@Narnian: oh, so that's what people mean when they talk about the early church...

This is a great answer! Very thorough and it looks complete.

comment Why do churches often have altars?
I did glance and thought, that's a lot of text. :) OK, so the sacrifice = Eucharist. That's easy to understand (and add to your answer).

I'd like to know what the role of the altar is. You said it was for sacrifices. Is it? What sacrifices are performed in Roman Catholic services? I don't know of any.

As I understand it, we shouldn't just post links but summarise them in the answer, posting links only for verification and further information. Telling me to wade through loads of text to find your answer is not helpful.

What do you mean by, "the altar... is still for performing sacrifices"?

@Eric: the latter. I don't recall ever seeing a live sacrifice in a service!

comment How come Easter is associated with Eggs, Bunnies and Flowers?
And probably because the devil considers it a good distraction from the whole point of Easter...

Possibly the answer to this might help explain Paul's statement about women remaining silent.

comment Does Deuteronomy 18:21-22 still apply today?
Well, people make mistakes. I wouldn't say that they are by definition a false prophet but rather that, in this case, they erred. I wouldn't judge their motives. However, if they consistently got it wrong, then I would say they cannot be trusted, same as I would if they prophesied something that was not for their strengthening, encouragement and comfort.

comment Jesus predicts that some will not die until he comes in his kingdom, but did this occur?
That is my understanding as well. But, it seems strange to say, "some of you won't die until it happens - because it will be happening next week".

comment What is the view of Jehovah's Witnesses on John 18:36 “My kingdom is not from this world”?
@AffableGeek: then it is logical to ask them to which tribe they belong, since the 144K are literally divided into twelve tribes.
