I’ve slowed down with this blog; here are some reasons why:
1) As my regular readers know, I just published a book called The Church of Christ is Built on Rock, and that took some time. I believe it is a great book about the historical understanding of Jesus’ words found in Matthew 16, and I show how the Protestant understanding of the passage is flawed; I outline each of the Protestant Church of Christ’s best and most indicative arguments. I know of no other book that is equally easy-to-understand and thorough about this topic.
2) I am also writing a book called The Noble Bereans Were Catholic, and I hope to have it available around the middle of 2015. It will include my posts about the Protestant Rule of Faith (sola Scriptura), and I will show how the Protestant Rule conflicts with the Christian Rule of Faith (Church + Scripture). Much of the content of that book (some is already available on this blog) has already been referred to by leading apologists such as Dave Armstrong, Nickolas Hardesty, and Bryan Cross. Of course, the book will include some goodies not found on this blog.
3) A specifically Catholic idea – that we are to “tend the garden” that God has given us – has been on my mind. It is true that this blog and my books have helped hundreds of Protestant Church of Christ members (and other “Restoration” Christians) become Catholic (they contact me), but my garden is bigger than that! I’m a small business owner. Actually, I own several companies, and I am a leader in one small niche that is in need of direction. I build mobile dog grooming trailers for entrepreneurs, and I have helped hundreds of people in three countries start their businesses. I want to serve my customers better, I want to give them more value, and I want to do it in a specifically Christian way. So what I’ve been doing is writing “the industry’s textbook” and I’m developing a YouTube channel that will provide valuable insight into the Christian way of doing business. Basically, I want to share with my garden what St. Benedict taught:
He who labors as he prays lifts his heart to God with his hands.
But I will be back to writing for this blog probably on a monthly basis. Thank you for your time.
