comment How do Old Earth Literalist handle the Biblical Earth age?
The accepted answer does not actually answer your question, as it's from the view that the Genesis creation account is not literal.

It's easy to form answers for viewpoints that don't exist. "What do Klingons think about war?"

comment When scripture quotes a non-biblical source, without any opposition of the source, does it imply any endorsement?
I like this question, but I don't believe it's suited for this site; at least not in its present form. There are many different opinions on this--and there are many different ways in which the Bible references extra-biblical sources, and how they strong an endorsement this lends is hotly debated among scholars, and views vary widely from different faith traditions.

I agree with this commentary, but it doesn't answer the question.

comment Does God consider nudity a sin?
I think a strong argument could be made, in fact, that clothing can pose more of a hindrance, in terms of lust, and distraction from worship. If everyone at church was naked, after the first couple weeks of shock, there would be nothing interesting to look at. I'd already know every size, shape, color, of every body party of all 800 people in my church. Any lustful excitement would be lost quickly. By wearing clothes, there's the potential for a "fashion show" every week. Not to mention, a lustful mind is always left with something to imagine, and a fantasy to create, rather than worshiping.

@Mawia: I'm sure they do have attraction to each other; otherwise the culture would die out within a generation. But I'm attracted to women at my church, who wear clothes... so that's not really relevant to anything...

comment How do missionaries communicate to people in foreign countries without previous exposure?
@Anonymous: I don't see how these concerns relate to your question. Your question isn't "Do missionaries all develop native accents in foreign countries?" or "Do missionaries never struggle with learning foreign languages?" What kind of answer do you honestly expect here? This seems like a discussion question, not an SE question.

If you can stay with a pure mind and worship God without any hindrances, it's totally find, but that is impossible -- For you maybe it's impossible. There are many places in the world where people go about daily business naked or very nearly so, and it's no hindrance. Be careful not to turn your own cultural perspective and expectations into laws for other people.

I'm not asking for a discussion; just evidence that this view exists.

comment Is dressing oneself in formal attire on Sundays (Sunday hat and dress) solely an American Christian custom?
It's certainly common to dress to the nines for their first communion in Mexico--and as far as I know, in most or all Catholic churches.

The same way any other expat communicates--they learn the language. Do you have a reason to believe this is not what St. Thomas, or any other missionary did?
