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.

comment During creation the Bible says, God saw that various things were 'good'. Did He not know they were going to be good?
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. :)

comment Do Mormons practice “soaking,” and is it an officially sanctioned activity?
@ShemSeger: I should have asked why "motionless sex" is viewed (by this culture) as more "moral." I don't necissarily expect you to know the answer to that aspect, but if you do, I'd love to know.

comment Do Mormons practice “soaking,” and is it an officially sanctioned activity?
@ShemSeger: Of course it came up as a way of mocking Mormons. It strikes me as so off-the-wall that I wanted to give some Mormons a chance to defend themselves. It will also be nice to have a good answer I can point my mocking friends to.

Is this an official LDS view?

comment The dove at the Baptism of Jesus
@usario: Was it a "mystical experience?" I suppose that depends on what you mean by "mystical."

comment The dove at the Baptism of Jesus
@usario: When it says "I saw the Spirit ... like a dove", it certainly seems reasonable to me that it appeared as a physical being. At the very least, it's not obvious that it didn't.

@usario: That's what it says. What is your question?

comment What is the message of the Gospel according to Theistic Evolutionists?
Perhaps there's some more specific question you're really getting at?

comment What is the message of the Gospel according to Theistic Evolutionists?
"Theistic Evolutionists" is a category that is almost as broad as "Christian" as non-theistic evolutionists make up a small minority of Christians. That means that the answer to this question is literally as broad as "What is the message of the Gospel according to Christians?" which is obviously too broad.

comment Are my feelings altered when I enter the Kingdom of Heaven?
This question is very broad, and is based on what I believe are a number of false premises. As such, I suggest breaking the question down into smaller questions which can be asked individually. For instance "How can a person be happy in Heaven knowing that their loved ones are in hell?"

comment Are we supposed to ASK for wisdom or SEEK it--or are they the same thing?
The seem to me as synonymous. One perhaps expounds further on the topic than the other, but I don't see any contradiction or meaningful difference at all.
