On the Favor of God

The following post on my leukemia blog seemed worth reposting here. Theologically and practically, there’s a lot of context needed to it that both this blog and that one provides. It may or may not make sense to you if you’re not already familiar with me and my current situation.


About Paul Pavao

I am married, the father of six, and currently the grandfather of two. I run a business, live in a Christian community, teach, and I am learning to disciple others better than I have ever been able to before. I believe God has gifted me to restore proper foundations to the Christian faith. In order to ensure that I do not become a heretic, I read the early church fathers from the second and third centuries. They were around when all the churches founded by the apostles were in unity. I also try to stay honest and open. I argue and discuss these foundational doctrines with others to make sure my teaching really lines up with Scripture. I am encouraged by the fact that the several missionaries and pastors that I know well and admire as holy men love the things I teach. I hope you will be encouraged too. I am indeed tearing up old foundations created by tradition in order to re-establish the foundations found in Scripture and lived on by the churches during their 300 years of unity.

      Thanks, Dan!

      For those that don’t recognize his name, Dan is “The Failed Atheist.” I really enjoy his blog. With all the friends I have, I only have time to be a regular on 2 or 3 outside blogs, and Dan’s is one of them.

      You can click on his name to get there. I’m a couple posts behind because this hospital stay has been astonishingly busy, but I see yesterday’s post addresses Bart Ehrman, who irritates the stew out of me. I address one of Ehrman’s errors, concerning the formation of the New Testament, in _In the Beginning Was the Logos_, available at lulu.com.

        Lol. Just read the blog, fixin’ to watch the video. Bart Ehrman’s on our side on this one. Who’d have thought? (He’s on our side, in general, on the Council of Nicea, too, refuting a lot of the ridiculous myths that circumnavigate the internet about Nicea. The problem is, he then applies a lot of those incorrect Nicea accusations to Irenaeus a century and a half earlier, which is not accurate, either.)
