comment Why do some Trinitarians ascribe the name “Yahweh” (יַהְוֶה) to the Father, but not the Son or the Holy Spirit?
Can you give us an example of Trinitarians who ascribe 'Yahweh' only to God the Father? It's not common practice, as far as I know.

comment Where does the Bible support the idea of church budgets, for those traditions that think it does?
@OneFace Most churches do not worry about whether there is an explicit mandate for a church budget, and so do not have a 'biblical justification'. That there is no prohibition, on them, and they are a sensible thing to do, then that's enough

comment Are there irreconcilable differences between Acts and the Pauline epistles?
Obviously not, because any differences have been reconciled, at least to the satisfaction of the vast majority of Christians over the last 2000 years

comment Historical evidence for a separate Jewish branch of Christianity?
Are you sure you are understanding this right? Messianic Judaism is a movement that specifically combines the beliefs of Christianity with the practices of Judaism. Most of its adherents do not believe Messianic Judaism is superior to Christianity, but that it is a way for believers of Jewish origin to combine their heritage with their beliefs.

comment Do Protestant Zionists consider Zionist Jews members of the Church?
My understanding is that most Christians believe that The Church has taken the place of Israel in the sense of being God's people, inheriting the promises made to Israel. For those Christians being 'part of 'Israel' (the religious entity, not the state) is the same as being part of The Church. But 'Zionist' Christians don't believe that they are the same, so a Zionist Jew can be a member of 'Israel' (the religious entity), and thus receive the promises made to Israel, without being part of The Church. But I may be wrong.

comment Do Protestant Zionists consider Zionist Jews members of the Church?
Your main issue here is that 'Zionist' Christians don't believe that the Church is Israel. So your premise is faulty.

comment What are the theological reasons some Protestants are Zionists?
To be fair the vast majority of Protestants are not Zionists, even in the US. Sometimes it just seems like it.

comment Does the Bible ever mention class systems?
Hi tox123. Thanks for deciding to contribute. However this reads like a discussion question, which isn't really a good fit for this site. If you haven't done so, please have a look at The Tour which explains more about how the site works. If you wanted to restrict your question to "Does the Bible say anything about class hierarchy' that would probably be on topic.

comment How old was Moses when he parted the Red Sea and how old was he when he wrote the ten commandments
I don't believe Moses non-existence is generally accepted even within academia.
