comment Why did Jesus never address God by the name “Jehovah”?
NIV. The meaning would be the same without 'born'. The key point here is the I am that follows it.

comment How do you explain the Christian Message to people who have no Christian vocabulary or context?
It is certainly possible to present the 'unadulterated truth' without using Christian jargon. And it's better that we do that. Otherwise we are preaching to the converted.

Also the Scots Bible and the Geordie Bible. I've no idea if those are counted in the totals above.

comment Why is Jesus the Son called the Father in Isaiah 9:6?
It's dangerous territory to try to divide up the Trinity too strictly. I think it's also safe to say (drawing on quotes about quantum mechanics) that if you think you understand the Trinity completely, then you don't understand it at all.

Technically words like god, prayer, sermon etc. can all be understood without faith, and are understood by most people, religious or not.

What are you asking? Are you asking for a description of Christianity that doesn't use words like 'God'? Or a description that doesn't require faith to assent to it? Or a description that allows them to understand it without necessarily becoming a believer?

comment What official statements represent Christianity's position on the Gospel of Barnabas?
With the absence of any manuscripts or quotes from before the 16th C, there is no reason to believe that the Gospel of Barnabas that exists today is the same one referred to in 5th C.

comment Was Jesus an adherent to 'Sola Scriptura'?
Jesus is God. If Jesus says something, it's God's word, whether it's written in scripture or not.

Jesus is God. He can't be an 'adherent' of any doctrine.

comment Was Jesus an adherent to 'Sola Scriptura'?
This is a very different question from "is Sola Scriptura true?"

I've already started a meta discussion on this. Feel free to join. And you are right that you shouldn't jump to conclusions about my personal beliefs.
