comment 2 Corinthians 8:1-14: When is willingness to give counted?
Your amazingly clear and very logical explanation in the first part of your answer has fully cleared my confusion. You have fully understood my exact problem and just ''nailed it''. Thank you!!!! However, would you, please, elaborate a bit on the last two sections in your answer (''Yet when do those in poverty count and deserve praise?'' and ''The Governmental Expression''). I don't think I fully understand them.

comment 2 Corinthians 8:1-14: When is willingness to give counted?
So, how does that all explain the contradiction that I am talking about? "Paul is not only commending the Macedonians for that but holding them up as an example he wants the Corinthians to follow" - Which is exactly that puzzles me here because it seems to me to be contradictory to his own words in 2Cor 8:12 ("For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not"), from which seems to follow that Macedonians' willing mind must not be accepted because they were poor, that is, they 'had not'.

comment What is the author's purpose in writing Acts?
Do you completely discard the option that the "Acts" (the author never used this word as a title) could simply be a second part of the book, the purpose of writing of which he had clearly stated in the first part, thus, having no need to restate it in the second part?

I didn't downvote, but, honestly, I don't see how your answer is addressing the apparent contradiction that I am talking about in my question.

comment How do they explain “If I will that he tarry till I come…” (John 21:22) in Christianity?
@DickHarfield - Okay, migrate it there. I did want to ask this question on BH.SE first, but then for some reason thought that it would be a better fit here.

comment 1 Cor 15:5: Jesus “was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve” - why “twelve” and not eleven?
@RadzMatthewCoBrown - Can you, please, elaborate. I didn't get your logic.
