There are many reasons why someone might blog. Here are the three major reasons why I do:
- To disseminate biblical truth in a digestible format. While I have written at length on various subjects, I suspect many will find it helpful to have a brief summary of, say, an interpretation of a difficult biblical passage rather than a lengthy technical argument (case in point: 1 Tim. 2:15). Of course, if after reading the blog, you want more, you can always go and check out the fuller treatment.
- To dialogue with others interested in biblical interpretation, biblical theology, biblical languages, biblical hermeneutics, and the relevance of the Christian Scriptures in today’s world. Establishing a web presence is vital if one wants to be a voice for biblical truth in our day. Dialogue can bring out the issues more clearly and serve as an important learning tool.
- To help restore biblical foundations to the home, church, and society. This coincides with the purpose of the organization I established, Biblical Foundations™. It is also the topic of my books, God, Marriage, & Family (2d. ed.; Crossway, 2010) and Women in the Church (3d ed.; Baker, 2016), and other publications. God has given me a passion to help restore biblical foundations to every area of life, and this blog is devoted to this purpose.
See especially the blogs on Marriage and Spiritual Warfare; and Divorce and Remarriage.
