My name is John and I live in the Oklahoma City area. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Religion degree from Oklahoma Baptist University and attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. In the past I pastored Baptist Churches and was also chaplain at a funeral home. I believe in justification through grace alone by faith alone in Christ alone. I do not believe in Lordship justification. I do believe that the Holy Spirit is at work in a believers life to lead them to holiness and godliness. I am moderately Calvinistic in my understanding of salvation. Among other things I believe in Unconditional election and Irresistible grace. My eschatology is Preterist, nevertheless, I hold that some things are still future. I enjoyed James Stewart Russel’s book “The Parousia” on eschatology and recommend it highly. Edward Fudge’s book called “The Fire that Consumes” is a great book regarding the subject of Hell and annihilation and I recommend it also. I will be blogging on all kinds of issues so stop by often to see what’s going on. I have posted two or three blogs… Just click on the Archives icon for October and you can read them. I will be adding more soon. You can e-mail me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks and God bless.
