comment How do Protestants interpret Matthew 16:13–20?
@flimzy fair enough, I was confused a bit on that point, but even without that, I'd argue that only makes the answer stronger. The line could be either one of blood or one of blessing, but in either case, the passage is silent. It only speaks to Peter personally. Protestants would argue that passing on that blessing is not listed as something he could do, nor is there direct biblical evidence that he attempted to do so, especially in this passage.

comment According to theistic evolutionists, at what point did humans evolve enough to be considered special to God?
@rhetorician - I don't think you followed what I was saying. The drift I was refering to is that we are talking about interpretation questions entirely off topic from the OP's question about "at what point do theistic evolutionists believe that humans were unique enough to be special". If you'd like to have more of a general discussion, I'd be more than happy to have a chat with you in a more appropriate venue.

I agree with you about it being more theological than historical, even if literal. I'm not sure I agree about the significance of both being male or of the "sin gene", but that's really drifting vastly off topic for the scope of this question.

comment According to theistic evolutionists, at what point did humans evolve enough to be considered special to God?
@rhetorician - this is just one of many possible ways it could be viewed. There is no mention of other children to this point (though they are mentioned later). Additionally, having further descendants of Adam and Eve does not explain the distinction made between the sons of God and the daughters of man. I'm not saying "this is how it happened" but rather "it is a possibility that would fit with evolution, even with a literal interpretation of scripture."

comment Into whose name should Christians be baptised?
@bruisedreed - the argument this answer is making is that baptizing "in the name of Jesus" as referred to in Acts actually mean that they were doing it in the way Jesus described and under his authority, thus he is explaining away the apparent contradiction. It appears to argue both points as his argument is specifically that there is no inconsistency.

comment What is unique about Christianity?
@Kaveh - My understanding is that Islam still puts the burden on people to make the good side of the scale bigger than the bad. Christianity is unique in saying you can't make the good side big enough no matter how much you try, though even in some cases there are Christian religious groups that do preach a partially works based salvation, but this is generally a minority or them.
