comment Did Philip see Jesus turn water into wine?
As a tiny nitpick, Jesus only decided to go to Galilee the next day after his baptism. More time might have elapsed before he found Philip. (The gospels have a very sparse style, and might not have mentioned a time gap - although I would certainly agree that it is likely that Philip was a disciple by the time of the wedding).

Do you have an example?

comment Questions Of Catholic Faith
Not only are we not equipped to do this, but getting spiritual advice from random strangers on the internet is a bad idea. We strongly suggest you consult a wise Christian who you trust, preferably a leader in your church.

Edited your question to reflect what you just said.

comment When can God go against free will?
@Grasper If that is your question, please edit your post to say that. Because at the moment it looks like you have just come here for an argument.

comment When can God go against free will?
This is a philosophical question and not about Christianity. But as you just said, having free will does not mean you are immune to harm.

comment When can God go against free will?
@Grasper Free Will doesn't mean that whatever every person wants to happen will always happen - if that were true then no person ever would have had free will.

comment Can you please clarify Acts 2:34
This would be a better fit on Biblical Hermeneutics.

comment If the Eucharist is not Jesus then why would eating meat sacrificed to idols make Jesus jealous?
It's nothing to do with the Eucharist. Eating meat sacrificed to idols is a form of worship of idols (v18) and so it is wrong to participate.

comment What does the phrase “God of God” means in the Nicene Creed?
Many more modern translations of the creed render it "God from God".

comment Better term for clergyperson?
From a Christian perspective, many protestant denominations do not recognise 'clergy' as different from anyone else, and don't like to use the term.

Probably better on the English Language site.

comment Aren't the Nicolaitans the guys who formed the Roman Catholic Church?
This reads like an argument disguised as a question. The association is something you seem to have made yourself with no justification and seems designed to insult other Christians. If you could provide some actual support, or rephrase it as "are there modern day churches descended from the Nicolaitans" then it might be an acceptable question.

comment Was there anyone specific who ever argued that God was dead?
@MattGutting May as well make that the answer. I can't see anything more to say.

Any of the first three Google hits for "god is dead" would give you the answer.

comment What is a biblical commandment?
Vote to keep open. It's an easy misunderstanding to think that the Ten COmmandments are the only ones in the Bible, and it's not about misunderstanding what a 'commandment' is. The answer should be simple, and give some examples of other commandments, and probably explain why the Ten are special.

comment Jesus celebrated Jewish Passover; why Christians celebrate Easter, a different feast?
You are giving Biblical quotes, so I assume that you know that Easter is about the resurrection of Jesus. That is entirely different from what is celebrated at Passover. So what is it that you don't understand?

comment Was Jesus Christ crucified on the 14th of Nisan (April 3, 33) or the 15th (April 4, 33),?
We strongly discourage asking more than one question at once here. I've edited your question to only contain one. Please feel free to ask the other in a separate question.

comment How many times did Jesus rise and come back down?
Did you do any research as to how many times Jesus ascended to heaven?
