Reconciled to God

Every religion across every continent has some sort of plan through which mankind can be reconciled to their Maker. Even secular humanism, that believes we evolved from the earth, promotes the idea that we need to make sacrifices for the sake of preserving Mother Earth. No matter who or what we believe our Maker to be, we all want to be acting appropriately according to our purpose.

The very premise that we must do something to be in line with our Creator's plan indicates that something about our existence is not complete. It would then follow that something is wrong with our existence. Many people decide that it is better to disregard the notion of a supernatural Creator, at this point. However, it is important to note that, whether you believe in God or not, even Darwin noted that nature is cruel. No matter what, cruelty exists, but it can be defeated.

The Bible teaches that the world is broken because people chose to disobey God. This is not the end of the story.

Because God loved His creation, particularly human beings, so much, He sent His Son into the world. Jesus, God's only Son, lived a perfect life. He showed us how God intended us to behave. He battled against the wickedness and the cruelty of the world. He suffered at the hands of the cruel world and was killed. But in His death, He conquered the evil that drives the world's cruelty. He was obedient to God, up until His very last breath and was brought back to life by the power of God.

It is from this point that we realized that Jesus needed to die for us, if we were to have any hope of being at peace with God. Mankind deserved God's wrath for breaking God's laws, but Jesus paid the price that our wickedness deserved.

We would have been God's children, if it were not for our disobedience. Instead, from birth, we are children of the devil. Despite this horrible condition, through Jesus' sacrifice, His death and Resurrection, we have been given the right to be adopted into the family of God, once again. By God's grace, we can be reunited with Him forever.

The World God Created

This is not meant to be controversial; just a simple acknowledgment of reality. The world that God created, in the beginning, was very good.

This means that there was no death, there was no suffering, and that life would fill the whole world. What we call predators, existed, but they were not predators back then. They were herbivores. Diseases did not exist. Wars did not happen. Injustice was not even a word in the vocabulary of the first humans.

This derails the whole notion that God cannot be good if He is all powerful; or that he cannot be all powerful if He is good. God is good, all of the time. God is all powerful, without fail. But what we are told in 2 Peter 3:9 is that, "The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance."

God created a world that was good, but mankind rebelled and brought death, sin, and suffering into God's good creation. Since then, the human condition has been tainted by wickedness. People have been groping in the dark for a solution to our sin-cursed condition. 

God has given us a cure for our brokenness: Jesus Christ, His only Son. He took upon the penalty that we deserve for our misdeeds and reconciled us to God. No one has authority to forgive the wickedness of people except for Jesus.

Only through Jesus can we be restored to God, as new creations, and set apart as heirs to God's eternal kingdom. Do you believe this?

Christmas Giving Project!

We are in the last quarter of the year and people are starting to think about how they might give to causes that are dear to their hearts. I am pleased to announce that my wife and I have taken upon a project to raise support for the Cleveland Pregnancy Center, a non-profit organization that seeks to help women who are facing an unplanned pregnancy. Unlike other organizations, the Cleveland Pregnancy Center chooses to promote the life of the unborn child.

In 2016, Ohio performed over 20,000 abortions! That means that 20,000 innocent lives were terminated before they could even meet their family or have a chance to be loved in this world.

The Cleveland Pregnancy Center provides hope. They provide ultra-sounds and encourage putting children up for adoption. According to their website at, more than 5000 abortion-vulnerable women coming through their doors have chosen life for their children. We are all created in the image of God, and we seek to remind those, who are in crisis, of this beautiful reality.

How can you support this cause? Join my wife and I in raising money for the Cleveland Pregnancy Center by purchasing a copy of our upcoming books: 1.)Wisdom for the Journey in Parenting: 50 Simple Tips for Christian Moms and Dads and 2.)Giganotus Rex: The Battle of Midland (as well as the prequel, The Wrath of Giganotus Rex). All profits from September 2018 through December 2018 will go to the Cleveland Pregnancy Center.

Melissa and I are excited to be partnering with this organization to save lives. Our prayer is that we might raise awareness and lead women into their doors. Cleveland Pregnancy Center is a faith-based organization that not only saves the lives of unborn children, but also points people to faith in Jesus Christ.

In the coming weeks, check out our updates and also the store page at Thanks for your help in giving this Christmas!

In Christ,
Bill, Melissa, Jaden, and Carter Seng

The World We Live In

Have you ever thought about the world that we live in today? It is full of injustice, deceit, violence, suffering, hatred, and death.

Many people believe that this is the world's natural condition because of the cruel nature of natural selection. In order for evolution to occur, things must die. This philosophy of cruelty has become a part of our daily thought patterns.

Regardless of our beliefs, humanity seems to also believe that their is a way to escape the sadness of nature's brutality. We do so through drugs, alcohol, promiscuity, entertainment, and thrill-seeking. No matter how hard we try our satisfaction lasts for mere moments before we realize our emptiness, once again.

The reality is that we are living in a broken world. This might sound like bad news, but it is actually the basis for the best news you could ever possibly hear. If the world we live in is broken, that means that it can be fixed. The idea that the universe is nothing more than a series of cruel accidents melts away into beautiful reality that all things were designed with a purpose. The notion that only the strong should survive is surpassed by the reality that the strong were meant to care for the weak. The belief that cruelty is the driving force of progress is discarded for the reality that love conquers all.

Jesus is the answer to your feelings of emptiness. All else fails to satisfy, but Jesus has promised to be with us forever. Put Him as your first priority and you will be able to bring healing to a broken world.
