I am a scripting language connoisseur, regular expression aficionado, network geek, general lover of Linux and a frequent contributor to open source software. I transitioned to programming from other work because I was too busy automating my own work environment to actually do the other work. I have a hobby interest in cartography. For more see my personal site. Most importantly, my life is defined by the grace of God given to men through Jesus Christ. It is my ambition that everything I do would reflect His glory and point people towards Him.

comment Why do Biblical examples of polygamy include polygyny and not polyandry?
Historical Christianity is on topic too, but I'm having a hard time figuring out what you're asking. Go-fetch for "Is there a verse that says X" isn't a very good question, and "Why does the Bible say X and not Y" isn't something we can approach without a doctrinal perspective to work inside of. If you rule out those two things being your question, I'm not sure what you have left? A cultural discussion on the pros and cons of polyandry? Please explain in what way you see this question being about Christianity and we'll see what we can do for it...

Again Welcome, but as wax noted we really are looking for more here. Please do edit your answer to give an explanation of how you see these verses being applicable and note which theological tradition you speak for as well.

comment Are people possessed by demons today? What is the modern Christian perspective?
@lulian: Most Christian traditions teach that all Christians are temples of the Holy Spirit. The view you refer to is unique to a few specific theological traditions.

comment Can a Christian choose to walk away from his or her salvation?
NPP cannot be called multi-denominational at this point. It's found in-roads into quite a few, but it is by no means widely accepted yet and in fact is outright rejected my several major traditions. Others are still working out where they stand.

Furthermore, you go on to seemingly contradict even that introduction by saying that this is better than (and the original authors are more coherent than) what most denominations teach. The thing is, what those guys teach is relevant here as long as its' identified, but it should be identified that this is NOT exactly what denominations teach. (And specifically which do/don't would be nice).

New issue: (and this is a content issue not a site format / answer format issue, so this is me as a community member not me as a moderator writing) I think your first paragraph is way off track. First of all, this view does NOT exist in all denominations and there are very distinct differences between this and the views of many/most denominations. You might be able to represent this as NPP (not sure on that either, but it's at least close). However you cannot write this off as truly cross-denominational.

I've removed the post notice and cleared comments, since they are obviously obsolete. This is a much more complete answer with quite a bit of explanation.

comment What are the key differences between the Western and Eastern Christianity?
Honestly I don't think this is a convincing argument nor historically accurate. The doctrines in question can be traced back long before the time periods you suggest they were "introduced" and the split between East and West happened long before the power based moved: the things the OP here has lumped together as Eastern Christianity are largely composed of heresies condemned by either the first Jerusalem council (before Christianity had touched Europe) or in the following centuries (still before Christianity went West).
