comment Why John the Baptist compared holy spirit with dove?
It wasn't really intended to incite laughter, but to draw attention to the true reason why the dove was likely used; because it's graceful.

comment Why John the Baptist compared holy spirit with dove?
His first draft said "like a wild turkey", but his publisher wanted something that seemed a bit more graceful, so he changed it to "dove."

It's not really a duplicate, but your question is answered in this related question: christianity.stackexchange.com/q/17848/20

comment Are there any churches that claim to be Sola Sciptura that also are pro gay-marriage?
It's important to recognize that "sola scriptura" does not dictate the degree to which one holds scripture to be "literal." One can hold to the concept of sola scriptura, and still take a more relativistic or liberal view of scripture. I suspect your friend was confusing the concepts of sola scriptura and Bible literalism.

comment What is a “child of God” from a scholarly perspective?
Which scholarly perspective? Richard Dawkins is a scholar, and he has a perspective on this question...

comment How do Old Earth Literalist handle the Biblical Earth age?
I'm not sure it is a bad question; that's why I asked for your clarification.

comment How did the Crusades affect the King's power?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about political history, not Christianity.

comment How do Old Earth Literalist handle the Biblical Earth age?
I think this is the only possible answer. There is no way to take a literal interpretation of the Bible and have no other view. It's also an incredibly week position, IMHO, but you get my upvote, because you provide the only logical answer to the question. :)

Both of these views, however, fall outside of a literal interpretation of the Bible, thus do not answer the question.

The accepted answer does not actually answer your question, as it's from the view that the Genesis creation account is not literal.

It's easy to form answers for viewpoints that don't exist. "What do Klingons think about war?"

comment When scripture quotes a non-biblical source, without any opposition of the source, does it imply any endorsement?
I like this question, but I don't believe it's suited for this site; at least not in its present form. There are many different opinions on this--and there are many different ways in which the Bible references extra-biblical sources, and how they strong an endorsement this lends is hotly debated among scholars, and views vary widely from different faith traditions.

I agree with this commentary, but it doesn't answer the question.

comment Does God consider nudity a sin?
I think a strong argument could be made, in fact, that clothing can pose more of a hindrance, in terms of lust, and distraction from worship. If everyone at church was naked, after the first couple weeks of shock, there would be nothing interesting to look at. I'd already know every size, shape, color, of every body party of all 800 people in my church. Any lustful excitement would be lost quickly. By wearing clothes, there's the potential for a "fashion show" every week. Not to mention, a lustful mind is always left with something to imagine, and a fantasy to create, rather than worshiping.

@Mawia: I'm sure they do have attraction to each other; otherwise the culture would die out within a generation. But I'm attracted to women at my church, who wear clothes... so that's not really relevant to anything...

comment How do missionaries communicate to people in foreign countries without previous exposure?
@Anonymous: I don't see how these concerns relate to your question. Your question isn't "Do missionaries all develop native accents in foreign countries?" or "Do missionaries never struggle with learning foreign languages?" What kind of answer do you honestly expect here? This seems like a discussion question, not an SE question.

comment Does God consider nudity a sin?
If you can stay with a pure mind and worship God without any hindrances, it's totally find, but that is impossible -- For you maybe it's impossible. There are many places in the world where people go about daily business naked or very nearly so, and it's no hindrance. Be careful not to turn your own cultural perspective and expectations into laws for other people.

I'm not asking for a discussion; just evidence that this view exists.
