comment Is there any biblical support for copyright law?
Thank you, but I can't understand why Luke 10 is foundation for copyright. Preaching and healing is a real work, and sure it should be paid. Musician is working when he actually playing music, and then I'm ready to pay for a tickets. But I can't see there foundation for intellectual property. Besides, Matthew 10:8:"freely ye have received, freely give"

@iterationx, that's fine, making mistakes is in human nature.

comment Is there any biblical support for copyright law?
Thank you. If work is done once, shouldn't it be payed once? Yes, I think copyright is greedy, since it was created to make money not from owner's work, but from consumer's feelings. And I want to know will that be a sin to fight a copyright law. What do you mean by "Christians are bound by copyright laws. See Romans 13:1-2."?

comment What is the official Roman Catholic opinion on Swedenborg?
Thank you, your argument about marriage is serious. But "marry" or "be given in marriage" is not the same as already "be in marriage". Also he wrote "married pair in heaven are not called two, but one angel". But in the same time he wrote that "angels therefore are of both sexes" and that is really strange. I'm not sure about a source, but I have read that angels have a spiritual nature, thus they are asexual.

Not sure. In this example recorded song is a result of work they did, but not the work itself. It is the work of consumers fantasy to make use out of this song (ex. to feel happy).

comment Is there any biblical support for copyright law?
Thank you. I think it's right, that artists or authors should be supported by community, and it is possible in different ways - by having grants, by selling tickets on performances, by having donations from their fans. This may be not enough to be a multimillionaire, but may be enough to live and create freely. If work is done once - shouldn't it be paid once?

Copyright is not the same as authorship! I can understand that gift is a property of a person, but why a fruit of a gift, information, is a property also? One example, person A has a gift of healing, person B is sick, person A heals person B - now a good health of person B is a fruit of gift of person A. Would it be a property of person A also? No.

comment Is there any biblical support for copyright law?
Thank you. That's what I'm trying to find out - why information is recognized as a property? So, the point is, there should be no copyright within Christians? Since Paul is talking only about Church and only about a gifts of Holy Spirit, can we apply analogy?

comment Source of Christian attitudes towards fantasy and role playing games
@Flimzy you may be right but my answer is more about fantasy culture in common than about RPG's, which may be very sophisticated, as like D&D or may be a parody as like Munchkin (which is really fun and not pretend to be real).

@Caleb you right, I should explain my opinion in other words. See last edit.

comment How should Christians meditate?
In your answer, the part about Christian meditation is correct, but it's really important to make a strong distinct between Eastern meditation and Christian meditation practices, since they are absolutely incompatible. Eastern meditation is prohibited by Church.
