comment Without Hell, from what does Jesus save?
There are some suggested answers in those comments too, from which an answerer may wish to draw.

comment How does the Catholic Magisterium advise the married laity to defend the institution of marriage?
@PeterTurner What you want to do (and your reasons are your own) is to denigrate same-sex marriage. Why cloak this under the euphemism of "supporting traditional marriage"? That just makes you look like, not only a jerk, but a duplicitous jerk.

Start by saying what you mean, rather than talking in code.

comment What are Anglicans' opinion about Muhammad (founder of Islam)?
@curiousdannii I read somewhere recently (ELL SE, perhaps), that using alphabet to mean letter is a feature of Indian English.

comment How do YECs respond to the lack of non-Christian buy-in to their “creation science”?
@davidbrainerd. You are aware that that "documentary" edited its interviews in a very misleading way, aren't you?

comment Was Bible Revealed to Jesus? (Christian Perspective)
@mojo I don't see much here that an average Christian would have much disagreement with, though.

comment How does the Catholic Church explain passages that seem to use culturally specific logic?
Does it matter, @DoubleU? The KJV was just the first that came to hand, but I really don't think this is a verse on which translations will greatly differ.

comment Did Matthew the Tax Collector author the Gospel?
I do try to be a descriptivist, but the use of author as a verb still annoys me. What's wrong with write?

comment What is the basis for the idea that God is highly involved in human lives?
I think this is mainly an American phenomenon, yes.

comment Do Jehovah's Witnesses object to praying with other Christians?
Just a note that I've expanded my answer since you accepted it.

comment How do Jehovah's Witnesses interpret verses like Isaiah 9:6 which call the messiah 'God'?
@Bubbles And the Bible also says that some men's god is their bellies. Yes, Witness theology admits of many gods, with the caveat that words may have different meanings in different contexts.

comment How does Oneness Pentecostalism interpret Matthew 3:17?
This doesn't address the passage in the question, and hence is not, really, an answer.

comment What is the biblical basis for the belief held by Jehovah's Witnesses that Jehovah and Jesus Christ are separate entities?
Less of your opinion (which wasn't asked for) and more of theirs (which was) would make this a more focussed answer to the question.

comment What is the case in favour of adelphopoiesis as a relationship akin to marriage?
Since it's a religious ceremony, in what sense could it possibly be a civil union?

@DJClayworth Strange accident.

comment Question about the PCUSA treatment of Scriptures
Are you trying to ask about the general principles the PCUSA (and yes, you should edit your question to define that acronym, as @robertbristow-johnson says) uses to interpret scripture? Are you asking what the PCUSA believe about homosexuality, and how they support that belief with scripture? Are you asking about how the Bible should be interpreted (on either or both of the above points)? Or are you asking all of these things at once? Basically, I think your question is unclear, and hence not useful.

comment Looking for red letter bible in database format
@bracketsage. I believe that format is a form of SGML, once memorably described as "XML's weird older brother".

comment Looking for red letter bible in database format
I'm not sure what that last link is supposed to be. It appears to be a DDG search result page for the Polish character Ł. Besides the fact that "the third search result" is unlikely to be stable over time, I'm not sure why we're supposed to be looking at a search for Ł. I suspect you copied and pasted the wrong link. Why not link to the article directly, rather than to a search results page?
