About Keith Carroll
Hi, I’m Keith Carroll, the “Relationship Guy, founder of Relational Gospel.com” This site shares the perspective and understanding of Scripture that evolved out of my personal quest to experience more of God. Actually, I would describe my life as an enlightening journey. Do you realize … God longs for the same personal interaction with you?
I was born in California and dedicated my life to God as a pre-teen. Very early in life I became attentive to God’s presence and an avid student of Scripture. My love for God and desire to be involved in what God was saying and doing kept me traveling the country with my parents until my mid-twenties, visiting many ministries.
Settling in Dallas, I married Nancy and started a family. With two sons and a daughter (all Texans), we moved to Pennsylvania to raise our children in a rural area among Nancy’s large family. Our children have become godly adults, married to wonderful spouses. We are enjoying being grandparents to five amazing grandchildren.
After serving believers in a variety of ways, including senior pastor, I became an acquisitions editor for a growing Christian publisher. I enjoyed the interaction with authors and soon advanced to the position of associate publisher. Eventually, I became a Literary Agent and continue to assist authors who desire to publish (www.ChristianLiteraryAgent.com).
During the 1990’s I started organizing my insights into readable presentations, to help bring clarity to God’s purpose for our lives today. Insightful clarity continued to come and in 2012 Relational Gospel.com was launched so people worldwide could connect to Biblical-based resources that clarify God’s cohesive purpose for our lives. It wasn’t long before I became known as “The Relationship Guy.” My studies have morphed into three easy-to-read books.
I invite you to join me in this rewarding journey. While not required, understanding is extremely beneficial in our growing development as God’s children. Intimacy with God-in-Christ improves our ability to reach His goal for our life in this earth – to be a Godly influence in all our relationships.
Connect with me on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. Drop me an email through our contact page, I’d love to hear your thoughts. Be sure to sign up for fresh Biblical insights through my bi-monthly blog.
We believe in the Eternal One who created the natural universe as a place to birth and parent mankind. The spoken voice of God created the first two, Adam and Eve, which began the ongoing process of birthing our heavenly Father’s offspring into existence and raising them as children into His image and likeness (His reflection and resemblance).
As children of the first couple, we are all offspring of God and man. Having a natural body infused with eternal spirit, our ‘truth’ in this life includes both temporal and eternal realities. God endows His children with ‘free will,’ the ability to choose when and to what degree to accept or ignore God’s guidance. The first parents chose to ignore God’s guidance and separation entered the growth process.
Salvation is the process God offers to restore our confidence in His guidance. Jesus Christ lived as a son of God AND man, just like you and me. Jesus illustrated our Father’s desire for all of His developing children, to mature as children, into levels and degrees of His image and likeness.
Scripture is a viable source of insight that reveals God’s perfect love for us, and illustrates man’s various responses. Our fellowship with God’s Spirit improves our process of maturing into His intention.
