comment What is the difference between a Christian and a Messianic Jew?
There are those who are Christian and ethnically Jewish who do NOT self-identify as Messianic Jews. Doing so is partly about wishing to retain - at least partly - your identity as a Jew, and partly as a statement of belief that Christianity is the fulfilment of Judaism, not just 'another religion'.

BDSM covers more than you are saying here.

comment Is BDSM dealt with in Scripture?
BDSM covers a wide variety of practices, so it's pretty unlikely that there will be a simple "yes/no" answer to this. There will also be different views within Christianity.

comment Why doesn't the Catholic Church kill heretics anymore?
I'd like to see a little more analysis here. Going back five hundred years or so, the division of power between church and state was not as clear cut as it is now. The church certainly had the ability to punish its clergy, without resorting to the state. Can we see more evidence that the church delegated the punishment of offenders to the state?

comment Do you have to have a certain amount of intelligence to get into heaven?
@JimG. You are unfortunately confusing 'ignorance', the opposite of knowledge, with 'intelligence' and its opposite, stupidity. They are not the same thing, and are not in fact necessarily correlated.

comment Do you have to have a certain amount of intelligence to get into heaven?
Utter and complete bollocks, caused by an unfortunately common problem of regarding Christianity as a Book of Rules and not a relationship with a loving God.

comment How does the Catholic Church reconcile the holy Catholic Church with (the) Pope(s) asking for forgiveness?
I believe there is a more significant point. The church is redeemed, in the same way that individual Christians are redeemed. Christians are presented as holy and blameless before God, even though they have sinned, thanks to the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Likewise the church is saved and redeemed through that grace.
