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 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.

comment What is the head covering referring to in 1 Corinthians 11:4-6?
@GalacticCowboy, every rule/law in scripture comes down to a matter of the heart. There is a principle behind it all, but the specifics still matter. Paul used the principle of not muzzling the ox that treads the corn to show that it's ok to pay pastors, but that didn't make muzzling the ox any less relevant.

Good article, but realize that unless the Bible specifically tells us that something is for the culture of the day (which usually involves abrogation) then it still applies today. We judge the culture by the Bible, not the other way around. God wrote his word for all people, for all time. So it's still unbiblical (shameful) for a woman to have short hair, and a man to have long hair.

comment Was Goliath killed twice?
The KJV does a better job by inserting the text "the brother of". It's critical in Bible translation/exegesis to always look at the parallel passages in the Bible.
