@Flimzy - if your edit is better, keep yours.

I hope you don't mind, I edited the title to be answerable. "Which is right' or "which you should trust" is off-topic here.

Questions asking for God's motives are off-topic here.

comment Why does Nephi believe he can keep all the commandments?
@ShemSeger - Yes... That's why I said "This is possibly answerable by phrasing is as 'according to LDS teaching'" I get that. I'm saying the question isn't specifically asking for LDS teaching, and if that's what the OP wants, it should be edited.

For clarification on why I'm asking, see We can't handle the truth

comment Why does Nephi believe he can keep all the commandments?
I'm not sure this can be answered objectively within the guidelines for this site. Most mainstream denominations teach that it is not possible that we can obey perfectly and that's why we have the need of the free gift of salvation though faith in Christ. This is possibly answerable by phrasing is as "according to LDS teaching", but as phrased, this is asking for Truth rather than a specific denominational teaching. Are you looking for Truth, or a specific teaching?

comment Why should a sinner suffer forever in hell fire?
This answer would be acceptable 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 Did Jesus/God/Jehovah know that Jesus would die on the cross BEFORE coming to Earth?
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? In this case, i know that this is common teaching, the answer merely needs to be reworded as such.

comment Have Creationists advanced any particular Theories of Origin that they claim are falsifiable via the scientific method?
This is much better. Hopefully we can stick to answers that answer the actual question and not devolve into arguing whether those theories are actually valid as opposed to ones Creationists say are valid.

comment Can God kill himself?
Intentional or not this is based an a straw-man definition of omnipotence, not the one accepted within traditional Christian and Jewish teaching. See christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/8242/…. We do doctrinal teaching, not straw-man questions around here.

comment Is creationism falsifiable?
This is the only answer (so far) that even attempts to follow the site guidelines of answering what a particular group teaches rather than what is "true".

For now I'll settle for deleting chatty comments that do not clarify the question. Please, everyone remember that comments are not meant to provide pseudo answers, or provide opinions or conversation. Please see this section of the help center if you're unsure about what comments are for.

comment Is creationism falsifiable?
@bruisedreed and The Freemason hit it on the head. This question was never on-topic in the first place. This question is about whether the Creationist POV meets a certain, particular criteria defined within science, not Christianity. If this asked whether "group X claims it's falsifiable" then it would be about Christian teaching. Unless someone comes up with a compelling argument that this is on topic, I intend to delete this whole mess. As stated, I don't see a way to salvage this so that it's actually within the site guidelines.

comment What is the basis for the claim that Judaism is a Christian Heresy?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this blatantly ignores the simple fact that Judaism existed long before Christianity and is therefore temporally impossible.
