comment Are the gifts of the Holy Spirit still active today?
I appreciate and respect your experience and consideration. However this site is for giving of general answers, not personal ones. Your answer presents only one of a number of (considered) views held by Christians on the subject. You might improve the answer by making it clear that you are presenting your view: the groundwork sections seems to imply that you are presenting an answer that all Christians would agree with.

comment Are the gifts of the Holy Spirit still active today?
I'm sure this is an excellent summary of your theology, and probably even the theology of your church, but it is not a view universally agreed on by Christians. "If you are born again, you have been baptized in the Spirit." is absolutely disagreed with by a substantial number of Christians

comment How does a biblical literalist interpret the tale of David and Goliath?
The main discrepancy will be between 1 Sam 17:56-58, where Saul asks David who his father is, and 1 Sam 16:17-21 where he clearly already knows who his father is.

It's also immoral to commit murder. Are you saying that putting that question in the hands of the government is immoral?

This isn't the question. The question is about being against welfare.

comment How do we argue when someone posits a non-causal universe
I'm not sure that this is about Christianity. I think it might be better on the Philosophy site.

comment Is man born in God's image, or was that just Adam?
"Even an animal [...] has mind, emotion, will, creativity. " While there are those who would subscribe to this idea today, for most of Christianity's 2000 year history this would not have been thought true. It's not universally agreed today.

Incidentally the only truly universal agreement in what 'image of God' means is that it isn't a physical likeness.

As a post-reformation Protestant I assure you that is not the case. Your problem is that you are interpreting 'image of God' to mean only the moral realm, and that is not how it is normally interpreted.

You should really only answer your own questions if your answer is a standard one. This looks like a personal interpretation.
