I am a scripting language connoisseur, regular expression aficionado, network geek, general lover of Linux and a frequent contributor to open source software. I transitioned to programming from other work because I was too busy automating my own work environment to actually do the other work. I have a hobby interest in cartography. For more see my personal site. Most importantly, my life is defined by the grace of God given to men through Jesus Christ. It is my ambition that everything I do would reflect His glory and point people towards Him.

This site expects answers to represent established teachings not your opinions. No matter how much you think it "stands to reason", what you have put down here is patently false according to Christianity.

comment Do Catholics believe that Jesus' time in the wilderness was meant as an allegory?
According to who? Some people don't think anything in the Gospels is historical fact. Others set their clocks my it. If you are asking what Christians believe about something you need to be more specific about who you are asking.

comment Why is Jesus looking on an oddly standing stone?
@rhetorician If you think there is a problem with the site and/or have a suggestion for fixing it you can raise the issue on Christianity Meta. That's both the place to raise awareness for such issue as well as decide what site guidelines are for dealing with them. In the mean time comments are not the appropriate venue for this kind of discussion. Thanks for understanding.

@ShaneHemingway That might be another question, maybe even one for Mi Yodeya.

comment What Countries in the world are considered Christian states?
@fredsbendtheGrinch I don't think the really problem is being a list as the list is of a fixed length and it's reasonable to handle it in the length of an answer post. List questions are a problem when they are open ended and answers can keep getting added and grow forever. The issue I see with this question in the terms are really poorly defined and are going debating proper meanings for them is going to take more of the limelight than answering the base question.

comment How do modalists understand the role of Jesus as mediator?
@ fredsbend Actually we're up to 7 deleted answers on this post (some by owner, some by mods). That's why Community ♦ marked it as protected. It's going to take some actual expertise to answer, not just people spouting ideas.
