comment Did the Jews think it was immoral to have leprosy?
The offering in question is a thanksgiving for cleansing from leprosy.

Why do you think that passage shows that leprosy was a punishment for sin?

comment Does Jesus ever claim to be God, or the son of God?
This doesn't answer the question.

comment Pantheism in the Bible?
A gas fills a box, but the gas is not the box. A gas a separate from the box, and may be outside the box. So God is separate from creation (even if he fills it) and may be outside of creation.

@TheFreemason I figured a thousand years ago counted as 'ancient'.

Interesting as this is, I don't think it answers the question.

comment what we will be has not yet been made known?
Hi jerry. Thanks for coming here, but this question doesn't make any more sense than your last one. Please write in simple language what the question you are asking is. And please don't duplicate your posts. You can edit your previous one.

comment Kissing in plays
Hi Keagan. Thanks for asking this question. However we really can't answer it - not because we don't want to help, but because we don't know you well enough to give good advice. It's also a bad idea to ask for personal advice from random strangers on the internet. We strongly recommend you find a wise Christian adult who you trust, and ask their advice.

comment What is consumerism and what does the Pope see wrong with it?
Did you read the encyclical? It pretty much explains what the Pope thinks about it.

comment What is consumerism and what does the Pope see wrong with it?
I don't see any reason to think that the Pope means anything significantly different from what everyone else who uses the term means.

comment Any instructions given by contemporary prominent preachers on how to receive the gift of tongues?
Some branches of Pentecostalism believe that the gift of tongues is always given to a believer who has received the Baptism of the Spirit. They still consider it to be a 'gift'. The first paragraphs describe the beliefs of most Christians (those who accept the genuineness of the supernatural gifts), and the last one specific branch of Christianity.

comment What religious beliefs did the Galatians hold when Paul first preached the gospel to them?
By 'pagan' do you mean 'not a believer in Jesus', in which case they were obviously not believers before they were evangelized? Or are you asking if they were believers in Roman or some other deities, rather than perhaps Jews?

comment What was the purpose of creating the world?
Hi marulia. Thanks for deciding to contribute here. We hope you stick around. However the site is a bit different from other sites. Here questions are not about your opinion, but about what Christianity teaches. Answers should reference teachings of specific churches. Please do take the 'Tour' (under the help menu) to find out a bit more about what we do here.

comment Did Christ's original twelve apostles have families?
Most TV shows, even ones dealing with factual history, add in elements for dramatic effect. The existence of Peter's daughter in the show doesn't mean that she existed in real life.

An important question - is DMT illegal where you live?

This might be better on our Biblical Hermeneutics site.

comment From a marriage to a monastery
@MattGutting If that were an answer I would vote it up. I don't think there is anything more to add, except that a monastery or convent would never accept someone currently in a valid marriage.
