comment What is the basis for the belief that Eve was created on the sixth day, like Adam?
@Jesse I hadn't heard of it either. Thus, the questions, one for each position.

comment Does it state ANYWHERE in the Bible that pets can or can not go to heaven?
@AffableGeek What I am suggesting is that the dog shows no signs of regeneration whatsoever. The old has not passed away, and the new has certainly not come. :)

comment What does the Bible tell us about how people knew right from wrong before the Law of Moses?
Most people have never read the Old Testament today, yet they still have an idea of right and wrong.

I might add, though, that although I love my parents' dog very much, he is extremely selfish, so there is little chance he would ever go to heaven.

comment How do sola-scriptura-people-who-reject-transubstantiation interpret these verses?
Jesus also said He is the door. He is also called the lamb of God. However, we don't believe Jesus actually a door or a sheep.

comment What is the minimum amount of action required to get in to heaven?
There are so many misunderstandings present in this question that it would be difficult to answer them all. First of all, Christianity is not a burden at all, so who would ever want to do the bare minimum? That does not make any sense at all. Such a person likely simply wants to avoid judgment, which is not what Christianity is about. Loving God and living in relationship with Him is what it's about. Who would ever want to get married and ask how little time he can possibly spend with his wife?

comment Can a Christian marry his deceased brother's wife?
I'm a little confused. Is the brother deceased or his brother's wife? I don't think anyone can marry someone else who is already deceased.

comment Where did angels get their wings?
@Nacht It seems at least reasonable to classify them as angels. At least there is not strong evidence against the idea.

comment How widely held among Protestants is the belief that the authors of the books of James and Jude were half brothers of Jesus?
Yes, this is, in fact, the common Protestant understanding, supported by the references you have already supplied.

comment Unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees
Well, it should be noted that have a righteousness that exceeded that of the scribes and Pharisees was a pretty low standard, as Jesus called them a brood of vipers, whitewashed tombs, and told them they were of their father, the devil. Righteousness is not attained by works at all. It comes from Jesus Himself.

comment How can there be free will if God is all knowing?
You are assuming that foreknowledge makes free will impossible. Knowing does not necessitate predetermination.

comment What does the Bible have to say about dinosaurs?
How would you explain the cave drawings and other depictions of dinosaurs created by humans when these same scientists tells us that they were separated by millions of years? genesispark.com/exhibits/evidence/historical/ancient/dinosaur

comment Does the Bible really mean EVERY city?
This question appears to be off-topic because it tries to make a common expression overly literal, which no reasonable person would think was intended.

comment Do any of the Mormon doctrines that cannot be found in the Bible come from the Book of Mormon?
Who told you Mormons no longer believe in eternal progression, including the idea that God was once a man? Yet, this is not explicitly taught in the Book of Mormon, to my knowledge.

comment What is the significance of the inverted pentagram symbols on the LDS Temple in Salt Lake City?
How exactly does that represent the second coming of Jesus? It had long before been a symbol of Freemasonry.

comment What are consequences of not being baptized with water?
It seems you are address this question to those who believe as you do, that water baptism is not essential for salvation.
