My name is Timothy J. Hammons, and I was a pastor/teacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and an amateur reporter. I am married, but unhappily so. I have two boys, Andy and Joey, that I love to see when I can. You might say I’m a broken husband, a broken father, a broken pastor. I’m not trying to enlist sympathy, but just stating the facts. That doesn’t handicap me, but it’s good to realize things about yourself in order to work through these things.
I have pastored churches in Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, South Carolina and New Mexico. I hope one day to return to full-time ministry in the pulpit again, but the LORD would have to do some amazing things to bring that about. I’m still a pastor at heart and love sound preaching of God’s word.
Why I Blog
God gives us all gifts, some spiritual, some practical. I feel compelled to write about things from a Christian world perspective. This is why I am political. I also feel compelled by His love for us, to write about theology in order to help us all grow and understand the Triune God who has revealed Himself through the 66 books of the Bible, and ultimately, through the person and work of His Son Jesus Christ. I feel that this is part of my calling as a pastor. I know that some would disagree and say that I should never get political, or religious. But I take that charge to be directly from Satan. After all, the word of God tells us to take every thought captive. That is what I’m doing here. As Christians, we need to stand for the truth in all areas of life, not just the areas of our faith. Doing this is the end result of the Great Commission. As we make disciples, then those disciples go into their worlds and live as fellow believers, being used by God to take every thought captive in their respective work places and families.
I hope you enjoy what I write, or you learn from it. You can disagree all you like. I may or may not engage you in debate. More than likely, I won’t. You are free to be… well, wrong! I know that might wrinkle some people’s noses. But if I thought I was wrong, I wouldn’t argue for my positions, and the same is true for you.
