revised Where does the concept of a “God-shaped hole” originate?
It's not just the phrase that is non-biblical... The concept itself is non-biblical.

comment A “version” of the bible with sentence structure written in English but retaining most of the original untranslated “nouns/verbs/adjectives”?
@Pacerier Three years ago, when I answered the question, I think I had a better reason. However, my memory says that it was just personal preference. I just liked the Apostolic better. It seems like there was an online Greek interlinear, but the format was a little more annoying (or something like that). Again, I'm sure I had a better reason than that, though.

comment What is the Mormon doctrine regarding becoming a god?
That's a good point. I was wrong about the tag implying the answer. However, I still don't believe the "theosis" tag is appropriate, since that also covers the process of becoming like God or joining in union with God. I can see the "apotheosis" tag being accurate, though. The distinction is subtle but significant. Having said that, I'm not sure if adding the "apotheosis" tag will benefit this site much.

comment Does God have a sense of humor? Does he laugh?
While I agree with you, I think that you can't really apply man's attributes to God. Just because we're made in his image does not mean that he behaves and thinks like us. For example, we have a propensity to sin whereas God does not. A related thought: While humor is a good thing and all good things come from God, we can't equally say that just because it came from God, God must share in that good thing. Sexuality is an example of that. In general, applying man's attributes to God is not a good, logical path.

comment What is the Mormon doctrine regarding becoming a god?
Dropped the Theosis tag. That tag itself implies an answer. Also, I don't believe it's accurate.

comment Why is rape not in the 10 commandments?
Absolutely correct. That's also why I noted that non-consensual sex with your wife is not mentioned. Women were considered property.

comment To what degree does the Church of England consider the Genesis creation account to be metaphoric?
@curiousdannii If it were easily answerable, would it be worth a bounty of 500? :P Mostly, I was bored and this seems like a question that should have had an answer by now.
