comment Translation of Acts 13:48
Keep in mind that Strong's is a concordance, not a lexicon. However, in this case it even explicitly states that it means 'appointed' when in the middle voice. But a concordance will not tell you that the verb occurs in middle voice in this context, and thus the translations cited are correct. A Strong's concordance is no replacement for learning Greek and a consulting a good lexicon.

comment Does 1 Peter 2:8 suggest humanity is destined or called to purposes set by God?
I've removed the entire last section which is an statement of belief in contemporary Christianity and has little to do with the text being asked about in its original context. Keep in mind that the main point of your answers should be to answer the question asked, not to proselytize.

comment Job1:6: Who are the “sons of God”?
A reminder appears to be in order that this is a Q&A site, not an opportunity for you to expand on any idea that comes to mind from contemporary Christian theology and practice. Stick to the text and answer the question asked.
