comment When should Water Baptism be done on a candidate?
I'm pretty sure it's right after the potluck and right before the softball game during the annual church picnic. Isn't that in your copy of the scriptures?

comment Confessional Lutheranism: How does Unlimited Atonement work?
I've upvoted. I'm not inclined to accept this as an answer, as it is not from a Confessional Lutheran perspective.

comment Lutheranism, Has God ordained all things?
If you edit your answer to incorporate what you found on the bookofconcord page and can address the last sentence of my question in a good fashion, I'll upvote.

comment Confessional Lutheranism: How does Unlimited Atonement work?
Thanks. Could you cite Luther on this to back your point up? I'd like to see his thought process on this, even if it is just a defense of why one shouldn't think too hard beyond what the scriptures say.

comment Calvinism: How does Limited Atonement Work in View of the Universality of Christ's Work?
Hi. I understand Limited Atonement in the way you've described, sufficiency vs. efficiency. However, neither proponents nor opponents of Limited Atonement disagree with your statements. Your's is not an explanation of how Limited Atonement works in a Calvinistic framework but rather the definition of Limited Atonement. It doesn't get at what I'm after.

comment Lutheranism, Has God ordained all things?
Hi. Your answer is well-written and is interesting for me personally to read, but it doesn't quite answer what I'm asking for. Could you quote something from Confessional Lutheranism that would be in agreement with these points in the WCF? Were there any Lutheran "patriarchs" opposed to such an understanding?

comment Is there biblical basis for the claim that Pilate had no choice?
Acts 4:10, addressed to Israel, says that they Crucified Christ, so this much is biblical. It's not a matter of "blame." Secondly, you have faulty logic. The fact that the Jews were culpable doesn't mean that the Romans weren't. Thirdly, I'm not aware of any mainstream sect (liberal or conservative) who blame Jews other than to state a fact, that by their actions he was delivered to the Romans. Fourthly, if such a sect does exist, this is pretty meaningless (bad apples in a whole bunch). Fifth and most important, this line of questioning misses the entire point of the crucifixion.
