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.

comment What does Psalm 146:3 mean?
I was differentiating between "the Son of Man," a title Jesus used. Out of context, it could be misconstrued as a reference. The "while I have my being" is in vs. 2, but I agree the question isn't overly clear.

comment What are the theological roots of “my testimony” in evangelism?
Pretty sure this is a duplicate. I think it's something Ike "when did personal testimony become important". On a phone though.

The only sentence I agree with is that this is a fairly typical ultra-liberal position

comment What traditions hold that Satan is not actually a person?
Bible Churches, which are often non-denominational do NOT subscribe to the point of view you state. I'd also argue that the majority of Protestants especially Baptists, the largest Protestant denomination in the US) definitely do think Satan is a person on average.

comment Is Christianity more friendly to its own Scripture translation than other religions? If so, why?
FYI, the answer is "Yes, way more friendly than just about every other!"

Plus, I don't think Wycliffe was martyred. Dishonorably exhumed after his death yes, but pretty sure he died a peaceful death.

-1 the Catholic Church has no such taboo on translating the Scriptures. The Jesuits, in particular had translated Scripture into 100s of languages before the 1700s, and Duns Scotus had done an English translation by the 1300s. You speak falsehoods here.
