comment Can the Pope speak ex cathedra about the return of Christ?
It also assumes that Christ would have an interest in convincing the Pope of anything... which I suspect wouldn't happen.

comment Baptized in a Mennonite church?
I've been attending Mennonite churches most of my life, and I've never been to one that wouldn't welcome you, or anyone else. But the same can be said of most other denominations as well... and even so, there are likely exceptions. Your best bet is to go to a church (Mennonite or otherwise) and see if you feel welcome. If you don't, try another church.

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 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 :)

comment According to Scripture, does anyone born in the world have a God-given right to be baptized?
@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.

comment According to Scripture, does anyone born in the world have a God-given right to be baptized?
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.
