I'm a born-again Christian, active member of the body of Christ, husband and father, and Bible teacher. I love to study Scripture, and firmly believe it is the only credible standard for truth.

Aside from my devotion to God, His people, and His word, I don't really have any loyalty to a particular doctrine or creed.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Could you perhaps edit your post to make your answer to my question more explicit? I'm not sure whether you're saying "yes" or "no," or what exegetical procedure you're proposing, exactly. I think you have some good thoughts, but it's hard to follow as a Q&A. In the mean time, I'll read the article you linked.

comment What is Paul referring to in 1 Timothy 4:14?
Please note that I am asking this on BH.SE intentionally. I am looking for an explanation from exegesis -- not from church doctrine

comment What does the prohibition against women speaking in church in 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 mean?
This is a great answer. You might consider mentioning that Scripture records woman Prophets, Apostles, Teachers, etc. Furthermore, in the same context, "silence" is also commanded of those who would speak in tongues in the absence of an interpreter (28), and yet, no one would argue that they are not allowed to speak or participate in the service aside from this specific order-focused restriction. And recognizing that v.36 should be placed with v.37 further strengthens the case. Besides, for women to keep completely silent in all Christian gatherings is nonsensical. When would they ever speak?

comment Is John 21 a later addition to the Fourth Gospel?
I don't have time for a formal answer at the moment, but until I get around to it, here are a couple of things to note. John 20:30-31 reveals John's purpose in writing this Gospel, but it was not merely recorded as a summary purpose statement. It is the latter part of a flow of thought beginning several verses prior. (Cf. John 19:35 in context)
