comment Are there Christians who believe Jesus was an ideology and not a person?
By this site's definition of who is considered a Christian, if even one person who self-identifies as a "Christian" believes this, then the answer is "yes". Therefore, one goofball with an idea that's ridiculous to pretty much the entire population of the earth qualifies, I have to wonder if this is a useful question at all. it's on-topic in that it's probably answerable, but what's the point?

comment How is it consistent to refer to Jesus as a god, as son of god, as a messiah and as a prophet altogether?
This is too broad for reasons further explained in Is it valid to ask if “Christianity” teaches anything?

comment If God is good and knows the future, why does he knowingly create people who go to hell?
This question could have been closed for at least three other reasons. I chose this one so that you could see how it was answered already because I thought it would be more helpful than closing it as opinion based, or as general philosophical question without a proper denominational scope, or as a Truth question.

comment If God is good and knows the future, why does he knowingly create people who go to hell?
The question you are asking is the question of theodicy, stated slightly differently: If God is all knowing (omniscient), all powerful (omnipotent) and all good (omnibenevolent), then how could evil exist/how could He send people to Hell/why did he create us capable of sinning. That question's answers address this. Omniscience is the foreknowledge portion of the question, and if you search for theodicy, omnipotence, omniscience, evil, or any combination of those, you'll find that the same question has been asked several times in slightly different ways.

To clarify, I agree with you, but the question itself is not fit for the site, and therefore answering it is not appropriate.

Please check to see if a question is a duplicate before answering this. This particular question has been asked in various guises a bunch of times. Also, this question should have been closed because it's a general philosophical question, and isn't asking for a doctrinal perspective. Another reason not to answer in the first place, but rather to vote to close. You answered well based on reasoning, but this site isn't about that. See this post for an explanation of why.

comment Was Jesus literate?
Please don't simply quote Scripture. You can quote it, but summarize it - tell how this particular passage answers the question. This passage does answer the question, but copy/paste answers just don't cut it here.

comment What are the main differences between the Catholic and Protestant definitions of Biblical inerrancy?
Would you ne willing to amend this question to address infallibility instead of inerrancy? infallibility takes it a step further and claims that the Bible must be inerrant. And if you go with infallibility instead of inerrancy, there's an official Catholic definition that can be used.

comment Was David aware that his words were prophetic according to any doctrines, traditions, or exegesis?
Since the site doesn't allow opinion-based questions, I have to ask what would be considered a definitive answer on this. Since Scripture doesn't record David as saying "these words are prophetic" or anything anywhere near that, what would be an acceptable well-sourced answer? BTW, I'd remove this objection to the question if you were to edit the title to be in-line with the question as far as asking for doctrinal stances.
