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 Life of Jesus from the age of 12 to 30?
Welcome to C.SE. When you get the chance, please check out our tour and specifically How we are different than other sites. Sadly, this isn't a great answer but it isn't a great question either. The question is asking for sources about the "missing period" in Jesus' life. While the inferences aren't bad, they aren't supportable either.

comment Does the Catholic church today require for you to pay taxes?
The Vatican only has one permanent resident, and he receives no salary. (See does the pope get paid for being the pope. The answer is "nope.")

comment Is Jehovah Jesus Christ?
@Bubbles that is really interesting- looked that up and sure enough, Mormons do state that, JWs posit the precise opposite- same verse proves Jesus isn't Jehovah BC of ps. 83.18. Personally I go with the old hermeneutic of "it can't mean what it couldn't have meant to the author." That said, the assuredness with which people ascribe the person is quite fasicinating.

If you don't have questions about the Trinity, you don't understand it :)
