In recent days I’ve been thinking about my experience blogging for the last six years. I wondered if I should continue or discontinue. I’ve decided to press on, but with a little different approach based on what I’ve learned.
When I first started blogging I assumed that most active members of the church hunger and thirst to grow spiritually. I thought I could persuade others in the bloggernacle to greater spiritual heights by bearing testimony and reasoning from the scriptures.
It turns out I was overly optimistic. I recently read Lehi’s vision of the tree of life and this confirmed what I’ve learned over the last six years as I’ve interacted with numerous church members in the bloggernacle: not everyone is interested in grasping the iron rod and following it to the tree of life.
Nonetheless, I believe it is important to recognize that their are many who are striving to follow Christ with real intent. I hope to make this blog a resource for them and any others who decide to fill their lamps with oil.
The 4th Article of Faith will be my guide to the kind of content I’ll make available.
We believe that the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel are: first, Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; second, Repentance; third, Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; fourth, Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.
I’ve made a few changes, first, I decided to turn off comments and use a survey approach instead. The main reason I’m doing this is because of time restraints. At the end of this post, and each post thereafter, there will be a link to a survey for those interested in participating.
Drop by in the days ahead and let me know what you think.
