I am a scripting language connoisseur, regular expression aficionado, network geek, general lover of Linux and a frequent contributor to open source software. I transitioned to programming from other work because I was too busy automating my own work environment to actually do the other work. I have a hobby interest in cartography. For more see my personal site. Most importantly, my life is defined by the grace of God given to men through Jesus Christ. It is my ambition that everything I do would reflect His glory and point people towards Him.

comment In which theological schools of thought would you classify the messages you can read on Medjugorje websites?
The basic premis of this question would be on topic over on Christianity, but before you ask there please develope the question a bit more. Link to or quote some examples of the material you are referencing and be more explicit about what you mean by "schools of thought"

comment Could the Gospel of Matthew be dependent on Luke's Gospel?
I'm sure the names and facts involved here are relevant, but this answer seems too short on opinion to me. That may seem like an odd complaint, but as someone who is not an expert in this particular issue this answer doesn't help me gain any perspective. Are the scholars mentioned "respected"? Are they in the majority or minority? Is this just a few examples or an exhaustive run-down of the support? Are you able to draw a conclusion to the question title?

comment Are the words “wife” and “woman” the same in Hebrew and Greek?
@JimThio Watch your language man. Throwing around gratuitous terms that don't belong in an academic setting is not allowed here. I edited that one out for you but it will not be tolerated in the future.

comment What is the literal meaning of “royal priesthood” in 1 Peter 2:9?
Compounding the issue of Strong's being the wrong tool to define what a word means, you appear to have referenced at entry that is a known error.

comment What is the literal meaning of “royal priesthood” in 1 Peter 2:9?
You appear to have mistakenly used a concordance rather than a lexicon to define a word. In reviewing the actual usage instances your statement that «"royal" is βασίλειον typically means palace» seems to be unsubstantiated. After that this becomes pretty sketchy as far as hermeneutic process goes. Can you provide something a little more robust to back this up?

comment Were 1 John and John’s gospel written by the same person?
@curiousdannii The for/against split is mainly only necessary on C.SE because we don't have the expertise across multiple theological frameworks to include consistently good arguments from both sides of an issue in single posts. That is much less of a problem for textual analysis questions like this one and we don't generally do that split on this site. In fact we encourage answers to include analysis of all positions and to conclude with whatever one seems most favorable to the author. That model implodes on C.SE but works alright here where "showing work" is a mandatory part of answering.
