This is a post I have been attempting to avoid for quite some time. There is two reasons for this; the first being that its not very nice, and the second because a good majority of it is stuff I’m still working on. So in reading this, please do not think that I have somehow mastered all of this.
There are seasons in everyone’s life where nothing seems to be going right, where nothing you do makes it better, and everything that is done feels wrong. I had felt this way deep down inside for a very long time…not knowing how to deal with it, or express it.
So, this is my first authentically “nerdy” post and boy am I geeked about it. Why? Because it has to do with my favorite superhero of all time and Zac Snyder’s second attempt to bring him to live action film…that’s right boys and girls. This post is about the new Superman v. Batman: Dawn of Justice movie coming out in 2016.
Many people today seem to believe that evidence of true biblical faith is founded in “sound doctrine,” while doctrine and theology are certainly important and dictate to us and give us motivation for our actions…it is far from the determining factor for whether someone is counted among the saints.
Ok, so this has needed to be done now and from dialogue that I have had in the past week or so that inclination was affirmed. So in this post I am going to be as faithful as possible to a Christian view of homosexuality.
Well I said I was going to start doing this on a more consistent basis, so here I am attempting to do just that. Today I wanted to explain the importance of theology to faithful Christian living. I hear many (far too many) Christians say things like, “theology is for academics,” or, “theology isn’t as important as how you treat people.”
In May of this year my Seminary journey ends. The last two and a half years were fun, stressful, maddening, fulfilling, and irritating. It isn’t for everyone…I can assure you that. But as I draw closer to the end I am beginning to reflect on my journey and what I have learned.
Being a person feeling a call to ministry and having the training as such, I find myself on a continual basis examining my faith, ministry, the church, and mission. A conversation being had on Facebook (curse you Facebook) got me thinking about what it means to be in meaningful Christian relationships and how it should look.
Well…that got out of hand quite quickly didn’t it? Just one article on Phil Robertson from a notoriously liberal magazine and now the whole world is up in arms. The crazies on both sides came out for this one…in droves.
Blogging certainly isn’t new. People have been doing it for a few years now and while I have always wanted to blog, I never felt that what I wanted to say could be communicated in a humble manner.
Hello blogosphere! I felt it appropriate to introduce myself for those who are new, and to give some information on me that some people in my life might not even know. So let me start here…my name is Justin Eimers.
