Original Sin Teachings
//Why are there numerous ways in which original sin is taught?//
The same reason there are numerous "denominations"
How many sects are their in the baptist denomination alone, that can't agree. Mainly because they ignore "right division"

Can Satan Tamper Bible
//Where does it say in the Bible that Satan cannot tamper with Holy writings?//
It doesn't have to say it, read some "modern" versions, and it's apparent they have been tampered with

Third Temple Sacrifices
//Will animal sacrifices be reinstituted in the coming third Temple in Jerusalem? What is your opinion?//

They had better be, for some seem to think Christ shedding His blood wasn't enough.
Rom 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
Eph. 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace,
Was Paul smart enough to make up these scriptures? I think not.

The Gospel Of Salvation
//I wonder who here knows the original meaning of EVANGELION, the Greek word most English Bibles render as "gospel"?//
Is this like the original meaning of "GAY"

Was Paul Saved
// So let's be honest with ourselves and figure this out. Why would the Holy Spirit write hard to understand and confusing words thru Paul?//

very simple and easy to understand
2Cor. 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:

Born Again Muslim
Born Again? Mentioned twice, once by Jesus(john 3)as he tells the "Jewish" leader, he should know.
John 3:10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
Why should a "master of Israel" know this? Israel had been born physically in Egypt. their king and messiah was here, they needed to be born again spiritually. Peter an apostle to israel also mentions it

Did Rome Rule The Church
//We have different denominations here//
Believers were persecuted from the apostles' time until Constantine legalized Christianity, sometime later, another Emperor made Christianity mandatory. Any Christian knows no one can make anyone become a Christian. Instead of making everyone in the Empire Christians, the decree resulted in religions mixing into one and calling themselves "Christian". Followers of Christianity, followers of Judaism, and Pagan religions were now in the same assembly. Though the church was called "Christian", only a minority were Christians. Doctrines of many religions combined, making a "church" doctrine part Christian, part Jewish, and part Pagan.
No different today

Early Church Jewish Beliefs
They understood very little

luke 18:31Then he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished.
32For he shall be delivered unto the Gentiles, and shall be mocked, and spitefully entreated, and spitted on:
33And they shall scourge him, and put him to death: and the third day he shall rise again.
34And they understood none of these things: and this saying was hid from them, neither knew they the things which were spoken.

Who Do Monks Serve
Grace or Law?
In general, Orthodox monastics have little or no contact with the outside world, including their own families. The purpose of the monastic life is union with God, the means is through leaving the world (i.e., the life of the passions). After tonsure, Orthodox monks and nuns are never permitted to cut their hair. The hair of the head and the beard remain uncut as a symbol of the vows they have taken, reminiscent of the Nazarites from the Old Testament. The Tonsure of monks is the token of a consecrated life, and symbolizes the cutting off of their self-will.

Who Do Monks Serve
//You will find more mention of asceticism in the Bible than you will revivals, invitation hymns, and altar calls//

You don't actually think any of the above mentioned have anything to do with salvation do you?

Who Do Monks Serve
Hard to find in the Bible

One becomes a monk or nun by being tonsured, a rite which only a priest can perform. This is typically done by the abbot. The priest tonsuring a monk or nun must himself be tonsured into the same or greater degree of monasticism that he is tonsuring into. In other words, only a hieromonk who has been tonsured into the Great Schema may himself tonsure a Schemamonk. A bishop, however, may tonsure into any rank, regardless of his own, also, on rare occasion, a bishop will allow a priest to tonsure a monk or nun into any rank.
