"People do not drift toward holiness. Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; we drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; we drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated."

- D.A. Carson
Bird's Bio

First of all, "Bird" is an old childhood nickname. Can't recall how I got it.

My real name is Eric Guel and I live in Waco, Texas. I'm a 37-year-old follower of Jesus, husband, and father of five gorgeous children.

My interests are literature, photojournalism, journalism, chess, theology, hobby farming, and history.
