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.

@Flimzy: Thanks for the feedback. I'll noodle on it some more.

comment Why did God make garments of skin for Adam and Eve when they had already made clothing for themselves?
Hi Geoff and welcome to our Christianity Q&A site. That sound like the core of an interesting answer. However, I'd like to know a bit more about how your pastor makes his points. Maybe you can summarize the sermon?

comment Do we know there are only three persons in the “Trinity”?
@Flimzy: The idea is that functionally there are three roles, so adding another person would mean they would have nothing to do, which seems wrong. I probably need to make the points more clearly in the answer: 1) there are three roles in the process of redemption, 2) the Trinity fills those roles already, and 3) no new roles are possible.

comment Are the early followers of Christ considered Christians or Jews in today's context? If not, when was the religion created?
@Dan Andrews: The date of the book of Acts is largely irrelevant. The events described in chapter 11 are from a few years after the crucifixion and well before the destruction of the temple (70 AD).

comment Why is Rome the holy city?
I think the answer has far more to do with History and Politics than it does with theology. It's telling that Constantine called his capital the New Rome and not the New Jerusalem.

comment What is the basis for the claim that the entire New Testament can be reconstructed apart from original and copied manuscripts?
FYI: This question, which is about the writings of the early church fathers, wouldn't fly on Biblical Hermeneutics. However, a similar question asking about textual criticism in general (i.e., how quoted texts inform us of textual variations) would be ontopic there.

comment What is the basis of the view that Jesus was separated from the Father and Holy Spirit upon death?
@svidgen: I should point out that Nestorius rejected the title "Mother of God" because he believed that Jesus' divinity could (and at times, must) be separated from His humanity. The heresy is a slippery little bugger, so it's not surprising that we lapse into it when we aren't on guard for it.
