Why Death Nor Life?

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:38-39

Herein lies the basis for our blog. Death Nor Life is focused on reflecting the glory of Christ and His love for us. But this is not a shallow, unintelligent love. We focus heavily on the pursuit of knowledge of the Word of God as it is living and active, sharper than any double edged sword and is inspired of God and profitable for all life.

With that said, we will ruffle feathers frequently! We strongly disagree with those who say there can be great love of God without knowledge. Jesus spoke of a time when worshippers would worship in spirit and truth. So we need to be in the Word completely and thoroughly every day learning and loving God through Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit alone.

Scripture convinces us that it is always Christ holding on to us, and not the other way around. He is our joy, our savior, our king. In Him we have peace, even when the world is crumbling. We live by the authority of Christ and His Word, and are not in conversation with Him, but listening to His leading us because He, being the head, holds all things together in Him.

Thus our vision is to make treasuring Christ the ultimate goal and prize.

Sola Scriptura. Soli Deo Gloria. Solo Christo. Sola Gratia. Sola Fide.

    I couldn’t agree more with all you have written here, Jakob. Glad to know you are a Calvinist. Are you also a dispensationalist? As a former Presbyterian, I now make a pretty good Baptist, but most of all am humbled to be called a child of God, with Jesus as Brother and Savior and LORD. Amen

      I actually lean a bit more towards Covenental Theology, but have actually not officially decided.
      Thank you for reading!
