I am Dave Mathews, born and raised and residing in North York, Ontario Canada. I am 64 years old, and have a B/Sc degree in computers. I was brought up in the Roman Catholic Faith, but I am first and fore-most a "Born Again Christian" living out my existance as a devoted spirit/child of Almighty God my Father. Whenever and where ever I see or am made aware of wrongful church docterine or church dogma within the Catholic Church, I speakout against it and do what I can to make it right or at least make others aware of the wrongfulness.
I have no formal religious education, therefore I am not a pastor, associate pastor, priest, deacon, or minister in the formal sense of the word. Maybe this is a good thing though, because God was able to discover a willing and open vessel to out-pour some of his knowledge and wisdom and good sense, and through the powers of God's Holy Spirit and His inspiration God is permitted to selectively utilize me as his willing child and servant to evangelize through writing that which God desires and needs to say to His people.
I guess in a spiritual way, one might see me as a modern day John The Baptist. Wrongly proclaimed John The Baptist was not a "Prophet" of God. John was a proclaimer of the Truth, that the Messiah Our Lord Jesus, walked among man. John preached repentance. Through the Holy Spirit inspired writings I do what I can to try and reach the "Lost Sheep of God" as Jesus commisioned me to do with the hopes of turning even just one lost soul back to God.
I am also a music lover. I have sung as a tenor chorister, for 48 years. I have the priviledge of singing with not one but two catholic choirs in two different churches, singing both the traditional classical catholic music in a number of different languages, but also singing the more modern spiritual church music of today. This is like a music ministry for me as I also use it to teach the youth in the proper ways of expressing love for God through the music we sing. It is easy to open one's mouth and make noise come out. It is not so easy to actually feel the music through the notes and the lyrics and express the deep feelings in the music.
Currently I am doing God's work through my writings which can be found at a site known as Hub Pages.Com search under my name "Dave Mathews" . There you can find all of my 176 Blog writings which covers topics of spirituality, cooking, health and more. at present I have reached nearly 45,000 readers. Sister Saundra is one of the many. All are welcome.
Respectfully with God's Love,
