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 How did `git pull` eat my homework?
The forced push rebased the last handful of commits. That wasn't what I pulled down (the working directory is no longer a working directory!) and even if it was re-cloning wouldn't make any sense.

revised In what way was my question about some Catholics and labels too broad and how could it be fixed?
this is meta, not main; your post is available for review on main, it is not necessary or helpuful to clutter this post with a duplicate copy

revised What is the meaning of 'I desire mercy and not sacrifice'?
removed two parapraphs: the first because it is totally inapropriate to preach at or deride other users of the site and the other because it was a bout a verse that was not part of the question nor did show it was connected to the subject of the question

"also hear from" is not a good plan for question scope here

comment Spending God's Money
Hello steve and thank you for your question. The mission of our site is to answer factual questions about Christianity, particularly the doctrines and practices of specific groups. We are not able to answer more personal questions, general ones without a theological tradition for scope or those requiring a judgment call on a matter of faith. We invite you to consult your local church leaders, or other trustworthy counselors in your decision making process.

comment Will the return of Christ (Second Coming) be literal or symbolic?
@user2479 The OP's intent seems pretty clear. It might be a good question, but it's off topic for this site. It's not about a textual issue, it's looking for a doctrinal position. This site isn't about presenting doctrinal positions (even with textual support). We only handle things the other way around.

comment For Catholics who object to Vatican II, what are the key issues?
@FMShyanguya Comments are ephemeral second class citizens on the SE network, you should never expect them to stick around. Also they should stick to issues with a given post, either asking for clarifications or suggesting improvements. The chit-chat should be saved for [chat] and discussion of the site itself should be done on [meta]. Most of the removed comments here were removed because they were discussing issues, not the question itself. A few more were either obsolete, too chatty, or meta content that readers of this question/answer page do not need to be subjected to.
