My name is Ryan (though since you're on this page you probably already know that); I run a computer repair business for a living, and hobbies include programming and playing classical guitar. About 80% of my possessions are books. I am Batman. That's about it.

If it won't fit into Nature, we can't help it. We will certainly not, on that account, give it up. If we do, we should be giving up Nature too.
C.S. Lewis

The modern instinct is that if the heart of man is evil, there is nothing that remains good. But the older feeling was that if the heart of man was ever so evil, there was something that remained good--goodness remained good.
G.K. Chesterton

comment How does the Filioque affect Reformed Protestant theology?
It doesn't quite answer the question; you provide an introduction to the importance of the clause but say nothing at all concerning its impact on Reformed teaching.

Welcome to Christianity SE! When you get a second, check out a bit of [who we are]( meta.christianity.stackexchange.com/a/1381/4188) and what makes us different than other sites (Aaron's link above); we're not a discussion forum but an academically minded Q&A; you have some interesting facts, but it doesn't really answer the question.

comment What is the theology behind bodily relics?
@ClintEastwood: Would you move the "Did Protestants introduce a counter-theology?" to a new, separate question? This is really two different questions - "what to Catholics say?" and "what do Protestants say?"

@I'm going to see if the OP wants to split it for rep fairness (he's new so it would affect his significantly, even if it's one or two votes). If he doesn't I'll edit it out and ask it tomorrow, then let you know so you can move this.

You're right; though now I'm thinking that should be pulled to a separate question (and this with it).

comment What is the theology behind bodily relics?
-1. The questions seeks justification for the practice, so this doesn't answer the question. It would be a good answer to a question asking why Protestants have abandoned the practice.

comment Where did the concept of Christians attending a church building come from?
Genesis lists the sun's creation on day four, not day one. And that's tangential to the discussion anyway; it's not really necessary for the answer.

revised Does Mark 16:9-20 Prove the Bible is not the infallible word of God?
Made stylistic and grammatical changes. The link doesn't load for me and likely didn't improve the question (answers seem to ignore it).
