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.

Regarding #2, you could also throw in there the offering if 100 fighting units of sheep‌​!

comment A word for the fallacy of assuming whatever brings God the most glory is the correct interpretation a text?
Calvinism. (Sorry, I couldn't resist...)

comment Rod and Staff (Psalm 23)
When I raised livestock I had both a rod and a staff... the staff is useful in guiding a well-trained animal (that it isn't giving you problems), but it is too light to train an animal that has not yet learned to submit, hence the rod. The rod is useful in training the animal to give in to the lighter touch of the staff. (Of course the rod is also useful for other things, such as defending the animals.)

comment Under a Christian exegesis, is the promise of 'a future Prophet' Jesus, or all prophets culminating in Jesus?
@Mike I didn't want to go into it in this answer, but I actually think this prophecy (like most) is ultimately speaking of something eschatological (Christ), but is also alluding to an immediate natural illustration (the next prophet to arise). However, I think that technically my view is closer to the view I presented in this answer than it is to the "all prophets culminating in Christ" view, because in my view the true fulfillment is Christ - the rest is just for illustration.
