comment When did knowledge of Christ's sacrifice become necessary for salvation?
I'm not asking for judgement against a specific person, but for understanding of the principle at play here. If the answer is simply "we cannot know" then I suppose that's a valid answer, though.

comment When did knowledge of Christ's sacrifice become necessary for salvation?
So your answer is then "I don't know"? :) Also I don't think having the ability to save someone is a prerequisite for knowing if they are saved or savable. I can watch a man drowning, and know he will die, without having the ability to swim to save him.

So are you saying that the moment he was raised, the object of one's faith must have changed from 'future work' to 'past work'? And by extension, someone who died at 8am Easter Sunday would have been doomed if they had not yet heard of the resurrection?

comment What is unique about Christianity?
While the historical accuracy of Christianity may be greater than that of other religions, this clearly is not an answer to my question, seeking fundamental differences, and in fact lists historicity as one common theme among many religions.

How do we know that Revelation is talking about the end of the world?

comment According to the Bible, do animals have souls?
The trinity is not three parts of a whole, in the same way that body, soul, and spirit make up a human. So I think that analogy is inappropriate. Also, the distinction between plant and animal is not the existence or absence of a soul, but their cellular structure and metabolism.. Many microscopic animals I suspect do not have 'souls' in any meaningful way.

comment What does Revelation 6:12 mean?
1) Revelation is very metaphorical. 2) There are solar eclipses "all the time", but they don't stop the seasons. 3) I really have no idea what Revelation 6:12 is talking about :)

comment Why did Jesus protest before performing his first miracle?
The "plain reading" of much of scripture is what has lead to much heartache--the Jews are still waiting for a Messiah who fulfills a "plain reading" of scripture. I think we know that Jesus often spoke in ways that were intentionally unclear to certain people.

That seems like a pretty weak distinction... at any rate, it's nothing close to a "fundamental difference" I'm looking for in this questions.
