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 is the origin of praying hands folded?
Welcome to C.SE. This is an insightful answer, although it would benefit from additional sourcing - meaning that if you could find other theologians who've shown similiar stuff, it would make it amazing. As it is, I suspect Gregory of Nyssa would be proud :)When you get the chance, I'd recommend you check out our tour and see how we are different

Wow! I really like this answer. I hadn't caught that lack of chronology, and this is really well sourced. But then again, @Mike, you always have great stuff, so I shouldn't be surprised :)

comment Is the New Covenant a unilateral or a bilateral covenant?
I don't see any mention of an obligation on the part of us. That would make it unilateral, not bilateral. Indeed your Luke passage is 100% unilateral. I will pour out my cup on you!
