comment How do classic Trinitarians answer the implications of Revelation 1:1?
Is 'classic Trinitarian' meant to mean anything other than 'Trinitarian'?

comment Why did the council of Laodicea condemn “Judaizing” Sabbath rest?
The Council of Laodicea is not a Catholic thing. I predates the division of the church into Catholic and 'others'.

This answer represents very much a minority view of Christians, even 'Bible Christians'.

comment Seeming paradox arising from idea of eternal life
Really this is more of a philosophy question than theology. I think the key question is - is not having any given child really an infinite loss? Or a loss at all? It's like saying that having steak for dinner is a loss, because it means I didn't have chicken.

comment so few churches acknowledge singles in light of 1 Corinthians 7: 6-9 is this an oversight?
While this is an excellent issue to be looking at, I suspect that there isn't going to be a definitive answer to it. Few churches make it a policy to neglect singles, so there isn't in any way an'official' answer. We might be able to find some respected writers and quote their beliefs about why singles are neglected.

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 There is good reason - from scripture and the teachings of Jesus - to say that the OT rules are no longer applicable to Christians today.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.
