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 Reformed Theology, Pentecostalism, and Charismatic Movement on The Holy Spirit
Some valid points in your summary but notably missing is the fundamental different understanding of what the gifts ever were in the first place...

comment How does mainstream Christianity view “Heaven is for Real”?
@JBunyan: Point taken. I was a little hash there. However, this was towards the end editing a whole series of questions for clarity. Most of the others from this OP I could see what the main question was, but I failed when I tried to edit this one because it seemed to have multiple prongs going on and I thought the OP needed to pick the focus rather than me as an editor. I did commend the OP for their effort in some previous comments, and the edit they made on this one to clarify that it was about this book was just the ticket.

revised What does the Bible say about how we should pray?
All answers should already cite their sources, no need to clutter subjects with this. If they fail to its' a good time to comment.

comment What is the biblical basis for lifetime eldership?
Thanks for your post and welcome to Christianity.SE. I understand these points are relevant to eldership in general, but I don't see how it answers the specific question this OP was asking. These points could apply to eldership whether the term was a month or a lifetime. The question being posed is "What do churches who believe in lifetime eldership terms see as the Biblical basis for their position?" Do you care to take a stab at that question or at least relate these points to that issue?

comment What is the significance of Lamech's boast?
I would have +1'ed this anyway as a sound and concise response, but I think it deserves and extra for the post script. I'm pretty sure we could also rule out Adam, Eve and probably anybody else older than himself. And in the end it doesn't matter. The importance is that he was a murderer :)

comment Who is “Samuel” in the story of Saul, Samuel, and the Medium?
No, but it just the first line or two of the question with no formatting. Don't worry about it that much, but keep in mind that the first couple lines set the stage for people who won't read the whole thing.

revised Did Christ know who He was as a youth?
This isn't a question ABOUT the church fathers or ABOUT biblical basis, so removing those tags. Edited that part of the question to read more naturally.

comment Are there disagreements between Reformed Theology and the teachings of A.W. Tozer?
Tozer wasn't Reformed so of course there will be differences. In spite of that his schollarship is still well regarded, I don't think he's usually branded as a heretic even by people that disagree with him on some points. Do you have a reference for his "relation to Christian mystics"?

Notes should be footnotes, not what you lead the question with because that's what shows up on the summary page. Also, I think the formatting was way more complex than your question.; edited title

For reference, compare what shows up on the home page and the tag overview pages before and after my edits.

comment Who is “Samuel” in the story of Saul, Samuel, and the Medium?
The effort spent formatting your questions is appreciated, but this particular format isn't that helpful. Try reading the tag overview page. The headers and long link are basically all that show up, you can't tell what the question is about without opening it. Even opening it, the verse reference is buried in a URL that people either have to parse out or click on. The first couple lines of your question should give people an idea of what you are asking, then you can fill in detail if you need to. Questions should be readable if if the formatting aids were removed (as they sometimes are).
