Randall J. Greene

I am a guy seeking God, pursued by Christ, and living in grace. Everything I am is a work in progress, and I'm trying really hard to learn something along the way.
Read My Story

My Family

My wife's name is Shannon, and she is a far better writer, theologian, etc. than I am (check her out). We have an amazing corgi-chihuahua mix named Oscar that keeps us company.

My Location

We live in a comfy little house in Kansas City, Missouri, which we absolutely love. We grew up in St. Louis, though, and will always be Cardinals fans.

My Day Job

I work as a web strategist for a church here in Kansas City. At the same time, I am pursuing a Master of Arts in Theological Studies degree at Central Baptist Theological Seminary.

Whispers of a Stronger Faith

In Whispers of a Stronger Faith: Stories of Faith and Discovery, I have chronicled my story of wrestling with the fundamentalist Christian worldview in which I was raised. This short Kindle book was released in October 2016, and you can pick up a copy for just $0.99 as a Kindle book or for $5.99 in paperback.

If a nation attempted to do that today, we'd call it mass genocide. If someone said God had told them to do it, we'd call them a religious terrorist. How can we make sense of the violence of the Hebrew Bible in light of the life and teachings of Jesus Christ?

The Symbolism in my Tattoo

I recently finished a tattoo on my forearm. In total, I spent about 18 months working through the design and I get a lot of questions about what it means, so I thought I’d put together a quick blog post explaining some of the details.

What the Nashville Statement Actually Says

The CBMW, an American evangelical group trying to revive destructive patriarchal norms in our society, recently released a statement on “biblical sexuality” called the Nashville Statement. Much of their language is cloaked in allusion to help them gain an audience within mainstream evangelical Christianity, so I've provided a line-by-line interpretation based on my (critical) following of the CBMW and my personal background in fundamentalist evangelical Christianity.
