Lua is highly underrated!

"This is a question and answer site. Not a "complex question, insightful answer that grows you as a person site." People should be able to ask simple questions with simple answers, that just may so happen to be spoon-fed. A lot of people just want to write code that works. Not be empowered. – Owen Sep 19 '08 at 21:23"

+1, everyone hears "tithe 10%", but I've never thought to check in the bible about that.. :)

comment Why is God asking questions or appearing uncertain in the Bible if He's omniscient?
@Atheist: you're misunderstanding the "eternal punishment". He lets us not believe in him, then when Judgement Day comes he honors those wishes and withdraws his presence from all who don't believe in him. Since God encompasses all that is good, this necessitates removing all pleasure and happiness. As a result, we land in what is known as Hell, a "place of eternal torment". If you drop a brick from a high height, why can't you avoid the consequences of whatever damage that would cause?

@Atheist: God didn't create evil. He created angels, also with free will, some of which rebelled from him. Satan was banished to Earth (and as pointed out above, tempted Adam/Eve into sinning). He allowed it to happen because he prioritizes us having free will over stamping out evil. What would be the point of his Creation without those who have free will choosing to worship him?

@Atheist: See this question for more info. In short, God allowed it because he gave us free will to choose. Why wasn't it something repugnant? We honestly don't know if it was or not; the Bible doesn't say (all it says is that there was a tree that they were to not eat the fruit from, and that Satan successfully tempted Eve and Adam into eating from it).

comment Does Joseph Smith fail the test of a prophet?
@Mason: But.... uh, how do you go from the bible saying "if someone prophesies in my name and turns out to be wrong, he be trollin" (strong paraphrasing there :P) and a list of off-the-mark Joseph Smith prophecies to "those who don't want to believe will always find something to cherry-pick to prove it's wrong"? I also understood the the referenced verse to mean that any prophecy that fails is because he/she is a false prophet, and you can feel free to completely ignore his teachings. So all you'd need is to 100% disprove a single prophecy of his. Not that this is the place to do it though.

Preliminary research (lavistachurchofchrist.org/LVarticles/Exodus42426.html) answers question 2, but not 1. :)
