For my first post, I’d like to tell you a little bit about myself and why I’m writing this blog. My name is Monte Perepelkin and as a result of a miscalculation while racing professional arenacross at 30 years of age, I am a quadriplegic—completely paralyzed from the neck down. Unlike renowned physicist, Stephen Hawking, however, I have full movement in my neck. So, I write by using a custom-made stick that I grip between my teeth and poke away at the keys on a computer keyboard with. I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and I’m 51 years of age.
Ever since my first introduction to the concept of God at the age of six at Sunday school, I’ve been both fascinated and curious by the possibility. Then, shortly after my 40th birthday, my curiosity was finally satisfied. By using science, logic, and a little common sense, I could see that humankind was definitely created. The concept of God was no longer a possibility, it is a reality! And that’s when a thorough examination of the Bible finally answered all my questions with logical answers. Those answers are what inspired me to write YHWH AND THE SACRED SECRET. My hope is to teach people what I learned and get them as excited as I am about what it all means for humankind.
My objective in writing this blog is to reveal interesting facets of the Bible and explain some exciting features that surround it. Believe it or not, the Bible is an incredibly fascinating book! What people fail to realize is that religions do not own the rights to the Bible. In fact, religions are nothing more than what someone, or a group of someones, want you to believe. Unfortunately, these same people have cunningly misinterpreted the Bible for reasons that are disingenuous, to say the least. Fact is, when you separate religion from the Bible, it becomes a book. Although a very important book, it’s still a book. And you will be relieved to know that you don’t need to be ordained or have some special ability to make sense of or understand the Bible. When you were a kid and your mother told you, “Let the dog outside right now!” Was there any debate as to when you should let the dog outside? Of course not. She said, “Right now!” Was there any debate as to whether she meant the cat? Obviously not. If you can interpret those simple instructions, then you don’t need religion to explain what the Bible says.
The topic for my next blog will answer this question: What is the purpose of the Bible and how did it come to exist? Be sure to watch for it before the end of May.
