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.

comment What is the Bible basis for the idea of a temporary holding place?
@Mr.Bultitude: What edit would that be? Also, I'm not really worried about deleting old answers.

comment Have any Christian thinkers expressed the idea that the trinity can be proven independently from Scripture?
Do I count? I basically argued for the Trinity from a philosophical standpoint in this answer.

comment Where does Melchizedek come from?
@viatori: I'm not sure what to do. In its current form, it's not suited to this site, but the four people who have cast close votes saying as much have four different opinions. I could migrate it to BH.SE, but you said you've already posted there, but I don't see any questions on your BH profile. You look like someone that could really participate constructively. Please take the time to understand our perspective and to work with us.

comment What is the Biblical basis for the concept of 'balance' between 'two extremes'?
@David: Ultimately, I agree with Mr. Bultitude. I don't really want to just go ahead and delete it without Jas 3.1 seeing these messages, however.

comment What is the Biblical basis for the concept of 'balance' between 'two extremes'?
As this does not technically answer the question but rather argues for the opposite position, I suggest you delete it. I know that guidelines were different in 2012, but we do like to gradually bring older questions in line with current standards. (As an aside, you won't lose any rep for doing so.)

comment Is this “4 laws of creation” accurate or does it clash with Christianity?
This site is for what specific groups of Christianity teach, not for discussion of whether these claims are true or whether they conflict with beliefs of Christians.

We on this site are not qualified to help you with this. Please find a minister you trust and talk with them.

comment What does “to appeal from the Hell” mean?
Welcome to Christianity.SE! I had to think about whether this was on-topic for a little bit, but ultimately, I think it is because this concept is a little bit different in the context of Christianity than it is in plain English. I would expect a little bit of theology in the answers you get; i.e., answers shouldn't just give the plain English meaning of the word, but also explain why (at least a little bit) the Christian conception of Hell is like this.

comment What is the context/hermeneutics of Luke 12.49,50?
@Jacques: I have converted your "answer" to a comment. Please read the links fredsbend provided.

comment What is the context/hermeneutics of Luke 12.49,50?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic for now, at least until it is edited to ask for a perspective from a specific denomination or branch of Christianity.

comment What is the context/hermeneutics of Luke 12.49,50?
@Kelsey48: Please don't post the same question on multiple sites without at the very least tweaking it and making sure it fits the scope of each site. Your core question seems to be about what is actually said in the text, so Biblical Hermeneutics is the better place for this question.

comment What did Pope Francis mean when he said “who am I to judge” homosexuals?
@fredsbend: FMS had 4 deleted (1, 2, 3, 4) and 3 undeleted questions (1, 2, 3) about homosexuality/gay marriage and Scripture/Catholicism. None of them had an answer or comment from AndrewLeach.

comment What did Pope Francis mean when he said “who am I to judge” homosexuals?
@AndrewLeach: I looked through your deleted answers and the only one I could find that got close was your answer to "How did Adam and Eve sin when they lacked a sinful nature?". Perhaps the answer you're thinking of isn't deleted. I'll keep looking.

comment Where did Jesus stay during his 3.5 yr ministry?
Whoops. Edited in Luke 9:58 then realized that the OP had Matthew 8:20, which says the same thing.

comment What are some of the reasons for which mainstream non-Catholic Christians are against gender-neutral secular marriage?
@BCLC: DJClayworth is right. Don't carry on arguments or discussions in comments. I've deleted said comments.

comment Pantheism in the Bible?
The referenced verse talks about omnipresence, not pantheism. The former is "God is everywhere" and the latter is "God is everything".

comment What is the Biblical basis for the Catholic teaching that infant baptism cleanses from original sin?
Indeed, as fredsbend noted, this is not actually an answer to the question. I looked and there are very few scriptural references. If you could edit your answer to add the Biblical support/references that your sources (St. Severus of Antioch, St. Athanasius, St. Gregory the Theologian) use, that might be good enough.

comment What is the scope of John 3:16?
@curiousdannii: Such is usually the case with August 29, 2011 questions, the very oldest one. I considered putting a historical lock on this one, but I think the answer is good enough that I've simply closed it instead.
