This site endeavors to wrestle with Jesus, the Scriptures, the proclamation of the kingdom of God, the call and mission of the Church as bearers of the kingdom, and the challenge of living in the 21st century.
Too often we think we have it all figured out. I know I [Rob] used to think so. Then I realized that much of what I believed in about Jesus and the Bible was the result of a worldview that was in large measure foreign to Jesus and Scripture.
After years of following Christ, I realized that I had placed God in a box. It was a nice box. I had made it just for Him. And it had everything He needed. There was only one problem. God doesn’t fit in boxes. We might. But He doesn’t. This was quite a shock for me.
At the same time, this was also quite liberating! I soon learned to become okay with it. God, after all, transcends everything. So why should I expect that He could fit into my box?
Unfortunately, we tend to accept the interpretation of the day; whether it be a social, political, economic, ethical, theological, or [fill in the blank here], issue. We do so, however, often unaware of the assumptions that lie behind our convictions. Yet, we hold to them. Tenaciously. Sometimes viciously.
Determinetruth ministries aims to explore questions of truth, Scripture, theology, and the Christian life in order to determine (hence, the name “determinetruth”) what the biblical view might be and how it affects the way we live. We are not suggesting that everything we determine here is the truth. It is our conviction that we must constantly wrestle with determining what is the truth and how we might put it into action.
Determinetruth ministries includes a regular blog, podcast, zoom studies, and mentoring designed to equip pastors, leaders, and the larger body of Christ for service in the kingdom of God.
So, we ask that you join us as we wrestle with Jesus, the Scriptures, the proclamation of the kingdom of God, the call and mission of the Church as bearers of the kingdom, and the challenge of living in the 21st century.
