Most people want to stick their head in the sand and ignore problems, in an effort to avoid conflict. I refuse to be that passive person. Problems are there to be fixed, which means that first they have to identified. Denial is not just a river in Egypt.

comment Was the discounting by the manager in Luke 16 a dishonest act?
Discounting is a business process that happens all the time, where one will take less money earlier so that he can have the cash on hand instead of getting it later. It's not a dishonest process, but one worked out between both parties for mutual benefit.

comment Does Gen 1:1 refer to day 1 or the entire 6 days of creation?
@Jon, a good book that answers Sailhammer (and other theories like framework) is James Jordan's Creation in Six Days‌​.

While I don't have the specific answer to your question, here's a link to a blog post I did on Gen 1:1.

comment What role should textual (lower) criticism play in biblical hermeneutics (if any)?
I wouldn't say 'always' a bad thing, but 'most always used to diminish the authority and authenticity of scripture' I would (of course I wasn't really clear on my other comment).

comment Has the meaning of “Love” changed enough to warrant substitutions in Bible translations?
Actually, rethinking things is what does change culture on the physical scale, with the Grace of God and Power of the Holy Spirit changing it on the spiritual scale. In other words, the grace of God enables men to think differently, and it that rethinking is what God uses to change men's hearts. Culture is religion externalized.

The Bible is always to be taken as a whole, so you always have the larger context. One of the components of exegesis is to analyze the nearer context to see if the word is being used differently. Sometimes that takes some study.

comment Does the Shibboleth story help us date the book of Judges?
Please don't tag questions that don't apply to the whole 'old testament' or 'tanakh' as such. It dilutes the effectiveness of the tag. The 'judges' tag tells us the location in the text.
