You may think it strange that a golf pro is dabbling in the blogosphere in the areas of Bible and Christianity. And you're probably right. Nevertheless we'll try to present a rousing attempt at stimulating theological debate. Well, on second thought we're not that scholarly and intellectual, just a bit practical.
[NOTE: This is not our first blog. There are a couple of stimulating golf blogs that you can find at these links: http://eyeongolf.blogspot.com/ and http://golfbookreview.blogspot.com/.]
Fortunately, there is a certain amount of educational background to support this venture – an M.A. in New Testament from Biblical Theological Seminary and a Th.D. from Trinity Evangelical Seminary of Florida. (Unfortunately, hard economic times did them in.)
We won't try to be too controversial although from time to time we may venture into the arena of opinion. Mostly we'll stick to just good ol' Bible study stuff. And most of this stuff will come from the Sunday School class I am currently teaching at Calvary Southern Baptist Church in Casa Grande or possibly work, thoughts and insights from a PhD. dissertation we are considering. And, of course, there will be periodic observation/opinion scribblings. You're welcome to comment on those. Just be nice.
There will also be an occasional book review since we are into reading a bit and they are really fun to do.
Of course, some will disagree and that's to be expected. But two essentials will remain constant: (1) the Bible is the Word of God absolutely inerrant, infallible in the original languages; (2) Jesus Christ really did exist and He really was God and it is His death, burial and resurrection that affords us salvation. (Not a complete statement of faith, but basic enough to lay the ground work.)
So, let's have some fun and all for the glory of God.
