I'm a born-again Christian, active member of the body of Christ, husband and father, and Bible teacher. I love to study Scripture, and firmly believe it is the only credible standard for truth.

Aside from my devotion to God, His people, and His word, I don't really have any loyalty to a particular doctrine or creed.

comment What is the difference between humans as “image of God” and Jesus as “image of God”?
@H3br3wHamm3r81 Yeah, though the English translation says "is" there, the Greek is more interesting, and (at first glance anyway) seems to confirm this answer.

comment According to Mormonism, how does a person get saved?
You're not familiar with the different levels of heaven in Mormon theology by which apostate (i.e. non-Mormon) Christians find themselves in a lower eternal standing than true Mormons, etc.?

"Salvation" may be an ambiguous term in Mormon circles, but I did specify in my question that I was using the term specifically to refer to being qualified to enter the "third heaven", which is a well defined term in Mormon theology, correct?

So you're saying the only distinctively Mormon thing about Mormon salvation is that Mormons have to be the ones to baptize you?

comment According to Mormonism, how does a person get saved?
This answer seems rather vague... what are these "necessary saving ordinances"? The way the answer is currently worded it sounds more Evangelical than Mormon.

This answer seems to suggest that all Christians will end up in the "third heaven", which I'm fairly certain is an incorrect representation of Mormon doctrine. Care to clarify?

@DavidStratton I did look at that question, and I skimmed the accepted answer. There didn't appear to me to be very much overlap between that one and this one. (That question was more about the big-picture "plan of salvation".)

Which Easter? :-) When you get a chance, I'm still looking forward to your response to this issue.

comment Why does Isaiah not mention himself after chapter 39?
Excellent assessment, though I do wonder if perhaps part of the debate stems from a failure to distinguish between the original prophecies and the subsequent inscripturation(s). Could it be that the prophecies were all originally spoken by Isaiah, while the authoring of the canonical book happened in stages by 2 or 3 different authors (or at least, amanuenses)?

comment Was Esau's Birthright also a physical token?
If the answer is "no", it might be difficult to prove.

comment What's the Biblical basis for “all Christians will be together in heaven some day”?
Hmmm... still seems like a bit of a stretch. I mean, the verse doesn't say they go to "heaven".

@Beestocks The "all" is indeed important to my question, yes.

comment From a reformed theology perspective, is there any Biblical argument against having a concubine?
@curiousdannii Reformed is not equivalent to Calvinist; Calvinism is only one characteristic of one aspect of Reformed theology. I think the idea the OP was alluding to is that Reformed theology is known for being Bible-centered, hence the tone of the question.
