Just Checking

I have finally created my blog. This is one of my goals I set when I started here and now I have done it. It only took a little insomnia to get the job done. I turn 33 today. In my short time on this earth I have experienced a lot. Some good...some not so good...some terrible...but all educating. I think that as long as we are open to learn from anything, we will. I have been accused of being closed minded when it comes to being a Christian...which I find amusing b/c everone who accuses me of that refuses to even listen to anything referencing Christianity...Isn't that being close minded.

Anyways, when it comes to that, as far as I am concerned the discussion is closed. In math, a group is called closed under an operation when you can reverse the order and the result is the same. Real numbers are closed under addition. 4 + 2 = 2 + 4...they both equal 6. They are also closed under multiplication but not under subtraction and division...right? Well, as far as I am concerned, the case for the need of Christ is also closed. Sin must be paid for, it will be paid for...and it has been paid for if you accept the conditions of the offer. Question is, what will we decide. Will we pay for it ourselves (hell) or will we accept the free gift (Jesus Christ)? This operation is closed. As far as I am concerned, so is my mind on the matter.
