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 Is there any sense in being baptized as an adult after being baptized as an infant?
not to pile on, but while this answer may be a great opinion, it's a poor answer to the question. It handles it's own opinions well but does very little in regards to the counter case.

comment Are Job's seven sons and three daughters in Heaven?
This is a common interpretation since everything else of Job's was doubled. The only problem you have are the references in Job that seem to discredit the notion of life after death.

comment Is there any protestant method how to deal spiritual dryness?
The traditional recipie for dealing with Protestant dryness is to brine the chicken the night before the potluck, or when that fails, go to KFC. More modern evangelicals will substitute Chik-Fil-A. ... Oh, wait Spiritual dryness. The answer to that is to visit a charismatic church. :)

Welcome to C.SE! When you get the chance, please check out our tour and specifically How we are different than other sites. As it is, this is an on-target answer, but would be better if you could find additional support for your thesis. (Not voting either way until I see that).

comment What terms have been used by missionaries to Islamic countries to describe Islam?
You are conflating those with a political motivation (e.g. the Values Voters) with missionaries who have a religious motivation. Political people are going to say its political, Religious people are going to say its religious. That's just what people do.
