• I am a Christian. People like to use all kinds of modifiers and qualifiers and alternate terminology for Christian, but that’s probably not necessary. Jesus is my King and he has my highest level of loyalty.
  • I am a Bible reader. The Bible (the 66 books in the protestant canon) is a record of God’s word to his people. It is God’s word in the words of men (no women, as far as I know). A lot of it is narrative and not really amenable to easy translation into propositions, as so many want to do.
  • I am a thinker and a questioner and a poker.
  • I am sometimes irreverent when it serves the purpose.
  • I am a teacher and a student. I want to learn so I can share. I’m sick with cancer right now, so I’m not able to fulfill the need to teach very well. Very frustrating.
  • I’m a churchman, meaning that I support the church of Jesus. I’m not a Christian anarchist. But I am a would-be reformer.
