I know a few of you VTCed (maybe for different reasons than that listed?), but I really don't understand the 'off topic' designation for this question: If we want to know what the Bible says about an issue, what methods can help us to find all the relevant scriptures? I could (just barely) understand a 'too broad' VTC and would be happy to refine the scope further under advisement - but 'off topic'?? The description "General philosophical or sociological questions" is far removed from my intent with this question. What's going on here?
edit: I've modified the question a little - is that sufficient to address concerns or are there deeper issues at play here?
