"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else." - C.S. Lewis

Hello, all! My name is Montana, as you may have assumed from my handle.

I love words, the meaning of words, the history of words, the meaning of words at different points of history... Words are majorly important, as this post and everything else in the world wouldn't exist without them.

My first name comes from the Spanish word montaña, meaning mountain.

My middle name, Jace, is a form of the Jason (Ιασων in Greek) and it means healer.

My last name, Selman, has its roots in Anglo-Saxon. It is a variant of the Biblical king, Solomon, and was also a nickname for a wise and fortunate man.

So, by combining all of my names, I am a Wise and Fortunate Mountain Healer Man...

Maybe not exactly that, but I'm very happy that I have three names of significance!


Anyways, I am Christian. And no, I don't go around on here screaming on peoples work about how awful they are and they need Jesus because how awful they are. 

To be honest, if you took a panorama of my life from when I learned of Jesus until now, you would know I am a Christian, but you'd probably say I am a bad one. I try to center Christ and his truth in every work I create, but I'm not better than anyone else. In fact, I know I a lot more people who are better than me who aren't Christians.

With all of that said, I'll say this to sum up who I am:

I am a young man who loves Christ, Words, and People. I try to live my life by how the Christian God sees the world (which is a view of compassion, not hate). I fail often in trying to do so, but my aim is to bring others to salvation so that they can live happy and secure lives similar to, but exactly like the one I live! :)
