comment Why is it called Christianity
@John It seems from your comments that you have a lot of anger toward Christianity. I'm sorry if someone offended you. Admittedly, Christians do not wear his coat well sometimes. bible.org/illustration/you-wear-his-coat-very-well But Christianity is all about realizing that none of us are good enough for God. We are all guilty before God and need His forgiveness. All the best to you.

comment Why is it called Christianity
@john Paul's letter to the Corinthians (chapter 15) attests that most of the people who saw Jesus after His resurrection were still alive at the time he was writing the letter. Thus, we know for a historical fact that the letter was written probably 20-30 years after the resurrection of Jesus (~50 A.D.)--not 75-125 years later. And that wasn't even his first letter. Christianity is not a new religion at all. As I noted, it is fulfilled Judaism that embraces its Messiah. Call it whatever you want. The name does not matter. It all rests on the resurrection of Jesus, the promised Messiah.

comment From Scripture, what is the biblical basis that gay marriage is NOT a right from God?
@FMS No one is afraid of this question. The issue has already been dealt with elsewhere, though. Also, you fail to show why it should be a right in the first place. If God determines morality (and He does), then the Bible is quite clear that marriage is created for a man and a woman. Homosexuality is specifically identified as being immoral--along with pride, jealousy, envy, adultery, anger, dishonesty and many other things. Just because some people think something is moral does not make it so.

On this and other questions like it, we have to ask why anything at all is right and why anything at all is wrong. If there is a Moral Lawgiver, then He defines morality. So, gay marriage would be right or wrong based on what God has to say about marriage.

However, this question is probably not a good fit for this site.

comment Authoratative apologetics textbook
The first few chapters of "I Don't Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist" are especially instructive. The author begins with what we know about the universe and proves from there that a god must exist, who is outside of space, time and matter. Very logical and very well done.

comment What do Evangelical Christians consider “the traditions” to be in 1 Thessalonians 2:15?
@CharlesAlsobrook Sorry. Just pointing out that the traditions they were speaking of would, by definition, be in existence then, so it would not refer to teachings introduced later. Scripture can never mean what it did not mean originally.

Well, whatever it means, it refers to what was taught before then--not after.
