Get to Know Ben

About Me

This blog is dedicated the theology and matters of Christian interest. As a layperson, I’ve been learning about reformed theology partly as a hobby and party as personal necessity. During bouts with depression, loneliness, and besetting sins, I stumbled into the stunning news of the gospel of grace. I had known about the gospel for some time, I just had no idea about how good the news really was. Jesus died on the cross for me, and continually overcomes my weakness and guilt to impute his righteousness to me, even when I am apathetic or rebellious. God called me out of darkness and blindness to find not only truth of his forgiveness and righteousness, but that it was for me, specifically.

I’m a Presbyterian, and a happy Calvinist. I affirm the Apostles’ Creed, Nicene Creed, the Heidelberg Catechism, and the Westminster Standards.

I’m an engineer by trade, working on the programming and electrical side of industrial machinery design.

You might know me from Quora, where I’m an active contributor:

  1. Hi Ben. It’s nice to get to know you a little better. I have noticed some of your posts on the Rebelution forum and I noticed you had a blog so I came to check it out. Keep up the great work and passion for Christ. God bless!

  2. Hey Ben,

    I’ve seen you alot on the Rebelution forum so i though I would stop by. Nice blog keep up the good work.

  3. Hello Ben,
    I saw your post about Religion vs. Relationship on the Rebelution Forum and I thought it was very thought-provoking. After reading some of your other posts, I decided to visit your blog.
    I was rather astounded when I found your post on whether or not babies and those with mental handicaps will be saved. Over the last few days, I have been engaged in trying to find answers on this subject and stumbling across you post… the timing could not have been better! Thank you for your post on this very difficult topic. Although I am still studying different aspects of this subject, I appreciated your views and found them very insightful. I look forward to following your blog in the future.

  4. Hello Ben,

    Just stopped by your blog for the first time. I noticed you mentioned about your interest in church planting. I attend Covenant Life Church in Gaithersburg MD, founded by CJ Mahaney, who is also the founder of Sovereign Grace Ministries. I’m assuming you’ve heard of SG (I see you have Desiring God and Challies in your links), but if not, you may be interested in checking it out. It’s a reformed church planting movement based out of the D.C. area. http://www.sovgracemin.org Anyhow, nice blog! God bless in your studies!

  7. Hey Ben, I actually didn’t know that you were involved in the “Rebelution” until I saw these other comments. I actually found you while looking up articles on the relevance of Leviticus. I saw your post “Is Leviticus Relevant” and really liked it. I’m glad to know that there are other like-minded people out there…
    I am 17 and am a sophmore at BJU, I am a Christian, and I love politics, and history. Your blog looks highly interesting, I am looking forward to reading it in the future…

  8. So, what’s up with the blog. Here it’s 2012 and no entries.
    I liked “10 reasons the pope’s apology isn’t an apology” and I posted it on my blog and on christians4change.com
    I’m waiting on pins and needles to see how many thumbs I get, and which kind. lol.

  9. Hi Nichols,

    I haven’t abandoned the blog, I have just been focusing my attention on some other projects. I’ve realized more and more lately that saying, “yes” to one thing means saying, “no” to another. As I continue to get ideas for blogs I will try to write more of them. By the way, I clicked through your link but the page was missing.
