comment Why was, “for they were Ishmaelites” considered an explanation for why the Midianites had golden earrings in Judges 8:24
No I'm asking what about the fact they were Ishmaelites made it clear they would all wear earrings. Was there symbolism?

comment What is Protestant Scholasticism?
That's kind of the nature of the question. I've seen some mixed things and the Wikipedia article seems to not exactly be what would be spoken about. At the same time this is the title of a class not a single lecture, so it's unlikely that he is using the term to be provocative.

comment Does “Positive Christianity” still exist?
Interestingly, positive theology is becoming a buzzword in certain confessional circles to mean, "Affirming things and defining one's theology with positive statement, rather than in the context of things you deny and oppose."

comment What are the biblical arguments against Arianism?
A fitting answer for @AthanasiusOfAlex! How well do you think this argument meshes with the Arian-like theology of the Jehovah's Witnesses? For example, that he is created, but like a human copy of God, that the Father is worshipped through Jesus, rather than with Jesus the object.

comment How were the books of the New Testament chosen?
Luther in his preface to the New Testament considered them non-canonical but also called them "good and useful to read" en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luther%27s_canon

Is there a reason why the non-canonical "useful" books do not appear to be used in any observable capacity today? (At least as a Protestant speaking).
