comment Who was Neri, father of Shealtiel?
@RaphaelRosch the ideas that the text is infallible and/or historical are hermeneutical presuppositions, and an approach can be hermeneutical regardless of where it falls on those issues, as a clarification.

comment What does “a double minded man” in James 1:8 mean?
We're not interested in people's opinions apart from how they came to those conclusions, and personal meditation and divine revelation typically don't fly as sources here unless you also deal with the text in its original historic, literary, and linguistic context first.

comment What does “a double minded man” in James 1:8 mean?
Thanks for answering, but we're a little different from other sites that study the Bible. We don't appreciate prescriptive answers, stick to description. Stick to the text and describe what it says, don't prescribe actions or beliefs to your readers. This is not a Christian site. We also require answers to show their work.. I've removed the prescriptive content from this post. Please expand and show your work as defined in that post

comment Does 1 Peter 2:8 suggest humanity is destined or called to purposes set by God?
Hey @BenPotter we have deemed questions that are 'searching for a text(s)" to be off topic here. It is perfectly fine to ask about a specific text but we don't allow questions asking for additional texts to support an idea. We start and work up from a specific text here. I've made a slight edit to focus this solely on the 1 Peter passage.
