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 does it mean for Christ to have been slain before the creation of the world?
The Burning Bush Appearance was [most likely] not a Christophany - it was God [the Father], as He calls Himself "I AM" to Moses, and while Jesus also calls Himself "I AM" when questioned by the Pharisees, that was an identification of Himself as coequal and coexistent with God the Father.

comment Does God create some people Heterosexual and others Homosexual?
@fredsbend perhaps your experience / reading has lead in a different direction, but I haven't heard that as a widespread claim in several years

@fredsbend - I don't think your statement "[a]lmost all think they are" is not very accurate.

comment Tax Deductible Giving, is this unbiblical?
Welcome to the site, Alex. This looks like a great start to a first question - but Christianity.SE is a little different from other sites out there. Please check out the tour to see how we're different :)

comment Are elders needed to have an “ordered” church?
"independent bible studies" are not churches :) .. if they were, no one could ever study on their own or be discipled unless a pastor was there with them.

comment Did Pontius Pilate follow God's Plan?
If it were the case that Pilate was saved merely for carrying out his part of God's plan, then Pharaoh must have been, too - but we know he wasn't.

comment What is Paul referring to in talking about the “thorn in his side”?
I think the "speech impediment" has some good credence based on 2 Cor 10:10 (biblehub.com/2_corinthians/10-10.htm) .. but that's all conjecture :)

comment Do any of the Mormon doctrines that cannot be found in the Bible come from the Book of Mormon?
just a clarification: if Adam and Eve couldn't have children before the Fall, how could God have told them, "be fruitful and multiply"?

@Caleb - I read meta.C.SE relatively often, but since losing beta quasi-admin rights for being a high-rep user, I've found that most questions get answered before I have a chance to say anything :)

I appreciate your opinion - but it does not answer as I expressly specified: ie, there is no scriptural support

comment What is the time difference between Jesus's betrayal by Judas and his crucifixion?
@Narnian - the darkness occurred while Christ was on the cross, but it ended before He died {Mat 27:45-46}
