comment Did Paul write other letters that are not in the Bible?
The "or" in your first sentence implies that some of Paul's letters which were not lost were nevertheless excluded from the canon because they were "not theological". This is not the case.

comment Difference between Augustinianism and Calvinism
Yes, I can look some things up when I get home. What would you like clarity on? Do you just want evidence he believed in single-predestination and not double-predestination?

comment What are the theological implications of “filioque”?
@deps_stats, it's from the "doctrinal objections" link in the previous sentence.

comment How do Catholics reconcile Christ's intercessory prayer with the doctrine of the Trinity?
Be careful: Trinitarianism says that God is three persons in one divine essence. Simply saying that God is one and three at the same time, without further explanation, borders on logical contradiction.

comment Can we trust the Septuagint?
I don't think the example you give is a good one - the Hebrew in Isaiah 7:14 (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaiah_7:14) can mean either virgin or young woman. The LXX translation is only "different" in the sense that it's translators chose a different way to render an ambiguous Hebrew word than the NRSV translators did.

comment Jesus on how seeds germinate
Jesus is using a well known (to the people at the time) word-picture to illustrate a spiritual truth. He is not lecturing on plant biology.

comment The effect of poison on Christians
Mark 16:9-ff is almost certainly a later addition. Most don't consider it part of the original.

comment Take away the gospels, and how do we know that Jesus did what he was recorded to have done in terms of miracles?
The gospels + Paul is 5 sources. Asking about the reliability of these sources might be a good question, but assuming they are unreliable isn't.

comment What is the reason to genuflect when the Incarnation is mentioned?
In my Anglican church, we kneel briefly for this part of the creed.
