I am a Canadian, married with kid, and working in Hong Kong. I usually answer posts from a reformed / protestant / evangelical perspective.

People I have encountered on this site seem to be a ‘whole bunch of good people’. Even those who sharply disagree with my own point of view.

I am a huge sinner but am happy knowing God's grace will keep me in his grip.

comment Why did early Christians in Acts still go to the Jewish temple every day?
This is an excellent answer but although kind of besides the point, don't most commentators think the location of Pentecost was a house, possibly the same as Ch 1:3?

comment Is God's wrath an anthropomorphism?
I do not think you need to edit the question as I understood what you were asking and gave you a western view. Your last two question are pretty close to this question. There are not a lot of eastern orthodox questions raised on this site but there are some. christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/7151/…

comment Did Jesus die on the cross or on the tree?
not duplicate question but duplicate answers - to bad the original is in the context of Jehova Witness, we need an mainstream based question, maybe this can be it.--- christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/2109/…

I was hoping I would get a good answer early on as the question had a few hazardous implications being raised on a Q&A site ;). I think this captures a solid answer in a practical context.

comment Is one who is “least in the kingdom of heaven” still in heaven?
The bible does distinguish between levels of rewards in heaven, and levels of punishment in hell, but the verse you mention is on a different topic. The Pharisees avoided some parts of the law while trying to be great teachers by distinguishing between 'so called' small sins versus big sins, similar to Catholic practice today. Jesus is just saying they will no longer be respected by believers and will be considered 'low' no matter who they think they are. Generally this implies actual exclusion from God's kingdom regardless of how they are thought of by men, even when merely thought as 'low'.

+1 but better to expand e quite..."aren’t his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? Aren’t all his sisters with us?"

comment What is the doctrine of the Trinity?
Funny nobody asked this before as the very basic intro to the subject so frequently discussed on this site.

comment What is the doctrine of the Trinity?
Funny that this question was not asked before. I think it should stand as the kind of question one may ask who is really not aware of the very basics of the subject.

comment Who did Jesus intend to take communion?
I am not aware of any scripture that limits the preparation of the Lord’s Supper or its administration to any specific people, however as it is a solemn occasion it naturally fall onto those officially assigned to do it. Preparation could be performed by anybody. I mean the making of the elements, making bread etc. but ‘administration’ would usually fall to people assigned to ‘administrative tasks’ such as Elders, Deacons or Ministers. This is usually the practice of Protestant churches, I imagine Catholics or Eastern Orthodox have further restrictions based in their own traditions. Cheers.
