comment What are the possible interpretations of 1 John 2:19?
The central question still seems to be missed in this answer—in what sense were they not of us before if they have now left? i.e. this passage seems to indicate that there actions are only a revelation of what their prior condition was.

comment Is Ecclesiastes a book of negative wisdom?
+1 Clear, concise, convincing. Yes, my earlier view was doubtless connected to the fact that I grew up reading the NIV and NLT (which also renders it meaningless).

"Rejected" may still be weak in the sense that one hardly rejects his wife if he has any lingering love for her. But good answer.

To be honest, I fear that this may arise from a moral repulsion to some of the statements of Scripture, which so often causes for dumbed-down interpretations, as Kierkegaard was fond of pointing out. I would like to do exegesis rather than eisegesis on this passage.
