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 How do Catholics reconcile these verses about giving publicly and yet privately?
There are lots of different views on financial giving and it's relation to other attitudes in Christianity. This is inherently a doctrinal question, but you haven't specified what doctrinal framework you are using or want to learn about. "Christianity" and "The Bible" are too broad categories for questions, you need more scope than that.

Can you edit those last two clarification into your answer and explain what the overlap is (or isn't) between them?

comment For Catholics who object to Vatican II, what are the key issues?
This gives us the label you use for what most people would just call "Roman Catholic", but you don't say how you identify yourselves. Is there a name for this ideology or groups that hold it used either by you internally or by others labeling you?

comment What is the puropse of the other choirs of angels?
Those labels are all used in various places (Corinthians, Colossians, Revelation, etc.) but they don't all refer to angels at all, much less angel choirs. Where did you get that association?

comment Is there biblical basis for the “blood moons”?
This makes some broad generalizations that would mislead a reader unfamiliar with the territory. For example "many Protestants" should really be changed to not that it is specifically dispensationalists that say that and only a subset of Protestant groups are dispensationalist. Many others specifically reject that view (e.g. those with more covenant based theology). The other generalizations are also not supported and the quoted material is not put into context of which Christian views are being represented.

comment Missing verse of the Bible? Acts 8:37
@Zoe "Preferring to use KJV" is not at all the same thing as being "KJV only", so that paragraph obviously does not refer to you or miss-represent your views. It's an explanation of where another (specific) group lies on an issue that is very much relevant to the question. Doing so from the perspective on supporting the NIV is a natural scope for this question. I don't see a problem here.

@Bye I'm aware of all that but it's not really the point of this question or answer.
