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 According to Jehovah Witness Satan was cast to earth 1914
This really doesn't answer the question directly. Also you're skipping over the fact that very many denominations do in fact belive that Satan has had limited or restricted access to earth for the last two thousand years but that he will be given looser reign at some point. The case is made quite strongly from revelation and elsewhere. The question that needs answering is whether anybody believes that loosing happened in the middle of the twentieth century.

comment Why are we not seeing miracles in our lives?
@Dan I've been arguing for a long time that these kinds of questions MUST be treated as overview questions requiring a look at at least the major views. Anything at all that tries to resolve an issue and arrive at a right answer apart from a specific tradition is automatically not constructive.

comment Is there any biblical doctrine on how to avoid paranoia as a Christian under an Protestant framework?
I'm bringing this question type directly to meta for discussion: Are "what advice does the Bible give on X topic" questions constructive?

We don't generally delete things that are closed as duplicates, they are considered good markers to help people find the open questions they are looking for. I have considered merging these two several times to get the answers all in one place, but they would also need some clean up...
