The Reason For This Blog

The reason why I started this blog was to express my ideas about things I’m interested in. Strange as it may sound to some I happen to be quite fond of theology and discussing the “big questions” of humanity. The articulation of these questions varies from person to person but they essentially come down to these five:

1)  What is real?

2)  Who am I?

3)  Why am I here?

4)  What is wrong with the world?

5)  What can be done (if anything) to fix it?

I find the most adequate and satisfying answer to all of these questions is found in person of Jesus Christ as He is revealed in the Bible. As a result I have named this blog “Building Upon The Rock” based on Jesus’ own words in Matthew 7:24.

I believe that if human’s commit and orient their lives around who Jesus is, what He did and what He taught we will be free to live life as God intended here on earth and in the life to come. As a result of this reality it’s impossible for me to think that theology can’t and shouldn’t touch all areas of one’s life.

Theology that doesn’t is simply bad theology.


My aim in writing this blog is to give a holistic and robust view of theology. This is why I plan to provide posts related to theology in the family life or the work place (Mondays), weekly exegesis of scriptural books (Tuesdays), how worship shapes and molds us (Wednesdays), a comparison of various systematic theologies on a given subject (Thursdays) and an aspect of Christianity and culture (Friday/Saturday).

The hope is that readers will see the importance of theology and how it should not only teach us more about who Jesus is but beckon us to become more and more like Him.
