What is "Saved For Later?"

Thank you for visiting the Saved for Later blog. My name is Brian Michael Kindall.

Two thousand years after His ministry, Jesus Christ has living and dead followers, numbering in the billions.

 

This population is made up mainly of people raised on the faith since their youth or who were saved as adults after being non-believers for most of their lives.

That's us. We are saved for later.

The church has many youth classes and Bible camps aimed at teaching and rearing the next generation of Christ followers, but everyone in line at an altar call (who likely did not believe in God yesterday) is an adult for whom there is often little offered beyond a quick repeat-after-me prayer and a flyer with listed service times.

 

There are exceptions, of course, but how well does the average local church communicate a Christian message to someone who either strongly doubted or didn’t believe in Christianity just a short time ago?

If you have similar questions, then you want to read this blog!

 

Our new faith is fragile, and yet the classes and programs one might expect to be waiting for us – considering the lifelong teaching made available to the children of existing church members – are simply few and far between by comparison.

I want to provide what I sought when I first thought I believed in God.

On this blog:

  • We will explore and discuss the gift of faith given to us after a life of disbelief.

  • We will speak to one another about our reasons for disbelief in a language we understand.

  • We will confront the differences between the teachings and actions of Jesus Christ and the teachings and actions of Christians and what those differences represent.

  • We will be honest and straightforward about the hypocrisy and hatred that exists in the Christian community and what our role is in light of it.

  • Together, I hope that we will see God's beauty and majesty, what He has done for us, and who we are in His Son, Jesus Christ.

My goal

 

I encourage you to read something far more important than this blog…the Bible.

 

That’s right. It would be best if you didn’t stay here. If I do my job, you will be eager to read the Bible independently, find a church, and make it a better place than when you arrived.

 

What I learned and hope to pass on to you is that as new to it as we may be, the church is our church, too.

I hope this blog helps, inspires, and excites you by making this new, foreign world less so. Most of all, I hope this blog leads you to the Bible.

Sound good? Let’s go.
