comment Are Left handers servants of the devil?
"do the right thing" is an accident of the English language, and is something that doesn't carry to most other languages.

comment If God's nature includes being without origin how is it his Son, with an origin, is equal to that nature?
This question is based on a false premise, which has already been addressed. The Son does not have an origin, the Son is also eternal. See here for instance.

comment What is the thesis of the church towards asexuality?
@Nick: That's an improvement. Now to focus the remaining question: Is there a specific Christian tradition from which you would specifically like an answer?

comment What is the thesis of the church towards asexuality?
I suggest removing the masturbation question, and focusing the other to a specific church tradition (for instance, Catholics, Baptists, etc)

comment What is the thesis of the church towards asexuality?
There are three problems with this question. 1) It's asking two questions (a: What does the church say about asexuality, b: Is masturbation a sin?) 2) The first question (a) is too broad, as it doesn't specify which from which church tradition an answer is sought, and 3) The second question (b) is off-topic for this site, as it's a "Truth question"

comment What about the “beforelife”?
1. You are making several claims without providing references. 2. There are multiple concepts and words which translate into the English word "soul". I don't think any of them are believed to be "eternal" in the sense of having neither a beginning nor end, according to most Christian doctrine.

comment What about the “beforelife”?
It's better, but there's still no reason to think that "the Soul would have no beginning and no end". God could create the soul prior to the body; that in no way implies the soul is eternal.

comment What about the “beforelife”?
1. it is really asking did man 's Souls exist before creation That's not true at all. Human spirits could have existed prior to birth/conception, without existing prior to creation. 2. To believe that would to elevate man to the same status as God That also doesn't follow logically.

comment Is there really a Catholic “blessing for bacon?”
I think #3 is the most important part of this question; and depending on that answer, the rest of the question may be moot.

@aceinthehole: "universal in that narrow sense".. haha... I love it. But I understand what you mean.

comment What about the “beforelife”?
Most Christian denominations teach that there explicitly is no "beforelife," in part based on the verse in this answer. They consider creation/formation to be when the person comes into existence; not just the body.

comment Is there consensus on the age of human civilization?
@aceinthehole: I suppose that's possible. But I still contend that anyone who believes the world is > 60k years old has no reason to believe in a global flood. Why would someone take the flood account literally, but not the creation account? Those who take one literally, take the other literally, and vice versa.

comment Is there a converse of “judge not, lest you be judged?”
I think this question demonstrates a serious misunderstanding of "Judge not, lest ye be judged." This verse is against hypocrisy; thus the supposed "converse" fits within the correct understanding of the verse already.

comment What are the main theological frameworks for interpreting bible texts?
@SomeFreeMason: I don't think CecilBeckum's point was that this question belongs on BH, but that BH is one part of the answer to the question. This question clearly does not belong on BH, as it's about Biblical interpretation.

comment Is there consensus on the age of human civilization?
@aceinthehole: A "genetic choke point" only exists if you believe in a global flood. If you believe the world is 60k years old, you almost certainly don't believe in a global flood. :)

comment Is there consensus on the age of human civilization?
@aceinthehole: The question is asking if there is a consensus--that would mean among everyone. He wants to know if the debate between YECs and Evolutionists revolves only around the age of the planet and universe, or also the age of humanity. At least that's how I take it.

comment Is there consensus on the age of human civilization?
@CharlesAlsobrook: Well, an ambiguous question does not necessarily mean the answer is "there is no consensus." That's the contrast I'm trying to make.

comment Is there consensus on the age of human civilization?
@CharlesAlsobrook: I think Eclipse's point was that the question was ambiguous. It asked about human civilization, but then also seemed to ask about "human history" (which could include pre-civilization). The answer to the OP's question depends only on what the OP meant.

comment What are the main theological frameworks for interpreting bible texts?
This is a list question; there are many "correct" answers, according to whom you ask, making it a poor question for SE.
