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 When scripture quotes a non-biblical source, without any opposition of the source, does it imply any endorsement?
@warren -we are agreeing if you have not noticed. Of course I do not believe it does. One of the answers is also mine. I have only asked the question as some people think it does.

comment Why did early Christians in Acts still go to the Jewish temple every day?
You seem to have a good common sense observation. Am I correct to assume that you think they were no longer participating in the sacrifices, or are you thinking they may have also been doing that not really realizing the real impact of the 'wall of partition' being torn down?

comment Did Paul write the Epistle to the Hebrews?
@swasheck - no not at all. It would be likely that Paul condescended to their weakness of their low view of him to skip the subject of his Apostleship for their sakes in love. Also as they were doubting the whole NT they might not even respect the title of Apostles, so Paul concentrates on the OT authority to establish Christ's superiority with no need to over emphasis the authority of the Apostles and add that stamp to the header of the epistle. He was being meek and concentrating on the facts.

comment Before the fall of man
Ha, ha. Again this question. Of course Adam and Eve would not have died. I have noticed some classical Calvinists suppose that the tree of life represented the eternal life that Adam could have achieved for humanity under the original covenant of works. As he did not Jesus is the new Adam, son of man, to achieve it for us.

comment How does the gospel turn justice into a defender of the guilty?
+1 - love the pure gospel preached. This answer indirecty answers 3/4 of all religious questions. Wonderful thing to hear.

comment Why did early Christians in Acts still go to the Jewish temple every day?
Ok i really think it was not in the temple but in some house, but this is aside to the subject and I think your answer it bang on that a spirit of evangelism gripped the believers with great excitement and brotherly love.

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/…
