comment Do most Christian scientists have a Literal Creationist viewpoint?
This question is interesting, but of little consequence. There are great scientists on all sides of this debate, because a person's beliefs about the distant past have almost zero impact on how they do science in the laboratory. Furthermore, most scientists get their scientific "evidence" on this topic from other fields of science, not their own (because actual science has little to say about the topic.)

comment What is the difference between humans as “image of God” and Jesus as “image of God”?
@H3br3wHamm3r81 I was referring to the other possible renditions of that Greek word. I think Paul's argument requires a present (not past) focus. Anyway, it was an interesting choice of verbiage, as Paul did not say "is" or "was".

@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.?

comment According to Mormonism, how does a person get saved?
"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?

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".
