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 When did the idea of a scriptural “canon” originate?
FYI, If you count Maccabees - from 150BC, there is no "silent period," because there are gaps of more than 200 years in other parts of scripture...

comment Why is the word 'Lord' in all caps in the OT but not in the NT?
@H3br3wHamm3r81 Because the word used is Kurious rather than YHWH. Plus, as stated, IT IS A CONVENTION ADDED, not in the original manuscripts. Really, that was a downvote?

comment What are the biblical arguments that the Bible canon is NOT closed?
You'd really need to go to a Barthian argument moreso than a biblical one for this.

comment What does Liberate 2014/Tullian mean by 'One Way Love'?
Welcome to C.SE. When you get the chance, please check out our tour and specifically How we are different than other sites. This is the start of a good answer, but more focus on the facts of what Tullian has written / quotes / etc. would make this a much better answer.
