Thank you for visiting TruthAnchor.com. Please take a moment to look over this page and you should get a good idea of what TruthAnchor.com is all about.
I became a Christian over three decades ago and have earned a Master of Divinity degree. Since then I have functioned as a teacher and also been involved in church leadership including facilitating various programs and ministering as a youth pastor. I have ministered in some missions work as well as in prison outreach.
I’ve earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree (BSN), with extensive acute care experience in Renal, Neurological and Trauma specialties. I am certified as a Critical Care Registered Nurse (CCRN) and am licensed to practice in multiple states.
Now a little bit about what we do here!
TruthAnchor.com asserts that there is one thing in life that does not change – ever. That unchanging thing is God’s Word, of course! Many people say they think the Bible is out of date; an old fashioned book that has failed to keep pace with science, technology, philosophy and all the other aspects of modern life. However, the exact opposite is true. Science, politics, human sexuality, religion, history and cultural trends are just some of the subjects we offer for discussion.
The main point to be made in all these areas is that the Word of God addresses them all, and needs to be considered in every area of life. It should be evident that the problems of this world can be traced back to what people do with the Word of God, or stated a different way, what they don’t do with it. We constantly need to redirect our thoughts and actions toward conformity with the inerrant Word of God.
TruthAnchor.com shares the Biblical teaching that God’s truth is unchanging and eternal. This principle is an anchor for the soul, and its application in an individual’s life provides peace, encouragement and direction in an increasingly turbulent world (Hebrews 6:17-20 NKJ).
Listed here are a few qualities which I esteem very highly, and these will be used as guidelines for the articles and offerings provided here at Truth Anchor.com. I promise to try and ensure these values are always kept foremost in everything we do, and by doing so I hope to build confidence and dependability in what is being put forth. I promise to abide by these principles, and so will anyone else who posts here.
Truth involves holding facts – especially God’s Word – above personal biases and propensities. If something put out by us is ever found to be untruthful, it would be an unintentional slip and it will be rectified immediately. No deceit, no tricks, no subterfuge.
Dedication involves the application of effort to get positive results, especially when that application of effort is difficult or challenging. It also involves making sure that once something is started it gets finished. The trend in the world is toward more and more instant gratification, and the cost for that is usually a lack of dedication. We won’t be doing that here.
Respect is the estimation of worth I/we grant to all individuals, both to me and from me, as well as toward the people I serve through my personal and professional life. There will always be individuals who disagree with what you say, and that is their right. However, if I am to present the Word of God and a godly attitude then respect is the best way to go about approaching others, even and especially if we don’t see eye to eye on things.
Consistency is the steadfast reliability we employ when fulfilling the obligations, tasks and commitments that have been undertaken. Dependability and consistency are traits that show excellence of character.
Finally, the defining Scripture for everyone involved in supplying articles through Truth Anchor is this;
2 Tim 2:15-16
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
We gladly welcome any interaction or comments (even opposing thought or serious, legitimate questions) as long as a ‘family friendly’ attitude of mutual respect is maintained. Vulgarity, profanity, threatening remarks and intimidation will not be tolerated. Offending posts will be deleted and the author will receive a warning. Repeat offenders will be banned.
God bless you as you draw closer to Him, and I pray He uses this effort to help you in your journey!
