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.

Welcome to C.SE. When you get the chance, please fund out how we are different than other sites. As it stands, this answer isn't very well supported. It would be helpful, for example, to say why you believe what you wrote, and more importantly, who else agrees with you.

comment How do those who hold doctrines that God is omnipotent and omniscient answer what 1 Corinthians 1:25 implies?
I like the thought process, but I don't think its actually relevant. Paul's point is about the greatness of God over man - and he is using a metaphor to say that. Even if there were variation within God, his lowest would be higher than your best. Isa 55:8-9 is saying the exact same thing.

comment Is Christian mysticism an oxymoron or is it a legitimate path for a Christian?
I'd also add the famous work The Cloud of Unkonwning which has influenced millions of Christians.

+1 I think you've actually got the right understanding of Calvinism in your answer, regardless of whether or not you are hyper-Calvinist :)
