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.

@FMS Not cool. Please don't do that trick with comments again, either on my posts or anyone else's. If they choose to respond great, if not leave them alone. If you want to carry on a conversation, catch people in chat.

comment How do Seventh Day Adventists interpret Romans 14:5?
@Zenon Please read the whole answer. The bit about the 4th commandment appears to be given as background leading into the context in which SDA interprets your Romans passage. As far as I can tell this does in fact answer the question from the requested perspective as this site expects.

comment What happens to a human after he dies according to Catholicism?
laovultai (and @JayarathinaMadharasan) I fixed the link above. The Area 51 page where the site was proposed isn't the best place to send people as the site is active in beta. You can link to it using [hinduism.se] in comments: Hinduism.

comment Are there any scholars or doctrinal schools that address the conspicuous dearth of needy people in Jesus' sayings and stories?
Well it is not (and the better for it). That being noted, you should always assume all questions on this site need to be treated with a documentary attitude. This post for example reads much more like a theologian making a case for a doctrine (not appropriate for this site) than it does a journalist or historian noting what doctrinal statements exist covering the issue (what this site is about).

comment Who was the last valid pope according to the founders of various Protestant sects?
It's unclear to me what you are asking here. Protestants typically don't recognize apostolic succession at all, so what a "valid" Pope would be to a Protestant is something you should define in order to make your question clear.

comment Are there any scholars or doctrinal schools that address the conspicuous dearth of needy people in Jesus' sayings and stories?
This question specifically asks for what scholarly approaches have been taken is studying this issue. The assertion that the poor are typically more righteous is both highly debatable and unsupported in your answer. The question of whether this is a typical scholarly approach to this issue is left completely untouched by this answer.

comment Are there any denominations that reject Mary's virgin conception of Jesus?
Thanks for addressing the issues previously raised on this post, but now there is a new one: The article you have used as a "reference" does not appear to have anything whatsoever to do with the Virgin Birth or any denomination's belief on that issue.

comment What is the biblical basis that people who are attracted to the same sex were not created by God that way?
@Hello and \@FMS. Comments are not the place to carry on theological discussions or debate issues. They should be reserved for requests for clarification or suggestions on improving the posts they are made under. Please refrain from using them for discussing thological issues.

comment What is the Biblical basis that through the covenants God has promised to bless his people materially?
@Hello If you disagree about the tags you may raise the concern on Christianity Meta. You may not just keep adding the tag back. After being asked not to do so three times now you've gone and done it again so I'm now locking this post from all edits. If you want a different outcome and don't agree with the way it is, ask about it on meta!
