Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. - Psalm 119:105


PlanksandNails' goal is to be a catalyst in encouraging the followers of Jesus Christ to pursue the truth of the Bible for themselves. I believe that in our fast paced society, we end up consuming "spiritual cotton candy," not realizing that we are not being fed and nourished by solid food, which is the truth of God's Word. I believe this is the only way to understanding the true character of Jesus Christ and who we truly are in Him. The counterfeit is infiltrating every facet of the "Christian" faith today. The only way to expose it, and not be deceived by it, is honestly seeking truth, having a relationship with Jesus Christ, and reading the truth of His Word.

Do we really know what we truly believe in?

Can we detect the the real from the counterfeit?

Do we really know whether we may be decieved or not?

In order to be salt of the earth, we need to be "seasoned" with the truth of God's Word.

 

Apart from theological issues, I have interests in exercise, music, the spiritual and the conditions and circumstances of the consequential environment we live in.

I hope these articles will provoke thoughts and discussions as you peruse and help connect some dots.

God Bless!

 

"Truth is found by those who honestly seek after it." 

 

Here is something to think about:

 

Do you exist? 

Is it possible for you not to exist? 

If it is possible for you not to exist, but you do exist, then you must have been caused to exist.

You cannot bring yourself into existence, since something must exist first in order to bring something into existence. It is illogical for something to exist and not exist at the same time.

Something must have caused the beginning of life to exist because there cannot be an infinite regression of causes. In order for something to cause the beginning of existence, there must have been a first cause.

An infinite regression of causes ultimately has no beginning, which means that there would be no beginning of exist.

Since we have life and exist in a existing universe, there must have been a first cause or beginning to exist.

Therefore, there is an uncaused cause of all things that do exist.

The uncaused cause, or beginning of life and the universe is God.

God is eternal; therefore, uncaused. 

 

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”  Revelation 22:13
