Expertise

I am capable of answering any questions concerning doctrines of the church of Christ. I specialize in Creation vs. Evolution topics, the book of Revelation and other Biblical prophecies, and other apologetics related topics such as distinctions from denominational doctrines.

Experience in the area

My experience in this area includes: having been raised by members of the church of Christ from infancy, having been immersed into the church of Christ at age ten, having taken an active role in worship/service leadership (song leading, teaching, preaching, youth ministry) since age fourteen through the present, and participating in numerous formal debates, research projects, and online discussions.

Education/Credentials

I hold a bachelor's degree in computer information systems (CIS) from Tarleton State University which focuses on business communication and management. This provided training for how to deal professionally with individuals and organizations if not direct training in the field of religion. See experience section for informal education experience.

What do you like about this subject?

I enjoy discussing this subject because it provides me a further way to fulfill my duties to God: preach the gospel (Matt. 28:19; Mark 16:15), to give answer for the reason of my hope (1 Pet. 3:15), and to earnetly contend for THE faith (Jude 3). I love God and His Word so the more I meditate on things above, the better off I am all around.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I hope to provide clear, concise answers to those seeking to know more about the body of Christ primarily in order to reach others with the truth, but also to dispel some of the false notions about the church.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

*chuckle* I do not know what you may not know yet, that is why we are on a q/a site like this. I look forward to discussing what you may not know in the future!

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

A large number of our doctrines are not similar to those of Protestant or Catholic "Christianity". One of the most controversial doctrines is that there is only one body (Eph. 4:4), that the church IS that body (Eph. 1:22-23) therefore there is only one church, and that the church of Christ is that one church.
