Like you, I often get asked why I believe what I believe. The question comes from friends, family, strangers, or yes, even myself! Questions like, Why do you believe in God? Why do you believe in the church? Why do you believe in government? Why do you believe … and on and on and on. I get challenged from time to time to defend my beliefs, prove my beliefs or more importantly, stand on my beliefs!. I learned early on a great lesson about truth, belief in truth and how to share truth from a passage recorded long ago in the Bible.

“And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.” Hear it? it’s incumbent upon the person receiving the information to believe, not on the person sharing it. Check it out. Hebrews 11:6. Simply put, I believe in God because I believe He is God. My faith, or belief in Him is what drew me to Him. No one had to prove it, or even could. I had to believe and receive the truth for myself. It is this simple precept that removes our burden or obligation to prove our beliefs to others. Truth stands alone whether it is believed or not! Truth remains truth whether it is shared correctly or incorrectly. Truth never changes, it is us that change when we discover its riches!

With that said, it is still important to remember, even though people must come to believe on their own, that we share our beliefs of truth without bias, coercion or even personal expectation. I came to believe in God because people were kind and dedicated enough to give me the needed knowledge to make a well-informed, independent and definitive decision for or against Him.  So now when asked about my beliefs about anything, I give people the available facts about what I believe in and why I believe it to be true; what they do with these facts is completely up to them. Facts are important; they don’t create a truth, they only point towards it!

This process of arriving at truth has proven very helpful for me once again. This time not as critical as coming to know the truth about Christ, but in knowing the physical benefits of a supplement called Protandim. I don’t know the science behind Protandim but I can get you in front of scientific facts about it that were shared with me if you’re interested. I don’t know all the ways Protandim has physically helped or not helped others but I do know all the ways it has helped my wife, my son and myself and would love to share this truth with you if you would like. I can give you all the facts needed about Protandim to make a well informative decision to receive or reject all this supplement has to offer.

If you’re at all interested and would like to know more, and believe me you want to know more, contact me.

Sincerely,

Jim Bringman
