My name is Roy, and I’d like to share with you some things about my Journey in Christ. Many of the things you’ll read about might be viewed as “unique, fascinating and intriguing.” However, I can assure you that many Christ followers around the globe have experienced many of the same phenomena!
When I began this journey back in the middle 1970’s, I never expected to experience such things (some good, some not-so-good, some great and some quite unbelievable).
My purpose in sharing this information with you is four-fold:
1. To encourage, inspire and uplift all who trust in Christ as Savior AND Lord.
2. To provide guidance and inspiration to those who place Christ at the center of their lives.
3. To show my family in Christ how their growing faith can stand up to the scrutiny of skeptics.
4. To encourage the skeptics, as well as those of “other” faiths, to take time to learn more about Christ – not just the religion of Christianity.
It is my sincere prayer this website will become a resource for many who follow Christ and even for those who do not yet know Him! Should you have questions or comments, please feel free to email me here.
In His Name,
“Without faith it is impossible to walk with God and please Him, for whoever comes near to God must believe that God exists and that He rewards those who earnestly and diligently seek Him.”
Author’s note: The word “faith” does not represent a whimsical mental assent. Rather, it represents an individual’s whole-hearted reliance upon and trust in Him – in the good times and the bad!
When I began my journey with Christ, there were two questions at the top of my list. I needed to know the answers to these questions before anything else. Here were the questions:
1) Does God exist?
2) Does He care for me?
If you think about it, I believe you’ll agree that answering these two questions is the best way to begin a journey with the person, Jesus Christ. Notice I wrote, “begin a journey with the person, Jesus Christ.” I specifically did not write, “Begin a journey with the Catholic / Baptist / Pentecostal / Lutheran / any other / church.” For to place your emphasis and trust on these churches – or any church or Christian for that matter – is to ensure that we imperfect Christians will let you down and disappoint you. Instead, you must place your emphasis and wholehearted trust on the person of Christ – because He will never let you down!
Now, people can argue all they want over the existence of God and whether or not He cares for people. My perspective comes from the fact that I made the conscious choice to find out for myself (i.e. learning from personal experience rather than believing what someone else said or wrote, regardless of whether that person was a minister, scientist, skeptic or philosopher). And, I am ecstatic to report that I received answers for both of my questions. Here they are:
1) Does God exist? Yes. He proved Himself to me through a series of events and experiences, as well as the reading and study of His Word!
2) Does He care for me? Again, the answer was an emphatic, “Yes!” You will read how I came to this conclusion on the pages of this website.
Does all of this sound far fetched? To those who don’t know Christ and only know “religion”, yes, it sounds far fetched.
Can anyone find Christ and experience what I have experienced? Yes! How, you ask? Keep reading the pages of this website and you will find out! Or, if you’d like a quick answer, email me here.
I Peter 3:15
“Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect…”
If you have questions, comments or would just like to talk because our Lord has given me bottomless ears and I can listen for hours without saying one word, giving you advice or telling you what to do – unless of course you ask me for my thoughts. So, if you have something to say, need clarity, direction, friendship or encouragement, feel free to email me here.
In His Name!
