The basic premise employed by the author of this site is that the Bible is God-breathed for the purpose of revealing Who God is and how to conform our lives to the reality of His person and work (II Timothy 3:15-17). The purpose of the text of Scripture is to reveal Jesus Christ (Luke 24:26-27, 44-47), who is the Living Word of God (John 1:1-3). The purpose of Jesus Christ is to reveal who the Father is (Matthew 11:25-30; John 14:9). This Jesus is the second person of the Trinity, an eternal and holy love triangle: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This God is truly infallible, inerrant, and inspired. This God is perfect, without fault. This God is the eternal, faithful, and never changing "I am." He stands forever and by Him we shall all be judged. It is in the Bible's revelation of the True Word that we find the one authoritative rule for faith and life.
This web site's purpose is to provide direction, vision, values, principles, mission, conscience. Scripture deems these perspectives important to show us, as Biblical Christians, how to lead our lives. Ideas generate consequences and consequences generate ideas. It is crucial that our ideas about God, our lives, this world and its future be in accord with the Word of God. Anything less is nothing but idolatry. If we do not stand for orthodoxy; i.e., sound doctrine or right praise, we will fall for the popular opinions, gimmicks, fads, and heresies that come along. For the sake of God’s name, let us work out our salvation by being faithful to our high and holy calling. Our lives, our families, our church, our society, and unknown future generations depend upon it.Services
The perspectives contained on this site are derived from presuppositional analysis (in line with the heritage of Abraham Kuyper). In particular, I am relying on the teaching and writings of the late Dr. Glenn R. Martin (1935-2004), long time professor of history and social sciences at Indiana Wesleyan University. His seminal paper Biblical Christian Education: Liberation for Leadership provides a summary of this approach to knowledge, reality, and life. Biblical Christian World View: What does it mean? is a shorter exposition.Tweets by @JDNickelMath
