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.

comment What is Yahweh's gender?
We'd really like to see more than a straight up quote for an answer. Can you tell us some in you're own words how this quote fits into the bigger picture, perhaps mention any relevant counter arguments, and properly identify who you are quoting and why they have any authority to speak to this issue?

comment Does the adulterer in Matthew 5:32 cause the spouse to commit adultery or make her a victim of adultery?
You've got some good stuff here but I think you wander a little too far from our site guidelines on this: "Answers should stop short of prescribing a contemporary application." Perhaps instead of the last couple paragraphs you could use the space to beef up you're case with connections from the text that you think people will need to make sound applications themselves.

minor readability and formatting tweaks, a few wording adjustments to focus in on the issue

comment How should we understand the “Cleansing of the Temple”?
This really really needs a citation confirming the alleged connection with Gen 14. Answers should provide enough data that somebody else could follow the clues and reconstruct the 'how' of an interpretation even if they disagree with it.

revised How should we understand the “Cleansing of the Temple”?
moved info that helps explain the interpretation from comments to the body; this sort of thing should really be explained from the beginning as part of showing your work not just giving a conclusion

comment “A god” or “God” in John 1:1?
This is mostly good content, but it isn't the full story. The other translations not covered here have various reasons for doing so that are not arbitrary (and not even all theological). Only if you were to review the rest of the picture with the same rigor as you do here would a whole picture emerge.

comment Does Solomon say that trades, where lifting and carrying are involved, are a punishment for sin?
What translation are you quoting here? Have you done any research of your own with commentaries to try to resolve this on your own? This and your last few questions have not shown any research effort. As a site catering specifically to experts this is something we expect you to show at least some respect for.

revised What is “sin that leads to death” in 1 John 5:16?
rolled back change that I think cast a different doctrinal position than intended and tried a less invasive approach
