comment What is the basis for believing that the wrath of God is not an accommodation?
This answer would be acceptable if you could add references showing that this is a common understanding, and who teaches/believes it. To clarify a common misconception, this isn't a discussion forum. It's a Q and A site with a very specific format. Answers are not to be used to put opinions or make comments/observations, but rather well-sourced answers as to what is taught by some group within Christianity.

comment Are gluten free diets in violation of the word of wisdom?
Please no arguing in comments. It looked like @Flimzy was asking a question: " Is this distinction meaningful to the question? ", which is allowed under the guidelines for using comments - They can be used to request clarification on a post. it looks like ShemSheger mistook his purpose, but all in all, the comments quickly took a turn to look like bickering, so I'm deleting them.

comment When was Job alive?
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 Is the concept of God in Christianity (the Trinity) three Gods or One?
Closing as too broad, as there are multiple views on the nature of the Trinity within Christianity. See Is it valid to ask if “Christianity” teaches anything?

comment Was it just Daniel who prayed toward Jerusalem or did all exiles do so?
@Nathaniel - In regards to citing sources, in this case, I think it's enough to cite the Scripture that shows the instruction to pray toward the temple. The Scripture quoted backs up her answer and makes it more than just her opinion. And to address Lee Woofenden's concern, this seems to answer the question as to whether it was more than just Daniel.

comment Is it likely that Christianity was born from Judaism?
@Flimzy - My initial response to this was in the spirit of this post it's hard to participate in this site even for experienced users... A first time user with a really basic question, give the OP the benefit of the doubt, and guide them along. With the second question the OP asked, I'm less likely to believe that these are honest questions.

comment Is it likely that Christianity was born from Judaism?
I'd say that, as basic a question this is, it should stay open. The site does try to focus on expert questions, but this is a fair question for someone with no background at all, and it is easily answerable. Someone with skill could put a very top-notch, answer to this. Do you really want to close a question just because it's "easy to answer"? Many highly-rated questions on StackOverflow could be answered with a quick google search? (Example)

comment According to Catholic Tradition, what is Jesus doing right now?
Nathaniel is correct. This is, at best, a poorly researched answer, ignoring many other relevant sources and teachings on what Jesus is doing right now. (Interceding for us for example).
