comment Why do OEC discount the literal interpretation of the book of Genesis?
@mojo, it might be useful to have this discussion over at hermeneutics.stackexchange.com

comment Does being a Christian mean being a Bible literalist?
Perhaps not literally, but I see his point. It doesn't just say "In the beginning was Jesus, and Jesus was with God, and Jesus was God"--John in being intentional with his imagery here and we shouldn't be too quick to dismiss it. Again; not to say that God is the Bible, but that He identifies his self-expression with himself.

revised Does New Testament accounting language have any Old Testament backing?
"forgiveness" is not always financial language

comment Does New Testament accounting language have any Old Testament backing?
That's a good point. Forgive is translated primary from two words, ἀφίημι and χαρίζομαι; the latter being financial language, and the former not. It looks like where "forgive" and "sins" are connected, it is ἀφίημι. I'm removing that section of the question.

comment What evidence is there that Jesus died on the cross?
That's exactly the type of evidence I have in mind... if the question wasn't closed, I'd ask you to make that an answer.

comment How do “Sola Fide” adherents reconcile with the three aspects of faith?
This is clearly a thorough and well-thought-out answer. It does answer a different question than the one being asked, however.

Here's the question at BH.SE. The folks on that site give fantastically thorough answers!

comment Do Catholics view atheism as a sin?
I'm not sure why this had to be made about a belief-tradition. As you (@Richard) mentioned in your answer, Christianity is unified on this point.

comment Was Jesus' death legitimate?
Oh, I wasn't asking generally... I was saying that you seem to be making that claim, and if you are, your answer needs the support.

comment Was Jesus' death legitimate?
Understood--hilasterion is sometimes used to refer to the mercy seat. My question was whether that is the usage in Romans 3:25.
