I am a web programmer by day (PHP) and work on sermons and teaching material in the evenings.

I attended Assemblies of God Theological Seminary in Springfield, Missouri, for a Master of Arts in Theological Studies and a Master of Divinity. I am an associate pastor at a small church in Iowa. While in seminary, my emphasis was on Old Testament studies, but Dr. Wave Nunnally introduced me to the rabbinics. Those have become a special interest as well.

I also enjoy apologetics and was a very active member of the apologetics.org forum before it went defunct.

revised Does knowing a spirit's name give special powers in controlling that spirit according to Christian theology?
Jesus cast "legion" out of a man and into swine, not from the herd.

comment Are there Christian denominations that promote making themselves eunuchs?
Regarding Origen, he was a staunch literalist before he castrated himself. After that, he began his more famous allegorical/spiritual interpretations.
