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 Why does the word “void” in Romans 3:31 mean “nullify”?
For reference, it does not appear to be a footnote issue, what you linked to had alternate translations. Some translators chose "make void" and others "nullify" but the general sense is the same. Can you clarify whether your question here is about the meaning of the verse or an issue with the word "void" in English? Judging from the E&L site sending this here there seems to be some confusion about what your actual question is here. Can you clarify so we can handle this properly?

comment Which is considered more reliable about Jesus' words, Mark or Q?
@ScottS Fair enough, that would be needed to make this even a half way decent answer. On the other hand I wrote it as a a kind of canary to see what sort of answer the OP was looking for. At this point I'm not sure I want to sink time into something that is ½ an inch from community closure and the OP has demonstrated that they are fishing for the answer they want to hear, not the actual answer. I'll try to find a few minutes to expand, but I'm feeling like the canary died.

comment Are bats described as birds?
@Davïd and Mark, this question was spawned by some controversial comments included in an answer to a related question on a much higher traffic SE site. The thread has been cleaned up but the link to this remains and the question hit the SE network wide hot-list spilling some traffic over here: hence the unusual voting pattern.

When you say "this is unsustainable from the text alone," are you referring to the local context of Ezekiel or the greater context of a whole canon?
