Dear Reader

This blog is intended to be read by the curious Christian who wants to know more about their God, more about his Word, or more about their faith. 

I am a pastor in a Reformed Presbyterian Church.  I have degrees in theology and philosophy and my interests lean towards things like Biblical Theology and Hermeneutics.  I don’t have pet theologies and not a lot of soapboxes, but I do enjoy putting ideas into words.  I sometimes seem to have different questions than other people, or possibly I don’t have the same hang-ups that other people have.  Either way, that can be toxic for a blog.  The Internet seems committed to soundbytes and lynch mobs - I am not interested in either.  I rarely think a good idea can be summed up with a sound byte.  I actually have a desire to expand ideas, not reduce them.  And I have to admit the idea of lynch mob is just no good - especially if my questions make me the subject of one! In short, I am somewhat skeptical of the medium I have just entered.  But after sitting by and watching the mean people on the Internet gobble up some of the nice Christians I know, I have decided to offer something different.  And I am putting my thoughts out there asking for some kind of benevolence from you, the reader. 

I admit, here and now, I am not always convinced that I am right and I rarely enjoy a good theological argument.  I often enjoy a good question like others enjoy a fine wine.  It is certainly more fun to me than a quick answer.  I am happily Reformed and Confessional, but I do sometimes see things in shades of gray rather than black and white.  I am more curious than polemical.  So if that is the sort of thing you enjoy, then welcome to my blog.   I appreciate your interest in my ideas and I am confident that God will lead you into all truth, even when I am wrong.

Sincerely,

Reed Dunn
