comment How did the Brownists/Calvinists justify capital punishment for witches?
This is really a duplicate of a much broader question regarding which Old Testament Laws are binding. The Law of Moses applied 1) to the Jewish nation, 2) for a certain period of time. In Ezekiel, God spoke of a new covenant. This came through Jesus. Therefore, there is no justification for imposing Old Testament law intended for the Jewish nation at a particular point in history to Christians who are part of the new covenant.

comment Book recommendation that goes over how the bible is compiled based on manuscripts
It's important to understand that verses from the KJV were never removed. There are some Greek manuscripts that have the verses, and some that do not. So, either some explanatory phrases crept INTO some manuscripts OR some phrases crept OUT. Wikipedia has a summary of the major variants, which is pretty good actually. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… They also have a much more comprehensive list: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

comment Why do Protestants say: “In Jesus' name. Amen.”, whereas Catholics say: “In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.”?
@Geremia I personally seldom repeat the Lord's prayer, as I believe it is to be a pattern, not a repetition. I most often pray directly to the Father. I rarely, if ever, address the Holy Spirit directly, except in songs. I do address Jesus personally, but less frequently than the Father.

@Geremia No, we typically pray TO the Father (like the Lord's Prayer) in the NAME of Jesus.
