Michael went to be with the Lord on February 14, 2015. He considered this his favorite hangout. I know he would have wanted to leave you an explanation for his lack of activity on this site.

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 What Bible translations are accepted by the Southern Baptist Convention?
Also, NWT isn't "controversial" for most Baptists - it is downright heretical. It is not fair to say "controversial amongst Trinitarians" It is fair to say "that's really only for Jehavoah's Witness"

@DoubleU Please be a little more restrained in editing my answers. The word "popish" really didn't fit here, in particular.

@Bye I appreciate the edits, but decided to decline them, because frankly, I wanted to add a little bit of character to the answer. I actively did not appreciate DoubleU's edits that did make it more controversial

Just an FYI, if this question gets closed, I plan on voting to reopen. This is a great question, as Mr. Bultitude's answer shows!
