I am a web application developer working in PHP/MySQL/JQuery and related technologies. I also have attended two years of seminary. I am puritan in my theology and would point to the Westminster Standards as a good guide for theological questions.

comment Is it valid to use grape juice at Communion?
This is a question my church (Reformed Presbyterian) wrestled with for a while, we ended up with a mixed tray (I would prefer a common cup but oh well). I agree with what Narnian says, "The Fruit of the Vine" is what is prescribed. Never once does the Greek word for wine (oinos) appear in the related texts.

Yes, but what is the biblical basis for your answer @DoubtingThomas? We can think a lot of things 'personally' and that is what causes a lot of problems in the Church. I do agree with you btw, just want a Biblical answer.

comment Should a woman cover her head in Christian worship?
Customs don't change for no reason. Was it the womens' liberation movement that pushed the change through, or maybe some other change in culture?

Gilbert, Like your answer but you did not answer the question as to why women stopped wearing hats.

@DoubtingThomas me too. Problem is I work from home and it is super easy to be distracted by questions like this one.

@Iszi Not sure what you mean by this? Are you saying that you are giving an argument for children to be included at the table? My question was support for this view.

I think you are taking the idea of lost too literally. The sheep went astray and was found. I think a verses that you may need to consider are John 6:37 and John 10:29
