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 Do Cessationists believe that there are no modern miracles?
@MarcGravell Probably so. It's just kind of hard to put together a quality response hacking it out with one thumb on a crowded train.

comment Why are Independent Baptist Fundamentalists labelled Protestants?
Great answer and as an insider so to speak, seems more useful than mine in that you speak directly to the issue. Because the topic has been coming up in chat and questions, I'm curious whether you would choose to identify yourself as a "fundamentslist". Why or why not? Catch me in Christianity Chat?

Absolutely not! It's the how, why and on who's initiative that we disagree on.

comment What could persuade a presumably otherwise-rational Satan to turn on God?
Hey Chris's sister, Welcome to Christianity.SE. I noticed you tried to remove the content of this question. If you'd really like, we can delete this question for you (not just the question body but the whole thing). However, if you'd like, we might be able to help you edit it to be an answerable question. I think Christianity actually has a pretty clear answer to this question. If you'd like to try that please comment here and we'll help you edit it. For the moment, I've closed it pending some direction. If you prefer, we can delete...

comment Why are Independent Baptist Fundamentalists labelled Protestants?
@MaskedPlant: That would be very difficult to ask as a constructive question here, you would have to scope it carefully. But the answer is relatively simple. Neither Catholics nor Protestants nor Orthodox reject each other as being not part of some core markers that identify them Christian. They might reject that they are "true" Christians and might say they got Christianity all wrong, but they still recognize that some of the starting principles are the same.

@dongle26: If nothing else, you have a tradition of claiming you don't have a tradition. Even if you were a cult who's beliefs were a radical departure from any previous version Christian faith (they are not), you still ARE and HAVE a tradition. That tradition also has heritage. It came from somewhere, maybe through many iterations, but you bring that heritage with you.

I guess I'm not a fundy, I had to look Francis Turretin up.

Hey @dongle26 you might note that I have completely rewritten my answer. i hope that helps make the whole issue make a little more sense. We'd still love to see you in Christianity Chat if you'd like to talk about issue regarding the scope of this site and our general guidelines.
