comment External reference of Jesus's resurrection?
This seems very relevant as a comment, but not really an answer to the specific question asked.

comment What was the population of the world at the time of the flood?
Thanks. I wonder if it is also possible that the earth was significantly more fertile prior to the flood, thus supporting a larger population.

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.

comment How to reconcile God's promise to Abraham with the current Jewish population?
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.

comment Does the Bible prohibit women from having any position of power over men?
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.

comment Is there anything like a curse on some people?
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.

comment Is it appropriate to capitalize pronouns referring to Jesus Christ?
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.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about it is based on a false premise.

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.

comment Judas in heaven
If Judas is in heaven, it would be hard to understand why it would have been better if he had never been born.

comment What happened to the 40 Jews who vowed not to eat or drink until they killed Paul?
Nothing is recorded in Scripture, but I'm pretty sure they're all dead now.

comment Everyone is sufferring - Godly and UnGodly people
I don't see how this is about Christianity. Nonetheless, just because a religion increases in number does not mean it is true.

comment How can an omniscient God say that all he created was good and then make changes as though he forgot something?
You're assuming that God was surprised to find that no suitable helper was found for Adam, but that assumption is invalid. God certainly knew all along that there would be no other suitable helper. God doesn't ask questions to gain information either. The benefit was for Adam. Adam also saw that no suitable helper existed for himself. Thus, when God created Eve, Adam had learned through experience that she was his unique companion. He probably even came up with the first pick up line--"Eve, you're the only woman in the world for me."

comment Where did the term “Jew” come from?
There is a tribe of Judah, one of the twelve sons of Jacob/Israel. The ten northern tribes went into exile first, leaving "Judah" with Jerusalem as the place where God continued to send prophets. "Jew" probably comes from a shortened form of the word "Judah".
