I am a Canadian, married with kid, and working in Hong Kong. I usually answer posts from a reformed / protestant / evangelical perspective.

People I have encountered on this site seem to be a ‘whole bunch of good people’. Even those who sharply disagree with my own point of view.

I am a huge sinner but am happy knowing God's grace will keep me in his grip.

comment Why doesn't Hebrews mention the temple (naos) anywhere?
I think the basic answer is that the Hebrews author is comparing the foundational meaning of the covenant established with Moses as a mediator and the new covenant established with Jesus as the mediator. It is all about the founding of the different covenants, how they are similar, how different and how the second is argued from the first, under its first principles. There is no real benefit then to focus on things at a period after Moses, i.e. at the time of David and Solomon as this was just a continuation of the principles established during the time of the tabernacle.

comment Does Solomon say that trades, where lifting and carrying are involved, are a punishment for sin?
@JohnUnsworth - Yes every believer suffers under the contradiction of men and I can tell we also share the same comfort by the holy spirit to be gracious under those afflictions by the grace given to us. If we do a word study on the meaning of grace it actually stems from enjoying others and eventually took on the meaning of taking pleasure and being favorable in that warm disposition to the undeserving and finally justification by faith. Yet this initial gracious enjoyment is something I need to survive in the busy city life of Hong Kong. thanks for the comments, obviously we agree. Cheers.
