comment II Corinthians tells us we must all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. But by what will we be judged?
After reading the relevant meta posts, I will not be rewording the question. Either open it to receive answers or proceed with closure. I understand the reasoning behind the formula you're using to determine when to close questions.

comment Why do some people get healed, and others don't?
@Nick Your comment dips into complex issues of predestination and free will, God's desire to save/heal all vs only a few, etc. I would simply ask, were Jesus' words in Mark 9:23 meant literally or metaphorically? Did he really mean that anything is possible if you can believe it?

Thanks for that meta link; I probably should pay more attention to the meta site than I have been.

comment Who believe that innocent children will also go to Hell?
I added clarification to my answer that there are exceptions to the Protestant belief I outlined. I am attempting to answer the question "Can innocent children go to hell" from both the Protestant and Catholic viewpoints (generally, although there are obviously going to be exceptions). Can you help clarify anything I could have expressed better?

comment According to Roman Catholic doctrine, does the incorruptible body possess blood?
I am not a Catholic, but this explanation seems to differ with the Council of Trent's declaration that "in the sacrament of the most holy Eucharist, are contained truly, really, and substantially, the body and blood together with the soul and divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ." In other words, not just mystical but literal flesh and blood.

comment How did all the animals fit into Noah's ark?
@Wikis - In many Creationist discussions "TYPE" or "KIND" are equivalent to the biological "FAMILY". If you run a report on the animal taxonomy database by "FAMILY" here itis.gov/hierarchy.html, you will get around 5200 different "kinds" of animals. If you were to further filter that down to only land animals you will reduce the list further. I'm just suggesting this as a possible source for the number of land animal types.

comment Why does Judaism celebrate Sabbath on Saturday and most Christians celebrate Sabbath on Sunday?
Bjorn, Christians remember the resurrection on Sunday, not the Sabbath. I just wanted to clarify that I am not defending Sunday as the Sabbath, but attempting to explain why Christians worship on Sunday and not Saturday. Every day to a New Testament Believer is holy unto the Lord, because we have "ceased from our own works" (Hebrews 4:10).
