comment Why are there so many translations of the Bible?
@dancek if you look at Psalm 8:5 in the NKJV it says "little lower than angels" but in the NLT it says "little lower than God" the Original Hebrew had Elohim but the translators couldn't understand how that was possible so they used angels instead. biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm%208:5&version=NLT Can't give a reference to the original translators thoughts though thats just speculation/hearsay.

comment How to get past anger with God?
@leeand00 If you have questions like this I suggest you find a good bible based church and find a mentor there. You seem to have many good questions but some would seem to go beyond the scope of an internet site.

comment How do I get more faith?
by hearing I mean hearing. Using the flappy things on the side of my head. Admittedly that would then lead to meditation on the word which in turn would lead to revelation.

comment How do I get more faith?
Someone who has already given up their life has no fear of dying. I think you mean fear that there is no Heaven or that you will not be in it?

comment Atheism is the default position. Isn't the burden of proof on the Christian to assert that God exists?
Maybe because its not Christians who need convincing that God does exist but rather Atheists? So when talking to an Atheist one would start at their position?

comment Are there two different creation accounts in the bible?
@rpeg I believe, though I don't know, that this was the style of writing used maybe due to the fact it would have first been passed down as a story and later recorded. So one event.

comment Will suicide keep me out of Heaven?
@imoda Thats a great clarification. I would be asking "Is there any sin that excludes us from heaven?"

comment Why are there so many translations of the Bible?
+1 But a reason I didn't see on there is that translators can make mistakes. (I'm thinking of the one that made a mistake in the ten commandments... nicknamed the wicked bible or something. I don't think it every got into real production but its a good trivia question)
