We want your Christian Testimony!

Submit your Christian testimony to us and we’ll post it on our site.

I know I’ve said this before, in other places, at other times . . . but we’d really like to have your Christian testimony! Your testimony could be the one that someone needs to hear. Sometimes it’s a bit of a pain to write something up, or perhaps you don’t think you’re a good writer at all. It doesn’t matter! We can help you edit your testimony until it’s just what you want. Jesus didn’t call us to be sedentary and keep all the Good News bottled up. He commanded us to share His Word to the nations.

No one, when he has lit a lamp, covers it with a vessel or puts it under a bed, but sets it on a lampstand, that those who enter may see the light.
Luke 8:16

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
Matthew 28:19, 20

Sharing what He’s done in your life is an easy way to do this!  All it takes is a few minutes of effort on your part to write up your testimony and email it to us.  We’ll post it for the world to read.  Our website, in terms of traffic, grows monthly.  This last month (December 2007) was our busiest month yet.  If you post your story with us, the world will read it.   You will be obeying God’s command to let your light shine.

Your testimony doesn’t have to be a shocking story, or an amazing story that will blow people away.  We’re not looking only for sensational, unbelievable, dramatic, earth-shaking Christian testmonies (although we like those too).  We just want your story of God’s grace and forgiveness in your life, whatever that may be.  Every Christian has such a story.  Every person who has experienced God’s grace has a story worth telling.  And every story is a story worth hearing.  If you feel the Spirit prompting you to share His truth with others, now is a good time to get started.  Sit down and start writing it up.  We’ll not only post it here, but if you’d like, we can also recommend other sites that will post your testimony as well.

In His service,

Eric

A Long Day . . .

Have you ever had one of those day which, when it began to draw to a close, felt like a very complete waste of time and energy? I have . . . today. I got up this morning, posted a couple outlines and a poem on truthsaves, then I got a very stupid idea. I thought I’d try to run the Knoppix distribution on my computer. Not knowing much about Linux, but knowing that Knoppix was a non-installing distribution (a demo, as it were) I thought it’d be fun to see it. According to the instructions, I downloaded it and burned it onto a disc, then tried booting my system with the disk. Nothing. I thought, “What a waste of time.” I took out the disk, restarted my computer and proceeded straight to the blue screen of death. I restarted the system. I began to do something when again the blue screen struck. I restarted again, quickly deleted my temp files, restored my registry to a few days earlier and restarted again. No more blue screen.

I then tried calling my parents on Skype. But Skype had disappeared. So I re-downloaded it, re-installed it, and then tried calling my parents. Needless to say, Skype didn’t work properly. I kept getting errors and losing my parents. So, I uninstalled Skype, looked up possible solutions, cleaned my temp files (again), deleted everything to do with Skype, cleaned my registry deleting every reference to Skype, updated my Logitech software and drivers (for my webcam), signed up for a new account with Skype and tried again. More errors. How frustrating! I had already gone through this on Christmas day and had fixed the problem by following the same steps. But today the same steps failed.

In the middle of the day I went out with my wife and Tim and we hiked around Round Lake. It felt good to get out. I took some pictures, came home a couple hours later and got busy on the computer again. Nothing worked. My website went down, my email quit working, my webcam stopped working, I was re-installing and un-installing programs . . . the frustration and irritation continued to mount.

Then, as the day wound down, I downloaded my pictures from my camera onto my computer and I stopped and started to think. I stared at the trail disappearing into the fog and I thought about the line in the Lord of the Rings:

The road goes ever on & on . . .

Then I thought about my own life. It’s a journey. It has a destination. Each day marks another step toward that destination. Did I get anywhere today? Did I step closer to my goal? What is my life’s goal? Where am I headed?

As I filtered through the jumble of thoughts in my frenzied mind the light came on. I’m headed toward Jesus. My life will end with Him. My journey should be leading me into His presence. But today I took some side-roads. I didn’t move toward the goal. I didn’t pray. I didn’t read the Word. I didn’t think in a productive manner. I let the challenges of the day defeat me and I wandered in circles. I let the little things control me. I didn’t see the big picture of life and death – of heaven and hell.

Jesus told us to:

Pray without ceasing.
I Thessalonians 5:17

Did I pray today? Do I normally pray? Do you? We should. In the Psalms we’re told:

But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law he meditates day and night.

Psalm 1:2

Did I think on God’s Word today? Did I let it guide my thoughts and my actions today? No. And that’s why my day turned to crap. That’s why I swam through a swamp of negativity today.

Thankfully we serve a merciful God.

As I travel the unpredictable journey I pray that each step will lead me closer to Him.

New Content

I’ve just posted a new poem and two new outlines.

The poem is the author’s portrayal of his struggle with addiction.

The outlines are:

1 & 2 Kings

1 & 2 Chronicles

Enjoy! And don’t forget . . . as always, we’re looking for YOUR content. We have poems, articles, and testimonies from many different authors on truthsaves. But we’re constantly looking for more. Your words could be just the words someone needs to come to a saving knowledge of our Great God & Savior, Jesus Christ. If you feel the Spirit’s prompting, send us your writings today.

Two New Articles

I have a couple of great new articles on truthsaves, thanks to Tim. Both are a result of questions asked by site viewers. The first answers the question:

Are Infants Saved When They Die?

The second article is amazing. It answers the question:

Who is Our Savior?

Tim does an excellent job of answering that question, and also of painting a clear picture of God’s plan of salvation. If you’re new to Christianity, or if you’re wondering what Christianity is all about, then this article is definitely a good read.?

Two Awesome New Christian Poems

Sometimes I wish I had the gift of crafting words to paint a vivid picture . . . but God hasn’t granted that to me. But He’s definitely granted it to others – and you can read the words of some of these gifted authors by clicking on the following links.

What I Could Not Do

Chained to Myself

If you have enjoyed these poems, send in a word of encouragement and specify that it’s for the authors and I’ll forward it on.

Additionally, if you have some poems that portray the goodness of our Great God & Savior Jesus Christ, then send them in! We would love to read your musings and then . . . we can publish them for the world to see. Your words could have a significant impact on someone else’s life.

May God bless you as you seek HIM!

Outline of I Samuel & II Samuel

An overview and outline of the Old Testament books of I Samuel and II Samuel.

I got one more outline formatted and uploaded tonight . . . it’s actually two outlines combined into one.  It’s 1 and 2 Samuel.  Make sure to read the intro, though, and you’ll see why Tim put both of these into one document.  I’ve gotten quite a bit done on truthsaves lately.  Oh, and we can’t forget Tim’s latest article . . . it’s on infant salvation.  Do infants go to heaven when they die?  Is there an age of accountability?

Outline of Judges and Outline of Ruth

Two Old Testament outlines. An outline of Judges and an outline of Ruth.

I just posted a couple of new outlines. I’m trying to get ALL of Tim’s outlines posted as soon as possible, but as you can see, I work pretty slowly. I guess that’s what happens when a person has other priorities, like a wife, a job, a house, pets . . . you know.

Anyway, you can click here to read the Judges outline, and you can click here to read the Ruth outline. These aren’t as detailed as some of Tim’s outlines, but they still provide a brief overview and some insights that you may not have thought of on your own.

Outline of Joshua

An overview and outline of Joshua, an historical Old Testament book.

It’s been a while . . . but I’ve finally posted a new outline. It’s not as detailed as some others, but hopefully someone will find it useful. Thank you, Tim! I’ll be posting Judges, Ruth, 1 and 2 Samuel, 1 and 2 Kings, and 1 and 2 Chronicles soon. They’re sitting in my inbox right now, simply awaiting my formatting. Again . . . thank you, Tim! May God infuse your life with His love as you continue to seek Him.

Two New Articles

I’ve just recently done a bit of work on my site . . . and I’ve posted two new articles.

The first covers a sensitive question asked by many . . . can women be leaders in the church?  Tim answers this question carefully but doesn’t try to soften the Biblical message.

The second article talks about “first fruits” and what this term means in the Bible.

There are many other articles on this site which answer questions sent in by viewers like yourself. If you have a burning question you want answered, send it in and we’ll send you an answer and possibly post the answer as a new article.
