With so many LDS-themed blogs out there, why on earth do we need another one?
This is exactly the justification I've used for a long time to avoid doing this. Besides, I'm way too busy to maintain a blog and I don't have anything to say anyway. Been telling myself that, too.
Trouble is, there are some important things that need to be said, and I can't find anyone else saying them. Also, there are some critical things that others are saying, but they need to be said again. And again.
These are monumental times and incredibly important happenings are taking place right under our noses. Too many of us are asleep, unprepared, unredeemed.
It's time to come unto Christ--not in some etherial, spiritual way in our hearts, but for real.
I've been spending so much time writing emails to family and friends lately, I figure I can start writing them here. It really came home to me a few days ago when I wrote an 8-page email and realized it really needed to be presented as several blog entries. So here I am.
Who am I?
Nobody. I'm not important, I have no church authority and no right to tell others what they should believe.
But I can invite, explain and persuade. The Lord has asked me to do so, to the best of my poor ability. So here I am.
I invite criticism and correction. Please state your sources and let's learn together. I don't need or want praise.
OK, that's about the best introduction I can give. Let's get to more important matters.
