Welcome! This is where it all began. I no longer post on this website and some of the content reflects former convictions and understandings. Some of these posts are hard core on issues that I am softer on these days. I deleted many posts that I feared would lead people into legalism, so if you find a missing hyperlink that may be why. These days I write at Covered By His Hand.

Interesting News

While some countries are pushing their citizens to have less children, Japan is actively encouraging its people to have more!

I read this story to my wife the other day when it came out. What a shame that the Church in America is losing this battle. So many other cultures, from the muslim to the catholic and now the asian, are seeing the logical fact of strong procreation as a way to guarantee their place in this world... If only the Church would wake up and see, at least the temporal blessings, like a greater amount of 'christian' people. It seems to be another outworking of our punishment, that now even the heathen cultures are more wise than us. We surely do not trust in child-birth rates to revive christendom, but good, healthy procreation, coupled with obeying the Scriptures in the raising of godly seed would be a wondrous sight to behold!

I agree.
I know that it is dangerous to be pragmatic with our Christian faith... but even logically, it seems to make sense to have more children.
