I am a husband, father, grandfather, pastor, and author. I am the Director of the Bachelor of Applied Theology program at California Baptist University. And I serve as a pastor at Fellowship Baptist Church in Riverside, CA.
But this is my personal blog, which focuses on helping the church (God’s covenant people) to understand the Christian life. A different way to say this is that theology is meant to be applied to life–thus, #AppliedTheology
My original life plan was to play football in the NFL (after having earned a law degree), then retire to sports broadcasting. However, I wasn’t that good at football, and theology turned out to seem more important than law. My life has turned out much better than I expected!
I have earned a Ph.D. in Ethics, but I understand the limitation of letters. My first Greek professor taught me that one is not obligated to believe something just because Dr. “Hu Flung Dung” says it is so. Knowledge does not find its end in titles or degrees. Rather, the end of true knowledge is truth itself. In this blog, we can encourage each other to persevere in the truth that sets us free (John 8:32).
