comment Did Paul actually know anything about the life of Jesus?
You're correct, you did say "answers"... my bad. Although your previous sentence does attack the question; that's probably what got my mind going down that track.

comment Did Paul actually know anything about the life of Jesus?
This person isn't asking for an atheist perspective, though. They're asking for a historical perspective--which for all intents and purposes ought to be the same as the Christian perspective. That the question is inspired by an atheist source should be irrelevant, IMO.

comment Did God create man to be gods themselves?
"The most conclusive answer" depends on which view you're asking for. I think this question needs to be clarified.

comment What in Christian faith lies behind subject of science?
This question is riddled with false premises. One example: "Theology doesn't question its source (the Bible)" Huh? Maybe some theologians don't question the Bible, but a good number have dedicated their entire careers to studying the authenticity of the Bible.

comment Did Paul actually know anything about the life of Jesus?
I think this question is a bad one, but not for the reasons presented in the comments. The OP's question is quite valid, and even coming from that video, it's a valid question. The reason the question is bad for this site is because the answer literally fills volumes. Not because it's a bad question.

comment Did Paul actually know anything about the life of Jesus?
@DavidStratton: Where does the FAQ state that? I can't find it. The closest I can find is a bit about good answers. I don't see anything stating that questions must come from a Christian viewpoint (that would seem counter-productive to me).

comment Were the Jews expecting God Incarnate?
@Greg: It's not a question of what alternative it offers; it's a question of how one should interpret the prophecies of the second coming.

comment Why was Lot “let off the hook” for offering his daughters to be raped?
Except that when Peter called Lot "righteous", it was after reading the same account from Genesis.

I've heard stories of chickens sacrificing themselves for their offspring.

comment What does “in the image of God” mean?
Many animals show signs of many or all of these characteristics--especially toward their own young, but often not exclusively.

How is this a question about Christianity?

comment Why do Biblical examples of polygamy include polygyny and not polyandry?
Historically, polygyny has been more commonly practiced, although polyandry and group marriage have also occurred to lesser degrees (and sometimes still do). I think the most common and likely explanations are that a) in polygamous cultures, there are often a shortage of men, due to wars and inter-tribal conflicts, and b) men are the "bread winners" and expected to care for their spouse(s), and not the other way around.

comment Did Jesus spend time in Hell between the crucifixion and resurrection?
Can you provide some references for this?

comment Why are Protestants allowed to divorce?
@PaulA.Clayton: Perhaps. It's all subject to interpretation. But that's really beside the point--some churches have such rules (including Catholic churches--which doesn't really relate to the question).

comment What is the case for interpreting the Genesis creation account literally?
@Jas3.1: You are saying that anyone who disagrees with you today is ignorant. And I don't buy it.

comment Christian view of why there are so many similarities between Quran and Bible?
Many Christians don't believe in a global flood either, for whatever that's worth. There are also even minority Christian groups that don't believe in a literal crucifixion of Christ.

comment What is the case for interpreting the Genesis creation account literally?
@Jas3.1: That's not an argument in your favor. That's simply a restatement of the debate; indeed, of every side of every debate, ever. "I believe X, and those who disagree are ignorant."

comment What is the case for interpreting the Genesis creation account literally?
I disagree with the very first premise. Whenever reading any work, the appropriate question to ask is not "Should I interpret this literally?" which poses a false, binary answer, but "How should I interpret this?" which allows one to truly appreciate the work as it was intended to be written.

comment What is the case for interpreting the Genesis creation account literally?
@Jas3.1: That's clearly a false explanation, as for centuries the church has read it as a non-literal account. The concept of a literal 7-creation days has only existed for about 150 years.

comment God is love, pure, and all good, and omnipotent?
There's an obvious problem in your question. Hate is not the opposite of love. Love, in fact, requires hate. If I love my spouse, I by definition, hate what harms her. The opposite of love is not hate, but apathy.
