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 do Reformed Theologians 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 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. :-)

comment What have past theologians written about preparing to die?
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 :-)

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.

comment According to reformed theology, why are certain important doctrines not “obvious”? [i.e. why does the Westminister Confession even exist?]
I don't understand the argument. I believe it's along the lines of: "The Bible is open to interpretation. Creeds exist to define how a certain group believes the Bible is to be interpreted." Question: "What is it about creeds that make them not open to interpretation? And why was the Bible not written in that way?"

@Jay: Just as babies run to their mothers, so rocks desire to return to earth.
