Why Rock Excavation Service?

The question came up recently as to why I used a name for this site that sounds like a company. Why “Rock Excavation Service?” I chose this name because I saw that Jesus, our living Savior, was being ignored and even buried by many good deeds.

I heard people saying that they were “spiritual.” People used the word “God” in a pantheistic (many gods) way. Churches were placing ill-prepared people in leadership positions. I heard sermons preached that were either simply incorrect or purposely heretical. I heard songs on Christian radio stations that were so far off base that I couldn’t come to grips with their justification for broadcasting lies.

One evening, as these thoughts ran through my head I had that thought, “We need to find Christ in Christianity.” That became the tagline for this site and its mission statement. I prayed a lot about this site; I still do.

So, when I decided to start a blog to focus on Jesus, I considered the task of finding Jesus in Christianity. There are many places in the Bible Jesus is referred to as the Rock, so the title of this blog became Rock Excavation Service. It was my mission to excavate the Christian landscape and unearth Jesus.

Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.Isaiah 26:4

And all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank from the spiritual Rock that followed them, and the Rock was Christ.1 Corinthians 10:4

If I count the first couple of attempts, I’ve written well over 800 posts during the last four years. I have no intention of retiring. Why “Rock Excavation Service?” Now you know.
