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 Why is Jesus looking on an oddly standing stone?
I've raised this on meta. If it does get closed, I'd vote to reopen immediately. I think it is asking about the theological interpretation of a work. It is on topic.

comment Why should the book of Enoch be considered canonical?
@JohnUnsworth I don't want to belabor this, but I think you need to learn How we are different than other sites. This isn't a discussion board. This isn't a place to work out your theology. This is a question and answer site precisely for those councils and texts and things you don't trust. I'm not trying to change your opinion, I was trying to answer your question - although admittedly, I'm realizing I read it wrong. I was thinking you were asking "Why isn't it canonical?" vs. should. We don't do "truth" here at all

Orthodoxy by which I mean congurent with the Seven Ecumenical Councils, which you will note, exclude the Coptic and Nestorian churches.

Welcome to C.SE. When you get the chance, please check out our tour and specifically How we are different than other sites. This answer doesn't really address the distinction being requested.
