comment What are the “household gods” Rachel stole from Laban?
The best way to add additional information to your post is by editing it, with the edit button. It is more visible that way, and comments are mainly for secondary, temporary purposes. Comments are removed under a variety of circumstances. Anything important to your post should be in the post itself.

comment Why should an altar be made with uncut stone?
For instance, most scholars think the stone age had been ongoing for over 3 million years by the time this passage in Exodus was written, hardly new technology, so your argument is pretty weak. I'd like to know if it is original to you or if any reputable scholar actually thinks this (and how they date Exodus and the Stone Age).

Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics Stack Exchange! Be sure to take our site tour to learn more about us. We're a little different from other sites. Do you have any sources for these claims? What scholars share these thoughts? We care far more how you know things than what you know here. Unsourced material may be edited or removed.

This doesn't show its work in several assertions, which is a requirement on this site. Don't just tell us what you know, tell us how you know it. I've added a post notice for now, but keep in mind that unsourced material may be edited or removed. Also, ideally provide the page number or a link to sources so we can verify your claims.

comment What “filthiness of the flesh and spirit” is Paul talking about in 2 Cor. 7:1?
This is a good answer, but the reason for my downvote is the shift from discussing the Corinthian believers to talking about 'us' which *prescribes*/imposes your perspective on the reader (i.e. all of the 'we' language). This is not a Christian site nor all your readers Christians.

This is a decent answer, but the reason for my downvote is the shift from discussing the Corinthian believers to talking about 'us' which *prescribes*/imposes your perspective on the reader. Also, no work is shown for explaining how James' letter is related to Paul's. Using other texts than the one being discussed and presuming that they agree is an assumption. Not all of your readers are Christians.
