Arminian Today

A Jesus-Centered Arminian Blog

My Blog Will Be Slowing Down

I am nearing my 3000th post on my blog.  That is amazing to me.  I started this blog in December 2006.  I have tried to post every day but have missed here and there.  Over the years I have posted on many issues.  I have posted posts on Arminianism, Calvinism, cults, culture, sports, and even some humor.

But I don’t want to miss my family.  My boys are growing up so fast.  When I started this blog, my oldest son was 2 years old.  He is now 9.  When I started blogging in 2006, my wife and I had been married only for 5 years.  Now we have been married 12.  Time flies.

I want to slow down the blog.  I will still blog from time to time but I don’t want miss time with my family.  Blogging can be consuming if you are serious about it.  That is why so many blogs run well for a while and then fad fast.  It is hard to blog each and every day and you run out of topics (much like topical preaching).  I enjoy blogging because this is my outlet.  I am not a preacher.  I am not an evangelist.  I don’t teach a Bible class.  I have no theological outlet.  This is it.  I drive a truck for a living and between my work (which can range up to 65 hours a week) to my family, blogging is just something I can slow down and I need to.

Again, the blog is not ending so don’t stop checking on me.  I am not going anywhere but just slowing down a bit.  I want to spend time with my wife.  I want to be with my boys and help them become men of God.   I want to pray and read the Word of God without an eye on my next blog post.  I want to live.

I will be back but just not that much.

  1. Thank you for your blog. It has been a great encouragement to me. While I have not frequently commented, I always knew that reading your blog would provide edification and solid teaching from the scripture. I appreciate your example of grace in dealing with those you may not have agreed with on theological issues. Best wishes as you continue to serve God!

  2. Enjoy the extra time with your wife and boys and being able to read the Bible and pray without thinking about your next post.
