In the year 2003; this year now being 2020 (my age - 57), I have been publishing written works for 17 years. I actually stated writing Christian Gospel tracks before this, going back to the late 1980s. Being a Youth Minister, called to teach God's Word in the earlier 1980s, I wanted to have an outreach type ministry in this calling, that would be mine - from my own heart (based directly from The Holy Bible), just as my spoken teachings were. This of course, would be in addition to the outreach programs my church designed to reach more people in our community and in other countries via missionaries called by God. I did pass tracks out in my city, that I ordered from other ministries but there was something about my putting words to paper, from my teaching perspective that I felt strongly God was giving me to share with other people.

In some cases, these fairly short devotional type tracks were on subjects that troubled Christians and those who sought to become born again in Jesus Christ, which could potentially also bring them into Christianity. In other words, I did at times address what are called "stumbling blocks" to belief in The Holy Word of God. There are several of these in particular that many ministers will not address for fear of offending one or more of their congregates. Our Father in Heaven, draws people to The Lord Jesus Christ, by influence of the precious Holy Spirit but they have the freedom to accept or reject. I saw that there were particular reasons for people rejecting The Holy Scriptures, that were obvious and widely observed by me. I would address those subjects in written tracks, in addition to verbally teaching on them.

I placed these tracks in restaurants and other places of business by permission. I used nicely-designed wooden napkin holders and the 25 or so tracks I placed in these, would be gone by the time I went back around to these businesses a week later. This made me realize that people did indeed want to understand more about the subjects the tracks addressed. Little by little however, these businesses asked me to remove these tracks because people of particular denominations were finding disagreement within them and warning the proprietors that they would stop doing business with them, if they didn't remove them from their business. To that I say "the devil works in obvious ways". I was thankful years later in the early 2000s (starting about year 2003), that I could begin writing my beliefs in Christianity online, that I personally felt certain God was inspiring me to write.

All ministers have this type leading generally (e.g. sermon notes, handing out written devotionals) but not always online. Regardless, one must still beware of false teaching and religions that tout their denomination above God. I have also since, ran my own websites, maintaining them myself and I have written for content websites ran by their own administrations. When these have a Christianity content-heading to write under, this means they will not censor you, unless you are out-of-hand, unruly or simply not writing quality articles. I have also published many books for purchase; many on Christian subjects that help meet the needs of my wife and I. With this brief explanation of how God inspires us to write our thoughts and beliefs from His Word, I now end this article with a scripture on the subject-matter I have just addressed, plus a link under that scripture quote.

Romans 8:28 - "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."

Author's Bio: 

I am a graduate of Liberty University (1996) for completion of theological studies. Bible studies are one of my most-covered book-subjects. I am however, careful to only address those subjects that I believe God has given me correct revelation on. I was a Christian Youth Minister, beginning in the 1980s for approximately 20 years (between youth ministries I served in other church capacities as well). I was also a guest speaker to churches, who invited me to present important Bible teachings to their evangelical congregations, during those same years.
