comment What does it mean to be “born of water” in John 3:5?
Welcome to Christianity Stack Exchange! We really appreciate the earnestness in your answer, but it comes off just a tad preachy, and this is not a Christian site. In general we like to be a little more reserved and present answers from a certain point of view, instead of as an objective "one right answer." Maybe try to rework your answer with that in mind - otherwise it looks good!

comment What do Quakers believe about war and serving in the military?
Good answer. Could you maybe provide some sources for the claims on Quaker beliefs? (You're right, of course, but it's always nice to have to reference material. :)

comment Whose morals are being referenced by NT authors in the expression “sexual immorality”?
Marital ceremonies always existed, from the very beginning of Creation. God started off the world with one man and one woman, and Genesis 2:24 says "Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh."
