comment Is it possible to be a good Christian and be psychic at the same time?
@DrFry Those are "do"s, as in actions you take, like committing idolatry. They are not "be"s, as in things that are integral to who you are, like being female, or black, or American. Another example: in this context, your professional occupation is never a "be", even though we often describe it that way in common language. "I am a salesperson." doesn't have to mean you've ever sold anything (though if that's true, you might not get to stay a salesperson for long).

comment Water Baptism - Is it still necessary?
@Matt That view would hold more weight if we didn't have all the examples both in Acts and extra-biblical early-christian histories of physical water baptisms. You also admit that water is commanded, but it's the spiritual baptism that matters. This view would have more credibility if it weren't so often implemented with a complete negligence of the commandment to also baptise in water.

comment What is the biblical basis for the prohibition of instruments in worship?
@IanRingrose It would not. Sometimes silence can be restrictive, and sometimes it can be permissive. The link in this answer includes an example that demonstrates each. For scripture, it is important that you have a good hermeneutic that instructs you how to handle silence, or you can use silence to twist scripture to permit or forbid almost anything. And again: this is the weakest of the reasons for using a cappella music during a worship service.

comment What is the biblical basis for the claim that abortion is immoral?
So you're saying two different DNA profiles is not at least an incredibly strong scientific indication of two different individuals?

comment Why Lord's Prayer is different in NIV?
I would add that at the time of KJV, there were fewer if any old texts that lacked the phrase, but more recent discoveries give a stronger case to the newer translation. Put another way: both groups did they best they could with the manuscripts available at the time.
