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 Is there biblical evidence of seraphims being angels?
The Luke passage you quote does not appear to establish anything at all relevant to the question asked. The rest of this is no more than annecdotal as the question is specifically asking if Christians believe there is Biblical evidence for a connection, not for your experiences.

comment How do cessationists interpret James 5:13-18?
@JohnPeters Plase don't use comments as mini-answers. If you have an answer, post it. In this case the question is not what Paul meant but what cessationists believe, so your comment is pure theological discussion. Please understand this is not a discussion forum and comments should be reserved for requesting or suggesting clarifications to posts.

comment What is the basis for the claim that Judaism is a Christian Heresy?
You may be seriously asking but seriously, did you do any research from other sources before you asked this? Like, for example, from the Bible? If the Bible claims Christianity to be the fulfillment of pre-Messiah Judaism, how could Judaism be a Christian heresy?

comment Is Genesis 18 regarded as a Theophany of the Trinity?
This answer may be technically correct, but it answers the wrong question. Remember this is Christianity not Biblical Hermeneutics and the point is to explain where various branches of Christianity stand on issues, not to argue from the text about what should or should not be believed. You kind of gloss over the issue about what extant Christian teachings there are on this matter. That's the question that needs answering here, not an exegesis of the verse (right or wrong).

revised What significance do Catholics see in the fact that Adam and Eve 'knew each other' only after original sin?
removed not question content; if you need to clarify the question do so but "answering objections" is not the perview of a question body.

comment What significance do Catholics see in the fact that Adam and Eve 'knew each other' only after original sin?
@curiousdannii Using the expression "original sin" to refer to the event of the fall rather than the doctrine is pretty common among Catholic laity. I don't see any issue with leaving it the way it is as what is meant will be readily apparent to anyone with expertise to answer the question anyway.

@user10871 Can you please edit this answer to include both the link and relevant citation? Comments on the SE system are ephemeral and should not be relied on to provide the answer to questions, that needs to be done in the body of question posts.
