I am Eric Glover, the creator of this site and the leader of the Doubtless Living Bible study group at ClearView Baptist Church in Franklin, Tennessee. I am married to Tina Glover and we have two grown children and one wonderful grandson. I have taught Bible study classes to adults of all ages for more than 25 years and teaching God’s Word is one of my greatest passions in life. I am an ordained Southern Baptist minister and I attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. I have served churches in many capacities over the years, but I am called by God to teach His Word and that is what I love doing most of all.
Professionally, I serve as the Vice President of Retail Operations for LifeWay Christian Stores, one of the largest Christian retailers in the world with 160 stores across America. I have a Masters of Business Administration degree from the University of Connecticut and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree from Missouri Southern State University. I am also a Certified Public Accountant, although I have not practiced public accounting for many years.
Because the blood of Jesus can “cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9), believers often take a casual view of sin, thinking all we need to do is pray a prayer and ask forgiveness. While God’s capacity to forgive is unlimited, we must remember that all sin offends Holy God.
Knowing that we have been forgiven by God through Christ doesn’t excuse our sin. It covers it. There is a powerful difference. One views sin as okay because God has already taken care of it. This is an incorrect view of sin. The other views sin for the vile reality that it is but is increasingly grateful because God already took care of it.
A true understanding of Christ’s sacrifice promotes gratitude and love. That creates in us a readiness to recognize and confess our sin. That leads to repentance, which by God’s grace, leads to less sin. It’s how we honor God’s holiness.
