As you’ve probably known, my friends, I’ve been without a statement of faith from this ministry’s beginning — and I’ve only talked about generally accepted doctrines. And that is because, initially, I had a local church to associate with, and so the matter was not that urgent. But more important, it’s also because I wasn’t yet prepared, theologically, to formulate my own doctrinal statements, or to adopt someone else’s.
However, now that I’ve struck out on my own — with Swordsman of the Word already an independent entity — this kind of situation where I have no faith-statement is no longer acceptable. Even what I said in my last two blog posts that I’m going to be orthodox in my teaching is not enough. I need now to be specific about my theology, and I need now to make a stand.
