Michael went to be with the Lord on February 14, 2015. He considered this his favorite hangout. I know he would have wanted to leave you an explanation for his lack of activity on this site.

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.

Welcome to C.SE. When you get the chance, please check out our tour and specifically How we are different than other sites. Unfortunately, this question probably should have been closed - because we aren't really looking for philosophy of science so much as theology.

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 a good answer, but it would be helpful if you identified your tradition, and exhorted a little less at the end. It reads like a sermon, not an essay.

comment Is Baptism of a child still valid if one of the pouring during baptism misses?
(Just updated the question). Your most illustrative answers will be catholic, because Protestant memorialists would say "it's just a symbol" and therefore it doesn't matter how it's done.

It will of of course depend on your theology of sacrements. I think that it should be clarified that this question is for sacramentaliats only.
