comment What about those who lived before Christ long outside the reach of Israel?
Therefore, I think that this question is not really the same thing as the other three that you've linked. The fourth question is the same as this question though, but from a slightly different perspective and much better put, so there's no reason to open up this question again.

comment What about those who lived before Christ long outside the reach of Israel?
Of course, every people on earth gets saved through Jesus, but what I am thinking about is how this got to be for those who lived outside the reach of Israel at that time. Those who lived in Israel were supposed to believe in and to lean on God and to trust that he would save them, and I think that the surrounding peoples were supposed to see and embrace that. But how could the peoples who had no possibility to hear about Israel get saved?

comment What about those who lived before Christ long outside the reach of Israel?
Okay, I get you. The exact topic is close to, but not the same as, the other questions. It is about what God could have as a plan for salvation for those who lived before the time of Christ and long away from Israel. It might be the same as for those who have not heard the gospel (and live/lived either before or after Christ), but it might also not be the same. As you can read in my answer to the question about how non-hebrews got saved before Christ, I think think that the main way to get saved then was to hear about Gods work and believe in him.

comment Were there provisions for salvation for non-Hebrews in the OT?
Shouldn't the title be "... for non-Hebrews" or "... for non-Israelites"? As far as I know, the term "jews" refer to the people of Juda and not the hebrews/Israelites in general.

Okay, thanks. I guess you are right about it being to broad and to close to the other questions. Pity it would have to be closed, though. It'd be really interesting to see what people here would have to say about this specific topic.

comment Is God of Anger or of Love?
Interesting thoughts about Israel, I have not really thought of it that way.

comment Sex outside of marriage is a sin. But what about “less than sex”?
Matt 5:28. If it involves some kind of sexual desire or lust, it would be equal to adultery. From my personal experience, the question in itself is easy, but accepting the answer and applying it to your own life is another matter. That's why the question is thought of as a difficult one.

comment Is murder allowed if God tells you to do it?
God wouldn't order someone to slay any other human. The days of the Law and the Covenant are gone and we live in the days of the new commandment and Mercy (sorry if I didn't get the terms right). Take a look at Ephesians 6:12.

@Richard Murder is slaying with an ill intent, out of your own reasons. The slaying committed in the Old Testament is not murder, they are divine punishment ordered by God and carried out by his own people. Carrying out the punishment of death is not the same thing as murdering.
