`Wrestles with God’ is the meaning of the name Israel, which God gave to Jacob after a night of fighting with him. Jacob wouldn’t let go until God blessed him.
This site is a place for you to talk about your own life with God, even if it feels like a fight. We write articles and thoughts, and we discuss what’s on our minds.
Some of us are Christians, and some of us aren’t, and some of us don’t know.
I launched this site because I am a Christian and I wanted a place where I and other people could express some of the darker and more dangerous thoughts we have, bringing them into the open, even `confessing’ them sometimes, so that we can encourage each other and learn from each other how to have a better, happier and more authentic relationship with God. I can’t speak for anyone else who contributes to the site, though.
If you’re worried this is some kind of cult or something, perhaps you’ll be reassured to hear I go to a fairly normal Church of England church here in the UK, and I pretty much agree with most of the Evangelical Alliance’s basis of faith (although I might not put things exactly the same way).
