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 a basis for Christian holidays in the Bible?
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 stands, this is an okay answer - it's basically saying, "No, holidays are pagan" but it doesn't really evaluate possible counter claims to the thesis. Additionally, it would be helpful to source the denomination for which this speaks.

Welcome to C.SE! When you get the chance, please check out our tour and specifically How we are different than other sites. I'm trying to ascertain whether this is a legitimate or rhetroical question. We really are a Q&A site, not a forum - and this seems more like a discussion starter than a real request for information.

So, I have to say, this isn't a very good answer. When you get the chance, please check out our tour and specifically How we are different than other sites. Specifically, this doesn't really answer the question, although, the question isn't very clear...

comment Why did the disciples cast lots when the Holy spirit was promised
So, first off, when you get the chance, please check out our tour and specifically How we are different than other sites. I know its nitpicky, but we are a question and answer site here. If your post title isn't a question, it isn't good. I don't want to get into a reversion war with you, but I would strongly suggest you reconsider the title and the suggestions I made for improving it.

This is actually a superb question. I know some people will say this is primarily opinion based, but this is actually exactly what experts would want to know.

Sorry, I was being oblique - Israel mean "Struggles with God"
