comment Why no specific names of false apostles and false brothers in Acts and epistles?
Generally, it is this third James who is called, "James of Jerusalem" and it was he who sent the messengers in Gal. 2 that convinced Cephas to back away from full embracement of the gentiles.

First, there were two, probably three James's in the NT. The first was James, the son of Zebedee, the brother of John. The second was another Apostle by the same name. If there is a third (and I believe this to be the case for a reason to extensive to go into here), then he would have been James, the "brother" (word more accurately rendered "kinsman") of the Lord.

comment Is prayer an integral part of worshiping, or is it possible to worship without a prayer?
@brilliant Strictly speaking, no. Worship definitionally requires praise and adoration whereas prayer does not.

Who ever said that we worship saints? I said that worship is prayer, not that prayer is worship. Subset not synonym.

comment Why do OEC discount the literal interpretation of the book of Genesis?
I do think it might be important to note that the Church's infallibility (and therefore the Bible's infallibility) is limited to Faith and Morals. If the See of Peter made a proclamation about, say, the growth of mealworms, he would have no guarantee of accuracy whatsoever!

@AudioSancto There verses (and I will wager chapters) in the Bible where you can exhaust their meaning in an hour.

comment How do Christians reconcile God's omnipotence with his omniscience?
The three "omni" are knowing-present-powerful. Those are necessary of a deity. Omnibenevolence does not relate to power, however.

comment Does my monk go to heaven?
@Caleb The part from a scriptural perspective is 100% accurate, because it is all scripture. The nuanced part is, well, nuanced. I omitted a discussion of the Catholic doctrine of baptism of desire and the doctrine of baptism of blood. They seemed to be a bit much for the discussion at hand.

comment What is the theological import behind genealogies?
@GeorgeCummins Sorry, I only glanced at that reference. I remember reading about the significance of the 14s and how they are all numerically significant, but I can't seem to find verification online.
