comment Was the text of Matthew 28:19 changed?
Vince - I added some edits to focus on the texts and not worry about who added to them (Nicea or otherwise). The Hermeneutical question is Was there an addition made to the texts, and, if so, by whom and when?

comment What, exactly, counts as a “vain repetition” (Matthew 6:7)?
Matt - thanks. We want to be sure that we do not load the questions with implicit, pre-biased answers. We want to let the texts speak for themselves. Few of us are interested in opinions (whether from you, from me, or others) - we just want to know what the Biblical text says. Your re-phrased question looks good - thanks!

comment What, exactly, counts as a “vain repetition” (Matthew 6:7)?
Matt - we are going to have to rephrase your questions, because this site is deals with the texts and their meaning, and therefore excludes discussion of dogma. We do not defend or advocate (or judge) the religious views of others, but welcome the analysis of the Biblical texts.

Vince, welcome - I refined your question; hope I captured the gist of your question. Also, feel free to copy the formatting for future posts (for example, how to display and hyperlink the verses for easy viewing). Thanks!

comment What did Paul mean when he said, “ We are seated in the heavenly realms”?
@Jas3.1 - We are still the biological descendants of Adam on this earth (physical bodies), and thus we are still exposed to our inherent rebellious Adamic nature. Thus we are to consider our bodies "dead," since we were united with Christ's death on the cross (Rom 6:5-6).

comment Are the thoughts of the Gentiles conflicting in Romans 2:15?
Frank is there any tie to the New Covenant in the context, where the law is written on the heart (Heb 8:10 and Heb 8:16)?

Friend - please provide an analysis that will better help us to understand your view. Anecdotes do not always help to sway the views of others. If you have an interesting view, please describe your analysis! Thanks!

comment Forgiveness, yes or no?
Thanks for joining us! If you like, you can hyperlink your verse citations, so that with a click anyone can check the verse (to include its wider context). I had a quick question for you: Do you think that overlooking sins (forgiveness or passing over) is warranted in cases where the believer is sinning against the collective body of believers, or perhaps against the authority of the one who is leading those believers? In other words, is there a difference between sinning one-on-one (forgiveness is always unconditional) and sinning one-on-many (forgiveness is sometimes conditional)?

comment What evidence supports Matthew as Paul's source?
I read the article, and the author points to The Fragments of Papias, where there is mention of the writings of Matthew as one of two source documents for the gospel accounts--the other being Mark's Gospel. (Please click here.) Finally, eschatological passages in Thessalonians had possible referents to Mark (Chapter 13). So there appeared only one passage in Matthew that aligned in concept with one passage from Paul, and that concerned the wisdom of the Lord hidden from "the wise and intelligent," who never seem to arrive at truth.
