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.

On a phone- but Matt 22 comes to mind, trying to trick Jesus in re: marriage.

comment Is a claim of 50,000,000 Baptist martyrs accurate?
You do know that this book has been discredited more than Left Behind, right? It ranks up there with "Time on the cross" as outdated propaganda.

comment What was C.S. Lewis referring to in The Weight of Glory?
Sorry for the short answer. Not really able to expound right now, but wp does a good job of summarizing the failings of the modern education system to which Lewis is referring

Welcome to C.SE. When you get the chance, please check out our tour and specifically How we are different than other sites. This just doesn't sound like an academic answer.
