About

Didn’t you see the little blurb on the home page?  Hmmm.. Ok here it is again:

Hey there.  Welcome.  I’m Brad.  This blog is my collection of musings on bringing a Christ-centered worldview to a faux Christian society.  I want to navigate through the fluff and get to the heart of the real journey, the journey that puts us on our knees before a gracious and merciful Christ. In the words of Ken Ham: “It is time to put on your Biblical Glasses.”

I would love for you to introduce yourself through email or comments, and get to know and help others that are here looking for some advice. My email is brad@slavealchemy.com.

Oh and one last thing. What is with the name “Slave Alchemy?” What does it mean? My belief is that we are all slaves to something or someone, we just get to choose what or who that is.  Alchemy was an idea dating back to medieval times that you could transform something common, such as a metal, into something very valuable, such as gold. If we are slaves to God and not to man or material things, then we have been transformed into something of great value.  As true Christ followers, we have the obligation to use this truth to serve those around us.

Romans 6:15-23

15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under the law but under grace? By no means! 16 Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness? 17 But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you have come to obey from your heart the pattern of teaching that has now claimed your allegiance. 18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.

19 I am using an example from everyday life because of your human limitations. Just as you used to offer yourselves as slaves to impurity and to ever-increasing wickedness, so now offer yourselves as slaves to righteousness leading to holiness. 20 When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness. 21 What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are now ashamed of? Those things result in death! 22 But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in[a] Christ Jesus our Lord.
