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 Did only Jesus human body remain in the grave for the three days?
This is going to be difficult. Patripassianism alone is hard enough, let alone where the spirit was...

comment Does Jeremiah 8:8 imply that the scriptures were corrupted?
A scribe is a teacher of the law. That is the idiom that has been used for 2500 years. In context, Jeremiah is preaching against those teachers of the law who believe the temple will save them. Just read the thing in context.

As unsatisfying as this answer may be to a non-Calvinist, this is exactly the right one from that perspective.
