When I first began to write this blog in 2015, I was living in India and I was extremely confused about my Christian faith. This blog was intended to journal my feelings, my thoughts and sources that were helpful in Muslim-Christian apologetics.
After coming back from India in 2017, I began to spend a lot of time reading only the Bible. I broke away from store-bought Bible studies because I was hungry for God and nothing could really satisfy that hunger but the Word of God. It was during this time that I was first introduced to the Doctrines of Grace. It would be a fair assessment to say that they rocked my world, and I could not escape the fact that those doctrines were not made up. They were really taught in the Scriptures as a whole. The Bible was beautifully harmonized in a way that I had never seen before.
My life has never been the same ever since.
Four years later (2019) after my first blog entry I can see that I don’t really agree anymore with many of the things I wrote. I don’t hold to the same positions I once held to. And praise God I don’t follow many of the teachers I was following back then (Ex. Andy Stanley, Christine Caine, Bethel Church – just to name a few). I wanted to delete the original posts, but I have decided to leave them there as a testimony of God’s faithfulness. The Lord Jesus indeed keeps His sheep and He was so good in protecting me from wolves. He also guided me into sound doctrine and for that I will praise Him forever.
Looking back at my own reflections and writings, I can only smile. I was wrong – dead wrong – on so many things. I really understand that women are in different stages and seasons in life – specially in their Christian walk. Many women are babies in their faith, and many are suffering. I was one of them. I wish an older woman had encouraged me to grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ, and for this purpose I write.
It is my hope that as I continue blogging I point people to Christ. There is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. I pray the LORD will open blind eyes and change hard hearts through the gospel of His Son.
