Hello everyone,

It has been a while since my last post.  I do apologize for that, but I have had so much going on.  I recently completed my Maters of Divinity from Liberty University.  Words do not come close to explaining how exciting that has been.  My devotional Just a Closer Walk:  40 Days of Devotions to Strengthen Your Faith just recently became an audiobook.  You can check it out on Audible: Just a Closer Walk.  Lastly,  If you have downloaded or purchased any of the books I humbly ask for an honest review.  Thank you so much for following the page, and I promise I will post more often.  In the meantime check out my primary blog at Theology Still Matters.

 

God Bless,

William

Yesterday was the release of my new book Faith and Reason:  How the Two Work to Build a Dynamic Faith.  It was a whirlwind day, but it was an exciting day.  I am proud to say that the book did fairly well.  In fact, it was on Amazon’s best seller list for a few hours.  What an honor!  That is all because of your support and encouragement.  As is the case for most authors, writing is a passion.  Though I also have a full time job, I can’t imaging doing anything else with what spare time I have.  I thank you again for your support and encouragement.  IF you wish to check out the book the links for the ebook and paperback are below.  God bless you all!

Faith and Reason will be launching on March 28 at the following book sellers book sellers.  I am looking for twenty gracious people to donate their time by reviewing the book.  If you are interested please send me an email, and I will get you an ebook this weekend.  My personal email is William.hemsworth@gmail.com.  I appreciate your support more than you will ever know.  God bless you all.

We should study the Bible with honesty and sincerity. If our study is serious enough, and we approach it with an open mind, there will be times when our faith is disturbed. I view these as growing pains.

Many people would say that if things arise, which disturb your faith, you should simply put those things out of your mindsimply ignore them. The thing to do is not to ignore such things or pretend they don’t exist, but to work through them and resolve them. If the overall Christian worldview is true, then there is a valid explanation for every conflict or problem we encounter in the scriptures. If that worldview is not true, then what is the purpose of ignoring facts in order to hold onto a falsehood?

But in our society, the question of truth or falsehood is sometimes forgotten. People give every reason to believe in Christianity except that it is all, true. They will talk about “what Jesus has done” for them, or “what Jesus means” to them; they will talk about fulfillment in life, about meaning and purpose; they may talk about what a great teacher Jesus was, how important his ideas were, what beautiful thoughts he expressed; they may talk about how Christianity is still relevant today and how it combines high ideals with down-to-earth practicality; what the results would be if everyone practiced the teachings of Jesus; and so on. They may give all these reasons and more for believing; but rarely will anyone suggest that you believe in Christianity because it is true.

This post will be the shortest blog post I ever write.  I just want to share the cover to my new book with all of you.  It will be released on March 28.
