I'm saying that there is more than one staunch way to define a word that was one of the better English words available several hundred years ago. Other translations use different words to get the thought across to people who just can't look beyond a single meaning and ignor context context.
Never heard of that?
The whole point of the channel is to argue/debate. Don't apologize. I was just concerned about a potential stalker... we encounter that happening sometimes and we nip that in the bud as soon as possible. If you know him and cool with him emailing you... then that is good enough for me.
What I am saying that because we have perception there is no need to be concerned with questions such that posed here.
Not necessarily. :)
Thank you. I generally agree. The answer to 3) sounds a bit like scissors-paper-rock... :)
Evolution is an observable natural phenomenon. In this way, it is a part of God's creation. But the funny theory of evolution by "natural selection" presented by Darwin definitely does contradict the concept of transcendent God. The assumption that evolution is a random process implies that the universe is in an ergodic equilibrium. This contradicts both the fundamental principles of physics and the concept of Creation. A form of paganism (or atheism for that matter). Indicates a deficit of basic education.

I would walk in to his store, gather up a bunch of expensive things, like I had some huge project I was undertaking, take it all to the cash desk, and ask for the owner. When he comes, I'd say, "I need to buy all this stuff, but I'm gay. Can you help me, or do I need to find another store to spend all my money in?"
It's actually a contested point whether or not Paul was actually a Roman citizen. The claim that he was comes from the book of Acts, which was written almost a century after his death, and two centuries of scholarly debate on the question have not yielded any consensus. That being said, the idea of Christianity as a "barbarian religion" was occasionally used by Pagan polemicists and probably entertained privately by a lot of Roman Pagans. As a talking point, though, it proved to be not worth defending, as barbarian religions has already become quite de rigeur by the end of the 2nd century, and only got trendier as the Empire wore on.
Once you show that he made a wedding cake where at least one of the couple was divorced or where at least one of the couple was a fornicator, this common criminal no longer has a religious leg to stand on. He has been exposed as a pathetic homophobe.
Scratch an atheist, find the moral soul of a Presbyterian teetotalling scold.

How are numbers important in religion, other than mere symbology?
They should have been banned years ago.
I answered and I answered correctly. Slavery is not outlawed in the US and it's citizens are in bondage.
To be fair if you start out with the idea that the wind and god are equal phenomena then you can also believe that an infinite number of invisible fairies wearing T-shirts are the wind, process of elimination notwithstanding.
