How do I read your display name? Exactly as it sounds, of course :P (it says "My name is Dan" in broad, phonemic IPA transcription).

comment What is the difference between the Eastern Orthodox doctrine of deification and the little god doctrine of the Word of Faith movement?
Not even remotely similar. It would take a book to explain the underlying differences between the assumptions inherent in Eastern vs. Western Christianity (I gave it a shot once). The main difference in my mind is that WoF = we become gods with creative power, often the power of spoken words. In Orthodoxy we become God, i.e. partakers of the One Divine Nature, and only He has all power and authority. I'll try to answer if I find time.

comment Why did God want a Tabernacle built by Moses?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is a general reference question / too trivial.
