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 meaning of the phrase “men and brethren” in Acts?
Yeah, this does seem more suited for Biblical Hermeneutics.SE. If you agree, I can migrate this question over there for you.

comment Why does “in” mean in Job 2:2?
All taken care of!

comment Was the very command to “not eat of the tree” the beginning of death to mankind?
You should refine your scope to narrow down what sort of answer you're looking for. At the moment, there are far too many valid opinions that would answer this question. Are you seeking a Catholic response, or a Protestant one, or a Mormon one, or Calvinistic or etc...?

comment What is an overview of Protestant critiques of Swedenborgianism?
This answer might have the most citations of any on this site. +1 for doing all that research!

comment Does Young Earth Creationism teach that Adam and Eve only had a concept of morality after the fall?
Welcome to Christianity.SE and thank you for being understanding! :)

comment What was Anselm's biblical basis for his theory of atonement by satisfaction?
As curiousdannii said on your other (now deleted) answer, please edit to add more information instead of posting a new, separate answer. I've gone ahead and merged the two.

comment What is the biblical basis against Sola Fide (salvation by faith alone, apart from works)?
Oy, @curiousdannii, let's not bring a chat debate into the comments.

comment What is the biblical justification for permitting female pastors?
This runs afoul of relatively-recent changes to the community guidelines. Specifically that questions that ask for a Biblical basis for X should not be answered with a Biblical basis against X. This answer is half-and-half, and if you toss out everything except what actually answers the question, it's a small, sad answer. I recommend you to edit and remedy this issue, or it may be deleted. This site does want to keep quality high and high-rep users should be good examples to new users, after all...

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 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 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.

comment Does the Orthodox Church accept Gay marriage and why?
@FrJamesThornton: I've converted your "answer" to a comment. Please, take the time to participate constructively so you can gain enough rep (50) to make comments yourself.

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.
