Pilgrims Progress Today: About This Blog

This post and the "About This Blog" page accessed through the Pilgrims Progress Today header are my blog objectives and the scriptures they are based on. This post and the "About This Blog" page are identical because now and in the future I want my readers to have easy access to my blog's mission.

Colossians 1:9-10

"So ever since we first heard about you we have kept on praying and asking God to help you understand what He wants you to do; asking Him to make you wise in spiritual things; and asking that the way you live will always please God and honor Him, so you will always be doing good, kind things for others, while all the time you are learning to know God better and better."
Pilgrim's Progress Today has three major objectives.  
  • To help us correctly follow the narrow path.
  • To help us live a life that pleases God.
  • To help us know God better and better.

I am not here to teach you. My writings in this blog are my personal journey as I try to walk the narrow path faithfully, please God by the way I live and get to know God better and better. In the same way, by reading my blog and contributing your comments, I hope you will walk along with me and strive to achieve the  same objectives.

"Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders build in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stand in guard in vain." (Psalm 127:1)

Unless the Holy Spirit is at work in what I write in this blog, it's a waste of my time writing it or your time reading it.

One of those listening was a woman from the city of Thyatira named Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth. She was a worshiper of God. The Lord opened her heart to respond to Paul's message (Acts 16:14).

And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual. (1 Corinthians 2:13)

My prayer is that when you read Pilgrim's Progress Today, you don't approach it with a critical spirit. Instead that you come with your heart opened by God so you can hear anything that the Holy Spirit wants to say to you through the blog. My writings are only an intermediary between you and the Holy Spirit. In my best case scenario, God through His sovereign choice, leads you to Pilgrim's Progress Today because the Holy Spirit has a special message for you. For all I know, the special message might not have anything to do with what I've written.

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. (1 John 4:1)

As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed. (Galatians 1:9)

Please test everything I write. If there is anything you think is false, please let me know. You'll be doing me a big favor. The last thing I want to be is a false teacher and be accursed.

1 Corinthians 9:14

In the same way, the Lord has commanded that those who preach the gospel should receive their living from the gospel."

Romans 16:18

"Such teachers are not working for our Lord Jesus, but only want gain for themselves."

A major portion of the income I receive from Pilgrim's Progress Today will go to support missionaries. I believe as a Christian, spreading the Gospel and supporting those who spread the Gospel is our main purpose in life. Also I believe it's awful to use the Gospel for my own selfish motives.

Pilgrim's Progress Today believes every Christian is given unique spiritual gifts and wisdom through the power of the Holy Spirit to perform specific tasks to fulfill God's purposes . We welcome comments that are spoken in Truth and Love that help build up the Body of Christ.

"Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of Him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work." (Ephesians 4:15-16)

We also welcome comments from non-believers on the condition that they are written in a respectful and courteous manner.
