This blog chronicles a series of messages between myself and a friend who I have chosen to call “Thomas” though that is not his real name. I chose the name “Thomas” above all others due to the early Christian Apostle Thomas, sometimes called “Doubting Thomas,” and his questioning nature. Questioning is not a sin nor a human failing. I believe that questioning brings us closer to God if we are honest; it is doubting that takes us from Him and His light from us. For that reason, I like to call the Apostle “Questioning Thomas” instead.
My friend, Thomas, is in this modern day such a questioner as the Apostle Thomas was in his day. My hope is that by publishing our conversations of faith, other Thomases in the world will read these things and gain or regain hope.
My name is Joseph, and I ask questions too, and that’s okay. I have come to learn that God is an abundant giver of answers if we approach Him in faith, doubting nothing (James 1:5; Acts 10:20). Through my answers from God, I sincerely hope that you will have your questions answered too.
I suggest beginning with The First Reply if this is your first visit, and if you don’t read through everything, remember the date of the post you read to so you can pick up where you left off.
This blog is also a personal response to an invitation from a living Apostle to “sweep the earth with messages filled with righteousness and truth” (https://www.lds.org/prophets-and-apostles/unto-all-the-world/to-sweep-the-earth-as-with-a-flood?lang=eng) and from an invitation to carry on the torch from John Pontius’ Unblog with my own words (http://unblogmysoul.wordpress.com/2014/08/31/all-good-things/).
