I am starting a small series.  I would like to have great discussion with the hope that if this goes well then the concepts vetted here can be published in a book format with the intended audience to be non-Christians who are interested in understanding Christianity in its simplest form.

I want to create a small easy to read book for someone who wants to learn about Christianity with out the Christian lingo in it but it expressly states the basic beliefs of all Christians. Lets work towards this goal.

I am thinking of these few topics (I want to keep the list short) faith, forgiveness, love, hope, grace, mercy.  This is all.  Please if you disagree with me say so in the discussion area below.  I want to fine tune this prior to moving on.  You will notice that I am not talking about Christ or about if God exist.  Those topics are worthy of great discussion but that is for a different series.  I am making certain assumptions and here they are:

  1. God exist
  2. Jesus is God
  3. Bible is with out error

If you do not believe this then I am sorry this particular series is for those who do and though I eventually will have those discussions this particular series is not the place.  Thanks all and God Bless.

    I think this is a worthwhile project that will be of great benefit us all, both in our personal lives as well as in our mission to reach the lost. Bravo.
    I think that adding “success” or “successful life” will also be a great topic to discuss, since, in my opinion, this is at the very heart of Christianity and in fact, faith in God.

      Hey thanks for the comments. I just posted my first piece on Faith. You will find I have very little of my own thoughts put in yet I want to get an open discussion going. I like your idea of success or successful life. Of course in Christ that could look very very different then for those who are not in Christ. The Apostle Peter had what I would consider a very successful life but he ended up being Crucified upside down. Wow I mean look at what he was willing to do to help spread the Kingdom. The real question there is what am I willing to do? How far am I willing to go? I am not sure yet since I have not had to resist to the point of death. Hey here I am getting off topic as is easy for me to do. Thanks again I really appreciate helping me get the discussion started by posting. God Bless
