comment Why is it that so many Churches have a problem with Halloween but not with the other pagan holidays?
To the downvoters and close-voters: This question really isn't opinion-based. Sure, there are many opinions about Halloween, but that's not what the question is asking. The question is asking why many people oppose Halloween--and there is a specific, non-opinion answer to that. It's also not 'too broad', IMO, because he's asking for an overview of "many churches." He's not asking "Do Christians oppose Halloween?"--which would be opinion-based and broad. He's asking why it is opposed by those who do. I believe it sufficiently specifies the scope of the question, according to our guidlines.

comment How do Christian theologians view and/or use Jewish commentators?
@Malper: Thanks for the explanation. I think it sounds like a very interesting question; however it seems to me that it's more a discussion topic than a SE-style question. I may be wrong; it may be possible to form it into a good question for this site; I'm just not quite sure how best to do it.

comment What biblical verses have been used to justify or even inspire working women?
@Mawia: He wept for the death of Lazarus; it might inspire someone to become a nurse or a doctor to help postpone death ;)

@Malper: What kind of answer are you hoping to find? Maybe we can help focus the question sufficiently for you.

This is still a list question.

comment What biblical verses have been used to justify or even inspire working women?
This is an impossible question to answer fully, as any verse could inspire one woman to get a job. If a woman reads "Jesus wept" and it inspires her to get a job, that verse makes the list. I'm not sure how, but somehow this needs to be narrowed drastically. As it is, it's a list question.

Jesus of Nazareth was a Jewish Bible commentator, and I'd say he had a pretty large impact on Christianity...

Otherwise a good summary :)

comment Why does the Pope include himself among the sinners?
@Matt: Paul calls himself "chief of sinners."

comment What is the thesis of the church towards asexuality?
Asking from any perspective makes the question too broad, as there would be countless correct answers. Focusing the question to Eastern Orthodoxy would cure that problem, making the question on-topic again.

comment What biblical (scriptural) basis does a Christian have to command the blessings?
I don't understand what "command the blessing" means, either.

comment Are Left handers servants of the devil?
"do the right thing" is an accident of the English language, and is something that doesn't carry to most other languages.

comment If God's nature includes being without origin how is it his Son, with an origin, is equal to that nature?
This question is based on a false premise, which has already been addressed. The Son does not have an origin, the Son is also eternal. See here for instance.

comment What is the thesis of the church towards asexuality?
@Nick: That's an improvement. Now to focus the remaining question: Is there a specific Christian tradition from which you would specifically like an answer?

comment What is the thesis of the church towards asexuality?
I suggest removing the masturbation question, and focusing the other to a specific church tradition (for instance, Catholics, Baptists, etc)

comment What is the thesis of the church towards asexuality?
There are three problems with this question. 1) It's asking two questions (a: What does the church say about asexuality, b: Is masturbation a sin?) 2) The first question (a) is too broad, as it doesn't specify which from which church tradition an answer is sought, and 3) The second question (b) is off-topic for this site, as it's a "Truth question"

comment What about the “beforelife”?
1. You are making several claims without providing references. 2. There are multiple concepts and words which translate into the English word "soul". I don't think any of them are believed to be "eternal" in the sense of having neither a beginning nor end, according to most Christian doctrine.

comment What about the “beforelife”?
It's better, but there's still no reason to think that "the Soul would have no beginning and no end". God could create the soul prior to the body; that in no way implies the soul is eternal.

comment What about the “beforelife”?
1. it is really asking did man 's Souls exist before creation That's not true at all. Human spirits could have existed prior to birth/conception, without existing prior to creation. 2. To believe that would to elevate man to the same status as God That also doesn't follow logically.

comment Is there really a Catholic “blessing for bacon?”
I think #3 is the most important part of this question; and depending on that answer, the rest of the question may be moot.
