culture.

My prayer in blogging is that VERACITY [conformity to fact or truth] will happen to me and those who thoughtfully read this blog.
