Introducing myself Buddy Varner
I am thankful that CCEL exists, because its very hard to find Ancient writings pertaining to the Biblical cultures in which the Bible was produced. I was surfing the web for fome information and somehow ended up with your site. I am a student of Online Academy of Biblical Studies and have been blessed with some very knowledgeable instructors who defend the inspiration and authenticity of the Bible as God's Word; I am learning to defend the Biblical truths and doctrines.
Getting back to who I am; I'm 60 years old and a disability retired Government worker. I am happily married 40 years; have three daughters, 5 granddaughters and 1 grandson. I was born in Washington DC, in a military family; the oldest of 7 children; 3 brothers and 3 sisters.My lineage and my fathers side includes at least 3 generations of preachers. On my mothers side of the family my lineage extends to the well known Alex Haley, the author of Roots.I received a preacher's license from the United Methodist Church when I was 18 and since that time I have occasionally preached since that time; frowing in knowledge through the years.There is something very pressing that I have to attend to at this time; I will continue my introduction later; my email is firstname.lastname@example.org if there is any response or discussion thus far with what I have written. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to be heard.
