comment Will (or “do”) people in heaven get to interact with Jesus, independent of massive crowds?
God is not limited by time (cf. 2 Pet 3:8). I don't think that God would let neither time nor space hinder him from spending "time" alone with his beloved in heaven. :)

comment Reason for creating unnecessary creatures
I too have asked myself this question many times, especially those times when lying in bed, trying to sleep and I suddenly hear that annoying sound of a mosquito ...

comment Why did the Lord create Goliath?
@warren Interesting. In my Swedish translation, it seems that David says that Goliath has taunted the army of God. When reading it again, it is clear that the sentence can also be interpreted as though Goliath taunted God.

comment Why did the Lord create Goliath?
The Israelites were used as Gods tool for punishing the wicked surrounding people, which in turn were used to punish the Israelites when they turned from God.

comment Why did the Lord create Goliath?
It seems that I remembered it wrong. As you say, he defied the army of the Israelites, that is: he defied the army of the living God. One might say that he did this because he was not an Israelite, which would then be the reason but not the crime itself. In Deut. 18:10-11, God forbids the Israelites from doing things like sacrificing their children in fire and engaging in witchcraft. In verse 12 God says that it is because of these detestable practices that God drove out the Canaanites before the Israelites. Not just because they were not Israelites.

comment Why did the Lord create Goliath?
The Israelites were ordered to destroy the other tribes because of their countless crimes, not because they weren't Israelites. In multiple places throughout the Old Testament, God says that he does not rejoice over the death of the sinner, but wishes all to repent. The mission of the Israelites was to be the light and salt to all of mankind. So what did Goliath really do? He defied and cursed the Holy of Israel.

comment Can a non-Christian sell his soul?
@MarcGravell Jay's assumption is not incorrect. Your conclusion that it is, is based on the assumption that sin is (at least mostly) the same as the things considered bad by the society. That assumption is wrong, thus your conclusion is wrong. Many things that are considered bad by the society is not sin and many things that are considered good by the society is sin, because the society has turned from God and therefore it cannot (completely) distinguish real bad (sin) from real good.

comment Biblical Prophecy and Fulfillment
There is actually at least one more point to the validity of the gospels. The gospels are often held true because together they present an intact gospel, but they still differ. If four persons makes up a lie, they see to it that they have the same story, right? Also, most of the apostles died as martyrs, and what would they gain by dying for a lie?
