I haven’t done much blogging so far this year. If you were used to reading the blog on a regular basis then you may be wondering what happened. The short answer is that I was busy. Allow me to provide an update on what I’ve been up to and hopefully I’ll have time to post some more articles in the near future.
I have spent a lot of time working on my thesis. I expected to write about 50 to 60 pages on the subject of the “sons of God” and the “Nephilim” from Genesis 6:1–4. It soon became clear that the paper was going to be much longer. I have just sent in the second draft and it is nearly 100 pages. I have one more round of revisions and then the defense. In the coming weeks I’ll share some of the things that I’ve discovered during my research. For now, I’ll just state that it has been extremely fascinating.
We have also put together a study guide for The Truth Chronicles series. The guide contains 15 lessons covering many of the important issues addressed in the books. I am putting the finishing touches on the teacher’s guide which will be available as a free download. I’ll post more information about the guide as soon as we make it available for sale.
I’ve been trying to stay informed on some of the major issues in the world. Of course the tragic earthquake and tsunami in Japan is at the top of the list. Please continue to pray for the people of Japan and that many will turn to the Lord during this time.
The Wisconsin budget battle and all of the protesting has also been of interest to me. I have numerous friends and family members who are teachers in the state. While I have my own views on the situation (which I hope to write more about soon), my main concern is that the Christian teachers make the most of the situation by showing people how to be content in any situation. So whether you agree or disagree with what is taking place, you need to display a Christ-like attitude. Paul stated that he learned how to be content in every situation (Philippians 4:11) and we should follow his example.
So there’s a very brief update on what I’ve been up to. I am planning to post a couple of times a week, so be sure to check back. Thanks for reading.
