comment Is it possible to just visit heaven?
The Bible does not say that this is impossible, but it does not say it is possible either. However, Isaiah, Paul and John all saw visions of heaven. Paul's could possibly have been after he had been stoned. Yet again, the Bible does not give us a definitive answer on this question.

comment Why should a sinner suffer forever in hell fire?
An equally interesting question is, "Why should a sinner NOT suffer in hell, but be forgiven?"

comment What are the major differences between NASB and ESV?
Both have an S. Both have one vowel, one an A and one an E. One ends with a B for "Bible", and the other ends with a V for "Version". One is New, even though it is older, and the other is neither old nor new, though it is newer.

comment Contradiction between Ephesians 6:9 and Malachi 1:2-3
Quite the stretch there.

comment Why is the term Immanuel/Emmanuel considered to be a title rather than a proper name?
To be specific, it is transliterated as one word--not translated.

comment Should we be able fast like the fasts described in Bible?
The Heavenly Man gives the account of a modern day example of fasting from water for longer than was possible, but supernatural intervention was present.

comment What is the Biblical basis for the doctrine of the Trinity?
This is more of a comment than a question as this does not really answer the question.

comment External reference of Jesus's resurrection?
This seems very relevant as a comment, but not really an answer to the specific question asked.

comment What was the population of the world at the time of the flood?
Thanks. I wonder if it is also possible that the earth was significantly more fertile prior to the flood, thus supporting a larger population.

comment Are these LDS scriptures consistent with LDS doctrine?
To the typical Protestant or Evangelical, the Book of Mormon, in particular, is more explicitly Trinitarian than the Bible itself and does attribute God as being infinite and eternal and unique. However, LDS will interpret these as being in relation to this world only, as they believe God was once a man like us and attained godhood. He can therefore change.

comment Does the Bible prohibit women from having any position of power over men?
@fredsbend I wasn't trying to make a statement about how everyone in all time has interpreted the biblical texts. My assertion is that the biblical texts are directed at the church and family and do not address other situations.

comment Does the Bible prohibit women from having any position of power over men?
The teachings of the Bible regarding women not exercising authority over the man are confined to the church and the family--not the business world.

comment Is there anything like a curse on some people?
The idea that homosexuality is genetic is entirely unproven. If it were, though, then that genetic information would have been lost long ago, as it effectively renders the person sterile, unless he/she acts outside of his/her genetic makeup, which then means it's not genetic.

comment Is it appropriate to capitalize pronouns referring to Jesus Christ?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about the rules of grammar in a particular language.

comment Is God bound to future events?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about it is based on a false premise.

comment Does human effort oppose God's grace?
You would need to specify a particular tradition. Some traditions hold to the fact that salvation is all of grace (Spurgeon). So, we only work because we have already been saved.

comment Judas in heaven
If Judas is in heaven, it would be hard to understand why it would have been better if he had never been born.

calling people delusional is a bit inappropriate here.

comment How can an omniscient God say that all he created was good and then make changes as though he forgot something?
You're assuming that God was surprised to find that no suitable helper was found for Adam, but that assumption is invalid. God certainly knew all along that there would be no other suitable helper. God doesn't ask questions to gain information either. The benefit was for Adam. Adam also saw that no suitable helper existed for himself. Thus, when God created Eve, Adam had learned through experience that she was his unique companion. He probably even came up with the first pick up line--"Eve, you're the only woman in the world for me."
