I am a Christian with a B.S. & M.S. in Mathematics.
I am married, with two kids who are my pride and joy.
I speak three languages (English, Norwegian, and German) and am learning two more (Korean and Japanese).
I am in the midst of tutoring a couple of high school students for the SAT II in chemistry. After reading this at Triablogue's blog, I guess I'll have to amend some of the material I've been teaching them...
You cannot separate what a man believes from what he is. For this reason doctrine is vitally important. Certain people say ignorantly, "I do not believe in doctrine; I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ; I am saved, I am a Christian, and nothing else matters". To speak in that way is to court disaster, and for this reason, the New Testament itself warns us against this very danger. We are to guard ourselves against being "tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine", for if your doctrine goes astray your life will soon suffer as well.
So it behoves us to study the doctrines in order that we may safeguard ourselves against certain erroneous and heretical teachings that are as rife and as common in the world today as they were in the days of the early Church.
