comment Sabbath vs Sunday - Why and who
@Iulian - I notice several of these are reasons why Sunday is a special day of celebration, but none of them are reasons why Sunday should replace the particular functions of Saturday (which has its own set of reasons for being special) as a day of rest.

comment Sabbath vs Sunday - Why and who
@Iulian, you might want to adjust your first reason - light was created on the first day, but the sun first shone on the fourth day (Gen. 1:14-19‌​).

comment Biblical support for why something is a sin?
Reminds me of the Euthyphro dilemma - are laws given by God because they are good, or are the laws good because God has given them?

comment Multiple wives and concubines | male and female “original” intent
Heh - You'd think "no longer two, but one flesh", if taken literally, might well leave open the possibility for that "one flesh" to take on a spouse. At which point they would, one assumes, "no longer be two, but one flesh" again.

comment Was there enough water in the world to cover the earth?
@Jas3.1 I mainly offer it as a suggestion based on the text itself. My personal opinion lately has been that the parallels between the Creation and the Flood suggest that the latter is actually in itself a new Creation. In that mindset, the recession of the Flood waters would be like the Creation's "let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear"—this also requires a miracle when water is already covering the whole earth as, ordinarily, water just doesn't gather that way.

comment What is a Christian's justification for a legal prohibition of homosexual marriage?
I notice that one of the New Testament passages that mentions homosexuality appears to specifically exhort Christians to decide issues like this within the church and among church members, and not to take it up as a matter of the law - (1 Corinthians 6:1-11).

comment What does “gates of hell” mean in Matthew 16:18?
@El'endiaStarman It does make it look like a mixed metaphor - upon this rock I will build my church suggests that the rock is a firm foundation, fixed in place, and immobile, but the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it suggests that the rock (or possibly the church) will be hurled against the gates to knock them down.
