Just Turned 1 Year Today

Just Turned 1 Year Today

One year ago today, I put up this website with the goal of sharing and spreading the love of God to the world, and also to encourage fellow believers in the Lord Jesus to continue running the race of faith to the end, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain (1 Corinthians 9:24; 15:58). It was a great 1st year indeed, praise God!

“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.” – 1 Corinthians 9:24 (NLT)

Having a platform to share everything I learned (and still learning) from the Bible through personal Bible study and meditation, and listening to respected Bible scholars and theologians, was truly one of the desires of my heart since God started using me in the teaching and preaching ministry.

The Challenges

A few months before this website came into existence; I didn’t know anything about website building, themes, SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and the proper use of keywords. To be completely honest, I had zero knowledge. So I prayed and asked God to guide me through the proper channels and sure enough, He did.

But before I will tell you all about this platform that has taught me everything I needed to know about building and maintaining a website, I would like to encourage everyone who also has the desire to put up a Christian website to pray about it and ask God for guidance.

I know that God will honor your heart’s desire. The world needs more Christian bloggers to spread the Word of God with the use of technology. If the devil is working double time to deceive people using technology such as the internet, then by all means, Christians should also be using technology to work double or even triple time, to usher in more souls into the kingdom of God.

“Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.” – Psalm 37:4

We are living in the last days and no matter what our present situation is, we must never forget God’s mandate for us – to go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19-20). We will not all be able to stand before people to preach, or join mission teams. But we can always share the Gospel using any means such as the internet.

My Number One Recommendation

As I said, I had no idea how to build a website, let alone maintain it. So I asked Mr. Google to show me how. As expected, many articles came up as I typed in: “How to build a website.” I clicked on several articles and also checked out a few YouTube videos. Sure, they were all very informative and useful. There’s just one problem, they won’t tell you everything you need to know without inputting your credit card number.

A week later, I still could not decide what program to avail until I read a review about a platform that allows you to build 2 websites for free. Not only that, they will also host your websites (for free) and will give you 10 free certification lessons that will teach you how to build a profitable business online.Wealthy Affiliate: The Home of Affiliate Marketing I am talking about Wealthy Affiliate, where you will not only learn to build your own website, it will also teach you everything you need to know to start an online business and scale it.

By the way, you may wanna check out my review on Wealthy Affiliate when I was just two months into the program.

Although I did not intend to make money through this website, some of my articles contain affiliate links of my recommended products that you can check out for further research and study on the topics I talked about in the said articles. When you purchase any of the recommended Christian products, you are not only buying them with no extra cost to you; you are also helping maintain this website.

Website Update

As of today, biblical-christianity.com has a total of 58 blog posts, with four of them written by guest author Bro. Jess Cortez. The number of daily visitors has increased since May this year and is now ranging between 80 to 120. I know, this figure is low compared to other Christian sites. But I consider this a huge blessing and a confirmation from God that this website is on the right track.

So on behalf of the authors and contributors of this website, I want to thank everyone who is taking time to read and leave comments. It’s a blessing to read your comments, and if you are gaining additional biblical knowledge from the articles in this website, we too are learning and growing in knowledge on the Word of God as we write these articles.

We are very grateful for your continued love and support and please know that we are always open to sharing and discussing with you about any topic that has something to do with God and the Bible.

Admittedly, there are Christians who hold a view that’s different from us on certain biblical topics and doctrines of the Christian faith. One particular disagreement is in regard to Sabbath keeping and the Lord’s Day. This is also the post that has received the most comments.

While many believe that the Law of Sabbath keeping isn’t binding to Christians today, there are Christian denominations who believe otherwise.

Here’s the article: What is the difference between the Sabbath and the Lord’s Day

Bottom line is, we can agree to disagree. What matters is that we will all continue to work together, united in the Body of Christ, to spread the love of God that has caused Him to sacrifice His only begotten Son for the salvation of everyone who believes (John 3:16).

Looking Forward to the Future

There are at least 15 articles or topics that are due to be written and published, and God-willing, I will publish at least 1 article every week and try to maintain this publishing frequency.

I would also like to take this opportunity to ask you, our dear readers for a favor.

  1. I know this was published in 2018, but I just wanted to give you some feedback on your website.

    I have been commenting and browsing on many Christian blogs online in hopes of sharing the love of God, and encouraging others in the fight for the light. To all of the writers of this blog, I admire your passion for spreading the Gospel message to many nations across the world.

    Alice, I am really inspired by your works, and also your testimonies of living in the Middle East, a war zone. Yet, you are determined to continue sharing the good news. It is through you that I not only gain insight and inspiration, but I have been challenged to look at Biblical doctrine, the spiritual world, and Christian writing through a variety of angles.

    I would be glad to share some of the sermons I have presented throughout my time serving as Vice President of Agape Christian club at the high school I currently attend. Also, would you mind considering the publication of some of my written and artistic works within the blog, and possibly write a commentary for them to include in a future Bible study post?

    This can be how you personally interpret the selection through your spiritual belief. THIS can be grounded for a group discussion on this site.

    As always, I greatly appreciate the work you are doing. I believe that God sees what is in your heart, and is working miracles and blessings for you. In a world where deception is evident, and Satan is influencing this generation, it is Christian writers like you who bring the light in these perilous times. Keep it up!

    I pray that you will grow in your knowledge and relationship with Jesus Christ, be a source of encouragement for others, and remain strong in the fight against Satan! 🙂

    1. Hi Maia,

      Thank you for your interest in joining our team. We are always excited to welcome fellow believers in Jesus who are willing to use their God-given talent in writing to share their story or testimony of God’s work in their lives. Our ultimate goal here at Biblical Christianity site is to share the good news of salvation to those who are still in darkness and to encourage other Christians in their walk with the Lord.

      Should you want to share your work, you can send them to us through this email address: alice@biblical-christianity.com.

      Here are some points to consider when writing an article:

      1. Total number of words should not be less than 1,000 per post.
      2. The article could be one of the following:
      a) Bible Verse, Reflection and Challenge
      b) Testimonial
      c) Christianity Doctrine
      d) Commentary of a verse or passage and practical applications. It can come in the form of a sermon or preaching message.
      e) Debatable and controversial topics are accepted as long as it does not use derogatory words to express disagreement with the opposing view.

      One last thing, the admins of this site reserve the right for the final edit before publishing any article submitted by the authors and contributors. If you have any preferred image/s that you would like to to use, you may include it with your article upon submission.

      We are looking forward to working with you, Maia. Let’s go full force in sharing the Gospel.

      Much blessings!

      1. OK. One question. Can my posts be a Google Slides presentation? Because most of the sermons I have given this year are slideshow presentation. Will those count? Or, would they be edited before being published online?

        1. Hi Maia,

          We would really prefer blog content mainly in paragraph or block forms. So, yeah, they would have to be edited before publishing.

  2. Thank you for your 1 year anniversary bountiful words of encouragement. May you continue to get all the support you need for the progress of your website’s goal: soul winning.

    1. Thank you too Michael for visiting and leaving a comment. Knowing that people are being blessed through this website is a great blessing for us too. I covet your prayers that we may continue to provide inspiring and encouraging articles to fellow believers in Christ all around the globe and to get the message of the gospel into all nations.

      Shalom and may God bless you more than you ever asked or imagined.

  3. Hi Alice. Congratulations on your first anniversary! I did not (..and I still don’t) know anything about writing an article but with your encouragement, patience and with the inspiration from the Word of God, I was able to contribute a little in your website.
    With your pure intentions, perseverance and strong will, I will not be surprised if you will make it bigger soon!
    I pray for more blessings to you and to this website!

    1. Hi Bro. Jess,

      Thank you for your continuous support and encouragement. And thank you too for your contributions; you may think they’re “little” but they mean a lot.

      I am also not an expert in this area, and I acknowledge that I still have a lot to learn. But with the blessings of the Lord and guidance from the Holy Spirit, I know we can do this.

      I look forward to continually working with you in writing articles that will leave an impact to the readers, all for the greater honor and glory of God.
