first post

My name is Jason. I have a deep passion for helping students experience the joys and challenges of the Christian Journey. The main reason that I am starting this Blog is to collect my thoughts in one place and hopefully if someone comes across my Blog, they would find encouragement and hopefully an occasional challenge.

What does it mean to be a Christian? Where can I draw the line between fundamentalism and passion for Jesus? Those are the questions that I am dealing with personally.

I wouldn’t say that I’m having a crisis of faith, but I am trying to discover who I am in my faith.

I went to a Bible College, and I earned a degree in Biblical Literature. I learned a lot about the Bible, but not a lot about being a passionate Christian. My denomination is a traditionally fundamentalist denomination and that’s great. I love my denomination, I love the structure, the support, the foundational doctrines, but I’m not as uptight as “they” have traditionally been.

This whole transformation that is going on in my life, is very confusing and a little upsetting, but everyday I have a small victory in my love for Christ, and my love for people. And that encourages me greatly. But it’s interesting because I can’t just go around and share these concerns with everybod, so I am coming here to share my concerns, and my thoughts. Hopefully I won’t become a Heretic or anything. I desire to have an authentic lifelong faith, that is constantly growing, and daily being amazed by the grace and power of God.
