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 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!

comment What is the gist of CARM's critisizm of Joyce Meyer?
Joyce Meyer is heavily into what is known as the "Word of Faith" movement, the teachings of which are quite different from mainstream Christian teachings which CARM defends. I answered a similar question with some information that might be helpful to you in sorting out the positions.

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.
