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.

@David - It looks like you were giving me a link in the very last comment, but something went wrong.

comment Has the name “Jesus” ever been used for naming Jewish children since the Savior's incarnation?
@Caleb - I asked this question here because besides getting the knowledge about the fact, I also didn't want to miss on some important observations that might have been made by Christian believers regarding this fact (something that I would have less likely received on the "Jewish Life and Learning"). However, if my question is really so much off-topic here, I don't mind moving it to judaism.se

comment Are there any of the OT commandments of God that have been cancelled, but not clearly pronounced as cancelled in the NT?
In the very beginning of your answer you are quoting somebody and attributing those words to me, while I don't remember saying that. Whom are you quoting there?

@Affable Geek - No, no, no, I am not assuming that, although I am quite thankful to you for saying what you've just said. I am just trying to explore the concept of "total-ness of repentance" that was put forth here by David Stratton (read above the end of his first comment-answer to my follow-up questions). I was just trying to understand what he meant when he said that the repentance must be total.

comment Does Genesis 9:5 say that God holds animals accountable for killing humans?
Just my thought: God doesn't desire any one to die. However, Satan is working to bring humans to death. He works in many different ways, and besides instigating human's will and flesh to kill other humans, he seems to be also working through other elements of God's creation like animals and nature (calamities). Perhaps, if he succeeds in stopping a human's life through an animal, that animal becomes somewhat defiled as it was instrumental in the Satan's act of killing a man, thus, it must be dealt with accordingly.

comment What evidence do we have today about Christian groups not represented at the first four ecumenical councils?
@James Black - by a "Christian group" I mean a group of Christians gathering together and praying to the Lord, not necessary having an ordained elder (or ordained elders) among them.

“If you don't know what it means to blaspheme the Holy Spirit and are concerned about it, then you haven't done it yet” – Thanks for your input here, but, honestly, I don’t follow the logic in the last statement. If while driving I have felt a bump on the road and am now concerned that I ran over a cat, how would my unawareness of what it exactly was and a mere concern guarantee it was not a cat?

(3) Neither am I sure that my repentance on each one of those sins that I did recall was total. In fact, I am more inclined to think that it was not total as “total-ness” implies “absoluteness”, which is a quality pertaining to God, not to humans. Neither do I think that any honest Christian would ever claim that he has experienced a total repentance in his life, unless I am missing out on something very important here.
