WELCOME TO FAITH NATION.
The writer/editor/webmaster of this site is a Christian, a believer in Jesus and the Holy Bible. You may expect this site's content to reflect that fact. A Christian should aspire to do all he does to the glory of God. The writer also was born in the United States into a family who loved their country, America, and that "love of country" was instilled in him, very early in life. The writer is not young. The pertinence of this fact is that you may understand that he has had a "lifetime" now in The Christian Faith and this ideological realm of thinking we may characterise as "Americanism." We have had decades to "ponder, to weigh, to contemplate, to hear differing views, and to consider different perspectives." There does exist in life such a thing as a person having an "uninformed opinion" on matters, and just being stubbornly "married" to his own opinions. We, on the other hand, feel that we have come through years in the "college of hard knocks" (or experience) in these regards, sufficiently that we may say with confidence that our feelings and opinions are not of the "uninformed" sort. You have surely heard a person say "it is my considered opinion that" such and such. Perhaps we could say the antithesis of that is the young opinionated "hothead" just "popping off" and swinging his sword at everyone who differs with his opinions. The most concise definition of "considered opinion" is, "an opinion that is based on study, reason or thought." A great deal can be said for the word "thoughtful." We are confident that our readers here will find this writer/webmaster's "opinions" and contributions to be of that nature.
