1. Why do you believe in the Bible and Jesus Christ? There are several parts to this answer, but we will mention only two. One key reason is that we don’t have enough blind faith to believe in the overwhelming statistical odds of the other alternatives such as evolution. The most important reason is that in studying the Scriptures for ourselves, the Holy Spirit, one member of the triune God, came inside of our inner being and assured us of the reality of the Bible (a book which has been attacked like no other throughout time yet outlives its attackers) and changed our lives. The reality of the conversion experience and the ongoing real presence of God in our daily lives provide an ongoing inward confirmation of the truth of the Word of God.
2. Why do you refer to your home as Misty Mountain? Our retirement home is on the side of a mountain and often as we look towards the south we see fog or mist in the valleys below—it just seemed to be an appropriate name. Additionally, several years before building our current home a good friend and wonderful artist gave us one of his original paintings which was entitled “Misty Mountain.”
