comment What is the biblical justification for allowing only male pastors?
I don't believe this is a duplicate as it asks the basis for the opposing position.

comment Is there a biblical basis/justification for requiring a pastor be educated?
Welcome to the forum. This site is an academic site rather than one of opinion. As such, answers are asked to be supported with scripture or other resources.

comment What is the biblical basis for the prohibition of instruments in worship?
How do you know there were never mechanical instruments in worship? They were referenced in the Psalms, and the first Christians were Jewish.

comment What Scriptures are used to justify the belief that Christians of Denominations other than a specific one will be rejected by God?
@Bye Could you narrow it down to a particular denomination that believes this? The verses will vary accordingly.

The issue is not whether or not our names are written on a particular denomination's membership roles, but whether or not it is written in the book of life.

comment What is the Catholic Church's view of Anne Catherine Emmerich - can her visions and prophecies be trusted?
Could you provide a bit more content from the link--at least a brief summary? A good answer on this site does more than link to somewhere else.

comment Does being Protestant imply you are also a Zionist?
I really believe this should be closed. Otherwise, we would have to tolerate a ton of questions... Are there any Catholics who believe in multiple gods? Deny the trinity? Deny transubstantiation? Deny papal progression? The answer to any questions of the form, "Does ANY x believe y?" is probably going to be yes.

comment Adam and Eve did not get married
Was this a question or a rant? Who says you have to have a ceremony to get married? Or a piece of paper? Or Canon in D? This is a ridiculous question.

comment Does being Protestant imply you are also a Zionist?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about because it's a yes or no question that is easily answered as "yes, there is at least one Protestant that meets this criteria."

comment What is the specific meaning of “day” in Genesis 1?
That is, assuming God speaks to us in a manner that is totally incomprehensible for us.

comment How would it be Just to have Jesus blaspheme against his own Law?
If Jesus is, indeed, God, then He did not commit blasphemy, but was innocent of the crime of which He was convicted. The first word for God in Hebrew is Elohim, which is a plural form. Elohim says, "let US make man in OUR image". Psalm 2 commands us to "Kiss the Son". Isaiah 9 speaks of a child who would be called the Mighty God. Who was it that Abraham saw before Sodom was destroyed? Who was the fourth man in the fire? Who was the rock cut out, but not by human hands in Daniel 9? The Old Testament is replete with references to the Son.

comment What is the single best reason - specific to Christianity - that the Christian God is the real God?
@fredsbend A vision that one person has is hardly comparable to the resurrection of the dead witnessed by over 500 people. The historicity of the resurrection is the critical element of Christianity.

comment Are there any Protestant denominations that have specific requirements for baptism?
@ShemSeger Agreed, the way the question is worded, but it seemed to be better to list classes rather than individual denominations.

comment What would be the consequences for refusing confirmation in the Anglican Church?
It might be better to ask what the official doctrine would be rather than how certain people might react.

comment Why did God want a Tabernacle built by Moses?
The answer seems to be in the verse cited.

comment Why did God want a Tabernacle built by Moses?
This is a good start to a question. If you could elaborate a bit more, this could get some good upvotes.

comment Is it biblical to burn the heretics?
Yes, the Catholic church was wrong to burn heretics.

comment Should we pray for someone's salvation?
I would suggest two questions arising from this: What is the reasoning behind 1) PRAYING for someone's salvation and 2) NOT praying for someone's salvation?

comment Into whose name should Christians be baptised?
I'd be really interested to know from your perspective to whom you believe Jesus prayed when He was on earth.

comment Into whose name should Christians be baptised?
No need to blow up at me... When I said tradition, I meant which theological framework? Calvinist, Armenian, etc. Are you coming from the perspective of one who denies the Trinity as @bruisedreed suggested?
