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 Is there any protestant method how to deal spiritual dryness?
The traditional recipie for dealing with Protestant dryness is to brine the chicken the night before the potluck, or when that fails, go to KFC. More modern evangelicals will substitute Chik-Fil-A. ... Oh, wait Spiritual dryness. The answer to that is to visit a charismatic church. :)

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 is, this is an on-target answer, but would be better if you could find additional support for your thesis. (Not voting either way until I see that).

comment What terms have been used by missionaries to Islamic countries to describe Islam?
You are conflating those with a political motivation (e.g. the Values Voters) with missionaries who have a religious motivation. Political people are going to say its political, Religious people are going to say its religious. That's just what people do.

comment How many gospels are there in the Roman Catholic Bible?
You might want to point out that the 7 different books are all in the Old Testament, and are referred to as DeuteroCanonical or Apocraphyal books. They include Macabees, Tobit, Judith, Esdras, and some additions to Daniel and Esther.
