He shared with The Washington Examiner by e-mail thoughts on the faith that guides his work, and the expanding mediums to spread Christ’s message.
Do you consider yourself to be of a specific faith?
Yes, I am a Christian — a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ. I suppose the thing I find most striking is the uniqueness of Christianity. Every world religion is about one of three things: thinking, feeling or doing. Christianity by contrast is about a state of being. The essence of the Christian life is about being in Christ, being in relationship with the Father, being indwelt by the Holy Spirit. Being “in Christ” is a place of rest, rather than a place of striving for what we can never attain on our own.
