Christian World View

In case you are wondering where my Christian worldview comes from, let me define my statement of faith.

I believe that the Bible is the infallible word of God, inspired through the Holy Spirit and written by man. I believe that God sent His Son Jesus to reconcile humankind by taking on our sin, dying on the cross and rising again. I don’t think Christians are perfect, just aware of how much we need a redeemer and thus forgiven.

I put every aspect of my life to the acid test of scripture. If it isn’t scriptural I (eventually) get it out of my life. There are topics that I cover that are not in scripture. At those times I use logic, the common sense God gave me and I look at other scripture that might deal with a similar issue.

If you think I’m wrong on something, please let me know. I wouldn’t want to lead anyone astray, let alone myself.

If you have a comment on one of the topics please add it, if you would rather not use your name or e-mail, make one up if you like. WordPress (the blog platform) requires it; I don’t do anything with it.

Comments

  1. Hey Chris – Love the new look and the “old” emphasis on safety in Jesus. Well done. There is much to learn and you provide the place for that to happen. Keep it up, Brother. And I would encourage your readers to pass this link along to family and friends. When one knows a train wreck is coming, the only right thing to do is to warn the passengers of what lies ahead.

    do you know who Jesus is?

  3. Can anyone tell me the best place that I can purchase storage containers to store bulk food items in or what ideas that you have that can be helpful to me.

    Thanks, Shirley

    • Shirley it depends on what exactly you’re looking for. In the link I’ll post below I give a few links to places to purchase some food storage equipment. I’ll just add that you don’t necessarily have to put food that is in Mylar bags in food grade buckets, I have started putting the Mylar bags in brands new 30 gallon metal garbage cans. They’re a heck of a lot cheaper and in the same foot print will hold much more food.
