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.

The first sentence appears to be a quote - if you could source it, it would really improve this answer.

comment Were there really only twelve apostles?
I don't know of anyone who wondered if Cephas (Peter) replaced Judas - I do know there is debate as to whether it was Paul or Matthias, but Peter's apostleship was in effect long before Judas' betrayal.

comment How to pronounce references in the Bible?
Does it really matter? You're telling them where to go if they want to follow along. Whatever best communicates that is what you should go with.

comment Why Can Prostitutes Come to Solomon?
Just because someone has sinned does not mean they should be excluded from justice or even from the church for that matter. My point was, these were the people Jesus loved, and so should we!

comment Why Can Prostitutes Come to Solomon?
@SharenEayrs I'm not understanding your comment. You were saying '{people who sin} can't get justice' and you were using the term criminal. I am saying, that's just silly - we're all guilty before God, and we are all still entitled to justice. Your question is nonsensical at best and based on heresy at worst.
