Hello! So you’ve stumbled across this page… It’s good to see you!
A few facts about myself

Purpose of blog
I’ll try to write posts on God and Christianity, but I’ll also write about different topics. Please note: I’m only 16, so likely will get a few things wrong in the posts. I reccomend you read with discernment, seeing if the bible passages actually say what I think they are.
Let’s get to the theme of the blog now: If you’re a Christian, Jesus has paid the price for all your sins and you’ve repented and belived, accepting his gift of a relationship with the holy and awesome god and a citizenship of heaven! Isn’t that great!
The world won’t accept that, though. We are now sheep among wolves, Christians in a world that hates Jesus and that will continue to attack his followers and try to deprive them of their faith (this takes many forms). This can be scary at times, but there is this wonderful god who has lived a human life (including suffering) promised to always be with us (Matt. 28:20) and given us a very precious gift: his words (I’ll do a post on the bible sometime I hope).
So, if you think about everything our lord has done for us (Seriously! Take some time to ponder on how abonimabal our sin is, how extremely holy god is,…), and if you think about how great god is, why will you want to live the way of the world? As my friend Hannah said, we are to be “in this world, but not of this world”. It’s definetly much easier said than done, but God has sent his spirit, his awesome helping spirit, to us and it is a massive privallege to please god!
So, it’s in my hopes and prayers that God will use this blog to help build you up in your life with the articles. I’ll also be writing on a few other topics, though.
May God be praised and glorified forever!
Your brother in Christ, Ben
