comment Why doesn't Jesus give away all his money?
@ezaspi This is an answer to " what does this verse mean? Is Jesus telling people to give away all there money or not?" Remember this is not a theology site.

comment What is the original Number of the Beast?
You're not understanding what I'm saying. In English the number is written by writing three consecutive sixes, and so your "18 theory" appears viable. In Greek, though, the number is not written as three consecutive Greek sixes, and so your "18 theory" isn't even possible.

comment What is the original Number of the Beast?
In fairness, the first half of your answer was OK though. But I would delete the 2nd half.

Um... "666" in the Greek is not three Greek sixes. So, no, it's not 18. If you don't know Greek you shouldn't be answering questions about Greek text criticism. -1

comment What would Peter “bind” or “loose” on earth?
@JohnMartin It is not the priest's authority that is in focus here, but rather, the assurance that Peter can have that he is going to be a faithful representative of God's (prior) decisions when judging matters within the church. It is intended to bolster his confidence. (Extend that how you will, to popes, priests, elders, or Christians... I was just focusing on the exegesis, not theology.)

See here for an explanation of the grammar, which the accepted answer did not address.

comment Are there two different types of “tongues” spoken about in the NT?
@user2479 Yes, but the OP's meaning was different than your interpretation of it. You are ripping the OP's question out of its context. The first sentence in the body of the question is "My question comes directly from 1 Cor 14: 2, 4", after which he goes on to explain his confusion over the discrepancy with Acts 2 pertaining to whether the tongues were understood (as I noted.) If the OP had meant what you thought he meant, the question would be off-topic for this site, because this is not a theology site!
