comment Is Christianity functionally polytheistic?
At first I wasn't sure; now I believe this is actually a very interesting question. rpeg's comments on my answer have clarified what was already stated in his question: He's not claiming that Christianity "is in fact polytheistic," he's asking if it functions that way, at a macro level. Perhaps the question could use some clarification, but I do believe it is a very interesting question at the core.

comment Is Christianity functionally polytheistic?
@rpeg: And my point is (I should probably edit my answer to reflect this more clearly) that it does not act as polytheistic, because no adherent to any Christian faith sends "greeting cards to multiple gods." Even if we assume that each Christian sect worships a different god (which I don't believe is true), to be "functionally polytheistic", individuals would have to behave as if there were multiple gods.

@rpeg: Do the twins in my example "functionally" have multiple mothers? Would they each send a Mother's Day card to two addresses? No. Do me and my coworker "functionally" have multiple bosses? No.

comment Can the Word of God and God's wisdom be beneficial to an unbeliever?
Thanks. I'm usually not shy about editing, but since that would have actually changed the meaning of your post, I was hesitant. :)

comment What “fundamentalist” beliefs are most commonly rejected by “moderate” Christians?
A useful background on Fundamentalism, but it fails to answer the actual question. Although I think the fault probably lies in the question more than the answer, as I believe the question is far too broad to be answered without being focused much more first.

A fair point... it does at least hint at it, doesn't it?

The issue is that the word translated as "carpenter" isn't actually that specific in the original language.

comment Is God capable of ever doing wrong?
@rpeg: The point being made here is that "right" is defined in relation to God, not the other way around. Therefore God cannot, by definition, do "wrong" because anything God does is, by definition, "right." Although I thik the answer needs to be fleshed out a bit, and hopefully include some scripture reference.

comment In which denominations is naturism unacceptable?
This doesn't really seem to answer the question. It's primarily an opinion piece (not that I disagree with the opinion posted). There are many indigenous tribal peoples where standard clothing is at a minimum, to the point that the majority of people are completely "naked" by western standards. Would you say that these people would have to learn to wear clothes before they could become Christians?

comment Does God care about who we were?
@Waggers: It is common in certain circles (and especially in Jewish ones) to never speak or spell the name of G-d, except when directly addressing Him, out of respect. You can read more over at Jewish Life & Learning, or see this post.

comment Does god give us a destined fate?
I think you'll need to provide a theological framework in which to answer this question. There are Christian doctrines on both sides of this debate. As such, it will be impossible to provide a "correct answer" as your question is worded.
