comment How does reformed theology view hypnosis?
@Mike: your answer is great. I liked the way how you (1) take hypnosis (2) break it down into its roots (3) analyze each part separately. It's almost "algorithmic" in providing a fish vs teaching to fish. I've just been preoccupied with other theological questions (many most posted), and haven't had a chance to reflect on your response.

comment According to Reformed Theology, What is the greatest assurance of Salvation?
@Caleb: So this is an issue that Christianity is quite divided on? (For example, the mention of "speaking in tongues is assurance" seems to be nullified by Paul's letter to the Corinthians ...)

comment According to Reformed Theology, What is the greatest assurance of Salvation?
You're absolutely right, as written, it sounds like true believers become sinless. How do I phrase this better "try to follow" seems to leave too much to interpretation, yet clearly "succeeding at following" isn't possible this side of death.

I recommend John MacArthur's "The Glory of Heaven."

comment What is the difference between “called” and “chosen”?
Concerning "We hold some Calvinist views, but not all" isn't TULIP all or nothing? How does Calvinism not fall apart after the removal of irresistible grace.

comment How does reformed theology view hypnosis?
@Caleb: can you expand? I've actually always been curious about whether hypnosis is real or not (though Feynman's account makes me believe it's not complete BS) -- and I've actually always been curious about the relation between self hypnosis and high focus.

comment Is there a concept of Christian State in Christianity?
Were the Puritan efforts -- leaving England for religious freedom -- considered an effort at a Christian State?

comment Why is Jesus at the center of everything
@SanJacinto: I also like Compilers, AI, Machine Learning, and Software Architecture. However, I don't like embedded systems. :-( In fact these days, I can't imagine programming in anything besides Clojure.

comment What have past theologians written about preparing to die?
The closing of the questions is more interesting than annoying. For some reason, even on technical stackexchanges, I tend to polarize people. :-)

For some weird reason (read: Hard Work), you seem step ahead of me in numerous areas of scriptural knowledge. Your profile mentions you're working in HK. If I ever visit there again, we should meet up and discuss all the questions that'd get closed on christianity.stackexchange.com :-)

I agree with your comment. Can you think of any way to narrow it?

comment According to reformed theology, are _all_ wealthy Christians required to give their wealth to the poor?
I believe I can be identified by the Gravatar icons since they come from the same IP addresses.
