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 Who is it that “wills” in 1 Corinthians 12:11?
I like Gill but disagree with his comments, but he also sees verse 12 as the Spirit. He admits in v6 that he is departing from most commentators; so let him depart. The ‘same Spirit’ and ‘same Lord’ and ‘same God’ I do think refer to the Trinity. The Spirit is the immediate author of gifts. It is the Lord Jesus whose authority and redemptive work opened the way for they’re being given. It is God the Father, who having exalted the Lord Jesus as the head of the church, sent the Holy Ghost, working all these blessings according to his originating predetermined will and eternal purposes.

comment Is their a name for a hermeneutic that includes experiential esthetics as a criteria of truthful exegesis?
(+1) Cool that is quite closely related. I read the link and it is very interesting even apart from my original question.

(+1) I think you are right, the word 'eisegesis' totally slipped my mind. In this case the Holy Spirit gave a new believer discernment which imposed a correct eisegesis against a false prophet. However that does not validate eisegesis as a form of exegesis, it is almost an opposite subject.

comment Why does everyone in John misunderstand Jesus?
Ironically when Jesus finally begins speaking 'plainly' to his disciples about his death. They do not seem to believe him and take his literal style metaphorically.

I posted an answer not because I originally knew but because I thought I would learn a lot trying to :). Actually I did learn that sometimes the English does not really cut it unless it was a amplified translation using many words. Cheers.

comment What is the judgment in Psalm 1?
Ok thanks. BTW not my downvote I just find it hard to comprehend (at all) what you are saying so was wondering why? I think I understand where you are comming from more now.

Is your 'matrix' hermaneutic something you discovered on you own or have you picked it up from someone else?
