comment What is the Baptist justification for anti-confessionalism?
Note that my own "isnistence" needn't be enough to change your question. I was the only VtC at the moment, and you had several upvotes. I offer my opinion, but my opinion is no more authoritative than that of anyone else.

comment Why are Christianity and occultism irreconcilable?
If you're primarily interested in an answer from a Charismatic perspective, I suggest naming a specific Charismatic denomination/group and scoping your question thusly. Note that "Charismatic" is also a broad, and very subjective term, thus I suggest choosing a specific Charismatic denomination.

comment Why are Christianity and occultism irreconcilable?
The answers to this question are far too broad and varied to be answered for all of Christianity. As an example, many rituals of the Roman Catholic church (prayer to saints, etc) are considered occultism by many other Christian denominations. So there isn't even an agreement on what occultism is! let alone if it is a bad thing, or to what degree or why. This question is the epitome of "too broad" without a denominational scope.

Note 1: all denominations are welcome. Let's make it ecumenic. -- this makes the question too broad.

comment Why or where were the 1000s of people who knew Jesus, why didn't they help
My comment neither trivializes nor ridicules the question. It simply points out the obvious conclusion which can be drawn by following the OP's apparent line of reasoning to its natural conclusion.

@cnaak: It's easy to edit a question to be on topic. It's not easy to do so within the spirit of the question asked by the OP. I have no idea what objective question this OP is trying to get at (if there even is one), so editing to make it on-topic would be entirely inappropriate.

So you're asking why all of those who believed in Jesus didn't start an armed revolt to rescue him from crucifixion?

comment According to Catholic theology, why does God have an only Son?
@MattGutting: I'm looking forward.

comment According to Catholic theology, why does God have an only Son?
The immdiate answer to this question is "Because that's what scripture says." The follow-up question, then, is "Why was this God's plan?" which would normally be off-topic, as questions about God's motivation are off-topic. Since you scope this to the Catholic church, it is possible that the Catholic church has a view on this, therefore, I think, narrowly saving it from off-topic status. But it still strikes me as a very weak question, and one that likely can only be answered by opinion (perhaps the opinion of Catholic theologeans, but contrast that to an official ruling from the church)

comment Is it true that people in the Genesis and Exodus are only given promises for future blessings?
Is it true that people in the Exodus and Genesis are given future promises? -- It seems like in Genesis and Exodus that God gave people promises of blessings in the future -- You seem to be answering your own question.

comment Why is the name Jehovah not used more in the Book of Mormon?
@PaulDraper: I also assume he is. My comment was directed toward those voting to close the question.

comment How does mainstream Christianity's perception of Heaven differ from the Mormon perception of the Terrestrial Kingdom?
Mainstream Christianity knows very little about Heaven. Popular culture "knows" much more. I'm not sure this is an answerable question.

comment Why is the name Jehovah not used more in the Book of Mormon?
As long as you're looking for Mormon answers, I think the question is reasonably scoped and on-topic. The most likely non-Mormon answer would be only opinion, and is probably something like "Because Joseph Smith wrote the book of his own accord, modeling after an at-the-time modern English translation of the Bible, which didn't use that word very much." But that would clearly contradict the official Mormon teaching, and is unprovable, making such an answer off-topic here.

Both believe in a god obviously.

comment Why does Judaism celebrate Sabbath on Saturday and most Christians celebrate Sabbath on Sunday?
@fredsbend: Yes, of course I do know that and I had made the connection between 'sábado' and 'sabbath'. I'd never made the connection with 'domingo', but of course you are correct. Portuguese also uses 'sábado' and 'domingo', and I'm sure many other languages do too.

comment Ezekiel Temple and Prophecy
Your title asks if it's an unfulfillable prophecy, your question asks if it's an unfulfilled prophecy. These are entirely different. Which do you mean?

comment When was the idea of all humans worth equal incorporated into Lutheran Christianity?
I think the concept was incorporated into Christianity from before Christianity was a thing. Jesus of Nazareth appeared to live by and teach that principle (and Christianity was formed, arguably, after his death and resurrection).

comment What are the biblical arguments that the Bible canon is NOT closed?
This strikes me as a question that is literally impossible to answer. The Bible can no better argue that it is complete than an alert person can argue that they are sleeping, or a living person can argue that they are dead. The existence argument itself would be the proof that the argument is false.

comment Why are the Psalms numbered this way in some Catholic Bibles?
I would agree that this question would be better with more information, such as a photo. I had no idea what you were talking about either, but the answer below cleared up the doubt.

comment What are the steps for a non-Catholic Christian to become a Catholic?
As re-worded, this question is on topic (although likely too broad), but still a duplicate.
