comment Do Catholic bishops have greater power within their congregation than Anglican bishop's over theirs?
What do you mean by 'power'? Whatever theological authority is given to bishops, it may or may not translate into any form of power.

Bishops in the Anglican church are not considered infallible, but then for most Anglicans the church is not considered infallible either.

comment why not directly confess our sins to God?
You are aware the the Bible commands Christians to confess their sins to other Christians, not just to God, aren't you?

comment Do the Catholic Church ex cathedra pronouncements about necessity of Catholicism to be saved still apply?
Not got a definitive answer for this, but the pronouncement refers to the "Holy Roman Church's" teaching, but that it is about those outside "the Catholic church". Presumably "the Catholic Church" wouldn't be identical with the "Holy Roman Church" or they would have used the same name. So probably Catholic in the widest sense.

comment Is Ecclesiology more closely related to Christology or Pneumatology?
Hi Steven. This appears to be more of a discussion type question, which really isn't the kind of question we do here. We are looking for questions that have a more definite, factual answer. I would suggest having a look at the FAQs to learn more about what we do here.

The original version of the question says "since the Trinity is one".

comment Blaspheme one part of the Trinity but not the whole?
The questioner isn't asking for the views of non-Trinitarians on this, since it clearly isn't an issue for them.

comment Do I have to admit to not being a virgin when preparing for a Catholic wedding?
I would actually be much more concerned about whether you have told your fiance. While I don't believe any priest would refuse marriage based purely on that point, if your fiance believes you are a virgin and you are not, that could cause possible problems in your marriage later. Sorry to be blunt, but this is a real issue. Talk to someone you trust about this.

comment What is the theological justification for my pastor friending gay men on Facebook?
You need to talk to your pastor about this, and not spread gossip.

comment Why did Christians begin to celebrate other religions holidays?
Easter is not named after Ishtar. Check this question for a complete debunking of that myth. However it (the name, not the festival) does derive from pagan sources.

comment Couldn't it be dangerous to pray to Jesus if he may be a man?
@GregoryMagarshak Since you are insisting on pushing this, let me explain why I believe this still a bad question. The question you are ostensibly trying to ask is "If Jesus wasn't God, would it be wrong to pray to him.". That's such a trivial question (the answer is "yes") that only someone with very little knowledge of Christianity would ask it. You don't appear to be such a person, so presumably you are trying to do something else. Also, asking that question doesn't require quoting a whole lot of Bible verses, which leads us further to believe you are trying to do something else here.

@ZeDemonPyro I think this answer does explain well why Christians celebrate these holidays. You might not agree with the reasons, but that's another matter.
