@Geremia: We can't. That's one of the problems with this question.

comment Genesis's Order of Events: Is there Unanimous Consent Among the Fathers?
This question is impossible to answer, because most church "fathers" never told us what they believed about this. For instance, I'm pretty sure that Saint Peter never wrote about this, and he would have been considered the church father by many (specifically Catholics). There are those who argue that Saint Paul wrote about this, although there is a lot of disagreement even on that.

comment What was the early American church like?
I think this question is far too broad. The late 17th to early 18th century America is, literally, a 100-year timespan, and you're asking about the church in an incredibly religiously diverse, and very large nation. One could write tomes on the topic. Can you make the question more specific somehow?

comment Does the Bible prohibit women from having any position of power over men?
@Bye: I don't see Jesus' words about Cesar as directly "separating" religion and government, but rather as direction of how a Christ-follower ought to respond to governmental authority. The instruction to "go the extra mile" is another example, and was a very politically-loaded instruction at the time. But I agree with your broader point that scripture clearly addresses issues beyond religion and family.

@Zoe: The Bible mentions female pastors. Most would consider that a "leadership position."

comment What is the Biblical basis that God does not punish disobedient Christians beyond the immediate natural consequences?
There is clearly Biblical evidence that God has done so. Whether there's a direct statement that he will continue to do so in present times, I'm not certain. so I think it's a good question.

Ahh, yes, as you guessed, that's just because I mentioned it in a comment :)

Make title match the question, rather than asking for opinions

Is this meant to be the counter-point to your other question?

comment Is the sermon on the mount intended for unbelievers?
@fredsbend: Put another way, I can see three possible answers to the question: "Yes, it was meant for unbelievers as you say", "No, it was meant for believers because..." and "It was meant for both believers and unbelievers because..." Which is correct is a matter of opinion. (I happen to believe it was meant for both... but that's only my opinion).

comment Is the sermon on the mount intended for unbelievers?
@fredsbend: If it's not a truth question, it's primarily-opinion based as it's worded (and of course Truth questions are a subset of primarily-opinion based) That's not to say a good, solid question doesn't exit in there somewhere...
