comment When was the New Testament divided into sentences and paragraphs?
@TheFreemason I would say it's clearly part of Christian history.

comment In LDS canon, is the Final Judgement before or after the resurrection?
Just noticed that the Guide to the Scriptures says "The final judgment that will occur after the resurrection."

comment Where was God prior to creating the ***Heavens*** and the Earth?
You ought to choose a particular sect that you would like answers from. They don't all agree on the nature of God.

comment Is the LDS observance of the Sabbath on Sunday based on revelation?
I've never heard of meetings occurring on Saturdays.

comment What does it mean that God is the saviour of all people, especially those who believe?
I hope you find a way to get this reopened. I like the question.

comment In Catholic teaching, to what scripture is each of the seven sacraments referenced?
@FMS Thanks. I certainly didn't expect that.

comment In Catholic teaching, to what scripture is each of the seven sacraments referenced?
Are you looking for scriptural support for why each sacrament is needed, how they should be performed, or general evidence that it was done in biblical times?

comment Who if any Evangelicals still believe (as Jonathan Edwards did) that Adam was created with “a perfect knowledge of God” and everything else?
I don't know how you could reconcile that belief with "the tree of the knowledge of good and evil."

comment What does it mean that “many parts which are plain have been taken away”?
Your answer would be complete (and worthy of an upvote) if you addressed how the process of corruption occurred. The BoM Institute manual addresses this well under the heading "1 Nephi 13:20–29. Plain and Precious Truths Removed from the Bible".

comment Why is death a vital piece of God's plan in LDS theology?
The idea that the knowledge of death has a significant impact on our life and faith seems true. It is very difficult to imagine life without that. However, that doesn't feel like a satisfactory answer, especially since there's no direct support for it that I've been able to find.

Been watching Friendly Persuasion?

comment How do Calvinists interpret 2 Peter 1:10?
Your last statement, clarifying what you meant by a "matter of perspective," is very intriguing.

comment Do modern descendants of the Levites need to be ordained with the Aaronic Priesthhood?
Should probably clarify that "this office" in the scripture you quoted is specifically talking about bishops.

comment Do Mormons believe that all spirits are omnipresent?
Where do you see that? Looks like 34158 to me.

comment LDS Church and Genealogy Research (What is the connection?)
@warren I used to work for FamilySearch in the department that deals with partner organizations. Those in the genealogy industry know that FS and Ancestry once had a strained relationship, which would make no sense if they were owned by the same entity. Being primarily owned and staffed by Mormons who live in Utah != owned by the LDS Church. Also, Permira is European based: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permira

comment Is it easy to live a Christian life?
@fredsbend Last time I tried that I got yelled at for modifying a question that already had answers. So I have no plans to modify this one either. I'm perfectly okay with it being closed/deleted. That's probably the easier route anyways.

comment Why did Christ need to be the first person to be resurrected?
@Matt I just removed the lds tag in hopes that other sects might have some insight.

comment Why did Christ need to be the first person to be resurrected?
@Brian_Drozd I appreciate the insight. It's likely that your answer is correct, but I'm looking for something that authoritatively says so. We know that only Christ could redeem us from sin because he was without sin, but I don't know of any scriptures that explain how and why his perfection was also necessary for the resurrection.

comment Why did Christ need to be the first person to be resurrected?
@Matt If the answer were to differ between sects, I would prefer an LDS answer. Though I am open to anybody with insight.

comment What actions does the LDS church (Mormon) take when a member does not pay tithing?
@Matt I know people who pay once a year.
