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.

How is this a question about Christianity?

comment If Jesus was Sinless and had Free Will, how is the rest of creation not a mistake?
@psr: That's very amusing, but there is a difference between "contrary to" and "just not a part of in the first place". In your case you have a very limited nature to start with. You are finite. The logic doesn't apply the same way to an infinite being.

comment What is the use of faith if God doesn't need/require anything from humans to save them?
Heads up I'm trying to help the OP make this a useful question rather than a pedantic one. You might check the current edit and adapt your answer as necessary (or help edit the question if you have ideas to make it better!). I am deleting my own answer since it hardly applies at all now. Yours comes closer...

This edit looks like a much better place to start. I have edited the other question this spawned along a similar vein.

@AffableGeek: I don't think what got implemented is at all what wax was suggesting, and makes this question kind of awkward. Suggestions on how this could be made into a good question rather than a funky one? Please help edit it!

Please don't just act because you feel forced. That just make more mess because if you don't understand, it only means the actions you take will only make less sense. In this case you were not asked to split the question, you were asked to add focus and detail to your original question.

comment Are bad things in life Satan's doing or God testing/punishing me?
Please reference the teachings of even one group that claims to be Christian and says the problem that the thing their religion accomplishes is "avoid destroying ourselves". Also please reference in what way that group thinks that Christ was imperfect.
