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.

comment What happened to the 40 Jews who vowed not to eat or drink until they killed Paul?
For would-be answerers, this question would be completely off-topic as opinion based, except for the last sentence. The only acceptable answers would be some cited reference from some scholar or recognized authority, such as an official Catholic teaching, etc.

comment What happened to the 40 Jews who vowed not to eat or drink until they killed Paul?
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?

Shredder and laovaltai, please refrain from holding a conversation in comments, and take it to chat instead.

comment If lesbians breed children without men, would God even consider them Human?
@curiousdannii - I'm pretty sure that Elect-In-Training here is referring to parthenogenesis, which occurs naturally in some species, but not in humans. It can be triggered artificially in humans. There has been some speculation in some mainstream media about whether or not it could someday enable humans to be born with no sperm. So far, the process is meant to provide viable stem cells for research, but human embryos have been created through the process, leading to debate on the ethics involved.

You seem to be having trouble asking questions that are on-topic. It seems you've mistaken the purpose of this site. I hope you choose to participate further, but before you do, you should read How we are different than other sites? and then the help page. This question is problematic, for example, because it is based on assumptions and asks for our opinion on something based on that assumption. It's just not answerable with anything but opinion.

comment Why does God ignore amputees but listens to invisible disease patients?
When you start to ask why God does something, you're only going to get opinions for answers, unless God has clearly stated His motives in Scripture.

comment What is the basis for Baptism by immersion?
However, with the edit, I see now that it's a duplicate.

comment What is the basis for Baptism by immersion?
I hope you don't mind but I edited this. First, it's not "Drowning" it's "immersion". Nobody gets water in their lungs here, they just go under water. I'm hoping that's just a language barrier issue. The rest of the edit made this question on -topic, asking for the basis for the practice instead of asking if the practice is "right".

comment science and God
I'm deleting the debate in comments. (Yes, even the ones I agree with.) If you wish to debate, take it to chat, please.

comment Where do Christians believe the Qur'an came from?
I've cleaned up a lot of the comments. I actually think this answer is accurate (in that we don't think it came from our God), just not well-sourced. It does read like caseyr547's opinion. @caseyr547, you mentioned that you don't care what Meta says. I hope that isn't an outright statement that you don't care about following the site's guidelines,

comment Why did Jesus need to be baptized?
For now, I'm closing this as primarily opinion-based. However, if you'd like to edit it to be within site guidelines, feel free to do so and flag it to ask for it to be re-opened. As guidelines, I'm recommending Tips for editing a question to make it suitable for re-opening

comment Why did Jesus need to be baptized?
There will be many different possible answers based on who you ask. The Baptist answer would be that it was not necessary for salvation, but symbolic instead. What perspective were you looking for?

comment Doubting my salvation
Hi and welcome to our community. To clarify a common misconception about this site, we're a fairly academic question and answer site run by a secular company. We have numerous members who are Christians, but because of the nature of this site, we don't answer "advice" questions. It's not that we don't want to help, but on the contrary, we don't feel that it's in anyone's best interest to try to do so on this site. For more info, please see this post: Pastoral Advice Questions

comment Why are the books of Matthew and Mark almost identically written?
Welcome to the site! This next has nothing to do with the quality of your question, it's 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 two posts, which are meant to help newcomers "learn the ropes": help page and How we are different than other sites?
