Freely I Give Because Freely I Have Been Given!         

On April 17, 1977, I became a Christian.

In the ensuing days, weeks, months and years, God has never charged me a penny -
For his knowledge ...
For His wisdom ...
For His understanding ...
or for His comfort, encouragement, guidance, hope, joy, promises, present actions - or ongoing pardon.

He is not going to charge me a penny -
for eternal life ...
an immortal body ...
a place in an incorruptible new heavens and new earth ...
or for all the immeasurable riches He has decided to lavish upon me - for all eternity.This photo was taken before I ever wrote a free Christian ebook.

Anything I know that has any true value - has been freely given to me.

There are many ways I am not like God.
Very often, I do not act like Him ...
react like Him ...
talk like Him ...
or think like Him.
But, this is one time I have decided to be like God.

To me - He has freely given.  So, to you - I freely give!  But ...

Do not mistake “free” - with “cheap.”
Do not assume this material is simple.
Do not assume it is shallow.
Do not be deceived into thinking it is naive ... or narrow in breadth.

I will challenge you - time and time again.
I will measure you - and expose your shallowness and inconsistency of thought ... and errors.
I will change how you view some things - maybe how you view a lot of things.
Things like love, death, and money.
Things like abortion, evolution, sex, and government ... just to name a few.

If you are a mental adventurer - I will not disappoint you.It appears each free Christian ebook and free online article ... cost me.
I will make you think ... and rethink.
Assess ... and reassess.
Examine ... and reexamine.
You will come away from my work ... different.

So now that you’re here - come on in!
The only cost is your time and energy of thought.
I do not intend on wasting either.
