Do you have a reference to show that this view is official Church of England doctrine, as opposed to the view of this particular CofE minister?

comment Difference between contraception and abortion?
-1 for the reasons Grasper says, and also for stating as fact an opinion not held by all Christians.

Regarding your third paragraph, do you have any evidence whatsoever that Christians understand red clothing in terms of those verses?

Good answer. I suspect that the OP may be thinking of cardinals when he asked the question, since that's what you tend to see if your only exposure to Catholic leadership is the TV news. Would you be in a position to mention Cardinals' use of red?

Your second paragraph is pretty pointless. It's like asking "Why did the USA choose red white and blue for their flag, when red symbolizes Communism, blue is the colour of an asphyxiated corpse and white the lifeless sterility of Antarctica?"

comment Why wasn't Noah's wife name revealed?
Hi @user13989 Thanks for contributing. This website is for questions about Christianity, and answers are expected from a Christian point of view. Answers not from that viewpoint may be deleted. In my personal opinion this sheds some light on an otherwise obscure matter, so I'd favour leaving it. But others may disagree. Anyway, welcome.

comment What does Jesus mean that those that can be trusted on small matters can be trusted in large matter?
As an aside, Sharon, your analysis of the fraudsters is too simplistic. Madoff would (perhaps) not take your change not because it's too small, but because the effort is too big, or the chance of being caught is too big, compared with the benefit. Maybe he would have taken your change if he thought that there was absolutely no way he would have been caught. Likewise your fraudster was not being honest with the initial transactions - he was using them (dishonestly) to lay the foundations for his later fraud.

A relatively simple edit stops this from being a truth question and makes it about Christianity. I've made that edit.

comment Why do high-church people call their personalized Bible study exercises “devotionals”?
Sacramental is the adjective of 'sacrament'. A 'sacramental' marriage is not one that is analogous to a sacrament, but one that is a sacrament.

comment Can a Christian marry his deceased brother's wife?
I believe it's possible to give an overview answer to this question that presents most of the Christian views. Vote to reopen.
