Well if you are reading this blog post you have most likely have come to it from the link posted on my FaceBook page. You most probably are wondering what I am talking about a new beginning. It's pretty simple actually I have decided to move my posting about heavier religious topics from FaceBook to a blog. This does not mean that I will not be posting on FB about the way God is working in my life or events I feel lead to talk about. I am using this as an expansion on a the platform FB gives me now. I am also staring a ministry and website , Empowered by Christ, which this blog will be apart of. The purpose this ministry is to forward the Kingdom of Christ here on earth through Acts 28:31- Proclaiming the kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ with complete boldness and without restriction.
You may be asking yourself why here not FaceBook? Well I have several reasons for moving to here from FaceBook. First, let me say God works in amazing ways and allows what man meant for bad to become for His Glory. It has been brought to my attention through couple a loving friends, who are Christians on FB that some of my post may have been having the opposite affect of what I wanted them to have and actually doing more damage than good for the Kingdom of God by scaring the unsaved away. My friends pointed out this to me and I was shocked to learn this, because I have never intended that to be the case, but if you are not being effective for Christ than who are you really being effective for? Yes many of my Christian brothers and sisters understand and enjoy where I am coming from in my post and I love that. The purpose however of my FB account was with one intent only to reach people for Christ, if I am scaring them away with hitting them to hard than what is being accomplished?
So through my friends letter to me God laid upon my heart to expand my horizon and start a blog and ministry with a website to help believers in Christ to grow strong in the Lord and be able to boldly proclaim Him no matter where they go. To be able to take a new baby in Christ and disciple them and help them grown teeth and be able to chew the meat that Christianity has to offer. I also wanted a place where the heavier topics can be blogged and discussed and linked to FB and Google with out scaring people who are not ready for the heavier topics of Christianity yet .
I pray that in the coming weeks and months that these blog updates will give my brothers and sisters in Christ a place to discuss the hard issues of live that feel face as a Christians. Topics such as predestination, premarital relationships, homosexuality, why do bad things happen to good people, Is anyone really good enough, and a wide range of other topics as well. Even some lighter ones at times.
For the people that are not ready for such an avenue still feel free to read and grow take it in small portions, ask questions. In the weeks to come look for updates on the website. There will be videos, pictures, bible studies and teaching tools to help you grown in Christ. If you need Christ now contact us at EBC4U@Yahoo.com We are all at different places in live and Jesus is willing to meet you their you just have to be willing to allow Him too.
Hope to be hearing from all of you soon.
