"It wasn't a potential atonement actuated by the sinner, it was an actual atonement initiated by the savior."

John MacArthur

What started as a personal study blog has turned into a ministry. “For by Faith” has five primary categories.

“Evangelism” explaining the fundamentals of saving faith in Jesus Christ;

“Doctrine” which explore the deeper truths of Christianity;

“Leadership” which addresses authority, responsibility, and accountability in and outside the church;

“Lifestyle” shares some of the riches God has blessed us with;

“Fundamentals” which attempt to details those convictions all believers should know and guard, and

“My Daily Journal” in which I share insights from my daily bible study.

Who am I? A thankful believer in Jesus Christ, with 5 adult children and 9 grandchildren, married to my High School sweetheart and living in Texas in an exodus from California. Professionally, I have 30 plus years of experience as Managing Director of Registered Investment Advisory firms, and CFO of an NYSE listed investment firm, with CPA and CFP designations, a Masters degree in Tax Law, and a passion for finance and investment planning, fly fishing, music, photography, wristwatches, golf, history, and the Bible.

Thank you for your interest.
