Mod on Christianity.SE!

Aside from Christianity, I have many other interests, including mathematics, programming, writing, reading, 3D modeling, martial arts, rock climbing, and many more.

Welcome to Christianity.SE! This is a great first answer and I hope to see more great contributions from you in the future. :D

comment How can Christians reconcile the request to prohibit same-sex marriage and the lawfulness of homosexuality itself?
@MonikaMichael: If you think it's really a duplicate, cast a close vote; you have the necessary rep.

comment Should a Christian watch horror movies?
@Jas3.1: There's also Philippians 4:8 - "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."

comment Do the dietary prohibitions in Acts 15:20 apply to Christians today?
@MonikaMichael: Good question. I actually went and looked, but even the NLT says "consuming blood". You can, however, extrapolate from the fact that blood is present in (cooked) meat, which is not prohibited elsewhere. Drinking blood disgusts most people to this day.

comment Do the dietary prohibitions in Acts 15:20 apply to Christians today?
@MonikaMichael: Actually, it's drinking blood that's forbidden, not eating it. Eating blood is pretty much unavoidable if you're eating meat. (Health probably played/plays a part too.)

comment Do the dietary prohibitions in Acts 15:20 apply to Christians today?
Only a comment as I don't have an answer for your bolded question, but I've always interpreted that passage to be setting out the only rules (besides the 10 Commandments) that Christians have to follow. Pollution by idols gets its own treatment, sexual immorality defiles the Temple of the body, strangling is cruel, and drinking blood essentially means drinking the life of another animal/human.

comment Sponge in water vs water in sponge how to understand St. Teresa properly?
@Alex: Thanks for pointing out the Teresa error. :) That said, I would say "no". God does not make His Presence felt everywhere, which is what that would imply. He's certainly omnipresent though. I'm sure Teresa would've made another metaphor with regards to the world.

Earlier in the book, Tozer quotes the Nicene Creed but doesn't attribute it. He assumes a certain level of Christian doctrine knowledge...
