comment What is meant by, “mild drinks” in D&C section 89?
For lack of anywhere better I suppose, but because of this site's scoping rules you'll basically be in an echo chamber. If you just want the LDS sanctioned view on a passage that's fine, but you can't really do what BH does here. There, any view is allowed to answer any question—even if that means concluding it to all be balderdash—as long as they start from the specific passage asked about.

comment What is meant by, “mild drinks” in D&C section 89?
Yes I have. And I noted it wasn't written in Greek, Hebrew, or even Aramaic—languages that for obvious reasons experts in Biblical hermeneutics tend to be interested in. Ergo different field of expertise. You should read ScottS's answer to the question Nathan linked as well as others that deal with the difference between primary and secondary sources. If you wanted to try to use D&C as the latter that would be fine but it is not topical as the former on BH.

comment What is meant by, “mild drinks” in D&C section 89?
@ShemSeger um, no. That would be a very different field of expertise. Deuterocanon and Apocrypha are one thing as well as some other contemporary texts but D&C would be a whole different field. None of the linguistic, historical, theological or cultural expertise would cross over at all, no more that Qu'ranic studies would.

comment Gal 5:18 vs John 3:16
@Smartis + flaggers: This question isn't worded in a way that would work on Christianity. We don't do truth questions about how thing "should" be interpreted. This could be edited to ask specifically about how a certain theological framework resolves this issue, but an analysis of the text and whether they are or not in conflict would be more the scope of this site to handle.

comment Can an act of martydom include the taking of another's life?
This post manages to do nearly everything except state the obvious: Islam and Christianity define martyrdom differently and the answer is no, no major branch of Christianity includes suicide attacks under the umbrella of martyrdom.

comment Is Romans 1:26 a condemnation of homosexuals or the sin of lust?
I agree with the scope issues with this question as worded for this site. One solution would be to tighten it up so you aren't actually asking for every view in Christendom. Another solution would be to ditch asking about specific Christian views at all and just ask for an analysis of the bit of the text that interests you and we could migrate it to Biblical Hermeneutics. Either way works, but at edit will be required to get this open again. What direction would you like it to head?

comment What is the Biblical basis against the Calvinist doctrine of Irresistible Grace?
I've helped you out with the links, but you really do need to edit this with a bit more summarizing how the articles answer the question. There should be enough content here to answer the question even if the article is not available.

comment Why did John the Baptist preach repentance through water baptism and specifically how is that different than repentance through ashes and sackcloth?
Some parts of this are duplicates of the question Was baptism practiced before Christ? Also this answer on our sister site also has relevant details. Perhaps you could edit this question to trim it down to the parts that are unique to this question.
