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.

revised What is the biblical basis for Dispensational Premillennialism?
Let's not do coming soon stuff on the main site. Cross referencing is fine once the content exists, come back and edit...

comment What are the differences between the different millenialisms?
On second review, this is just straight up wrong. The pre views are scrambled beyond explanation and it simply doesn't account for the actual distinguishing factors.

comment What is the biblical basis for Dispensational Premillennialism?
I think this question would benefit from having either the historic/classic variant or the modern/dispensational variant specified. Your description seems to be of the latter.

comment What are the differences between the different millenialisms?
@BryanRosander: I should work in an explanation of how postmillennialism places the tribulation and the connection with 70 AD. They certainly do think that is a past event so you're right that far, but Amillenialism definitely says the tribulation started after Jesus first coming and is on going until his second coming: as in not a future event but a current event. We're living in that now.

comment Why isn't God mentioned in Esther?
Excellent points here! I am curious what if any sources could be referenced to defend this position since it is so often glossed over our given a different emphasis in so many traditions today.

Welcome to Christianity.SE! Do you mind if I ask where you're from? Your set of languages and name place you in my part of the world.

comment What's the big deal about God's love by allowing Jesus to die and resurrect?
+1 for what I think is a great question Christians really should know an answer to, but I really would give basically the same answer here add I gave to Marc. Even though I have a vested interest add it were, as the fourth voice in a row to think this is a duplicate, I'm casting my close vote too. If you have something not answered there, please edit this question to just focus on that unique bit and we can re-open it for you!

comment How does the Bible describe the gender roles?
@DJClayworth: The OP specifically asked from answers from the Evangelical perspectives, not all Christians, which would have made this question far too broad. I mentioned the complementarian approach specifically because, while there are variantions on the theme, it underlies a lot of the doctrines of the various branches of Evangelical churches. There are certainly others, which is why I mentioned needing to cover other stances too, but all "Christian" viewpoints is not something we have a working definition for on this site and I disagree that that is where answers here should go.

comment How does the Bible describe the gender roles?
I would suggest that a really good answer to this question should include an overview that introduces some of the different stances taken by evangelicals and a robust description of complimentarianism and it's flavors.

comment Why do some Christian churches have classes about other churches?
I for one think that last bit detracts rather than adds to this question. I'm not even sure how I would word it as separate question because starting off with "should churches do x" generally doesn't lead to constructive questions.

comment Why and when did allegorical interpretations of Scripture lose their appeal?
I think a question like this could fly on Biblical Hermeneutics, but as worded it is very specific to Christianity and trends therein and thus I don't think migrating is a good idea as it stands. Would you like to try to edit it to focus on the historical hermeneutical trends both in and outside of Christian traditions or keep it here?

comment Does the act of sex constitute marriage in God's eyes?
This would also imply that it was not possible to be in a covenant relationship in the eyes of God without consummation. Few as they may be I think there is precedent for this being possible.
