comment Does God send a “Strong Delusion”? What is the Context of understanding 2 Thess. 2:11?
Did you mean this to have some relation to the text being asked about? Because in all honestly this sounds like random gibberish — I've seen more cohesive argumentation out of Flack Overstow. I know that's really harsh criticism, but I hope it makes the point that this answer makes flying leaps in unexplained directions and does not connect the dots showing how you got from the text to your interpretation. This is a recurring issue with many but not all of your posts. I know you can do better.

comment 2 Corinthians 5:21 - When and how was Christ, who knew no sin, made “sin”?
This is a fine question but as written it has two parts. One of those parts asking for analysis for how this verse should be interpreted is very much off limits for Christianity but quite on topic for Biblical Hermeneutics. As a result I have migrated the question here to be answered. On the other hand the bit about church history and how the church fathers interpreted this is not on topic here but would be on C.SE. I would encourage you to re-post a version of this question over there that asks just the latter part (and also specifies what group of church fathers you're interested in).

comment In Mark 5:9 does Jesus ask for a name or a title?
You can only assume what you claim to assume in this answer if you have previously assumed that nothing else the Gospel accounts tell us about Jesus knowledge about things that weren't readily observable (e.g. Philip under the fig tree or the Samaritan woman's marital history). If you've started with the presupposition that Jesus was not divine then this argument could make sense, but as far as arguing from this passage you've done nothing but beg the question based on a presumption that other accounts in the same text must be false.

comment Who were the Hellenistic and Hebraic Jews of Acts 6:1?
This may be relevant, but it leaves a lot to be desired as an answer. How do you know this? What were key characteristic differences? What would one study for more information?

comment Does Apostle Paul give a warning against different denominations?
This is really really poor hermeneutics; in fact it has more of the trappings of you going off on a personal rant than it does textual analysis. To top it off your personal opinions an this matter are very unbalanced. I don't dispute that there are aspects of what this text talks about at work today, but the idea of denominations itself involves other factors other than divisiveness. Sometimes they a framework in which the "better way" can actually be lived out. This answer simply fails to engage either the original text and its context or the modern issue and its various facets.

comment What was meant by “paradise” when Jesus spoke to the thief on the cross?
You've not shown how you're getting from "garden" to "paradise" being the same thing. You've asserted it but shown no evidence. Furthermore you didn't address the actual concerns from my first comment (which should be done by editing your post to cover the bases rather that commenting by the way). Lastly I have a hard time the thief would find any comfort at all in Jesus' statement given your interpretation. If the statement doesn't have any bearing on an afterlife and is just about where he's to be buried I imagine he's past caring too much about that.

comment What was meant by “paradise” when Jesus spoke to the thief on the cross?
So your interpretation of this saying is roughly "Today you will be six feet under right along side me"? Doesn't that seem a bit incongruous with the start of the remark? Why make such a big deal about it if he's about to say something mundane? Verily verily I say unto you, today I had scrambled eggs for breakfast. See how odd that sounds? Most people don't start their unremarkable sayings that way, and Jesus hadn't made a habit of saying "Truly I say to you" right before stating the patently obvious.
