comment Is there a scriptural example of a non-believer speaking on God's behalf?
I think this is a good answer, but it would be much better with scriptural references to the various persons and stories you mention.

The original title was opinion based. I think after my update (of which I hope you approve) it probably isn't any longer.

comment Is there any evidence to support a preference for second-career pastors coming disproportionately from IT?
One of my (IT) coworkers is now a pastor in his church, and slowing moving toward full-time there. I also recently read an (IT) book by a pastor... it's an interesting question.

@AffableGeek: I'm not sure how you got all of that out of my comment...

comment How is the view of guaranteed salvation for infants justified?
@fredsbend: The question is asking explicitly for opinions: "Is this view unjust?" It's a truth question. Adding the scope "according to those who believe that infants go to heaven" doesn't help. If anything, it makes the scope so narrow so as not to exist at all!! ("According to those who believe infants go to heaven, is are they, themselves, wrong?")

comment What are the fruits of the Spirit?
There are many lists of "fruits of the spirit", and none of them is meant to be exhaustive.

comment How well supported is the interpretation of Genesis 18 by Rublev's Icon of the Holy Trinity?
This question is very broad, since you ask for 4 distinct answers. Can you narrow the focus by asking about a single denomination?

comment How can a non-physical God create a physical universe?
How many physical beings do you know which can create physical matter? To create physical matter requires being beyond physical matter, doesn't it? Anyway, this is a question of philosophy, and not really on-topic here.

comment During creation the Bible says, God saw that various things were 'good'. Did He not know they were going to be good?
+1 for using my cake example. haha

comment Are humans above angels?
It's also aserted by various Bible study materials such as this one, but that doesn't seem to be strictly Biblical.

comment Are humans above angels?
@AffableGeek: The Voice refers to humans as the crown of God's creation, but I'm not sure how much theological water that holds :)

@AffableGeek: I can't remember, and google isn't helping, so I may be mis-remembering.

comment Are humans above angels?
Isn't humanity called the "crown of creation," presumably placing man "above" angels?

comment Are humans above angels?
What do you mean by "above"? Closer to God? More intelligent? Physically higher? This question is unanswerable without some definitions.

Thanks. I like it. +1 from me!

comment Catholic Exegesis: The Cleansing of the Temple
I think your first question is a reasonable one. I think the second one, aside from being very unclear what you mean by "reconsider", is is 100% "opinion based" and should probably be removed from the question.

I once baked a cake. And then I tasted it and it was delicious. Of course, I knew it would be delicious before I baked it, because I know I'm a good cook. Does that mean I can't enjoy my cake? Of course not. Your question seems to be based on some very strange understanding of "good".

comment Jesus' sacrifice covers our eternal hell?
@HandofDon: 1) This is not a "conversation" site. 2) You can still "converse" (to the minimal extent permitted here) once the question is closed.

comment Do Mormons practice “soaking,” and is it an officially sanctioned activity?
@ShemSeger: The question is about "Mormons." If the answer is "it's a BYU thing" that's fine... and doesn't probably need much more elaboration. :)
