"Time has no meaning in heaven" - Got a source for that?

comment Is there a way to prove the God of the Bible?
Of course, these arguments have all been refuted in several ways. However, the main problem is that even if these arguments were all valid, they merely prove a god, not the God of Christianity.

comment How is Christian worship different than Christian religion?
The meaning of "establishment" in the First Amendment is summed up by the lemon test, which details the requirements for legislation concerning religion.

comment Are God, Son (Jesus) and The Holy Spirit Same?
I always found this formulation rather confusing. Perhaps it would help to clarify what the "is" relation means here. Clearly, it does not mean "is the same as", as that would imply that they are all the same (by transitivity), so what does it mean? "Is part of"? "Is a role of"? "Is a kind of"? Something else?

"the God hinted at by scientific research" What research? Or is that a quote from the book?

comment What arguments would you give to teenagers who are unconcerned about eternal life?
@AffableGeek: I voted to close because this is asking for opinions, not an answer. It might be more of a problem with the phrasing than with the question itself, though. Especially the "What would you ..." title makes this seem more like an open-ended discussion than a question with a definite answer.

comment What symbols are unique to the various denominations?
I've seen the first one (Chi Rho) in several Lutheran churches here in Norway, so I don't think that one's exclusively Catholic. Also, see Christian symbolism.

comment How does a Roman Catholic reconcile a preference for purely procreative sex with the Song of Solomon?
Most of them aren't. For example, studies show that 98% of Catholic women in the US have used some form of contraception, despite the official ban.

He gave up some perks. After all, he performed miracles, didn't he?

comment Should “Jesus” be rendered “Yeshu‘a” in English?
This question has an accepted answer, but it is not closed. If it were, you would not have been able to answer.
