Communication Style

This blog is called If We Will Live. The tone is one of optimism and sincerity—for if we will live, we must choose to identify the path.

A few words on my style and intentions: I believe the words I write. I take a tone of certainty that comes from having logically integrated my own views into a coherent, reality-based whole. Since my purpose involves changing and teaching the reader, I plan to write on challenging and controversial topics. Guaranteed, my ideas will lead to disagreements.

The Vision — If We Will Live

“Where there is no vision the people perish”
-Proverbs 29:18

This blog is about looking to Scripture to find out who God is, why we worship him, and how we flourish. It’s about what we must do, if we will live.

Introducing My Website

Hello, and thank you for reading.

I’m Cody Libolt. I’m a worship leader, a music teacher, and a graduate of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville. At this blog I explore questions about Christian Life, Reason, and Faith.

Speaking Out Like John Galt

One of the best lines in literature is “This is John Galt Speaking.”

The moment comes at the climax of Atlas Shrugged. Read it.

What follows is my own John Galt moment. If I had a stage, this is what I would say. As John Galt did, I would tell you who I am and what I stand for.

Just as with Galt, the ultimate point is not to know who I am. It’s to find out who you are.

Getting to Know You

This year my blog has gained readers, so I thought I’d try something new.

I want to know more about who’s reading. The more I know about you, the more I can tailor the blog to help you.

I created this 5-minute survey to get your feedback. I hope you’ll take a moment and provide your thoughts. It’s really valuable to me.
