I am in my senior term at the Seminary of the Wilderness. My first ten years were spent as bi-vocational pastor/evangelist in Utah preaching of Christ how I knew best and trying to improve by learning theology from Reformed, Wesleyan, Pentecostal, Baptist and other sources. The second ten years were spent as a BVP/E and discovering that I didn't know what I thought I knew and reading the Bible without outside influence. At the beginning of the third ten I started seeing Christ in the OT, and tried to figure out how and why. I intend in the fourth ten to figure out how to communicate what I learned last term. After that I might be useful for something.

My bias in approaching the Bible is that I believe that it exists in a form today sufficiently intact to be considered infallible. That apparent contradictions are intentional riddles designed to guide us in focusing on different aspects of Christ. That sensus plenior exists in a form which is discernible in a verifiable, and reproducible manner. And that God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him.

comment According to Scripture, how should we interpret Scripture?
@Jack No, but that's why I included the quote from an Eastern Orthodox site. The church has always believed that he primary purpose of the scriptures is to reveal Christ. And in practice, since I am finding that they all do, as it gets documented, it will become more difficult for skeptics to deny.

comment Where did Abel get the idea to sacrifice sheep?
@swashek "Which animal was sacrificed is left to speculation and is largely irrelevant," I added scriptural support for the animal being a lamb.

comment Is “puppies” a justifiable translation of κυναρίοις?
"Historically it was a term that the Jewish population used for Gentiles" This author claims there is no documentary support for the claim. marknanos.com/Phil3Dogs-Reverse-1-17-08.pdf

comment How many people were killed by violence in the old testament?
Everyone who was alive in the OT, except Enoch and Elijah, died. They were all killed by Adam's transgression.

comment What are the strict set of rules followed by sensus plenior?
I use the term 'orthodox' loosely. There is such disagreement on so many points that it is impossible for it to agree with everyone's interpretation. But it should be shown that the fundamentals are orthodox, and secondary issues do not place it outside of normative Christianity.

comment Is Jesus giving the Spirit in John 20:22?
I suppose that considering them redundant terms is not a bad thing, since they are all one God. But it loses some of the depth of meaning when we blur distinctions that are made between Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

comment Is Jesus giving the Spirit in John 20:22?
I don't know how to make it clearer. I enumerated them:The Spirit of God, The Spirit of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. You can find all three used in the NT. They are just another expression of the Trinity.
