Ask A Question


As a former United Methodist pastor, I think I am qualified to address the issue of right and wrong. I believe some things are wrong, and some are right. Some actions may be right, but for the wrong reason. And some persons undertake wrong actions for a right reason.

Experience in the area

I was a United Methodist pastor from 1988 until the summer of 2010. I spent 6 years as an industrial Chemist. I have raised 2 kids. I have worked with youth for several years.


M. Div, Christian Theological Seminary (Indianapolis), 1991

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

In this day of moral relativism, I still talk in terms of right and wrong.
