Software Developer, part-time pastor, and I raise chickens. Who can't love a chicken?

For Christianity.stackexchange.com, my religious background:

  • Grew up in a Protestant, evangelical, nondenominational "Bible Church" (-1990)
  • earned a M.Div at a Baptist Seminary (2008) and pastored a very small Baptist church (2004 - 2008)
  • Served in an Episcopal Church, and yes I did that site. (2008 - 2013)
  • Back to a Baptist church that has a true passion for breaking down the barriers of church so as to focus on the original mission of the church - namely to bring Jesus to a dying world.

comment Why create people who are not called?
Welcome to C.SE! When you get the chance, please check out our tour and specifically How we are different than other sites. This is an excellent question, but a poor fit for this site. People have spent their whole lives trying to answer the question, and written many books. You aren't going to get an "answer" in this space.

comment Authoratative apologetics textbook
This is a great question, but not what Stack Exchange does. It is unfortunately what we call a shopping list question - one which is looking for a good resource. Unfortunately, in the end, it comes down to an opinion, rather than an answerable question, so they are off-topic.

Welcome to C.SE. When you get the chance, please check out our tour and specifically How we are different than other sites. This just doesn't read like an academic answer, and please - we actually don't want comments here! Also, if you could identify your faith tradition, that would be helpful.

Welcome to C.SE. When you get the chance, please check out our tour and specifically How we are different than other sites. This answer really needs to be sourced better. You are probably right, but showing that others agree with this will make it an academic answer.

Welcome to C.SE. When you get the chance, please check out our tour and specifically How we are different than other sites. As it stands, this answer really needs to be sourced to what others have said about this. I think you're right, but we are looking for academic answers here.
