comment How should I interpret Hebrews 12:14 correctly?
* 'righteousness' as I take it is akin to having a "legal" right-standing before* --- that is a conjecture with no scripturally grammatical basis.

This site does not allow questions not based on any specific passage of the Bible. No general questions allowed.

What is the meaning of "righteousness"? Will you be giving me the English meaning, or the Greek meaning or the Hebrew meaning? Are their meanings coincident?

comment What law are you under if you dont live by the spirit
Define "law". Is that definition the same as the Hebrew word [תורה]TORaH? What is the meaning of the word [תורה]TORaH? If the two meanings do not coincide, then what is the implication?

comment Did God make two different covenants with Abram/Abraham
When a man gets married to a woman (or man to man, or woman to woman) - 1st they make a verbal commitment, then they get a marriage licence, then they have a ceremony in Jerusalem honeymoon in Israel, and then they have a ceremony in LA, and then another ceremony in small town Kansas. Did the couple get married a few times? Why do we need to have a discrete quantum, rather than a continuum view of the covenant?

That is why when I ask a question, I would want to ask for references to other verses. But my questions were reprimanded telling me that this site requires to focus on specific verses. Such method of Bible exegesis promoted here will fail and severely reprimanded in a southern baptist seminary.

[הפעם] = this moment = now. For example, Gen 46:30 - did Jacob/Israel say - this occurrence (out of many occurrences of losing you for 13 years) of seeing you, then shall I die after seeing you. ???

You need to step away from the English language when reading the Bible in the original Hebrew (as opposed to modern Hebrew). [הפעם] does not mean "this occurrence" but "this moment". In English, "this time" means "this occurrence". You are projecting your idiomatic usage in English onto Hebrew, which is dangerous to your spiritual life.

Your financial advisor would not tell you - this is an evil way of investing your retirement funds. Rather, she would say - this is an ineffective way of investment and misaligned with the goals of your retirement. The CEO does not say - this is an evil way of implementing your task. Rather, this is an ineffective way, misaligned to the goals of the company. Do not perceive the world with good-vs-evil.

Therefore, the salvation (self-help) of humankind lies in the "secret" of treating our misalignment by purging ourselves of the ineffective perspective of good-vs-evil, to be able to realign ourselves back to the unity, intimacy and closeness with our Creator.

comment Why “from whence” and not simply “whence”?
Yet another evidence that KJV prioritized syntactic beauty over accuracy of translation.
