About ThyKingdomComma

The story of Thy Kingdom Comma is a simple one: It’s the story of one man discovery that his “one talent coin” is writing. Wanting to invest it for eternity rather than burying it, he starts a blog. Lord willing, he’ll publish another book, too. In the meantime, new posts are guaranteed to be posted every whenever. 😉

So What is Thy Kingdom Comma?

Thy Kingdom Comma is an evangelical Christian blog encouraging Christians in their a biblical worldview, commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ, and to active participation in the furtherance of His Kingdom through Great Commission living. Or, as the tagline says, a Christian blog about Everyday Life, Eternal Life, & Everything in Between.

Who is Writing These Posts?

Unless otherwise noted, posts are written by me, Anthony Russo. Who am I? Praise God, I’m a nobody trying to tell anybody about Somebody! That said, here’s what I wrote on an index card one time:

I really am what the Bible calls “Born Again”. I’m not who I was, my life and my heart are completely different. Selfishness, guilt, and shame were replaced with a genuine love for God and people. I am not who I was; Jesus changed my life. He can change yours, too. Don’t waste another day.

Because I believe Christians should be thinking and discerning people, like the Bereans in Acts 17, it’s important you know what I believe so you can discern for yourself whether what I write is good fruit or not.

I’m a born-again Christian committed to traditional positions on the triune God, the deity of Christ, salvation by faith alone in Christ alone, and the inspiration, inerrancy, and sufficiency of Scripture.

I earned my master’s in Biblical Counseling from Luther Rice College & Seminary in 2015 and hope to complete my Masters in Divinity in Spring 2021. I’m also the author of Pleasant Places: Short Essays on the Christian Life.

Being Baptist, I agree with The 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith and affirm the Baptist Faith & Message (2000). At the same time, I also hold a fellowship-in-principle relationship with those brothers and sisters in Christ who affirm the Westminster Confession instead, or most folks who fall under the umbrella of evangelical Christianity. I strongly opposes the word-faith prosperity (false) gospel and modern “easy-believism” Christianity that has become the hallmark of many “seeker-sensitive” churches.

My wife and I have been married since 2007 and are members at Grace Baptist Church in Taylors, South Carolina. When not reading or writing, I also make a living as a IT project manager.

Why “ThyKingdomComma”?

Because all the good Christian blog names were taken. 😉
