I am a web programmer by day (PHP) and work on sermons and teaching material in the evenings.

I attended Assemblies of God Theological Seminary in Springfield, Missouri, for a Master of Arts in Theological Studies and a Master of Divinity. I am an associate pastor at a small church in Iowa. While in seminary, my emphasis was on Old Testament studies, but Dr. Wave Nunnally introduced me to the rabbinics. Those have become a special interest as well.

I also enjoy apologetics and was a very active member of the apologetics.org forum before it went defunct.

comment Could the “tree of knowledge of good and evil” mean “tree of intelligence”?
@JackDouglas Right. If we know mentally what is good and what is evil then we can choose to do the good and avoid the evil.

comment Could the “tree of knowledge of good and evil” mean “tree of intelligence”?
@JackDouglas, I would say so. ""Behold, the man has become like one of us in knowing good and evil [by experiencing it]."

revised Does the New Testament use the divine name “Yahweh”?
"Mentioning YHWH" could be misinterpreted as "speak about YHWH".
