I can answer just about any doctrinal, relational, or Scriptural question from a "traditional" church of Christ perspective, and from perspectives of somewhat more progressive congregations. If you want an answer from a particular perspective, let me know that up front, and I'll respond in that vein. If you want to peg me on the liberal-conservative spectrum, I would suggest a bit left of center. Depending on the question though, I might be far left, or perhaps rather toward the right.
I have fifty years as a member of Churches of Christ. Over those five decades, I have taught teen classes, adult classes, served as a deacon and congregational administrator, Lay Leader at two military congregations, and finally as a shepherd of a 500 member congregation. Most of the congregations I have been a member of have been "mainline" congregations, but I am quite familiar with more conservative and more liberal congregations and views as well. I read and subscribe to various books and periodicals for churches of Christ, and have discussed a variety of topics with representatives of our various groups both in person, and via mail. One of my Masters degrees is from Pepperdine, so let that guide your understanding of my formal training.
Christian Association for Psychological Studies, American Association of Christian Counselors, and the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.
I hold a Masters of Ministry degree from Pepperdine University, as well as a Masters of Counseling degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Phoenix.
The greatest temporal honor I have had is to be an elder for ten years. The next greatest temporal honor is having been asked to preach for our current congregation.
What's NOT to like about knowing God?
Patience, grace, and acceptance.
Christianity isn't as hard as we want to make it.
We don't go to Hell because we sin. We are separated from God because we do not live like Him.

Miguel Well this is a sad story and if this is your story, I am sorry for you. No, none of us should embarrass another. Let's make a distinction between forgiveness and consequences. One can forgive
Hi Miguel, thanks for the follow up. I know of no Scriptures that directly compare the attributes of God and Satan, so providing direct comparative statements won't be possible. Nor are there passages
Miguel Thank you for writing. There are a number of texts which bear on your question. The first is the Creation account in Genesis where we read that Eve was crafted because "it wasn't good for
Miguel, Thank you for writing. If a day is holy, it should be reserved to God. However, there are no holy days for Churches of Christ. Churches of Christ meet on Sundays because Christ our hope rose
Hi Miguel Thank you for sending your various questions. Jesus indeed would have worshiped on Saturday in the Temple and in the various synagogues. However, in the New Testament, the disciples met
