Then He (Jesus) said to them, “Therefore every scribe instructed concerning the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure things new and old.” Mt 13:52 KJV
I write and produce this site myself to help others in their spiritual journey, with nothing expected in return.
I believe that the Bible is the Word of God – the knowledge for my Christian belief. I do not challenge the Bible, but I do challenge some traditional interpretations of it. I search for plausible and sensible answers to questions facing Christians today.
There are approximately 300 major divisions of the Christian faith with around 33,000 denomination. (According to World Christian Encyclopedia by Barrett, Kurian, Johnson, Oxford Univ Press, 2nd edition, 2001). So obviously there are a few different opinions of what the Bible has to say.
I make no claim to be 100% accurate as there is no way to prove such a position. It is my best attempt at understanding and answering my own questions about “fuzzy doctrines” my Christian experience has taught me all my life.
At my age, my only intent is to seek sensible truth that I can get really excited about and to better understand who we are, who God is, and what our true relationship is all about.
The only objective is to help people better understand the Christian faith and experience a better life … and to share it.
I have accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior, have studied the Bible carefully for decades, and have enjoyed a long and happy Christian life. I am an ordained deacon and ordained minister of the gospel. I have no other formal theological credentials to offer. I have a BA in Art Education and have never been to seminary.
I served ten years as a church pastor and several years in music and youth ministry.
I have celebrated 57 years in my first marriage (and still going), three children, six grandchildren, and four great grandchildren so far.
Work in process
I do not allow comments on the articles as I do not care to argue over 33,000+ opinions. I share my opinion because I feel led to do so, not to convince you to accept it. I simply hope it is helpful to some who are seeking their own answers.
All articles are subject to change if God shows me a better answer than I currently hold.
This site has no affiliation with any church, school, business or organization of any kind. It is totally independent and not constrained or influenced by any constituency.
This site is produced and funded by Douglas D. Simpson as a public service.
This site is still in development. New articles and edits are added as research, time, and the Spirit of God allow.
