comment What happens to people who have never heard about Jesus?
I didn't downvote, but just wanted to offer another way of reading I Corinthians 15:29 which might be contributing to downvotes. Paul, speaking of the resurrection, is saying, "What's the point of being baptized in the first place if there is no resurrection?" See also verses 15-16.

comment Why is Adam considered the original sinner?
@Jonathon I don't think I could do that. I didn't mean to imply that Eve did not commit sin. My point was that Adam knowingly, with full awareness of what he was doing and no deception involved, disobeyed God. I believe this is what Paul was referring to when he compared Adam to the antidote Christ in Romans 5:12.

comment What is the biblical justification for permitting female pastors?
@lonesomeday just to clarify... you're saying essentially that interpretation of scripture can evolve over time as cultures change (i.e. from Judeo-Hellenic society to present day)? Would it then be fair to say that, for example, a Christian in Northern Romania and a Christian in the Bible Belt USA could have different interpretations of these scriptures, but both be "correct" in their respective cultures?

comment How do I get more faith?
This. Go to church, read your Bible, etc and faith will come.
