Up at the top of this page, there’s a link called “Contact,” which in theory allows you to send me a private message. However, for some reason, the WordPress software stopped forwarding messages to my email.
And I’ve just learned that this system has been broken for the last several months. I’m very sorry for being so slow in responding.
I’ve been able to dig out the old messages, but the bug has not yet been fixed. I understand that the webmaster is working on it.
In the meantime, just contact me by email: jfguin(at)Comcast(dot)net. (The parentheticals should, of course, be replaced by symbols. I write this way to avoid having my email picked up by spammers.)
There are a couple of recurring questions I can answer here –
1. You are welcome to print and distribute copies of my e-books, such as The Holy Spirit and Revolutionary Grace, so long as you do so at no profit. The same is true of the articles posted here. I’m not doing this for money.
In fact, if you give copies to your elders, Bible class students, family, or friends, I’d be thrilled. No royalty or further permission from me required — although I would enjoy hearing how the class or discussion went.
2. I just don’t have time to give individualized income tax advice. You need to see a CPA (not H&R Block or the like) and take printed copies of my articles on taxes and preachers or missionaries with you. Not all CPAs are up on this area of the law, but they should all be able to quickly figure things out with the help of my articles on taxation.
It really is astonishing how complex the tax law is regarding preachers — even more so for missionaries. Even very large, sophisticated missionary organizations struggle to advise on such things.
I’m not surprised that the articles on taxation have triggered so many requests for help, and I wish I had the time to do more.
