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.

rather than summarily deleting this as out of place on this site, I've edited out the portions that did not fit this site or question and tried to leave just the relevanat bits formatated in a way that is understandable

comment What are the differences between Mormonism and Islam, and how do Mormons react to comparisons with it?
There is some good content in here but it needs to be adapted to this site and this question or it will get removed. We need to remove the truth claim bits and just keep the identified differences. Also Islam's reaction to these differneces is not relevant to this question. The LDS perspective on them is what is called for here.

comment Catholics, for what ends is the Sacrifice of the Mass offered?
FMShyanguya you keep changing this, but none of the things you are doing are really making this a more focused question. It's simply too broad for this site. Why don't you read the Wikipedia article on the subject and then ask any specific questions you have that are not covered there? Some initial research effort is something we do expect of people asking questions here.

comment were the ancient Israelites of a darker skin tone?
Half of this makes sense. Half of it is meaningless strings of words. The phrase "typical Israeli/Northern African tone" conveys no meaning unless you meant to say in effect "Yellow. No blue!"

comment How widely held among Protestants is the belief that the authors of the books of James and Jude were half brothers of Jesus?
This question asks "how widely held" a view is. The only bit of this that answers that question is the first word "many" and the word "some". After that you spend a not of effort answering a question that was not asked about the Biblical basis for a view. Do you think you could do a better job quantifying this and focus on the question asked?

comment Cessationist supportive scriptures
The entire support for a view like cessationism would take multiple books or thesis to cover. That is far too broad for this context. You can see some highlights at the linked question above. If that doesn't work for you please edit this to be far more specific.

comment What does it mean for Christ to have been slain before the creation of the world?
@DJClayworth This is not about a particular text but about a thread of things through the whole Bible and is a very doctrinal issue, not at all suitable for BH. However well suited here, it is what it is because I don't think we can migrate this -- at least not asked this way.
