This blog exists to present diverse viewpoints concerning a range of topics from biblical concepts and interpretations to pressing current events that receive little OPEN discussion in many Christian circles. Such topics tend to get oversimplified, polarized into extremes, or made into "black and white" issues by the POPULAR opposing sides. I love Jesus and ALL His people, especially those who do not know Him yet. I am independent politically and refuse to align with either Democrats or Republicans. I aim to question some of the prevailing notions that fly about accepted and untested in Christendom. My intent is not to offend or cause division among believers, but to search out the freedom that deepens believers to become a Body that is diverse, yet unified, truthful, yet encompassing, justice-seeking, yet compassionate, and well-informed.
To care for the poor is to know God (Jeremiah 22:16)
God is with the vulnerable and the poor. God is in the slums, in the cardboard boxes where the poor play house. God is in the cries heard under the rubble or war. God is in the debris of wasted opportunities and lives. And God is with us, if we are with them.
