comment What denominations use gender-inclusive hymnology?
It is also a bad idea: I get confused and stop singing when words changed (I have been singing these words for the better part of 30 years... WHY WOULD YOU CHANGE THEM???)

comment What denominations use gender-inclusive hymnology?
As a side note: I don't care which denomination you are, that practice is grotesque and offensive.

comment Does the Bible condemn white lies?
@DavidStratton That's why the first sentence says that the answer is "sort of". It says a class of action which is wrong, and then it gives several counter-examples which clarify that it is not absolutely, "no lying."

Aquinas gives some defense of lying, as does Chrysostom, especially where a lie would be more charitable than the truth.

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?

@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.
