comment What are the differences between Mormonism and Islam, and how do Mormons react to comparisons with it?
Additionally, sexual relations seem to hold a prominent role in the afterlife for a select few, and polygamy was practiced in both as well.

comment What does Paul mean when he speaks of “in Christ”?
Perhaps it cannot be taken literally in a physical sense.

comment Are Lucifer and Satan different beings?
Lucifer is not even a name of Satan. It comes from the Latin Vulgate translation. The KJV translators did not translate the word, but just transliterated it. The original Hebrew word is הֵילֵל heylel. blueletterbible.org/Bible.cfm?b=Isa&c=14#s=t_conc_693012

comment What is the basis for an omnipotent God allowing imperfect transmission of his Word?
The alternative would be that anytime anyone in all of history ever attempted to make a copy of any part of Scripture, the Holy Spirit would divinely work to avoid any error. Some would certainly try to introduce error and be astonished to see it as an impossibility. It would certainly make translation work a lot easier. Someone would merely have to attempt to translate a verse of Scripture, and it would come out perfectly.

comment Moses' age when before the burning bush
@Jesse That depends on whether "before" is indicating time or location. When Moses stood before the burning bush, he was 80. Before the burning bush in terms of time would include 40, 41, 42, 43, 44...

comment If we mustn't serve money then how can we survive?
Using money does not equal worshiping money.

comment Where Does Jesus Say “I will save humanity”?
I don't believe this is anywhere in the Bible. It sounds more like an LDS teaching.

comment Is there a biblical basis for the division caused by theology?
@fredsbend Good thought. It seems, though, that Matthew 18 seems to address sin in the body rather than theological differences.

comment Is there a biblical basis for the division caused by theology?
@tiesasvWil Yes, I'm sorry. I was just mentioning that quote as a side note.

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 What is the reasoning behind the belief that Eve was NOT created on the sixth day?

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.
