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.

It is an impossibility in reformed theology.

comment Why is it called Christianity
@John It seems from your comments that you have a lot of anger toward Christianity. I'm sorry if someone offended you. Admittedly, Christians do not wear his coat well sometimes. bible.org/illustration/you-wear-his-coat-very-well But Christianity is all about realizing that none of us are good enough for God. We are all guilty before God and need His forgiveness. All the best to you.

comment Why is it called Christianity
@john Paul's letter to the Corinthians (chapter 15) attests that most of the people who saw Jesus after His resurrection were still alive at the time he was writing the letter. Thus, we know for a historical fact that the letter was written probably 20-30 years after the resurrection of Jesus (~50 A.D.)--not 75-125 years later. And that wasn't even his first letter. Christianity is not a new religion at all. As I noted, it is fulfilled Judaism that embraces its Messiah. Call it whatever you want. The name does not matter. It all rests on the resurrection of Jesus, the promised Messiah.

comment What do Evangelical Christians consider “the traditions” to be in 1 Thessalonians 2:15?
@CharlesAlsobrook Sorry. Just pointing out that the traditions they were speaking of would, by definition, be in existence then, so it would not refer to teachings introduced later. Scripture can never mean what it did not mean originally.

Well, whatever it means, it refers to what was taught before then--not after.

comment What is the meaning of Isaiah 1:17?
It does NOT depend on what the meaning of the word "is" is...

comment Does Jeremiah 8:8 imply that the scriptures were corrupted?
The 5000 variant Greek manuscripts vary largely in 1) alternate spellings (color/colour), 2) word order (Christ Jesus/Jesus Christ), 3) and then insignificant variants in articles and verb tenses that fell out of use over time. So, your statement about those is either uninformed or misleading.

comment Refuting false claim about The Catholic Church in the Medieval Ages
I would wonder how exactly you know these allegations are not true. If your answer is that the Catholic Church tells you it isn't true, that is probably an invalid source.

I would guess he would have been O Negative--the universal donor. : )

comment Christians are doomed to hell?
The last part of your questions asks where the idea comes form that LDS believe or believed others were doomed to hell. The answer does not investigate this in the least bit, starting with an LDS statement of opposition, which is completely irrelevant. You did not ask if this idea was acceptable to LDS, only where it came from. The answer lists a single quotation and then asserts that conclusion is invalid. Whether it is invalid or not is also irrelevant. Basically, this has turned into just LDS proclamation of what they believe--not a serious look at the question.

comment Christians are doomed to hell?
This question seems to have devolved into attacking the Catholic Church, asserting that the conclusions they have drawn are wrong, completely unjustified and malicious. The accepted answer is from a LDS view and not a Catholic view.

comment Christians are doomed to hell?
This question appears to be off-topic because it limits Catholic perspective to strict resources considered official by the LDS church. The Catholic Church may come to its opinion about LDS doctrine on other resources, even if they do not have a specific LDS classification attached to them.

comment Christians are doomed to hell?
@Matt Yes, it's tagged LDS, but it asks why Catholic Church holds a particular opinion, then limits the source of this opinion to only resources considered "official LDS resources" by the LDS church, when the Catholic Church holds itslef to no limitation. Do we need to ask another nearly identical question that allows for the inclusion of resources that are by well-known LDS leaders, but are not considered "official" by the LDS church? If we did that on every question, we would have three times as many questions.

comment Christians are doomed to hell?
@Matt The restriction to LDS "official" resources is understandable from an LDS perspective. However, the Catholic Church does not come from this perspective. Thus, this is, in my opinion, an improper limitation. The Catholic Church may very well reference other LDS sources, statements, and historical material to draw its conclusion.

comment Christians are doomed to hell?
I understand that LDS members wish to restrict references to "official" resources. However, the Catholic Church is not bound to that restriction and may base its position on other statements and resources from LDS sources, even if they are not "official" according to LDS.

@Matt I'm not sure how Bruce McConkie is not considered a reliable source for official teaching. He was a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. If he doesn't know official Mormon doctrine, then who does?

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.
