I am a Canadian, married with kid, and working in Hong Kong. I usually answer posts from a reformed / protestant / evangelical perspective.

People I have encountered on this site seem to be a ‘whole bunch of good people’. Even those who sharply disagree with my own point of view.

I am a huge sinner but am happy knowing God's grace will keep me in his grip.

comment Did the Jews use icons and images to help them worship as Catholics or Orthodox worshipper do?

comment Does the Bible say that it is better to have been born after Christ?
I think this points directly to the Biblical answer. Yes bright light must be beeter then dim light and in many ways the Mosaic institutions were a bondage that had to be suffered under until the 'better' arrived. Cheers.

comment When did Martin Luther begin to see the church as entirely apostate?
@Mr.Bultitude - thanks. no i have only read this one. I have all of Luther's works and have not even cut 1/4 through them. I only bought this other one to support/confirm my own impressions that I conclude when exploring his works directly because he changes/progresses his views so quickly across a short period that at time it is hard to keep track what he thought, without a summary guide to help a bit. His commentary on Galatians is his best of the best and I read it every few years again just for fun :)

comment Where did the idea of the Trinity come from?
@FMShyanguya - I just meant in the creation the first cause is the Father's will so he said 'Let there be'- his word is the Son while the Spirit carried on the immedite actings of the Father and Son, creating and perfecting the universe through the Word according to the Father's will. In other word the original will seems often attributed to the Father, such as 'sending' the Son, or 'choosing' the elect.

comment Whom did Lamech kill?
@blaster - 'people who believed', however weakly, in the Messiah promised to Eve, i.e, early church means those who had faith in God's promise that a seed would crush the head of the Serpent who brought the human race into death and sin.
