Searching

frustrated

The last couple of days have been kind of weird. I’ve been studying, researching, reading, talking, discussing, praying, searching, second-guessing, re-doing, all in a search to find truth. It’s really been amazing. It’s all through the bible. I have gone about it the right way and the wrong way. I apologize to my pals who I’ve let down with my thinking. And I’m glad they keep me accountable. While I know certain truths that are essential to knowing God. A lot of other things are, at this point in time, not so obvious to me. I want to learn the truth about those things. I realize that I come into this discussion with a certain bias, because I have thought a certain way for a long time. But I don’t want to come into the conversation trying to prove what I believe. I often times bring up scripture that is potentially confrontational so that we can question what is true (and hopefully find out), not because I necessarily believe a certain way. I’m not trying to prove something else wrong. I’m just throwing other elements into the picture. I realize I have many shortcomings in these discussions. I may not realize them at the time but I am sorry for them. I just want to know the truth! The reason I care about this stuff so much is because Jesus saved me. He’s the greatest and I want to walk with Him and know Him. I’m definitely gonna keep reading the words He spoke.

  1. As long as you believe you CAN know him. That emergent church book I’ve been reading is very good, and explains a lot about not only the emergent church but other things. You should read it when I’m finished. Anyway I think we need to actually organize this bible study thing

  2. Hi, I’m commenting about the picture at the top of this post. I am in 8th grade at the Humanities and Communications magnet at Eastern Middle School, in the D.C. area. My partner and I would like to use this picture if you would allow us, for purely educational purposes only. Thank you, and I appreciate your time. (This is very time sensitive, so I would be grateful if you could get back to me soon.) -Anna Hill
