comment Is lust sometimes not sinful?
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 do Theistic Evolutionists reconcile that Eve was called the “…mother of all living?”
I'd assume that since most of them consider the first few chapters of Genesis to be figurative, they probably assume the name to be chosen as a figurative name that goes well with the story. But it probably varies by OEC adherents, whatever their personal opinion is.

comment Do any Christian versions of 'Just War Theory' address cases in which foes exploit the principles of Just War to their own advantage?
You're not really asking for answers from a defined group or doctrinal stance. Random people from any denomination or group may believe in a just war theory, for any number of reasons. Since this isn't an established doctrinal teaching from a definable group, this is just asking for the opinions of people that just happen to hold that view. This really should be closed as opinion based.

comment Alpha, Omega, & everlasting God?
I'd just like to point out that saying He is the beginning and the end is different than saying He has a beginning and an end. So if the problem isn't a contradiction on Scripture, it's you misunderstanding what's being said.

comment “SIN” after Salvation
By the way, welcome to the site. Don't take the previous comments as discouragement. It can be tough for new visitors to "get" what this site is about. (It's not what you'd think.) As a new visitor, I'd recommend checking out the links provided in my previous comment.

comment “SIN” after Salvation
Sorry, but I'm closing this because as phrased, it's likely only to generate opposing opinions, rather than definitive answers. I hope you choose to participate further, but before you do, please see How we're different than other sites? and the help page.

comment What's the Biblical basis for calling God by the name of Jesus in prayers?
@GregoryMagarshak - One last edit. Don't forget to edit the title so it's clear it's on topic. You want the title to match the question and be on-topic. I've made the last edit and am re-opening. And I've deleted comments that are either too chatty or no longer relevant.

comment Should we be able fast like the fasts described in Bible?
@TheFreemason - I've deleted the comment because while it may be a valid suggestion, it's not one of the valid reasons for commenting. Debating the wisdom or foolishness of something like this isn't what the question asked, it just asked if it's possible. We need to try to keep the comments from being a place of discussion.

comment How do people become the sheep that Jesus speaks of in John 10?
@bruisesreed I missed that. Four or five times reading this and I missed that. You're right. My apologies.

comment What was the population of the world at the time of the flood?
@curiousdannii - I'm reasonably sure he's asking specifically for what Young Earth Creationists teach.

comment Does Scripture mention whether it rained before the flood?
I hope you don't mind, but the title was opinion-based and off-topic, but the body is saved by the last sentence. I edited your title to bring it in line with the question. Please refrain from link-bait titles.

comment Is there modern evidence that the Sun stood still?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about scientific evidence for a historical even that just happens to be described in the Christian Scripture. Unless this is couched as asking for a doctrinal stance, or other official teaching, this is off-topic. This site isn't for sciengtific evidence of any sort, it's solely focuses on established Christian doctrines and teachings.

comment What is the Scriptural basis for Catholics praying to Mary and the various saints?
With the edits, and after reviewing all the comments and getting weigh-in from others, I've cast the third (and final since it's a mod hammer) vote to re-open. I also deleted all the comments arguing about whether this should be open, since they are no longer relevant.

comment What is the Biblical basis for cessationism?
the edit makes this better. Do you mind if I edit it some more, enough to make it suitable for re-opening?

comment How does the Bible teach us to direct our prayers?
@Bubbles and Andrew - please refrain from discussing things in comments. I'm deleting that conversation.

comment does God know the people that are going to hell?
Your friend was basically talking about Theodicy - aka the problem of evil. Short version it's "If God is all-powerful, and all good, then how could there be pain and suffering in the world". I'd recommend a few google or other search engine searches for "Theodicy apologetics" (Apologetics is the study of defending the faith). There's plenty written on the subject.

comment Are there any statistics that show how many scientists are Christians or otherwise believe in a personal God?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a statistic, which is likely to change over time. It's also not strictly about Christianity as defined in the scope of the site, but about personal beliefs of scientists.
