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 Names of angels and fallen angels?
@Kim-Alice I don't disagree those angels are named - but I said "in Scripture" the only reference you gave - to Enoch - is extracanonical for Protestants. The others don't appear to have any references. If you could give verse citations for the others, I'm more than up for updating my knowledge - but as it stands, I'm pretty certain I'm right on this one.

Also, just kind of wrong. Especially early in his time on a cross, a person can lift themselves up - and breathe, just with pain. As such, it is possible to talk for a time.

@lonesomeday D'Oh! Gnostics are heterodox, and I was going to say something about them. The catholic church was the first 'orthodox' or non-heterodox church. Will revise. Thanks!
