comment What are some good places to get Christian questions answered?
Imagine, for a moment, a God-hating, seething atheist who was also a LIBRARIAN devoted to the highest ideals of scholarship and information retrieval. This is how you should view this forum, and on most days we can do a good job of offering advice on how to write questions you'd ask such a librarian. On bad days, we can presume nefarious motives behind a question and close for "not clear what you'd do with the information."

comment What influence does pietism have on modern-day Lutheranisms?
I've seen Lutherans discuss pietism at length without making it clear what it is they are talking about. A link to what you consider the working definition would help your question.

comment Is creationism falsifiable?
I believe this answer is exactly wrong. You may feel that creationists of any stripe don't submit to evidence of disproofs, but that is completely different from the question of whether a worldview that spends so much time talking about physical evidences CAN be disproved. Furthermore, OEC has testable model: reasons.org/articles/…

comment How pure were the witnesses of the martyrs?
Typing this question makes me think God was wise in choosing a very learned man to be the chief NT author. Millions may have had saving faith, but not as many could probably explain it as well.
