@Anonymous: My point was: This should be asked as two questions.

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?

comment How can the Bible say God was refreshed if he never gets weary?
@davidbrainerd: It's simply an Anthropomorphism.

comment Why are bibles sold for profit?
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.

comment Was Adam mortal before he partook of the tree of knowledge of good and evil?
There is another common possibility: Adam never existed, and the story is a metaphor.

comment Did Protestants consider transubstantiation to be idol worship?
I think it would make a lot more sense to ask "Why did/do protestants reject Transubstantiation?" As it is, this question is quite leading, and as far as I can tell, completely unfounded.

comment According to the Protestant faith, was God grieved when He cast Satan out of Heaven?
@rhetorician: Why don't you make that an answer, then, rather than a comment?

comment Does God have free will?
Do you have some theological sources to back up your answer? It sounds like personal opinion (not to say it's wrong, though), and we try to stay away from opinions on this site.

comment How can a Christian effectively explain the seeming contradiction between Gen 1:31 and Gen 6:6?
That's not what the verses say. The first verse says he was satisfied with creation. The second verse says that after men rebelled, he was dissatisfied. I suppose you could pull in the whole omniscience thing and ask "Didn't God know men would rebel?" but that question has already been answered on this site.

comment How can a Christian effectively explain the seeming contradiction between Gen 1:31 and Gen 6:6?
I see no contradiction between these verses. Also, a tiny minority of Christians hold a strict "biblical inerrancy" view.

The heart of the accusation -- what accusation?

comment Why did Jesus turn water into wine?
Throughout much of human history, one of the chief ways of making water safe to drink has been through fermentation--making wine, beer, or other lightly fermented drinks out of it. This typically kills harmful pathogens, and results in only a slight amount of alcohol (much less than most modern beer or wine). This is likely what they had at the wedding feast. Jesus could have said "There's no reason for you all to be drinking wine. Let me just purify this water for you instead." and they would have looked at him like he was crazy, the miracle would not have been seen as a miracle...

comment Has God ever commanded or instructed anything that He himself did not also satisfy?
If the instruction is "Build an ark," then not building the ark violates the instructions.
