comment Where did angels get their wings?
@Nacht It seems at least reasonable to classify them as angels. At least there is not strong evidence against the idea.

comment How widely held among Protestants is the belief that the authors of the books of James and Jude were half brothers of Jesus?
Yes, this is, in fact, the common Protestant understanding, supported by the references you have already supplied.

comment Unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees
Well, it should be noted that have a righteousness that exceeded that of the scribes and Pharisees was a pretty low standard, as Jesus called them a brood of vipers, whitewashed tombs, and told them they were of their father, the devil. Righteousness is not attained by works at all. It comes from Jesus Himself.

comment How can there be free will if God is all knowing?
You are assuming that foreknowledge makes free will impossible. Knowing does not necessitate predetermination.

comment Can someone go to heaven even when not believing in God?
@Steve In fact, there are very many people who have converted from every other religion to Christianity, and even from atheism. The church in China is rapidly expanding right now. So, even though you don't think people would do this, the facts affirm that it actually does happen with masses of people.

comment What does the Bible have to say about dinosaurs?
How would you explain the cave drawings and other depictions of dinosaurs created by humans when these same scientists tells us that they were separated by millions of years? genesispark.com/exhibits/evidence/historical/ancient/dinosaur

comment Can someone go to heaven even when not believing in God?
God's justice means that all sin will be punished--either by us or by the punishment that Jesus took upon Himself. If God's justice meant that someone who rejected Him but lived where there was less witness still got into heaven, then the best strategy for world evangelism would be to not tell anyone. God reveals Himself to people all over the world, and anyone can come to Him, according to the Scriptures.

comment Can someone go to heaven even when not believing in God?
The premise of this question makes several invalid assumptions, first, that belief in God is purely based on information and there is not spiritual reality of God drawing people to Himself. There are Christians in India, to be sure, and in Vietnam, North Korea, and Cuba. God promises that He will reveal Himself to anyone who seeks Him, yet He knows their hearts. If someone never seeks Him and never would anyway, then why should they get a pass just because they never heard or didn't hear as much as someone else?

comment Does the Bible really mean EVERY city?
This question appears to be off-topic because it tries to make a common expression overly literal, which no reasonable person would think was intended.

comment Do any of the Mormon doctrines that cannot be found in the Bible come from the Book of Mormon?
Who told you Mormons no longer believe in eternal progression, including the idea that God was once a man? Yet, this is not explicitly taught in the Book of Mormon, to my knowledge.
