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.

asked What's the right terminology here for what God's allowing something, but not blessing it?

comment Does God need/demand humans' faith for them to be saved? If so, why?
@Affable Geek - Well, in fact, it is going further away from what I was originally planning to ask about, but I won't change any of your edits as I think it's good to let this question stay the way it is now with all your edits. I admit I should have been more specific in my question and should have formulated more precisely what I really wanted to ask. My original thought was "Why is it exactly faith that He demands?" instead of "Does he really demand faith?"

comment What is the use of faith if God doesn't need/require anything from humans to save them?
I agree. Can you, please, tell me what detail you would add in my case?

comment Is the eternal life unique as it is?
@wax - I have already clarified it in my comment above - it's a doctrine about eternal life. I don't know what further clarification is needed.

comment Is the eternal life unique as it is?
@Narnian - Can you, please, tell me which verse tells us that the tree of life is in the heaven. I only get two verses from "Revelation" telling us that the tree of life will be in the paradise of God (Rev. 2:7) and in the New Jerusalem (Rev. 22:2), which, unless we consider the possibility of having two trees of life, means that the New Jerusalem is the paradise of God. However, the New Jerusalem is described as "coming down from the heaven" (Rev. 21:2,10) rather then "in the heaven".

comment What evidence do we have today about Christian groups not represented at the first four ecumenical councils?
@Jon - I think you read this question after it had been edited and therefore didn't get my point. My question was about the EVIDENCE that there were some christian groups that were not in fellowship with those represented in those 4 councils and, therefore, were not represented there by any bishop in those councils - not necessarily because of some theological reasons, just simply because they had no fellowship with them. Those might have well been the reasons that you have pointed out in the beginning of your comment. I am going to re-edit my question to make that clear.

comment Is it known whether Adam and Eve had the ability to experience physical pain before the fall?
@gentmatt - In this case I shouldn't even ask such questions as whether Jesus really suffered a physical pain on the cross or not on the simple basis of the question being a personal one. And even inquiring a great number of witnesses of crucifixion wouldn't help as their body's' nervous system was not connected to the body of Jesus, thus, they wouldn't be able to say with 100% certainty that Jesus really was experiencing a physical pain. However, to know whether or not God has commented in the Bible on Adam and Eve, I still needed to ask this question.

@gentmatt - How am I supposed to know if it's answerable or not before asking it?

comment Is the eternal life unique as it is?
@Narnian - Thank you for your answer. So, the tree of life, according to your question is the physical life then, right? "The former would inhibit our relationship with God" - I am a bit puzzled here. Why do you say inhibit? Why would then God need to give us the tree of life in the future again (Rev. 2:7)?
