comment Did Christianity start as a cult?
There's many definitions for cult. Christianity's history is easy to research, but it's long. You'll have to look into it then decide for yourself if that makes it a dubious religion.

comment Papacy and why Rome?
Voting to close as unclear. You need to pick a question. Are you asking about Peter or Rome? Search the site first. I think the Peter question has been asked.

comment What is an overview of the interpretations of Acts 16:31 “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.”?
@JimLohse "Overview" questions are allowed as long as its not too broad. A brief explanation of the interpretations of a single verse is typically not too broad.

I've edited this question to make it on topic. The specific word "overview" tells answerers that you are only looking for a simple understanding at this time on the various prominent views. A complete view of all of them is too broad of a question.

comment Law and The Lamb?
Not sure what you are asking. First, you should probably find the verse you are thinking of then quote it. Second, the Lamb of God and Jesus Christ are usually considered the same thing.

comment The appointed time
@Eagel This is the problem. You're talking too much, obfuscating the question. Remove 90% of what you've said and the question will be better received and understandable. Brevity is the best trait of a good question. Delete all these comments too.

comment Should i be concerned how money i give to a ministry is beeing used?
From there, you can get very close to deciding for yourself if there's a problem with the money at your church.

Then I'd follow that up with perspectives on tithes and what they should be used for. Don't forget to search the site first, as those questions may already exist.

@AlexW Actually, I don't think there are any forums as good as this one, even for finding answers to your subjective questions. You just need to be clever in how you get there. Like Nathaniel mentioned, you can start by asking for perspectives on Pastor's salaries (i.e. "what is the biblical basis that pastors should get paid?" and "What is an overview on how pastors are compensated?").

comment Should i be concerned how money i give to a ministry is beeing used?
Personally, I see this as a completely subjective topic. It's obviously easy enough to know the church's finances. You know the Pastor lives in a big fancy home. What you haven't mentioned is whether you know his only source of income is the Church and has always been. Perhaps he's a savvy investor. But assuming his Church's salary pays for everything he has, it only comes down to one question for you: do you think he deserves it? If the answer is no, then there's a problem, either with the Church's finances or with you and covetousness.

@TheFreemason That has to be the fastest realization of Godwin's Law I have ever seen.

comment understanding the message of grace
Presumably, the judgement is the same, but Christ took that judgement on the cross when he became sin. This is so called substitutionary atonement and is a doctrine held by most Christians.

The SDA study and look for "cosmic signs". That's close to astrology, but certainly not the same thing.

comment The appointed time
I would edit this to make it clearer. First, put the question in the title. Then delete all but the last two paragraphs. Finally, provide a link or two that Jews condone astrology. To be extra through, add a link or two that Christians condemn it, but most of us know that they do.

comment What is the biblical basis for commemorating the birth of Jesus?
@James No need to be coy. It's clear that Christmas is far more celebrated both in number of people and extravagance than easter among Christians.

comment If the number 3 means Trinity in Christianity Doctrine then What does number 4 and 22 signify in Christianity?
Why do you think they might? Who believes that these numbers are "outside the parameters of Christ himself and the universe in general"? What does that even mean? This question is unclear. We need to know why this is even a question in your mind before we can understand it. Please edit this question to add those details.

comment Did any of the Catholic or Protestant paramilitary groups of the Northern Ireland conflicts of the 60s and 70s ever have an actual theological creed?
Yes, I'll up vote in advance, but you really should edit in a source.
