comment Why did God exile the Jews to Babylon?
@MioDio001 This could be turned into a positive question if you made some research effort and focused on a particular scripture, of which there are many. As it stands, this question will probably be ruled "off-topic" and closed.

comment What does the oil in the ten virgins parable represent?
@Stan I agree w/Paul Vargas, I believe you have insights but aren't familiar with our site directives. Either way, I encourage you to persist in your diligence in seeking the truth, and in presenting it in a way which satisfies our site requirements.

comment Why does John the Baptist deny being “Elijah”?
@Nernie No, it is actually a very good question; most people 1st entering this site have a variety of misconceptions concerning it. It is a good practice to familiarize yourself with the site directives and save yourself a lot of grief over "down-votes", "vote-to-close" and "vote-to-delete"(DV's,VtC's,VtD's) which some, including myself at first, had to contend with.

comment What is the significance of 153 fish?
Another 'off the wall' but interesting answer. Strong's "153" in Hebrew is 'edra' or 'a force'. Obviously, neither John nor James Strong 'coincided' '153' with any particular meaning, but both of them recognized it was the 'force' of God to give them 153 fish.

comment The “eyes of a man”
If you re-phrase your question(do an edit) to "What do the eyes mean in Dan. 7:8,(if that is your question) and delete your 'rambling' commentary-save it for answering your own question, you may get a response.

comment The “eyes of a man”
Welcome to BH! We are a little different here, please take a minute and go through our site tour. Are you asking what the 'eyes' mean in regards to Dan. 7:8? Then you should ask that specific question, and save your comments to answer your own question.

comment Assessments of the evidence for the “Gap Theory” reading of Genesis 1:1-2?
Whew, what a discourse! And I have the sense much more could have been said-providing their was space to say it. You can see from Joseph's answer the simple appeal of it, along with the simplified version of the grammar to support it. But on careful examination, it becomes what it is, simply a theory attempting to fill in a 'gap' between science and faith. Thank you for this prodigious effort!

comment Assessments of the evidence for the “Gap Theory” reading of Genesis 1:1-2?
You do an excellent job explaining "gap theory", the challenge is to 'prove' that God had intended a 'pre-creation' universe apart from the 6 day one.

YES! I trust when Frank weighs in we'll see the evidence(or lack thereof) to conclusively 'prove' this theory.

comment What does the oil in the ten virgins parable represent?
@Stanly I have to agree w/Daи here, as the question appears to be more of a comment than a question. Since there are answers already, and the 'mod' team has had a look at it. I would have suggested simply editing the question to "Ask What You Are Looking For", using the guidelines provided. You can answer your own question, if you believe you have further insight to provide. This is not a "Forum" site, and it's hard for new users to get the feel of it at 1st. If you follow the guidelines, and look at other 'top voted' questions, I'm sure you'll get the hang of it.

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.

comment Praying with spirit and understanding, simultaneously or sequentially?
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".

comment What does Luke 18:8 mean, and how is “faith” used in this context?
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.
