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 Why does God command us to have children?
@Mawia - Genesis 9:1 to start, 'And God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth."' Genesis 9:7, 35:11; Leviticus 26:1-9; Deuteronomy 6:1-3; Psalm 107:33-38; Jeremiah 29:5-7; Hebrews 6:13-14. Some are specific to individuals, others generic commands and/or references to blessing. And this is only a smattering after searching "multiply" in the NASB.

so, as "born again Christians", we are under no obligation to not steal, not murder, not commit adultery, not worship anyone other than God, etc?

comment Why did the KJV translators translate יהוה on the extremely rare occasion as IEHOVAH rather than LORD?
@JanDvorak an argument, as provided that that particular question, is not "conclusive proof".

comment Why did the KJV translators translate יהוה on the extremely rare occasion as IEHOVAH rather than LORD?
@JanDvorak - instead of carrying this on in the comments, it would be better to either ask a question why the Trinity is wrong (eg christianity.stackexchange.com/q/18043/69 or christianity.stackexchange.com/a/2016/69), or let's go elsewhere :)

comment Why did the KJV translators translate יהוה on the extremely rare occasion as IEHOVAH rather than LORD?
@JanDvorak - then you do not understand the Trinity at all :). You're looking at it from a modalistic point of view, which the Bible flatly rejects. God isn't a "group" - He is one, with three Persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit).

comment Why did the KJV translators translate יהוה on the extremely rare occasion as IEHOVAH rather than LORD?
@JanDvorak - "concept of Holy Trinity is ... pretty hard to defend". Not true at all - in fact, defense of a NOT Trinity is far far harder to attempt to defend. See Biblical basis for the doctrine of the Trinity && Is there a hierarchy in the Trinity as some starting points.

comment What does the Bible teach about domestic discipline?
@StevenDoggart - I didn't say they give the husband the inherent right to apply corporal discipline towards his wife. However, given that discipline is a much more encompassing term than mere punishment, and given that as husbands we are responsible for our families, and given that every Christian is responsible to discipline themselves in the Lord, and given that the husband should love his wife as he loves himself, the husband/father is responsible for discipline in the family. This does not mean he may corporally discipline his wife, but it cannot be categorically denied, either.
