comment Original Sin Getting Confusing
The concept of original sin, is the notion that all people are born with sin because of Adam and Eve's original sin. To a degree we must agree that all mankind will suffer the penalty for that sin which is death. However there are two kinds of death (physical and Spiritual) All will suffer physical death, but only the unrepentant sinners will suffer Spiritual death. A basic concept of Christianity.

comment How does the Catholic Church interpret “you are gods” in John 10:34?
I take no offense, but it will help if you will use the symbol and handle of the poster you are addressing. That is to use @ and the handle. Best regards.

Please expand on what first you mean by the RCC, and secondly exactly what you refer to as my last question. I cannot respond when I am not aware of what you are referring to. Best regards.

comment How does the Catholic Church interpret “you are gods” in John 10:34?
I'm sorry that my comment has upset you. Normally I do not even comment on questions about Catholicism but I was commenting based on the Douay Reims Bible. I was not aware that you were referencing any other Bible. Please disregard my comment or edit if you did not intend the DRB. If in the future you prefer another reference please quote the Scripture in your question, it will signal me and others not to use standard references. Best regards.

comment How does the Catholic Church interpret “you are gods” in John 10:34?
You have made an error in that you capitalized the word gods in your question. Neither John nor Psalms has the word capitalized, which distinguishes the one true God, from lesser (man made)gods such as Degan for purposes of understanding the Biblical difference.

comment What is the significance of one-third in Revelation?
@Steve nothing in Revelation to do with the past? except: >Revelation 1:19 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter; seen is past tense.

comment How did Paul know that Satan hindered his movements?
@bruisedreed Thank you for rejecting that as an edit. It would and is an acceptable comment, even though there was no justification for it. Certainly I am quite capable of mistakes, and will do some research to determine it's validity, and if I find it so will edit my own answer. If someone will show the justification for an edit I have no quarrel with their correcting my mistakes and welcome them since I also learn from them.

comment Do any young earth creationists believe that a change to the earth's axis tilt was God's way of shortening human lifespans?
There are some things which we are not meant to know until the final determination of mankind. The mysteries of creation and God's overall plan for doing things as he does having all knowledge, may be something we could not handle if we knew all of them. God's ways are not our ways, perhaps God does not want us to know lest we try to reverse his work.

comment What denominations consider Apocrypha to be heretical?
@DickHarfield Of course I am aware that there are books in the canon of the Catholic church which are not a part of the Protestant canon, and it is not those books I question, but a copy of the 1611 King James version with the Apocrypha gives several other books not included in either canon.

comment What does it mean to abstain from blood in the 21st century?
@Marc I sincerely hope I have not given you or anyone else the impression that it was unnecessary! My intent was to say that it is not possible to get all blood out, and the small amount left: ( by comparison to all that is in the live animal) is not reason enough to reject all meat. In the old testament even the priests were directed to eat the meat of the sacrifice even though not all of the blood was drained out. God is reasonable in his requirements.
