Hi, I’m Cody Libolt. I’ve been blogging here since 2014.
Are you “burdened”?
I’m really concerned about what’s happening in the world. Especially in our churches and in culture more broadly.
I’m concerned about the fracturing of the things I care about: churches, families, and society. I take the Bible seriously and I’m looking for ways to be the “salt and the light” in the world.
Does that describe you too?
The best thing we can do to have a good impact on others is to be intentional messengers of the truth.
My goal for this blog to encourage you in your faith—and also to encourage you to speak out about your faith and your values.

More About Cody
I live in Ashland, Oregon.
I trusted in Jesus at a young age when I prayed the sinner’s prayer and asked Jesus Christ to be my Savior and my Lord.
(Update 9/18: To avert any recent confusion, let me say I affirm a reformed theological outlook. I am a monergist and a 7-point Calvinist. Perhaps the “sinner’s prayer” model is not the best way to explain what happens at salvation. I appreciate input on this topic, as long as it is offered in good faith. I am not a trained theologian.)
I’m a Southern Baptist, and I believe whole-heartedly in the Baptist Faith and Message. I have a master’s degree in Worship Leadership from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
In my free time I enjoy reading, writing songs, playing tennis, and exploring Ashland with my amazing wife and two young kids.

About the Gospel
While I’m writing specifically to Christians, it’s important to tell the gospel here at my site. I’ve put a lot of thought into it and I set up a special gospel resource page.
It’s not boiler-plate text, and it’s not only something designed for an unbeliever. I wrote the page mainly for a Christian reader.
The better our answer to “What is the gospel?”—the better Christians we will be. Check it out at What Is Christianity?
