In reference to this recently closed question.
I'm curious to know if there is or should be a precedence between biblical basis and truth/is X a sin? questions? The above linked question was closed as an "is X a sin?" question, but it wasn't asked from a personal perspective for which pastoral advice would be a necessity. He read the reference in a Christian review of a movie and wanted to know if the Bible said anything about it.
That makes this question a hybrid. Yes, it's asking if X is a sin. But it's also asking if there's a biblical basis for X being a sin. Assuming the question were better worded to use our specific vernacular ("biblical basis" vs. "does the Bible say"), which rule takes precedence? Would the question be on-topic as a biblical-basis question or off-topic as an is X a sin? question?
If the later, it presuposes that it's impossible to as about the biblical basis of any sin/transgression/act-of-disobedience.
Question: In the case of asking for the biblical basis for a sin, which on-/off-topic condition should take precedence? Biblical-basis (on-topic) or "is X a sin?" (off-topic)?
EDIT: This question was not posted to challenge the closure of the linked question and accedes the point that the Help Center states questions about "what the Bible says about a subject (unless you specify a doctrine/tradition)" are off-topic. My question is, given that an original question is precisely formatted to be acceptable as a biblical-basis question, if it is a question about the basis of a sin, which takes precedence? The on-topicishness of being a biblical-basis question, or the off-topicishness of being a "is X a sin?" question?
If we use the linked question as an example, it could have been worded:
From the Pentacostal perspective, what is the biblical basis for believing the use of the phrase "I said what I had to say" is a sin?
Closed as an "is X a sin?" question, or...
Left open as a valid "biblical basis" question?
