comment Is 'all-things' literally including any conceivable thing in Rom 8:28?
"When you dive into the context of the passage, you see why Paul writes what he writes" ...please show us what you mean. On this site we're looking for more than unsupported assertions; we want you to show us your work and help us follow your train of thought to your conclusion.

This is a theology question. Belongs on C.SE.

comment Does the Bible say the Earth is flat?
@BruceAlderman Also it's pretty clear from the OP's explanation (never mind the site they posted on) that they were looking for contextually-sensitive exegesis. Out of curiosity, did you actually read the entire question and my entire response?

comment Does the Bible say the Earth is flat?
@BruceAlderman Thank you for that unsubstantiated assertion... Regarding Jesus' statement about the smallest seed in the garden, please post a separate question. I can't chase tangents in the comments.

comment How to separate exegesis from eisegesis in this example?
@e.s.kohen Haha... True, I took it as a given that he read the text. Of course I did so because I know Mike & had a good idea what he was driving at with his question... which is an important part of exegesis. So maybe we could at least agree that I attempted exegesis? Mike's response would seem to indicate my assumption was correct and so I'd argue on that basis that I successfully attempted exegesis, and therefore I think it's safe to say I did exegesis. Thanks for the brain twister though!

comment What is Paul referring to in 1 Timothy 4:14?
Thanks. +1. I'm not as interested in tradition, but I appreciated the exegetical insights.

Hmm... interesting take. +1 I heard something recently that defined Evangelist in the same way you have here.

comment Qualifications for deacons and pastors in 1 Timothy 3:1-12
@RalphM.Rickenbach That is a common assumption made by many modern Western Protestants. As to whether Scripture agrees, that is debated. Personally I think not; Shepherd is a gift, like Prophet or Apostle, determined solely by the will of God, irrespective of character. Elder, in contrast, is an office, to be sought after, based on character and experience -- not gifting. Totally different on all three counts. (Caveat being that Elders have to do some "shepherding", just as fathers do, whether they're gifted as a Shepherd or not.)

They're also good for sacrificing.
