Profile Information

Tell us a little about yourself
I'm kind of contradictory-- like most Geminis (though I'm not saying I really believe in astrology). I'm conservative yet creative and artistic; theological but a good dancer, I'm a musician and love movies but mostly read non-fiction. I always seek to be a better Christian, and to use whatever gifts God has given me to make an impact in this world that neeeds Him so.
How would you describe yourself theologically (ie. what do you believe)?
I'm a Christian who believes in the reformed doctrines of grace; I'm a Credo-Baptist; not fully decided on eschatology scheme; I lean towards cessationism. I believe in a God who is sovereign and almighty, thrice-holy, who is working in all things to bring about His desired end, the celebration of His glory. He is a God of miracles and power yet the miraculous does not seem to be His usual mode of action.
Who, outside of Bible characters, is your favorite theologian or pastor of the last 2,000 years.
I'm a fan of Augustine and Spurgeon and Calvin
What is your web-address (NOTE:This is not your email address and should not be spam)?

Is Hell Reasonable? (Part 1)

Posted on May 18, 2011 at 10:53am 0 Comments



In my previous article, Lady Gaga, Rob Bell and Hell, I spoke of the controversy that has surrounded Rob Bell's recent book, "Love Wins." I completely agree with Denny Burk's excellent review, when he says, "Bell likes to make… Continue

Lady Gaga, Rob Bell and Hell

Posted on April 28, 2011 at 9:57am 23 Comments

Isn't the whole point of religion to teach us morals and to love and care for each other no matter what age, gender, sexual preference, religion or race we are?

The question was one among many comments posted on a recent YouTube video by Lady Gaga. In one segment of the video, titled “Gagavision No.41”, Lady Gaga sits in the back of her limo on the way to give a performance. She sees a Christian street preacher standing outside, protesting her show. He is carrying a…

Christ in you: The Greatest Christmas Gift of All

Posted on December 24, 2009 at 12:25pm 1 Comment

Today of course is Christmas Eve and many of us are eagerly looking forward to getting together today or tomorrow for happy moments with our families, exchanging gifts and enjoying hearty food, basking in all the abundance God so richly provides. Others are not so fortunate; they may have no one to celebrate this day with, and perhaps don't even feel much like celebrating. And perhaps because they are lonely or feel disconnected from family, the holiday season for them brings on… Continue

Knowing Revelation: Return to Your First Love

Posted on October 22, 2009 at 4:54pm 0 Comments

At my church today, pastor Ed Moore preached the first message in what will be a series of messages he plans to teach from the book of Revelation. Our pastor humbly admitted that his knowledge of eschatology (the study of last things) has been a weak area in his preaching ministry. Yet he also said he has been doing his homework in order to remedy this gap in his knowledge, and that he might preach more wisely and effectively in this area. He recognizes that… Continue

Yesterday it was my birthday. I hung one more year on the line... Paul Simon
So maybe on my birthday I ought to have been out celebrating, or doing something a little special, but instead I stayed home all day (I had asked for the day off from work). How did I celebrate my birthday? Well, I spent a good deal of time just cleaning around the house and getting things organized in my home office. Also I managed to have an daylong argument with my wife about keeping the… Continue

Hi Alex. It's been a while since we last communicated. I've been slowly working through a new series here on Theologica on cessationism and continuationism of miracles, healings, signs, wonders, etc. Thought you might be interested in interacting with the articles and commenters. Here is a link to the first article.

Thanks
Scott

Just found your ReformingChristianity.com site and as I'm looking to read up more on the Refomed faith it looks like it will help me a lot.

Thanks for making this available!

Hi Alex,

Just a note to let you know I appreciate your thoughts and ideas, and your thoughtful, reflective tone. I would like to add you to my friends list, if I may.

Blessings.

To answer your question, both. My passion is for christians to truly worship God and to truly know the God whom they worship as He has revealed himself in scripture. So understanding what scripture says is key, for myself first then training others. I am not sure how that will shake out in terms of full time ministry but God does.

Hi Alex. I appreciate your thoughts very much and find some commonalities. I went through a paradigm shift a couple of years ago from word of faith/charismatic/third wave to reformed thinking in my theology as I re-examined scripture. It's funny how that happens.

I also am a musician or used to be, play keyboards and a little guitar. I've written music and used to be on the praise team in my charismatic days. I still sing, though. Now am utilizing my teaching gifts and headed to DTS this fall. I really hear what you're saying about the whole direction thing. It's funny how that happens, too.

So stay tuned in. He'll make sure you end up where you need to be.

Enjoyed your input, here at Theologica. I've just recently discovered what " Reformed Baptist" is. I used to think it meant that they'd quit smoking behind the church between S.S. and morning worship service.
I've discovered "Founders.org", recently, but haven't found any individuals to converse with. I've been unable to locate either an independent or SBC church, that. isn't "majoring in the minors." Nearest Reformed Baptist church is about 40 miles away.
