comment What does the Bible say about tithing?
@Mawia No longer required for Salvation. You are correct in that Tithes are not required for Salvation. For some men circumcision is required for health reasons.

comment What is unique about Christianity?
@Flimzy Weak distinction? My apologies but IMHO it is an important part of the Christian belief. In a parable (Matt 25:40) The King (who represents God in the parable) says ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

comment What is unique about Christianity?
@Flimzy They aren't quite the same. Sure they mention desiring something better for others but there is no action there. Its not about doing good rather than wishing good for them.

comment What is unique about Christianity?
@Flimzy actually its more about not doing harm than doing something good. Which is the whole point.

comment How do I get more faith?
@Richard I don't read between the lines when I don't need to. It says hearing and that's what it says. Further than that is between each person and God.

comment Can one sin be worse than another sin, or are all sins equal?
+1 for having both sides of the coin. I've always understood that they are all equal AND unequal: The all equally disqualify us from heaven (on our own merits) but they do not have equal consequences.

comment How do I get more faith?
@Richard That's a good question. I'd assume that hearing would also include our other senses. Its more about getting the Word of God in to your head than the physical appendage that it travels through.

comment What happens to people outside Earth on the second coming?
All I meant to point out it that it is a long way off. we don't have anyone on a distant planet yet. Who knows the second coming could be tomorrow or in 50 years.

comment Can Humans become Angels?
@El'endia Starman Its interesting in that the original translator (seemingly) couldn't comprehend how we could be a little lower than God himself. It doesn't seem that angels are even considered in the verse. But The Hebrews reference is a good one but I would point out Verse 9.

comment Can Humans become Angels?
@El'endia Starman Actually Pslams 8:4-5 in the original text had Elohim in the place of Angels: biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm%208:4-5&version=NLT

comment Can Humans become Angels?
I believe this is that we will be like angels in the fact that we will not die.

comment What is old earth creationism?
@djeikb I understand the issue and maybe the questions should be better worded. I'd still be looking for a better answer than a link until it was closed IMHO.

comment What is old earth creationism?
@mxyzplk while ity is great to link to other sites for more information wikipedia is often an information overload. In the sense that there is often more information than some of us can handle and want a little guiding hand.

comment The Tyranny of the Weaker Brother
I think thats it is good to point out that Its not a black/white issue. Good one. It is one of those places where it seems God has given us a brain and we should use our own judgement.

comment Is Christianity a monotheistic religion?
@Andrew Satan was created by God. God is the Deity and Satan is the creation. Belief in existence is not the same as belief in divinity.
