comment What does it mean to be an heir of God and a joint-heir with Christ?
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 How is alleged redaction in Isaiah 45:20 dealt with among Christian commentators?
This looks like a "Refute This" question to me.

comment Where is the mentioning of people still living from the time of Christ in New Testament?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about verse identification, which can be done with a Google search.

This really isn't a good fit for the site. An explanation of why can be found at the following meta post: Where's the line with the “verse-identification” tag?

Welcome to the site, but I'd recommend a quick search before posting questions. See this search

comment Burying a fish as a Christmas tradition?
Further research shows that lutefisk, another fermented fish (although not one made by burying it) is a traditional Christmas meal in Norway. I'm sure this is all related, so you set me on the right path. For me the bottom line is this probably wasn't a joke, even though it's cultural, not Catholic. You were helpful, thanks!

comment Burying a fish as a Christmas tradition?
@davidbrainerd - I'm pretty sure that's it.He mentioned eating burying it one year and eating it the next, which I thought was crazy until I saw from your link that it's typical to let it ferment in an earthen pot for 6 months. If you can work that into an answer to the effect of "No, it's not a Catholic tradition, but it is possibly a family tradition or cultural one", I'll accept it. The question is "Is it a Catholic tradition?" and "No" answers the question.

comment What does the Bible teach about domestic discipline?
This site has a blanket ban on "who is right" questions. This falls squarely into that category.

comment Is this age the only opportunity for salvation?
I don't get the question. Baptists believe in eternal security, meaning you cannot lose your salvation. If you can't lose your salvation, you can only get saved once. Hence it only happens on one singular day. It has nothing to do with "this age". That's mixing up two distinct theological beliefs. However, we DO believe that this age, this life is our only chance for salvation, based on Hebrews 9:27 among other verses.

Welcome to the site! This next is just standard to help new visitors avoid misunderstanding the site (as I did at first.) As a new visitor, I'd recommend checking out the following posts, which are meant to help newcomers "learn the ropes": the help page and How we are different than other sites?, and What makes a good supported answer?

comment Is God using the current time to teach mankind what it would be like had Satan succeeded in his attempt usurp God’s throne?
Questions asking for personal exegesis are off-topic here.

comment good ways to deal with “It's just a pagan holiday, he wasn't even born then”
I know this isn't the same question as the one I marked this as a duplicate of, but the answer addresses your issue. it was either close this as a duplicate, or close it as "primarily opinion-based" because we all have our opinion on what a 'good" response is.

comment Is fasting an eating disorder?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about simple term definitions, which can be found in any dictionary, and not a question limited in any way to Christianity.

comment What issues do Catholics representing God in fiction historically face?
Also, as the comments go on, might I suggest a chat room on the topic? That might be a better venue for getting feedback discussion-style anyway, and it appears there's a bit of interest in pitching in.

comment What issues do Catholics representing God in fiction historically face?
Another mod piped up and disagreed with keeping the current version closed, and gave good reasoning, as did others in comments here. You're all right. The current version is workable. I'm reopening, and if you don't mind, deleting the obsolete comments regarding the closure and re-opening.

comment Recognition of Previous Marriage by the Roman Catholic Church
@MattGutting and Bye - Usually I'm quick to vote to close, but this could be interpreted as asking what the official Catholic doctrine is, which would be on-topic. Although it would be far simpler to talk to a Priest in the Catholic Church, particularly the Priest of the Church you'd like to get married in. There may be some flexibility that varies from Priest to priest...
