My name is Rob Lester. I am a preacher of the gospel of Jesus Christ. This blog is intended to encourage critical thinking and honest pursuit of truth wherever the hard evidence may lead. Please consider the information presented here with an open mind and allow the facts to speak for themselves. These are little snippets I share with my congregation every Sunday before my sermon. They are intended to inform (and maybe amuse a bit), but primarily I want to encourage people to be confident in the Bible. The more research I do into observable, repeatable, objective science, the more I become convinced of the truth and accuracy of God’s inspired word. My goal with this blog is that visitors will be challenged to think critically about whatever they believe. I pray that everyone will follow the evidence with an unbiased eye and go where it leads. I don’t want to make up anyone’s mind for them, I just want to provide some information that doesn’t always get the proper attention. I will suggest and inform, but try to leave the interpretation up to the reader. Just think hard about which viewpoint the evidence leans toward. Thank you in advance for your willingness to be challenged.
