    I just read your ‘about’ and thought ‘right on!’ I completely agree… it is so much about being with Christ right where we are at!! What happens if we neglect our own town, job or family– look at what happens to kids, because their parents shrug them off and let them watch MTV, and the internet instead of spending time with them. Great post and great site- thanks for your honesty.

    I firmly believe as well that in this day and time we are all cross-cultural missionaries, even here in our own country. I think we witness not only to non-believers of many different cultures, but also to non-believers who may be of our own ethnicity, whatever that may be, but of a vastly different post-modern mindset. I think in many ways this is our challenge and in your “about” post you have spoken well.

    Thank you for giving such wise advice. In our age too much is based on being a ‘good person’ and not what the Bible says. You haven’t fallen prey to that.

    I’m just now discovering your excellent site, with the informative content and helpful sources. Great job. Btw, as I read the first comments in the latest newsletter, I had a quick question. The newsletter refers to a story from the BOM. When I clicked on the link, I was taken to an article by Boyd K. Packer. In Packer’s article, there’s a reference to Alma 42. Actually, as usual, Packer sounds a bit more severe than the BOM itself. I didn’t find a detailed account, in which Jesus is quoted as commanding that anybody to pay his or her own debt. Packer, however, typically does say such things. Later LDS “revelations” are much clearer about this, as well. I think “Apostle” Packer has exaggerated what his own church’s scripture actually says in Alma. Another passage in the BOM (“We are saved by grace, after all we can do…..”) might have worked better for him. Thanks again for your own very good site!

    Hello Dave! I have gone through your blog, and let me say it’s really uplifting especially to those who struggle with the fear of sharing their faith. This is the right place for all; a blog written in simply with the correct message. God bless you.

      Thank you for your kind encouragement. I think the Lord is leading this blog to do just that — to share our faith, to proclaim God’s Word, to introduce Christ’s presence into the world. Blessings!
