Ian Johnson bio

Ian Johnson is a Christian author who earns his living as a research paralegal. He is the co-author, with Lauston Stephens, of one published Christian book, Our Oneness in Christ (ISBN 1424160359), is the founder of and a major contributor to the website Christian-oneness.org, and is the author of the Place of Repentance blog and the Common Divisive Fallacies website. He was ordained to the ministry of the Gospel in 1995 by Randel Ministries, Inc., and for 18 months in 1996-1998 was volunteer Pastor of Topeka Faith Center in Topeka, Kansas. At his licensure by Randel Ministries in 1994, he was given, by prophecy and laying on of hands, a gift of healing for the mentally, emotionally and spiritually ill, a gift what was confirmed at his ordination a year later but a gift which he is only now, 20 years later, beginning to understand how to prepare to use, and to fan into flame and start using. He presently exercises his ministry mostly through his writings, a version of the teaching gift he has known for many years God has given him, and through various lay roles in his local church. In his day job, for 25 years, ending January 31, 2016, Ian Johnson was a research paralegal at Weathers, Riley & Sheppeard, LLP, in Topeka. He performed legal and scientific literature research, drafts pleadings for review by attorneys, participates in drafting discovery materials and major briefs, reviews and criticizes opponents' scientific claims and expert reports, and analyzes transcripts of expert depositions. Since February 1, 2016, he has been a research parlegal at Goodell, Stratton, Edmonds & Palmer, LLP, in Topeka, which acquired Weathers, Riley & Sheppeard by merger. Following a personal interest in disability issues, he was the first commenter to recommend to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission the concept that ultimately became 29 CFR 1630.2(j)(5)(v) of its final regulation implementing the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act of 2008.
