Hello and Welcome,
This blog, AI | AD, exists to explore and wrestle with ideas and issues that Christians face while living their lives between two worlds*. A Christian lives between two worlds, or perhaps it would be better put, two worldviews. We live knowing that this world is broken and that it is and has been infected by sin since “The Fall”. The other worldview is that this is a world that Jesus died and rose from the grave to save. A Christian must put their hope in “The Resurrection”, where Christ rose from the grave after paying the wages of our sins with his death. He rose from the grave and forgave us of our sins so that we could pursue grow in holiness in our lives without the fear of condemnation knowing that one day he will return and set the world back to the way God intended it to be. Until that day, we will wait where those two worlds meet. Welcome to AI | AD.

Blogs below will encompass a wide variety of topics, and they will all be written with the purpose of starting conversations about key issues that vex modern society. I hope to write in what I refer to as a “Scalpel “style and not a “Knife” style. What that means is that I hope to write in a way that pierces the flesh of issues to get to the source of their problems so that I may expose, diagnose and hopefully heal issues that plague those stuck between these two worlds. What I hope to reframe from is writing in a Knife style, which I define as writing in a way that attacks issues without purpose or direction. Writers who write with a Knife style, usually aim to accomplish nothing more than popularity and applause which is evident in their use of rhetoric, fear mongering, logical fallacies, and other problematic literary devices that result in long winded and often mindless and hostile written pieces.
I always try to write with the intent to reflect the love of Christ. I pray that you read with the intent to understand. And above all, praise Jesus Christ in all things.
