comment Why the difference in depiction of the cross between Catholics and Protestants?
Another way to put it is: a lot of people have died for their beliefs (we call them martyrs) but only one has risen.

comment How do we know that the Holy Spirit is God?
@Shredder: I suppose. The original question had the implication that the Trinity is God in 3 persons so this passage makes sense in that context (by lying to 1 person in the Trinity, you are also lying to the whole: God). An analogy could be parents: by lying to your mother you are also lying to your parents.

comment From a biblical perspective, Who performs a miracle - the person or God?
Did you ask this question just so you could answer it? Or did you just find the answer after asking it? Either way, it's a good answer.

comment What happens to people who have never heard about Jesus?
Wow, you analogy is very interesting. The "understanding" part might be challenged with the example of idol worship: the believe a God exists (faith) so they create a golden calf and worship through the idol. They give it a name because they don't know/understand God's name.

comment Why isn't the cross considered an idol?
I would say that the empty tomb is an even better symbol but is much harder to depict.

comment Why does Jesus not want people to repent and be forgiven in Mark 4?
It just told me "You do not have edit privileges. Your edit will be placed in a queue until it is peer reviewed." So how do I know how it was reviewed?

comment Is Christianity with reason wrong?
@MukeTever: Good point. When you reason, you are putting faith in your premises and faith in your conclusion. Not to mention faith in your ability to reason.

Judges Chapter 13 ends at verse 25. I don't see verse 31...

comment What is the message of Matthew 9:5?
@Pacerier: Maybe read the answer again? I think it's pretty clear. Both sentences are easy to just say, but you need to look beyond the act of speaking and look at what Jesus is doing.

comment Why is “elohim” translated as “God” and not “gods”?
@Richard: I think Godhead would make more sense than gods since the plural is usually used to talk about idols. But God works too because God represents three persons: Father, Son, Holy Spirit.

comment Are there other biblical references where angels are disguised as humans?
Ah thanks. I think Judges 13:16 sums it up. And the Angel of the LORD said to Manoah, “Though you detain Me, I will not eat your food. But if you offer a burnt offering, you must offer it to the LORD.” (For Manoah did not know He was the Angel of the LORD.) Is verse 31 a typo?
