Any relationship has to start somewhere. And, to be honest, mine is the easy part: throwing my name out there for anyone who wants to grab hold. Yours is the hard part, stepping in a direction that just might change your entire life.
While legends should never be taken as absolutely literal, the suggestion is that each one of usbears a unique, individual stamp (or representation) of God.
The point is that each one of us sees God, honestly and realistically, a little differently. That doesn't at all mean that everyone has a correct view or understanding of God. Rather, just the opposite: that we are all very limited in our personal knowledge of Him. There are some things that we know about God that are true, some things that we learn, and the rest is filled in with speculation. One of the problems we've created for ourselves is that we've found it is easiest to treat the speculation as reliable as what we know to be true. And, too often, we've lost sight of the difference.
That's why it is so very important to see how the Bible is interpreted through the eyes of others, so that we test what we have come to understand against those who see things just a little bit differently than we do.
So, I'd like to welcome you to check us out, to explore what God has given us, to challenge your beliefs (and to challenge ours) and become stronger together.
