comment What happened to the two trees in the Garden of Eden?
I assume you're asking for a YEC perspective, since many OECs, and all(?) theistic evolutionists would argue that neither tree ever literally existed.

comment Why can't Jesus periodically visit Earth?
I think that verse may be a good start. I'm not sure I buy the 'scandal' argument, though. And it's also personal conjecture, so probably doesn't really belong in an answer.

comment Why can't Jesus periodically visit Earth?
There are many who believe Jesus did periodically visit earth prior to his birth. I don't know if that really relates to your question though. I've never heard of any orthodox Christian groups claiming he periodically returns post-ascension.

comment If the Ten Commandments say “thou shalt not kill” how can a Christian fight in a war?
@GregMcNulty: "this context is irrelevant" -- I guess that means you flunked Linguistics class. Context is everything in language.

comment Genesis 9:7 fruitful and increase in number
It's a reasonable question, except for your assertion that we struggle with food shortages. There is, and always has been, more than enough food to feed the entire world's population. There's only a problem of food distribution, brought on by political and economic factors.

comment If rules in the Bible can change, shouldn't Bibles be arranged chronologically so we know which one is right?
Those two stories are in chronological order.

comment Why go to Church?
I don't see how Matthew 6:5 says anything at all about going to church. How is standing in the synagogues and street corners, so that you may be seen by others as you pray, the same as going to church? At most, it's saying "don't go to church to look good."

comment Does the word 'testament' in the titles OT and NT imply the death of the testator in both covenants?
In the context of a will executable upon death, I have always heard it called "the last testament"; which would indicate that "testament" itself has no sense of finality to it.

comment Why do OEC discount the literal interpretation of the book of Genesis?
@fredsbend: I assure you, it has been very thoroughly thought-through, by many Bible scholars. As has the opposing view. The fact that I cannot describe all of that in detail here (due to scope and space limitations) does not mean it has not been thoroughly considered.

@Daniel: Well I don't know about that either... however you want to word it.
