I'm a programmer by day and a genealogist by night, but mostly I'm a husband and father. I'm also a Mormon.

comment Is God capable of ever doing wrong?
@rpeg I just want to throw this out there because I think its one source of your trouble in getting the answers you're looking for: the Bible is not the only source of doctrine for many Christians.

comment How is love greater than faith?
If faith is only the beginning, then how can faith be all that is required for salvation? Or is there something better than salvation that we earn by loving as Christ did?

comment How can Jesus, born of mankind, be sinless?
@Caleb Yeah, I see why it was closed. I was just sad about not being able to answer a question that got me thinking and then excited to answer. I don't think anybody but the OP could fix it because he has to choose a tradition to scope the question.

comment What is the difference between being blessed and being happy?
You might consider rewording the title of the question. I feel like it doesn't encompass everything in the body.

comment How can Jesus, born of mankind, be sinless?
Did you mean to say, "Jesus did not inherit the sin nature"?

comment Do Paul and Jesus disagree on homosexuality?
Its not very clear how your five points directly relate to this point: "That said, Jesus has made a stand and voiced opposition against homosexuality."

comment Do Paul and Jesus disagree on homosexuality?
I think you're making too many assumptions here. Such as: Christ only taught what we have recorded in the gospels; Christ only shared with Paul what we have recorded in the gospels. Those are pretty large assumptions.

comment When did Christmas (the birth of Christ) first begin as a Christian celebration?
Good question but I think its asking for too much. You might take the last question about traditions that don't celebrate it and make it a new question that also asks why they don't celebrate.

comment According to the Mormon doctrines, who created the universe?
"So, the one true God could not have been the creator of the universe." I don't understand how you come to that conclusion.

comment What is the Catholic view of the rapture?
Why would the judgement have to be the final judgement? Why can't it be similar to the particular judgement?

comment What is the Catholic view of the rapture?
I don't see how the doctrines of the Rapture and the Final Judgement are incompatible. Could you expound upon that point?

comment Is 1 Thessalonians 4:17 the only verse that supports the rapture?
Your last sentence has an error; I can't quite tell what you're trying to say
