Once upon a time I worked in a factory to pay for my CS degree. I was promoted several times into engineering and then into engineering management. To switch back to my goal of a computer programming became expensive - upper end engineering salary vs mid level programmer. So I wrote code to automate engineering processes ("Expert System" if you will). Then one day I made an executive decision and made the career change and have been happier but poorer since.

comment How do Pentecostals theologically justifiy when “faithful” snake handlers die?
I'm sorry if I implied that "ALL" Pentecostals have faith in handling snakes. However I didn't see any other group which actually practiced this. @outXast 's answer is right on the money.

You may want to read about Textual Criticism of the New Testament. Most common theories suggest that either one referenced the other or they both referenced a lost gospel, "Q". With that said, your question is better fitting (but still needs reworded) to ask at hermeneutics.stackexchange.com

Just FYI, using BibleGateway you can search the bible for phrases such as "Fruit of the spirit"

Thanks for the tip. That idea did not come to my mind since I'm unfamiliar with this history.

comment What did Jesus say about the end times?
I didn't -1, but this is an ironically apocalyptic view...

You may want to consider adding an explanation of how one can be free willed if they are not selfwilled. Maybe it's a different question in that, "How can you have Freewill when you must subject to the will of God and not be selfwilled?" - highly subjective, however.

Holy wall of text! You could just say, "read the bible". -1 because the percentage of original text / original thought to the quoted text is extremely low.

comment Are Lucifer and Satan different beings?
@caleb I do not see how this is a different argument. I quoted, not stole, giving credit to you - the proper thing to do. My following comment further solidifies your wonderful comment. Continue the good work, my brother in Christ!

comment Are Lucifer and Satan different beings?
Using the logic behind my down voted question, the King James Bible is not English - that is, not how we use English today. Using a different version of the bible, you will not find Lucifer anywhere in it. Using a dictionary for the word lucifer and it's origin would answer your question. It would require research on your part, however. The Christian use of Lucifer comes from a mistranslation, a similar misunderstanding put horns on statues of Moses.

comment Bishops have no free will?
While I understand that selfwilled != freewilled (that is, you cannot use them interchangeably); I assert that if you are selfwilled then you are freewilled. If you do not have selfwill then you are not freewilled. Limiting selfwill limits freewill. Follow here
