comment Does a Christian have to believe in Hell?
If one believes (1) the book of Revelation and (2) what Jesus said about Hell, it's kind of hard to deny the existence of Hell.

comment Is there any biblical doctrine on how to avoid paranoia as a Christian under an Protestant framework?
@Mike: Matthew 10:28 "And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. might be the answer you're looking for." might be of use for Biblical advice.

comment Does the Bible say anything about a Conscious and Unconscious Mind?
@JonEricson: Out of curiosity, is there any official document on how Christianity / BH are split? I'm definitely guilting of posting questions that ended up on BH. However, it kind of baffles me how that given neither site is overwhelming popular, what the policy is that initially caused the split.

I've found that the solution isn't to "be less paranoid in this world," but to take it all as reminders that this isn't where I belong, and to focus more on heavenly things. The following's probably ironic, but I suspect that being thrown in prison would give me more time to study the Bible having a successful career. Because a successful career will constantly drag me apart, whereas if I'm stuck in prison, what else do I have to do but study the Bible and look forward to heaven?

Doesn't the selling of sacraments reduce to: "if you give the pope money; your loved ones in purgatory goes to heaven quicker?"

comment How do Reformed Theologians view Hypnosis?
@Mike: your answer is great. I liked the way how you (1) take hypnosis (2) break it down into its roots (3) analyze each part separately. It's almost "algorithmic" in providing a fish vs teaching to fish. I've just been preoccupied with other theological questions (many most posted), and haven't had a chance to reflect on your response.

@Caleb: with al due respect, as I look over your comments, I don't see anything besides: different groups have different traditions; therefore, we need to narrow to one group / tradition.

comment According to Reformed Theology, What is the greatest assurance of Salvation?
This seems like a very small change (adding "According to Reformed Theology"). Are you going for something deeper? (i.e. rewrite of the question; or just a simple narrowing down to a specific set of beliefs in Christianity?)

comment According to Reformed Theology, What is the greatest assurance of Salvation?
@Caleb: So this is an issue that Christianity is quite divided on? (For example, the mention of "speaking in tongues is assurance" seems to be nullified by Paul's letter to the Corinthians ...)
