The birthdate I entered is farcical, as I prefer not to identify myself in any way online, but the age is in the ballpark.

possible duplicate of What is the Catholic Church's position on the scientific theory of evolution?

comment Was Zwingli the first to preach lectio continua?
@Flimzy Interesting. Another (separate) question then might be at what point this became common in the Catholic church, because when Zwingli first did it it was an aberration from contemporary practice. Also, I'm sure it depends upon what part of the Protestant church one is in; in the churches I have been in (conservative Presbyterian), topical sermons are much less common than expository ones.

@davidbrainerd In what era? By whom?

comment What did Charles Hodge teach about theology as science?
I was hoping you would offer an answer. :) +1 The article that @bruisedreed linked to in the comment above, though, discusses how Hodge approached theology as a science in which you use induction on the data of the Bible---is this an accurate representation? If so, that is hardly in agreement with Owen.

comment What did Charles Hodge teach about theology as science?
@Anonymous---yes, it seems probable; though Owen is also referring to the second definition, and rejecting that.

comment What did Charles Hodge teach about theology as science?
@bruisedreed Thanks, that is informative as to what Hodge taught, and it does seem to be the opposite of what Owen is saying. However, the way Hodge is being criticized today is vastly different than what Owen would say.

comment Justification of Recitation of Creeds in Public Worship according to the Regulative Principle
@frank.s I'm inclined to agree, but nevertheless some churches that seem serious about RPW do it. Surely there is some explanation.

comment Why was Lot “let off the hook” for offering his daughters to be raped?
@Flimzy But that supports my point. The only way he could read a passage like that and call Lot righteous was if he believed in an alien righteousness.

comment Do Jehovah's Witnesses believe the 144 000 are from Israel?
The question is about Jehovah's Witnesses. It is unclear whether your answer addresses that.

comment Humankind divided up among the gods?
I encourage you to revisit your post and clean it up for readability. Rather than asking forgiveness for errors, fix them---no one's angry at you, but it would improve the quality of your post!

comment Will Christians be judged?
This question may have a similar answer as the linked ones, but it is a different question.

comment Can the Holy Spirit take control of a person completely?
Your answer would be strengthened by some exegesis.

comment From a Fundamentalist standpoint, what does the phrase “Inspired, infallible, inerrant Word of God” mean?
I want to second @DavidStratton's comment. I'm not sure what the purpose of the first sentence is; I think the answer would be even stronger without it. I suggest you make an edit. But +1.

comment According to the Bible, what kind of debt, if any, is lawful?
Long answers are only a problem when they are needlessly verbose (which this is not) or when the reader is not interested (which I am!). Otherwise, the detail is great—which is exactly the case in this informative and helpful answer. +1

comment According to the Bible, what kind of debt, if any, is lawful?
@waxeagle What I'm interested in is a defence which explicitly and rigorously appeals to Scripture. I don't want to drill down on a particular denomination; I want it to be open to anyone who wants to take a shot at it.

comment Are Jehovah's Witnesses allowed to marry outside the faith?
Ma'am, the first part of your answer clearly addresses the question, but the rest wanders somewhat. It seems that you may have some knowledge of the subject, however. Could you edit it to be more to the point?

@MasonWheeler Thanks. I didn't know that; that is helpful.

comment Why the resurrection?
@msh210 To confirm what Monika has said, saints is just the Anglicized Latin word for the Greek ἁγίοι, which is קְדֹשִׁים in Hebrew. This is how Paul addresses his letters; it is not denominationally tied! Sorry for using a word that caused confusion—I didn't anticipate that confusion. And if you ask a question on Christian site, you ought to expect the Tanakh to be interpreted Christologically. That is standard procedure.

@MonikaMichael Thank you—exactly.
