@Narnian: Huh? Are you saying that βαπτισθήτω is conjugated in the indicative mood and not imperative mood?

comment Red Sea or Sea of Reeds?
We must wonder why the translators of the Torah into Greek (i.e., the LXX), who were Jews, translated the Hebrew into Greek as τὴν ἐρυθρὰν θάλασσαν, "the red sea."

comment How do we know there are only three Persons in the Godhead?
1. None others are mentioned. 2. Matt. 28:19 seems pretty clear.

comment Why Don't Christians Accept the Oral Torah?
Does Judaism even have an established definition of what oral law (תורה שבעל פה) is?

comment When & where did the word “Christian” originate?
The answer is good, so we should just edit that into it? Don't you think @Matt?

comment When & where did the word “Christian” originate?
Good answer, but some of those verses cited in your "many times" link have absolutely no corresponding Greek word which can or should be translated as "Christian" (e.g., Rom. 16:16).

comment Was I comforted by my father's guardian angel?
And likewise, there is support for guardian angels. Matt. 18:10 and Acts 12:15 (and Tobit 5:22) being two of them. Point being, your argument that the term "guardian angel" does not occur in scripture isn't a valid argument.

comment Was I comforted by my father's guardian angel?
The term "Trinity" is not in the Bible; therefore, the Trinity is not supported by scripture. As you can see @rhetorician, you can see how your similar argument about "the term 'guardian angel'" is equally, well, not convincing.

comment Reason for loving/worshiping Jesus
Actually, "Loving others is the natural outflow of loving Jesus" isn't completely accurate. Rather, "loving others is the natural outflow of Jesus having loved us first" would be accurate. See 1 John 4:19.

comment Why do Christians worship Jesus?
Zohal, edit your original question to ask one question. If you don't heed my advice, this is going to be locked within a day or two. Your choice. Mods will not tolerate lengthy conversations in the Comments section, which is exactly where this is going.

comment Why do Christians worship Jesus?
I encourage you to choose one question, perform a brief search to see if it has been asked before, and if it has not been asked before, then ask that singular question. Repeat that process for each question you have.

comment Who was St. Joseph's Father? The New Testament seems to give two answers
And then on the other hand, there is a way to read the genealogies in Greek without any contradiction whatsoever, as many expositors have done.
