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 How to understand the Bible better by questions?
The question is border-line, but I have decided that this is sufficiently close to declare it as a pastoral advice question. Hence, I've deleted all the comments that offered any sort of advice. We as a site don't deal with pastoral advice questions because this online community of strangers is not really qualified to help you with your spiritual problems. You are, however, welcome to come to Christianity Chat, though you'll need a little more reputation. Please, look around and see what sorts of questions you can ask. It seems to me like you could indeed be a good contributor to the site. :)

comment Hebrew-to-Greek translation of birth narrative's “virgin”
@Adam: If those questions answer your question, I can migrate this question and close it as a duplicate of one of the other two. Or I can close it here as it is off-topic for this site.

comment Did Jesus know from the outset that He was the Son of God or did Mary tell Him?
Could you summarize the points made there? We prefer to avoid link-dependent answers both to avoid link rot and to have the relevant information contained in the answer.

comment Where and/or when did the tradition that Methuselah died seven days before the Flood (for a period of mourning) originate?
@LeeWoofenden: Well, certainly. I don't think that's really contested at all.

comment What is the source of the belief that the deceased become angels?
This is a great answer, especially for a first-time user. Welcome to Christianity.SE! I hope to see more posts from you. :)

comment Do parts of Hebrews 3 and 4 imply that saved Christians can become unsaved?
@fredsbend: But to specify a denomination would invalidate existing answers......I'll just let other community members decide.

@fredsbend: Do you think that's good enough?

comment Did Jesus have a divine biological Father?
To put it another way, every human gets two sets of chromosomes, one from the mother and one from the father. In the case of Jesus, He got one set from His mother Mary, but where did the other set come from? (According to Evangelicals, that is.) Is this what you're asking?

comment What is the difference between Apollinarianism and Eutychianism?
This is a good answer (so +1) but if you could find and add references, that would make this great.

comment C.S. Lewis Reference: True Myths
Doesn't even have "true myth". I guess I'll have to look some more.

comment What is the basis for the idea of a seven year peace treaty with Israel in the end times?
A bit late, but it looks like you meant to have a hyperlink at the beginning of your post.

comment Did Melchizedek worship the same God as Abram?
As it stands, there are a great variety of answers to this question. I highly suggest narrowing down the scope of answers you expect to see.

comment Why (and when) did the empty cross v.s. crucifix split happen?
You had me confused for a moment. I was briefly wondering how you had replaced me as the author of the question. :P

comment Did Jesus own a home as an adult or was He a nomad?
Matthew 8:20 and Luke 9:58 imply that Jesus was definitely nomadic.

comment According to most Protestants, did Jesus intend one correct interpretation for his parables?
I closed this question as "Too Broad" because Protestantism (even just the mainstream denominations) encompasses a huge variety of different views. A comprehensive answer could be published as a book.

comment Can angels be saved?
@FMS: You deleted and reposted your comment, thus pinging Caleb again. He chose not to answer you the first time, so you trying to get his attention again could be considered rude.

comment Is abortion okay if it is medically necessary?
@fredsbend: I just went ahead and closed it. It's really old, and I could narrow it down, but then the answers would be mismatched.

comment Did Casting Crowns ever say why they chose their name?
@Reluctant_Linux_User: Please bring it up on Meta if you want to. Also, you can go ahead and flag it; we mods never handle flags on our own content as a rule.

comment Did Casting Crowns ever say why they chose their name?
It's at times like these that I wish there was a way to do a BibleGateway search across all versions. +1 for finding the right one.
