comment Why do people say the holy spirit is a spirit?
So your question is: "Why does the English language refer to spirits as people, rather than objects?" Seems pretty clearly off-topic.

comment Was Mohammed a Christian?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about the history of Islam.

comment Were musical instruments alowed in the temple holy and holy of holys?
Musical instruments may have been allowed in the Holy of Holies, but musicians weren't.

comment How well-accepted are Thomas Paine's views about the Bible being against monarchy?
How would someone answer this question? What is a reasonable measure of "how well accepted" an interpretation is?

comment Should Christians uphold unjust laws that are not overtly immoral?
@curiousdannii: That's the beginning of a (nearly duplicate) answer, not really a comment.

comment Was 'Jesus and the woman taken in adultery' in St. John a later addition, and does this invalidate infallibility?
This is two questions (1. was it a later addition, 2. does it invalidate infallibility). The first is a good question. The second is primarily opinion based.

comment Why did the Jews ask the Romans to kill Jesus, but they killed Esteban by themselves?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about Jewish history outside the scope of Christian doctrine.

comment Does the Bible suggest that the earth is round?
@curiousdannii: I think it's clear that the question is asking for verses that might be interpreted one way, which is within scope. The fact that the question is from 2011 suggests that it could possibly use some editing to more squarely fall within site guidelines, but it seems an edit is more in order than a VtC, considering the clear intent of the question.

comment Why do some Christians think it's not a sin to charge interest?
@algiogia: I read that. You know what "archaic" means, right?

comment Why do some Christians think it's not a sin to charge interest?
@algiogia: a high amount of interest, an unconscionable or exorbitant rate or amount of interest, and especially : the lending of money at exorbitant interest rates are not the same thing as simply interest.

comment Why is our righteousness as filthy rags?
"how does Christianity address this?" is never a useful question in the context of this site, because Christianity is a vast sea of opinion. You need to provide a scope. Or, in this case, it might be a better fit for Biblical Hermeneutics, if you change the question to ask for an explanation of the terminology, rather than asking for interpretation.

comment Are we saved by Grace Alone or Faith Alone?
Salvation and Justification are not (according to adherents of the 5 solas) the same thing.

comment What power do spirits have that resurrected beings do not?
I don't know if this applies to Mormon doctrine, but my understanding of mainstream Christian doctrine is that only God is omnipresent, and other spirits (demons/angels, disembodies spirits of humans) are not.

comment Has the Catholic Church outlined specific Biblical passages which should not be taken literally?
Closely related (and certainly relevant to the examples you mentioned): christianity.stackexchange.com/q/6490/20

comment Does the Bible explain why God chose Israel?
Think of it this way. Bob tells Alice, "I will give you a new car." Later Bob gives Alice a new car, and Alice asks, "Why did you give me this car?" "Because I promised to" is not a satisfactory answer.
