comment How do the proponents of the idea that salvation once received cannot be lost explain Hebrews 6:4-6 and 10:26-29?
I did not (+1) since I'm not registered. But this is amazing (and makes browsing Christianity.SE when I don't have questions worth it). The amazing insight, IMHO, is the "think Judas" line. This does not contradict pre-destination since Judas was predestined to fall; yet Judas saw the miracles of Christ, listened to the teachings of Christ, then rejected Christ. This explanation is just amazing.

comment Did Martin Luther publish any doctrinal material of managing one's own physical death?
It'd be fascinating to understand how the martyrs viewed death. I can't help but wonder how real Heaven must be to those who declare "Christ is Lord" despite being threatened with crucifixion / burning at the stake / being lion food.

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?"
