Reformed Reasons is devoted to the articulation and defense of Biblical Christianity. Theologically, I am Reformed Baptist. Apologetically,  I follow the Van Tillian camp of apologetic method.

1689 London Baptist Confession

About Me:

About me: Married with four children and five grandchildren. I have pastored several churches in three states. I hold a ThD in Systematic Theology and have focused a great deal of my attention and studies in the area of Presuppositional Apologetics. Outside interests include Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and Guitar. I own a 1986 Fender Strat that I bought new and a 1995 Taylor 410. I live in the Charlotte NC area and work in adult learning and development.

This website is devoted to adult Christian education. The content is geared toward an adult learning approach. For this reason, the content will usually focus on those major areas of major areas. In other words, the largest mountains with the largest boulders. However, links to specific details will be built into the major areas as the site grows over time. The major areas of concern are theology and apologetics. Any approach to apologetics that is not rich in theology is generally deficient and inadequate to serve as a good tool for engaging the lost. Such approaches are quite often heavily influenced by enlightenment philosophies and views of Christianity that are more rational than biblical. They should be avoided.

The author of this site is a confessional, Reformed Baptist. I adopt a covenantal approach to theology and a presuppositional approach to apologetics. I embrace all but one article of the 1689 Second London Baptist Confession. I take a moderate view of the Sabbath.

What you will find in this site are major sections on theology, apologetics, cultural issues, major challenges to the Christian faith, and my blog. Within some of those sections, you will find links to tutorials that take you a little deeper on certain subjects. The site is new and the content is scant at this point. Please continue to stop by as the site will continue to grow and evolve over time.

This site defines Christian apologetics in this way: the attempt to persuade men to believe the truths of Biblical Christianity.

What is the basic tenet of non-Christian thought? The one thing that all non-Christians believe regardless of age, race, gender, or religion: Jesus Christ is not Lord of all! This is the hope that is in us! It is this tenet that Christian theology aims to correct and that apologetics is responsible to refute, to reduce to absurdity in honor of our Great God and King, Jesus Christ!

There are two alternatives for handling serious doctrinal error and heresy in the Church today.
