TOPIC: The Sope-Bocks Takes a Turn
Over the past three years The Sope-Bocks has been online, it has pretty much been a blog about "whatever" -- whatever I was thinking about... whatever I read in the news... whatever was the topic of the day on the Internet... whatever.
During the past few months, I've been praying about direction in my life -- purpose. I've asked God for direction in all areas of my life. To me, at least, it seems that more than one area of life has a definite direction (though those matters are not discussed in my blog). One part of my life that can be discussed is the direction of The Sope-Bocks. As I look over the articles and posts that have caught my eye or raised by eyebrows, I find that The Sope-Bocks has taken a turn towards topics on Christianity and how believers see the world -- along with how the world sees us.
I make no bones about it. My postings are based on my own beliefs. If I'm wrong, then I'm wrong -- and don't mind being corrected. Just remember that my faith in God and the Bible are unshakable. And just for the record, I'm happy to offer a blog with a decidedly conservative Christian slant. Lord knows there are very few of us with the 'nads to stand the heat from liberals, atheists and all of the other worldly forces that attack us for our points of view.
If you're a conservative Christian, and you read The Sope-Bocks regularly, I thank you. If you're a left-winger who happened upon The Sope-Bocks and want to choke me for my posts, I thank you. IOW, I welcome you -- no matter who you are or what POV you represent.
My sole goal is to make you THINK and consider the ideas presented herein -- whether your conclusions are in agreement or in vehement opposition. One thing I ask is that you don't label me beyond what I have labeled myself. Offer me and my "soapbox" the same courtesy I offer anyone else. The truth in love, is my motto -- Speak the truth in love (even when that means being firm). No compromises. No apologies. THANKS for being a part of The Sope-Bocks.
