A Cynic’s Path to Forgiveness

My name is Nathan… and I’m a cynic (I prefer realist). I’m also a Christ follower. I grew up singing the songs, walking the walk, and only swearing on those rare occasions I dropped hammers on my foot (don’t worry I asked for forgiveness afterwards). Now that I am going to college (and know everything), I have this compulsion to ask questions about the things that I was once so sure about (erm… maybe I don’t know everything). This blog will hopefully be a way that I can wrestle with these questions. There are a few things that I am fairly certain of right now:

1. Jesus loves me.

2. Jesus wants me to love God and love others.

3. I’m not very good at accepting the first, and I’m even worse at doing the second.

 

I guess much could be added about my failure to live a life free of sin and Christ’s act of love on the cross to rectify that failure. These things too are important and I believe them, but I think I want to start from the ground up. So hopefully this blog can explore culture, my faith, theology, controversial ideas, and a desire to learn more about God.

 

Maybe someday, God will even forgive me for all of my questions.
