comment What does it mean to “flee to the mountains” as writen in Mark?
Look around, identify land that rises up very high into the sky, start running in that direction.

comment What Bible passage does this $1,000,000 dollar bill reference?
Why Abe Lincoln? He was a great guy and all, but shouldn't that be a picture of Jesus?

comment What is the Bible and Christian view on Astrology?
So, the story of Josephs has nothing to do with start and, therefore, nothing to do with astrology. So, how does this answer the question?

comment How does the LDS Church handle verses that imply there is no one like God?
I suppose it is possible that "there is no God like me" is a colloquialism, but do you have any evidence that it actually is? If not, then we probably should read it plainly. Otherwise, we could propose that to any passage of Scripture. Also, what about all the other verses listed?

comment During creation the Bible says, God saw that various things were 'good'. Did He not know they were going to be good?
That is reading into the text quite a bit. The passage does not demand at all that God was astonished to find that what He created was good. Peculiarities in speech exist in various languages. Russians refer to their own births in the active tense, as if they brought themselves forth. English uses the passive. The creation account was written in Hebrew, while you're reading it in English (I presume). It behooves us to allow for stylistic differences in other languages without misreading it.

comment When did the prohibition of marriage for priests in the Catholic church originate?
@FMShyanguya Actually, the Bible affirms that Peter was married. In the Gospel of Mark, Jesus heals Peter's mother-in-law. Additionally, the gospels mention nothing about any apostle being celibate. Paul was the only one that was not married.

Any evidence for this?

comment Is there a Christian definition of “social justice?”
However, this story seems to refer to personal charity--not political philosophy.

Christianity supports the idea of charity--not social justice.

comment How do YECs respond to the lack of non-Christian buy-in to their “creation science”?
We wouldn't expect atheists to embrace creationism. It kind of defeats their philosophy. The atheist has to embrace some explanation for creation, no matter how implausible it may be, lest he be made to forfeit his atheism. The atheist will even consider the possibility of aliens before allowing for creation.

Yes, Richard Dawkins is open to alien creatures "seeding" life on this planet, but he is not open to the existence of God.

comment By what did Jesus call Joseph?
There is no source for the answer to this, so the answer could only be speculation.

Better to keep this LDS only. You can only accept one answer.

comment Is BDSM dealt with in Scripture?
I think the nature of this question is a problem as well. We shouldn't sexualize the site, and there's a danger of a whole trove of questions in this area being asked.

Again, you are twisting things. Are you running for office?

comment Do Protestants believe that the Holy Spirit stopped leading the church?
You're really twisting things. What does asking others to pray for us have to do with the Holy Spirit working through each of us? Of course we should follow the biblical example of asking people to pray for us. However, we should not think that we have to have a priest or pastor to mediate for us. We all have access by faith to the throne of God through no other mediator than Jesus Christ Himself.

comment Do Protestants believe that the Holy Spirit stopped leading the church?
As Paul wrote, there is one Mediator between God and man, and that is Jesus Christ. We do not need someone else, priest or pastor, to go to God on our behalf. We all have direct access to God. No, we shouldn't trust our own judgment. We should trust God's judgment. He wrote a book, you know.

You should phrase this question in way that does not appear disparaging.
