I guess that what I'm saying is that I have no real problem with the
case either way. It seems to me that black and white thinking or
a philosophy of proof instead of evidence and the weight of evi-
dence is what can becloud these sort of issues at times. I would
not advocate the delaying of baptism on the basis of a perceived
reading of the Greek, neither would I favor rushing into it on the
same basis. Is the person who fits neither case resigned to the
flames? I think not.
For Greek as a language or as a tool?
