A Filipino. Born-again christian since 1981. Former Roman Catholic-Youth Marian Crusade member. Former adherent to Reconstructionist and “flat line” covenant theology.
But now -Lausanne-Evangelical, Dordtian, Kuyperian, Van Tillian, Vossian, Marrowmen Free Offer of Grace, and New Covenant Theology adherent.
I also believe that to preach and teach the bible one must use a redemptive-historical-eschatological hermeneutic that gives justice to the divine-human organic nature of the Scriptures. It must be also faithful to the contextual and canonical settings of the verses -And to remain relevant to the people of God-it must be appropriately illustrated and applied in their lives.
