comment What did Pharaoh mean by “sin” and “righteous”?
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.

comment 2 Corinthians 8:1-14: When is willingness to give counted?
Did someone downvote because it offended your religious theology such that a downvote is the only means of defence of your beliefs in lieu of the ability to offer reasonable rebuttal?

comment Is God and an “Angel of the Lord” Interchangeable?
I am not arguing that whether the Almighty is or is not "angel". My argument is that there is no such thing as "angel" as far as the language, grammar, syntax and theology of Genesis to Malakhi, when read in the original Hebrew. My argument is that this argument over "angel" is moot and soot.

comment Is God and an “Angel of the Lord” Interchangeable?
If [מלאך] has to be interpreted as "messengers" then, every occurrence of [שלח] and its various declensions should also be translated as "messengers". It's like calling anyone who operates any machinery an "engineer". It's like calling anyone who touched your life a "messenger". It's fraudulently blurring the meaning of a word and then aliasing it. Aliasing - signal engineering term describing a phenomenon where a signal can fake another signal by sharing its footprint. This is the fraud of retrofitting a pagan concept into Hebrew scriptures.

The fundamental singleton of understanding and interpreting the Bible is to understand the grammar and syntax - without that root node, everything else is pretending to understand the Bible without actually wanting to understand the Bible. Not the grammar/syntax of the English/Greek/Latin which is pointless. If at any place they contradict the masoret - they no longer have legitimacy as being "the Bible".

IF they are introduced in the parts of the Bible after Malakhi - they are not legitimate to me. I am a Hebrew fundamentalist of reading the Bible - and reject all Greek and Latin sources.

In the Hebrew, linguistically and grammatically,, there is. no "angel" or "angels". NONE.

comment Is God and an “Angel of the Lord” Interchangeable?
The strength and potency of my argument is directly proportional to the number of ineffable downvotes I get for it. Ineffable = downvotes for offending their sacred theology but there is no way for them to defend their theology against mine.

comment Is loving your neighbour more than yourself allowed?
My decision in the jury is that abortion is the killing of unborn babies and is horridly wrong, and then rameneutics.avishegnath.net/2014/03/….

comment What does it mean when Queen Vashti “displays her beauty” in Esther 1:11
I cannot let stand to laud Vashti like as though I am criminalizing my own people. The whole question of Vashti vs Esther is an essential question we face in good vs good. It is easy when it is good vs evil, but good vs good are the conflicts that we actually have trouble resolving. That is the nakedness of ourselves we face constantly.

comment Why distinguish the genders of asses/donkeys in Gen 12:16?
Because when you write in Hebrew, you have to write the gender. Every noun, every verb is declined with gender. And then because your translation must be as accurate as possible.

comment After the crucifixion, why was Mary not cared for by her own children, rather than the disciple John?
I am too intellectually bereft to understand this answer. Either that or this answer would not say it directly that the gospels are fairy tales, from we could learn a million "the moral of the story is ... "
