I think this is because grilling is so much better...

comment How many of each species went onto the Ark?
The first was general. The second was specific. The number of clean animals was probably very small.

comment Why The Church keeps on collecting a Tithe?
@jlaverde But Aaron also mentions Calvary Chapel, as if any church accepting donations at any time is somehow wrong.

Yeah, last I checked, building maintenance, electricity, custodial salaries and everything is free for churches everywhere.

comment How does the LDS Church handle verses that imply there is no one like God?
So, according to your second paragraph, virtually all of mainstream Christianity is labeled as "Anti-Mormon", because they view those verses as indicating there is only one God and no other?

@StevenDoggart Perhaps. However, it is also suggested that the genetics were originally free from all of the deterioration we see today, so inbreeding would not have had negative consequences until much later. Indeed Abraham married his half sister. The Mosaic Law came 400-500 years later.

comment Did God's curse on Cain extend to only Cain, Cain's descendants or to everyone?
You are correct. The ground was cursed for Adam's sin, but Cain received a mark for his own sin.

comment Crisis of faith
I would also recommend the following books -- "I don't have enough faith to be an atheist" (sound reasoning and evidence for why Christianity is actually true), "Eternity in their Hearts" (how God has revealed Himself in remarkable ways all over the world), "All of Grace" (the joy of salvation), "The Unexpected Journey" (how people found the joy of knowing Christ from all sorts of backgrounds, and then maybe "Letters from a Skeptic" (a son wrestles with his father's questions about Christianity).

comment Crisis of faith
Belonging to any particular faith is not what Christianity is about. God the Son did not enter into His creation, live, die and rise from the dead just so that we could attend a place of worship occasionally and remember Him. He did all that to redeem us out of sin and into a vibrant relationship with Him. Christianity is not just a good way to live either--it is actually true, and the resurrection of Jesus is the key piece of evidence in that.
