It’s true! After nine years with Blogger writing The Things That Come Out Of My Head, I’ve made the difficult decision to move to WordPress. Although this change probably catches most of my readers by surprise, I’ve actually been contemplating this change for quite some time. The recent Supreme Court decision legalizing same sex marriage, however, gave me the final motivation to leave Blogger, since WordPress doesn’t terminate blogs as readily as Google (a company known for it’s support of gay rights) might.
Homosexuality is one area I’ll continue to address in my posts, simply because LBGT activists will increasingly work to insert their agenda into the evangelical church. But I intend to write about a good many other topics that present day Christians encounter, whether it be trends that threaten the sufficiency of Scripture or reminders of Who we worship and why He deserves praise and adoration. I propose to keep the focus on Christ, frequently bringing attention back to the Gospel message of His atoning death and the glorious promise of His resurrection.
Unlike my last blog, this blog won’t showcase my digital art except in the sense that I will use my creations, as well as John’s photos (many of which I’ll manipulate with Paintshop Pro) to illustrate my posts. Accordingly, I will also dispense with accounts of our “Boston Adventures” unless they contribute to Biblical discussion. In other words, I anticipate a greater emphasis on the Lord, with any autobiographical comment serving only as auxiliary material that will direct attention back to Him.
This new blog upholds principles of Reformed theology, but more importantly it upholds God’s Word as the ultimate authority for life.
His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, 4 by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire. ~~2 Peter 1:3-4 (ESV)
I ask my readers to let me know when I compromise God’s Word in favor of human wisdom, even while I pray that the Holy Spirit will keep me from doing so. I aim to proclaim Scripture boldly, without regard for a culture that would twist it for the purpose of accommodating sin. This blog exists to honor Christ and His Word. Anything less would waste both my time and yours.
