Questions about God's motivation have been determined to be off topic.

comment The difference between how the Holy Spirit and Son “proceed” from the Father
I see multiple possible questions here, and I can't tell which one(s) you are actually asking. 1) The title question ('Does only the Holy Spirit proceed from the Father?') is off-topic as a "Truth Question". 2) What is the difference between how the HS and the Son proceed--probably also a truth question. 3) Why is it commonly confessed... Probably opinion-based. If you were to ask why only the HS is mentioned in this way in the nicene-creed that would probably be on-topic. If you were asking about the differences in the usage of the Greek words in various contexts, that would probably fit BH

comment Are there any traditions or schools of thought that track Jesus' movements?
I have downvoted since this doesn't actually answer the question, but rather only mentions that an answer exists.

comment Does the Bible say we will die sinning?
This question appears to be off-topic because it seeking a proof text for a personal opinion.

comment According to most Protestants, did Jesus intend one correct interpretation for his parables?
I think this depends a lot on what you mean--and even on whom you ask. I think many people would say that many of Jesus' parables made more than one point. Would that be multiple "correct interpretations"? Or one, multi-faceted interpretation?

comment Did God create people to be prophets, or did He choose people to be prophets based on good works?
I think the gift of prophecy is distinct from the title of prophet. Presumably a prophet will have the gift of prophecy, but does having the gift of prophecy automatically make one a prophet, according to Catholic teaching?

comment What, historically, was the age of accountability for Latter-Day-Saints before D&C 68:27?
Speculation is not welcome in answers here.

comment What are the common Protestant interpretations of Luke 1:48 (KJV)?
I don't think "sola scriptura" is a sufficiently narrow focus, considering that means the vast majority of Christian viewpoints.

comment How does the Pope's recent evolution comments line up with the Gen 1; 1-5 text?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is a rant against evolution posing as a question.

comment Why did God instruct the Israelites to perform so many different types of sacrificial offerings?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about the motivations of God.

comment What is the Biblical basis for the belief that God foreordained the fall of Adam and Eve?
I think you answered your own question with the verse you quoted.

comment Is there a verse about “big” and “small” lies being the same in God's kingdom?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is making the Bible say what you want, rather than learning what the Bible says.

comment What is an overview of the schools of thought regarding the soteriological status of alien life forms?
@Beestocks: Well we know some angels "need" saving (that is, they're separated from God's grace...) That doesn't mean they will receive salvation (or want it). But it means they're in a state such that asking the question at least makes sense.

comment What is an overview of the schools of thought regarding the soteriological status of alien life forms?
@FMS: Revelation mentions all sorts of weird creatures that certainly aren't earthlings... so they must be aliens :)

comment What is the origin and development of the calender of the Western Church?
This is too broad. Each of these holidays/seasons has a unique answer (although some are intertwined). I suggest asking for each one separately (and some already have answers on this site).

comment Why does the Bible talk only about the people of Israel?
of course it can't be true -- why not?

comment How were the quarter-millennium anniversaries of the resurrection of Jesus commemorated?
Well the RC church didn't exist yet in 250AD... so 500 would be the first one with the possibility of an answer.

comment In whose name was Jesus baptized?
The "Aaronic priesthood" is not a concept that (to my knowledge) exists outside of LDS theology. Such an answer would be appropriate if the question were asking for an LDS perspective on baptismal authority.

comment In whose name was Jesus baptized?
Baptism, of various forms, did exist prior to John the Baptist--but as a pagan ritual, not (principally) among Jews. Your entire argument is "JtB had authority from God to baptize due to having priestly authority." Unless priests actually had authority to baptize, your argument falls short. And as you have now explained, there's no direct evidence that he, or any priest, had such express "authority."
