The super-irony is that Brian attacks me for making the exact same points against Barry Hofstetter! (Also James Snapp and Bill Brown.)
Rather than helping defend the pure Bible text, Brian is far more interested in attacking me for making sound, accurate defense arguments. His "sources" include the BVDB contras, who follow Bill Brown, who makes the SAME ERRORS!
On 1 John 5:7? I still would but it's not fresh in my mind right now, the Greek speakers would be interested if you can message to me. Regarding the passage as genuine, the most likely date such a passage would have stopped being read in churches would be during the Sabellian heresies. There's too many Latin forms for it to be of Latin origin. It's what we find in independent translations.
I don't feel you are in the position to criticize the Greek of others, even those you oppose, because you have no sure foundation for it. It is a very careless and harmful thing to do. A lot of problems are caused by people who can get on a Greek parser and think they can read it like English, when it can't be. And when corrected, they double down hard and form arguments even worse than they had before. Don't betray trust people may put on you.
What I said was you shouldn't be criticizing people's ability in the Greek language when you have no background in it. You're all over the place because you have no foundation. You can't separate the good from the bad. I have no idea where you are coming up with all the rest of this, none of which ever happened. You're literally making things up.Do you still support your BVDB counselors, and Barry Hofstetter, because, supposedly, they know Greek?
Do you still criticize me for pointing out the truth about the solecism, especially that the issue is only neuter nouns and masculine (or potentially feminine) grammar.
I stood by my previous comments to Hudson, and said as much. I honestly don't know who this Hofstetter person is or what his argument is.
I'm not whining. I'm relating to you that it's not acceptable to go and spread lies about someone and post it on the internet for the world to see as though it were true. It's called slander, but it seems defending yourself against slander in your opinion is considered "whining." You should look in the mirror.You are such a whiner (beyond being weak in English grammar.)
Quoting Gregory of Nazianzus that the passage stands contrary to the rules of Greek grammar (his reading is the same as found in the modern versions) would put the rule making to rest. Either John had a deliberate reason to break the rules, or something is missing.Afaik, I am the only writer who has refuted his paper (which was not difficult.)
So, again, Hofstetter makes claims that (he thinks) totally refutes you vs, Hudson
So you learned Greek overnight?And poor Brian offers no defense, has no understanding, and whines and criticizes my expertise.
