comment Why is circumcision not a requirement for Christians?
True faith will produce works as evidence of its existence, but it is the faith, not the works that saves a man. Subtle difference. And faith is not a purely mental assent, but it does carry with it inherent life change.

comment Why is circumcision not a requirement for Christians?
@LeeWoofenden - This is coming from a Reformed perspective mainly. It's clear you're not a huge fan of reformed thinking. I've read some of your website. Is it be fair to say your understanding of a Reformed viewpoint is that it is akin to Gnosticism (faith itself is still faith devoid of works, as opposed to faith producing works?). I would say that faith without works highly suspect, but I would also say that it is not the works but the faith that saves, if that makes sense. If that's the minority report in Christendom, that's fine with me. I believe it to be scriptural.

revised Why are the wicked resurrected only to be destroyed and sent to the Lake of Fire?
Reverting additional comments. The previous answer should have been another new answer, and not an addendum on mine.

comment 2 Chronicles 28:3 vs Genesis 22:2
Perhaps you would like to offer and answer? I see nothing here but the equivalent of, "Nuh-uh!"

comment Is it a valid Christian concept to attribute subjectively attactive physical characteristics, as blessings from God?
Hard to accept, yes, but not untrue. Christ had no form or majesty to attract us to him (Isaiah 53:2), but he achieved the ultimate good in his sacrifice. Beauty is not necessary for sacrificial love. It truly depends on your definition of what it is you're trying to accomplish by working with what you have.
