Did some formal study at a Bible school in the US in 2006. Find enjoyment from reading books like the Moody Handbook of Theology.

I'm fascinated by the organization and history of the Catholic Church, interested in the outlandish theologies outside of mainstream protestantism, and enthralled by the sociological aspects of Christianity.

This is kind of funny: http://www.venganza.org/images/fsmrof.png

comment What distinguishes Christian meditation from non-Christian meditation?
I'm not sure what to think of this question's on-topic-ness. I think perhaps, there's probably a great deal of opinions on meditation, both within and without Christianity. That makes this too broad.

@FMS If the question said "Did the Jews in Jesus' time consider disease to be a punishment for sin?" would that make it better? I think this is an exegesis question. There's a Bible quote and the asker is asking if we are supposed to assume that the Jews think disease is a punishment for sin.

The question has significantly changed. You might want to edit your answer.

@PeterTurner TRiG's response compared to others indicates how much opinion this question did solicit. The edit is so much better.

comment Has Jesus ever directly said he would die as a voluntary sacrafice? If so, wasn't it double sense?
Is there more you can add? Is this all there is? It just feels like a really short answer.

@Samuel Probably not what the OP is looking for. Generally, if questions don't mention they want or are receptive to and LDS answer then they probably don't want it. If you decide to answer anyway, you might catch some flack. Answers must match the frame of the question. Ref: What should we do about matching the viewpoints of askers and answerers?

comment Is there Biblical support for Christians basing their beliefs on extra biblical texts?
This kind of feels like a side-step of the question. Is/can the Bible be used to support using others' works for congregational education? I'm sure there's a connection between using the Bible to support the belief that the Spirit interacts with us personally.

comment Do Christadelphians believe Jesus is God?
Thank you for answering. It's great to get a first hand answer. Is there a webpage, perhaps on your Church's site, that says roughly this too? Can you edit that in. +1 in advance.
