comment What is the meaning of 2 Peter 3:8 (1000 years as 1 day)?
@WoundedEgo "Likewise "patient" and "longsuffering" are different than "unaffected" or "imaginary", no?" — absolutely, I don't mean to imply otherwise when I say that God transcends time. What I do mean to imply is that God is sovereign over time rather than subject to it.

comment What is the meaning of 2 Peter 3:8 (1000 years as 1 day)?
@WoundedEgo "At least that is what the text says" the text says both "with the Lord one day is as a thousand years" and "and a thousand years as one day" — if Peter was only speaking about patience, would not the latter suffice without the former?

comment How does John 5:28-29 fit with the dispensational hermeneutic
This question seems to have been closed in response to this meta post, but I'm not sure the close reason is valid as it appears to be well within scope.

comment How would Adam know what “you shall surely die” meant?
@rhetorician please see my comment to Scott above :) A question: if the issue is disobedience, did that occur when the fruit was eaten or when Eve first decided in her heart to trust the words of the serpent over the words of her creator?

comment How would Adam know what “you shall surely die” meant?
@ScottS a question that asks "how" is predicated on the assumption that the "how" matters: to show that it does not is an answer to the question. I've left it to other answers (eg yours!) to argue the 'how' because the question does not interest me personally at that level.
