Six Things You Should Know

There are some things you need to know about me.

  • Personal.  I am a Christian (for 36 years), a husband, a father, and a grandfather.  I am a member and serve at Brookwood Baptist Church in Shreveport, Louisiana.  I also serve as President of the Shreveport Chapter of Reasons To Believe.
  • Theology.  I am a Southern Baptist and within the mainstream of conservative evangelical theology.  My Statement of Faith is here: http://reasons.org/about
  • Old Universe/Earth Creationism.  I believe the paradigm of Old Earth Creationism best interprets the data from the special revelation (the Bible) and the general revelation (the record of nature) in the realm of origins.
  • Substitutionary Atonement.  On the cross, Jesus Christ became sin as the once-and-for-all sacrifice.  He exchanged His righteousness and sinless perfection for my sinfulness so that by my faith and trust in that sacrifice, I come into a right relationship with God.
  • Exclusivity.  I believe that Jesus Christ is the only way that mankind can be reconciled to God.  Therefore, all other religions are false.
  • Nickname:  I received the nickname “Professor” in seventh grade.  At the time, it was not a compliment.  Over the years, I’ve grown to like it.
