The Hebrew word for fowl in these verses is עוֹף, which means "wing" (winged creatures). Please click here.

Could you develop more information and background? For example, could you compare and contrast why the stones from the Jordan River were used on Mount Ebal with the altar?; that is, you mention Deut 27:1-4 (context of these stones from the Jordan), but you do not develop any of these ideas.

comment What does 1 Corinthians 9:27 literally say?
Artie - thank you for your input. Do you see this verse as a struggle with the old nature, which Paul describes in Romans 7? Paul describes people in his epistles to Timothy who have been discredited; that is, some had turned to follow Satan and/or the world. Can you develop these points while minimizing your opinion as much as possible? In other words, can you make the text tell us what it says about itself with as little of your opinion as possible? That would help us to find what the texts really say, since so many people have so many views about what the texts say.... Thanks!

comment What does “Under the Sun” mean in Ecclesiastes?
Ed - your post is clear and understandable. If I wanted to use your post for teaching others, I would not know where to start (for example, what Bible verses do you reference?). Also, under the sun may refer to an exclusive human viewpoint, since "above the sun" is excluded (which is the viewpoint from heaven). In this way, you can help others understand how you understand the Bible from the Bible. In other words, we want to minimize opinion, and try to show what the texts mean from the texts. Thanks.

I have removed all references to "smoking gun" from my posting. I would rather be in fellowship rather than to make dogmatic assertions. :)

@ScottS - It was my hope that the opinion of the Apostle Paul would make the logical argument less flawed.
