I'd like to see you continue to participate, but right now it seems you're struggling understanding what types of questions are acceptable.

Steve, when you get a chance, I would really like to recommend that you spend some time reading How we are different than other sites? and Tips for editing a question to make it suitable for re-opening Several recent questions, including this one, have been closed for the same reason, and those posts will help you to avoid that pitfall.

If you'd like to attempt to edit the question again to get it re-opened, I would recommend following the guidelines explained in Tips for editing a question to make it suitable for re-opening

comment What action would Christian ethics guide this missionary to do?
Hi, I'm giving the feedback that @bruisedreed said might be coming. As phrased, this question is only answerable by giving opinions. "Christian ethics" is something that varies from group to group and person to person. It's subjective. See Is it valid to ask if “Christianity” teaches anything? As this is asked, there are likely to be varying opinions, but no one clear answer that is definitively "correct". Opinion-based questions simply aren't on -topic here.

comment Do people in Heaven and hell effect us here on earth?
I don't see how this is answerable as scoped. First, it's unclear what you mean by "Influence". Intercede with God? Somehow communicate with us? Physically affect us? There are several opinions. Come back as ghosts? Possess us? Each of those is a possible question on its own, but each is opinion-based.

comment Why does God encourage humans to beat other humans?
If that were changed/clarified to be "Have any theologians/apologetic organizations given an explanation, it becomes answerable, and then, @curiousdanii, you can find a post from an apologetic organization/theologian that answers the question by explaining the faulty assumption. I've gone ahead and made that edit.

comment Why does God encourage humans to beat other humans?
@curiousdannii and georgechalhoub, I'd like offer a suggestion based on this Meta post: How should we cope with questions that contain (possibly wrong) assumptions?. As stated, the question is close to off-topic as opinion-based. What saves it is the sentence "How do we explain", which could be asking for an answer from a theological or apologetic view.

@FMShyanguya - you're right. This question and answer are not OK by current standards. They were Ok at the time. I've locked them as such.

comment To a YEC, how does a metaphorical interpretation of Genesis 1-3 distort the gospel?
@Flimzy - are you looking for an answer that's personally convincing to you? Or one that is an established YEC view as supported by a group like Answers in Genesis or another similar group?

comment Why does God encourage humans to beat other humans?
I just want to remind you that if you're looking for how theologians have addressed this question, you're OK, but if you're looking for an answer that's personally convincing to you, your question is off-topic for this site. we're not here to convince you. Also, I've deleted all the debate comments. It's not OK to debate in comments on any StackeExchange site AFAIK. And it's definitely not acceptable here.

Discussions in comments... Not OK. I've deleted all of the chatter. If you wish to have discussions, take it to chat.

comment What is the significance of Noah, after the flood, getting drunk and cursing his son who saw him Naked?
Welcome to the site! This answer would be a lot better if you could add references showing that this is a common understanding, and who teaches/believes it. On this site, we're not looking for personal interpretation, but rather focusing on what various Christian groups teach. See How we are different than other sites? and What makes a good supported answer?

comment Is there any scriptural support for the belief of convulsions/seizures being a sign of the Holy Spirit's presence?
Please clarify. The way I read this, the verse is about a man convulsing because an evil spirit forces him to as it exits him. The question asks about the modern practice of convulsing because of being overcome by the Holy Spirit, as found in Charismatic churches. That's something totally different. For now I'm letting this stand, but answers are meant to answer the actual question, and this doesn't. If you can edit to clarify, this can be salvaged.
