Welcome to the blog of Paul Lorence. For the last 20 years I have been heads down searching for truth and understanding after discovering, in 1999, that the Bible is loaded with the appearance of contradictions. This fact shook my faith and changed my world as I began to find out why they were set forth and how to resolve them. What I discovered was astonishing. In a very short period of time it became clear to me that the truth in the Bible was veiled in a lie. This deeply troubled me and within months of figuring this out I was diagnosed with a severe case of bipolar disorder. For the next seven years of my life I found myself in and out of just about every psychward in Minneapolis trying to come to terms with the truth and a lifethreatening illness I had never even heard of let alone knew how to manage it. By 2006, I finally had my last manic episode and got bipolar disorder under control. I am happy to say that since then I have learned to harness the creative power that comes with it to unveil the truth. What follows is what I found and the stories behind it.
