My Testimony and Goal

Welcome to Rod of Iron!

My name is R. Price Jones, and I’m the author of this blog.

My Testimony:

I was once foolish, disobedient, led astray, a slave to various passions and pleasures.  I passed my days in malice and envy – hated by others and hating them.  But when the goodness and loving-kindness of God our Savior appeared, He saved me – not because of righteousness I had done – but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on me richly through Jesus Christ or Savior, so that being Justified by His Grace I might become an heir according to the hope of eternal life.  (Titus 3: 3-7, Paraphrased)

I Testify that in Christ God has called me to be a member of Christ’s body, not by my will, but by His.  In His providence he has brought me to an understanding and conviction of the faith as articulated in the 1689 confession.

My Goal for this Blog:

I wish to do whatever I can to serve Christ by serving His people. It seems the best way I can do that now is by increasing my knowledge and skill in the theological sciences.  I have also been encouraged by my pastors and members of my church to pursue theological studies since teaching a class on Wednesday nights on Systematic Theology. I hope to use this blog to share my thoughts and lessons to the encouragement of the church and to further my abilities to communicate theology.
