comment Is there a significance of the “Christian name”?
@Anonymous In the sense of restrictions placed by the Church of England on what names a baby can be given at baptism, I'm pretty sure that they are few. Babies have certainly been baptized with foreign names in the CofE.

comment Is there a significance of the “Christian name”?
@Anonymous Absolutely not. In the sense of being a synonym of 'first name', foreign first names might well have been referered to like that, especially if someone was baptized in a foreign country (and possibly even if not). Several decades ago someone might have referred to a person whose 'Christian name was Muhammed' (if they weren't really thinking about it).

@TheFreemason I think you just Godwined this question.

comment Why are bibles sold for profit?
Are you sure that Bibles are sold at a profit, rather than simply being sold at a price that covers their costs?

@Narnian Maybe chatting about this would be better than arguing in comments. Feel free to start a chat.

This is only a tiny part of the arguments used by YEC i favour of their viewpoint.

comment What scientific arguments are there to support Young Earth Creationism?
@Narnian Yes, that would be ridiculous and biased AND I DID NOT SAY IT. What I did was to state the view of most Christians and the vast majority of scientists. And frankly I object to you making false claims about what I said. If you want to back up your assertion, please point to the part of my answer where I call anyone stupid. You are a high-rep user, and I find it disappointing that you make baseless accusations against another contributor.

comment Why do some Protestants divide the Blood of Christ into individual cups?
It's 'unscriptural' only in the same sense that wearing pants is unscriptural - i.e. they tended not to do it two thousand years ago.

comment In any of James's passages, does he agree to the law being cursed and abrogated?
No, James is pointing out to people who think they have been 'pretty good' at keeping the law, that unless they have kept every single part of it (which nobody has) then they are still lawbreakers and needing forgiveness.
