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.

comment Who are “Born again” Christians?
"A 'born again' Christian is someone who has come to believe in Jesus as their lord and savior in their heart." That's a really simplistic way of summing up a complex issue.

comment Issues with legal documents and marriage
The Bible never discusses the form of marriage ceremony, or answers the question "what constitutes a valid marriage?". So you are really left with the views of the various churches, or seeking your own answer direct from God. The view of the churches is pretty much what I described. Private revelation I can't help with.

comment Issues with legal documents and marriage
Can you say a little more about what you are concerned about? Are you concerned because you might be considered legally married before you consider yourselves to be? Or are you concerned that God would think you are 'lying' by 'claiming' to be married before you have gone through the religious ceremony? Or are you worried that God thinks this isn't the 'right' way to do marriage?

comment Old testament accuracy of God's Word
@MarcGravell You will note that my answer says "There are differing Christian positions" with regard to historicity. Your Lutheran is probably one of those differing positions.
