Web developer, I work in RoR, javascript css, html, css3 and html5 (when I don't have to support IE....)

I tinker with other technologies and my current kick is phonegap.

comment Are the early followers of Christ considered Christians or Jews in today's context? If not, when was the religion created?
@BruceAlderman I thought about removing the second part altogether but it did receive an answer from AffGreek so I wasn't sure what to do cause I didn't want to make the effort he expended worth nothing. I agree with you though about this not being the place for that.

@BruceAlderman and Dan, I edited your question and changed the title. I believe that my edit asks the same question still but just clarifies what your after.

Tried to find the good question in here and preserve the words and intent of the author.

@PeterTurner Obviously, this is a historical angle, I'm not trying to attack your beliefs. Sorry if my posts came across in such a manner.

@PeterTurner also if you study Jewish wedding tradition for that time period. You would know that there was no marriage without consummation. Consummation was what finalized the marriage contract.

@PeterTurner what makes you think she didn't consummate her marriage, before her husband died?

@PeterTurner I don't know, I've never heard of Anna... As for your answer. Tradition is tradition yes, but I said Jewish tradition. I have been looking around the historical records, outside of Catholic tradition, I can't find any evidence of the Jews practicing vows of virginity. And whatever you want to think Mary was a Jew, not a Christian. And was raised in Jewish tradition.

I would like to know this as well. Since there is ZERO precedent for this in the scriptures. Or in Jewish tradition.

comment When did Mary and Joseph learn that they were never supposed to have marital relations, according to Roman Catholic doctrine?
I removed the downvote. I personally don't know anything about the belief (I don't believe Mary remained a virgin) but it's always important when an answer isn't documented and is based on speculation that it says so. That way there is less room for misunderstanding, and assumptions of fact.

Well the Dogma for the perpetual virginity of Mary has documentation. It's not so much looking for a record of God telling Mary don't have sex, but where in the Catholic record this is laid out. Because there is no record of God saying that. Just as there is no record to support the perpetual virginity of Mary. It comes from the Catholic Catechisms.

This is pure speculation. Where is the documentation?

comment What is the basis for the belief among some LDS/Mormons that children in their pre-mortal existence choose who their parents will be?
@Narnian Mason is correct, it is taught throughout the LDS Church that there is no "one and only" and has been iterated on by multiple General Authorities. He is also correct about the ....usefulness of Saturday's Warrior. Though with many of the things it depicts, especially the pre-mortal life and missionary work I wouldn't even be as charitable as he was...

@svidgen I can look, but I don't know how hard it will be to find official statements that deal with questions like 'is any part of Christ's nature sinful'.
