Welcome to my blog, I'm Luke and I started this blog to pen down some of my thoughts regarding what I believe in as a christian.
In no way am I attempting to prove that I am superior in terms of knowledge.
For whatever you may disagree upon, or think is unright, please raise it up at my tag-board. I will answer
what I can to my utmost best.
To contact me, you can send me sms through this number 93767336, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Feel free to use any material I have posted on my blog.
* Note that not all posts here are mine.*
I hope through this blog may I be able to strengthen believers and bring non-believers to christ. Do pray for me. God bless you all.
