Expertise

Using the Bible as my primary source and references in support of it, I am willing to answer questions on subjects from the Old and New Testaments. My faith is based on biblical Christianity and fundamental views from the Bible. I cannot answer questions about specific sects or religious organizations nor can I address religions outside biblical Christianity. As a Christian for over 40 years, I have studied many aspects of the Christian faith. My particular interests are in creation and the natural processes of the world around us and how they fit with the biblical record. I believe that all Scripture is inspired by God. I believe that there are no contradictions in the Bible and that the Bible is complete in telling us as individuals how we should relate to God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit; our purpose on earth; and how we should live. Greek lauguage study has helped me gain additional insight into the New Testament but most of my reference work is done in English and, to a lesser degree, German.

Experience in the area

Personal Bible study over the years, lessons delivered in Sunday School settings and messages during organized services, and leading Bible study series have prepared me to be comfortable addressing questions from others.

Education/Credentials

Formal study includes Greek language. I am a layman without a theological degree. Training has come from sitting under the ministry of excellent Bible teachers for my entire adult life, personal study, and selected courses. Secular educational background includes an undergraduate engineering degree, graduate work in engineering and business, and advanced courses in business and theology.

2016-11-10 Religion and christianity:

The short answer is "yes".  For example, in Acts when Paul was talking to King Agrippa, he noted the objection that religious leaders had against Jesus and specifically mentioned the religion of the Pharisees

2016-10-24 "innocent" people - do they have the chance to believe:

These are hard questions, sorry for the delayed response as I thought about them.  The questions your son raises are often used as an excuse by unbelievers who challenge why a good and holy God would allow

2016-10-16 Rain:

Bob,    In Genesis 2 (specifically verse 5 but the context is important), we see that no rain had fallen according to "the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created" (verse 4).  We also

2016-09-18 Scripture:

The short answer is that David had multiple wives because he was a sinner.  It is clear that Mosaic law states that kings - and, I believe, anyone - should not have multiple wives (see Deuteronomy 17:14-18)

2016-05-10 Broken in despair:

The passage in Hebrews 6 applies, I believe, to those who saw the truth but didn't accept it (enlightened mentally but not regenerated spiritually, as in verse 4).  These people have "tasted" the truth
