Interpreting Your Biography

Don't let your biography shape your theology. Instead. let good Biblical theology interpret your biography.

Don't form your ideas about God, morals, or truth based on your personal life experiences, good or bad. Instead, interpret, evaluate and understand your identity and experiences through the lens of the Bible, through what God says about you, about us, about humanity. Most of all, understand who you are through the lens of Jesus Christ, your Savior and Lord, and what he said and did, and does for us.

Therein is freedom from being defined by your past. Therein is freedom to live joyously in the present. Therein is freedom to face the future unafraid.
