I love chess. I enjoy sports, chess, math, reading, hiking, and history.

Please read my blog.

The most important thing about me is this: I believe that Jesus is the son of God, born of a Virgin, sinless, who came and died for our sins, rising again on the third day.

As C.S. Lewis said, "I believe in Christianity as I believe that the son is risen. Not only because I see it, but because I see all things through it."

I'm homeschooled, a fact that makes some people consider me "brainwashed", "uncultured", and "incapable of thinking for myself". However, I disagree with that opinion. I am proud of being homeschooled and wouldn't trade it for anything.

If you are a Christian youth, join the Christian Youth Chess Team, and if you are homeschooled, join the Christian Homeschool Team.

I accept friend requests from CHTers, and CYCTers, and will accept challenges.

What I Believe

I believe that the whole of Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation, is the divinely inspired Word of God -- infallible and inerrant in its original manuscripts, complete and solely authoritative for the believer in all areas of life, religious and non-religious.

I believe in one eternal God, perfect and holy, who is the Creator of everything, and who has revealed Himself to us through His creation generally and through His Word specifically.

I believe that God created man in His own image, for His glory, and because of this, we believe in the sanctity of all human life, from the moment of conception until its natural end. I believe that He created us male and female, and that gender is therefore an unchangeable, God-given attribute. I believe that one man and one woman is the basis of and only acceptable form of marriage (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:4-6), and any intimate relations outside this context is sinful.

We believe that man is separated from God by his own sin and, apart from the unmerited favor (grace) of God, is incapable of being saved. I believe that the price of sin is death, and torment in hell.

I believe that God, in His great love, established a plan to reconcile mankind to Himself. To that end, He chose the people of Israel as His own possession (Deuteronomy 26:18-19), calling them with an irrevocable call (Romans 11:29), and promising that the whole earth would be blessed through them (Genesis 12:1-3; 26:2-4; 28:13-14). 

I believe that God sent to us His one and only Son, Jesus (Hebrew: Yeshua) the Messiah, who is Himself both fully man and fully God, and who is One with the Father. I believe in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His death that paid the price for our sins through His blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His rising up to the right hand of the Father, and in His promised return to reign in power and glory.

I believe Jesus is the only road to salvation, the one Mediator between God and man, and that belief in Him is the only way to receive the free gift of eternal life.

I believe that God's Holy Spirit indwells the believer, sealing and renewing him and enabling him to lead a godly life according to His will and His Word. I believe that by His Spirit He sets apart believers and unites them into His spiritual Body on the earth: the Church.

I believe in the coming physical return of Jesus, the resurrection of the dead, the judgment of all mankind, the new heaven and new earth, and the end of the age, when the righteous in Jesus will praise and glorify God in His very presence forever.

You don't have to agree with me on that. However, I am not being judgmental or hurtful to say that. It is my opinion, and I believe wholeheartedly that it is true.
