comment Blood transfusions and Christianity?
@Saher: No one drinks alcohol; people drink alcoholic beverages, and the same principle applies. Injecting beer directly into your bloodstream rather than drinking it would be a good way to end up in the hospital, if not the morgue.

comment According to the Bible, is it a sin to marry a non-virgin?
In addition to Hosea, consider the custom of levirate marriage. If a married man dies childless, his brother was required, under the Law of Moses, to marry her as a surrogate for his brother. Assuming they weren't childless for lack of trying, this would not only not forbid the brother to marry a non-virgin, but require him to.

comment A woman's testimony was considered inadmissible in a court of law. Whose law?
It's worth noting that, among the Romans at least, there was a very clear and obvious reason why a woman could not give a testi-mony at court, and if you think about the etymology a little, the penalty for perjury becomes clear too...

comment Why is there a modern misconception about Christianity and Science?
Galileo is actually the subject of a myth of his own. Just about everything that "everyone knows" about him is flatly contradicted by the historical record: that he was right about the solar system (he wasn't; he believed in heliocentrism but got all the other details wrong,) that he made great scientific discoveries in astronomy (there was nothing unique or groundbreaking about his work,) and that he was unjustly persecuted by the church for teaching heliocentrism. (See above re: he wasn't actually right.)

comment 1 Timothy 4:1-3 - Are We Still Living in the Great Apostasy?
This question, as written, is difficult to answer. As we've already seen, one tradition will say "it's just beginning" and another will say "it's over now." If you want an authoritative answer, and not a bunch of answers that contradict each other, you need to ask what doctrinal perspective you're looking for.

comment What is the LDS Church's position on spiritual gifts
@StevenDoggart: That's a very broad question in its own right, particularly as the LDS understanding of salvation is very different from the Pentecostal version.
