    Given your past posts - the bar is not real high.

    All the more surprising giving how bad your arguments are. Most Priests and Seminary trained ministers I know have much better arguments and do not engage in fallacy so readily.

    You should listen to my uncle who was a priest for his entire life, he still acts like a jackass and he is 70

    Try reading spiritually. Ever try that? Jesus said he would send a teacher that would lead you in all things.

    I don't know much about Koine Greek other than having read that scholars didn't have the benefit of translation until fairly recently.

    Why would anybody translate the king James into Koine Greek ?


    Koine Greek, also known as Alexandrian dialect, common Attic, Hellenistic or Biblical Greek, was the common supra-regional form of Greek spoken and written during the Hellenistic period, the Roman Empire, and the early Byzantine Empire, or late antiquity. Wikipedia
    Language family: Indo-European > Hellenic > Greek > Attic–Ionic > Koine Greek
    Writing system: Greek alphabet
    Era: 300 BC – 300 AD (Byzantine official use until 1453)
    Early forms: Proto-Greek: Ancient Greek
    Region: Eastern Roman Empire
    ISO 639-3: (includes all pre-modern stages)
    People also search for: Greek language, Ancient Greek, Medieval Greek, Mycenaean Greek

    You never slept, ate meals or walked between classes? You prove your own statement false.

    I only slept a few hours a day, used to have three bibles open all the time, unless I had to go to the hospital for IVs that one day where the devil beat the crap out of me, I found myself passed out in a bathroom stall.

    Lady, you just posted a satire site as proof. Don't talk to me about proof, but it's okay, you are at least as smart as RJ.
