comment Does the Bible condemn white lies?
@DavidStratton That is a hard sell. The passage about the midwives is particularly difficult for the, "you must never lie" crowd. Where else in the Bible can you find someone who is so completely rewarded for doing something which was so clearly against divine law?

comment What is the biblical basis for believing in the Book of Mormon?
@DavidMorton Deut. has a similar quote, and the book of Rev. hadn't been added yet... are you saying we should throw out the NT?

comment Eucharist as a definition of the Church in any early universal councils before the 1054 split?
No. It is from at least three sources (one on the life of Augustine, one on early heresies, and an article by an Orthodox clergyman condemning Augustine and western theology on that point). I don't have the link to the Orthodox article, and I have too many theology books to be able to find those two quotes easily. If I were to guess, I would wager that it is in a forward to Confessions, but it might even have been a lecture I listened too at one point.

@brilliant Yea... that was a part of another paragraph which I had deleted. I must have missed that sentence.

comment Giving to the church or giving to the poor?
As a note, however: Bishop's annual appeal and Operation Rice Bowl have historically sent a greater portion of the funds directly to Catholic Charities (at least that was my experience working for Paterson Diocese)

comment End of the world “calculations”
@hammar That said, the statement is actually partially tongue-in-cheek. If it is not the end of the world, you win. Huzzah! If it is the end of the world, the person you're betting against will never be able to collect, because it is the end of the world. There is no way to lose money that way.

comment End of the world “calculations”
@hammar I disagree, this is not a knowable finite period of time (to a human at least).
