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 What is the oldest existing copy of Genesis?
Are you looking to see Genesis as a distinct book from the other 4 books of the Torah, or just as the Torah being distinct from the Ketu'vim and Nevi'im?

comment Are Paul's teachings normative today?
Wait, didn't see that you restricted it just women. Still, many churches do not ordain women, although this is changing, as the recent vote by the CoE to ordain female bishops shows.

comment Are Paul's teachings normative today?
Seeing as half the New Testament was written by him, gotta go with "Yes."

comment Why do Young-Earth Creationists make such a big deal about the YEC view
I'm not suggesting that OEC think the Bible untrustworthy, it is that YEC think that OEC think it is. It is a misperception, but that is how a YEC would see it.
