It is my belief that if someone says they believe in something, they should know what they believe in and why they believe it. This extends to religious beliefs, as well, in my opinion.
I believe the Bible is true, Genesis to Revelation, and that it is a communication from the one true God to his creation. This site is a place where the Bible is examined from perspectives that may be unfamiliar to many people. Three main categories are explored and interwoven through various writings, videos, and audio podcasts.
- First, there is only one God, the Father. This site recognizes a Unitarian (i.e., non-trinitarian) view of God.
- Second, God’s “torah” (the Hebrew word for guidance or instruction) is eternal, and is not just confined to a set of rules in the first five books of the Bible. God’s torah is for everyone, not just Jews. Having a Hebraic understanding of the culture and context of the Bible is absolutely essential to reaching the correct conclusions about what God, through the Bible, seeks to teach us about himself and his eternal rule and reign.
- Third, this site covers prophetic events from a Preterist position. This is the understanding that prophecy in the Bible has had past fulfillment, and we can view the historical events that demonstrate this. This view states that we are not currently in any “last days,” as the Biblical last days took place two thousand years ago.
I hesitated to state these categories up front, as many Christians may be immediately turned off based on their own personal committed beliefs. From a mainstream Christian perspective, the assertions above may seem like heretical statements. However, I believe in being open and transparent, and it is my hope that these positions may spark some curiosity, if nothing else, to at least explore this site a little more. Others may want to investigate further only to prove these assertions wrong; you are welcome here as well. I fully admit I don’t know everything there is to know about the Bible and eternity, but I do know a thing or two about some of these things. Let’s hope some open dialogue will prove beneficial for both of us.
