St. Augustine ended his great work on the Trinity with a solemn prayer. He prayed, “O Lord, one God, God the Trinity, whatsoever I have said in these books that comes of thy prompting, may they people acknowledge it: for what I have said that comes only of myself, I ask of thee and thy people pardon” (De Trinitate, 15.51). Augustine’s prayer expresses my own sentiments as it concerns this blog. My desire is to promote the study of biblical and historical theology to the glory of God and the benefit of God’s people. Yet, I am under no pretenses that my understanding of history or Scripture is infallible. Therefore, I submit the contents of this blog to the judgment of the reader, with the caution that it may or may not completely represent reality. That which is consistent with God’s revelation and the facts of history, may the reader embrace wholeheartedly. For that which is of my own imagination, I ask pardon of God and the reader.
