Welcome to the website of Faithfully Restored.  The intention for this blog is to be a resource for those who wish to know more about the God of the Holy Christian Bible.  I am not a Pastor, but rather, just another sinful man in desperate need of salvation.  I have found that in Christ and it has changed my life in ways that I could never have imagined.  He can do the same for you as well.

There is an increasing number of people, mostly in younger generations, who have never heard the story of Christ known as “the Gospel,” and even more who have had the Gospel, and other areas of the Bible, misrepresented to them.

There is an overwhelming amount of information available about God, Christ and salvation; much of it is accurate, but even more of it is fallacious and unreliable.  For those with a desire to learn about such things, it is quite easy to find oneself feeling confused, frustrated and disenchanted with the entire subject and abandoning it altogether.

One of the goals of this blog is to offer a simple explanation of God and Christ, why they are important, from what, exactly, we are in need of being saved and how such salvation may be achieved.

Here, the King James Bible (KJV) is used exclusively and it is recommend that you do the same; this decision will be explained in a later post.  If you do not have a KJV, there are many sources for them.  There are free versions online such as the King James Bible Online, and you can find a paperback copy at most dollar stores for a dollar or so.  Updates will be made to the “Bibles” section in the sidebar on the right of this blog as they are discovered.

A secondary purpose for this blog is to use it to compliment the Faithfully Restored antique restoration business. I restore antique furniture and antique traditional woodworking hand tools and enjoy such work a great deal. During the process of removing and repairing signs of neglect and abuse, my mind is constantly making connections with how God works in our lives.

As a free gift to customers, videos are made to show as much of the restoration process as possible and the attempt is made to insert appropriate scripture verses that seem to match what is happening in the video. This way, they have both the opportunity to see most of the restoration process and of having the Gospel shared with them. The videos are quite amateur in production, but people seem to enjoy watching them and I enjoy making them.

Click on the “Blog” tab at the top of this page to view photographs of the restoration projects and to read writings about the things of God.  Also, consider exploring the links that are present on the side of all of the pages here.  There are resources for free Bibles, Bibles for purchase, dictionaries, instruction in penmanship &c.

Thank you again for visiting.  Feel free to sign up via email subscription or RSS feed to stay abreast of things here.  If you have questions about salvation or other Biblical issues or topics, please  feel free to contact me via the form on the “Contact Me” tab at the top of this page.  For now, I will leave you with what is, quite possibly, the most famous two verses in the entire Bible:

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. {17} For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” ~ (John 3:16-17)

Sincerely and respectfully,
Mr. Stafford
