Why Status Quo Questions?

Status Quo Questions was originally created as an avenue to talk about church health and the truth of what Christianity really is. The idea was to challenge the status quo that accepted issues as “just the way things are” instead of changing them.

Long story short, that isn’t how Status Quo Questions was used for the first few years. Instead, God directed my path to learn more about Him and His character, and the blog posts tended to focus on the study of Scripture or stories from my own journey of learning. That discipline has a way of softening your heart and changing your perspective.

Rather than being a distraction from the original purpose, the detour turned out to be an important step in laying the foundation. The issues facing the Church and believers today can’t accurately be addressed without the right perspective of who God is.

The heart behind Status Quo Questions is to someday strengthen churches and believers around the world. In the meantime, we’ll start with small but intentional discussions here.  Whether you are curious to learn more or have the same passion, please feel free to join in the conversation.
