comment When, if ever, is eisegesis a valid interpretation of scripture over exegesis?
Isn't this asking "when is it right to misinterpret scripture"?

comment if homosexuality is a sin, why isn't abstinence?
I have no idea who you are talking to to hear "they can't be fruitful" as the most common argument against homosexuality, but it's not anyone who knows anything about Christian theology.

comment Homoousios (same substance) God
Natural laws are not laws in the sense of edicts - they are simply descriptions of the way the natural world works (when God does not act otherwise).

comment Who is Father or God in Christianity
Would it be possible to add a definition of the Trinity, as well as the analogies?

comment Is it hypocritical to be a Christian and also be against welfare?
An interesting point, but I'm not sure it makes any difference. Since Christians no longer have to spend a lot of time ensuring that people don't starve (sine that's now the government's responsibility), they should have more time to spend addressing people's spiritual needs.

comment Should a Christian watch horror movies?
Two good catch-all universal-prohibition verses there. I call something I don't like 'worthless', and then because the Bible bans worthless things, the thing I don't like must be banned too.

comment The Tyranny of the Weaker Brother
I have to say that I have never had someone object to anything I did because it might make them stumble. It's always been "it might make someone else stumble".

comment What is the significance of the Bible to Christianity?
If someone were taught the message of Jesus, and placed their faith in him, but never themselves opened the Bible or heard of it as a book, then I'm going to go with "yes they are a Christian". It's certainly not obvious that they wouldn't be.

comment Was Jesus an adherent to 'Sola Scriptura'?
OK, Jay. Imagine you are a disciple of Jesus, circa 30AD. You listen to Jesus preaching. Is what he says authoritative? Yes, absolutely. Is it in scripture? No, because the New Testament isn't written down yet. The only scripture is the Old Testament. If you are a follower of 'sola scriptura' then you must reject his words, because they are not in scripture. And if Jesus were a follower of sola scriptura then he must reject them also. Which would be stupid.
