About

I am a man in his lateforties. I am the father of four biological children and one gift who chose to call me dad. These children are true gifts from God, as their mother was told by specialists she could have no children. It took a while, and we had given up trying to have children, but God blessed us with first one, then another, then another, and then finally a total of four biological children. Then God brought a young lady into the lives my family who chose to call me dad – yet another gift.

I became a Christian in my early thirties (Dec 13, 1994) during a moment of crisis. I had to face why I had left what I knew of Christianity. I had to deal with the pain and pride I had and I asked God for a sign that Jesus of Nazareth was God’s Son. I got the sign, and I came to believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, sent by Him to suffer and die to pay the penalty for our sins, and was resurrected again on the third day to show His deity.

I’m called to evangelize and disciple people to the point where they evangelize and disicple others. I have done this in the context fo street preaching, meeting one-on-one, having someone live in my home and discussing the Bible in the areas which most obviously affected their lives at that time. I am a minister of the Gospel. I’ve taught English as a Second Language, evangelized, discipled, taught Bible, and preached in English and Spanish in five countries on two continents. I’ve taught children, teens, and adults. I have been to Church Planting Boot Camp for two different denominations (in English and Spanish). I’ve been involved in church plants of different sizes and levels of maturity in one way or another for over 10 years. My hobbies are being with my family, studying the Bible, and talking to people about God – be it through evangelism, teaching, preaching, or discipling.

I believe the Bible to be the word of God,  inerrant and infallible in its original writings. It was breathed by God and spoken to men, who then accurately transmitted God’s message through writing. God has maintained the message He wants delivered to people through time, in different languages, in different places.

This site is intended to allow discussion of theological matters, from a Christian perspective. I will attempt to show how to apply Scripture to everyday life in practical ways. Additionally, I will focus on how to understand, apply, and share Scripture, read the Bible, study it, disciple, teach it, preach it, and evangelize. Feel free to respond.

My favorite verse is Acts 17:26-27, “From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us.”

  1. Saw and appreciated your piece on eunuchs. If you feel the Lord leading you to add/edit the page here then do so. http://www.conservapedia.com/Homosexuality_and_biblical_interpretation

  2. wb, Check my last blog, about the blog. It is very small. You my friend and brother are one of those I consider ‘top of the rock’…seeking truth and biblical understanding! This is just my feelings so far as to my return to the blog’s.

    • I find that high praise, Fr. Robert. Thank you. May the Lord ease your path, guide you, give you contentment and peace, and fill you with the Holy Spirit as you move forward in your living out the life of faith He has given you.

  3. Thanks for your encouragement. I appreciate it very much, especially knowing that you and your wife struggled with having children as well. I know God is good, but sometimes it’s hard to remember. Ya know? Thanks. :)
