I'm basically a self-taught, now inactive, web designer who still seeks to learn more about css (and some javascript) while pushing it to its limits: all as a part-time hobby between my Ph.D. studies in Systematic Theology. For those interacting with me on Biblical Hermeneutics, this meta question of mine will reveal a lot about where I come from regarding that topic.

comment Are sins of the future forgiven? John 20:23
I could tell by your follow up paragraph after the scripture quote that it had to be a "error" in the statement. But I did not want to assume that, which is why I did not just make the edit myself.

comment Are sins of the future forgiven? John 20:23
I believe you are missing a "not" in this sentence: "Paul made it crystal clear in another place, however, that because all our sins--past, present, and future--are forgiven, we are [not?] therefore free to commit sins to our heart's content." Correct?

comment Is the “White Stone” of Revelation the “Urantia Book”?
@davidbrainerd: While I am not sure that I disagree with you about it being received "once one gets to heaven" (I'm still pondering if that is true), I'm fairly convinced that it is not "obvious" that is. From the textual evidence itself, I would lean toward it being something gained at Christ's 2nd coming to earth (based off Rev. 1:7). I would encourage you to possibly investigate your comment further and come up with a textual argument of exactly where/when (if possible) the "white stone" is given and add that as an answer here for further proof against it being the Urantia Book.

comment Accuracy of Alfred Edersheim's “Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah”
I'm not sure I can answer this question, but I was wondering, who to you is a "respected New Testament scholar" (this list?). So any writing post Dead Sea Scrolls/Nag Hammadi discoveries that use Edersheim in a favorable way?

comment Are the periods in Revelation a single period of 3 and 1/2 years or something else?
@Joseph: Thanks. That is assuming there is a grammatical nuance there at all. As the OP in that question notes, "some manuscripts have ὅτε," except it just so happens that the "some" is the "majority," so while the OP dismissed the fact that it could be ὅτε in all seven places, I would not be quick at all to dismiss such. For the record, I generally hold with the minority of (modern) scholars that the majority text is the correct reading. If such is the correct reading, then nothing is indicated at 8:1 for the 7th different from the other six.
