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 does being Born Again mean per Catholic teaching?
If your views are relevant anywhere on this site it would be under question specifically about whatever group you actually currently represent, whether that is a reform movement inside Catholicism or whatever. Answering Catholicism questions in fine as long as you do so from the current established and referenceable teachings (whether you think these are right or wrong). If what you believe is right or true is in any way in variance with current Catholic dogma and practice, then you must identify what position you are representing for your answers to be valid.

comment What does being Born Again mean per Catholic teaching?
Re this statement: "This is as Catholic as it Gets, because it is the truth." However valid this sentiment may or may not be in the context of the church, it is baloney in the context of this site. On this site "Catholic" refers to the current documented beliefs of the Roman Catholic church. Historical Catholic positions need to be delineated as such and neither any argument solely from the truth of Scripture nor your view an what it should be has any relevance at all. Please STOP trying to pawn off your personal views as "true Catholicism".

comment In the parable of the sower, what exegetical reasons are there to interpret the third type of soil to be genuine Christians?
You say "to me it seems", then go on to explain a position that most Christian's I've ever heard of would disagree with. Can you explain what Christian group(s) hold this view and hence in what way this answer is representative of Christianity rather than just your personal opinion?
