Confessions of a Father: Living Biblically Balanced in a Cultural World: Sanity in Insanity
Confessions of a Father, subtitled Living Biblically Balanced in a Cultural World: Sanity in Insanity. This book and the stories I share with you have a meaning and purpose. As the pages unfold, as you see my life, my heart, my journey with Christ, you will see what the Holy Spirit has taught me. You will read how God has worked through my misunderstanding, my false doctrines, and false beliefs. You will read how the Lord has worked through my family, my home, my relationships, and circumstance to lead me into a deeper love of and for Him. You will read how God's Word and His working in my life has led me into an intimate personal relationship with Christ and how God has used His Word to correct my false doctrines, my false beliefs, and my life.
To put it very simply, you will read what I have learned. I am a child of God. The One true living God. I am a servant of the Lord and disciple of Jesus Christ. I am empowered by the Holy Spirit to seek out and bring God's meaning and purpose into my life and to bring glory to the One who created me. I am called to strive to live according to God's Word while trying to live in a world powered by false doctrine and false beliefs. He is my sanity in this world of insanity.
I want to state that this book is in no way an attempt to authenticate the Scripture. That has already been done many times over by individuals who are far more knowledgeable than I am and who are true Bible theologians. In these pages, I make reference to the Bible and books of the Bible but generally not direct citations. I hope and I pray that will encourage you to read the Bible for yourself, not just parts, but the whole Bible. I say this, I hope this and I pray this because I know that if you do, you will find what I have found. If we take the cultural glasses off and try to see the world through Christ and live according to God's Word, then we will know sanity in insanity—we will know Christ Jesus.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” (John 1:1–5).
