comment Why is Freemasonry considered by many evangelicals to be incompatible with Christianity?
While interesting to hear one persons' defense of Freemasonry, most of this is off topic for this question. The question is why so many evangelicals consider it incompattable with their beliefs. The note about unequal yoking is only a very small piece of that and not even specific to the beliefs of either group. Most Evangelicals DO believe in being friends with non-Christian's, don't put much stock in the bit about unequal yoking in settings other than marriage and sometimes business, yet there are still fundamental belief conflicts between them. Those are what would answer this question.

comment Does transcendental meditation conflict with any Christian beliefs?
This question is almost impossible to answer "no". I think you've got the wrong question. You are trying to answer whether it should conflict according to your version of Christianity, whereas the question that this site can and should be fielding is what various Christian traditions actually believe -- and some of them are bound to conflict making the only possible answer here "yes". Which ones conflict and how/why? That it doesn't conflict with your personal views isn't particularly relevant.

comment Can God reverse the fall of man specifically on earth?
As worded this is a very speculative question. Off hand I can think of some traditions that say no, others that say yes. And both of the above would reject several of your premises. What are you trying to learn here? How is this a question about Christianity rather than a truth question where you're trying to find a "right" answer?

Unfortunately this question has some problems that lend itself to answers that don't fit our guidelines. We'll be working to sort those out. Don't be discouraged, we do realize there is a bit of a steep learning curve because this isn't a normal internet forum.

Welcome to Christianity.SE! I'd like to encourage you to continue participating, but as you do please check out our faq and I'd like to specifically point you to some posts on our meta site, particularly this one, which might help clarify some things. One confusing point for most new folks is that we're not really looking for posts that try to forward and defend the "truth" of a matter so much as ones that show what various Christian traditions think of an issue.

@Jas3.1: Completely answering your question is an unreasonable expectation because it's got a dozen different things going on and would require a doctorate thesis on the subject to cover it all. Per my other comment, I think this will be much more useful broken down into pieces.

Secondly, from what I can make out this should probably be split into at least 4 separate questions. The "when" and "why" questions as well as the one about current denominational practices can all stand on their own. Your question about whether it should still be rejected today could be asked, but you should be careful to keep it away from being a truth question.

Aaaaaa, bold blindness! I've seen flashing neon signs that were easier to follow. Seriously the usage of bold here is so distracting I can't concentrate on reading actual sentences. I would suggest that if words need this much formatting help in order to convey the right meaning, you would be better off using different words.
