comment What does “to pray” mean in Catholicism?
Hi Anonymous. Do you happen to have a reference for that definition of "worship?" I think it might be contra Roman Catholic orthodoxy -- not that I'm an expert on the subject, because I'm not. Also, FWIW, the KJV usually renders G1391 as "glory," but in at least one verse (Lk 14:10) it is translated as "worship" to describe behavior directed at other people, rather than toward God, in what is apparently a positive tone. Thanks.

comment The differences between the NKJV and KJV Bible translations
@GediminasJeremiahGudelis: There's a Christianity.SE question for that: "Why are Christian books not public domain?"

Also, John Piper provides a great -- and very direct -- answer to that question in this five minute YouTube video.

See this C.SE question: "Is murder allowed if God tells you to do it?"

comment Is hypocrisy a sin?
Eh? Actually, the Bible is very clear about requiring believers to point out sin in one anothers' lives. Can I ask what source you're using for that definition of "hypocrisy?" Here are a few others that might be helpful: 1, 2, 3,4, 5.

comment Is song a critical component of worship or something that we've just borrowed from example?
@CCruz: I didn't mean to suggest that it did. I'm still new enough here that I'm learning the site's guidelines as well -- one of which is apparently to not be too "chatty" in comments, actually, so I'll cut this short. Hang in there, there actually seems to be a very well-thought-out "method to the madness." Reading the meta posts can be really helpful.

I've seen an interesting quote that's been attributed to Luther -- something to the effect that anyone who didn't like using music in worship was just plain evil (Luther tended to be very outspoken about his opinions). Apparently he also thought that the use of pipe organs in church was comparable to Baal worship, though I can't source the quote.

@CCruz: I think the idea is to encourage people to do some preliminary research before asking on C.SE. See, for example, this recent meta post, and the post from David Stratton linked in the comments. Doing some basic research first helps users formulate the best possible questions, and also helps avoid inadvertently asking LMGTFY-type questions.

comment What is the biblical basis for singing in church?
+1. Also, the role of the choir in Church services apparently began to take shape at the beginning of the Constantinian era in the 4th century, when widespread persecution of Christians drew to a close and the liturgy developed as the Church rapidly grew in prominence.

revised Where, exactly, were Christ's body and soul during the Descendit?
Great question, +1. It might get more views and be more likely to get a quality answer w/ a title in interoggative form. Also suggested adding the tag "apostle's-creed," which references the Descendit.
