comment What version of the Bible is closest to the Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek manuscripts?
I think you would come to a much more useful understanding of translations by researching (and perhaps asking here) about what the purpose and methodology of each translation you are interseted in was or what translations use a methodology or priority set you are interested in. First you need to learn a little bit about the translation process however, it's not as simple as most people think. It's not a black and white choice between accuracy and something else...

comment What is the relationship between international branches of the LDS Church?
The LDS church is nowhere close to the shear size of the Catholic church and it's presence in other parts of the world is a relatively new phenomenon. I wouldn't expect anything even resembling the diversity, controversy, heft or roots that the Catholic church has in different countries --- not for generations to come. Doctrinally it also won't lend itself to such dispersion (viewpoint wise).

comment How does “being born a sinner” compare to “being born perfect” affect one's outlook on life and problem solving?
BTW, sorry this got closed as Not Constructive because the four voters before me agreed on that, but I think Off Topic might have been nearer the mark. In any case please understand a question closure isn't a death sentence, it's just a timeout and it can be re-opened if it is edited into shape. I'm sure our community will help you do that if you give us some idea what you are basing this on.

comment How does “being born a sinner” compare to “being born perfect” affect one's outlook on life and problem solving?
I'm going to have to agree with Jon here. At the moment this reads like a theoretical philosophy question rather than one about Christianity. Most Christian doctrine doesn't delve too deeply into theoretical realms of things that don't match our presuppositions. If you had a specific question about a particular Christian that believed in people being born perfect, that would certainly be on topic. Even if your question was "are there any", that might work. Otherwise contrasting two things, one of which doesn't really exist, doesn't seem like something we can do with good doctrinal support.

comment Does God create some people Heterosexual and others Homosexual?
I think this is a good answer that for some reason got burried at the bottom. However I think it could be improved with a note about what Christian traditions this view speaks for and which it does not (there are a couple, and a few on the fence but it should be easy to categorize them). As a question about Christianity, this speaks for a majority but it would paint a more useful picture of Christianity (not just correct doctrine) if it was identified.

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.
