comment Las palabras definidas como genero ambiguo como “internet” ¿se deben utilizar con artículo femenino o masculino?
Entonces entonces es correcto usarlo con artículo, porque es el uso que se le da.

La RAE tan solo menciona que la mayoría lo usa sin artículo, pero no dice que sea incorrecto poner artículo.

comment Translation of “church planting” vocabulary
@jrdioko Well, the thing is that I see it works quite different, I don't think even I understand what you mean. For example, in a town there are churches in different neighbours, and your community is the church of your neighbour. And only the Catholic Church or a religious order can start a new church, not an individual, unless it's in aan area without any other church, for example, in missions, and I guess under permission from the Catholic Church.

@jrdioko Then I guess we have to wait for a Spanish speaker Protestant, as in the Catholic Church this is not common. Most of the Spanish-speaking community is Catholic compared to Protestant, maybe that's why "church planting" is not heard. Here is some data.

comment What are the differences between “el mar” and “la mar”?
Note that there isn't any real connotation or difference, the meaning is always the same, as by definition of "nombre ambiguo". It's just a matter of preference in choosing the gender depending on the context.

comment What are the differences between “el mar” and “la mar”?
In poetry, I guess in a poem about the sea fits better "la mar" because it's how sailors use it.

comment Translation of “church planting” vocabulary
Is this new church part of another church or group? Do you use it in any religious context, or just in protestant or catholic ones? I was thinking that maybe it has relation with the protestant community, as in Catholic or Orthodox denomination the churches are usually build by decision of a higher hierarchy.

@AlfredoO Si pones el ratón encima de "amb." verás un texto que dice "nombre ambiguo". Por cierto, el título de tu pregunta ahora no tiene sentido con lo que preguntas, creo que deberías cambiarlo.
