comment Verse that mention Jesus eating meat?
I'm reading into the original post but if the underlying question is "should Christians eat meat?" then consider Romans 14.

comment Where did Noah find polar bears and penguins in Palestine?
If the people on this site were to accept the answer that "God can do anything at any time. Why bother questioning it?", this whole site would be irrelevant. Every answer for every question, "Because God says so."

comment Is there a Biblical basis for believing someone can be saved after dying and going to Hell?
This is not the question. It is a good line of thought and inquiry, but deviations from the original question like you are doing is not a good fit for this Q&A format.

The physics answer is MUCH more interesting!

comment Why is there a difference between Mark 10:29-30 and Matthew 19:28-29?
It is also a good idea to read other bible translations. Doing so can point out different phrases that may not necessarily stand out in just one translation.

Hmm... trying to rescue this question. Just updated it with a different question in the last paragraph.

Trying to further localize the question, easing up on the Protestant requirement.

comment Relativism and salvation
I think you're misunderstanding my motivation. I'm not trying to mete out judgement. I know people like the Christian in my question and I am confused about it. If these individuals are so far errant that they aren't going to make it into heaven, then shouldn't I make an effort to gently and compassionately lead them to the truth? On the other hand, if its not a problem then I can let it slide. I dont know where to stand. Hence the question.

Added stronger requirements for protestantism.... very begrudgingly... after reading some threads about this topic on the meta :(

Also, I suspect that though there may be differing opinions among the different camps, there really are only two positions, "Damn him!" or "He's cool", with only subtle shades of reasoning within each.

comment Relativism and salvation
I have gotten similar responses to my other questions before and I have to say that they are always a little frustrating. I don't want to narrow it down so much because I am interested in all perspectives. Why should I intentionally exclude any scholars or traditions if they have well-thought-out opinion?

Thanks Matt. That clears it up for me.
