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 reasons does Christianity give for “Why There Must Be A God?”
-1 For not covering only one possible line of reasoning (used by some Christians) without addressing how Christianity has historically and does currently address this question.

This question has undergone some revisions to highlight the focus on seeking for Christian responses. See this meta thread for more discussion behind this.

However true, an attack on Atheism by name here is only marginally relevant the the exact question asked, and what brought down a rain of off topic answers and replies. In an attempt to get this open again, lets save that content for a question that really calls for it.

comment How does Christianity respond to scientific theory that Man originated through evolution?
This doesn't answer the question. This shows how some Christians (those that believe in Theistic Evolution) approach this issue, but it does not explain how Christianity handles it. As noted in my comment on the question, this has to be an overview question or it simply will not work here at all. While expounding on one view, you have ignored the very existence of other approaches, some of which explicitly reject the idea you present.

BTW, I think my edit/expansion made a mess of this answer. In particular, the summary statements about different positions might not all carry the same tone. If anybody feels like they can edit them to better summarize the overall characteristics of each position, please feel free to edit. In particular if people who hole this positions feel like the tone could be improved, knock yourselves out!

comment How does Christianity respond to scientific theory that Man originated through evolution?
Asking "which is true" is totally an off-topic question for this site. Rather than close this out of hand, I have redirected it since we don't seem to have a simple overview answer to this around. For would-be answerers, please note that this is not a place to argue one view over the other, only to fill in the blanks and describe Christianity's approach(es) to this issue.

revised Why should a sinner suffer forever in hell fire?
Added some clues for how this kind of question needs to be answered to keep the answers coming from a Christian perspective and of the kind that can be validated as right or wrong based on Christian doctrine not on whether or not they belief Christian doctrine is right or wrong.
