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.

revised Did Calvinism borrow its scheme of predestination from Valentinian Gnosticism?

If you have a question, please post it as a question. I am removing that part of this post as it is not an answer, and also cleaning up the punctuation and capitalization in the what is left. Please take more care on this site. Thanks.

revised What is the meaning of 'I desire mercy and not sacrifice'?
removed two parapraphs: the first because it is totally inapropriate to preach at or deride other users of the site and the other because it was a bout a verse that was not part of the question nor did show it was connected to the subject of the question
