one thing you said here seems like a misunderstanding on my point. it was not about verb TENSE, that was not the point at all. The point was the lack of a verb. And it seems misplaced to me to create a doctrinal position based on the tense of a verb that is not in the text.Jesus is not a court mediator and your suggestion that he is, diminishes his Godhood. He is THE Mediator. Past. Present, and Future.
I'm a professional teacher seth. I have taught college level classes for students struggling with the basic rules of grammar. I must tell you that your grammar skills could use improvement. Of note is your inability to understand the concept of "to be". You do this every time you try to make a distinction. regarding tenses. I detest sloppy English because it is not instructive and it is often just plain ignorant. I don't mean the word 'ignorant' as an insult, it simply means you are uninformed. "I be, She Be, They Be, You Be" are all profoundly wrong. It should be "I am, I will be, I was" All time dependent, yet you ignore this when it comes to scripture.
Now come the double negatives. I have an entire list of such errors. "I ain't got no problem" "I don't have nothing", Here are examples from Grammarly:
- That won't do you no good.
- I ain't got no time for supper.
- Nobody with any sense isn't going.
- I can't find my keys nowhere.
- She never goes with nobody.
- John says he has not seen neither Alice or Susan all day.
- I didn't steal nothing.
- He ain't never told no lies.
- You can't see no one in this crowd.
- There aren't no presents left to open.
Now, notice that knowing the difference between present tense, past tense, future tense matters.
I don't think you are particularly guilty about the double negatives, but there is a reason I posted them. It matters.
You are promoting the misuse of grammar in both the English and the Greek. You are allowing your own beliefs to rule over basic parts of speech communication rules.
We have people here who understand the Greek language (I'm not one of them). When they correct you with the proper tense of a Greek word, you should listen and learn.
Don't even get me started on dangling participles.
Sad that here in America we allow such displays of grammar ignorance.
