comment How do you know what is God's will in a particular situation?
Reb Noson of Breslev zy'a cites the holy Baal Shem Tov that we should know that literally everything that happens to us in our life happens exactly as G-d intends it to, and for the sole reason of bringing us closer to Him. All we have to do is do our best to do what is right according to the Torah, and strive every day for a closer relationship with our Creator.

comment Mordechai - Religious Leader or Political figure?
I downvoted because the question seems to me to be predicated on an explicit rejection of the Gemara, which would run contrary to the context of this site. In rejecting the Gemara from the start, you are also not asking a question to get an answer, but rather asking to get the answer you want.

comment Wearing hats and Jackets
@DoubleAA arguable! Look at last week's parsha. A turban and robe look suspiciously like a hat and jacket to me...

Why would this be a chidush? We've been wearing hats and jackets for centuries.

comment Beef from cows?
I wonder if the same holds true for Cholov Yisroel or if we can expect that those animals are treated in accordance with tzaar baalei chaim.

comment What is a good place to buy kabbalah seforim online?
Since Sefer Hagilgulim is on hebrewbooks.org, you could always order a print copy.

Since one stops for kedusha anyway, why not?

comment Zimun and Bentsching (Bircat Hamazon / Grace After Meals) with Jews who ate non-kosher food
@Will it is very common, in the states at least, for bread products to have dairy ingredients or at least to be manufactured on dairy equipment.

comment Why was the “Ark of the Covenant” lost?
You are asking several questions, some of which are only tangentially related to one another (if at all). Consider splitting it up in to different questions to get better answers.
