Chris Benjamin – my corner of the internet


May 14th, 2013

“Written Without Ink” signifies more than the fact that this article has not been printed on a risograph, ditto machine, or offset press. The title is inspired by 2 Corinthians 3:3 . . . “You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.”

How intimidating it is to consider that we are a letter from Christ.  My hope is that when you read this blog, you will read the story written by God in his excellent prose even though he is writing it on a rough scrap of newsprint like me. My other hope is that in reading this journal you will consider the message that Christ is writing on the tablet of your heart.

Which leads to the reason you are here – reading this blog I mean. Maybe you are a friend, a family member, or just a wayfaring cyber-stranger, a believer in Christ or one who doubts. All are welcomed to read. I will write it, you can read it, and perhaps you will write back, but we will all reflect on the reason we are here – and this time I mean it in the philosophical and theological sense!
