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.

This page shows the verse in the JW Bible (New World Translation).

comment What are the arguments for and against the Anglican Covenant?
@AffableGeek: right. Take away the Bible and what are you left with? Your own beliefs, not God's. It's like God created man in His image, and now man is trying to return the favour.

comment What is God's definition of forgiveness?
Paul was not a good example in this case, Barnabas was. I think this was not a good moment in early church history.

comment How did the Seven Deadly Sins originate and how is it used?
I thought the tenth commandment was also about thought: don't covet.

comment Religious justification for creating a large angry scene with the ostensible purpose of making people not gay
@DJClayworth: I understood it indeed to be a Christian speaker facing hostility from a non-Christian crowd, but that the speaker himself was making things worse by also screaming (second paragraph).
