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 Does the greek word απαυγασμα indicate the person of Christ, or just his qualities?
thanks - this makes some sense to me. Does this shinning glory indicate a tense. What I mean is there anything indicating that it is past, present, continous or complete?

comment How should πονηρός be translated in Matthew 7:11, and why?
@ThomasKemper - I understand your desire for a more technical term. Actually even though my answer is correct I am going to delete it as it is a lazy answer. If I gather a more technical response I will bring it back up. Cheers.

comment Upon whom do we call? Reconciling OT & NT
I do not think the two names can be gammatically equated but many Christians beleive Jeus is the manifested YHWH, i.e. YHWH in the OT is the pre human form of the Son manifested in the NT. Under this view the names are synonyms, theologically not grammatically.

comment Does the Greek verb ὑπακούω generally imply faith?
Helpful, thanks. I guess it does make it personal then, but not directly linked to faith. Faith seems to come in when the person (or their authority) is invisible, yet hearkened unto. I see this verse a little differently now: Romans 10:17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.

comment Does the Greek verb ὑπακούω generally imply faith?
@cdjc - faith is our reply to God's word when received. Seems similar to having faith in Christ. Revelation 3:20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me. I am wondering if 'obey' generally carries this meaning or not? I usually think of obey as less personal and more like following a code.
