Hello my name is Seth Tipton. I have previously hesitated to provide a biography about me on this site for this reason: I'd rather let the scriptures speak for themselves. I had always believed, and still do, that if someone presents the Scripture, it should not matter who they are. Either you agree or disagree, but let it be on the Scripture not a bio or a list of credentials.
I have no interest in promoting myself, only in promoting the Gospel with copious amounts of Biblical scriptures as a foundation.
A couple thousand years ago 12 men were chosen by Jesus Christ to be disciples. He just walked up to them and essentially said: "follow me." It varied from man to man, but that was the gist of it.
Today, a Christian might ask one of these 12 disciples, questions this: what are your qualifications? Do you have a bio? What do you do for a living? Do you have a seminary degree? Are you an accredited scholar? Are you Catholic or Protestant? If Protestant, what denomination do you belong to? Do belong to any official Christian affiliations or associations? Do you have an official doctrinal creed posted anywhere?
Obviously I am not an Apostle or one of the 12 disciples. I am a Christian who has a few papers and links posted on his website. But I wonder how the 12 disciples reply to questions like that? I do know what Jesus had to say:Luke 10:21-24
In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, "I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.
All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him. And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see:
For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.
The foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to naught things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence.
Do you still want to know my religeous pedigree? ;-)
Very well, here you go: I was raised in a Protestant Christian family with traditional beliefs, but I am neither Catholic nor Protestant now. I am just a Christian. I am not wise, not mighty, not prudent, and not noble. I am not an official scholar. I have no degree from any seminary. I can barely even spell half the time, and I am sure that an English teacher could dress down my grammer to the last line. I am a foolish and weak; a babe. And according to the ways of the world, I ought to keep my mouth shut. Since all the above is true, I do keep my mouth shut, as I prefer to let the Bible speak for itself.
I do not believe in posted creeds. The scriptures in full are my official doctrine. I am not affiliated with any official Christian organization including links I provide on this site.
I hope I covered it all. If you have any questions, please email me and
I will be happy to answer. May you be at peace and God Bless you. :-)
