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.

If you could source the "wild guess" about Calvinists, this would be a superb answer!

Welcome to C.SE, and when you get the chance, I invite you to check out our tour. While I appreciate that you are seeming to indicate that the difference is faith, this answer is a bit unclear about its relation to the question. Additionally, and not to be mean but we are less interested in what 'you' think than what groups of people think.. Additionally, identifying your tradition would help. I do look forward to more answers, however, and genuinely invite you to check out what we do here.

comment Can Angels die?
Welcome to C.SE. This is a good answer, but not a great one - in that it relies a great deal on personal revelation over Scripture. While I don't deny personal revelation, it's not typical of the more academic answers we favor on this site. I'd invite you to check out our faq and how we are different than other sites.

Welcome to C.SE. This is an interesting answer, although, I'll admit, it is unclear to me if you are being sarcastic or not. I'd invite you to see how we are different.

Peter - You are proof positive that we need 5 (or 6 or 7!) slots. I'm voting the incumbent slate, but I consider you a mod already! I'm hoping that we get a second set of elections soon.

@pterandon To be clear, I don't endorse or not endorse anyone. I appreciate that you have clarified the attribution :) In fairness, I have no problem disclosing my intended vote: Mason, Elendia, Wax, and Caleb. You may find a pattern in there :) I believe with time you could become a good mod - but please understand I'm voting for the incumbents first. No disrespect to you.
