I often chose best answers not because they are the best, but because I have to choose a best answer. Please, don't take offense to it.

comment Was Adam mortal before he partook of the tree of knowledge of good and evil?
"...his disobedience was according to the Bible" - What do you mean by this last phrase in your answer?

comment Why did God need to plant the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the garden of Eden in the first place?
So, the question is still there: Why on earth He needed to plant that dangerous tree in the garden?

comment How do we know that Satan, Lucifer, and Devil are the same guy?
How can we be sure that what Jesus says in Mark 10:18 refers to what is described in Isaiah 14:12?

comment Why did God hide away the fact that He had the Son in the Old Testament times?
@user1361315 - "Read Luke 1:1, he is claiming to give his full account" - Sure, and you do need to give a full attention to his account, that is, to read the continuation of that account - the book of Acts (Acts 1:1), in which among other things he mentions that early followers of Jesus were praying to Jesus.

@user1361315 - "Meaning if Mathew was with Jesus, and he is writing his account of his life, it is kind of important to mention something like: "Oh by the way, he is God in the flesh and part of the trinity"" - Matthew's putting God, Son and the Holy Spirit on the same level in the very end of his gospel is the clear indication of the equality of the Three. Ironically, unlike Mark and Luke, both Matthew and John were with Jesus.

@user1361315 - "Why doesn't Mark say these things, its kind of important no?" - So, just because Mark doesn't mention this, you are about to discard what John mentions?!!! No book of the Bible contains the whole Bible, you know.

@user1361315 - "How can David be begotten, and then Jesus be the ONLY begotten" - It's just so simple: The ONLY begotten in the divinity, not in humanity. Bible says that God has many sons, however, all those many sons are not divine, not equal to God, and Bible says that God has ONLY One, that is, the only begotten Son who is divine and equal to God.

@user1361315 - "Sure, but David was also begotten" - Sure, but David has never been the ONLY-begotten and has never been considered as equal to God or at least making himself equal to God. Jesus, however, was. See my reply to you above.

@curiousdannii - "Do things which are shared by the Roman Catholic church count" - Sure. Of course, they also count.

@Daи - All right. I will unaccept it for now and will wait for some more answers.

comment What “new-to-protestants” things has the Eastern Orthodox Church acquired with time?
@Daи - "The current answer is abysmal and does not answer the question. I'm not even sure why it was accepted" - I accepted this question because once in stackexchange somebody scolded me for not accepting answers for a long time saying that that was a bad practice causing me to be shunned upon by the community. However, I think the point about non-sainthood in the answer does hit the mark.

comment Does the Bible have any proof that Jesus Christ is the Only-begotten Son of God?
@Blake: "If there are two sons, which one is supreme? Which one is God (thus, divine)?" - Why only One of the Two Sons should necessarily be supreme and the other One not? And why only One of the two Sons should be divine and the other One not? Why can't both Sons be divine? And why can't both Sons be One and the same God (just like the Father and His Son Jesus Christ are One and the same God)?

@Blake: "Since there is only one God, and the Son of God is divine there can only be one Son of God" - Why? Why One God cannot have two divine Sons?

comment Does the Bible have any proof that Jesus Christ is the Only-begotten Son of God?
@Blake - "The divinity of Christ proves He is the "only begotten" son of God on the basis that there is only one God" - I think you are getting here at some valid point, but I am a bit slow to put two and two together. How does the divinity of Christ prove that He is the only begotten Son? And how does the fact that there is only One God rule out the possibility that God may have, say, two or three Sons?

Thank you for your answer. It does prove that Jesus is the Son of God, and that by being so He is God. However, it does little proving that Jesus is THE ONLY BEGOTTEN Son of God. For example, your last paragraph starts: "As for your question as to whether any other parts of the Bible show that Jesus is the only Son of God, the answer is "yes"", however, later this paragraph only proves again that Jesus is the Son of God, but not THE ONLY BEGOTTEN Son of God. But THE ONLY BEGOTTEN is, in fact, the main point of my question.
