comment Is the book of Daniel critiquing Humanism?
I have written in numerous questions copiously about this topic. I could write a book about it-but I will attempt to 'focus in' on your specific question. Basically, the answer is YES INDEED!

comment If Jesus is only a member of the triune God, how can He be a mediator between God and men?
@All Again, this is a "Jesus Only" question. There have been numerous expositions to try to convince otherwise: everyone is entitled to their opinion, however, from Nicea on, the church has made her position known.

comment A thousand years is one day
@Liam Seems more of a rhetorical comment than a properly posed question. I would vote to close unless you have a legitimate question.

comment How did Paul “see that someone had faith” in Acts 14?
Perhaps the best answer that can be given is in the context of Paul's preaching, he saw the man was "receptive"(had faith to believe). +1

An excellent rendition of "dikaiosune" can be found here wenstrom.org/downloads/written/word_studies/greek/…

comment What is the Righteousness of God in Romans 1:17?
This is the justice/righteousness debate brought on by the Reformer's insistence on "Salvation by faith alone, apart from the law". Whereas "dikaiosunE" means righteousness, it can also mean justice(18. Plato used the word in this sense, therefore, dikaiosune meant “adjustment to the law,” and that is the sense in which “righteousness” is a correct translation, but “justice” is equally accurate.) The word used in Greek had legal ramifications, and the Vulgate translated it iustitia enim Dei, keeping the legal sense.

comment Inconsistent translations of Revelation 13:10?
@jlovegren This is why I like the KJV-yes, it uses the TR rather than the Alexandrinus, but take a step back and look at what it's saying; is God helpless in the face of adversity-essentially Buddhist? Or does one "reap what one sows" a truth illustrated throughout the Scripture? Modern thought has crept into modern interpretations.

comment What is meant by the term “the times of the gentiles” in Luke 21:24
@Richard I have difficulty with your question: 1) Are you merely asking for exegesis on "Times of the Gentiles"? That would be a good question. 2) Are you asking if the interpretation of "Times of the Gentiles" supports a Futurist/Dispensational hermeneutic? That would also be a good question, providing you cited your source for (1). Are you attempting to extrapolate a different meaning than what you quoted? You could address it by "answering your question" or ask a question stating your meaning(with support).

comment Women in Galatians
Your answer was good, but you could have embellished it more with textual reference to make your case. You might want to consider some of the suggestions on what constitutes a good answer, found here(meta.hermeneutics.stackexchange.com/questions/653/…).

comment What, exactly, counts as a “vain repetition” (Matthew 6:7)?
@MattGutting I appologize-I don't know how to get the 'Greek' text to appear in my answer. I'm not a Greek scholar, hence I'm not certain of the etymology of the word. It's almost certain the Lord didn't speak it in classic Koine Greek, therefore, whatever word was translated represented the word best describing the original intent of the Lord. It appears that all of your sources use the same definition; the discussion appears to be about modern translators finding 'relevancy' with their audience vs it's most accurate rendition.

comment Is Jesus Christ the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit?
@Vince I sense there's more to this question than meets the eye-are you arguing for "Jesus Only"(Apostolic Holiness)? A single passage will not resolve the controversy, yet if you look at Jesus's baptism, the evidence for the Trinity is irrefutable. There is also the matter of Christian tradition, from the Didache onward which confirmed the Trinity.

comment What is the traditional understanding of God's Marriage Contract(Ketubah) with Israel?
@caseyr547 Thank you for your response! I vigorously disagree with Replacement Theology; one reason is "When was the wedding ceremony for the church?" None, that I know of. Also, Dual Covenant Theology rests on 2 different sacrifices-where was the other sacrifice? I like Irenaeus's answer in this regard(home.newadvent.org/fathers/0103409.htm). I am more concerned about how this marriage covenant was made, and what was the traditional(read OT) understanding is in regards to it.
