comment How do we know to refer to the Holy Spirit as He?
So to summarize the comments, this answer is completely wrong! Jesus did not call the Holy Spirit "Him". The biblical translators had to pick a pronoun to make the sentence grammatical, and choose "him" as probably the best alternative.

comment What was Augustine's soteriology?
Given that the Catholic church considers Augustine "the greatest of the doctors" I seriously doubt that you can demonstrate a major disagreement between Augustine and Catholicism. It is certainly not enough to say that "because Calvin frequently quotes Augustine, Augustine must agree with Calvin". The Catholic church quotes Augustine much more frequently.

comment What is the Rule of Prayer?
As soon as you start thinking about prayer as a set of rules, you are on the wrong track.

comment Do the temples need cleaning?
@Nok No, absolutely not. A den is not a place robbers go to rob, it's a place where they go to hide.

comment How do Catholics justify confessing to a priest?
In James 5:16 Christians are explicitly commanded to confess their sins to each other - not just to God. The question isn't so much "How do Catholics justify doing this" as "How do Evangelicals justify not doing it"?

comment How do Catholics justify confessing to a priest?
You are confusing the two meanings of the term 'confess'. The Romans 10 passage is not talking about confessing sins, but confessing your belief.

comment How does the Bible describe the gender roles?
Good portrayal one viewpoint. Even evangelicals disagree on this.

comment What process will be followed for the Anglican Covenant after its rejection by the Church of England?
This question is inviting speculation about the future, and so off-topic.

comment What does the Bible say about life before conception?
@Matt If you are giving the viewpoint of a particular Christian tradition it might be a good idea to state that.

comment What does the Bible say about life before conception?
References to angels existing before we were born is not proof that we existed before we were born.

comment Religious justification for creating a large angry scene with the ostensible purpose of making people not gay
Still not sure if you are talking about calmly stating your viewpoint about a controversial issue, or about angrily protesting against someone giving their views.
