comment Will suicide keep me out of Heaven?
I once had a friend who was a Christian and became clinically depressed. What made it worse was that she had somehow got the idea that Christians couldn't be depressed, and so she started believing that she must have committed the unforgiveable sin, which made her more depressed; and so on in a spiral. It wasn't until she got proper medication that she started to come round.

comment How did Christians of WW1/WW2 view the book of Revelation?
Not going to make this ana nswer, but I've never heard of any significant millenial movement during either WW1 or WW2.

comment Is man's ability to reason properly a gift by the Holy Spirit?
I don't think 'the ability to reason' is what most commentators believe is meant by 'a message of knowledge'. I'm also not sure why 'let us reason together' might be interpreted to mean that the ability to reason is a gift of the Spirit, rather than a natural attribute.

comment What is the difference between a professing and a non-professing Christian with regards to their faith, beliefs, etc?
@thursdaysgeek If they call themselves Christians, doesn't that make them professing Christians?

@Caleb I don't think you are using the normal sense of "professing". If someone tells precisely one person that they are a Christian, and that person never tells anyone else, does that make them a "professing Christian"? That would be far from the normal usage.

Somewhat. It's not the normal usage.

comment Which Protestant churches as of today officially recognize homosexual marriage unions?
I don't think this question is unreasonable. Yes it sounds 'listy', but we know the answer is going to be a manageable number of churches, and it's likely that a reference can be found that lists most of them.

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.
