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.

comment What is the Biblical basis that through the covenants God has promised to bless his people materially?
@Hello If you disagree about the tags you may raise the concern on Christianity Meta. You may not just keep adding the tag back. After being asked not to do so three times now you've gone and done it again so I'm now locking this post from all edits. If you want a different outcome and don't agree with the way it is, ask about it on meta!

@Hello Christianity Meta is the companion site for discussing issues to do with how this site works. If you think this is not a duplicate, you should post a question there giving your reasoning and asking the community to review it and either change it or explain to you why it's fine the way it is. If you don't understand why a tag does not apply, post a question there asking how the tag should be used. Please do not keep editing something in that the community has taken out---if you disagree or don't understand the place to discuss it is on the meta site, not in the body of the question here on main.

Also your last edit shows some pretty major miss-understandings about how the site works. If you are still having trouble understanding and want help from the community in explaining why this is a duplicate (and why you should move your answer), please post on Christianity Meta.

@Hello Your question is not about covenants. The fact that you believe the answer to be based on a covenant is irrelevant. Reformed theology sees everything as dependent on covenants, that doesn't mean everything gets that tag. The tags are not for your use as a question asker so much as for the site taxonomy. Please let the community that understands them manage them.

please do not add meta-discussion content _about_ your question to the question itself; if you'd like to dispute the closure please do so on in post on meta

Also you should know that @curiousdannii is right about tags. Please do not use tags that do not apply to the scope of your question. Whether or not you intent an answer to mention Abraham, he was not mentioned or even hinted as as part of what you were questioning. Likewise your even in the OT is used in answering this question is not about the OT. Tag taxonomy can be hard at first, so when you do get help in that area it's usually best to let more experienced community members clean things up. Tags aro not a chance to add 5 of whatever you feel like, they are for our local organization.

This post contains more statements than it does questions. As far as the basic scope of the question goes it seems to be largely the same scope as the other question. Any aspect in which it is different is entirely unclear from the current form. Also your answer would seem to fit on that question nearly as-is, so I see no reason not to treat this as a duplicate. Please repost your answer over on the other question and make any adaptions for it to address that context well.

comment Did God assign pain to women in childbirth at the fall, and if not-what then?
Can you please expand this to be a whole question? A few highlighted words in a verse does not a question make, and even the title is ambiguous about what you are actually asking. I can actually infer more from your answer about what the question is than is in the question, which puts other answerers at a disadvantage. They might be answering different questions. This might end up being better for Biblical Hermeneutics in which case we can migrate it there, but let's hear what the question really is first.

comment What is the history of the doctrine of inerrancy?
This starts out great in laying some ground-work for the belief, but I think to really address this question the belief must also be traced up to the present, noting any significant credal statements by the church through history and how the modern definition of the English word stacks up to the historical beliefs.

comment What is the history of the doctrine of inerrancy?
This starts out at a good place but doesn't follow through very well. About in the middle this post stops having references for any of the assertions and no terms are defined. Tracing the development of the modern view would seem to require more than this.

comment Are there any differences between Protestant and Catholic theology concerning the distinction between demonic possession from mental illness?
@Flimzy Given the voting on your comment I'm surprised this doesn't have more close votes. I certainly wouldn't argue with a community closure if it happens, but I tend to agree with Matt in that there are some official lines on both sides that could be mentioned, and even what you explained in your comment goes a long way toward answering this in that personal opinion varies widely on both sides in spite of official positions. That it itself kind of does answer the question without getting into the details of every view.

comment Are there any differences between Protestant and Catholic theology concerning the distinction between demonic possession from mental illness?
I'm going on record to say that I disagree with the close votes suggesting this is too broad. Sure it's a broad question but it's also answerable with a few specifics hitting the highlights and with pointers to avenues for further research.

comment What do modern evangelicals/dispensationalists believe about the general resurrection and final judgment?
Answers to this question are going to be—by necessity—somewhat subjective. However I would suggest that it falls in a class of subjective that we should actually be able to handle in this QnA format. I would only suggest that answerers review What are guidelines for "Good Subjective" answers on this site? before posting!
