About Me

Welcome to my blog, Of God and Society.  I started this because I have found there is a dearth of good sites that look at cultural and theological issues from a truly biblical and Christian perspective.

I have been a Christian since 1977 and have seen changes in the way many Christian doctrines are interpreted and taught.  In fact, many churches do not even teach doctrine and our responsibilities to God, but focus almost entirely on how we can have a better life here and what we can get from our Father.  Unfortunately, this places the focus on us and how we can benefit rather than on glorifying our wonderful Lord and savior Jesus the Christ.

It is also unfortunate that many Christians and churches have caved into public pressure and have advocated positions and acted in ways that are absolutely contrary to the scriptures and ultimately the creator of everything that exists.   We seem to fear the disapproval of people and society rather than desiring the approval of God.  We then rationalize it with the idea that other people do it, therefore it can’t be all bad.

My goal is to speak against the spirit of this age, as well as the false doctrines that have infiltrated our churches and cast a light on that which is besmirching the good name of Jesus and what He has done for us. I welcome your comments on any or all of the posts here on Of God and Society.  My hope is that in discussing issues that impact all eternity we all, myself included, can grow in the knowledge of our new life, and be more pleasing and useful to God and His incredible plan.  I pray that this will be a learning adventure for us all.

In His Love and Service,

    So glad to meet you! After years (and years) of enjoying teaching English as a Second Language, I'm now writing books for children. I knew I was supposed to be teaching ESL, and now I'm led to write books for children. Trusting that your blog is also the result of leading, I pray blessings on it and on you!

      Glad to meet you as well. He has called me to write, and I enjoy sharing my heart and discussing with others. I shall have to look up some things you have written. My daughter teaches pre-school in Argentina and she is always looking for children\’s books. Pray God uses you to bless others with your talent He has given you.
