John 8:31-32
“You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

“What is truth?” was the question that Pontius Pilate asked when passing judgement on Jesus. He realised that he could only judge correctly if he was seeing the truth of the matter. He ended up washing his hands of Jesus because he couldn’t see his way through the arguments the religious leaders were throwing up to get Jesus killed. It’s my concern that a lot of Christians are doing the exact same thing today when faced with the barrage of anti-Christian thought that’s coming at us from every direction. It’s easier to wash our hands of the need to engage and go along with the flow than taking the time to think deeply about the issues, seeking to discern God’s truth in all the noise and then finding ways to communicate those truths in a way that makes sense and can be understood. It’s one of the greatest challenges of our time.

In a world that is increasingly calling that which is evil good and that which is good evil we need to be able to see the truth clearly. And then we need to know what to do with it, which is where wisdom comes in.

It’s my hope that this site will help you think more clearly on some of the confusing issues facing us in our day and age.

Blessings,
