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 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.

comment How can God be thought of as Good when He killed so many people for things they were not responsible for?
Neither homosexuality nor a foreskin (save the Zipporah instance- but there we are talking directly in God's Shekinah presence) were punishable by death.
