In 1 Corinthians 10:8-9 says twenty three thousand died from the isralites but if you read numbers 25:9 you see that twenty four thousand died. Look at numbers 21 6-10 you'll see that the people repent they noticed they've spoken against God so God directs moses to make the serpant on a pole and those who had been bitten by the fiery serpant which God sent (...

Context - Betrayal and Resolving Contention : Metaphorical: In this context, "hair", and "authority over one's head" - are evidently metaphors: men are not "literally" the heads of women, nor ...

In cases where a precise literal translation is important, I look up the passage in the Berean Literal Bible translation in biblehub.com: Anyone having been born of God does not practice sin, because His seed abides in him, and he is not able to continue sinning, because he has been born of God. The Apostle John refers to the behaviour of someone ...

How can the apostle John say that those who are born again cannot continue in sin, yet the apostle Paul says that some Christians do lead lives of continual sin which grieves the Lord and requires Him to judge them? Actually John does not say "born again", but rather "born of God". Also, the original text does not say "No one ... will continue to ...

Paul only speaks of having "visions" and "revelations" of the Lord - 2 Cor 12:1, Gal. 1:12-16. He uses the word ὤφθη (Greek - ōphthē) to equate all the appearances in 1 Cor 15:5-8. This word was used almost exclusively to denote supernatural/spiritual apparitions and the appearance to Paul was a "vision" of some sort. This indicates that Paul was using ὤφθη ...

Paul was not writing for us; he was writing for the Corinthians. And so, he was not talking about sin and punishment, but about the establishment of his church in Corinth and, in particular, the loyalty the Corinthians owe to Paul. Paul compares the Corinthians to babies, whom he has fed milk not solid food (1 Corinthians 3:1-2). While they are quarrelling ...

Paul actually equates the appearance to him (which was a vision) with that of the others in 1 Cor 15:5-8. No distinction is made in the nature of appearances so the best supported inference is that these were the same type of spiritual visionary encounters. This is further supported by Paul's evident lack of knowledge of any physical encounters with Jesus ...

To me, a non denomination believer, this verse also applies to defiling someone else's temple. To defile/destroy the temple brings the wrath of God (the Father). The Greek word for "will be destroyed" is used in 2 Cor 7:2 Make room for us in your hearts. We have wronged no one, we have "corrupted" no one, we have exploited no one. This may be a mild ...
