comment Does the act of sex constitute marriage in God's eyes?
I was looking for a modern analogy, so no I wasn't commenting on the validity of multiple marriages when it was legal and the norm.

comment What are the “correct” steps for a layman to be a Christian?
I recommend a reading of the Gospels, with a particular emphasis on what Jesus asks of his followers. And I say'followers' not 'believers', for reasons which will become clear.

comment Does the act of sex constitute marriage in God's eyes?
I think there is a logical flaw with this. Not having sex may make you not married: but that doesn't mean having sex makes you married. Being a bigamist also makes a marriage invalid, but not being a bigamist doesn't make you married.

This really needs to be on Biblical Hermeneutics.

comment Is there any Biblical argument against using “cuss words”?
@Eric The f-word and the s-word you mention definitely have unwholesome definitions and associations.

Which words are you thinking of that are considered taboo but "not typically used with any unwholesome meaning"?

That's a reasonable concern. It's not a path I would recommend, to be honest.

comment What are the “correct” steps for a layman to be a Christian?
I'm quoting the question here: " is assuming God(s) exist(s) the first step?"

comment What are the “correct” steps for a layman to be a Christian?
No it's not. The Hebrews passage says that faith is necessary to get to the end of your journey. That doesn't mean it has to come first. (And faith is not just "belief in God" anyway).

Frankly you would have to be a computer to execute this algorithm.

comment Does the Bible advocate ethical egoism?
I think the Wikipedia entry sums it up nicely "ethical egoism (also called egoism)". If your sole goal is to do what is in your own interests, the 'ethical' part is really irrelevant.
