What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?
~ Mark 8:36
Jim Elliot (October 8, 1927 – January 8, 1956) was an evangelical Christian missionary. He was one of five missionaries who was killed in Ecuador while trying to minister to the Waodani people. His wife Elisabeth later spent two years as a missionary among the tribe that killed her husband.
365 Things I Believe is a revisioning of a year long web project. I initially launched the blog 365 Things I Believe because I think there are important things I have to say. There are eternal truths that are non-debatable, although I realize they’re not universally accepted.
So for a year I did a daily post of one thing I believe to be an indisputable truth. I’m relaunching here at The Write Side of My Brain and will continue through the next year to re-post (mostly) from the original project.
