Let us continue this discussion in chat.

comment Did God give Moses visions of History and the Tabernacle on Mount Sinai?
But to answer your question: They are (blatantly, obviously, to the vast majority of Christians), metaphorical mansions.

@jlaverde: Dude. Whatever. We disagree. I'm 100% sure you're wrong. You're 100% sure I'm wrong. Me reading the bible won't convince me that your opinion is right any more than you reading the bible will convince you that I'm right.

comment How should Christians respond to Buddhism?
This question is far too broad. There are countless ways to respond to different religions, in different circumstances. Not to mention there are countless opinions! Some Christians think it is appropriate to protest. Others are friendly. Countless books have undoubtedly been written on this topic, and undoubtedly many disagree with each other.

comment Did God give Moses visions of History and the Tabernacle on Mount Sinai?
@jlaverde: The "third heaven" is, obviously (to most people), metaphor. To say that God, a spirit, who created the physical world (and by definition must therefore exist outside of the physical world) lives in a physical place is, to most people, complete insanity. I can turn it around to you: "If you believe God is confined to a physical place, can you call yourself a true Christian?" Fortunately, neither view on this issue has the least to do with the definition of a Christian.

comment River Baptism Ceremony
My sister and I were baptized in a lake. Many others in my church were baptized in swimming pools or baptismals, depending on what was available at the time. I have attended many other lake and river baptisms of friends. I imagine there are thousands of churches which do baptisms in lakes and rivers. You should probably consult your local phone listings to find a church that is reasonably close to you to actually help you in your TV series.

comment Why did God create man with the ability to sin?
@LeeWoofenden: You say "ugh" about an overview... I say "ugh" about major theologians! I hate those questions. But you're right, the question could be phrased to fit within site guidelines. But with existing answers, the best thing is probably to ask a new question, and let this one remain (closed) for reference.

comment Why did God create man with the ability to sin?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because asking about God's motives is off-topic.

comment Did God give Moses visions of History and the Tabernacle on Mount Sinai?
@jlaverde: If you believe there's a literal throne floating around in the heavens, then there's no point having a conversation with you, because all reason is clearly lost on you.
