I usually don’t like to use this blog for this, but I have quite a few readers here, so I thought I would this once. Thanks to all of your prayers it really looks like we have made it through the cancer ordeal (as much as you can “make it through”); I am scheduled to have a CT scan this next Monday (please pray I’m “clean”), and then I was supposed to head back to work (at Toyota [corporate] Portland, OR) next Wednesday. Unfortunately, and I mean, unfortunately, I just found out today that I have been laid off (along with 25 others) — effective this Friday.

I just want to put this out there for prayer, and also as a notice that I am officially looking for employment. If you know of anything, especially ministry oriented (my background would fit best with pastor of evangelism and Christian education) — also if there are any would be sponsors out there, I would really like to earn a PhD in theology, and be a professor, let me know — please let me know. I can send you my resume or CV upon request. We don’t really understand what the LORD is doing, but we do know He is doing something (and only the best). Thank you all!!!

A Little Thomas Torrance

“God loves you so utterly and completely that he has given himself for you in Jesus Christ his beloved Son, and has thereby pledged his very being as God for your salvation. In Jesus Christ God has actualised his unconditional love for you in your human nature in such a once for all way, that he cannot go back upon it without undoing the Incarnation and the Cross and thereby denying himself. Jesus Christ died for you precisely because you are sinful and utterly unworthy of him, and has thereby already made you his own before and apart from your ever believing in him. He has bound you to himself by his love in a way that he will never let you go, for even if you refuse him and damn yourself in hell his love will never cease. Therefore, repent and believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.” -T. F. Torrance, The Mediation of Christ, 94.

Philosophy of Blogging

“I count myself one of the number of those who write as they learn and learn as they write.” - St. Augustine cited by John Calvin

“We must always keep in mind that the reason the Son of God came down from the hidden throne of the eternal Father and revealed heavenly doctrine was not to furnish material for seminary debates, in which the display of ingenuity might be the game, but rather so that human beings should be instructed concerning true knowledge of God and of all those things which are necessary to the pursuit of eternal salvation.” Martin Chemnitz, Loci theol. ed., 1590, Hypomnemata 9 cited by Barth, CD I/1, 82.
