Deeper Waters Forum Guidelines

Notice The ministries featured in this section of TheologyWeb are guests of this site and in some cases not bargaining for the rough and tumble world of debate forums, though sometimes they are. Additionally, this area is frequented and highlighted for guests who also very often are not acclimated to debate fora. As such, the rules of conduct here will be more strict than in the general forum. This will be something within the discretion of the Moderators and the Ministry Representative, but we simply ask that you conduct yourselves in a manner considerate of the fact that these ministries are our invited guests. You can always feel free to start a related thread in general forum without such extra restrictions. Thank you.

Deeper Waters is founded on the belief that the Christian community has long been in the shallow end of Christianity while there are treasures of the deep waiting to be discovered. Too many in the shallow end are not prepared when they go out beyond those waters and are quickly devoured by sharks. We wish to aid Christians to equip them to navigate the deeper waters of the ocean of truth and come up with treasure in the end.

We also wish to give special aid to those often neglected, that is, the disabled community. This is especially so since our founders are both on the autism spectrum and have a special desire to reach those on that spectrum. While they are a special emphasis, we seek to help others with any disability realize that God can use them and that they are as the Psalmist says, fearfully and wonderfully made.

  • Deeper Waters Podcast 4/25/2015: Paul Compton

    What's coming up Saturday?

    The link can be found here.

    The text is as follows:

    What's coming up Saturday on the Deeper Waters Podcast. Let's plunge into the Deeper Waters and find out.

    Friendship is something special and some friends last a very long time. One such friendship I have is with Paul Compton who I met when I was in Bible College. Later when I went to Seminary, Paul Compton was right there. He helped me and my roommate move in and get situated. Paul afterwards got a job at a church in New Hampshire and took the position up there, but we did stay in touch. In fact, Paul was one of the people that came to Charlotte for my wedding. Knowing about my having Aspergers, when he found out his son Timothy was diagnosed with Aspergers, he made sure to give me a call to see what I had to say. Since he's such a good friend and has a great interest in both apologetics and in autism, then I figured he'd be great to have come on the show to discuss fatherhood and apologetics.

    So who is Paul?

    And according to his own bio.

    Paul A. Compton is a pastor and apologist at Riverside Christian Church in Merrimack, NH. He received his B.A. in Bible from Johnson University (2002) and Master of Arts in Religion from Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte, NC (2008). He is an active member of the Evangelical Philosophical Society and the International Society of Christian Apologetics. Paul is also a founding and active board member of iHope International Ministries. In 2012, he was elected to the Town Ethics Committee where he served as Chairman. Paul is blessed with a lovely wife, Elizabeth, and two children (Timothy and Andrew) who encourage and support his service in ministry.
    Paul has also been doing some work, though I understand it has been slowed down, on starting his own organization to raise awareness about autism called "Autism Shouts." Paul is an enjoyable guy to be around who knows his Scripture and philosophy well and he has a sense of humor that you'll thoroughly enjoy, especially if you love puns.

    So what is it like being the father of someone on the spectrum? How does it change the marriage dynamic? If you're someone skilled in philosophy, how does that change your outlook on life? Do you see Aspergers as a hindrance or a blessing or is it some of both? How does Timothy interact with his friends? How does he interact with family? What's it like taking a child with Aspergers to church? What do you think the church could do differently for people who are on the autism spectrum? What advice would you give to parents who just found out that there child is on the Autism spectrum or suspect that their child is on the Autism spectrum?

    I am looking forward to this show. Paul is a good friend who has a good heart for Christ and has been a great friend to Deeper Waters throughout the years. I hope you'll enjoy his company just as much as I do and benefit from what he has to say.

    In Christ,
    Nick Peters

      The audio file has to be edited, and I don't have access to a computer with audacity.

      I find that evolution is the best proof of God.

          Speaking of audio, this might interest you, Nick:

          It was created by a radio host I listen to (who also posts his shows as podcasts) and iirc, it's covered by a bipcot nogov license (freely usable by anyone but governments).
