"But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have."
-1 Peter 3:15, NIV
The title of this blog reflects the nature of my intent in starting it. I want to give a reason for the hope that is within me, and explain how and why I can remain a faithful Christian in today's social and intellectual climate.
I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormon Church). Because of that, most of my posts will tackle subjects from that perspective, but I hope each entry will be personally engaging for every reader. I believe that the doctrine that can unite all Christians--belief in Jesus Christ as the Son of God, the spiritual Savior of men who will return at the Second Coming and become the temporal Savior as well--is more important than the doctrine that divides us, although differences in doctrine, both inter- and intra-denominational, shouldn't be neglected or ignored.
