comment Does the Holy Spirit's procession from the Father and Son infringe on the co-equality of the Trinity?
@bruisedreed Preferably we'd say no more than Scripture says in John 15:25, hence why we omit the Filioque (or rather, why we refuse to add it).

@AndrewLeach in the West yes. But the East is often forgotten in history books.

comment Does the Holy Spirit's procession from the Father and Son infringe on the co-equality of the Trinity?
@curiousdannii to quote my last sentence, because "The procession of the Holy Spirit is now no longer unique to only one Person of the Trinity nor shared by all Persons, thus compromising the co-equality of the Persons of the Trinity."

comment Should non-believers be allowed in church?
My DV is for the inaccurate information in this post re:Eastern Orthodoxy. I commented in March about this and since there's no followup, I'm now DVing since this is inaccurate.

comment Is there an English translation of the Bible that is accepted by most Christians?
My DV is for using 'liberal' (and 'conservative') as it is a subjective term that is virtually meaningless in contexts like this.

comment Were the early Christians an apocalyptic sect?
@metal I'm still not sure what you mean. All post-Reformation Christians (including all Protestants) are Modernists of one form of another. I'm still not sure what category you're trying to capture by the use of the term. Plus you've retained 'conservatives' in relation to it. It seems you're still trying to prop up the liberal vs. conservative distinction, just with a different (albeit equally as unhelpful) term.

A decent answer, but a DV for using 'liberals' as it is a subjective term that is virtually meaningless in contexts like this.
