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 Do angels possess 1) a body, soul and spirit, 2) a soul and spirit or 3) just a spirit?
I reframed the same question: asking for "if not, any view is ok" is just asking for trouble—everybody with an opinion will chime in even if they are ignorant on what theological tradition their view is associated with. Don't be afraid to write questions that demand expertise to answer!

revised Does God sleep?
this has nothing to do with the formulation of the trinity and is not exegesis; please don't tag just to fill up the available tag slots. Also removed part that would make this a pure opinion/speculation question

moved source from comment to answer; such requests should always be edited into answers rather that replying to comments

revised Did Evil enter the World when Man sinned, or was sin already in the World but man did not know what it was?
was just going to remove the bit about voting at the end as completely irrelevant, then noticed this whole chunk is not actually part of the question at all but more properly an answer (except a personal opinion rather that an attempt to represent some Christian doctrine) so removing that too
