comment Where can I find scans of original Biblical manuscripts?
Yeah, every religious book has no extant original manuscripts and has textual variants. This applies to the New Testament, the Tanakh, and the Qur'an.

comment Does God ever impute sin?
@lonesomeday: It's more beneficial using a lexicon to understand the meaning of the original word, i.e. Greek word (and since Paul was quoting the Tanakh, the Hebrew word).

comment Does the Church acknowledge any revealed book given to Jesus by God?
Matt: 4:23: And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.

comment Does the Church acknowledge any revealed book given to Jesus by God?
Needless to say, Muhammad had it wrong, just as he did most other things about Christianity. The Gospel, or as the Qur'an calls it, Injil (إنجيل), isn't a book, but rather, the "good news" that Isa (Jesus) preached to the people of Israel. That's what the Gospel literally is. Yes, there are four books known each as a "gospel," but this name is given to each because each predominately contains the very gospel that Jesus preached. However, Jesus did not receive these very books from God, nor did he write them.

@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."
