comment Skin color of Adam and Eve
@warren: Well, neither I, nor many other prominent members of this community, nor millions of other Christians, including many prominent theologians throughout the ages, believe in a literal Adam and Eve. I guess you're saying we reject the gospel? That would be what I call extremely ignorant. Or perhaps arrogant, if you somehow prefer that term.

@warren: Are you trolling, or is that a serious (yet clearly completely ignorant) comment?

comment Was the justification for the crusades different from the justification of “Jihad”?
@gideonmarx: It only took 30 seconds to see the overview of the reasons for Jihad and the Crusades, and to tell that they were completely different.

comment Are there any Catholic sects which disagree with the sinlessness of Mary?
@gideonmarx; Well, Catholics believe that Mary was free from original sin, and that she never sinned. If it's meaningful to distinguish which (or both?) that I'm asking about, I can do so, but it seems to me they're pretty inseparably tied to each other in Catholic doctrine.

@davidbrainerd: Time is an integral part of our universe. It's clearly not just a "mental concept." I'd love to hear where you got that idea.

comment Is God bound to future events?
@davidbrainerd: Your question is similar to asking "In what age of Middle Earth did JRR Tolkein live?" And the answer is "He didn't. He lives outside of that universe." (of course the analogy cannot be taken too far, as God does directly involve himself with our world, where as Tolkein was never a character in his own novels).

@davidbrainerd: "eternal" is also a time concept, so that's not any better in an absolute sense.

comment Is God bound to future events?
@davidbrainerd: "single moments" don't exist except within a time continuum, so no, God did not "have all his thoughts in single moment." That's a completely non-sensical statement in the context of something that happens outside of time. As LCIII eludes to in his answer, it's the same as talking about rocks so big God can't move them, or sticks with only one end. It's a logical impossibility.

comment Is God bound to future events?
@davidbrainerd: Yes, I will still assert that. This question assumes that God is bound by time. Christians, including hyper-Calvinists, believe God created time, is therefore outside of time, and is therefore not bound by it.

comment American evangelist Jean Darnell, “UK prophecy 1967” True or false?
@77Clash: Your question has an aggressive "prove this" tone. Your first comment about explaining down votes shows that you expected a negative reaction. Every comment since then has been combative. Now you're trying to turn it into a racial prejudice. Wiki and I are honestly trying to help this site's content be properly focused. You seem to be intent on setting yourself up to be a martyr. I encourage you to adjust your attitude, or at the very minimum, adjust the way you express yourself.

comment Is God bound to future events?
@LCIII: No, I don't think it's pedantic. It's not a question of Christianity. It assumes a world view which simply doesn't exist within Christian doctrine. Consider this similar question which was migrated there. It's a similar "challenge" to "god", which has nothing to with Christianity, per se. It's a philosophical argument which has as much to do with Christianity as with Islam, Judaism, or any other belief system which believes in an all-knowing god.

@LCIII: Calvinists don't hold the premise to be true. Nor do any other Christian groups of which I am aware.

@LCIII: It can be improved by posting it on Philosophy.SE, where it is on topic.
