My name is Tony, I’m a Reformed Christian. I’ve been blogging since February 2017. Here is my testimony. You’ve probably already noticed that my blog is named after Jonathan Edwards’ most popular sermon “Sinners in the Hands of An Angry God”. Jonathan Edwards is my favorite theologian.
The goal of my blog is first and foremost to glorify God. Secondly, I wanted to provide a layman’s understanding without watering anything down. I’m no scholar and I don’t pretend to be, but the issues that I blog about mean a lot to me and I won’t write a post about a topic I haven’t studied.
Warning: I try to be funny sometimes
I like to use humor to illustrate my points sometimes, my friend coined this type of apologetics “ApoLOLgetics”, so don’t be surprised if some of my posts contain humor that may or may not appeal to you.
I’ve been saved since November 13, 2011. As far as my academic background is concerned, I’m in an associate program for applied science. I’m always either reading or writing.
Why the Logo?
I have chosen to make the cross inside the atom my logo for three reasons. First, it reminded me of 1 Corinthians 15:22 “In Adam(Atom) All Die, but in Christ all shall be made alive.” Secondly, it reminded me of Augustine’s popular quote crede, ut intelligas, which is Latin for “believe so that you may understand.” Thirdly, It represents my personal thoughts on Christianity and Science. I’m not a neo-Ussherian, I can be upfront with you right now and say I don’t think the earth is 6,000 years old. I don’t think believing in God should preclude us from appreciating and studying science.
Why the Tagline?
The Tagline “Self-correcting theology” is sort of an epiphany I had when talking about theology with friends. We were talking about how old heresies get brought back up as new things, while sometimes people hold on to old views simply because they’re old. I thought that to be a successful system of thought and subject, it has to be self-correcting. The reason why science is successful is that it’s self-correcting, it goes where the evidence goes. Theology needs to be the same.
Statement of Faith
This by no means is exhaustive, but to give you a general idea of what to expect and where I’m coming from.
The Nicene, Athanasian and Apostles’ Creed.
The Five Solas
The Majority of the Westminister Confession of Faith, the Savoy Declaration, and the three forms of unity.
