comment How does dispensationalism reconcile Romans 11?
@curiousdannii interesting, I had not thought of it that way, the question assumes dispensationalists believe the temple will be rebuilt, however I was unsure about the nature of sacrifices going on there. If there is diversity of thought here among dispensationalists, perhaps 3 questions are in order? 1) Will the temple be rebuilt 2) What is the nature of the sacrifices going on there 3) What is going on with Romans 11 in light of that.

comment Are Lucifer and Satan different beings?
@thefreemason your comment doesn't make any sense? You are saying had I used the dictionary, or a bible in my language, I would have just realized that Lucifer isn't the devil or satan? From wikipedia: "Later Christian tradition came to use the Latin word for "morning star", lucifer, as a proper name ("Lucifer") for Satan as he was before his fall"... so a quick google has already produced confusion on this topic. Seems like a valid question.

comment How old did Adam and Eve look when they were created?
I think you mean to ask, "how old did they appear to be when created". And you might want to narrow your question to something like, "for young earth creationists...." because the answer is going to be dependent on your view.

comment Why did only 4 people write about the Life of Jesus Christ?
It is noted in Acts that many of the first Christians themselves were Pharisees (Acts 15:5). It is certainly possible that many of his followers during his lifetime, could have been members of this highly literate group as well. And consider Jesus himself, was in Greek, a Tekon, traditionally a carpenter, however this term could have been applied to any number of skilled artisans. This profession, although does not require one to be literate, is not a peasant either.

comment Why did only 4 people write about the Life of Jesus Christ?
I like your answer though, I'd like throw out some food for thought regarding the disciples being peasants. Consider Jesus's inner circle Peter, James and John. They were fishermen, perhaps members of the merchant class, and most likely tri-lingual. They would have spoken Aramaic to each other, Hebrew during religious occasions, and Greek in the market place, and perhaps maybe have had some written literacy as well. Matthew the tax collector most likely would have been able to read and write.

comment Was the Nicene Creed accepted under duress?
This is implicit in your question, but I think do add to this: "And if it was accepted under duress then what implications does that have to the church, and does it invalidate the Creed?

@zurc maybe, but Matthew is clearly connecting the two? Isn't he?

comment Saint Thomas in India
@JayarathinaMadharasan I think perhaps the OP is talking about controversy about Roman Catholicism in India. When the Portuguese arrived in the 15 hundreds some joined the RC communion while other remained separate.

comment Will Elijah return before the final judgement?
Hey @Byuiwritter, thanks for the response! Question though, how does the LDS church view Matthew 17, where Jesus says "But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him" if Elijah appeared at a later time to J. Smith?

comment Is there consensus on the age of human civilization?
@Flimzy Oh no, I think we are on the same page. I am not saying global flood. I am saying localized flood in a particular region. So humanity is (almost) completely wiped from the face of the earth, so its universal in that narrow sense, but if a flood is occurring only in a small region of the entire planet earth, then no, not global.

comment Is there consensus on the age of human civilization?
@Flimzy well not necessarily: consider someone who believes the flood was localized to a region, and in that region lived all the humans on earth. Now you have a choke point AND a localized flood. I could be wrong, but I think that is RTB's actually stance on this.

comment Is there consensus on the age of human civilization?
I heard someone at reasons to believe say they would place the flood event at some point around 60k years ago based on a genetic choke point, for context.

comment Is there consensus on the age of human civilization?
Sounds kind of off topic... consensus among who? Christians? Catholic vs Protestant? If you want some opposing points of view, check out 'answers in genesis' and 'reasons to believe' respectively.

comment Will Elijah return before the final judgement?
@Bizantine Oh I would love to know orthodox, especially since I don't think there is really a universal point of view on this one.

Augustine fan here, not an expert, but I've not read any of the translations you mentioned, except the one by Maria Boulding, and I very much enjoyed it.

comment What translation of Augustine's Confessions is the easiest to read in English?
Confessions has got to be one of the toughest translations of Augustine since there is simultaneously heavy Poetry and Theology/Philosophy

how about 'What does witchcraft mean in its original context, what would the Galatians in the first century, and Paul have meant by this term'.
