Been saved by Christ since 2012! I love God, and biblical truth. One of my hobbies is to study Scripture & to read many theological books.
To introduce myself:
1.) I hold to the inerrancy & infallibility of Scripture.
2.) I’m a non-denominational Protestant Christian.
3.) I am reformed in my theology.
4.) I desire to properly exegete scripture, and am willing to admit I can fail at that.
5.) I love God & the brethren & am excited to get to know people on BHSE/CSE.
