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 Are we saved by Grace Alone or Faith Alone?
@aslan You assume their respective fields overlap. I think that's where you're confused (and this answer does not clarify). In Reformed Protestant parlance Justification and Salvation are not referring to the same thing. The rest of this answer is fine as far as it goes, but it would be much better to include the difference between those issues so it's clear why a separate "alone" can be used when referring to the prerequisites.

comment Are we saved by Grace Alone or Faith Alone?
This doesn't address the issue that was asked. The words being questioned don't use "by" and "through", they both use "by" (roughly in English).

comment What is the difference between pre-Nicene Trinitarianism and Arianism in terms of their Christology?
@thedarkwanderer I agree this question is too long and convoluted. A large portion of that content would be part of a decent answer, not part of the question. On the other hand your chop-job on it bordered on insulting. I've rolled it back and am going to ask the OP to do some cleanup instead. Some context for the question can be expected in any decent question, it just isn't necessary to stake out a defense of an entire theological position as port of a question.

comment Biblical basis for “We are the living law”?
I've heard variations on this a couple times but nothing consistent enough to pin down. It could be coming from somewhere, but when I've questioned it there has been nothing but really shaky exegesis of bits of verses like "dead to sin". I've yet to run across it fleshed out and agreed on by any group, but that doesn't mean its not out there.

comment Does Joyce Meyer preach salvation by faith in Jesus alone (ie not works)?
@bruisedreed I believe that quote came from a conference recording. I recall seeing that bit in context off the DVD at some point but have been unable to locate a full source online. The soud-byte excerpt is available online many places. If anyone finds a fuller excerpt please feel free to link it here!
