comment Touching a woman and the first Pesukim in Melachim
@DoubleAA its quite simply against the Gemoro. He couldn't touch a woman "affectionately" (b'derech chiba) if he tried! The Gemoro says that isnt the case. In my book of rules, contradicting Chazal deserves a Chas Vesholom. You're welcome to have a different set of rules for yourself.

comment How was Saul a Tzadik if he wiped out Nov?
@yoel yeah i agree, but views that are debatable and are thought the correct Hashkafah by the Tzaddik, not!

comment How was Saul a Tzadik if he wiped out Nov?
@yoel you are right, I dont think you can compare views to sins!

comment How was Saul a Tzadik if he wiped out Nov?
If the Tzaddik did an Averah on purpose, then he is no longer a Tzaddik. It is problematic to believe that even by doing Averos one can still be great! <comment edited for tone - AA>

comment Why does Esther change her name?
@DoubleAA agreed, but with a slight edit his question can be made to ask why did she have two names?

comment Why does Esther change her name?
@DoubleAA Her name doesnt change, a nickname was added according to the Gemara. The OP has got it wrong.

comment If you can only choose one which way should you learn, bekiyus or beiyun?
@DoubleAA first of all the OP did not specify that he is asking for only our generation. Regarding your point of honor the Gemara is still Mashmah that we need one more then the other. I will update my answer to reflect this.

comment If you can only choose one which way should you learn, bekiyus or beiyun?
@DoubleAA unfair argument, no one is making it incumbent upon you to eat the chocolate milk, however if one can only learn one way or the other [and the OP is asking in such a case] then a choice HAS to be made.
