Protestantism/Expert Profile

Ask A Question


I have nine years experience as an evangelist and eight as an assistant pastor and youth counselor. I've spent a little over thirteen years investigating various religions - Protestantism included - by speaking to leading officials therein and discussing the basis of their beliefs.

I have experience answering questions dealing with Protestantism in general, ranging from the history and origins of the movement to the specific doctrines and beliefs of many denominations therein.

I can answer questions regarding the differences in various denominations, religious liberty, religious history, and Biblical prophecy. I have spent several years studying and answering questions on doctrine and theology, using the Word of God as the basis for what is true and false.

I greatly to answer questions based on fact - what does the Word of God say, what does history say, and what does it not say. Beyond that, please don't ask for or expect my mere opinions, because I am not in the habit of giving them.

Experience in the area

My specialty is in Seventh-day Adventist theology and history, however I have studied the Reformation and virtually every Christian denomination I have encountered in order to have a more complete and unbiased understanding of their beliefs and how they came to be.

I have been active in documenting and questioning the beliefs of Christian denominations for over thirteen years, ranging from discussions with leading individuals within the organizations to reading the books and materials provided by such groups.

I have had an abiding interest in Protestantism in general, from the time of Wycliffe on, for approximately fifteen years, and have gathered a reasonable amount of knowledge of the topic in that time.

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

Oh, there's always more to learn.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Surprisingly, the actual concept of "Protestantism." A Protestant is someone who rejects the Church's word over the Bible, and rejects the state's authority over the conscience. Sadly few "Protestants" understand "Protestantism" in a practical sense.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

It's been controversial since the Reformation - are you kidding? :)
