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?

@cwallenpoole Right. ^^ I didn't catch the joke due to the lack of smilies. ;)

comment What are the reasons for calling oneself a “follower of Jesus” rather than a Christian?
I'd like to point out that using the term "follower of Christ" doesn't have to mean that one doesn't use the term "Christian".

@cwallenpoole The six additional books are deuterocanonical books, considered canon by the Catholics and not considered canon by the Protestants.

comment Is “the ends justify the means” compatible with Christianity?
Also, Jeremiah 38:24-28, the king tells him to not tell the officials of their conversations and that if they ask him, he should tell a lie about the intent. Jeremiah did just so, and as far as I know there's no condemnation for this.

In Joshua, when Rahab was asked by the guards if she had seen the Hebrew spies, she told them a lie, still Rahab isn't condemned for this and this act is not mentioned elsewhere in the Bible (AFAIK). At the contrary, Rahab is mentioned as a person of fath in Hebrews 11:31 and good works in James 2:25. While the second verse mentions that she took them in, it doesn't mention her lie.

comment What is the Biblical basis for saying Christians are “friends of God”?
Note that Jesus didn't call them his friends until he said this. Until that, they were his servants and not his friends. The servant doesn't know what the master is planning and I think this is true for many Christians today. Many have lost the focus on the personal relationship with God, instead focusing only on what he can do for us. I'd strongly recommend Drawing Near by John Bevere.

comment Was the marriage between Abraham and Sarah incestuous?
I actually found the answer when writing this question, but I didn't want to answer it immediately myself. I found two articles discussing this: The first article covers the same ground as the two previous answers. The second article goes a bit deeper and adds that the prohibition by Moses probably was instituted partly for legal issues, inheritance and such.
