I've been a Christian since 1985, and a member of East Heights United Methodist Church in Wichita since 1994, though I no longer live in Wichita. My theology is Wesleyan/Arminian, but I don't think all Christians must share this view.

I believe that the Bible is inspired but not inerrant, that it was written to teach us about God and not the physical universe.

I believe faith is not an intellectual pursuit but a transformation of our entire being.

comment What are the evidences that Luke is written after/before the fall of Jerusalem?
The issue is not that nobody could have foreseen the destruction of the temple; it's that putting Jesus' prediction in writing makes more sense if the readers already know it was fulfilled. In fact, both Matthew (24:15) and Mark (14:13) have parenthetical notes to the reader emphasizing this very point.

comment Did Abraham leave Haran before or after his father died?
I may just wait and see if the community starts to favor one over the other. Then I'll pick the other.

comment Did Abraham leave Haran before or after his father died?
I received two equally good answers, and I'm not sure which one to pick.
