comment Does swearing on the Bible have any spiritual significance?
That's what I'm talking about. What are we to do when the oaths we are forced to swear aren't biblical? It seems to be that we have 2 options: 1) Honor the unbiblical oath we are forced to make, which means doing the unbiblical actions sworn. 2) Dishonor the unbiblical oath we are forced to make, which means we violate the command, but which also means we don't have to do unbiblical actions sworn. Which then should a Christian choose?

How does this reconcile with the fact that to join a military, someone first has to do the oath "swear loyalty to country, officers, etc, etc"? Are Christians not to join military because of that oath requirement?

comment What are the different names of God in the Bible and what do they mean?
@daviesgeek, Isn't Elohim an epithet meaning "mighty"? As such, why do you say "Elohim" means "God" in the first paragraph?

comment Are intentional sins somehow “worse?”
@warren, Your first comment is claiming ~"sins are equal in terms of wages earned, but sins are not equal". Your second-last comment is claiming ~"all sins have equal value and eqaul degree". Which begs the question: "How can sins be equal in terms of value, in terms of degree, and in terms of wages earned, yet be non-equal? Which aspect is different?". And the follow up to that question is (quoting myself above): "How can God give equal punishment to non-equal sins and still be considered just?"

Also, Deuteronomy 18-21.

comment Are intentional sins somehow “worse?”
@warren, If they are all of the same "degree" or "value", then doesn't it contradict the first paragraph of this answer? The answer is saying that all sins are not equal, but ur comment is the exact opposite of that. So are all sins equal?

@warren, Regarding your comment "all sins are equal, however, in terms of the wages earned", If we assume God to be just, then isn't the comment an oxymoron? How can God give equal punishment to non-equal sins and still be considered "just"?

comment Does the Bible itself give us clues about which parts to interpret literally and which figuratively?
@Johnathon, ......................So without the luxury of context, How should they know to interpret my statement literally or figuratively?

comment Does the Bible itself give us clues about which parts to interpret literally and which figuratively?
@Jonathon, Pertaining to your post, How do you reconcile this with lost of context? For example, I'm not lying when I say "this webpage takes forever to load". People in this age will never interpret that literally. However, now is AD 9999. So, 8000 years has past and during this duration, much context has been lost. People don't even have a computer in their museum, let alone hear of a "webpage". In fact, they don't even know what "forever" means since new words that are less-ambiguous have been invented, and re-invented, and re-invented......................

comment How do you know if you are under a trial or if you are just suffering?
@Narnian, Are there any biblical support for the claim "the pain continues until the person stops sinning"?

comment Does yearning to know more about God for a stronger relationship leave us hanging in confusion?
@ryan, Do you mind elaborating on what do you mean by "ask in faith"?

comment If Adam and Eve were perfect, why did they choose to sin?
@Richard, The axiom of this question seems to be "Adam and Eve were as perfect as God". However, that seems to be controversial; it may help if bible verses are included showing how the axiom of the question was derived.

comment If Adam and Eve were perfect, why did they choose to sin?
@jchaffee, This question isn't asking about whether they are good or not. It's asking about all-good (perfectness). Are they perfect (all-good)? Or are they imperfect (not all-good)?

comment Why does the Messiah have to be God?
But if we have 1000 (people) multiply by infinity (payment), the result is still only infinity isn't it?

comment Is repentance required for salvation?
gotquestions.org/repentance.html states "To repent, in relation to salvation, is to change your mind in regard to Jesus Christ". This seems to be totally different from what you posted. Do you agree with that page? If so, how does this post reconcile with that?
