From time to time there might be a question that need to be put on hold because it is a duplicate or the question is not clear and too broad. But even after the person who asked the question finish reediting, it might not be made available immediately unless it has enough vote. This is a good system which in ideal situation work for good for the community. In a more realistic situation because of the sensitivity of a particular question, a group of people with different and conflicting interest might be trying to flag or even put on hold some questions for particular reasonings that might be justified.
- How Christians explain that Isaiah 7:14 refers to a virgin? This question is not about finding truth on that passage but about doctrinal issue on how Christians substantiate their belief in that passage.
- How Christians explain why Greek Septuagint of Genesis 3:43 refer to Dinah as a virgin? This question is related with the previous question in such a way that an answer to this question will help Christians to explain their doctrinal stand in Isaiah 7:14 for the virgin birth of Christ. Jewish apologetic particularly use this passage.
- Did the early Church Fathers believe Christ assume our fallen humanity? This question is important in order to answer one of my other question on the difference between Original Sin and Original Guilt. I've made a few questions in connection with this like Was Calvin a Nestorian. I made those questions so that later I can make an all encompassing question to ask the question I've been waiting for to ask. I even personally invited Patristic scholars to this site just to have their expertise on the subject matters because there are not enough Catholic and Orthodox on this site. I can understand how ridiculous or may be confusing my question might be. But that's because Catholic and Orthodox in comparison with Protestant think differently. Our presupposition differ. Unless this question is reopen it would be next to impossible for me to address Sinlessness of Theotokos in the Third Constantinople, Dormition of Theotokos, Perpetual Virginity of Theotokos in the Third Constantinople, Ephesian Marian Devotion, Filioque, Purgatory, and Toll Houses in Florence, Papal Infallibility in the Third Constantinople, Maximian Synergism, Palamas Deification, and Nicene Hierarchical Ecclesiology. This particular question is the corner stone to the rest of my over arching questions. If you're interested to have further interesting questions that you never have heard before please help me by voting to reopen this question. You won't regret your decision.
- Is there a future for ecumenism? What is the main obstacle for Christian unity? This I agree might sound opinion-based and truth question. But far from it, I want to use this question as a basis or hub if you like to connect my overarching questions. The main thing which lead me to Eastern Catholicism and not Eastern Orthodoxy is solely rested on this question. This is a fact question not truth opinion based question. I'm not asking what people might think about Ecumenism. But I want to learn what hinders such Christian unity. What doctrinal problems that have not been resolved. I want to use that knowledge to address it one by one. I give one example on the Doctrine of Justification: At Colloquy in Regensburg (except Luther who can't come) Calvin, Melanchthon, Bucer, and Bullinger all signed the document clarifying dual justification which later adopted by Jonathan Edwards' Evangelical Obedience and Richard Gaffin's eschatological Justification by works. I'm not arguing that all Protestants agree with this. But I'm going to use this question as the connector to my other ecumenical questions in order to clarify one by one the doctrinal issues which still divided us. Our differences in regard to the nature of Justification is analogous to the past Christological dispute on the nature of Christ. In 433 one nature Christology and two natures Christology are reconciled even though we know in 451 our Church was divided. But we also note that there have been resurgence among us to seek doctrinal reconciliation even with the miaphysite Copts. The Catholic view on one nature Soteriology and Protestant view on two natures Soteriology are analogous with the past disputes. If you're interested to see how I connect these dots please help me by vote and/or giving me advice on how to salvage this question so that it can be reopened to ask with a proper question that fit this site regulation.
Any vote to reopen this question or/and advice to help me improve this question is welcomed.
