Re: Houtos in Matt 5:19
Thanks to those who replied so far. But maybe I didn't
explain myself enough.
The NASB includes the connotation that *by* breaking
a command, this *teaches* others to do the same.
In other words, if someone sees me breaking a command,
they think to themselves `He calls himself a Christian,
and he is doing that - it must be OK' and then they
go and follow my example.
The NIV's translation simply does not include this
connotation. It talks about breaking a command
*and* teaching others to break it - two separate things.
Which is right?
