comment How do you explain the Christian Message to people who have no Christian vocabulary or context?
Technically words like god, prayer, sermon etc. can all be understood without faith, and are understood by most people, religious or not.

comment How do you explain the Christian Message to people who have no Christian vocabulary or context?
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.

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.

@Jas3.1 The problem with that approach is that it turns this site into a discussion site plus popularity contest. We would be abandoning the idea of being able to make any kind of definitive answer, and simply allowing people to post their opinions.

@Jas3.1 The fact that you are presenting your view as the only correct one is why you still get my downvote.

@Jas3.1 The first paragraph of your 'Groundwork' section reads very much like you are saying that it is the 'correct' view. If you reworded it to make it clear that some Christians disagree, that would be much better.
