comment Confused About - Judism - Christanity - Hebrew Bible - Old Testament - New Testament!
First understand, there are no unbiased explanations--of anything! It's literally impossible. Every author has a bias. That said, the best place to learn about the stories you're asking about is in their primary sources, which is the Old Testament. Specifically, the book of Exodus.

comment What does Jesus's life from the Bible tell us about the kind of diet he had. Did he promote any particular kind of diet?
We know Jesus promulgated fish and loaves, bread and wine. That's about all we know directly about his diet. It seems he had other motives, than to mandate what people eat.

comment Are there irreconcilable differences between Acts and the Pauline epistles?
@OneFace: If I have to read another question for yours to make sense, your question is incomplete. What's more, that doesn't answer my question: From which perspective do you want an answer?

comment Where does the Bible support the idea of church budgets, for those traditions that think it does?
@OneFace: I'm sure many churches operate without budgets, but that's irrelevant to the question you asked. Your question asserts that there is at least one church that believes there is "Biblical support" for church budgets. I rather doubt this is true.

According to whom?

What evidence do you have that any church has this view?

comment When and why did the Day-Age and Gap theories fall out of popularity?
This might be the beginning of an appropriate answer, but I'd want evidence more than your opinion that "plenty of people" subscribe to DAT and GT. "Plenty" isn't even a meaningful term. "Plenty" of people doesn't make a majority, and a majority, or a sizable minority, is implied in "popularity," which the question asks. That said, I take this answer as an indication that the question ought to be more precise, so I'll work on updating that as time permits. Meanwhile, if you can expand this answer to not rely on weasel words like "plenty," I'd be grateful.

comment Are you suppose to tithe on retirement income
Welcome to the site! We're glad you decided to participate. Unfortunately, this is not a question we can answer, as there are many conflicting opinions on how, and even if, to tithe. You would do well to seek the council of a trusted Christian in your local congregation or community to discern how you can beat tithe in your situation.

comment Can you help illuminate part of this Psalm? (103)
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about English language grammar.

comment Can you help illuminate part of this Psalm? (103)
It's almost more just about English grammar. Either way, it doesn't seem like it fits here.

comment Intertestamental usage of the LXX
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is not about Christianity.

comment Basis for belief that Christians will skip judgement
"What is the Biblical basis for the belief that Christians will skip any kind of Judgment?" There is no basis for this. And nobody (except perhaps Atheists, who don't believe in judgment at all) believes this, either.

comment Historically what percentage of the Catholic Church's liturgical function was done in Latin?
This article talks a bit about the history of Latin Liturgy in the Catholic church--and touches on why it would be so difficult to estimate the answer to this question, too.

comment Historically what percentage of the Catholic Church's liturgical function was done in Latin?
That's probably an unanswerable question. Although it might be answerable with some reasonable estimates. But in essence, we don't have much information about early church history (how often did churches meet? How many churches were there? What language(s) did they speak? Were they "Catholic?").

comment Historically what percentage of the Catholic Church's liturgical function was done in Latin?
Are you asking, "Which percentage of Catholic services in 1516 were done in Latin?" or "From 33AD to 1516AD, what percentage of Catholic services were done in Latin?"

comment How does the Catholic Church justify discouraging romantic freedoms of homosexuals?
How does the stated question differ from "Why does the Catholic Church consider homosexual sex to be sinful?" How would the answers to these questions differ? And what is your "deeper fundamental question"?

comment Is it possible to be Christian but not interpret the religion as fact?
I am quite familiar with that idea, but that doesn't clarify anything. If anything, it suggests the question is making an egregious over-simplification to suggest something as complex and nuanced as a religion could be relegated to a single concept that could be considered either "fact" or "non-fact."

comment How does the Catholic Church justify discouraging romantic freedoms of homosexuals?
My question is distinct from this one, in that it's not predicted on my personal opinion. My personal opinion isn't even mentioned in my question. Your question reads as if the reason it exists is to promote and defend your personal opinion. They are day and night different, in my opinion.

comment Is it possible to be Christian but not interpret the religion as fact?
This question doesn't really make sense. What would it mean to "interpret the religion as fact"? "Is it possile to be a Christian, and not believe every word of the Bible is literally true?" The answer to this is obviously yes, so I'm guessing you mean something else. Do you mean "Is it possible to be a Christian, and not believe Christianity is in fact a religion?" (probably not, but that's one interpretation of your question).

comment How does the Catholic Church justify discouraging romantic freedoms of homosexuals?
It's your question. If you don't like my suggestions, it's no skin off my back. But your question still seems too opinionated for me to remove my down vote, and it still seems like a repetitive wall-of-text to me. But do as yiu wish.
