comment Why didn't God omit non-essential information from the Bible?
@Flimzy It is usually believed that God didn't expound on the short narratives for the lack of space. If everything was written the entire world wouldn't have the room. But then he could've made some empty space by omitting extraneous information. In that sense the two points are somewhat related.

comment Why didn't God omit non-essential information from the Bible?
@tunmisefashipe So you mean such passages are here because they were written by men? How could it be inspired if men wrote anything they wanted? You'll have to explain what parts were inspired and in what sense.

@Matt That could be made into a good answer. Coz I don't much about any sects that hold these passages important.

comment How did Luther and Calvin view Christian perfectionism?
These quotes are just pure gold. Now I have a new found reverence for Luther.

comment Does any church denomination believe it possible to go one moment without sinning?
@Mike Oh don't worry. These points aren't real currency. Nor am I perfectionist. I just enjoyed putting my thoughts together in clear form and that made it worth it. The same reason I write my diary. So no issues. I'm just argumentative by nature that's why the meta post. :)

comment Where can I find out more about other people rising from the dead, when Jesus died on the Cross?
@MarcGravell Aren't you arguing from ignorance here? We're talking about the 1st century. Sometimes events that transpired in one village couldn't get to the next. The only information preserved was that which made its way into biographies of emperors or writings of philosophers, and that wasn't much. In fact the contemporary documents acknowledge none of the events recorded in the Gospels except the existence of a man named Jesus.

@Flimzy This has me confused a bit so I've created a meta post.

@Flimzy "official doctrine" I'm afraid we're back on the same thing. My view of specificity includes inductive logic and not just appeal to authority. If you have anything against the points made in the answer say so. Otherwise it just looks like an Ad hominem attack.

comment Would the bible draw parallels between the spies returning from Canaan and modern biblical criticism?
What's happening to this community. It seems every interesting question is being closed down.

I don't know why everyone is rushing to close it. Its a good question.

@Flimzy I have to disagree with you that every answer has to represent the official doctrine of some denomination. There's a thing called as non-denominational Christians. And I've learned that they're welcome on the site.

comment Why blame for Jesus's death
@msh210 I think you'll find it hard to put it down as the official stance of any denomination within Christianity. You'll find that line of reasoning in internet forums and violent mobs. But then it's hard to objectively argue against those.

comment Why blame for Jesus's death
@msh210 I'm not sure I understand your doubt clearly to put up a valid answer. Could you substantiate your statement - "why there's been such focus on the intent of the killers". I don't think there has been much focus. Infact any focus there has been is summed up in this statement - Luke 23:33-34 "... there they crucified him ... And Jesus said, 'Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.'"
