Michael went to be with the Lord on February 14, 2015. He considered this his favorite hangout. I know he would have wanted to leave you an explanation for his lack of activity on this site.

Software Developer, part-time pastor, and I raise chickens. Who can't love a chicken?

For Christianity.stackexchange.com, my religious background:

  • Grew up in a Protestant, evangelical, nondenominational "Bible Church" (-1990)
  • earned a M.Div at a Baptist Seminary (2008) and pastored a very small Baptist church (2004 - 2008)
  • Served in an Episcopal Church, and yes I did that site. (2008 - 2013)
  • Back to a Baptist church that has a true passion for breaking down the barriers of church so as to focus on the original mission of the church - namely to bring Jesus to a dying world.

comment Who are the seven princes of hell?
According to what tradition? Of these, only Beelzebub, Lucifer, and Satan actually appear in Scripture, and they all seem to be the same person

Please don't take the VTC as anything other than you have asked a very good question that had different wording when it was asked before. (Note: It's an odd place when I +1 and VTC, and when I VTC at all... This really is a good question, it just has already been answered.)

This question is salvagable, but as it stands is looking for a very broad answer. If it can be refocused to particular differences, it would be better.

comment All my days are ordained before I was born?
@Jovay! Not that I disagree with you, but this answer doesn't really add anything to the question beyond a simple suggestion that God made your DNA - a fact with which I agree, but should be supported more if it is to be persuasive to your intended audience.
