comment About prophesies in the Book of Daniel
@user128932 You don't have sufficient 'rep' to get a chat room. I looked up your verse(Dan. 12:4), and I saw that the KJV and NKJV are almost identical. Your point of contention is with the NIV(New International Version) which uses the ending you attribute to the NKJV.

@user128932 To use my 'native' vernacular-"You betcha!" I edited your question to clean up spelling, grammar, and punctuation, and to attempt to convey your question more succinctly.

comment What does Luke 18:8 mean, and how is “faith” used in this context?
@Onlyheisgood. I appreciate your comment, but could you incorporate it in a response? That gives you more 'room' to make your case, and others can view and weigh in on your response.

Paul allows for tongues publically in vs 27; albeit with interpretation. I believe the better answer is context(when and how tongues should be used), rather than "is tongues a valid expression of the gifts of the Holy Spirit".

Thank you for your response! I believe you adequately dealt with the Scofield note(although Hal Linsey and others use it to affirm their belief in pre-trib rapture. Wayne House and Thomas Ice focus on the 'avenge speedily', although it remains to be seen how 'speedily' those with faith are avenged. I still hold to the 'active present sense' these authors use, it's just that their 'justification' for it is the church's departure, something your examination refutes.

comment “Pass over” or “cover over” in Exodus 12?
I don't have the language skills to answer it, but the picture of the blood applied to the lintels and doors lends itself to 'cover'. There are numerous other examples where the blood 'covers', and therefore judgment is 'passed over' the individual(or nation).

comment Did Judas repent or feel remorse?
@All The deeper question is "Did God grant him repentance"? He was certainly remorseful, and the money he received did not make up for the condemnation he felt. Yet instead of pouring his heart out in contrition before God(Ps. 51), instead he hung himself, judging himself unworthy of receiving mercy.

comment What kind of desire was given to Eve?
@briangardner I essentially agree with this answer, except I believe that much more can be said. Obviously, Satan used the 'divide and conquer' method, dividing Adam and Eve, and putting Adam in the position of choosing his mate or God. The judgment on Eve is obviously her need to rely on Adam, yet to Eve is made the promise of "her seed" will destroy the serpent(Satan) who tricked her, reverting the effect of the lie that caused her to fall.

comment Is there a difference between “punishment” and “discipline”?
@Andrew I believe if you find a particular text to reference from, and stick with that, you can get your question answered. You will need to re-edit your question starting with the text, then asking is it means such. Otherwise CSE is probably your best option.

If Paul did as you suggested, he would be guilty of taking the Lord's name in vain. In short, wrong answer. If Paul sees the gift of tongues as an operation of the gifts of the spirit(1 Cor. 12:10), how can he say that it is ludicrous to exercise the gift?

comment How can the translation of δοξης as “glory” in Romans 3:23 be justified?
@FrankLuke There are several scriptures one could argue are a direct translation from "kabod"; in Josh. 7:19, Joshua uses "Give glory to God'(kabod), and when the Pharisees questioned the blind man in John 9:24, they say, "Give glory to God"(doxa). Perhaps the greatest example would be the angels singing in Koine Greek, "Glory(doxa) to God in the Highest". ;>)
