I am a scripting language connoisseur, regular expression aficionado, network geek, general lover of Linux and a frequent contributor to open source software. I transitioned to programming from other work because I was too busy automating my own work environment to actually do the other work. I have a hobby interest in cartography. For more see my personal site. Most importantly, my life is defined by the grace of God given to men through Jesus Christ. It is my ambition that everything I do would reflect His glory and point people towards Him.

Is Jeremiah 8:8 implying that the biblical text was changed?

comment If we are “Saved” by grace, then why are we getting "Judged?
The edit looks much better, but this is shaping up into something that looks like it will fit better on Christianity as it is less about interpreting the words of verses and more about applying them to the spiritual reality of life. To answer that well it will need to be done inside of some kind of theological framework. I'll migrate this to CSE, but first can you give it some sort of doctrinal/traditional scope that you are interested in staying inside of (as CSE covers many different traditions using the name "Christian" both orthodox and heterodox, specifying scope is necessary there).

comment What is the literal meaning of “royal priesthood” in 1 Peter 2:9?
Compounding the issue of Strong's being the wrong tool to define what a word means, you appear to have referenced at entry that is a known error.

comment What is the literal meaning of “royal priesthood” in 1 Peter 2:9?
You appear to have mistakenly used a concordance rather than a lexicon to define a word. In reviewing the actual usage instances your statement that «"royal" is βασίλειον typically means palace» seems to be unsubstantiated. After that this becomes pretty sketchy as far as hermeneutic process goes. Can you provide something a little more robust to back this up?

comment Were 1 John and John’s gospel written by the same person?
@curiousdannii The for/against split is mainly only necessary on C.SE because we don't have the expertise across multiple theological frameworks to include consistently good arguments from both sides of an issue in single posts. That is much less of a problem for textual analysis questions like this one and we don't generally do that split on this site. In fact we encourage answers to include analysis of all positions and to conclude with whatever one seems most favorable to the author. That model implodes on C.SE but works alright here where "showing work" is a mandatory part of answering.
