comment Are there any verses showing God being fooled or deceived?
Jesus was not omniscient in the same sense normally applied to God the Father. The 1 Kings passage doesn't imply lack of knowledge on God's part. many humans ask "What are you doing here?" when they know the answer perfectly well.

comment What is the position of the Episcopal Church on the evolution of man?
@DickHarfield Yes I know he was talking about physical evolution. You said "Pope Francis [...] has declared his support of evolution as the scientifically correct explanation of the origin of man", and I am pointing out that he did not. He stated that evolution does not contradict Christianity,

comment What is the position of the Episcopal Church on the evolution of man?
Pope Francis did not declare his support for evolution as the correct theory. He stated that evolution as currently understood is not incompatible with Christian faith. That's very different. Even scientists don't claim that the current version of evolutionary theory is the only possible one.

comment What are the verses of all the Bible stories that deal with infertility?
There are also tools that let you investigate all bible verses by theme. Thompson's Chain Reference is a good one that is available online. Look up barrenness (or childlessness).

comment What do christians say before they die?
Are you thinking of Last Rites? It's specific to Catholics, and it's not "say something and repeat it", but it is done for people dying.

comment What was the basis for Anselm's Theory of Atonement by satisfaction?
I'm willing to bet good money that Anselm did not base any theological theory on a single Bible verse. It's not the way theologians work - especially good ones.

comment What are the steps for a non-Catholic Christian to become a Catholic?
Hi Christian Teen. Your question is being closed because it's not clear what you are really asking here. It's best to only ask one question at once. If you want to know what is involved in becoming a Catholic if you are already some other kind of Christian, please edit the question to ask that. If you want to know what Catholic events you can participate in as a non-Catholic, please edit to ask that too.

Sorry, I don't think there is any evidence that this means spiritual rather than temporal enemies. The original quote and promise to Abraham certainly isn't just about spiritual enemies.

Real life examples of this are extremely rare, and asking for one is not going to help understand the situation.
