Welcome to ‘Curious Believer’! My name is Jason, and I started this site to document the things that I learn from the Bible and other topics that I’m interested in learning more about. I have been a born-again believer in Jesus Christ since 2005.
I was brought to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ by my wife (then girlfriend), Jackie.
During these 15 years of following Christ, I’ve had many interesting experiences. It is through these experiences that I have become the ‘curious believer’ that I am today.
I’ve grown to understand that questioning what I am being taught, or shown, needs to be filtered through the word of God and prayer.
I live by the following verse:
And the people of Berea were more open-minded than those in Thessalonica, and they listened eagerly to Paul’s message. They searched the Scriptures day after day to see if Paul and Silas were teaching the truth.Acts 17:11 NLT
Obviously, I don’t have all of the answers and quite frankly that’s what makes this walk so exciting. I’ve gone through many things in ‘church’ that would’ve made many to simply walk away from Christ.
However, I know just how real He is and understand that we all live in a fallen world, and in this fallen world we will go through many negative experiences.
What I Believe
I don’t have an ‘official’ statement of faith to show you. I’m just a regular guy who loves Jesus, believes the Bible to be the 100% inspired truth and contains no errors or contradictions.
I believe that God is a ‘Triune’ being that consists of the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.
All 3 are separate beings, each with their own distinct personalities and responsibilities. Each of which, are equally God, however are not considered to be 3 separate God’s.
I believe that God created all of existence from non-existent materials, and is an eternal God that lives outside of space and time.
God is all-knowing, all-powerful, eternal and is present everywhere at the same time.
God inspired men to write down His words in what we know as the Bible.
This Bible is how God speaks to us today, and is our guide on how to live our lives and worship God.
Jesus Christ was God in the flesh, who was born of a virgin, lived a perfect, sinless life, carried out His ministry for about 3 years, was then crucified for the sins of the world, rose again on the 3rd day, walked among the people in His resurrected form for 40 days and then ascended to Heaven, later sending His Holy Spirit.
I believe in a literal Heaven & Hell. When we die, believers go to be with God in Heaven, and non-believers go to Hell due to their unbelief.
I believe the current forms of Heaven & Hell are temporary, until God recreates the heavens and earth into eternal habitations.
I believe in a “Pre-tribulation” rapture, 7 year tribulation period, where the antichrist will reveal himself in the last 3 1/2 years of that 7 year period. Jesus will then return physically along with His angels and believers.
Jesus will reign for a thousand years from Jerusalem, and then comes the final judgement for everyone. Believers will receive their rewards in this judgement, and unbelievers will be cast into the Lake of Fire along with the devil, fallen angels, false prophet, and the antichrist.
What kind of content will this site contain?
This site will contain bible studies, as well as my research into other topics that interest me.
I do not claim to be a teacher or a subject-matter expert. I’m just curious about a lot of topics and I want to document the information that I come across during my research.
The goal of doing this is to help my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ be more knowledgeable about their faith so that they can draw closer to Christ and be more comfortable in sharing the Gospel with others.
I also hope to inspire my readers to dig further into the topics that will be discussed here on the site.
I will try my best to back up the information I come cross with credible & reliable sources so that you can go ahead and verify the information I present to you.
If you notice an error, please feel free to let me know so that I can look into the matter and correct it if need be.
This site will also contain these studies in multiple formats, such as text, audio and video. The reason for that is to give my readers different options to consume the content.
Not everyone likes to read, so the studies will eventually have audio and video formats. That way, followers of this blog can learn the same content in the format that they love best.
Thank you for visiting the site and I pray that your life will be blessed by the information contained here.
