comment As a protestant, may I participate in the Eucharist (Communion) when visiting a Catholic church?
Many Catholics don't even understand the meaning behind "the Real Presence of Christ"... so it's hard to say they believe it :)

comment Is Communion still Communion under only the species of wine?
I assume you're asking for a Catholic perspective (or at least a perspective that believes in transubstantiation)?

Even if this is accurate, how does it answer the question?

comment Is it given by God in human nature to be a creator too?
@SoftwareMonkey: I can't even show you a 3 year old human who can paint a believable landscape... but I don't think that means a drawing of a 3-year-old is not creative... or "art."

comment When was Abraham alive?
@Caleb: But whether Adam was created when the earth was 6 days old or 4 billion years old is irrelevant to these timelines, right?

comment When was Abraham alive?
@Caleb: That sounds like it's really in relation to the chronologies in the Bible, and not the age of the Earth... no?

comment Must a Christian accept the Bible to be infallible and/or inerrant?
As always, I don't think it's appropriate to require answers from both sides.

I also don't understand what your answer to the question about Jericho has to do with the earth being 6000 years old :)

comment When was Abraham alive?
Does the age of the earth really affect when Abraham was born? 2050BC is the same year whether the earth is 6000 years old or 4 billion years old...

comment Why Do Moses' Laws About Slavery and Punishment Not Align with the Teachings of Jesus?
How do you know that the 10 Commandments will abolish slavery? They haven't yet... do we have some confidence based on the Bible that slavery will be abolished some time in the future?

comment What is the reason to genuflect when the Incarnation is mentioned?
Why do Catholics genuflect at all? :) This was a question I had when I was dating a Catholic...

comment How does the Arminian view of salvation account for God's sovereignty?
Your two verses, while they may support the sovereignty of God, by no means suggest that God does not please for humans to have free will in their salvation.

Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!

comment What is the specific meaning of “day” in Genesis 1?
To say "This disagreement has gone on for many centuries" is a bit of an exaggeration of the true situation. It's really only been a disagreement the last few decades... Prior to that, it was more considered a mere curiosity by most theologians. Also, prior to the popularity of the Big Bang theory (the first real scientific theory that was able to put an age on the universe), many predominant theologians believed the "days" were metaphor, but that the reality was an instantaneous creation. So even the literal vs non-literal opinions have changed drastically through Christian history.

comment What is the purpose of Prayer?
@CoreyOgburn: Many prayers have been answered "before" they were asked... And in fact, we might say most are, in some way. It has been my personal experience that when praying for a need to be met, often the ball is rolling, so to speak, to fill my need before I even know I have the need, let alone ask for it to be met. God is not constrained by time.

comment If the Bible is open to interpretation, how does one know which one is right?
@Athiest: Then you should ask that question.

comment When was Job alive?
This question assumes that Job was alive... many think he's a fictional character, and that the book of Job is just a parable. Of course the question is still interesting, in the sense of "When did the story of Job take place?"
