comment How can one explain the apparent contradiction between Ex 31:17 and Is 40:28
@davidbrainerd: It's simply an Anthropomorphism.

comment Why are bibles sold for profit?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about business practices, not about Christianity.

comment Does God require us to have faith because Adam and Eve sinned?
I think this needs additional scope to be defined, too... according to whom? There are many different views on how faith, obedience, and even original sin, work.

comment Was Adam mortal before he partook of the tree of knowledge of good and evil?
There is another common possibility: Adam never existed, and the story is a metaphor.

comment Did Protestants consider transubstantiation to be idol worship?
I think it would make a lot more sense to ask "Why did/do protestants reject Transubstantiation?" As it is, this question is quite leading, and as far as I can tell, completely unfounded.

comment According to the Protestant faith, was God grieved when He cast Satan out of Heaven?
@rhetorician: Why don't you make that an answer, then, rather than a comment?

comment Does God have free will?
Do you have some theological sources to back up your answer? It sounds like personal opinion (not to say it's wrong, though), and we try to stay away from opinions on this site.

comment How can a Christian effectively explain the seeming contradiction between Gen 1:31 and Gen 6:6?
That's not what the verses say. The first verse says he was satisfied with creation. The second verse says that after men rebelled, he was dissatisfied. I suppose you could pull in the whole omniscience thing and ask "Didn't God know men would rebel?" but that question has already been answered on this site.

comment How can a Christian effectively explain the seeming contradiction between Gen 1:31 and Gen 6:6?
I see no contradiction between these verses. Also, a tiny minority of Christians hold a strict "biblical inerrancy" view.

The heart of the accusation -- what accusation?

comment Why did Jesus turn water into wine?
Throughout much of human history, one of the chief ways of making water safe to drink has been through fermentation--making wine, beer, or other lightly fermented drinks out of it. This typically kills harmful pathogens, and results in only a slight amount of alcohol (much less than most modern beer or wine). This is likely what they had at the wedding feast. Jesus could have said "There's no reason for you all to be drinking wine. Let me just purify this water for you instead." and they would have looked at him like he was crazy, the miracle would not have been seen as a miracle...

comment Has God ever commanded or instructed anything that He himself did not also satisfy?
If the instruction is "Build an ark," then not building the ark violates the instructions.

comment What scientific arguments are there to support Young Earth Creationism?
This question has two possible answers. The most obvious one, touted by the entire scientific community, and even a large and growing number of YECs, is "There is none." The second possible answer is far too broad to provide here, as it would be a laundry list of theories and models which attempt to fit a young earth into a (slightly or severely) adjusted scientific understanding. Theories that fit the latter category are easily found by google. The former answer is more one of philosophy.

Lucifer are just the planet venus -- this doesn't make any sense to me. What do you mean?

comment What did Jesus mean by 'take up your cross and follow me'?
To take up your cross and follow Jesus was a command to do exactly that -- I don't have a cross, so I can't do exactly that. Was it really meant literally, or was it metaphor for something?

comment Keep the law OR nail to the cross?
I think he doesn't want us to do that isn't really a suitable answer... do you have something firmer than your own opinion to offer?
