How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    My Dad was baptized when I was 10 years old. From then on I was growing up in a divided household. My parents fought like cats and dogs, instigated by my unbelieving mother. However, it did seem that it was my Dad that changed and thus brought all this on, plus avoiding Christmas and Birthdays was just plain weird. As a result, I didn't want to hear it. But at 13 years old I had enough of the fighting and took it upon myself to fix my family. I prayed to whoever if anyone is up there listening and made my petition to learn the truth. Purchase my first bible, a New Revised Standard Version, and began reading. After several months I decided to share what I was believing it to say with my Father, who simply said to keep on reading. But when I shared these things with my mother, she bit my head off and accused me of talking to my father behind her back. A light bulb turned on for me then. Afterwards I invited both of them to give me literature. Reading with an open heart and an open mind led me to believe beyond the shadow of a doubt that Jehovah's Witnesses had the truth. I progressed to being an unbaptized publisher by 15, but it was short lived. At 16 my worldy peers got the best of me and drew me out to sea, where I was tossed about until coming to my senses at 25. I realized that fixing my depressing and debauched life meant returning to Jehovah. Fortunately, my girlfriend had a listening ear and we we're married and then baptized at the exact same time in the summer of 2002.

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    Family - doing things together with my wife and children is wonderful - a family that plays together (and prays together), stays together. I'm a Bible teacher and much of my interests center around following in the footsteps of Jesus Christ (1 Peter 2:21). I'm also an internet junkie - probably not a good thing.
  • My favorite books
    God's Word, the Holy Bible (I've collected over 40 translations of this book in Hebrew, Greek, English, and Spanish).
    Truth in Translation: Accuracy and Bias in English Translations of the New Testament by Jason David BeDuhn
    The Role of Theology and Bias in Bible Translation by Rolf Furuli
    And then all the following...
    What Does the Bible Really Teach?
    Keep Yourself in God's Love
    Is There a Creator Who Cares About You?
    The Bible - God's Word or Man's?

  • My favorite music
    Such a broad range that it is too much to list. Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, Fantomas, Peeping Tom, Mondo Cane, and more), The Cure, Andrea Bocelli, and classical music too. Popular music is okay, until it has been played to death. Probably shouldn't mention some of these. Sadly, you have to listen to an album and weed out the bad songs on just about anything these days.
  • My favorite quotes
    And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free - Jesus at John 8:32

      At least one, that I know of, is differentiating. C'mon it's pi day.

      Cotangent, tangent, cosine sine,

      Three point one four one five nine.

      Easy as pi :D

      Beware the Ides of March; or the Nones or the Kalends, These three points were counted (usually from a backwards formula) in every Roman lunar month. To have the calender catch up to the sun, their was an intercalary month added when called for. Every month had an Ides. We are more aware of the Ides of March because March 15, 44 BCE was the assassination date of Julius Caesar (Actually Gaius Julius, not to be confused with Orange Julius). We never use the word Ide in our language but a Roman coin in 42 BCE reads" Eid March."   

      Please don't kick me off for being OT. You know how my small mind goes when I read a math term or two in someone's  status.
