So I’m a liar, what else is new?

So, last time I posted I promised to write on several books I’ve read. And here it is at least a week later and I still haven’t gotten it done. Sigh.

I made a promise I couldn’t keep. At least, not yet (I tell myself).

But, it occurred to me that lies or any distortion of the truth is primary to all the rest of our sinning. Satan is called “The Father of Lies”. Thusly I have acted according to that father instead of my true father in Heaven.

Some of you are wondering why I’m being so “hard on myself”, I mean I could still write, right? While that is technically true it’s not wholly true. At what point does the delay constitute a breaking of the promise? Jesus admonished our yes be yes and our no be no. Plain, simple honest speech.

This not a long post, I’m throwing it together as I drink my morning coffee before getting ready for church on a lovely Sunday morning. So, if it has a “stream of consciousness” feel to it, well that’s either the lack of coffee or the rushed nature of it coming through. My apologies, but this topic was burning in the center of my being and had to be set free.

I hope you will forgive me for not writing the reviews (he says even though he is unsure of how many, if any, people read my blog). But The Living God sees me. And He is my master and it is His forgiveness I crave and know I will receive. He is my strength and my rock of salvation.

I hope to write some book reviews. If you are so inclined, please read them and the book. Grace and Peace

Here I stand, I can do no other

So, yes I have been a little absent. I’ve been reading. A lot.

Some were enjoyable reads, meaning not much about personal discipline but intellectual musings on philosophy and theology. Others were deep reads, ones where I must reread and slowly digest.

The first group includes some writings by Ravi Zacharias: Jesus among other gods and Drew Dyck: Yawning at Tigers ( @drewdyck on twitter) . The second include A.W. Tozer (Man, the Dwelling place of God, The Pursuit of God), Phillip Cary (Good News for Anxious Christians)  and John Piper (Bloodlines).

As part of my own need to carefully think about the books that I have read, here is my plan: to write some on each of these books and how they affected the center of my being. I will also most likely spout off on some problems with English and written words in expounding on topics regarding The Living God and the Trinity in general. Here’s hoping I actually get this done. Grace and Peace my friends.
