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 Were OT prophets poor or wealthy?
Isaiah was in the king's court with servants of his own. Amos was a farmer. Jonah was famous. Jeremiah was thrown in prison. Everybody else was somewhere in between.

Why the downvote? I would think even Skeptics would have been okay with the formulation of the question.

@Flimzy There is a well known list of the "fruits of the spirit." Not to be mean, but you seem to think that nothing in Christianity is settled. That isn't true. There's more that is settled than I think you think.
