Please cite a specific text. Also, keep in mind that Strong's is a concordance, not a lexicon.. Do you have a source for someone claiming a specific passage is misinterpreted or did you make that inference yourself (mis-)using a concordance?

comment What is the “secret of the kingdom”?
you're welcome. It's an adjustment for all of us, myself included. In my first few answers here I had quite a bit of language that I would never use in an answer here today.

comment What is the “secret of the kingdom”?
Be sure to describe your beliefs without prescribing them to readers. Keep in mind that here we focus on the text in its original context and not on its application to modern religious adherents of it. Ideally change some of the language which appears to assume a Christian audience. For instance, Christ is not telling us something in this passage, rather he told his disciples.

comment Does Isaiah 40 indicate (along with science) that the universe is expanding?
Please don't post a link to an image search. Choose a specific image that makes your point and embed (and properly reference/cite) it in your answer.

comment In John 19:28-29, why did Jesus say “I'm thirsty”?
@Daisy perhaps so, but comments are not the place for debate.

comment How is the Shema interpreted by those who think Israel had henotheistic beliefs?
It could be fixed very easily by replacing "Most scholars" with names of actual scholars and references to their works. I myself subscribe to DH to some extent, but answers here need to show work.

This answer does not show its work, which is a requirement on this site. I'd love to see it edited so that work is included, but in its current state it is not an answer by site standards.

comment Is the Old Testament and levitical law valid?
This sort of question is not on topic here. You may wish to ask on Christianity and the question can be migrated if you'd like it to be.

comment How is Jesus with us when two or three are gathered, if he is still hanging out in the clouds?
Questions about "us" are clearly seeking to apply the text to a (presumed) Christian audience, which is off topic here. Also, the connection between these two texts is not clear (aside from a Christian belief in canonicity). This question has been migrated to Christianity.SE. If you'd like to focus the question on a specific text and understanding it within its original historical, linguistic, or literary context (not on its devotional implications for modern-day religious groups), please edit and vote to reopen.

comment To cover, to remain concealed, or against the covering?
the original question simply asked about the meaning of a specific word, which is clear. This is not clear. You are blocking your own road to understanding.

comment To cover, to remain concealed, or against the covering?
I'm not sure what the extra content adds aside from confusion. This makes the question unclear and appears to be much content that belongs in an answer rather than in the question. Also, see this post as there is much ill-informed speculation in this "question".
