To My Unknown Friends

So here we are.  You do not know me and I do not know you.  By some means, you have found this blog and wonder what you should do with it. 

You don’t need to know much about me.  So that you might know something, however, you can check About.

I write each post as a distillation of the essential and entire message of this blog but if you want a more comprehensive and detailed expression its message you can see Introduction.

As for you, I have tried to write in as open and understandable a way as possible.  Although English is my native language, I’m glad that it is one of the most commonly spoken languages in the world today – so as to reach the most people.  I try to always remember that I am writing for irreligious as well as religious people, non-spiritual as well as spiritual people, and sinners as well as…actually I don’t believe there are any human beings who aren’t sinners.  Therefore, let me say that I write for those of you who sin a lot and those who sin a little.  I write for those who consider themselves Christians as well as those who do not.  I recognize that there are many varieties of Christians and even more varieties of those who are not Christians.  I write just as much for you who are atheists and agnostics as I do for those who profess some sort of faith.  I write for every adult age group, but hope also that my writing is accessible to children, who always seem to have an interest in our wonderful Lord Jesus Christ.  Even if you feel you don’t fall into any of the groups I have explicitly mentioned in this paragraph, I have written for you, too. 

I say again: You are the reason that I write this blog.  Whatever your background, race, nationality, age, gender, religious affiliation (or lack thereof), political affiliation, degree of sinfulness, or other form of human categorization, know that God loves you and His good news (of which I write in this blog) is for you.  Though I am by no means the sole source for the truth that you find here (any human being is capable of making known the truth about God’s kingdom), I am not for that reason absolved from being accurate and complete.  And I hasten to add that if it were not for the Bible, I would know hardly anything about God.     

There is no human being that I do not want to hear and believe the message of this blog.  Thus, while you and I may be unknown to each other, it seems quite appropriate for me to call you friend.  For as Jesus Christ, when He told us to how to love one another, said, “Greater love has no one than this, than to give his life for his friends.”
