Keeping the blog
I have been debating whether to keep this blog or just let it go. After much deliberation, I have decided to keep it for several reasons.
First, as a good Reformed Protestant Christian, I believe that every good and perfect gift is from the Father (Jas. 1.17) – this includes writing. I do not believe that every talent and ability is a “spiritual gift”, but every gift – spiritual or otherwise – is from God. With that being the case, the conscious and thankful use of a gift points to the giver. That means that when I use a skill that God has given me and use it for God’s sake, He is glorified.
Second, I enjoy writing.
Third, writing helps me organize and categorize my thoughts so that I can better express them to others. It makes me a better thinker and communicator. Hopefully, by putting some writings on a blog, others will also be able to use them to challenge or clarify their own thinking.
Fourth, one should never start something that he does not plan to finish. Why start a blog without a plan to update it.
So yes, I will be keeping the blog. I will probably change the URL, but I will keep it up.
