comment Is the height of first century Judeans evidence against the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin?
@fredsbend: I realize it's a "Christian relic," but this question doesn't relate to the "Christianity" of it.

comment Are there Biblical reasons why a Christian should not believe that Global Warming is happening
As for how global warming should affect Christian worldviews (and vice-versa) the two are completely unrelated -- I can't disagree with this more strongly. If global warming is real, then a Christian should have compassion on those affected, and work to help them. If GW is true and caused by man, then Christians should do far far more to slow, or even reverse, global warming. To say it's irrelevant to a Christian is to say that Christians are, or ought to be, without compassion.

I realize this answer is old, and likely came about before we really firmed up the site guidelines, but it's overflowing with unreferenced personal opinions--most of which don't hold up to even the slightest scrutiny. I cannot downvote this answer enough.

comment Are there Biblical reasons why a Christian should not believe that Global Warming is happening
If you believe that God is in control of the world, as do most Christians, then Global Warming and it's consequences are irrelevant -- By the same logic, I can say that fighting for human rights is irrelevant. In fact, that is exactly what it's saying, as global warming (if it is real) is very much a human rights issue, as it is the wealthy taking advantage of those unable to fend for themselves.

@Elect-In-Training: Your attempt to "put it another way" doesn't add any clarity--only additional confusion.

comment Where do Christians believe the Qur'an came from?
Which Christians? There's no universal "Christian" belief about Islam, or it's history.

comment Is the unpardonable sin unpardonable?
I think the problem with this question is that you're assuming you know what the verse means, when in fact you likely don't. I think a better preliminary question would be "What do Anglicans say is blasphemy of the holy spirit?" or something along those lines. And that will help clarify your false premise, and at the same time likely answer your actual question.

comment Skin color of Adam and Eve
We don't even know if Adam and Eve existed... so speculating about their skin color is a speculation about a speculation.

comment Was the justification for the crusades different from the justification of “Jihad”?
If you were to change this question to say "How did the Crusaders justify the crusades?" or "How did the Crusaders view their conquest as theologically different than Muslim Jihad?" I think the question would be on topic. But as it is, it's asking someone to explain something that doesn't exist. It's based on a false premise.

The Crusaders did not, for the most part, kill "to get to heaven." Whether a few individuals thought they were earning salvation by killing Jews is rather beside the point.

comment Christianity + Science
Do christians reject the cosmos? -- What does that even mean? Are you asking of Christians believe that the universe doesn't exist? Maybe a few crazy ones do...

comment Is the height of first century Judeans evidence against the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about non-Christian history.

comment Does human effort oppose God's grace?
Alright, so you're talking in fairly general terms, not specifically about obtaining salvation.
