As God's fellow workers we urge you not to receive God's grace in vain.
For he says, "In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day
of salvation I helped you." I tell you, now is the time of God's favor,
now is the day of salvation.
I believe that the record of Jesus Christ in the Bible is not only
historically accurate, but that the eyewitnesses present at his
appearances and his works give testimony and validity to his claim
to be the Son of God.
A lot of people who grow up "churched" think Christianity means ritualistic activities, a cycle of gee, I feel guilty, confession, gee I feel better. Ritualism is "religion" in the most base sense; it's as far from Christianity as you can get. As was the fate of the Pharisees of Jesus' day, ritualism is a sure way to miss the point.
Christianity, if it is anything, is truth. It's about knowing God. Imagine it! I've discovered something true about the universe, and something fundamentally deeper and more valuable than the (albeit interesting) truths I learn in scientific pursuits.
In as much as Jesus has given me freedom, I desire to serve him wholeheartedly. I desire that people know I'm a Christian by my behavior and my words. Not that I'm "like those religious kooks," but that the grace that Christ has given me is shown in my actions to others.
Feel free to ask me about it. I'd like nothing more than to share my relationship with Him with you in a respectful fashion. If you're like me, you like seeing what things are about from the convenience of your web browser. Obviously, knowing the one God of the universe isn't exactly comprable to finding a man page for nfsd, so it's not really the best way to learn. But maybe you'll find something here that piques your interest, and gives you an interesting topic to discuss with a Christian you know. With that warning, here's a mondo list of online searchable Bibles, Bible studies (useful for finding out about some topic, and what the Bible has to say about that topic), and other resources.
But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.
