It's All About Him
Hello, and welcome to Little Pilgrims Theology. I am Brandon, and my wife Jeannette and I have created Little Pilgrims Theology all to the praise, honor, and glory of God. We have four children at present, and in being convicted to homeschool them, we are always seeking engaging ways to train our children up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Yet all too frequently, the resources we come across are too shallow, too scholarly, or contain teachings and images that do not align with our convictions. The realization that a gap existed between early-learning and seminary-level theological education was the driving motivator for the creation and design of Little Pilgrims Theology. Our desire is to bridge that gap so that the gospel has greater reach and young learners can have the opportunity to grow in greater depth and knowledge of biblical truth.
"Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord."
Little Pilgrims Theology seeks to offer educators an avenue to teach the next level of theology to growing minds for the glory of God. Our goal is to create, maintain, and continuously improve an edifying resource that challenges and builds up learners in the truth of scripture in a way that is fun, memorable, and pleasing to God.
Little Pilgrims Theology is all about furthering the kingdom of God by explaining the gospel of Jesus Christ according to scripture alone. Every jot and tiddle of the content here has been thoroughly examined and considered, to the best of our ability, to serve as a gospel conduit.
Sooner than later there comes a time when learners are ready to move on from spiritual milk to more solid food that is found in the Bible. Little Pilgrims Theology challenges learners to strive for excellence in theological education; working with all their hearts as if for God, and not for men.
"Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win."
2 Cor. 9:25
Little Pilgrims Theology is packed full of sound biblical doctrine, presenting eternal treasures of the faith. From the core matters of the gospel, to other aspects of the faith, Little Pilgrims Theology is loaded with the rightly-handled word of God. This equips young learners with sound theology and helps prepare their hearts and minds for the day when they will be forced to reckon with the schemes of the evil one as he works to deceive, even the elect for a time. The instruction that Little Pilgrims Theology offers serves to guard against these schemes of the devil so that they can confidently stand firm in the faith, and more readily discern what is and what is not the truth.
"In pointing out these things to the brethren, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, constantly nourished on the words of the faith and of the sound doctrine which you have been following."
1 Tim. 4:6
Little Pilgrims Theology is not meant to be a replacement for the Bible, nor for a solid local church, but it is meant to be a supplement to all of these. Our goal is simply to put a trustworthy resource, that rightly handles the word of truth, in the hands of parents, educators, and learners. We want Little Pilgrims Theology to be flexible enough so that the content can be tailored for an individualized educational focus. The content of Little Pilgrims Theology is organized categorically, and there are no prerequisites. This makes the content versatile.
Our prayer is that Little Pilgrims Theology brings the gospel of Jesus Christ and sound teaching to whomever might profit from it; young and old alike, and that God would open the ears of the lost to bring about faith and repentance as fruits of a new life in Christ Jesus. We pray also for those that have already trusted in Christ; that they would continue to find great joy and rest in Him alone, and that they would keep abiding in Christ, eagerly waiting for His glorious return.
