@gideonmarx: What concerns Genesis 1:2?

I suggest your friend was too busy seeing the trees, then, to notice the forest. :)

comment Do mainstream believers believe there was a large interval of time that elapsed between the fall of angels and God speaking creating the universe?
"...an interval of time before God spoke creating our known universe?" This phrase doesn't make sense. The known universe includes the concept of time. How can any "interval of time" (large or small) pass before time exists?

comment What have prominent theologians said about Halloween?
"What have prominent theologians said about..." is a list-question. Too broad.

comment Christian Toleration
There are many examples of Christianity being intollerant. Read the 10 commandments for an easy list of 10 things about which Christianity is not tolerant.

comment Christian Toleration
That "Christianity is tolerant," I believe is a false premise. Although if you clarify what YOU mean by "tolerant," it may clear that up.

comment Christian Toleration
I don't think that question can be answered, because I don't think Christianity is "tolerant" (according to the most common modern usage of that word).

comment Christian Toleration
Specifically: Christianity does claim to be loving (Love your neighbor as yourself). I'm not sure that Christianity claims to be tolerant, however. Christianity is very harsh toward sin.

I came across an interesting article that touches on this.

comment Can humans fall in love with each other in heaven?
You have asked quite a number of questions; somewhat related, but still largely distinct. You've also left it quite open-ended for speculation and personal opinion. I would suggest focusing, perhaps by asking "What does the Bible say about love and sex in heaven?"

I think that is helpful, thanks.

comment Were those who perished in the flood of Noah eternally damned?
In any case, I have edited the question to side-step the issue of global vs. local flood--I think it still asks the question as intended.

comment Were those who perished in the flood of Noah eternally damned?
@CecilBeckum: 1) It's not a question of "how hard would it be"--if the flood, or creation, was a test of God's abilities, creation would have been instantaneous. 2) The same people who believe in either a local or allegorical flood, are the same ones who believe in an allegorical creation account.

comment What is the role of a “Methodist lay pastor”?
Where have you heard of this concept? Context will likely be necessary for a meaningful answer (unless Methodists, unlike the denominations with which I am familiar, have a specific definition of this concept).

comment Would God really demand human sacrifice?
The question is basically asking "Did the Bible lie?" Which might be a useful question, but isn't going to provide a meaningful answer to this question.

comment What Christian groups believe sex was the original sin, and not disobedience?
If sex is a sin, then the first sin, would have been lust... not sex... :P

Can't I say really understand the reason for the photo, but it's a good answer otherwise :)
