May it never be! Let God be true, and every man a liar. As it is written: “So that you may be proved right when you speak and prevail when you judge.” (Ro 3:4)

About

I am a non-denominational Calvinist, by which I mean, I hold to the view of TULIP.
T – Total Depravity
U – Unconditional Election
L – Limited Atonement
I – Irresistible Grace
P – Perseverance of the Saints

I am non-denominational because I have differences and agreements with the numerous reform and dispensational denominational Churches. I am a fundamentalist in the sense that I believe the 66 books of the Bible is God breathed. It is the final authority in all matters of life and conduct 2 Timothy 3:16. I believe in the perspicuity of Scripture 1 Corinthians 2:14-16, but that does not mean there aren’t some hard things in Scripture 2 Peter 3:16. We are to diligently study the Word of God using good sound interpretive principles (hermeneutics). I agree with St. Augustine’s motto of “Unity in the essentials, liberty in the non-essentials, and charity in all things.”

The essentials being the gospel of Jesus Christ, whose finished work on the cross and His resurrection, has provided us with the only way to God John 14:6, Acts 4:11-12. The doctrine of soteriology will be discussed in detail in this blog, but a quick summary is in Romans 10:9-10. I am theologically conservative but ecclesiastically liberal. Ecclesiastically liberal in the sense that, I view the fragmentation of Christian denominations as a human weakness and do not live up to the ideals of God Ephesians 4:2-4. The gospel is the essential and all else are secondary issues. Although secondary issues can be pushed into the essentials if it conflicts with the essentials of the gospel. This will also be elaborated in the blog.

Finally, another controversial issue among Christians is our view on Genesis 1 and 2. I am a literal 6 days Creationist. I believe that God created all that exist in what we know as the universe in 6 literal days and we are now living in the rest of the seventh day. These 6 days being long periods of time, showing the Earth as billions of years old and the universe is billions of years older still. The Bible is the special revelation from God and He has also revealed Himself in His Creation Psalm 19:1-3, Romans 1:19-21.

I do not have formal theological training but I am a Scriptural Berean Acts 17:11. I am trained in the tent making skill of electronics CAD engineering. Soli Deo Gloria
