comment What is the argument AGAINST the position that only Paul's writings are applicable to the church today?
You miss my point. There is good reason - from scripture and the teachings of Jesus - to say that the OT rules are no longer applicable to Christians today. Your answer doesn't explain why that might (or might not) also apply to the Gospels, which is what the question is about.

comment What is the argument AGAINST the position that only Paul's writings are applicable to the church today?
The OT is part of scripture, and 'profitable', but most Christians would consider that the laws contained therein are not applicable to the church today (we eat pork and don't sacrifice animals). What is needed is an argument that The Gospels don't fall into the same category.

Seriously? There are Christians who think that the teachings of Jesus are 'for information only'?

comment Are the Bible and God the same… thing/being?
I wish it was as simple as "if you ask what the Bible says, you know what you get". The wildly different opinions on what the Bible says are contrary evidence.

comment In what situations does the Bible say it's acceptable, perhaps, to do an action you might consider sinful?
The quote is "[David] entered the house of God, and he and his companions ate the consecrated bread—which was not lawful for them to do, but only for the priests." Jesus says clearly that it was not lawful. Make sure you read Rick's answer, which also contains important points.

comment What terms have been used by missionaries to Islamic countries to describe Islam?
Frankly I'm sure there are some Christian missionaries or evangelists who have used every term under the sun to describe Islam, from positive to offensive.

comment What is the Biblical basis for disbelief in the doctrine of the Trinity?
You missed a few. And since You're getting a chance to write an answer from your own point of view unopposed, I'd be grateful if you could remove the gross insult against Trinitarians in general.

comment Why can't Catholicism just drop its Marian devotion?
If Christian Unity were the main objective, then it makes much more sense for Protestants to drop their objections to Catholic doctrine and just rejoin the Catholic church.

comment What is the Biblical basis for disbelief in the doctrine of the Trinity?
I think this is a good answer, but I wonder if it would be also a good idea to state how the people who follow this view approach the texts that indicate that Jesus is God?

comment Why is Jeremiah 31:31-34 interpreted by Catholic Christians to point toward Jesus?
Most Christians believe that. Please see the answers to this question.
