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 Are Christians required to believe the teachings of their own denomination?
In general, try to make your answers stand-along even if it means repeating somebody elses argument at least in summary. If you do reference, linking is a good idea because people might not have observed other usernames and know what you are talking about. Also formatted for clarity.

This question isn't really about Charismatics, Baptists or Catholics. Since it isn't about anybody, it might not be on topic at all, but at any rate these tags don't belong.

revised Atheism is the default position. Isn't the burden of proof on the Christian to assert that God exists?
Tweaked wording to more clearly show how I think this is an on-topic question.
