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.

This will help YOU too!

  • I’m going to read and think about every response.
  • You’ll get better writing from me.
  • You’ll get less articles you DON’T want, and more you DO want.
  • You’ll have a big influence on the direction I go with the blog.

I really appreciate you doing this! I’m looking forward to your response.

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.

What’s With The Title?

I titled my blog “If We Will Live” because I will talk about important matters—life, reason, and faith.

Not all people chose to fully live. Even for those who intend to live, not all paths lead to life. What is the way of life? That is my question. I answer that the way of life must be discovered.

On Earth as It Is in Heaven

“Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” — We pray this. Do we take it seriously? What does it mean? What do we actually believe about God’s will being done on earth?

Ask many Christians if the world is getting better or worse today, and they’ll say “worse.” In many ways they are right. Some would even say it will keep getting worse until Jesus returns to set things right. Is that God’s plan for the world? That Christians would be a dwindling remnant? Perhaps.
