comment Why did God accept Abel's offering and not Cain's?
+1 Yeah, I think this is a key part of the question. Perhaps the best answer would be one that stresses this but also mentions the fact that Abel offered the first while Cain did not. Can you update your answer with this?

comment What are the main differences between 7th Day Adventists and Catholic/Protestant churches?
These are really two different questions--What are the distinctive doctrines of the 7th Day Adventists and why do they worship on Saturdays.

Thanks, Ed. Can you cite some references?

comment Will God destroy the earth again?
Welcome to Christianity S.E. A good answer would be a bit longer than this, but you are correct. You would probably also want to identify the error in the question--that the world would not be destroyed by water again.

@SanJacinto wycliffe.org is one. Also New Tribes. And here: ginesys.com/bibletranslation.htm

I'm assuming all written and unwritten languages in existence at the time of completion. Wycliffe and others often create a written language for a previously unwritten language, translate the Bible into that language, then teach the people to read it.

comment What is the basis of the argument that asserts that Open Theism is heretical?
It would be good to add a basic definition of Open Theism as well.

Welcome to Christianity S.E. I've edited this so that it is no longer a "truth" question. Such questions are not a good fit for this site, as it would just turn into a battle of opinions.

comment Why do we only pray for things that are possible to happen?
There are numerous instances where cancer has just disappeared, where the eyes of oppressors were blinded, and many other miraculous events have occurred. So, we do pray for the impossible, and God often answers.

@PeterTurner He was named Nestor?

comment Can God Change his mind?
This is a bit of a truth question. It would perhaps be better to ask how one side of the issue justifies their position.

comment Why Christian Translator Translate Rhea as Neighbor?
"Fellow man" may, indeed, better capture the meaning in isolation. However, in the context of Scripture, the word neighbor is clearly extended far beyond those who live next to us.

comment Why do Mormons/LDS refer to God as “Heavenly Father” rather than “Our Heavenly Father”?
Ok... I had just noticed that "Heavenly Father" as an indirect references seemed to be exclusive to LDS.

Any chance that there will soon be an accepted answer for this question?

comment How will Jesus be recognized at the time of “Second Coming”?
This will depend on which eschatology is actually true. For those who hold to a pre-tribulation rapture, most Christians will be returning with Jesus, so they will have already recognized Him when they were raptured into His presenece.

comment Did God create Adam and Eve with free will and knowledge of right and wrong (good and evil)?
Interesting points. I would disagree with one point, though. The fruit of the tree was, indeed, good for food. It likely tasted great. It also probably looked great, and it did impart to them wisdom that they did not otherwise have. God was not denying them something that was terrible in and of itself. This is the deceptiveness of sin, though. Things appear to be good and to our benefit, and there is certainly pleasure in sin for the moment, but the lasting impact is quite bad.

comment Did God create Adam and Eve with free will and knowledge of right and wrong (good and evil)?
@FFCoder No, it means that they had never known sin in that they had never experienced it. Shame, guilt and fear were all completely foreign to them. They did have a command to obey, which they failed to follow.

comment Does the Bible give us any indication of why God created such a vast universe with so much stuff in it?
One would wonder how God would be able to create a smaller universe. If we could see the edge, would we not wonder what was on the other side? As it is, we can never see even the edge, if there is one.

comment Will Jesus reveal himeself to anyone with the name “Isa”
I have personally met someone who was Muslim and was studying the Quran. From that, he learned that Moses received the Law, Mohammed received the Quran, but Jesus received the Spirit of God. He reasoned that the Spirit of God was a greater thing to receive than the others, so he went in search of Jesus and became a believer.
