comment if homosexuality is a sin, why isn't abstinence?
1. comments are not a place for debate. I put my comment out there to show why I downvoted your question. 2. Its simple, sex is the power to procreate. Abusing that power is using that power for anything other then its intended purpose. So homosexuality is an abuse of that power - which leads to it being a sin. So if sex is the power to procreate and you don't have the right to use that power (cause you are not married as is defined in the bible - remember God instituted marriage between Adam and Eve) then your only choice is abstinence because it is the forbearance of using that power.

comment if homosexuality is a sin, why isn't abstinence?
The entire basis of this question is off. Homosexuality is a sin because it is using something - the power to procreate - for means which don't lead to the intended outcome. Abstinence however is the act of not using that power for any outcome. Also men have been commanded to do all sorts of things so saying that anything that isn't sexual intercourse is a sin is just.... ignorant. Sorry if this seems harsh but this question is really low quality and assumes some huge logical fallacies.

There is no evidence whatsoever that God wanted them to eat the tree of life first, in fact the tree of life is not even mentioned until after they eat of the tree of knowledge.

comment Why did the Lord create Goliath?
@Caleb As far as the covenant nature I think that that at least is implied by some of what I said. But yea its def not the whole story.

I agree with everything that you said, but its late(not sure why I am even up still) and I didn't want to make a 3 page long dissertation.

comment Where is the sermon in a Mormon church service?
Good question but what do you mean by 'even more baptist then baptists'? Just curious.

comment Are there any conditions which make oneself completely unredeemable in the eyes of God?
While your point is valid, the turning of Saul into Paul is a great example of God's love for everyone. You are ignoring the scripture cited by @MasonWheeler which does say blaspheme against the Holy Ghost is not forgivable.

comment Who was the 12th Apostle - Matthias or Paul?
Voting to close. This can not be answered today and backed up with relevant facts. It is just going to lead to arguing between different opinions. Which is not what this site is about.

comment Who was the 12th Apostle - Matthias or Paul?
To claim that Paul is an apostle based completely on his own words. Which were quite prolific (which is why we have so much of them today) is very circumstantial evidence. I am not arguing that he was not inspired and not an apostle, but to unequivocally say that he is and Matthais is not, is very presumptuous. As @MasonWheeler said we simply don't know.
