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.

See, e.g., Ps 82:6 and John 10:34-50 (which references and expands on the former)

comment Where do the names of books of Bible come from?
@Flimzy, you might consider saying that e.g., the books are attributed to so-and so. @MarcGravell; yes, the more precise claim is generally that the books were not so much written by these men themselves, but rather that it is the account according to each one's testimony.

@JonathonByrd, how do you reconcile that statement with the fact he mentions idols 11 times in his commentary on the first commandment: bookofconcord.org/lc-3-tencommandments.php

comment Is this distinction of biblical “love” terminology compatible with scripture?
@dancek, how would you explain, then, that Demas is said to love (agapao) this present world, or that, in the LXX, Amnon is said to love (agapao) his half-sister Tamar when he rapes her?

comment What test is used to determine communicability of an attribute of God
I'm still having trouble parsing your answer/comment. Are you making a distinction between boolean attributes and measured attributes, e.g., immutability is "on" or "off", whereas grace can be had in measure?
