comment Is it true that Martin Luther used some bad language in his own writings?
I remember when I learned of Martin Luther's anti-semitism - it made me pretty sad at the time as I respected him as well. It taught me the valuable lesson that all men are sinners and we should really not be surprised when one of our "heroes" makes mistakes.

comment According to Calvinism, why does God give mercy to some and not to others?
@ltcomdata: yes, this is a common struggle with Calvinists: youtube.com/watch?v=h61C2LUAJpo it's usually pointed out that if you're struggling with it, that's a pretty good sign that you're among the elect. Isn't it common among other traditions to struggle with doubt?

comment Where did angels get their wings?
don't know. does that automatically make them angels? i suppose they both seem "celestial" and powerful, but other than that they seem completely different to me. ive even heard convincing arguments for cherubim and seraphim to be purely symbolic

comment Why did Zechariah's neighbours make signs to him?
Hmm... I would accept that except that in the earlier passage he makes signs as a way of communication because of being unable to talk, and so it would seem to me that the neighbours making signs would be a similar act, as opposed to just gesturing... It does seem odd that he would be deaf as well but never mentioned, but I suppose the two being related could explain that
