comment Why do some Christians think it's not a sin to charge interest?
@algiogia: I read that. You know what "archaic" means, right?

comment Why do some Christians think it's not a sin to charge interest?
@algiogia: a high amount of interest, an unconscionable or exorbitant rate or amount of interest, and especially : the lending of money at exorbitant interest rates are not the same thing as simply interest.

comment Why is our righteousness as filthy rags?
"how does Christianity address this?" is never a useful question in the context of this site, because Christianity is a vast sea of opinion. You need to provide a scope. Or, in this case, it might be a better fit for Biblical Hermeneutics, if you change the question to ask for an explanation of the terminology, rather than asking for interpretation.

comment Are we saved by Grace Alone or Faith Alone?
Salvation and Justification are not (according to adherents of the 5 solas) the same thing.

comment What power do spirits have that resurrected beings do not?
I don't know if this applies to Mormon doctrine, but my understanding of mainstream Christian doctrine is that only God is omnipresent, and other spirits (demons/angels, disembodies spirits of humans) are not.

comment Does the Bible explain why God chose Israel?
Think of it this way. Bob tells Alice, "I will give you a new car." Later Bob gives Alice a new car, and Alice asks, "Why did you give me this car?" "Because I promised to" is not a satisfactory answer.

comment Does the Bible explain why God chose Israel?
@Jesse: So why did he make a promise to Abraham? That's the question that matters. Your answer is "God chose Israel because he promised he would make Abraham a great nation." That doesn't answer the question at all. It BEGS the question. Why did God choose Abraham to make a great nation?

comment Does the Bible explain why God chose Israel?
In summary, it seems your answer is "God chose Israel because he chose Israel." That doesn't seem like much of an answer.
