comment Why did Paul collect and deliver an offering for the Jerusalem church?
You quoted references to illustrate your point, which is part of our Site Directives. However, you should consider 'quoting the text itself', using the "quote symbol" located at the top of your toolbar and draw your specific inference from the text itself. That way your audience can see the point you're making and compare it with the text you're making it from. Be encouraged! :>)

@All Apparently there is a dimension of "light" that differs from the sun that God created..

comment Is the use of the smallest possible example meant to indicate a complete absence of faith in Jesus sayings related to mustard seeds?
@Caleb I took exception because 1) the OP had put forth effort and edited his original question, which was borderline "prescriptive". There was no attempt on the part of those at that particular time to explain their VTC; I assumed it was because of that reason. 2) Then there are 5 VTC's over "Systematic Theology", a point which had absolutely no bearing and even you admitted was the wrong reason. So, if folks are going to 'throw the penalty flag', A) They should make the OP aware of the infraction, B) They should understand what the infractions are and contribute to a positive outcome.

comment Is the use of the smallest possible example meant to indicate a complete absence of faith in Jesus sayings related to mustard seeds?
@All I am at a loss to explain how a question which asks for the scriptural definition of faith as compared to a mustard seed, one that originates from the text and can be answered by the text, descends into a systemic theological discussion. Do you mean there are systematic theologies without faith? I understand the dupe concern-perhaps the OP can clarify whether or not what he is asking has been answered before. But "systematic theology"....Really??????

comment Could saying that Melchizedek was “without beginning of days or end of life” possibly be a textual error?
Excuse my mispelling of "summarize". However, you could "winterize" your answer if it would help explain your points ;-)

comment Is the use of the smallest possible example meant to indicate a complete absence of faith in Jesus sayings related to mustard seeds?
@PaulDean I love this question-but understand that 2 VTC's have been assigned to it(I'm not one of them). Neither VTC has commented as to why(not the way I do things, but I can't change it). The "Fear" is that any answer would be "prescriptive", and therefore outside of Site Directives. Can you tweak this question to ask for "scriptural understanding"=On Topic, vs "application"=Off Topic, better handled on a Forum site where subjective inferences can be used? Thank you!

@Drake I'm afraid Bruce Alderman has pointed out the obvious-see "Gone Quiet's" response to note the discrepency. Thank you!
