Is God real or just an outdated concept? Who is God? Do we need God or can we get along fine without Him? These were some of my questions about God before I came to faith. This site provides answers to questions about God, evidence for God's existence, His care and love for mankind, and His provision for joyful living both now and into eternity through His Son, Jesus Christ.
Martin Luther OSA (German: [ˈmaɐ̯tiːn ˈlʊtɐ] ( ); 10 November 1483 – 18 February 1546) was a German monk, Catholic priest, professor of theology and seminal figure of a reform movement in 16th century Christianity, subsequently known as the Protestant Reformation. He strongly disputed the claim that freedom from God's punishment for sin could be purchased with monetary values. He confronted indulgence salesman Johann Tetzel, a Dominican friar, with his Ninety-Five Theses in 1517. His refusal to retract all of his writings at the demand of Pope Leo X in 1520 and the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V at the Diet of Worms in 1521 resulted in his excommunication by the Pope and condemnation as an outlaw by the Emperor.

Steve Sjogren’s newest book will help anyone wanting to live a better life. It would be an especially good gift item for people who don’t go to church or don’t believe in God. They won’t get preached at, but experience the honest wrestling of a guy who went through a set of horrible circumstances and learned to live a better life after dying during gall bladder surgery that went very wrong. CORRECTION: Scripture isn’t the ultimate self-disclosure of God. Jesus is. But it’s authoritative because it’s the normative revelation of the God we meet in Jesus. the personal blog of Steve Sjogren — Confessions of a Stumbling Servant
