Where in the Bible does it tell you how to post to Stack Exchange? Or did you learn it somewhere else?

Also, please don't post the same question multiple times.

It's not that we don't want to help, but random people on the internet are not the best people to ask for advice. I strongly recommend talking to wise people you know. If you have a faith-based pregnancy centre near you they will be able to help.

comment Why are Christians “homophobic”?
"Reality shows us...?" Reality has a well-known liberal bias.

I think you are omitting the Exodus 32 incident.

comment Confirmation vs born again
I don't think there is actually much of a link between confirmation and being born again. The denominations that associate being born again with a specific rite usually associate it with baptism.

comment Is there a significance of the “Christian name”?
@Anonymous In the sense of restrictions placed by the Church of England on what names a baby can be given at baptism, I'm pretty sure that they are few. Babies have certainly been baptized with foreign names in the CofE.

comment Is there a significance of the “Christian name”?
@Anonymous Absolutely not. In the sense of being a synonym of 'first name', foreign first names might well have been referered to like that, especially if someone was baptized in a foreign country (and possibly even if not). Several decades ago someone might have referred to a person whose 'Christian name was Muhammed' (if they weren't really thinking about it).

comment Where does the Catholic church stand on governments supporting foreign groups or other governments that abuse human rights?
@TheFreemason I think you just Godwined this question.

comment Why are bibles sold for profit?
Are you sure that Bibles are sold at a profit, rather than simply being sold at a price that covers their costs?

@Narnian Maybe chatting about this would be better than arguing in comments. Feel free to start a chat.

comment What scientific arguments are there to support Young Earth Creationism?
This is only a tiny part of the arguments used by YEC i favour of their viewpoint.

comment What scientific arguments are there to support Young Earth Creationism?
@Narnian Yes, that would be ridiculous and biased AND I DID NOT SAY IT. What I did was to state the view of most Christians and the vast majority of scientists. And frankly I object to you making false claims about what I said. If you want to back up your assertion, please point to the part of my answer where I call anyone stupid. You are a high-rep user, and I find it disappointing that you make baseless accusations against another contributor.

Sometimes the same symbols is used by different people for different purposes.

comment Why do some Protestants divide the Blood of Christ into individual cups?
It's 'unscriptural' only in the same sense that wearing pants is unscriptural - i.e. they tended not to do it two thousand years ago.

comment In any of James's passages, does he agree to the law being cursed and abrogated?
No, James is pointing out to people who think they have been 'pretty good' at keeping the law, that unless they have kept every single part of it (which nobody has) then they are still lawbreakers and needing forgiveness.

comment Where is the Third Temple to be built?
Why do we think the passage is about the third temple and not the second? The commands to sacrifice animals, unnecessary following the sacrifice of Jesus, would tend to preclude the idea that this is a Christian temple.

comment Was Jesus present at the beginning of time.? Or when did the Trinity come into being?
This is pretty straightforward. According to the doctrine of the Trinity, God the Son is eternally a part of the Godhead, and has existed for ever. He was incarnate as Jesus of Nazareth around 4BC.
