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 exegesis do Lutherans perform to explain the basis for their theology of “Two Kinds of Righteousness”?
This is a great question topically but the post itself could use some help. Linking to the PDF is great, but at least enough context to present the gist of the question should be cited in the post itself.

comment How does the Jehovah's Witness denomination deal with the filial piety among its East Asian believers?
This doesn't seem to answer the question that was asked, nor is it apparent (except perhaps from your use of the word Jehovah) that this represents a JW perspective. Can you edit this to make it explicit how JW groups actually deal with this issue on the ground?

Hey @JimG. lets not go the ad hominem route here. If you want to weigh in on a discussion of the suitability of this question for the site and how it should be handled do so with an answer here on meta but a personal attack on a commenter that criticized the post is not okay.

comment Was baptism practiced before Christ?
It looks to me like this is a duplicate post with your previous answer. I've gone ahead and deleted the other one in favor of leaving this one because it looks like you've setup this account farther than the other one so it should be easier to use going forward.

comment How was slavery in the U.S. justified by Christianity?
It seems to me that the actual question you asked here is fine for this site but the one you meant to ask is not. How that happened I don't know, but you seem to be actually looking for something other than what you asked. This site doesn't deal in "true Christianity" would do or believe, but what specific groups at specific times did or believed is very much on topic. Do you want to run with the question as asked that would be appropriate on this site?

comment How was slavery in the U.S. justified by Christianity?
@Bye I think I see some miss-understandnig about this site in your last comment. Remember questions on this site are not looking for truth, nor are answers expected to represent the most logical reading of Scripture. The question as you asked it (whether you meant to or not, it was worded properly for this site) is what Scriptures were used by a specific group of people to justify a cause. Whether their use of Scripture was appropriate or not, whether it makes sense or not, should not factor in at all. The question is: does this accurately represent what those Christians thought and did?

comment How was slavery in the U.S. justified by Christianity?
Mod notice: Comments are not for debating slavery or American history, much less ISIS and the Middle East. Ya'll got way off track there. I've stripped the comments down to just the ones that deal with the the post itself. That's what comments are for: suggest improvements, ask for clarification or provide other post feedback. Save the discussion of the topical matter for another venue.

comment Is there biblical evidence of seraphims being angels?
The Luke passage you quote does not appear to establish anything at all relevant to the question asked. The rest of this is no more than annecdotal as the question is specifically asking if Christians believe there is Biblical evidence for a connection, not for your experiences.
