comment Does the Bible say if animals in Eden were carnivorous, or when animals on Earth became carnivorous?
My specific suggestion is: Clarify what you mean. Specify whether you are asking if Canon states this explicitly, or whether an answer that it can be inferred is sufficient.

comment Is there Biblical support for the concept that 'Whenever a man lies with a woman…a transcendental relation is set up between them'?
I don't see how this answers the question at all. Am I missing something?

I was trying to offer such suggestions.

comment Does the Bible say if animals in Eden were carnivorous, or when animals on Earth became carnivorous?
As my comments have made clear, it's not yes/no. It's "it depends." That's why I asked for your clarification... but you've chosen not to clarify. Second, I didn't say it was a truth question--I said it was too broad.

Then your question is "too broad," IMO.

comment Does the Bible say if animals in Eden were carnivorous, or when animals on Earth became carnivorous?
Are you asking if any canon says, explicitly, when animals became carnivorous? Or does the YEC view that the Bible implicitly states when animals became carnivorous count?

You still haven't answered my question.

If what is the case? I presented three possibilities... which question are you asking?

comment What does R.C. Sproul mean by 'essence' of God?
I agree with @Anonymous. Although the liquid/gas/solid analogy is used a lot, it's a false analogy. It is precisely as Anonymous said, modalism, and is indeed a heresy according to Trinitarians.

comment What does R.C. Sproul mean by 'essence' of God?
I have edited your question to focus on what R.C. Sproul means, since not all Christians are going to agree on this. I hope you don't mind. I considered adding the 'calvinist' tag, as R.C. Sproul is a well-known Calvinist apologist, but it seems the answer is broader than strictly Calvinism. Hopefully it's sufficiently scoped without additional tags.

comment Does the Bible say if animals in Eden were carnivorous, or when animals on Earth became carnivorous?
This depends on whom you ask. It does not directly say so, but young-earth creation advocates would say that it clearly implies the answer. Therefore, if you're asking whether the Bible (canon) says directly, this is answerable (and the answer is 'no'). If you're asking whether any doctrines provide an answer, then the answer is 'Yes.' If you're asking which is true, then the question is off-topic.

comment Was the virgin conception of Jesus known to the people at the time?
@FMShyanguya: an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit" (Matt 1:20) -- I'm pretty sure Joseph knew what was going on. The point is--the immaculate conception was no secret to Joseph.

comment Some say the cross originates with pagan god Tamus. How is this justified?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about paganism, not about Christianity.

I think it's clear that Joseph new, since he considered divorcing her in secret to spare her dignity.

comment According to LDS doctrine, what is the source of God's power?
@DavidStratton: I wound suggest deleting all existing answers, too, as these recent edits change the natureof the question drastically. Anyone who wishes to modify their answer to match the LDS perspective can easily undelete it again.

comment Unfulfilled Prophecies of Jesus?
You are asking good questions, but you need to focus on one at a time. I suggest asking three separate questions.

comment If we become zombie/crazy/muslim will our soul enter heaven at convertion time?
This is a question of philosophy, and thus off-topic here, unless any specific Christian denomination has doctrine on this issue (which I highly doubt).

comment Modern Book of Jasher - Genuine?
It could be an authentic work of fiction. That is to say, it could be by the claimed author, from the claimed date, but be fiction. This would be the same way that the original manuscript of Lord of the Rings is authentic. It was written by Tolkein's hand, and has been authenticated as such. But the events described never happened.

comment Believing in The Lord without joining a church
As your question is written, it is soliciting opinions, which makes it off-topic here. If you were to adjust it slightly, to ask, say, for the Biblical reasons to attend church, it would be a much better fit here.

comment Did Jonah die and raise from the dead?
Matthew 12:39 also likens the story of Jonah to that of death and resurrection, but it appears to be speaking metaphorically.
