If you'd like, I can dig into "least" a bit more...

Most doctrines state that we should help everyone out since we don't know who is or is not a Christian. Other scriptures support this doctrine.

comment Is Keller's view of the father in the Prodigal Son parable a reasonable interpretation?
@Ray I agree. This seems to be on topic after looking over Keller's work.

comment Who subjected the creation to futility in Rom. 8:20-21?
"in classical Greek, has the general signification of expectancy, relating to evil as well as to good. Thus Plato speaks of living in evil hope (“Republic,” i., 330); i.e., in the apprehension of evil; and Thucydides, of the hope of evils to come; i.e., the expectation or apprehension." (Vincent, M. R. Word Studies in the New Testament Vol.) In context though ("hope that creation will be set free"), I agree that this is "hope of good" rather than "evil hope".

comment How does the Noah's Ark narrative relate to the Gilgamesh flood account?
It is an interesting question (so +1), but I don't think it's on topic for this site since it's not asking about the Biblical text, but about other beliefs, myths, stories, etc. (so VtC)

Trying to make the question more about the text and the interpretation rather than the book itself.

comment What is the difference between exegesis and hermeneutics?
It kind of is for meta. But the difference between exegesis and hermeneutics is actually exegesis itself. So... I'm not sure where that leaves it!
