I can hardly believe it's been over three years since I have added anything to my blog. Well here goes as I attempt to write some occasionally interesting, rarely profound, but (hopefully) always positive ramblings on all sorts of topics.
As a Christian, I hope my blogs will be honest as I reflect on life as someone who has, as an adult, chosen to become a follower of Jesus Christ.
Why would a young guy of thirty-something choose to even write the name of some (possibly) bearded, carpenter fella that lived 2,000+ years ago? How did this man have such a influence on human history? How come those that claim to follow Him have been some of the most amazing people to ever live and also some of the worst?
How is it that our calendars were reset as a result of His birth? Why is the book that not only predicts His life, but then goes on to chart His birth, death, resurrection and the lives of His earliest followers, always the number one best selling book - (so consistent is it's position at the number one slot, that most lists no longer include it)?
Why have so many dies for His cause? Why do people continue to suffer rather than recant their belief in what this man claimed was truth?
What makes a pretty average guy living in the UK in 2010 choose to follow this man an His teachings?
All interesting questions (at least I think so).
Surely there must be something different about this guy?
