comment When a person speaks in tongues, do they understand what they are saying?
@curiousdannii - I think it does... I think he's saying "No, the person who speaks in tongues doesn't understand, you need an interpreter" The answer certainly isn't well supported/referenced, but most new visitors don't know the guidelines right off the bat.

comment When a person speaks in tongues, do they understand what they are saying?
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?

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.

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 Does God encourage humans to harm other humans in this verse?
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 Does God encourage humans to harm other humans in this verse?
@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 Does God encourage humans to harm other humans in this verse?
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.
