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 Do any denominations believe in reincarnation?
Scriptural ly, there is no case to be made, as that one shows. I realize you are asking if any do- I can pretty unequivocally state that if one onscure sect did, the other 99.99% would be quick to say they heretics.

comment Did God create Adam and Eve with free will and knowledge of right and wrong (good and evil)?
Welcome to C.SE. This is an on target answer, although the texting lingo (b4, really?) seems out of place. Also, it addresses knowledge, but not really free will. I thus haven't voted one way or the other. When you get the chance, I'd encourage you to check out our tour and how we are different than other sites
