The word “remnant” means a small remaining quantity of something. In the Bible, the word “remnant” refers to a small remaining number of people who are faithful to the Lord God. In the Old Testament, those people were predominantly Jews, who were God’s chosen people. In the New Testament, God’s people were, and are, those who put their faith in Jesus Christ.
I grew up in a Christian home and went to a Christian elementary school, high school, and Christian college (my first four years). Although I had a good amount of head knowledge, it didn’t penetrate to my heart until I was 20, when I became a Christian. As a teen, I had my first “big” question, and I have had many more since then. I have gotten answers to virtually all of those questions so far. In this blog, post by post, I plan to focus on answers to those questions and also to give a Biblical perspective on issues. Sometimes the subject of a post will be based on something random that I have heard or read. Another kind of topic for this blog will be certain verses or passages in the Bible that are difficult to interpret. I have no specific plan for how often I will post. However, since I have very recently retired, I have much more time than I used to! I also envision a wide variation in length of posts.
My intended audience for this blog is Christians. However, if you are a non-Christian, you are more than welcome to read as well. I welcome comments from any and all readers. The main thing I ask is that if you disagree, please do so respectfully. Among other things, that means to use appropriate language. I reserve the right to delete any comments that do not meet these guidelines.
If you have a big question or an issue that you would like me to respond to, please let me know, and I will attempt to tackle it as well.
