A complete run-down on most of the theories is found over at Christianity.SE, if you are interested.

This... Yes. It's one theory. (Sorry, I couldn't resist.)

comment What does Hebrews 6:4-6 mean?
As a side thought, How much doctrine should we allow? is still a pretty open question.

comment What were the Corinthians doing when they “baptized on behalf of the dead”?
A small little reference and yet so many people have based entire beliefs around this verse. +1 for a question that I'm surprised hasn't already been asked.

comment Did Jonah expect to die when he was thrown overboard?
@JonEricson Possibly so. That would make a good followup question...

comment Did Jonah expect to die when he was thrown overboard?
@JonEricson It seems that, in verse 6, Jonah considered his life spared. From that, it seems that he thought he was a goner but was then spared (while still in the whale's belly). Personally, if I was in the whale's belly, I would presume that I was about to die slowly. Jonah doesn't seem to think that way, though.

comment What does the prohibition against women speaking in church in 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 mean?
@vasquez If you disagree with the answer, please post your own interpretation. From my interpretation, the passage is crystal clear.

comment How can we determine if a text is sarcastic?
Also, is it safe to presume that Item 2 there is a sensus plenior interpretation of that passage?

I think that if Paul had said these things in the order that you presented them, it might make your case much stronger. However, Jumping from 1 Cor. to Gal. back to 1 Cor. to 1 Timothy... it seems that this narration isn't quite in order. Do you have any external sources that support this understanding?

comment What is the meaning of “calculate” in Revelation 13:18?
Probably not with a calculator, given they didn't exist when the book was written...

comment Is the person who “denied the faith” in 1 Timothy 5:8 still a believer?
Good points. It seems like I once heard that the early church (pre-1-Timothy letter) were having trouble because they thought that Jesus was saying that we should ignore our parents. (Matt 10:37 and Matt 12:48-50, for examples)

comment What did Paul mean when he said, “work out your own salvation?”
Oh, I think it's fine as it is. I just wanted to make sure you knew about that. :)
