Restitutio: Reflections of a Restorationist
A place for theology, church history, apologetics, inspiration, and other odds and ends

Hello. My name is Sean Finnegan and I'm on a quest. I'm trying to figure out authentic Christianity so that I can love God, follow Christ, and pursue truth wherever it leads. I've put this site together both to share my own lectures, sermons, and articles as well as to recommend other quality resources that have aided me in my own journey.

I'm convinced that Christianity has gotten off track from what it was in first few generations of the movement. I'm a restorationist, which means, I want to peel back layers of tradition that separate us from primitive Christianity.

Because I don't know everything, and sometimes err, please check what I say against the scriptures to see if it lines up (Acts 17.11). Feel free to leave feedback to help me on my quest to discover and live out the faith once for all delivered to the saints.
