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 Praying to people outside the Trinity
What about if the gulf is smaller? For example, if I try to say something to one of my former classmates who is still alive and is somewhere in Europe at the moment - I don't know where exactly - so if I, while being in Asia, try to say something to him aloud right now (a case, in which he will most likely not hear me - despite the lesser gulf), would you qualify that as a prayer or as an ordinary talk?

Do they really say that once a person is dead his soul can see all other people's thoughts in their minds?

comment Is prayer an integral part of worshiping, or is it possible to worship without a prayer?
Why "Worship is the act of telling God how much he means to you"? Is the act of, say, offering sacrifices(which can be easily performed absolutely without talking to/communicating with God), not qualified as an act of worship?

comment Why no specific names of false apostles and false brothers in Acts and epistles?
Yes, but these ones are not stated as false brothers or false apostles.

Very interesting. Thank you. If you have a source of this definition of a worship, would you please give me a link?

So, according to you, a prayer is not always an act of worshiping?

comment Is it true that Luther didn't consider anyone of the Catholic clergy to be a member of the true Church of God?
"Do you have any claim that he believed this?" - Not at all. I am just asking because I myself have doubts about what I was told on Luther's regard.

I agree it's a completely different question, but I hoped that cwallenpoole had some quick answer to it.

comment What is the use of faith if God doesn't need/require anything from humans to save them?
@Caleb - Please change the authorship of this question either to yours or to Affable Geek's as the way this question looks now is absolutely not what I was trying to ask. I have no way of choosing the best answer here as I actually never meant to ask what is my question now asking.

Well, in fact i came up with this question trying to understand what worshiping is.

I wonder how then those of Catholic and Orthodox square up their practice of praying to the saints with the God-given commandment to worship the Lord God only?

Thank you for your answer, Dan, but it seems that you haven't said a word about worshiping.

@James - So, would you call an ordinary talk between two living members of your church also an act of mutual prayer?

comment What evidence do we have today about Christian groups not represented at the first four ecumenical councils?
I am quite puzzled by the claim made by Audio Sancto on the regard of Thomas' evangelizing Americas. I wonder if the source he has provided is a credible one. I really want to read that book.

@Audio Sancto - How can I read that book that you gave us the link to? I can only see the cover and the title, but how can I get to its text?
