comment How does mainstream Christianity's perception of Heaven differ from the Mormon perception of the Terrestrial Kingdom?
Mainstream Christianity knows very little about Heaven. Popular culture "knows" much more. I'm not sure this is an answerable question.

comment Why is the name Jehovah not used more in the Book of Mormon?
As long as you're looking for Mormon answers, I think the question is reasonably scoped and on-topic. The most likely non-Mormon answer would be only opinion, and is probably something like "Because Joseph Smith wrote the book of his own accord, modeling after an at-the-time modern English translation of the Bible, which didn't use that word very much." But that would clearly contradict the official Mormon teaching, and is unprovable, making such an answer off-topic here.

Both believe in a god obviously.

comment If someone had the staff of Moses today, would it still work?
It would probably still work as a walking aide.

This doesn't answer the question.

comment Why does Judaism celebrate Sabbath on Saturday and most Christians celebrate Sabbath on Sunday?
@fredsbend: Yes, of course I do know that and I had made the connection between 'sábado' and 'sabbath'. I'd never made the connection with 'domingo', but of course you are correct. Portuguese also uses 'sábado' and 'domingo', and I'm sure many other languages do too.

comment Who are the man child and the woman in Revelation 12?
The only specific answers to your specific questions are opinions.

comment Who are the man child and the woman in Revelation 12?
Yes, it's specific. And it's asking for opinions. It's off-topic here.

comment Who are the man child and the woman in Revelation 12?
Please don't respond with a symbolic answer -- Most people consider the book of Revelation to be symbolic, so an answer excluding symbolism means you probably don't actually want an answer. But more importantly, we can't answer this question, since it's asking for opinion. It's also too broad, since you've asked multiple questions in a single post.

comment Ezekiel Temple and Prophecy
Your title asks if it's an unfulfillable prophecy, your question asks if it's an unfulfilled prophecy. These are entirely different. Which do you mean?

comment When was the idea of all humans worth equal incorporated into Lutheran Christianity?
@LCIII: I suppose it's a fair question what is meant by "worth" but it seems apparent to me that it most likely means a positive aspect of worth, not a negative one :)

comment When was the idea of all humans worth equal incorporated into Lutheran Christianity?
I think the concept was incorporated into Christianity from before Christianity was a thing. Jesus of Nazareth appeared to live by and teach that principle (and Christianity was formed, arguably, after his death and resurrection).

comment When was the idea of all humans worth equal incorporated into Lutheran Christianity?
Everyone is equally worthy...of condemnation and punishment from God -- this clearly is not addressing the spirit or intent of the question. And the Bible is full of examples which enforce the concept brought up in the question (from being made in the image of God, to the examples of Christ interacting with the "unclean", to commandments to love our neighbor as yourself, paired with "who is my neighbor", etc). So I have to -1 this answer.

comment What are the biblical arguments that the Bible canon is NOT closed?
This strikes me as a question that is literally impossible to answer. The Bible can no better argue that it is complete than an alert person can argue that they are sleeping, or a living person can argue that they are dead. The existence argument itself would be the proof that the argument is false.

comment What is the meaning of this part of 2 Timothy 1:3?
I thought Biblical Hermeneutics are about translation and what words mean in the root language -- But that's exactly what you're asking.

comment Why are the Psalms numbered this way in some Catholic Bibles?
I would agree that this question would be better with more information, such as a photo. I had no idea what you were talking about either, but the answer below cleared up the doubt.

comment What are the steps for a non-Catholic Christian to become a Catholic?
As re-worded, this question is on topic (although likely too broad), but still a duplicate.

comment Regarding Christian celebrations
@201044: The reason we can't address your question is because it's asking for open ended discussion about personal opinions. It's not because it's a tough question (which it may or may not be). There is no "correct" answer to your question. There is no official Christian belief about your question. This is why we can't address it.

comment Has there been a reported instance of a Christian with near-death experience who has testified seeing figures of other religions?
@FMS: I understand that it might be significant if a Christian NDE actually witnessed someone from another religion. I'm not arguing with that. I am arguing with the idea that this question has any ability to answer whether such a claim is legitimate. My point is simply that any idiot can make a claim--and this question has no ability to verify the veracity of such a claim.

comment Has there been a reported instance of a Christian with near-death experience who has testified seeing figures of other religions?
The answer to this question is almost certainly yes, since it is absolutely trivial to report a near-death experience, and the only acceptable definition of "Christian" on this site is so broad. Literally anyone could say "I had a near-death-Experience in which I saw the Buddah, and I'm a Christian." and that would answer your question in the affirmative. Not a very interesting question, IMO.
