Hello! A few things about myself.

First of all, I'd like you to know that I was a nobody, nothing. I am made of dust. I was clothed in the rags of my own self righteousness. That self righteousness was damning me to hell! I am a sinner. I deserve hell. But 2,000 years ago, a man who was wholly man and wholly God came down to this earth and died a torturous death for me, on cross, planted in a hill called Golgotha (the place of the skull). This man's name was Jesus Christ, Jehovah, The Son of God. He payed the price of His Blood and death for my sins, and not just my sins, but the sins of EVERY.HELL.BOUND.SINNER. that has lived or will live. I excepted Christ as my Saviour, and He saved me from hell, gave me a new life, washed me in his redeeming Blood, clothed me in the spotless white garments of His righteousness, and saved me from  eternity in hell.

If you are reading this and you have not excepted Christ as your personal Saviour, then let me tell you something. I don't care who you are, or who you think you are. The Bible says in Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God". Have you sinned? You say you are a good person...well, it is written in 1st John 1:8 "If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us". Still think you're a good person? Well, even a good person cannot escape hell. It is written in Revelation 22:8 "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death". I am pretty sure that you have lied before, and that alone makes you a liar. It is written in John 9:44 "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." According to this verse you, my friend, are a child of the devil. It is written in Revelation 14:11 "And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name." That's you, brother. You say you don't worship him. If you are not a child of God, you are a child of Satan and therefore, you worship him even if you aren't a witch or something that is abominable. Without Jesus, it is hopeless for you. But Jesus Christ is the way. John 3:18 says " He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." Without Him, you are dead in trespasses and sins. With Him, you have a hope, you are saved from an eternity in hell. I'm sure you've heard this verse but John 3:16 says "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." So what do you do to get saved? If you pray to God, and acknowledge that you are sinner, and that you are hell bound, and that you have the faith to believe He can save you, and if you ask him to come into your heart, and save you, He will. Romans 10:9 says " That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." What will you do with Jesus Christ?

More things about me:

I am a strength trainer, weightlifter and power lifter. My main power lifting movements are the dead lift and squatting. I "worked out" sporadically from about 9 years old and upward. However the last year and a half I have been hitting the gym quite hard with a 5-6 day a week schedule. Fortunately, I am blessed with a strong healthy body, and an excellent strength coach (my dad). I am semi-interested in focusing a little bit on getting into my state power lifting contests for my weight class. I am a fan of Stefi Cohen and Eddie Hall, two amazing power lifters. I am not a body builder. I get highly offended at being called a body builder tongue.png. I frequently have to rant about the body builders that I see at the gym who don't know what they are doing and can't lift beans. Not to mention that they can't pump out a few easy reps without grunting like a maniac or sending spittle across the gym. However, these are just my personal opinions, since I care more about being strong and doing it with flawless form rather than looking like I have pumped my muscles with chemicals. Allegedly the strongest man in my state goes to the gym I go to. I haven't verified this as fact but I would like his signature sometime.

I am a photographer. Working to be semi-pro at some point in the future. My photos are here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/186576849@N08/

Some of my other hobbies include archery, guitar, soccer and a whole variety of outdoor stuff. I take pride in calling myself a backwoodsman.

Here are some of my favorite songs:

It Is Well With my Soul

Arise my Soul, Arise

Look ye Saints the Sight is Glorious

Come Thou Fount

Before the Throne of God

He Knows My Name

And Can It Be

Welcome Home

Brighter Day

Approach my Soul

Paid In Full

I Shall Return

Be Still My Soul

Be Thou My Vision

Complete In Thee

The Value of One

Those are all hymns, so here are some of my non-hymn favorites. By the way, I pretty much only listen to hymns, gospel hymns, some bluegrass hymns, classical and Celtic music.

Celtic\Native Irish or Scottish:

Tarbolton Reel   

The Skye Boat Song  

O'Carolan's Journey To Cashell

Mist Covered Mountains of Home

Conviction demands response.

Commit beyond retreat. Kyle Stephens

Profession is not possession. Peter Ruckman
