Second Timothy 2:22-26 (ESV) --

So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels. And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will.

comment What topic in Theology does Tozer's “The Saint Must Walk Alone” fit under?
That's one. Haven't read it myself, but I've heard it's worth considering.

I've not read The Saint Must Walk Alone, but if you're looking for material on discipleship, I've heard that Bonhoeffer had some interesting, if sometimes controversial & not-entirely-orthodox things to say.

comment According to Reformed Theology, are Catholics Christians?
Calvin wrote at length about his views on what he called "the Papal Church" (i.e. the Roman Catholic Church) in book four of his Institutes. And Luther was not bashful about calling the Pope the "antichrist" and the "man of lawlessness" that was described in the NT epistles.

comment Difference between Gospel and Bible
Can you provide a reference for your statement that Luke "knew [Jesus] personally?" Calvin, Henry, Clarke -- and many more -- all taught otherwise. See Luke 1:1-4. But maybe you mean "knew" in a "spiritual" sense.

comment How does mainstream Christianity view “Heaven is for Real”?
Hah! That's great -- and notice that I called it a "reasonably intelligible," not "great" question! FWIW, I think you're doing a good job. The speed with which you seem to be learning about Christianity is impressive and encouraging. Cheers.

comment Why did God need to plant the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the garden of Eden in the first place?
Being both worthy of and desirous of glory does not make God "selfish," if one believes that obedience to God is what is truly best for man. Further reading from this perspective, courtesy of John Piper's ministry: 1, 2, 3.

comment How does mainstream Christianity view “Heaven is for Real”?
@Caleb: I disagree; I think the original question was not "all over the place." It's probably not the most concise wording, and the formatting could use some work, but I found it reasonably intelligible. Over the space of just a week or two, the OP seems to be investing noticeably greater effort in crafting questions, and should be commended, not rebuked.
