comment About the belief in the after-life as indicated in the Old Testament
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about one man's belief, rather than established doctrines. And that man was Jewish, not Christian.

comment What do people fear in Jude 1:23?
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 Drawing of a Christian helping his own assailant
randomA, I un-deleted this. It's actually on-topic IMO for reasons explained here, and someone else had already voted to un-delete. The biggest recommendation I'd give, however, is that if you''re going to post a "help me find this" question, please try to include as much detail as possible.

comment Is it true that Jesus was simply someone more intelligent than the average and not a supernatural creature?
It's better not to even answer questions that are seeking Truth. That type of question is off-topic, and answering them gives the impression that it's OK to ask those questions. See How we are different than other sites? and We can't handle the truth.

comment What about the dinosaurs?
Others, your points are good, but I'm deleting them because it's not OK to debate in comments. Don't forget that we're not here to convince anyone, just explain what's taught.

comment What about the dinosaurs?
Also, bear in mind that this site is not a place to debate who's right or wrong. It's not a discussion forum. Please also take the time to read the help center and and How we are different than other sites?

comment What about the dinosaurs?
This question is too broad by far. there are several misconceptions here, and to fully answer your question, dozens of more focused, specific questions need to be asked and answered. Most have been asked already on this site. If this is a serious inquiry, start by using the search feature to search for keywords like creation, evolution, dinosaurs, flood, etc.

comment Why does the LDS Church put an emphasis on prepping?
@PaulDraper which is exactly why I specifically said "emergency preparedness, which goes by the term "prepping" today."

comment Refuting false claim about The Catholic Church in the Medieval Ages
@curiousdannii and Geremia - Please avoid discussion in comments. Comments are not an acceptable medium for debate. Also, some of the comments here could be turned into the more focused, specific questions I suggested, so you can get the specific claim as well as the apologetic answer to it, all while earning rep and behaving constructively.

comment Refuting false claim about The Catholic Church in the Medieval Ages
This seems a bit broad for this particular venue. The only short answer is to get specific charges, not sweeping generic ones like the one listed, and then refute those. Start with "Give me specific examples of how the Church suppressed knowledge". Otherwise there's no reason to bother refuting the claim. If the attacker can't produce the basis for the claim, then it's simply a baseless claim that should be ignored. To try to address a baseless claim gives it credibility. Demand specifics that can be proved or disproved, and refute the specifics.

comment What is considered chaste behaviour from a Catholic perspective?
I think the part that can be read as offensive is " The Catholic position seems to be that sex is to be between married couples, to avoid contraception and to ensure that male orgasm occurs inside his wife's vagina." That's a gross mis-characterization of the stance of the Church or the reasoning behind it. It's off enough to be easily read as sarcastic statements about their teachings. This would be better if it were simpler. "Does the Catholic Church teach that only intercourse is pre-marital activity, or does it include foreplay? If the latter, where's the line?"

comment Is there biblical evidence that God knows my unspoken thoughts?
Welcome to the site. As a new visitor, I'd recommend checking out the following two posts, which are meant to help newcomers "learn the ropes": help page and How we are different than other sites? This question isn't really answerable except by personal opinions, which is really not the scope of this site.

comment Why is vengeance for the Lord?
@HelpingHand and The Freemason, please refrain from discussions in comments. If you need to converse, take it to Christianity Chat. I've deleted the off-topic comments and left the ones that are actually relevant to the question.

comment Christians are doomed to hell?
@FMS - I think the answer is "No it's not supported", with an addendum last half of the last sentence agreeing that it's odd that an unsupported perception is posted on the site.
