comment What does “bowels of mercies” mean?
A look at a more modern translation (i.e. one less than 300 years old) would help here.

You might like to look at this answer: christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/1050/…

comment What does the “reformed and recovered Christian fundamentalist” mean?
Because it's really just about the meaning of words. If Hitchens had written "Reformed and recovering Hindu" the answer would have been the same.

comment Why should belief be ever more important than rationalism?
Congratulations on one of the most thorough Godwinizations of an argument I have ever encountered.

comment Why should belief be ever more important than rationalism?
Are you asking why it's an axiom on this site? We are a site for questions about Christianity, and not a debating site. Other than that Christian belief is not usually an axiom. If you want to ask questions about how this site works, you can do so on the meta site - under the help menu.

comment How do protestant Christians keep the sabbath?
Hi Tejas. We are looking for more general answers, not just your personal experience. Please have a look at the help pages to find out how we are different from most other forums.

comment Why do translations use words like “servants” to mean “slaves”?
@JimThio Unfortunately 'servant' doesn't correspond exactly either. We don't have a word that exactly corresponds to someone in that position.

comment Do reformed theologians call “God the Father” Jehovah?
You are I presume citing the part of the etymology section which says: 'Many scholars propose that the name "YHWH" is a verb form derived from the biblical Hebrew triconsonantal root היה (h-y-h), which means "to be"', (among other related things).

Doesn't appear to be an actual question here.

comment My question is: Who is God?
Even if you were to restrict the answer to one denomination, the answer would be far too big to write here. If you have a specific question about God please ask. Alternatively there are many good books on the subject, or you could talk to a local Christian leader for more information.

comment Where did Jesus stay during his 3.5 yr ministry?
@disciple I'm unaware of any indication that Jesus might have owned a house. It's certainly not a widely-believed view. if you have good evidence that this might be the case, please write an answer with it in.

comment How valid is the JEDP theory?
At the most basic level of answering your question, JEDP theory is accepted by a reasonable number of theologians, and so is obviously not complete nonsense.

comment public domain modern translation for commentary on Book of Matthew
Most commentaries don't actually quote the verses they are commentating on. They assume that you have the text available. You should have no trouble writing and publishing a commentary for a single book that doesn't go over the 500 verse limit.

comment How do Protestants understand the “unforgivable” sin?
Hi Joe. Please note that answers get re-ordered according to community votes, so the answer you are talking about may not be 'above' yours. In general it is much better to make answers stand-alone rather than referring to other answers.

comment Can other “scripture” (such as the Quran) be used as ultimate authority in presuppositional apologetics?
A Christian apologist may deal with philosophical matters outside of Christianity itself. That doesn't make those matters a applicable on a forum about Christianity, especially when it is about applying them to non-Christian scriptures.

comment Can other “scripture” (such as the Quran) be used as ultimate authority in presuppositional apologetics?
I don't think this is really a question about Christianity. Either philosophy or other religions.

comment What are some of the reasons for which Catholics are against gender-neutral secular marriage?
I am not presenting you with an argument, I am answering your question. StackExchange is the wrong place for an argument, but you seem to be intent on having it. I'm not going to.

comment What are some of the reasons for which mainstream non-Catholic Christians are against gender-neutral secular marriage?
@BCLC Because every time someone gives you an answer you try to invalidate that answer. Because you ask accusatory 'follow-up' questions. Because you ask for clarifications on things that you claimed originally to know the answer to. Because you say things like "Okay, so you presented the assumptions. What is the argument?". Because you feel the need to reply to every single comment that is made, and every answer that is presented. Because you keep talking about answers that don't "make an argument".

comment What are some of the reasons for which mainstream non-Catholic Christians are against gender-neutral secular marriage?
@BCLC You seem to be trying to conduct an argument in the comments section. Please don't do that. In fact please don't use this site to have an argument at all. If you have more specific questions, please ask them as a separate question.
