I am a C# Software Engineer and Architect, and have been developing on the .NET and Microsoft platform for most of my career. I am a huge fan of C#, I love DDD (Domain Driven Design), and am a fledgling advocate of BDD (Behavior Driven Development.) My favorite technical authors are Martin Fowler, Eric Evans, and Thomas Erl.

comment Does wine really mean wine in the Bible?
@RCIX: Sure, there are definitely health benefits to drinking a glass of one every day or two...its loaded with antioxidants. Not that they would have really known that scientifically back then like we do today... I just wanted to point out that there was a fundamental health benefit to drinking fermented alcoholic drinks, given the far more limited ability to purify water 2000+ years ago.

comment What does the bible say about homosexuality?
@Jurgen: In comparison to a paraphrased bible, in which content is purposely excluded, or an enriched bible, where content is literally fabricated (a dangerous practice for translating any text), translations such as NKJV, ESV, NASB, etc. ARE highly accurate. In regards to interpretation, yes, some has to be done, however in relation to the original language texts, the translations are as accurate as they can be given the fluid and ambiguous nature of language in general. Perhaps including the term 'relative' is necessary, but there are differences in the degree of accuracy in bibles.

comment What is the specific meaning of “day” in Genesis 1?
I also disagree, Flimzy. The bible is to be taken IN CONTEXT, context within itself, the context within which it was written, the context of original language it was written in, etc. Taken OUT of context, Genesis 1 can mean anything the reader wants it to mean, given their own personal views. Taken in context, even just in the context of the bible itself comparing the same word (yowm/yom) used in Exodus as in Genesis, and the fact that they are both authored by the same man, gives significant weight to a specific meaning of the word.

comment What does the bible say about homosexuality?
Out of curiosity, what bible was the preacher using? There are many bible translations, some of them are considered highly accurate, while others are paraphrased and/or enriched. I've heard some preachers using paraphrased and enriched bibles myself, and the experiences left me quite confused until I had a chance to read my own bibles (ESV, NKJV, NASB) and consult with my pastor. I think its very important to know what bible a preacher/pastor/priest teaches from.

comment 1 John Chapter 1 & 3 - Is there an apparent contradiction?
Thanks! I'll check it out. I'm very scientific at heart, and I am always looking for ways to improve my understanding of things...including the Bible. That bible certainly looks intriguing. The Greek Lexicon you linked in your answer is useful as well.
