I am in my senior term at the Seminary of the Wilderness. My first ten years were spent as bi-vocational pastor/evangelist in Utah preaching of Christ how I knew best and trying to improve by learning theology from Reformed, Wesleyan, Pentecostal, Baptist and other sources. The second ten years were spent as a BVP/E and discovering that I didn't know what I thought I knew and reading the Bible without outside influence. At the beginning of the third ten I started seeing Christ in the OT, and tried to figure out how and why. I intend in the fourth ten to figure out how to communicate what I learned last term. After that I might be useful for something.
My bias in approaching the Bible is that I believe that it exists in a form today sufficiently intact to be considered infallible. That apparent contradictions are intentional riddles designed to guide us in focusing on different aspects of Christ. That sensus plenior exists in a form which is discernible in a verifiable, and reproducible manner. And that God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him.
I am no longer participating in SEBH because of open animosity by new moderators. Particularly curiousDannii who has said that nothing can be said to convince her that Notarikon is a legitimate feature of OT Hebrew, and she is actively working to shut down any posts concerning it.
Likewise, deceptive moderators have 'come along side' from time to time. Most recently it is requested that rather than demonstrate Jesus's use of the OT , that I instead provide all the ways that Rabbis misinterpreted scripture first. You can see recent 'discussions' on how I am placed in a catch 22. This is not honest, nor even charitable.
Since BH has chosen intellectually dishonest people to represent them, and they are now systematically closing my posts concerning sensus plenior, BH has become a joke. It began by shutting out others and they have now come for me. I vote with my feet to close the whole thing down.
