I'm a UX/product designer and front-end developer at GitHub.

I make Dev Tees in my spare time, and hack on HospitalRun (an open source EMR), and volunteer with CURE International.

I hail from Mechanicsburg, PA. You should say hello.

comment When did the idea start that divine revelation is “finished”?
To use that particular verse as proof that Scriptural revelation finished with the Apostles seems like a lot to infer from those words. I mean it plainly says God spoke to us through His Son, but doesn't plainly say "after the Apostles write the Son's words, there will be no more revelation, or other people inspired by the Son to write revelation."

comment According to the Bible, does sin give Satan 'Legal Access' to your life in any sense?
This is also a popular teaching by modern Charismatic excorists like Bob Larson.

comment What is the history of the concept of a “personal relationship with Jesus”?
Okay, I completely agree with you about the community aspect. I'm not sure that you can separate the individual aspect, but certainly agree that it is intended to be fulfilled within community. If you mean that there is modern idea of individuality APART from community, I could see that too, sure.

Also, how can you claim the statement in John 14:23-26 is not individual, when he clearly uses the word "anyone"? I think you are making a distinction between communal and individual that may not exist.

but by definition, a Church, or a community, is comprised of individuals...

My New Testamant professor in college always explained koinonia to be literally, "having a share, giving a share", implying a direct, one on one, mutual interaction.
