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 Was there anyone specific who ever argued that God was dead?
I'm really not sure what an answer to this question would be expected to accomplish. Lots of specific people have made this claim at various times and in various context, but what is meant varies widely.

comment What is the Biblical basis for disbelief in the doctrine of the Trinity?
+1. Even though I disagree with the conclusions and would even take issue with some of the reasoning, this is a very clear presentation of exactly the view point this question was calling for.

comment Did early church fathers understand the doctrine of trinity?
Thanks for the great edits @Lee. As much time as I spend programming in languages that start at zero and 1 is the second number, you wouldn't think I could make that sort of mistake and not even notice.

revised From a Calvinist perspective, does Limited Atonement make the Gospel offer empty?
① Limited Attonement is very specifically indicating the limiting is done by God, as in it tho mint was only purposed to be paid out to specific individuals, saying "to those who accept it" or similar kind of points in the oppisite direction. ② Reword to not imply that it's an invented system ;-)

comment What do Evangelical Protestants say about sanctification?
Very well done. If all answers on this site utilized this sort of documentary approach to answering questions everything would run a lot smoother! I tweaked a few things, but they are pretty minor and feel free to adjust again.

revised What do Evangelical Protestants say about sanctification?
nitpicks: Westmister can refer to several documents, not just the WCF, so specify; clean up the law/gospel issue to not imply that its just semantic differences; SBC may not be the actual broadest representative but they are the largest cohesive group (non-denoms being harder to pin down)

comment What is the Catholic explanation as to why God has revealed himself in “male” terms?
This sito isn't looking for individuals opinions. Please edit your answer to demonstrate how it is representative of the group questioned, in this case official Catholic teachings.
