I'm a hobbyist programmer, part-time sysadmin, and full-time data center management, automation, and cloud computing architect and delivery engineer.

I have experience with myriad editors, shells, and OSes. While I have my [strong] preferences, am pretty much beyond the religious wars of "what's best" when it comes to platform, editor, or toolset: if it works for the problem at hand, and you know it, it's [probably] worthwhile :)

comment What is the biblical argument against baptism by sprinkling/pouring?
@cwallenpoole - wine was also a likely commodity onboard / in the caravan .. but water would be vital for a long trip, too

comment Trichotomous vs Dichotomous views of Man
I agree with @fredsbend - I feel like this is a the start of an excellent answer .. but sans references, is going to be less than helpful

@fredsbend - if there's a better way of wording the closing sentence, I would be happy to see it ... this is the best I could come up with :)

comment Who found whom? After Jesus FINDS Philip, why does Philip tell Nathanael “We have FOUND the One…”?
@Mr.Bultitude - why not provide a different answer? I believe I've answered the question as asked.

comment What is the Baptist justification for anti-confessionalism?
SOME baptists are like this - but by no means ALL. I'd even say that MOST aren't ... but I don't necessarily have any data to back-up that hunch.

comment Why is Ruth's child in the line of Boaz and not Mahlon?
Boaz was not Mahlon's brother - he was a relative of the family (and not even the closest, as the account records), but was the closest who was willing to take the role of kinsman-redeemer

comment What about the story of the “Rich Man and Lazarus” indicates whether it is a parable or not?
it's also important to realize that while there are many "Christians" on this site, it is not a "Christian website" please see this meta post for more information :).

comment Why do Protestants trust what Paul and Luke wrote 100%?
@GregoryMagarshak - it seems your actual issue is with the entirety of the NT. If you believe it's unreliable, then of course you'd think Luke + Paul are unreliable.

comment What about the story of the “Rich Man and Lazarus” indicates whether it is a parable or not?
@fredsbendtheGrinch - funny this got activity after a couple years :) ..it seems that Narnian did give an argument for it being a nonparable, though also answers whether it could be a parable (imho, hence my accepting his answer those many moons ago). What about the question do think should be edited?

comment What about the story of the “Rich Man and Lazarus” indicates whether it is a parable or not?
Welcome to Christianity.SE, Anthony! While I appreciate your answer, as it stands right now, it adds nothing to the existing (and accepted) answer on this question. Please consider how you can improve this answer to add to the site, rather than merely leaving a [poor] summary of the previous answer. Stack Exchange sites are different from other places, and taking the time to learn how we're different will benefit not only yourself, but the community.

who said it was "successful"? God knows everything - and sometimes asks questions to achieve a purpose.

comment Can music keeps us away from sin?
Listening to music as an alternative to some specific type of sin? Possible (even probable). As a way of preventing "sinning" in general? Improbable at best, impossible more likely.

comment LDS Church and Genealogy Research (What is the connection?)
I read the wikipedia page, too. And I've been in the data centers where Ancestry.com is run: they're owned and operated by the LDS church. Whether there's a legal distinction of ownership (Permira may "own" the service, but it's hosted and run by LDS) fact remains - it's effectively owned by the LDS church. Permira is based in Provo, just a few miles form the data center where it runs - and that's no coincidence :)

not according to the folks I've met and worked with at the LDS HQ that operate Ancestry.com :)

they haven't "partnered" with Ancestry.com - they own and run it
