comment How to answer “Why do evil and suffering exist?”
A good person is neither omniscient nor omnipotent, making the analogy fall short.

comment Ark of the Covenant
@gideonmarx: I think a good question could be asked about the Ark of the Covenant along those lines. This is not that question.

comment Ark of the Covenant
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about finding an artifact, and not about Christianity.

comment Ark of the Covenant
This question is asking for speculation. It's impossible to prove a negative. The only way to conclusively answer this question would be to find it.

comment Are only Christians allowed to speak directly to God or can anyone?
You are describing the doctrine called Universal Priesthood and it is widely accepted by most, if not all, protestant churches, and to some degree or another, some other churches as well, as explained in the link.

comment Are only Christians allowed to speak directly to God or can anyone?
"only Christians have a promise that God will listen" -- This needs supporting evidence, "Seek and ye shall find, knock and the door shall be opened" certainly seems to fly in the face of your theory. In fact, if God only promises to hear Christians, then how does a non-Christian become a Christian?

comment Is the enemy a creator relatively the same as God and creator of what?
If you want to know what your pastor meant, ask your pastor. After you understand what he meant, then you can ask a question here about whether it's accurate according to any particular denominational teaching. Currently, you're asking us to speculate about what your pastor meant, and provide interpretation. Which is pretty impossible to do.

comment Cross, holy or not
Whether something is Holy or not, is a matter of opinion. But it sounds like you're really asking for a brief history of how the symbol of the cross came to be recognized as holy, which is much more objective. Am I correct?

comment Is the enemy a creator relatively the same as God and creator of what?
It sounds like you're asking us to expand on an incredibly vague comment your pastor made, which is quite difficult to do. Wouldn't you be better off asking him?

comment Are the Psalms considered official Doctorine by Protestant Anglicans?
What do you mean by "doctrine?" Doctrine is a position. No text can ever be doctrine. It can describe doctrine, and doctrine can be taught about a text. But it is a categorical error to say that Palms are, or even could be, doctrine. Do you really mean to be asking if the Psalms are considered canon?

comment Does the Bible support Christian faith-based solutions to drug addiction?
Drug rehab centers didn't exist when the Bible was written. What kind of answer are you hoping for?

comment Why has “Devil's advocate” office been changed?
There are at least two distinct questions here: 1) Why was the office eliminated. 2) Did this result in an increase in canonization?

@davidbrainerd: It's simply an Anthropomorphism.

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.
