Christy Lynne Wood is a former youth pastor’s wife, mother of two, lover of Jesus, hater of legalism, blogger, speaker, and hopeful author. After spending her teens in a legalistic Christian cult, Christy is passionate about the truth and about helping people find genuine relationship with Jesus Christ.
That’s the short version. 🙂
I grew up in Bill Gothard’s Institute in Basic Life Principles. Legalism, performance driven faith, formulas, and twisted Scripture abounded. Unexpectedly, the real Jesus found me and drew me into a relationship with Himself. As I got to know Jesus for myself, I began to realize that the God I knew and the god I was being told about, couldn’t be the same Person. And this started my journey searching for the real God.
What and Who I found continue to amazing me!
Paul, wrote in 1 Corinthians 1:23, 25, “but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.”
The real God and his real Son Jesus trip up people who are living their life by a set of rules and laws. They often seem stupid and foolish to intellectuals.
But, I have met Someone worth tripping over to find the truth. And if the intellectuals of this world think that I and my beliefs are stupid, then let me be foolish. 🙂 The God that I have found is worth it all! Will you join me in my search?
