I believe it is helpful when reading someone’s thoughts to understand a bit of the worldview their words flow out of. Reading about me personally and understanding my theology will hopefully help as we learn together.
I believe in the the Jesus Covenant meaning that God the Father sent Jesus Christ, who was fully God and fully man, to live a sin-free life and die on the cross as a sacrifice for our sin. Jesus then was buried and in victory over death and sin, rose again three days later. Through this act of love, Christ made a way for those who believe in Jesus as Lord to be eternally with God in heaven.How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey in my mouth.
I believe in what author Scot McKnight calls the Jesus Creed which is that God calls us to love Him first and foremost with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength and then from His love and out of our love for Him, we are to love those around us in action and truth.
Relevance of Scripture
I believe that the Bible, in its entirety, is the inspired word of God for us showing us God’s love, judgment, and plan of redemption which is offered to all who will accept Him. I believe the Scriptures are without error in the original teaching and that His word is the final authority for those who proclaim to believe in Him.
