@Jon, Kazark, shall we remove the reference to Mike's answer since he deleted it?

comment David and Goliath: David's Reasons For Fighting
@Monica speculation: knowing about the reward offered a) increased the sense of shame that no-one was found willing to fight Goliath, and therefore David's indignation and/or b) as no-one else would fight Goliath despite the great reward, made it less inappropriate that David, a mere boy, should stand up - he obviously would be Saul's last choice unless he was Saul's only choice and David may well have understood this

@Jon just to complicate things further, I thought you should know Mike deleted his answer! Sticmann may I add my welcome and thanks for your excellent and well reasoned/supported contributions - just the sort we hope for here :)

I'm not sure the reason for the downvote - I think this is a good question.

comment Ecclesiastes 4:12 A cord of three strands is not quickly broken
@J.C.Salomon I'm not sure if it is objectively true to say the reference 'is not needed' - as that is a subjective issue. A Christian may argue the opposite (ie that the answer is incomplete without it). It is best in my opinion to leave that decision to the answerer whatever our personal views - we are, of course, free to vote/comment as we please and provide answers that we prefer :)

comment Does Paul refer to his past or present evil/sin in Romans 7
In that case you'd edit this answer - you should be able to do that on your own answers with the 'edit' button just under the post, and with enough 'rep' you can edit other peoples answers too which is something new users find very strange but is important for how the site works. Usually you'd only edit someone else's post to correct spelling/grammer/formatting - changing the meaning of what someone else has written would be frowned on :-)

comment Does Paul refer to his past or present evil/sin in Romans 7
an afterthought: the husbands you equate with Adam/Christ but perhaps Paul does not intend a direct analogy at all - isn't the point that release from 'a law' was always possible through 'a death' - the death in question here is the death of Christ.

I'm hoping to have my own go at answering this if I can get my thoughts in order. If you have the time to revisit what you wrote and think you could improve it, I'd like to encourage you to do so - answers are the lifeblood of the site so that benefits everyone :) If you'd like to chat through how to go about this or your thoughts on Romans 7 in general, do pop into the site chat room.

@Blessed I think he is a type of Elijah. Would that fit with his name in your view? Are the other names significant?
