I got asked a question I think most Christians believe they know the answer to, but just don't quite get it. I don't say that to demean anyone or seem like I'm attacking anybody! I was in that same group of people not a year ago myself.
The question I was asked was "What is the Gospel?" The traditional "church" answer always goes back to 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 which appears to lay it all out. It gives us the perfect answer, Christ came, lived a perfect life, was crucified for our sins and resurrected on the third day and is now sitting at the right hand of God. Sounds good right? It's the perfect thing to write in the little 3 page tract we pass out at supermarkets and restaurants. But is that all it is? Is that all there is to the "good news"? There are those that would say absolutely not, and I am one of them.
I've never blogged before so here it goes.
Well as you can see my name is David Miller. I was born in Baytown, TX in 1987. I’ve got 3 sisters, one older and two younger. I was raised in church, listened to all the right Christian music, went to all the Sunday school classes and memorized all the verses. Church was all I knew. Sunday morning, youth sunday night, and wednesday nights every week for almost 25 years!
The church we went to was “Non-Denominational”, I’m not completely convinced that’s not a denomination, especially these days. It feels like a denomination without an identity. At least when someone says Baptist or Lutheran there is common knowledge of what that means, Non-Denominational just opens up all kinds of questions. But nonetheless we were Non-Denominational and proud of it! A lot of those years were spent pretty blindly accepting what I was told. I went to all the retreats and youth conferences and church camps.
I am married to the most beautiful woman on the face of this planet, Ashley, and have had the privilege of having a daughter, Haniah. I love them with all that I am!
