comment Do Christians have secret handshakes?
Thanks. I appreciate the directness and the link. Don't be afraid to simply say, "This comes from a movie in the 50's". It'd save us both alot of time.

comment Do Christians believe in Ethical Relativism, in other words, that good and bad are determined by culture, society, tradtions, etc?
I believe I answered the moral relativism question with the Matthew 5:18 verse. As for the other things you're unsure about, those things don't seem to be wholly relevant to the question at all, at least not in the way the OP framed it. For example whether or not the law can be arrived at outside the scriptures is a different question entirely. He asked about relativism, and assumed points in his question that needed to be addressed. He didn't ask whether somebody could come to godly conclusions independent of the scripture. That's a different question.

This goes with my point. Bickering about the details of the moral law isn't productive. The point isn't what it is or isn't as much as it is that we've broken it.

I didn't say that the law, as revealed in Scripture, is comprehensive in scope. Simply that it is enough of a law for each person to determine that he or she is a lawbreaker and in need of salvation. If it has done this, it has served it's purpose. In that view, the scope and breadth of the Law is, I would hope you would agree, enough to accomplish it's intended purpose. That being said, Deuteronomy 4:2 would indicate that the law, in it's current form, is enough.

comment Is there a good overview of Christian denominations/churches and their mapping between countries
I think this question is too broad for this site. You're asking for a overview that would essentially give you the entire history of the church. I'm not sure that there's any volume that can give you a thorough understanding of the differences between all the denominations out there, save for a multi-volume set like this: christianbook.com/history-of-the-christian-church-volumes/…

It's also worth nothing, that, if the story were true, it probably woundn't be documented, so the answer to the question, more than likely, is, nobody knows.

You might want to try asking questions that don't assume facts. "Do you have any sources?" may be a good alternative way to ask the question without being argumentative. That being said, I looked it up, and I can't immediately find any evidence, so you may actually be right in your sideways statement disguised as a question.

I'd have to agree. I'm not sure that this is a duplicate either.

Good point. I failed to mention that in my original post, but very worth noting.
