comment What is the basis for an omnipotent God allowing imperfect transmission of his Word?
@davidbrainerd: Interesting point... although I'm quite sure I disagree with it.

comment What are all the different species of intelligent beings that God has created?
"Angel" is not an ontological category like "God," "human," or "cherubim"--it is a job title.

comment Is there a biblical basis for the division caused by theology?
@Jesse: That's an interesting question, and one likely worth discussing. But it would need to be better framed to fit into the Q&A format of this site.

theology, which to my understanding is really just piling a lot of non-biblical ideas into what we can learn from Scripture -- Your understanding is grossly inaccurate. Theology is, simply, the study of God.

comment Can Trinity be taught only from Bible?
@Gulshan: "natural meaning" is a pretty arbitrary (and therefore meaningless) standard to use when interpreting any language. Ask any linguist. Words carry meaning by common consensus, and that consensus changes (over time, by region, by context, etc).

comment What is the basis for the belief that Eve was created on the sixth day, like Adam?
@Bye: I have recently learned that an increasing number of Christians believe the story of creation is allegorical -- I think it's the opposite: A number approaching 100% of Christians used to think it was allegorical, it's only in recent history (specifically as a reaction against Darwinism) that the concept of a literal creation account was even taken seriously.

comment If the Ten Commandments say “thou shalt not kill” how can a Christian fight in a war?
I have edited this question to make the implied scope a bit more explicit, so that the question more closely adheres to our current standards.
