comment Is there any biblical support for copyright law?
@MaxGontar It's a common misconception, but information is not considered property under copyright law. Only license to reproduce that information is protected. Take a book, for example. I can purchase a book without the author or publisher's (copyright holder's) permission, but I am not permitted to reproduce the book. Ownership of the text and information itself is not granted. Even the copyright itself is not "owned" by the author. Rather, copyright law assumes the right is owned by the public, and a special limited-term exclusive license is granted to the author/rights-holder.

comment Which Bible verses support adult-only baptism?
Also, I really like the "celebrated by" phrase at the end. There's a lot of "faith vs works" discussion around baptism, and I think those who see baptism as a work miss this.

comment Which Bible verses support adult-only baptism?
Just a comment on the Acts 2:38 passage: try taking it not as the promise that changes, but the definition of "children" to mean "descendants" and "far off" to mean "gentiles".

comment What Bible verses support infant baptism?
But personally, I'm with you that baptism is best seen as a believer following the picture of Christ's death/burial/resurrection.

comment What is the Biblical evidence against the day-age theory?
One point of order here: I don't think it's ever a good idea to ask how to use scripture to refute or support any view. That's kind of putting the cart before the horse.

comment What is the meaning of God's omni-powers?
God is everywhere (and everywhen), God knows everything, God is all powerful, and God is source of everything good.

comment The Grace Gambit
You mis-state Pascal's wager. The wager is not about "still living a good life" if you're wrong: it's about the infinite vs the finite. If you guess for faith, and you're right, you have infinite reward. If you're wrong, you risk finite punishment. If you guess against faith and you're right, you have finite reward. If you're wrong, you risk infinite punishment.

comment Should women give sermons?
Much of this argument hinges on the "culture and mores of the times" being wrong, and so it's a failing of man... and yet it's God who chose the timing. It appeals the need for extreme progressive thinking... which was already found elsewhere throughout Christian thought, which was already extremely progressive for the days in other ways. I could get past all this anyway and agree with progressive viewpoint, if not for the addition of the direct contradiction of plain-text scripture.
