"Almighty" sounds a lot like "Omnipotent" to me.

comment Who might replace Rowan Williams as Archbishop of Canterbury?
Why is this a good question for this site? It strikes me as too localized, not to mention completely speculative. "Who will replace John Doe as the pastor of First Baptist Church of Anytown, USA?" surely wouldn't be considered on topic, so why this one? meta.christianity.stackexchange.com/q/1005/20

comment Is it more important that a worship service be contemplative or instructive, and how do we know?
I don't think a "worship service" is ever really "instructive." True, contemporary church services often incorporate both worship and instruction, but that doesn't make instruction a function of a worship service, nor worship a function of a teaching service. It's just by convention and out of convenience that they're done together, and it's only an error in terminology that a sermon is ever called a "worship service."

comment Does the act of sex constitute marriage in God's eyes?
Even if fornication isn't accurate, adultery between a married and unmarried person wouldn't be possible (at least not in cultures where polygamy is practiced).

comment Is there any Biblical argument against using “cuss words”?
@Eric: Probably vote to close it, since there are answers on this question, too. Then mods have the option to merge the two questions later if they want, or at least there's still a record of these answers somewhere.

comment Is there any Biblical argument against using “cuss words”?
"Swear words" is a constantly moving target. A question I asked on an unrelated SE site reminded me of this recently. What in tarnat**n would I do if I couldn't call my friend a nincomp**p?

comment What narrative purpose does the Flood story fulfill?
Your answer reminds me of the description of Aslan from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (which of course is intended as an allegory for God in the first place) when one of the children asks Mr. Beaver, "Is Aslan tame?" and the reply was (paraphrased) "Tame!? Certainly not! But he is good."

comment Are Many Christians postmodern in their approach to modesty?
@aceinthehole: A good point. Prohibitions against dancing are quite common (although much less than they were, say, 20-30 years ago) which I believe goes further to show that the scope of the question needs clarification.

comment Are Many Christians postmodern in their approach to modesty?
@MarcGravell: Even among mainstream denominations, I think there is a tendency toward greater modesty among Christians (or probably any religion) than non-religious. The church groups I've been apart of, for instance, usually require females to wear one-piece bathing suits at church camp events. And many/most Christian schools (all those I am familiar with, anyway) have dress codes that are more strict/modest than in a comparable public or non-religious private school.
