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.

@DavidStratton Hope you're okay wit the addition to your answer. #7 is really too faulty to answer. You did such an amazing job of pulling together the relevant questions on the site, however, that I just wanted to use yours.

comment Are Christians monotheists and what is the nature of Jesus? (i.e. Give me the basics of Christianity please)
Read the links. Your answer doesn't fit in a comment :) Also "real god" isn't really an applicable term.

Also, you might get a kick out of knowing that just about everyting I wrote was originally worked out in your country of Turkey. Izmir is the old Nicea, from which the term "Nicene Christianity" is derived.

Please note, I'm not the downvoter, but as a sign to others, normally we don't do this. I'm just feeling kind of generous today.

I think it is kind and gracious to give a starting point to everybody - even if it's not exactly what we do here.

Hi @hellzone - A lot of this is already covered on the site, but I'd really like to answer you, so I'm going to put this into an answer.

Welcome to C.SE. When you get the chance, please check out our tour and specifically How we are different than other sites. You may notice I chopped out parts of your answer that weren't really relevant to the question at hand. What you started with seemed to be pretty good - but then you kind of fell off the tracks into discussion. All in all, not bad - but please remember, we try to be very academic here. Thanks!

comment What's the difference between the Judgment Seat of Christ and the Great White Throne Judgment?
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 okay answer, but it would be helpful to still distinguish more about the separateness of the Judgement seat of Christ.

I'm upvoting, because some good theology really can be done on this question. Answers can be respectful and still highlight the differences, without being incidiary
