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.

comment Why are the bread and wine mixed together in the Holy Eucharist during an Eastern Orthodox Divine Liturgy?
There are actually a number of protestant traditions that do this, so it isn't particularly rare. Both my current and former non-denominational churches also took the bread and dip it in the wine or juice.

comment Would it have been possible for Jesus to sin?
Could you add that to your answer with some further explanation of the relevance of the verse? It would help it be a much stronger answer.

comment Would it have been possible for Jesus to sin?
Do you have any references to support this? It is an interesting concept, but without any Biblical or theological references for support, it is really just personal feelings without any backing. It would be a much stronger answer if you can find some references or a theological position that support your claim.

comment Why our life on Earth defines our future life in eternity?
I would posit that a newborn baby could reject God as they still have a character and will, though we are drifting off topic and in to a discussion in comments. If you'd like to have more of a discussion, I suggest you join us in chat once you hit sufficient reputation on the site (which usually happens pretty quick.)

why do some angels reject him and others don't? People have free will. We get to choose to follow God or not. Some people believe they have it together and don't need God and will still feel they are better off doing their own thing. There are literally infinitely many possible reasons why someone could choose their own will over God's.

Personally, my impression is that those who choose to reject God will do so in as full of a knowledge of God as the angels have and continue to rebel. Our sinful state of rebellion is indifferent to the character, power or justice of God.

It is worth noting that not all Christian traditions hold that you have to decide in this life, some hold you can decide at judgement, still more hold that if you would decide at judgement to follow after God, you would also do so in this life as God reveals himself sufficiently for his power and Truth to be known.

@Mawia moderation really isn't a huge time commitment as long as you are available regularly to deal with any issues that come up. There are multiple moderators with four or more sites including ones far more active than this.
