Welcome to BH.SE. Can you back up your claims?

comment What is the significance of Ezekiel's description of God's heavenly chariot in chapter 1?
@Wikis I was in a Bible study and was reading several commentaries for it. I lost my steam on this answer and it garnered little attention so I didn't return. I'm afraid now that I would learn more from this answer than be able to add to it... but I'll keep it in mind the next time I study Ezekiel. :)

comment “the first day of the week” in 1 Corinthians 16:2
I see you've edited a lot since I first made the comment, so I just deleted the comment. It's been a long while since I made it and I would have to study back through to give you helpful feedback at this point. However, I don't really participate here much anymore; I've found other avenues for my energies because I'm burnt out by the meta battles. So let it stand---glad to see you have come up to speed on the site. :)

So how do you explain the fact that he does in fact answer her request?

comment Why is 'Sabbath' often plural in the Greek text (both LXX and NT) yet translated as if it were singular?
@Dan my answer is also not as complete as I would like but it at least expands on this answer somewhat.

comment What is the original Greek translation of John 1:1?
You seem to think that there is no grammatical reason for reading this as *God*—which, quite frankly, is patently false.

comment What is the original Greek translation of John 1:1?
Are you arguing from the capitalization in the version of the Greek text you have? That is a weak argument, because that distinction is not original (tho I do agree with your conclusion).

comment Is Ecclesiastes a book of negative wisdom?
The summary argument is powerful. If it is a book of negative wisdom, that is an incongruent statement tacked on the end as if to recover from a book that was a little too gloomy... and how does that jive with inerrancy? Not very well.

comment What does UNDER THE SUN relate to in Ecclesiastes?
Ope, too late for me to flag it correctly—but if this question were cleaned up it would still be an duplicate of this one anyway.

comment What does UNDER THE SUN relate to in Ecclesiastes?
More like "God sees it" than what? This question reads a little like a rant, which is okay for a forum but not for Q&A site like this. If you are asking a genuine question, you need to reduce the amount of argument in your question—or add counterargument. Then, you are allowed to post an answer to your own question. Though I would caution you that answers which do not cite specific parts of the text and show contextually why you think they mean what they do are unlikely to be favored on an exegetical site.

comment Does Paul refer to his past or present evil/sin in Romans 7
You seem to be equivocating on "flesh". What exactly do you mean by it?
