comment What do Evangelical Christians consider “the traditions” to be in 1 Thessalonians 2:15?
Asking how Evangelicals interpret scripture is more broad than asking what the original language meant.

I think that would make the question narrow--and also better scoped for BH.SE.

Would it not be better to ask what the text itself means? In theory, that's what Evangelicals would consider it to mean. If there are multiple possible interpretations, assuredly Evangelicals use them all.

comment About the belief in the after-life as indicated in the Old Testament
I would suggest by reading the actual story you're talking about (1 Samuel 28 is probably the one) so you can ask a well-researched question, rather than one based on a bunch of half-guesses.

comment About the belief in the after-life as indicated in the Old Testament
Einstein was an ethnic Jew. Whether he considered himself one or not is irrelevant to this fact, and also completely unrelated to his religious beliefs. It's also completely off topic for this site what (contemporary) Jews think about the after life.

comment Is Tim Keller's view of idolatry Biblical?
Asking if something is Biblical is very close to a Truth Question. Asking for the Biblical arguments for or against a position is usually a more constructive format for our site. Having said that, though, it seems like @ChrisSunami is probably right that this question is a duplicate.

comment According to Scripture, does anyone born in the world have a God-given right to be baptized?
@FMS: Also my comment about salvation really has nothing to do with the question of baptism.

@FMS: I'm absolutely not on the attack. If you think I am, you haven't been reading anything I've said.

I think its safe to say that by most Christian theology, salvation absolutely is not a right--it's a gift. A right is something inherently owed to you.

@randomA: Then it was a bit of a lucky guess on my part, but I'm glad we could be of help! And welcome to the site!

@fredsbend: Ah, but that has a Gospel feel to it, considering that Jesus died so that his persecutors could live! ;)

@fredsbend: Considering that Les Misérables was published nearly 200 years later, I'd say that it has a Martyrs Mirror feel to it :)

@FMS: Motives, persevered or otherwise, don't make a question valid or invalid. However, when a question is unclear or ambiguous, knowing the asker's motives can often be beneficial in clarifying the question. This is all I was asking for in this case. Unfortunately, your explanation hasn't helped clarify the matter for me. In fact, it's only confused me even more... I guess I'll just leave things alone.

I really feel like this question (and the other one linked here) are trying to make some other, broader point. They feel like contrived questions. Is there a larger concept you are trying to explore that you could explain to us? That might help us understand and perhaps focus these questions to be more constructive.
