      Referral from MarkFL

      I've worked with MarkFL quite a bit over on Math Help Boards, helping to administer the site; and he, knowing I am a Christian, thought CH would be an interesting place to hang out. So, I signed up, and am interested in discussions about theology in particular.

      I'm Christian first by the grace of God, Reformed second, Presbyterian third. That's a very firm order. Christ is my identity. I believe the Bible is inspired, inerrant, and infallible, the only ultimate rule of faith and practice. I am utterly dependent on God for everything.

      I subscribe to the Nicene Creed, and the Westminster Standards. I attend a Reformed Presbyterian church here in Raleigh, NC. I'm married, also by the grace of God, and have four children ranging in age from 5 months to 8 years.

      I am a mathematician by training, and a systems engineer by vocation, although for the last 3.5 years I've been teaching in classical Christian schools. I've gone back into engineering.

      It's fun to see that Mark has implemented a number of our MHB tweaks here. Great job, Mark!

      Welcome aboard, Ackbach! I am truly honored that you have registered.

      You will find that just as we value user feedback at MHB, the admins and other staff do here as well, so any suggestions you may have would be greatly appreciated.

      I really look forward to reading your thoughts on theology as well, because I know from reading some of your blogs that you bring the same high level of analytical thinking to theology as you do for your insightful posts at MHB about math and physics, and your attention to detail regarding site administration.

      We are truly fortunate to have you, and again, thank you for accepting my invitation!

      By the way, I should mention that the original idea for the "Featured Threads" product came from the owner of this site, Romanos.

      Welcome, I hope you enjoy your time with us!
      "Do what thou will shall be the whole of the law" - Aleister Crowley

      "If you love me, obey my commandments" - Jesus Christ

      The Bible comes as a complete package. If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.
