Why is old age called second childhood?

Old age is called "second childhood" because as we age our bodies tend to shut down and not function as they once did.

What audience was Mark's Gospel written for?

Mark is commonly believed to be written for a Roman audience, mainly because of his emphasis on action and the omission of details of lesser interest to them. Mark's Gospel was written for the benefit of a Greek/Roman readership.

It contains fewer (or shorter versions) of...

What does Paul of the Bible mean I die every day?

This is ok: when he said I die daily he meant he no longer lives for himself but every day he becomes closer to God by doing God's will and not his own.

This is the real answer: We are all pieces of divinity playing the game of life....
