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.

Welcome to C.SE. When you get the chance, please check out our tour and specifically How we are different than other sites. I'll admit, I found this answer to ramble a bit, but towards the end, I think you started answering the question. You may want to consider what answers the question and what doesn't

Welcome to C.SE. When you get the chance, please check out our tour and specifically How we are different than other sites. I just don't see how this answers the question.

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.
