comment Are these LDS scriptures consistent with LDS doctrine?
To the typical Protestant or Evangelical, the Book of Mormon, in particular, is more explicitly Trinitarian than the Bible itself and does attribute God as being infinite and eternal and unique. However, LDS will interpret these as being in relation to this world only, as they believe God was once a man like us and attained godhood. He can therefore change.

comment How to reconcile God's promise to Abraham with the current Jewish population?
@FMShyanguya This represents an alternative perspective that God's promise to make Abraham's descendants numerous includes all his children, not just Isaac.

comment Does the Bible prohibit women from having any position of power over men?
@fredsbend I wasn't trying to make a statement about how everyone in all time has interpreted the biblical texts. My assertion is that the biblical texts are directed at the church and family and do not address other situations.

Your question ignores the fact that God changed Abram's name to Abraham because he would be the father of MANY nations--not just one. So, to count ONLY the Jewish nation is not an accurate measurement.

The teachings of the Bible regarding women not exercising authority over the man are confined to the church and the family--not the business world.

The idea that homosexuality is genetic is entirely unproven. If it were, though, then that genetic information would have been lost long ago, as it effectively renders the person sterile, unless he/she acts outside of his/her genetic makeup, which then means it's not genetic.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about the rules of grammar in a particular language.

comment Repentance of Believers in Christ Jesus
Essentially, faith in Christ results in our sins being forgiven. However, we still have a nature that is sinful, so we have to seek to live a holy life. God does not just do that for us.

comment Does human effort oppose God's grace?
You would need to specify a particular tradition. Some traditions hold to the fact that salvation is all of grace (Spurgeon). So, we only work because we have already been saved.
