Vegan for health reasons since 1975. My biological age is about 42. I expect to live another 30 years and never become senile or feeble.
I am a survivor of childhood cancer, visibly mutilated by surgery. I have an amazing story of natural healing. I also have permanent injuries from a 1997 accident with medical complications. I bicycle for exercise. I am a very deep thinker and passionate about ideas ("Ideas have consequences"- Francis Schaeffer). I am INTJ on the Myers-Briggs chart. Although I am very intellectual and introspective I am also tender-hearted and capable of deep feelings. I am also handy and mechanical. In some ways I am a right-wing fundamentalist and in some ways I am a liberal- that's because the Christian lifestyle transcends all human definitions and boundaries. I own four handguns and have a defensive mindset. I did well as a survivalist in the July, 2019 earthquakes where I live.
I don't attend any church because there is no real church within any reasonable driving distance of the remote place where I live. I regard almost all of organized Christianity as being very corrupt.
I think it's contrary to God's plan and very psychologically unhealthful to live alone and be socially isolated. we live in a very sick and dehumanized industrial society. I believe that marriage and family is the basis of society (not much left of that basis, which is rather terrifying). Metaphysically I am still young because I am still learning about myself (how sick and twisted I am compared to the perfect humanity of Jesus), growing, and being conformed to the divine image. I feel a great desire to overcome the limitations of my depraved humanness- this is a basic characteristic of real Christians.
I am spiritually regenerated through faith in Jesus the Messiah and, accordingly, indwelt by the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity. I am not the typical, stereotyped insipid, shallow, rule-following, approval-seeking "Christian". I regard salvation as a wholistic restoration of the image of God in humanity, which begins at the New Birth. I am Reformed (Calvinist) in theology but don't believe that any denomination has all the truth. I regard Christianity (as understood by John Calvin) as a total world-and-life view. I don't see how Arminians can be Christians because their God is too remote. Francis Schaeffer wrote a lot of books directed to intellectual non-Christians to show them how untenable the non-Christian position is.
longtime vegetarian, healthy lifestyle. income or wealth not an issue. someone who thinks "outside the box". intelligent and sensitive. someone who can know me for who I really am and appreciate me as a fallen but regenerated human being.
