comment Was Jesus' death legitimate?
I see--I didn't mean to require more knowledge of you than what you were claiming to have. My understanding is that hilasterion more directly means "propotiation" (the turning aside of God's wrath) and that the mercy seat is referred to with that word because the function of the mercy seat is to turn aside God's wrath.

comment How could Jacob wrestle with God if no one can see God and live?
There is a question in here, but as it's written, it is rather lacking. Check out What makes a good focused question? and Writing the Perfect Question for tips on writing a great question.

comment Is violence against LGBT people warranted by scripture?
Whoops--didn't even realize there was another question on this topic. The issue came up in relation to discussions around another question, and I found it relevant to make clear what scripture says on the subject of violence against homosexuals.

comment Was Jesus' death legitimate?
you seem to be suggesting that hilasterion is referring to the mercy seat in Romans 3:5 just as it is in Hebrews 9:5. Is that what you're getting it, and if so, do you have any support for that statement?

comment Is righteousness a prerequisite for salvation?
Romans 3:21 refers to a righteousness apart from law. This righteousness from God comes by faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.

comment What is the Calvinist view of God's sovereignty?
comes across as overly broad... it might be helpful if you gave an example where God's sovereignty is appealed to, where you disagree that the doctrine applies. Perhaps such would make for a more focused question

This is a pretty low quality question as it stands. With much edit-loving it could become a real question

comment What is the difference between 'Biblical' and 'Systematic' theology?
Big question. Huge. But it's a great one. I hope to have some time to work on an answer to this one later this afternoon.

comment What happens to non-believers or believers of other religions after death?
@Sven, that's a pretty good diagram; probably is more accurately a triangle, however. All the way down on "agnostic" there is much less difference between theist and atheist than there is all the way up on gnostic.
