Michael went to be with the Lord on February 14, 2015. He considered this his favorite hangout. I know he would have wanted to leave you an explanation for his lack of activity on this site.

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 What are the differences between Mormonism and Islam, and how do Mormons react to comparisons with it?
@SomeFreeMason I would argue that since the question can easily be narrowed to the claims made in the video, it's not a polling question. To be sure, some answers may be more persuasive in debunking the same claims than others, but the parameters are definable and answerable. It's not an open-ended list, but rather a defined set that can be answered and evaluated. Matt's already got a good start (but then again, he's always good at these questions :)

comment Who pays for Protestant seminary education for aspiring ministers?
Yup! In my case, I had sold a house, and wanted to "tithe" a portion of it. I used the proceeds to fund my seminary education.
