comment Is 'sola gratia' as a soteriology traceable in the period leading to the Protestant Reformation?
Research Monergism -- it was a theology alive and well in the early Church, and it was rejected and condemned officially around at 6th Ecumenical council in 680. And FYI your question is a tad presumptuous. The thinking is typically the Catholics added to the Gospel, not distorted.

comment What is the New Testament “process” for doing a church plant?
Or maybe non-denominational?

comment Should we put God to test?
I'll expand a little on your last one - The point here is if in your testing of the Lord brings forth glory to the Lord, then I think here it certainly is permissible. As stated in all other answers, it is the intentions of the believer that matter the most.

comment What does the Bible say about how we should pray?
Yet, Christ gives us a very specific model to pray by with the Lord's Prayer, so what's wrong with following a general structure? What about the singing of the psalms? In the very early days of the church, the psalms were sang every day (and til this day) and most of the psalms are considered to be prayers in their own right, so Book of Psalms is the earliest example of a "prayer book" being used in the church. Very well spoken on behalf of the Spirit however. I think this question could be even two separate issues, "How should the Church pray together" and "How should we pray privately?"

comment According to Reformed Theology, are Catholics Christians?
I potentially see this question stirring up very heated answers. Like zefciu said, that article is not exactly free of any logical fallacies. I wouldn't go as far to say that Catholicism reformed theology, but rather, added to it.

@zefciu God also appeared as 3 to Abraham.

comment Who is Wisdom in Proverbs?
And on a side note, if "Wisdom" was "anybody", it would just be the WORD (since well, you can only hear and see Wisdom in words, you can't "feel" Wisdom") , which would therefore be Christ before He was incarnate.

comment Resources to learn about Bible canonization
This book looks interesting, Affable Geek, have you read it yourself? I was wondering then, does this author touch on how the different versions of the Bible might of changed the meaning, or does it account for the Dead Sea Scrolls as well?

comment Shouldn't Mary’s genealogy be Jesus' family history?
I think it is man's hardened hearts and trying to relate/compare knowledge of His world to knowledge of our world, which never works out. Keep doing your searching for your answers and pray the real meaning comes to you. :)

comment Did Christ know who He was as a youth?
I am not sure about that link to the Infancy Gospel of Thomas. Most all mainstream faiths consider this non-canonical gospel to be heretical.

comment Shouldn't Mary’s genealogy be Jesus' family history?
@SonicTheHedgehog I am sorry, I have to emphatically disagree that Mary was not the Mother of God. If God wanted Jesus to come into this world not through a woman, He would of done so. He was born of a woman, thus making that woman his mother. There is so much more I could add here, and I think this could be another question in itself.
