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 In the context of 1 Corinthians 7:10-15, is a Christian free to remarry if his Christian spouse falls away from God and divorces?
On BH to ask this question you would need to change the scope to be more specifically about the text itself and the original context, not it's application to Christians. In this site, you would need to change the scope to ask about a specific theological tradition's views on this matter. "Christianity" is too broad a scope as different groups have different takes on issue like this and we are not here to determine who is right, only document what extant groups beliefs are.

comment How were the authors of the four gospels literate?
@Gigi You should edit that clarification into your question because that isn't at all the impression I was left with on first pass, hence not what I addressed in this answer.

comment How were the authors of the four gospels literate?
@Gigi In your question you wrote about "fishermen and simple people" with the implication that such people were also likely ignorant in general. Your question reads as if you were going by a modern definition of literacy as being able to gain understanding through an intellectual process and communicate fluently using language. Now your comment suggests you're strictly concerned with orthography and fluency with a quill, ink bottle and parchment. Do realize how words apart those definitions are?

@Gigi I think you're going to have to define what you mean by "literate", because it seems like you might have a very anachronistic idea of what constitutes literacy, especially in a historical context.

comment Can man judge whether God is fair?
@Pacerier That sounds like something for another question, not a comment. Comments on this site are for requesting clarifications or suggesting improvements to question or answer posts—not for theological discussion or asking side questions.

revised Are there any archaeological evidences suggesting the existence of the Book of Mormon?
backticks typesets in a monospace font and is for formatting code, now citations; used blockquote instead (normal double quotes and optionally italics inline in the same paragraph might also be appropriate, but this puts more weight on the citation)

...and I think in doing any serious research into the actual source text differences that in the end no major doctrines hinge on the variations.

comment Bible comparison KJV vs NRSV-CE
I edited out what was either forum style discussion (not appropriate for this QnA format) or did not address the question that was asked. What remains is an assertion you have made that relates to the question, but you have no sources to back it up. This needs some serious research to turn it into an answer.
