My name is Steven Long. I belong to the Long for Truth blog as well as a member of the Messed Up Church group, two sites that boldly confront the false teachings of the modern Evangelical Church. I formerly identified as a Reformed Calvinist but over the last two years of continual study my theology has radically shifted to that of a Confessional Lutheran. I attend an SBC church (a story for much later) but I hold firmly to the Book of Concord and the Augsburg Confession.
I’m a Correctional Officer at a close custody facility in North Eastern North Carolina. My desire is to provide the layperson with resources to help them with the proper interpretation and application of Scripture.
I pray that this blog will be useful to you and enrich your own study of God’s word. I sincerely pray that you will visit often to read new posts and find resources for your study of the Word.
For the glory of the Gospel,
