I don’t really feel like being meticulous with each thing I post, reading it through and through to check for errrors. As if I’m some professional writer. I’d rather just post things after they pop into my head, if they’re interesting enough to be read, and see what people’s reactions are.
Discovering truth is a lifelong journey that we never completely reach the destination of in this lifetime — when we can only ever see reality dimly as through glass. And so, being earnest to really pursue truth over the course of my life, I’ll be believing and expressing some falsehoods along the way, because I can never know what is totally true or false. I can’t wait until I have it all figured out to speak what I believe, because I would never be prepared enough to speak, and it’s better to express myself than not, since part of the solution is the world believing the truth and so enjoying the health that comes from it. So I am responsible as a pursuer of Shalom to ever be sharing truth to the best of my ability and understanding, as all of us are. And so, if I’m still growing in experience and understanding (which dictates my beliefs), and I’ll never reach the end of God’s omniscience, then over my whole life I’ll always be in a state of believing/understanding partial truth-which implies believing partial falsehood, which means I’ll be espousing partial falsehood as truth. (1 Cor. 13: “…for now we know only in part…”)
I intend this blog to be a home for discussion. With that said, please comment on my posts. Analyze them. Argue with them. And by all means critique it as much as you possibly can. Or, if you’d prefer, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also please bring it to my attention if you find even the smallest spelling, grammar, or research error. And hopefully one day, after years of analyzing these posts and receiving critiques, I will settle on something worth presenting to the world that I fully support.
