comment Do the Persons of the Trinity need each other?
God doesn't have needs. But God is Trinity, and the Trinity doesn't have needs. But maybe the individual persons do?

comment How do Lutherans who accept apostolic succession trace theirs?
Given that you have two answers for Anglicanism here, would it not have made sense to edit this one to ask about Anglicans and the other about Lutherans?

@Bubbles I am, I admit, unclear about the exact sanctions.

comment Does Isaiah 45:7 mean that God creates evil?
@fredsbend The same verse is even mentioned in the other question. I don't think there is going to be a different answer.

I guess if everyone in the country is paid by the church, there isn't a lot of point in collecting taxes.

@curiousdannii OK, I admit I didn't think of that. Let me know if you find out. It would be an interesting answer.

No need to apologize. You don't have to be a Christian to ask questions here.

comment What does Israel being God's chosen people actually infer?
"Infer" is not the word you are looking for here."To infer" is to make an act of reason, and only intelligent beings can do it. I'm not sure what you do mean, or I would make an edit.

@Flimzy Not true that the Anglicans don't recognize Popes as valid church leaders or successors to the Apostles. Just not the leader of the Anglican church.

The latest Pope they recognize as the leader of the Catholic church would be Pope Francis (until another one is elected at any rate). The last Pope the Anglicans recognize as a valid leader of the Church of England would be the last Pope before the Act of Supremacy came into effect, i.e. Paul III
