comment How do you know when to understand the Hebrew word עלום (olam) as “eternal” or simply a long duration?
I agree with H3br3wHamm3r81 about the context. In fact, negative expressions convey the concept of something being eternal way better than such adjectives like "eternal" or "everlasting": "...the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary" (Isa 40:28), "...before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me" (Isa 43:10), "But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end" (Psalms 102:27)

comment 1Cor. 5:5: “To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh” - In what way?
@GoneQuiet - It's not so much "deliver unto satan" as "destruction of flesh" that made me contemplate that possibility.

comment Do or do not judge: How is 1 Cor. 4:3-5 not contradictory to Cor. 5:12, 6:4-5?
Your answer didn't just add "very little". In fact, it added a lot. It made me think now that we, as Christians, should definitely be ready to call sin a sin, however, we should be twice careful when it comes to a particular person. In fact, if we are not forced to pass a judgement on someone particularly, than we better refrain from doing that.

comment What does it actually mean “Judge not, that ye be not judged”?
Thank you, but I am afraid it's a bit too abstract. How far should I (or any other man) go in examining myself in order to be qualified to judge? Examining oneself seems to me to be an endless process as long as we possess sinful flesh. And another question is this: If I see a sinful act in someone, which I admit I myself often commit, does that mean that I have no right to say that that act that that man is committing is a sin? Shortly put, can I call someone's sin a sin even if I myself don't deny having it?

comment What does it actually mean “Judge not, that ye be not judged”?
"It was a call for hypocrites to examine themselves, and thus be qualified to judge others" - I am a bit puzzled by this. I guess by examining oneself everyone will see that he is not an will never be qualified to judge others, isn't? If so, then does it mean that humans are forbidden to judge others at all in this verse?

comment Is Paul the last apostle?
Revelation 2:2: "I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars" - If Paul and the twelve were the only apostles, then there wouldn't have been a need to try those claiming that they were apostles and later find that they were liars. The only thing, which would've been needed is to check if the one making such a claim is Paul or one of the twelve.

comment What day of the week was the Pentecost in Acts 2?
Interesting. Thank you. sorry, but I can't dive deeper into it at the moment. This matter seems to be quite deep and complicated, but the parallels in your answer seem to make it simple and, I agree, they are really breathtaking!
