I'm the user formerly known as md5sum, for those who wonder.

Currently, I'm a developer in the Property & Casualty Insurance division of Accenture Software.

I started playing with GWBASIC on our Commodore Colt at around 5 years old, and it was all downhill from there. I have now been programming professionally since 2005 and have several more years of part-time/freelance programming under my belt as well.

Currently, I'm specialized in C#, ASP.Net 2.0, and MSSQL, but my work experience is quite broad, including C++, PHP, Javascript, WPF, VB6, VB.Net, ASP.Net, MySQL, and I've dabbled in many others.

comment What symbols have represented Christianity through the years?
I think this may not be the best place to ask questions like this: "Your questions should be reasonably scoped. If you can imagine an entire book that answers your question, you’re asking too much."

comment What is the biblical basis to claim that masturbation is a sin?
The words "lovers of their own selves" (φίλαυτος), "lovers of pleasures" (φιλήδονος), and "lovers of God" (φιλόθεος) in this passage are in no way sexual or sensual. They each share a common root "φιλ" (pronounced "phil") which is from "φιλία" which is the love of a friend, specifically NOT "ἔρως" (eros) which is passionate love.

comment Does God have free will?
As long as He never makes said stone, He has the power to create it. At the point that He makes it, He has the power to move it :D

comment Was Jesus finite or infinite? (human or God?)
That is true, the infinitesimal mind of man cannot comprehend the true nature of God. He had to give up some of that complexity to join us here on earth. And we have the power of God through the Holy Spirit as well as Christ did. He was our example, showing us what could be done through the power of God.
