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)
  • Now attending 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.

Weclome to C.SE! When you get the chance, please check out our about and specifically How we are different than other sites. If you are going to posit that Jesus isn't saying what the plain sense says he is saying, you have a higher burden of proof. You get to the motivations of the Saducees, to be sure, but you don't really make a persuasive case for what Jesus was saying.
