Stack Exchange employs me as a Community Manager. I've been known to respond to jericson@stackexchange.com.

You can read about what I've done over the years in my curriculum vitae.

On a personal note, I'm married and have three children. Our oldest son loves school, friends, games, and reading. (He can't wait to get on our LEGO® Answers site, but he's not quite old enough. My posts there are usually at his request.) Two of my children happen to have been born on the same day. I sometimes write about that experience.

Don't have time for a full review of something? Why not try my 5-second reviews?

Occasionally, I write a post for Eschewmenical.

comment Does George Muller have biblical basis on not accepting illegitimate orphans?
Interesting. However, I wonder why you are asking for his biblical reasons. Perhaps he had socio-economic reasons? If the answer turns out to be practical or non-biblical how should one answer?

comment What does messiah literally mean in the Bible?
You might consider asking about this passage: "And Jesus went on with his disciples to the villages of Caesarea Philippi. And on the way he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” And they told him, “John the Baptist; and others say, Elijah; and others, one of the prophets.” And he asked them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered him, “You are the Christ.” And he strictly charged them to tell no one about him." (Mark 8:27-30 ESV)

comment What does messiah literally mean in the Bible?
That's not context. The Bible is a bunch of books collected in one place. Many of the books have different authors. Each author uses language in unique ways. Even within a book, words are used differently. Context can be as little as a few words.

comment What should I expect at a Roman Catholic funeral?
I'm reminded of something I heard while helping out with my son's Sunday School class yesterday: trials are a gift from God. I can't imagine what it would be like to lose a brother at that age.

comment What should I expect at a Roman Catholic funeral?
Do you happen to have a link to the text of the funerary mass? Is there a homily? When or where would a eulogy be appropriate? (Thank you for the answer. You got my +1 already, but I think a little more information could make this even more useful.)

comment What does messiah literally mean in the Bible?
You're going to have to be a heck of alot more specific. Messiah is a technical term that means different things in different contexts. So this question is a bit like asking what "good morning" means.

@NotMyWill-butGodsWillBedone: You did ask on Christianity. It shouldn't surprise you to get the Christian answer. If you asked a related question on one of the other religion sites, I'm sure you'd get a different answer. (By the way, you answered your own question in the question. Were you just looking for references?)

comment To what extent can you be forgiven?
Could you point to your source for this? Ideally, an answer from a Catholic perspective will point to the relevant catechism, papal encyclical or the like.

comment When, if ever, is eisegesis a valid interpretation of scripture over exegesis?
Hear, hear! This is a wonderful, well-balanced, and helpful answer. One of the most popular hermeneutical methods used by Christian preachers (the Christological approach) is eisegesis par excellence.
