comment What Christian groups believe sex was the original sin, and not disobedience?
@Narnian You know, I don't have a reference either, but I've heard not only this, but that oral sex, specifically, was the first sin. That was a decade ago on a web forum though.

comment Is it possible to be a good Christian and be psychic at the same time?
If I remember my hagiography correctly, there are at least a few accounts of Saints performing miracles which fit into a quasi-telekinesis type of thing, but not substantially more than, say, performing a healing.

comment At what age and how do young Catholics know or be notified that they have committed a mortal sin or a venial sin?
@Anonymous You cannot confess to a sin you did not commit. If you intended to sin in the future, you should not do that. If you intended to sin but failed, then that intention itself was sinful and should be confessed. I cannot comment on gravity.

comment Was Onan really struck dead by God for masturbating?
@warren That is the Catholic, Orthodox, Oriental, and high-church Anglican perspective. Since we're playing a game of numbers, that qualifies to over 75% of Christianity.

@warren That, perhaps, might be a new question, but you will not find unanimous agreement with your interpretation.

comment What are the steps to become Confirmed in the Catholic church?
This statement is false: you go through confirmation to become an adult member of the church. Confirmation has absolutely nothing to do with becoming an adult. When you go through confirmation you become a full member of the Church. If you are a child when you are confirmed, then you will still be a child.

comment How do classic Trinitarians answer the implications of Revelation 1:1?
But that's the point. Your question is, "if we assume that trinity is false, then we reach this conclusion, what do you have to say?" The answer is, "if you assume the trinity, then the answer presents itself."
