(NOTE: FBC is moving! As of this weekend (July 25-27, 2014), this site’s content is transitioning to its new, permanent location at www.FireBreathingChristian.com. The site you are now visiting will soon close down, so please check out the new site, subscribe to the new blog feed, and let me know what you think. Thanks for your interest, support, and patience! ~ SAB)
The Fire Breathing Christians site was launched on September 11, 2009.
My blog, Fire Breathing Christian, which you are visiting now, started up on August 31st of the same year. Both of these sites were launched so that Common Believers (meaning all who have been supernaturally saved by grace) might be encouraged to “swim deep, make waves, and be dangerous” in the best, biblical sense.
The FBC site and this blog are dedicated to the exploration of a wide variety of topics from an explicitly biblically submissive, orthodox Christian perspective, all aimed at the glorification of God and a call to repentance and perpetual personal reformation.
Everything from politics, philosophy and theology to movies, music and literature (yeah, this includes comic books) will be covered here.
The general idea is that every area of a Christian’s life is to be subjected to biblical standards, and through this approach the Christian can find true peace, joy, happiness and fulfillment.
That said, though the light provided through God’s Word is indeed perfect, I most certainly am not.
My blog posts are never intended as anything more than one man’s attempt at sharing what he believes to be a biblically submissive Christian perspective. While I am hopeful that my words will be of benefit, I always hope to encourage readers to test every word and concept that might flow from my keyboard in light of the perfect truth of Scripture.
I can and will make mistakes. Believe it or not, I even welcome growth through correction (though sometimes I may seem stubborn about it, so please hang in there). And while we’re on the subject of growth, it is my hope and prayer that, as the weeks, months, and years roll on here at the Fire Breathing Christians blog, you will be able to see change, growth, and increasing conformity to Christ in me through the record of these writings.
That would be very cool, I think.
Finally, a friendly word of warning: As the title implies, things can get a little hot in here.
Okay, maybe a lot hot.
Politics, religion, education, economics and the like are not subjects to be shied away from here, so if you’d rather avoid those sorts of thoughts, click away now or forever hold your piece.
For those who are interested in mixing it up in those areas, please feel free to join in and let your opinions be known.
Dissent is welcome!
I only ask that you keep in mind that people of all ages and backgrounds are encouraged to read and participate here.
Please post accordingly.
So there you have it! I hope that this all sounds so irresistibly wonderful that you’ll jump right in, swim deep and make some waves…
