We know that at this point, with a little exception, only some of our family and friends make purposeful visits to our site and most of them...or should I say...most of YOU ;-) don't even really know what we believe. Maybe you don't see it as an issue or it could be that you're hesitant to ask, because you fear that the answer is not in line with your own set of beliefs. I'll just say for now that OUR faith is central to all that we do in our family. We do get sidetracked sometimes. It's called sin. But praise God for grace through Christ. We can see our error according to His laws. We repent, and come back inside the fences of God's truth and love.
So, once we post our statement, if you have questions, then please let us know. Let's discuss them carefully and not fall into blindly moving on without sound Godly reason. Remember the young newlywed, who' s husband asked her why she cut the ends off of the ham (obviously not an Israelite...maybe a wayward one) before she put it in the oven? She said it was because her mother had always done it. When the mother was asked, she said she was following grandmother's example. The young girl finally asked her elderly grandmother, who admitted that she could never fit the whole ham in the oven. Habit/Tradition/Circumstances.
Let there be Godly foundation to our reasoning. Let us not hold on to the traditions of men but rather search out these matters in the spirit of truth and rightousness in our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus.
"And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ"
