comment If God is one then why is belief in God insufficient?
Remember that "belief" (πιστευο, 4100) in the case of "belief in God" means more than just "acknowledging the existence of." It means "belief, trust, confidence, conviction, faith, entrusting." Genuine belief in God has consequences.

comment Is there Biblical support for the concept that 'Whenever a man lies with a woman…a transcendental relation is set up between them'?
Marriage does not extend beyond death, but does the relationship between the two eternal beings last beyond death? The relationship is arguably more than the marriage.

comment Does the Bible say if animals in Eden were carnivorous, or when animals on Earth became carnivorous?
Ge 9:2-3 could be understood to mean that God-sanctioned carnivory in humans was not sanctioned until after the flood. This asks the question, were people (and perhaps animals) only herbivorous before?

comment Did Jonah die and raise from the dead?
@Caleb Pentecostals, in general, believe the Bible to be reliable. It seems like arguing from the text would be sufficiently "Pentecostal" to be of some value. With upwards of 170 denominations, it's not as if there's an official Pentecostal position in the first place. They, generally, read the Bible a certain way, but apart from those initial assumptions, there's nothing particularly Pentecostal about this particular question or answer, is there?

comment Did Jonah die and raise from the dead?
@Caleb "Probably" in an understatement, but absolute certainty would be an overstatement.

comment Did Jonah die and raise from the dead?
Deliverance from Sheol/the grave is commonly used in Hebrew poetry. (e.g. Ps 30:3, Ps 86:13, Pr 23:14)

comment Is there a Biblical basis for born-again virginity?
In that we should return to holiness and purity, there definitely is a Biblical impulsion. God redeems his unfaithful bride (e.g. Hosea), but I don't see a direct link between that and a "second virginity." Like I said, it is at best an application of Christian principles.
