This is actually a quotation from Don Wilkins. I never said this. If not
for academic integrity then for Christian charity, please quote people
correctly. My words were "hardly justifiable" (i.e. inconsistent - an
analytical term not emotive). I base this on the NASB's translation of TWi
PISTEUONTI in 1:16. If the NASB can be neutral in one instance why not the
other? What translation principle is at work in that can explain TWi
PISTEUONTI of 1:16 and hO DIKAIOS of 1:17b being gendered differently? Is
this a taboo question on B-GREEK?
