comment How can a loving God make a deal with the devil?
I am trying to point out the false premise in the question. I believe my answers does just that. Granted instead of using the word "request" I think "appeal" would have been a better choice of words. Regardless the outcome is the same, it is clear that there is no bet, bargain, deal, etc. You ask "Why would a good loving God grant Satan's request?" That is a different question based on the fact that the scripture tells us that God does grant appeals. For example the appeal of Kane, or the Gerasene Demoniac. If you would like to ask a question on that topic I will surely answer.

comment In any of James's passages, does he agree to the law being cursed and abrogated?
Is it Acts 21 that you are referring too?

comment Who believes the incarnation and resurrection wouldn't have happened without Mary's faith?
I believe the Bible already answers this: Job 42-2 Isaiah 14-27 No human can thwart the will of God.

comment What is a Christian's justification for a legal prohibition of homosexual marriage?
@Kaz No, you are comparing the act of a man with an act of God you can't reconcile the two. Adam and Eve couldn't marry themselves, just as today someone needs to bring them together. At that time it was God as an example to us of how we should join two people, man took that example and twisted it to fit his own personal desires.

comment What is a Christian's justification for a legal prohibition of homosexual marriage?
@Marc yes, I agree. Woman needed to be created. And if God had intended man to be with man then woman would have never existed at all.

comment What is a Christian's justification for a legal prohibition of homosexual marriage?
If you take the Bible literally, as I do. Then it is clear to see that Genesis does show by example the intent of marriage. This being one man and one woman starting with Adam and Eve. Since that first union man has done everything he can (yes even the prophets are guilty of this) to change or alter God's original plan for us regarding marriage. Whether it be polygamy, divorce or gay marriage all of it is the same in the sense that it is not what God intended for us regarding marriage.

comment Did Jesus actually ever say “if you don't believe in me you go to Hell”?
I also believe that this passage is a warning for those that follow their own will and call it God's will. It is true that to know his will you need to know him.

comment What is the LDS (Mormon) view of the necessity of Jesus death and resurrection?
No, he was talking about what we would need to give up to follow him. The cross reminds of the price that we must be willing to pay to follow him. So why hide it, or worse yet punish people because of it? It's alright though, I've read your book, I know your people, I do not agree with them on many things.

comment What was the charge levied on Jesus in the courts?
@Ali, Luke 4:8, And Jesus answered him, “It is written, “‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve.’” And yet, Jesus allowed people to worship him.

Jesus might disagree with you on it's significance, after all he said in Luke 9:23 "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me."
