God’s Honest Truth

This page discusses the Christian worldview as recorded in the Bible because the Bible is God’s Honest Truth. The writings come from an Evangelical perspective. That perspective includes affirmation of the inspiration and inerrancy of the Bible from which ensue important truths such as the doctrine of the Trinity and salvation by grace through faith in Jesus. Some articles will defend the validity of the Christian worldview with apologetics. Other articles will offer interpretations of the Bible. Some articles follow a scholarly style, while others come from a looser, more popular style.

Cory began working toward a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) from Global University Graduate School of Theology in 2020.

Cory’s Testimony

I guess since I want you to view my work, you deserve to know a little bit about my faith journey. I come from a Southern Baptist home and background with some Pentecostal influences over the last few years. My family attended Midway Church in Villa Rica, Georgia, and still does. Midway is a great church. Pastor Todd Wright preaches straight from the Bible. My family’s influence and Pastor Todd’s preaching formed the backbone of my understanding of Christianity, and I made the public profession of faith and received baptism at Midway.

Throughout my later teenage years, I became rebellious, and my faith began to weaken. The problem was, although I may have been somewhat intelligent, I was also arrogant and ignorant. Intelligence, ignorance, and arrogance form a deadly combination. As I learned things in the secular world, I started to believe the lie that the Bible contains errors and contradictions. This delusion did not cause me to denounce my faith, but it created doubts. Peter Abelard claimed, “By doubting we are led to question; by questioning we arrive at the truth.” My arrival at the truth would come, but, at this point, my doubt merely made me question.

Although my doubts did not eradicate my faith, they did weaken it to the point that I began to rebel. My rebellion began with sneaking out to drink alcohol with my friends and grew from there. By the time I reached college at eighteen, my search for the next party had eclipsed my search for God, and that process culminated on May 2, 2012, at about 2AM.

After drinking the night away at a Braves game and some bars, I was driving home and crashed head-on into a BMW. The two young men in the BMW lost their lives, and I received a fifteen-year prison sentence. My weak faith would be tested like never before. Jesus began the sermon on the mount, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven,” (Matt. 5:3) and the aftermath of that wreck has taught me exactly what He meant. I was at my lowest point, buried under a mountain of guilt and worry, and then I read what Jesus said: “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matt. 11:28-30). 

God sustained my faith when I was spiritually bankrupt, and through that process, He redeemed my intellectual doubts as well. In prison, I was at rock bottom. I was distraught over the pain my choices caused, and I was afraid of what was going to happen to me. So, I started reading the Bible again. Then, I began studying apologetics and theology. I learned that Christianity is true, that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, and that it is possible to be both an intellectual and a Christian at the same time. I am still working on the intellectual part, but that epiphany changed my whole perspective on my Christian faith.

My newfound understanding of Christianity came at a price. The dire price of that knowledge requires that I do not hoard it but, instead, share it with as many people as I can, so here we are. I hope this site helps you get to know Jesus better. God has a plan for your life. Get into the Word. Get into the presence of the Holy Spirit, and start living the life the Lord created you to live!
